“Good value in Surin Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2011

This place is a very good value for overpriced Surin Beach. Maybe it doesn't look nice from outside, but rooms are really OK. Big, very clean, nice beds, friendly people - what else do you need? This hotel is very close to the beach. Their breakfasts are pretty poor, but for us it wasn't a problem.

This is a great little hotel, close walking distance to a nice, chilled beach in Phuket. It is located in Surin, which is not party city but is nice, and most of the hotels nearby are top notch, expensive 4 & 5 star resorts, but this one feels more family run and closer to local restaurants etc.
Cons - Shower splashes over whole floor of bathroom & no pool

Room Tip: Higher floors = better views

I am working in a 5 star hôtel in europe, so you can imagine my expectations! Benyada is a Lodge so not 5 stars but deserve at least 4 because of the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the room. We choosed the junior suite and it was spotless and you feel directly at home. Budget wise for Surin this is also a Good choice because Many (5*) hotels aroud are not up to standards and much more expensive. Breakfast is average but dining is very good. Location is very quiet at 2 minutes from the beach. For those who like animated spots, you'd rather choose Karon or Kata but for relaxation, this is the place to be.

For a budget priced, close to beach experience in lovely Surin Beach youd be hard pressed to beat this nice hotel.....

My wife and I stayed at the Benyada Lodge at the recommendation of a friend who lives in Surin Beach.
He said it's the best place for the price (approx. $65/night with a internet deal) and he described it as "basic". Compared to the other hotels in that area, which charge $165/night or more, it was a deal. However, you do get what you pay for in this case. The rooms were shabby, in need of fresh paint and newer "things". Many room furnishings were broken or "loose" or in some way less than functional. The shower especially was a disaster. The soap dish falling off the wall and the tile floor was cracked and full of black mildew in the corners and general discoloration. Not pleasant. The place could use a renovation.
On the other hand, the positives included fast and free computers in the downstairs lobby. A tasty breakfast, fresh and ordered off the menu. And a nice open air patio in front, with a nice view of the street for drinks, coffee and breakfast. I never ate there so I have nothing to say about the food from the restaurant. Also, the location was quite convenient for walking to the beach and getting a taxi at the stand across the street.
Would I stay there again? I'd probably research someplace else in the area and spend some more money next time.

We were there for 11nights and so had too much time to notice the flaws. There is no lift which would be a problem for the less able- ask for a low floor. The cleaning of the bedrooms lasts all day with piles of laundry along all corridors from 9 to 5. We never saw a manager or owner.
But the area is lovely, the beach is fab, the restaurant good, most staff friendly and helpful, bedroom rather stylish.
Would probably go there again but not stop as long.

i stayed in march 2011 for 4 days at the hotel. very friendly service. breakfast is nothing special , but ok. very good located. just cross the street and 100 m to the beach restaurants.Can not say anything about the normal food because i ate always outside of surin. but can recommend the place which is quiet. but please not ask them for the taxi to the airport. they ask 800 bth (better: the taxi driver asks). they should recommend that you can also go with tuk tuk to the airport for 400 bth. juts walk to the plavece where the tuk tuk wait for you, 100 m left from the hotel

Room Tip: i booked with latestays
