I have been coming down to Phuket for more than 12 years and have always stayed in hotels but decided to make a change on this trip and try a serviced apartment. The BYD Lofts has all the amenities I need, yet rooms you would dream of in a hotel. The BYD is a very special experience , and lives up to its number one rating on Trip Advisor. The location is perfect, being close enough to all the action yet in its own little Oasis location. The rooms are spacious and classily furnished to a very high degree, and have many little, but important touches which pushes this "BYD brand" above most hotels. Which hotels amongst other things provide a coffee capsule machine, a very modern kitchenette and large TV and sound system? It is clear they have thought of everything in the design and set up of this top class experience. Before I came I read one negative report about the staff which I now cannot believe because in every aspect I have found all the staff to be very courteous, friendly and efficient and of course smiling. Also the BYD restaurant is a real find and a definite place to visit even if your not a resident. Sophisticated high quality food puts it right up there with the top of the best eating establishments in Patong, but also has an ambience and atmosphere that sets it a apart. The menu is uncluttered but has a comprehensive choice that should appeal to all palettes. I have to say, after this more flexible experience I will find it hard to return to the normal hotel set up. Thank you for a memorable experience.
