|“Great location, off the beaten path and awesome accomodations!”
We loved our stay at BYD lofts, it was in an amazing location, close to beach but not in the middle of all the hustle and bustle so our street was nice and quiet but we were close enough to the party! The rooms/lofts were beautiful. We were travelling with another couple and their room was a little different but equally as nice, they all have the same new stylish feel. Rooms were spacious and included a full living room and kitchen. So you can cook your own meals (our friends cooked breakfast) or you can roder to your room, we had breakfast delivered and they set it up in the kitchen, so nice! Food was excellent, come of the best dining we had in Phuket, both breakfast delivery, which we highly reccomend, you can order one breakfast and split for two because it was so big, and the food at the restaurant downstairs, must try the Pad Thai... the downside is that the service at the restaurant is really slow so plan for a longer dinner time. The bar made an awesome mojito and great drinks overall! Also, the service people try really hard to accomodate, they don't always get it right (took a day and a half to resolve our fridge problem) but they do try and in the end we got a replacement fridge. They'll book tours for you, book a massage lady to your room (highly reccomend as well, it's about twice the price as street massage but it's super cheap for a massage in Thailand anyway so why not do it in the comfort and privacy of your beautiful loft!), they orders car services for you and even book your dinner reservations, very helpful! Also, location meant a big deal to us because were were there for Songkran, Thai New Years, which they celebrate by throwing water on you, and the fact that our hotel was a off the main streets meant we were protected from being water attacked as soon as we stepped out of our hotel, this was a very nice added benefit. Songkran was awesome but soemtimes you just want to make it to dinner dry and have some water peace for an hour or two!
