The "By The Sea" hotel at Cape Panwa is right on the beach, its clean, quiet, with great views of the coastline and Islands, the Big Buddha is just visible in the far distance. The food is excellent and competitively priced, there are also a few nice beach restaurant/bars, within easy walking distance along the sandy shoreline. Scooters can be hired 2 minutes up the road for 300 Baht per 24hrs, a great way to get to know this laid back, exclusive peninsular of Phuket. The hotel offers the free use of bicycles and WiFi. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was clean, spacious and well equipped. Six bottles of water per day were provided free of charge, along with fresh bath, beach and pool towels. There are free laundry facilities, including the powder/softener and a tumble drier. There's a well kitted-out gym and a nice big iMac with free internet access. All in all a lovely, classy hotel... you could turn up with a change of clothes, some spending money and need for nothing else! During our stay, we were offered a couple of nights at sister hotels on the west coast of Phuket... in Patong and Karon. We decided on Patong and were transferred free of charge the following day. We had left our main luggage with reception and packed enough for a couple of days. However, we also spent a night at the other hotel in Karon, which was were we stayed for the remainder of our holiday and our main luggage was brought over the following day. I have left reviews of these hotels, the "Seaview" in Patong and the "Andaman Seaview" in Karon, both were excellent, as was the service and treatment received during our stay at all three hotels.

Room Tip: Fantastic sea views from rooms with a balcony

Wonderful views, rooms are quite large and beds are comfortable. Love this place!
Staff being very nice and helpful, respond to my request for filnding sth promptly when I've left. Thanks again!
Like the boat a lot, we ride it to the other island. good swimming pools for little children.
Air conditioners a little bit noizy. Life jacket for children are not available, but could be bought by taking their shuttle to the phuket town.

Room Tip: higher floors have better view, but cost your energy for older people and young children.

Very good and quiet hotel. Good views, nice and clear beach. The staff is nice, rooms are clean and the hotel worth its money.

2 small cons:
- the hotel is located a bit far from even small shops (however you can use a free service to Big C or Central Festival Malls) or markets.
- not a lot of sunbeds at beach or pool for all people who want to use them.

We have lived in Bangkok for 11 years and this hotel represents the worst value for money we have experienced in Thailand. The man on reception and staff in the restaurant were very miserable (maybe suffering from the NY celebrations). The maids were lovely though. The hotel is right on the beach and early morning the trees offer shade for the sun beds but by early afternoon they are in direct sun. When we asked for an umbrella we were eventually told they didn't have any, despite photos on the website clearly showing them.

Our room had a lounge which was very dark and dismal and certainly not anywhere you would sit and relax. The room was very clean and the views are amazing.

It is very remote which we didn't mind because we hired a bike to around. They say they offer a complimentary bus to Phuket Town but it is actually to Central Mall so we had to then pay for a taxi to Phuket Town.

None of these are major issues its is just that we had come from spending New Years Eve in KL where for the same price per night we had a suite on the club floor at Le Meridian and there was absolutely no comparison.

Incredibly helpful people and a wonderful view over the Chalong bay. It seems like southern and quietest part of Phuket, but let's have a look at this in 10 years times... A worthwile destination, definitely!

Room Tip: Never been in so huge rooms in my life !
