We have just got back home after staying for 2 weeks in BYD Lofts. We booked direct with the hotel and stayed in a Grand Deluxe room in the main building. The room was exceptionally comfortable with all mod cons and has been tastefully furnished and decorated. It was lovely having our kitchenette (although only used for storing drinks and water) it would have been quite possible to prepare snacks as there is a full size fridge and freezer. We made use of the coffee maker each morning which was an added bonus (coffee pods provided). The first class wi-fi which enabled us to access our ipad and phones etc was a real bonus for us. My husband has to keep track of his emails while on vacation, so this would be an ideal place for the business traveller. The room was serviced to a very high standard every day with plenty of clean towels (including beach towels). Our room had an iron and ironing board in the closet (which I didn't use!) The swimming pool area is a little on the small side, but very nicely organised. The couple of times I went up there alone while my husband did some emails I did manage to get a bed, but the hotel wasn't full.
The staff were friendly and helpful and always greeted us with a smile. The breakfast was good with enough choice. The semi open air eating area/bar is particularly pleasant and we had several meals in the evening here also. The food is very good and reasonably priced.
The hotel is literally a 5 minute walk to Patong beach, but that 5 minutes is enough to be back from the hustle and bustle that is Patong !
All in all, a magnificent stay. We would definitely return if we go back to Phuket.
