    Great hotel in a quiet area of Phuket”

    Perfect hotel to escape the masses

    Our family enjoyed our stay at By the Sea. The kids loved the pool and it was great to be right on the beach. We enjoyed the natural beach and often swam in the sea, which was great. Cape Panwa is however not the best place to snorkel in Phuket because the sea is a bit muddy. The hotel has a great restaurant. We can really recommend the fixed menus. The shuttle service to Central Festival Mall (close to the weekend market area in Phuket City) was also very helpful. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

    Perfect quiet beach getaway and assistance of an F & B Manager, to purchase local produce and cooked by Hotel Chef to your liking

    nested in a serene and tranquil environment, cape panwa, as opposed to the bustling patong beach, is the perfect quiet beach getaway. the hotel has direct beach access and provides guests with free wifi. activities such as canoeing, cycling and snorkeling equipment are available from hotel. the hotel runs a complimentary shuttle service to big c (supermarket) and central festival shopping centre. due to its popularity amongst guests, advance booking must be made. at 4pm, the resort runs a shuttle service to a market, with assistance of an f & b manager, to purchase local produce. the seafood, vegetables will be prepared, at a small fee by the hotel chef to your liking. dinner will also be served at a time of your choice. an eating outlet located on the left side of the road, just a stone’s throw from the hotel, serves up a delectable a la carte menu. enjoy your sumptuous meal by the beach, overlooking chalong bay. we have truly enjoyed our stay in by the sea residence hotel and will not hesitate to revisit during our next trip.

    the quiet life....”

    beautiful view, very quiet,
    taxis are expensive if you dont have your own transport

    We loved this hotel and its surounds as there are very few tourists that go to Cape Panwa. You need some kind of transport, motor bike from Novatel next door 350 baht/day. Restaurant at hotel is good and the setting is great, but if you want a different or cheaper option the seafood restaurant (with tables and chairs in water, to the left up beach is fantastic) You dont know what youve been missing until you try the banana and chocolate pancakes next to restaurant. My husbands favourite pancake in pineapple and chocolate. Its not on the menu, but after our second visit they bought it especially for him. We used the kayaks and tried to canoe to the island across the bay to snorkel, unfortunately there was something in the water that made us sting and itch so we had a quick look at the island and paddled back. From then on we swam in the pool. You can only swim in the ocean here at high tide any way because at low tide the reef is exposed. They have gumboots you can wear if you want to walk on the reef. There is quite a bit to see. The better the accommodation in Thailand the harder the bed and the higher the pillow, this was no exception. if you like a soft pillow you'd better bring one from home. Dont expect internet in thailand to work like it does at home. some days its good, and some its not. This hotel at least has internet at no extra cost. We loved our stay here and would stay again. The view from the top floor is worth the extra + the rooms are much bigger.

    Beautiful stay on quiet side of Phuket”

    quiet location; quiet hotel; beautiful views; friendly and efficient staff; good breakfast; free wifi; book exchange; beach towels flips flops and bag in your room made heading to the pool or beach easy; 4 free bottles of water; good free weights; good breakfast (ours was included in rate; free shuttle to Phuket town had 2 dropoffs and you could pick up groceries at the Central Mall stop
    Restaurant was really very overpriced for Thailand and it seemed like everyone staying there went elsewhere for dinner.

    turned out to be a fantastic stay, and we had nearly the run of the place to ourselves. Apparently it was a slower week there, although they seemed to have tour groups running from there.There were three large buildings with about 15 rooms on each “wing” on a hill, all of which had great sea views. Our room was in the “C” block and overlooked the pool on the second floor (ground and second floor). We loved the view, although we suspected it might be quieter in the blocks behind us due to the restaurant and non pool noise. There is a small pool, and the hotel was right on the beach. Phuket has quite different tides, and swimming at high tide meant that the water came up nearly to the top of the beach, leaving only a scant amount of sand. When the tide was out, a huge amount of coral/rocks were present. The hotel also had free wifi in the lobby area reading room, a book exchange, a fitness room with weights, free mountain bikes and 2 kayaks. We also asked for kitchen utensils and they promptly delievered a set to us. The room was huge and included a two way accessible bathroom with separate shower and tub and full amenities, a nice sized fridge, and L shaped couch and TV in the living room with a small table and two chairs. There was also a deck set on our balcony.Lastly, it had the best regulated hot water we had in Thailand – we loved it. We truly had a great time chilling out, working out in the gym, riding bikes up to the viewpoints and kayaking across to the bay. Our only criticism was the price of the restaurant food. The restaurant was set right on the water, but cost $7 USD or so for a Thai entrée, though they did include rice; small bottled waters cost USD $1, plus 15% tax and service charge. A meal there set us back $18 USD. The food quality was good the first lunch we had there, not great the second time (deep fried chicken satays!!). Many of the hotel guests seemed to walk up the beach for dinner (there were a few local places sprinkled on t

