Koh Sire Beach Restaurants / Bars
- Hat Pluem Suk Restaurant – This is a no-frills restaurant on the beach with little huts built of concrete for each table, and plastic chairs. Reviews are generally very positive by past guests. Thai food is the focus, with an emphasis on seafood meals. Some guests were less than pleased with the cleanliness of the restaurant. Prices were considered high by some who said the price is around twice what they would have expected for a restaurant in that area.
Though there are other restaurants on the island, we searched for those with more than 4 stars out of 5 and couldn’t find any more with enough reviews to show you. These are likely newer restaurants which need to build their profiles on Google.
Koh Sire Beach Accommodation
- The Nchantra Pool Suite Residences – In the center of the beach, this is the largest resort available to stay and it gets good ratings on social media review sites. Large, clean, and comfortable rooms were mentioned by more than one guest. The grand pool suites were mentioned as being really a really nice place to stay. There is a gym and spa. Staff were typically very helpful and friendly, though time to check-in and check-out was not fast enough for some guests. Rates begin around 3,000 THB for a night’s stay.
- The Westin Siray Bay Resort & Spa, Phuket – This is listed as a 5-star resort, set on the southern tip of Koh Sire Island. There are three pools, the Horizon Pool has a bar and place to eat and is great for sunset. The hotel provides golf carts to get around the large grounds. Some rooms are up on a hill overlooking the sea which provides a great view. The resort gets very good reviews on social media and is not extravagantly priced at only 3,300 THB per night starting rate.
