“A private oasis”
This hotel was wonderful! We were upgraded to an apartment and it was absolutely stunning. After several weeks of travelling this place felt like our own private oasis. The hotel is situated on a nice sandy beach with calm waters. It's very quiet and was perfect for our family holiday.
“Romantic, relaxing week by the sea”
Although this isn't a "5 Star" hotel, I was thoroughly satisfied wit the location, room comfort, and especially the service... The breakfast that was served every morning was great with many choices. The location couldn't have been better... Maybe 20-30 years from te beach... I would definitely stay there again...
“Great value for money and good for family.”
We were surprised by the size of the accommodation - two bedroom studio, two bathrooms, kitchenette dining / lounge area. Although no utensils in the kitchen except tea and coffee facilities, but then we didn't want to do any cooking. Staff were lovely, very helpful. Food was very good although a bit expensive when up the beach there were a couple of great value beach bar restaurants. Lovely quiet beach and clean. The hotel pool was small but good. Extra beach, pool chairs needed.
We had a fantastic time. A little out of the way of the hub of Patong Beach, but we liked that. Great Taxi and scooter hire service just down the road. We enjoyed being close to Phuket Town. Good breakfast at the restaurant right on the beach. Overall great value for money, would stay there again.
“a true gem -”
a very relaxing 9 day stay in a beautiful suite hotel. Suitably remote, away from the throngs, but still reasonably close to all tourist spots. Ideal for those to whom relaxation and pampering are the need. A hire car, either book b4 you go or organise thru the hotel, is a necessity. Driving on Phuket is a hoot, so much fun, so littles stress, Absolutely fantastic staff, not one with an attitude other than to totally satisfy your needs. Hotel services are either free or at low cost. Restaurant serves a full breakfast to satisfy any appetite and lunches and dinners, fantastic at more than reasonable cost. Beach swimming only at high tide, but hotel has a terrific full size pool and spa. You will have to go a long way to find a better holiday lodging than this, probably the best we have experienced in our many travels throughout Asia and the pacific. We will certainly return to Phuket, but only if we can be accomodated at "By the Sea".
“3 days of staying became 10 days”
I saw some good reviews and a few bad reviews about 'By the sea'. I picked it for its location (right beside ocean) and price. I booked it for 3 days and were going to find some other hotels to try different locations. Well... I extended and stayed at 'By the sea' for 10days until I left Phuket. The hotel is about 7km far from phuket town and located near Cape Panwa. A motorcycle is recommended(I rented Kawasaki Vulcan 900 and it was a fun riding it). Very quiet place. The room was spacious. It has a small living room, a small kitchen, a good size bathroom with shower stall and a big bed room with balcony with full ocean view(MIne had a good view). Breakfast is included and the restaurant is right beside water. I was alright having it for 10 days. The lady chef Eh was awesome. Love her food. Wireless internet everywhere at the hotel area including the beach area. Free canoes are available to use. I used it everyday to go to small islands (about 2 to 3 km far) which have a small but beautiful and privatized beach. The manager Jack can speak pretty decent English and I didn't have much problems to communicate with other staffs either. Very polite but also pretty friendly staffs everywhere at the hotel. My room was cleaned very well daily and plenty of towels were provided. And there is a best view point near the hotel. You can see 360 degree view of Phuket town and also can see Phi phi island if it is clear day. I will give this hotel 5 out of 5 points.
out of the way location, with private beach.. beautiful accomdations, nice staff, good restaurant.. very great deal! Just not close to Phuket Town or other attractions so taxi's can add up..
The room and view were awesome! Great food and staff! A little bit away from town, but the peace and quiet was awesome!
We really enjoyed this hotel. Staff were lovely (if not very strong in English) the room was really a suite and very beautiful. We had a balcony with chairs and a super view of the ocean and the pool area. Towels were provided for use on beach and poolside, as were very attractive beach bags. The restaurant served delish food. Breakfast is included in the price of the room and it is a full, hot, br fst buffet that was well-prepared, fresh and tasty. Everything was immaculate!!! Such a nice change from Bangkok, which we really enjoyed but found filthy (and we live in China!) Now, drawbacks: you were far from any real towns or villages but the free shuttle would take you places if you wanted to wander a bit. At night it was peaceful and quiet, the TV was large and many stations in English were available. There was also HBO. So, overall, the place is GREAT! I almost forgot to mention, there is also a nice fitness room with weights, etc.
“Relaxing setting; good views; away from the noise”
Checked in for three nights earlier this month. Large, modestly furnished but impeccably clean rooms. We had a two bedroom suite that must have been close to 1000 sq ft, with great sea views from the balcony. There are 3-4 hotels on this small beach strip, about 10 minutes away from town and traffic. So, you may want to consider a rental car for non-beach activities. Overall, great experience and would highly recommend this hotel.
