Crowne Plaza Phuket Panwa Beach Resort has been rebranded

As from 13th April 2013 The Crowne Plaza Panwa Beach Resort has been rebranded to

PHUKET PANWA BEACH RESORT. And now has a change of management Makham Beach Company.

I would imagine this will cause confusion as there is also a hotel in the locality

PANWA BEACH RESORT PHUKET used to be NOVOTEL

Yes absolute confusion indeed. Not just for the taxi drivers but how many guests are going to book into the wrong Panwa Beach Resort when the name is up and running on the booking sites.

This hotel I am informed will be rebranding again at a later date. It was just easier for them at the moment to just remove Crowne Plaza from the name. Hopefully any confusion will not be for long.

Yes you are correct Meeko as they have taken over the Crowne Plaza website and re-named it.
