A hidden restaurant above the ocean

A Blanket & A Pillow is another little gem hidden in the trees above the rocky shores of Kata Beach. A Blanket & A Pillow consists of several bamboo terraces connected by uneven staircases. Customers sit in colourful bean bags or the Thai way: around a small round table on a small woven carpet. The excellent music selection adds to the atmosphere, especially if you ordered some fancy cocktails to enjoy by the ocean.

The name ‘A Blanket & A Pillow’ is a direct translation from a Thai idiom talking about Chinese immigrants who relocated to Thailand to start a new life, having only just a blanket and a pillow to start over. And indeed, it fits the cool and easygoing atmosphere and simplicity of the restaurant. You can even rent a tent set on a bamboo platform, or small bungalows in the back.

As for drinks and food, customers can enjoy what the restaurant calls Lunch Boxes, which are Thai dishes priced from 80 to 180 baht, or spaghettis starting at 120 baht. A selection of snacks is also available to go with the cocktails and mocktails.

Finding A Blanket & A Pillow is located on the hill in the north part of Kata, past the Aspasia Hotel and Novotel Phuket Kata Avista Resort, hidden at the end of a small alley where you will find a bit of parking space. It would have been challenging in the past, but with Google Maps, it has become really simple, just get directions from https://goo.gl/maps/M3BWdmxYyU6iVH527.

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world early and never stopped until I settled in Thailand in 1994. Then for the past 27 years, my passion for photography and my natural curiosity has taken me to every corner of Thailand, jumping frequently between Bangkok and Phuket and basically everywhere I could go. I run Phuket101.net and manage large international online travel guides.
