We stayed in this hotel for 4 days/3 nights, just like almost all the hotels we have been staying in during our honeymoon. Upon arrival our room was not clean yet, but this was arranged within 10 minutes. The room is very big, in any other hotel you could compare this to a suite. The furniture is a little dated,...

Stayed for 4 nights in early March and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms were more than spacious and very clean. We had a two bedroom overlooking the bay. There was a complete kitchen, with a huge dining table and the view of the bay was lovely from the living room. Bathrooms were huge and very clean. Very upscale... More

As many have mentioned, By The Sea has perhaps largest hotel rooms anywhere on Phuket. We stayed in a 2br "deluxe" which would qualify as a suite in any other hotel. The balcony alone was probably bigger than many hotel rooms around. The view from the 3rd floor was stunning (think Caribbean). Furnishings are in a traditional Thai style and... More

Stayed here for 5 days recently and loved everything about it. We had stayed elsewhere in Phuket prior to arriving and this was an absolute oasis of peace and calm. It is situated a while away from main road shops and restaurants, with a lovely pool, restaurant/bar and that beautiful beach on which you can while away the days listening... More

Our rest surpassed all expectations. We rested at the hotel for 13 days. Enjoyed the tranquility of the beautiful views of the sea and swimming pool. In the evening it was nice to sit in the restaurant and taste delicious.Staff was attentive and friendly. Comfortable large rooms. Beautiful, well-kept area. Thank you for the rest.

Pretty nice hotel with a nice setting. Nice beach. A few small restaurants nearby. (Note: the food in the hotel was so-so at best and more expensive than the nearby places). Take some walks on the beach. There is some pretty cool scenery right near the hotel. The rooms were huge. Small studios with a small kitchen, really. Everything was... More
