Traveled to Phuket with a friend for a much needed mini-vacation from business in Taipei. Unlike most of these reviews, I did not utilize the hotel taxi service from the airport, however, I've heard nothing but positive things about that service so if you don't feel comfortable being bombarded by taxi drivers at Phuket International Airport, I highly recommend you do that. Having made arrangements beforehand, this was not an issue. Anyways, upon arrival at BYD Lofts, you'll receive a fresh towel and complimentary beverage as they check you in; this was greatly appreciated as the weather during the summer months is very hot. I stayed in a two bedroom grande deluxe apartment with my friend which was great because it gave each of us our own bedroom. The apartment is perfectly clean, very spacious, and extremely comfortable (from the couch, to the lounge chairs, to the plush beds which seemed to have an unlimited supply of pillows). The apartment also came with a fully equipped kitchen so if cooking is your thing (it is for me, but not on vacation) then this place would definitely work for you. Breakfast also comes included with your stay and the spread is decent, the usual array of pastries + fresh fruit + eggs etc. For the most part, I had pre-planned this trip with various activities including scuba diving, catching a muay thai fight, riding elephants etc. but the reception desk has plenty of brochures listing these activities and they can easily be set up through the hotel. In my case, the reception desk called my room every time a shuttle may have arrived to take me to those activities, which I found helpful. The hotel is located within a 5 minute walk to Patong beach so beach access is not a problem. At the same time, you get a certain level of privacy as the hotel sits on a quiet side street off the main road that leads to the beach. The hotel also has a rooftop pool which unfortunately I never got a chance to see or use, but if its maintained like the rest of the hotel, I'm sure its nice. All and all, this was my first experience with an apartment style hotel accommodation and I can assure that when in Patong beach, it won't be my last.