    Family Holiday”

    We stayed at this hotel for 12 nights. We had the time of our lives. The beach is picturesque during high tide . There are few places where you can lie in the shade of a tree on the beach with the sea just meters from your feet. The unit that we had was on the 4th floor with an uninterrupted view of the bay. It was enormous and matched the photos that we saw on the website. We had a few small issues in the room like the safe not working but as soon as I reported it someone attended to it promptly. I saw a lot of negative comments regarding the fact that the staff can not speak English. My view is that when you visit a foreign country you should expect language difficulties. The staff work extremely long hours and ALWAYS had a smile on their faces and we managed communication fine. We had a rental vehicle so we did not have difficulty getting around but it might be a challenge if you don't have one. We had a wonderful time and it felt like going home each night. Thank you By The sea!!!

    good hotel with great service and staff”

    We had a big family room which has too much room for us because of very big living room we didn't need although two adults and two big daughters. Both bathrooms very good and other one has also bath. The bedrooms were also big enough but maybe bed a little bit hard for me. The view from room was very nice to the sea and to the pool which was good for children also because of depth 150 cm. Breakfast was also good with various food. Staff at this hotel was very friendly and helpful and service excellent. Only a little bit too expensive food compared to the beach restaurants very near this hotel. Maybe owner of this hotel should to think to reduce prices a little bit. I was ready to pay a little bit more but not 50% or over. The beach looks very nice but unfortunately not so nice to go swimming because of stones and corals in the sea which cannot see because the water is not clear. The area around the hotel was very peaceful this time of year and probably every time. The hotel has free shuttle to Phuket town two times per day and it was very good! Taxi would cost at least 500 baht. We were one time at Patong beach and taxi from there cost 800 - 1000 baht. Hotel has also a self-service laundry for 100 baht and we consider it also very good. I can recommend hotel for families and couples who want relax in some peaceful place for some days or one week. We were there one week. The place is not good for people who want night-life and bars etc. Location is too far from these kinds of places.

    Stunning sea views”

    Sea views,spacious rooms,restaurant by the uncrowded beach

    I was delighted to be upgraded to a huge suite on the top floor which was spacious and clean,slightly dated decor but with stunning sea views from the enormous balcony. Watching the sunsets from there was a real treat.Plenty of storage space,well equipped bathroom,efficient air conditioning and 3 televisions(!!)with only a couple of English programmes which were poor quality.It was quite a walk down to the beach and restaurant but I didn't mind as I loved the room location.If you had small children or walking problems,better to be on a lower floor.The breakfast was adequate,not a huge range of choices but very good coffee.The service at other meals was quite slow,many of the hotel guests seemed to go to other beach cafes in the evening as the restaurant was never full.The hotel is in a quiet location on the Cape Panwa,far from the madding crowds of busy resorts so taxis are needed to get to shopping places,markets and other attractions,though there is a free hotel shuttle bus twice a day to a huge Western shopping mall..Overall a very peaceful holiday with friendly staff in an unspoilt location and a chance to read plenty books!!

    This is the umpteenth time I've stayed at "By the Sea Residence" and it is my most preferred hotel in Phuket. Being in Phuket for business rather than leisure it is convenient for Phuket town, is quiet, is inexpensive, has free Internet facility, has a good pool for swimming laps and terrific staff. Breakfast by the beach is a wonderful start to the day. I shall continue making this hotel my Phuket "residence".

