We went to kantary bay hotel last nov for eight weeks the first visit to Thailand for myself and husband, and stayed over the Xmas and new year .and what a fab time we both had,the hotel staff are second to none every one was so welcoming from the moment we arrived to the day we left we could not find fault with any of them,we oley stayed in a studio room but it was very big with all we needed.and I don't settle for any old thing .it wasn't designer but it was very pleasant and every thing you needed was at hand.I can't give enough praise to hotel manager mr boonson he was the most helpful hotel manager I've ever met and believe me I'm well travelled. And the girls on reception are a joy to chat to,in fact we enjoyed it so much we are returning for eight weeks again in dec & Jan..we caught the local bus every other day into town 40bart then hopped onto a different beach bus 20 Bart and had a stroll around another resort but we choose the best resort as our base. So if your planning to visit Thailand don't hesitate to stay in the kantary bay hotel

Room Tip: High floor are convenient for the the roof pool where it has a great breeze

Just returned from an 11 night stay at the Kantary Bay Hotel. All the staff were great and always very helpful. While the hotel is in quite a secluded location a shuttle bus service runs to local towns for reasonable prices if you want to escape the quietness for a while.

The beach at Cape Panwa is excellent and a great facility to be able to use.

I would highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a beautiful and secluded part of Thailand!

Many thanks to Kantary Bay

Have stayed here 11 times so far, need I say more! This is what I call my home from home. The staff are just brilliant and can not do enough for you. Taxi drivers outside are a pain but use hotel transport to overcome this. The facilities at Cape Panwa are good and beach is great. I find the location is ideal, well away from the noise and hassle of Patong beach, yet close enough to Phuket town for the odd visit.

The property right on the beach was wonderful.The private beach attached to the resort was a bonus .Service and breakfast was great.We found an indian restaurant serving north indian food very near the resort which added to our comfort.

Room Tip: on the upper floors as all the rooms face the sea.

Just back after staying at the Kantary Bay for 3 nights. This was the second part of our holiday and can honestly say we loved it. Staff were so nice and very helpful. The girls at reception were always smiling and couldn't do enough for us. As it was our anniversary they gave us a room with a sea view and a lovely cake was waiting for us on arrival.
Although the hotel is a little bit dated, for the price you pay you should be overlooking this. You have the use of its sister hotel Cape Panwa which has a beautiful beach and entertainment on every night at the Lighthouse Bar.
We would not hesitate to stay here again and would recommend it to anyone if your looking to stay in a quiet area of Phukett but still able to access other parts of the Island if you want to.
Big Thank you to all the staff for making our short stay here so enjoyable. Hope to return again.

Room Tip: Email the hotel before you travel and request a sea view if possible.

We had a fantastic 8 days at Kantary Bay. A family of six, we were given a really spacious apartment which easily put up our 3 teenage boys and young one. Breakfast was a highlight for our boys who enjoyed the wide choice at the buffet on offer.

Kantary Bay has a sister hotel over the hill at Cape Panwa, where we were able to go to use the beach (all day shuttle bus provided), went on a trip to Coral Island (snorkling, parasailing - cool) ... and here's an example of the 'extra mile' - because the main pool at Cape Panwa hotel was being renovated, we were given a sumptuous barbecue meal each evening at Cape Panwa house - beautiful salads, and desserts, and a variety of barbecued meats including fish steaks, chicken kebabs, beef, lamb ... sprite, coke and very warm thoughtful service for our family. We often ate with another family, and the staff worked out we were having trouble getting seats together, so spontaneously they arranged tables joined together, enough for our group, and kept free for us the next day (and the duration of our stay).

Staff at reception (and in the restaurants) were always helpful with a big smile.

Highly recommended without reservation.

Room Tip: For families there are a few options worth asking about - some up high, some right on the pool - dep...
