A very last minute decision to share my daughters holiday after her friend bailed! What a fabulous place Cape Panwa resort and Phuket itself is.
I had no ambition to travel to Phuket seeing it as a party destination however...I'd now go back in a heartbeat.
I like to arrange airport transfers from home as it's no fun after a long flight to wait in the heat and spend 2 hours on a crowded bus, good decision and cheap as chips.
We arrived at Cape Panwa resort down the bottom of Phuket Island itself (which is well away from Phuket town and Patong which I think is a bonus) and I was so relieved to see a beautiful, stylish tiered resort built down a to a gorgeous beach.
With the humidity high we changed into our bathers immediately and walked past the amazing pool with a line of wooden lounge chairs down quite a few steps past luxury villas all amongst a green lush tropical garden and rolling lawn to a beach scene straight out of a movie.
Picture this, blue sky, green clear ocean.smooth lawn, lounges sprinkled under shady palm trees, white pure sand and a cocktail shack! Only 2 other guests in sight.
I'm in heaven and I've only been here 10 minutes:)
We had no reason to leave the resort, we did, gladly came back to relax again or walk 2 minutes up the steep hill to the loveliest new massage spa at a fraction of the hotel spa cost. (Still reasonable by OZ standards). Dinner was great, cocktails everyday were great, staff great, taxi drivers and tour guides all great. So last day, my daughter is nervous to share the bill as we'd been living it up, want to know what the hotel bill came too with room paid for already? aud $450! For 5 days!
Go back? In a heartbeat.