    We looked for a hotel out of the city, in a quite place with nice sea shore and we got it. Very quite. The sea is just besides the hotel. We took a canoe and rowed in the quiet sea. wonderful. The room was very big to host us with three kids. We had a garden with grass right out of the room. The staff was very nice and helped us in any need. There is a good restaurant not far away from the hotel on the beach. Unfortunatly there is no place for massage except for one place on the shore that works few hours a day. The hotel is far from the city (Phuket or Patong). We went to the city only once so it did not bother us.

    By The Sea Residence-Phuket”

    Beautiful view from the balcony, overlooking the beach and pool, friendly staff, very clean rooms with kitchenettes and living area, excellent value for money
    far away from tourist attractions, balconies were not private

    We were very happy with our stay at By The Sea Residence and wished we could have stayed for more than one night. The rooms were immaculate, with a kitchenette, living area, bedroom and balcony with a beautiful view of the ocean and the pool. The only downside was the location, it was far away from restaurants, attractions, and shopping. However, this hotel would be good for couples who just want to get away and not be bothered by the busyness of other beaches in Phuket.

    A great stay”

    On the sea front, with its own pool, and nice large room. The staff were friendly and helpful. Buffet breskfast was western and hot, an huge. We live in Phuket so this was place for us to rest for a few days, so we did not have to think about touristy things. There are a couple of beachfront restaurants near our hotel, cheap and good food. We preferred the nearest one although the second had more customers, but the hotel itself sells food all day and it is reasonably priced and tasty. The upper rooms are a steep climb to the pool and sea, but there is a golf cart if you wish. 7 eleven and pharmacy are located just up the road. In summary, highly recommended

    Pleasant Surprise”

    Location, View, Service

    The room was more than I had thought it would be. Front room with TV, table, chairs, couch and coffee table, kitchenette, refer filled with beer, muchies and two free waters. Bedroom was large and comfortable with a bench for my case (hooray, desk and chair, closet,safe, and sliding glass door leading to your own small patio and chairs. Beyond that was a vast expanse of lawn and a wall, this actually is the roof of the floor of rooms below. This hotel is built on a steep sloop leading to the beach, resturant and pool. This stair step concept is done well and makes for a quiet stay. Being on top the view is spectacular. I was hungry from my trip and walked down to the resturant on a steep stairway path. When I got there, I was told that i could have requested the golfcart for transport, I did from then on. The happy hour menue was extensive and lasted most of the day. Everything was 99TB about 3US$...the spring rolls ended up being my favorite. Breakfast was included and very substantial and good selection. Had the international buffet on first evening as I just wanted to relax and not venture out...it was done well and had a good time with the chef as we prepared my selections...we as since there was hardly anyone around I got to get behind the wok and have at it...what a good time. The staff are excellent and speak English in a manner that works. The deck and tables are right along the beach if you like. The manager arranged my day trips for me, by this time I had stopped doing this on my own as I found I got a better trip if I let them do the booking. (Live and learn) The bay was warm to swim in, the sand clean, sun lounges comfortable, and a good shower coming off the beach. Pool was good size and very clean with a jacuzi type area at one end. Pool surrounded by trees which provided much needed shade for the afternoon heat yet good for catching the rays in morning. My stay was relaxing, comfortable and enjoyed.

    Great Hotel, stunning, quiet location”

    Location, good sized, clean rooms, good service.

    this hotel is in a beautiful location, with stunning views of both a lovely bay and the big buddha. it is in a quiet part of phuket, which appealed to us as we were looking to have a real beachy holiday. the hotel had large, clean, well maintained rooms and a great deck for sitting and watching the sun go down. the restaurant was good and the breakfast supplied each morning was of an above average standard, with great variety. the staff are helpful and generally quite friendly. there is a taxi service just outside the gate. this hotel may not be suitable for elderly or disabled persons as there is quite a walk from the beach up to the rooms at the top of the hotel. we would return to this hotel if we were ever to travel back to phuket.

