|“Quite simply the best accomodation in Patong.....”
We stayed at the BYD Lofts for 10 nights – 01/10/2012 to 11/10/2012. Having stayed in Phuket a number of times previously we wanted somewhere more suited to family accommodation as we were travelling with 3 children (13, 12 & 7). The decision to stay at BYD Lofts was made purely as a result of the fabulous Trip Advisor reviews.
The rooms are modern, offer an amazing amount of space (and storage).and are immaculately maintained and serviced. The 2 bedroom Grand Deluxe Apartment we stayed in (Room 305) had 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a spacious living area incorporating a kitchen and a balcony that wrapped around our entire apartment. BYD Lofts have a range of apartment sizes that suit individual travellers or families. The promotion pictures shown of these apartments, on the website, is exactly what you get!
The property is located in a quiet soi, without all the noise and congestion, and its position is perfect with Patong Beach a 3 minute walk away, 5 minutes to Bangla Road and Jungceylon and the Otop Markets (one of our favourite hang outs) only a 15 minute walk.
We enjoyed breakfast each morning in the restaurant but didn’t utilise it for lunch and dinner as there are so many great eating places in Phuket. Having travelled to Phuket previously we wanted to return to our favourite places and discover new places as well. The breakfast choices were great although the children soon got tired of the same thing every morning. Our only suggestion would be to provide a buffet style breakfast which would allow more choice and variety if you are on an extended stay at BYD Lofts. The other suggestion would be to supply water to guests with meals. We dine out regularly, both at home and overseas, and haven’t encountered a restaurant that doesn’t provide water free of charge, especially given that it’s an open air restaurant in a hot and humid climate.
Each and every staff member are warm, respectful and helpful, which is an endearing trait of all Thai people and the level of service they provide is outstanding. The personal touch management and staff have when interacting with guests is so much better than the other large beach resorts in Phuket where there is little personal attention.
We would recommend BYD Lofts to anyone and when returning to Phuket will book again. It is an outstanding property and the staff are a testament to true hospitality!
