Overall was satisfactory. In a seclude part of Phuket, good for spending times with loves one or family. the Wifi is very slow and distorted, so this keep you away from your phone on device, instead focusing on total relaxation.

Fun in the sun

We have just returned from anther fantastic holiday at By The Sea. This is the 5th time we have stayed there and will be booking again next year. I would like to thank Suwaree and her team for going out of their way to make our holiday most enjoyable. No request was too much effort. The rooms are fantastic. We were a party of 5 (My Mom, my wife, and 2 children aged 7 and 10) and we fitted comfortably into 1 suite. This hotel is perfect for young families and couples looking for a relaxing holiday away from the hubbub of Patong. The hotel is isolated so if you are looking for night life this is possibly not for you. There is however a daily bus that will take you into Phuket Town should you want to do any shopping. There is also a 7/11 and Family Mart within walking distance should you need any supplies. The hotel backs right onto beach with restaurants within walking distance. I have 2 minor requests 1) more chairs around pool and 2) a microwave in the rooms. Thanks again Suwaree for a fantastic holiday.

A quite place to stay

The room is spacious and tidy. I love the bag (with two towels and a beach mat) they provide for going to the beach, which is very considerate. The view is also excellent especially for the sunset. Since the rocks are quite sharp underneath the water, we only do canoeing (the resort also provides it for free!!!). You can have food and self laundry services (another thing I really love since the washing machine also dries the clothes, it’s so much convenient) at a cheap price.