    Wonderful hotel by the sea”

    right on the beach, beautiful view, nice employees, good breakfast, nice pool
    kind of far away from things

    By the Sea is a very nice hotel if you want to get away from it all. It truly is right on the ocean and there is a small but private beach right in front. there is also an awesome gyspy restaurant to the left of the hotel if you are looking at the water. it is a must go! the food is so good and so cheap, we went there both nights. the breakfast is good at by the sea and the people working there are so nice. there is good a/c and cable. and the views from the rooms are beautiful.

    quiet & peaceful”

    away from hustle & bustle of touristy areas, quiet, free shuttle to town for shopping, clean lovely rooms, free wifi in reading room, very helpful staff
    lunch & dinner a bit pricey

    This is a lovely hotel far from the madding crowd... no nightlife, glaring neon nights or club music... the only music in fact comes from the next-door Novotel which features live music a few nights a week. The rooms are either huge or gigantic -- one is about 650 sf (maybe 60 sm) the other is about 1200 sf (appx 110 m) -- both are spotlessly clean, with beach towels, beach bag, umbrella, plenty of towels & nice amenities... we went into town and bought fresh fruits/veggies, jasmine rice & curry pastes, asked the kitchen to bring up a cooking set & made most of our own meals... buffet breakfast is fine, very well-laid out: some kind of noodle dish plus some sort of potatoes and/or pancakes/waffles plus usual selection of western breakfast meats/pastries plus cooked-to-order eggs by a white-hatted chef... very nice cappuccino machine too, serve yourself but be careful since sometimes the Germans will dial it to "strong" -- !! Beach is good for swimming only during high tide (no snorkeling), but the pool is nice-- shady and long enough for laps . Only one slight problem is when tour groups come (usually from China) & their tourist sensibilities haven't yet been fully developed... spitting in the pool, rude meal manners, shouting in public places -- but usually there is a nice mix of European/Brit pensioners, honeymooning couples, Russian families and Chinese & Korean tour groups... overall a huge difference here compared to the noise, crowds & stink of other highly touristy beaches on the west coast... it's a perfect little idyll, easy to spend a few weeks and escape from the daily grind...

    Wonderful View!”

    location & views
    Internet coverage only near reception area

    My favourite hotel in Phuket. Very accommodating staff; ever willing to please with exception service. Very large rooms/suites with a wonderful view across Ao Chalong. This area of Phuket is very quiet so don't expect any night-life! But dining "by the sea" is a great experience - who needs music & noise? I will return here over and over again.

    Family Friendly Resort that is By The Sea!”

    1.Quiet & Safe Environment for the Kids. 2.Conveniently next to the Sea

    By The Sea Residences is a Quiet and Safe Resort that is situated next to the Sea unlike most of the resorts at some of Phuket's more popular beaches (Patong, Kata, etc.)which you will need to cross a road to get to the beach. Also, the sea is very calm which is Great for small children. In addition, the staff are very friendly and the rooms are in good and clean condition.

    Perfect getaway 180 degree all beach view ”

    The location is really far away, must get your own car to drive, or else the taxi fee will drive you crazy. But because of its far away location, it’s quiet and perfect getaway from hustle. The hotel is very new and some parts are still under renovation. Room is large and we got a enormous backyard grassland on the ground floor. And 180 degree view of the whole beach! It’s excellent and exciting. Breakfast buffet is great, just a few steps away from the beach. You can walk directly to the beach from the restaurant. Hotel staffs are nice and friendly. The room service surprised us by making towel elephant and flowers decorations on our bed.

    Good value hotel with great seaview and breakfast”

    Great breakfast by the sea, friendly manager, spacious rooms with sea view, good value

    We love staying at By the Sea Residences because of the spacious rooms with a fantastic seaview at a reasonable rate. The breakfast is delicious and in a great setting by the sea where kids can play in the sand or pool while parents have an idyllic breakfast. There is a nice restaurant called the Beach Bar just 150m away along the beach. The location is quite out of the way but conveniently near Phuket Town if you rent a car to get around. The rooms have an odour due to some plumbing issue which we have given feedback to the manager. The manager is very enthusiatic about asking for feedback.

    Nice Resort Away From the Crowd, Spacious Apartment, But Too Far Fr Anything”

    Hotel we chose: By The Sea Resort, Panwa Beach A 2 bedder suite we got for S$200/night from Agoda website. Pros: + Spacious apartment with balcony, bathtub + Great views all around + Separate pool for the kiddos (yes it's important) + Nice resort with plants all over, just relaxing + Right on the beach + Peaceful, not crowded area Cons + Chalet kind of feeling. If you need full hotel service, this is not it + Needs more maintenance Power trip on our room the first night, and water leak on the last day + It really is away from shops and a lot of things So that's a little inconvenient and you spend more time on the road getting to places
