“The perfect chill out!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

This hotel was amazing! After spending 5 nights in Karon Beach which is a bit more touristy and hectic we stayed here for 4 nights and it was the perfect getaway. The hotel staff are fabulous, really friendly and the resort itself is amazing!

We had a seafront room which had the most wonderful view to wake up to. There are 3 fab pools all with views onto the sea. The sea itself is calm and shallow for a long way out making it perfect for swimming in or making the most of the kayaks and stand up paddle boards provided.

The breakfast was delicious and we dined in the Thai restaurant once which was also good, although not quite as good as other places we tried during our stay. We also visited Phuket town and cape Panwa which were within easy access if you fancy somewhere a bit busier for the day/evening.

I would definitely recommend this resort if you want to chill out and feel spoilt but also be within easy access of some more touristy destinations.

Room Tip: Definitely a sea view, its a view you never get sick of waking up to!

Pool:
There are 2 great nice pools. Both faced to the beach and next to it.

Beach:
It is not long but calm. Have great different look between high & low tide. Can swim in high tide, but walk in low tide.

Breakfast:
Good quality with Aisan, Thai & European food. Nice, clean and tidy set up. All food are fresh and tasty. You can sit inside the restaurant with air conditioning or sit outside to enjoy the sunshine & sea view.

Room / Environment
The room is clean & tidy. All necessarities are in order except disposal slippers. The environment is nice and impressive with friendly staff.

Location:
A quiet place. This hotel location is 1 hr from airport, 45 min from Patong, 15 min from Phuket Town. Only one nearby local restaurant outside the hotel. The price is cheaper but not much variety.

Shuttle Bus:
Shuttle bus to Patong ($300 baht each/one way), Central Festival Mall & Weekend Market ($150 baht each/one way).

Visitor:
Many Chinese.

Improvement:
1. Unexpected huge volume of music (just like in a disco) almost until midnight during the day with a wedding party.
2. Different cost for same food. Having ordered fish & chips from the pool side bar (Splash) with $250 baht but the one ordered from main pool bar with a higher price of $370 baht. Having the fish & chips at the pool side (not inside restaurant) but charged me with different cost.

Overall: Good for value for a 5-star hotel.

Work hard, play hard and stay here.

I have been lucky enough to stay in a number of 5 star hotels around the World and this is right up there with the best. We booked this as it had some great reviews on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed in the slightest. We did not want to be in the hustle and bustle (you go to Bangkok for that) yet wanted somewhere close to Phuket town and this fitted right in. Hotel has everything you expect from a 5 star place and the buffet breakfast was fantastic despite being a bit cold in the restaurant, so we chose to sit outside and eat our breakfast.

The spa suites are superb and each have there own steam room and Jacuzzi, which can be enjoyed before or after your massage.

There are 3 pools, 1 of which is for the benefit of those staying in swim up rooms. We also noticed suites with their own balcony pools. Entrance & reception area to the hotel really set the standard of this place and the space and openness are a great place to enjoy a drink from the 3 bars, which have alternating happy hours.

There is not a great deal to do immediately outside the hotel complex with only a couple of small eating places and a massage place, however if you can afford to stay here you can afford to take a taxi into town.

There is a shuttle bus that takes you to the local market for a few baht for a 3-hour trip, which was well worth it. There are some water sport activities on the beach if you are into kayaks, kayak fishing and paddleboards.

Yes, the sea is 300m when the tide goes out, but this did not bother us as mentioned in other TA reviews.

The only negative point I can possibly think of, in this otherwise perfect place, is the size of the small beach umbrella’s. The sun here is fierce and these offered little protection.

Great place, great stay & would recommend.

We stayed one night on our way to another island. The hotel itself is beautiful, and modern. The pools are amazing, as is the terrace bar. The beach on the other hand, is not for swimming. It's shallow and when the tide is out if you like mucking around in the mud looking for sea creatures it's great, but otherwise, you really can't swim.

We did not eat at the hotel, but ate across the street at Sam's, which was very reasonable and tasty.

The hotel taxis are expensive, I'd talk to the tour operators across the street or down the beach.

one thing we were surprised by was the breakfast buffet. It was INCREDIBLE. Best bread and pastry I've had around the world, great variety or all ethnicities. They had western style cereal and eggs, and toast! And Asian noodles, vegetarian sushi, and home made ice cream. Breakfast was absolutely fantastic and exceeded our expectations.

We tried to get a ferry price from the concierge, but that didn't work out very well, as like the taxi, we ended up at the tour operator across the street.
It is far from everything, and you will need to use a motor vehicle to go anywhere.

This is definitely one of the best hotels in phuket. The views are amaZing from this sea side resort especially its amazing pools. The place is clean. Service is outstanding n there is always help at hand. The only disadvantage being that it is far away from the bustling patong beach which is the centre for all activities m parties at phuket. Takes nearly an hour to reach there ao pl keep it in mind if u r planning on taking a leisurely stroll to n from ur parties :)

My wife and myself celebrated our honeymoon at this resort and had the best time ever!

We stayed in their comfy terrace loft which had all the amenities to just unwind.

Despite the language barrier, the hotel staff spared no efforts to giving us their best service. The food was excellent that we ordered a fair bit through room service. We spent most of our time in the pool connecting to our loft and the jacuzzi as well.

Am already planning my next trip there and would definitely recommend this resort to anyone who like some quiet time with their other halves.

This is the one! The staff on arrival were so friendly and accommodating, they were all dressed very smartly, and gave an excellent first impression! Also the hotel itself is visually stunning! And the detail in design is really quite amazing, our room had every amenity you could ask for! 2 giant flat screen televisions! Two bathrooms,Coffee maker, jacuzzi , huge walk in shower, iPod speaker docking stations, which we used every day, the cleanliness throughout the hotel is absolutely
1st class, you can tell that the staff are proud to work there, and want for nothing more than to make you happy.
This is also an excellent location to explore, we hired a driver from outside the hotel who would whisk us away in a new luxury big black 4x4 vehicle, he would give us plenty of options of things to do, and the best days to do them.
Food at the hotel is truly amazing, so fresh and tasty! Also the presentation and hygiene could not be faulted. Other hotels could learn a lot from the culinary standards, set, at Panwa.


We were both so pleased that we chose this hotel, we had an absolutely fantastic time and experienced a level of service, care and attention to detail, Rarely present in the hotel industry.
