The hotel is located on the south tip of Phuket (Panwa Bay)
It is not directly on the beach as the advertising and hotel website suggested. The facility you see in the pictures on the beach is the Cape Panwa Resort which belongs to the same hotel chain,bot double the price. But the hotel has a shuttle organised so going to the beach is not so difficult (just takes 5-10 minutes)
The beach at the Cape Panwa Resort is nice and quiet but watch out for the right time to go swimming. High tide - perfect condition. Low tide - not so good as many stones. Then the beach tends to be dirty.
There is a very nice playground for children there as well.
The remote location makes any trip to Pangna Bay a long journey. We went on a one day trip (organised) with our 2.5 years old daughter and spend 2.5 hours in the car to get to Pangna Bay (because the bus had to pick up other people from Patong Beach) and again 2.5 hours in the car on the way back again, because the bus went to our location at last. So, if you plan a trip to Pangna Bay, either book a tour which starts from Phuket Pier or do a private tour. Otherwise you spend more time in the car then actually on the boat.
All in all, a very nice stay for people who just want a quiet and relaxing place. Great for children, if you don't plan to do sightseeing.
