“amazing service beautiful room!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014

we arrived this morning in Koh Phanghan for our 1 day/night at this resort. Our primary purpose was to stay for the full moon party and as an end for our honeymoon. We have stayed at hotels in bangkok, chiang mai, phuket, koh tao and this by far was the most impressive. We were so happy to see Paniviman at the pier when we arrived from Koh Tao - as we werent even expecting them there we were put into a great air conditioed SUV with a cold bottle of water and cold towel and whisked away to the hotel (800 baht) which was great as the hotel is 45 mins away from the pier. when we arrived at the hotel we were treated like royalty.... service was soo impeccable. we were given a refreshment/welcome drink and cold towel and informed about our 1 day stay. we were also upgraded from a deluxe cottage to a pool villa which was so unexpected but so very kind especially given it was our honeymoon trip. We were loaded into a tuk-tuk with our luggage and personally taken to our room which overlooked the beach and was so ornate and clean and just stunning. The pool was amazing. it wasnt just a small little pool, we were able to play and swim in it!! the bar was fully stocked with great variety including snacks and drinks which were reasonably priced. after an hour of swimming we got hungry and ordered room service which although took a little longer than 30 mins (1 hour) it was totally worh the wait. the spring rolls, calamari and burger were fantastic!! the amneties including the tub/ rainfall shower and ipod dock are so apreciated. the tv is awesome. were on our way to dinner shortly and a taxi will be taking us to the full moon party tonight and back. we are very pleased with the resort and will definately be back. we both wish we could stay longer!!!

You will not be dissapointed at all!!

Room Tip: pool villa is insane! loved room 108!!

My girlfriend and I recently visited Thailand. After weeks of looking at just about every hotel in Koh Phangan and Koh Samui, we decided to stay at Panviman for the first 5 nights (19 - 24 December). We were certainly not disappointed. Our airport shuttle was at the airport waiting for us, and proceeded to get us to the ferry and from the ferry to the hotel effortlessly. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the reception staff and were made to feel like royalty. After the check in process, we were taken to our room, and everything was explained to us by a lovely receptionist.

The room was impeccable. Clean, well maintained and fully stocked. The bathroom was excellent, and everything worked as it should.

The breakfast choices were brilliant, and the food was excellent. The view was absolutely amazing, and the staff were exceptional.

The pool was clean, and the bar staff were attentive and fast with our orders. There always enough loungers and towels.

Tuk-tuks are always available at reception to take guests down to the entrance, where the little village full of restaurants, pubs and shops begins.

The only disappointments were the fitness centre, which isn't really a fitness centre, but a few basic 'machines' outside, and the fact that getting to Haad Rin, or Haad Salad, is quite a journey. Having said that, if you want a nice, relaxing holiday far away from the madness that is Haad Rin and the Full Moon craziness, this place is for you.

Overall I have to say this hotel was by far the best of the 5 we stayed in while in Thailand, and I would certainly stay here again.

Photos to follow shortly.

Dear IIan V,

Firstly, let me thank you for the time spent on writing this review, we really appreciated it. We are extremely happy to hear that the transportation to and from the hotel worked out really well for you, and that you really liked your room and pleased by its hygiene. Furthermore, we are really glad that you thought that our breakfast selections were brilliant, amazing pool, and our staff very attentive.

location: this is a beautiful located hotel between two very nice beaches of koh phangan. the small village has a lot of good restaurants, bars, massage places & laundry service.
room: we had a deluxe cottage with a wonderful view over the sea, the beautiful big stones, a bay and the lush vegetation. on the outside terrace we had an outdoor bathtub. room 6104 was just perfect. beside the view it is also very big, with a comfortable bed etc.
staff: all the staff in this hotel is extremly friendly, there is a nice atmosphere.
hotel: the pool area is amazing and truly special. the small part of the beach with the sunbeds from the hotel is one of the best because there you have the full view on the whole bay and you have the scenery of the rocks just right beside you!
breakfast is yummy.
the bbq at the beach has a nice salad buffet & the singer has a great voice :)
generally the prices for f&b are pretty good and include the tax, there is no service charge as well what we appreciated a lot.
the downsides:
-i wouldnt recommend it to families with toddlers 1-3y too much walking up & down and our terrace wasnt save from falling (maybe others are). an alternative would be a villa with pool (which is closer to everything) but then you have the dangerous pool (for kids). also the kidsclub is not a help because there are too many moskitos after 5pm, there is no indoor part and not a lot of toys. babysitting is quite expensive, 300thb for one hour for one child, 600 thb for 2 kids.
-the food, well in particular the menu itself in the pool-restaurant is not what one would expect in a nice hotel located in pure nature. there is pizza, pasta, burger etc. some nice light food with organic ingredients would be much better.
-the grounds need a bit more maintenance like picking up leaves from paths & out of the pool, hide some pipes, hide cleaning utilities...
-> go there as a couple or with a baby or child which is old enough and safe regarding assessing risks, its definitively a very good choice on koh phangan if you dont go there for party!

We really appreciate your comments on the organic food, and will definitely work on that and come up with some more choices, and also the same with the hiding the pipes, cleaning facilities, we will definitely work on those.

The hotel is on the northern side of the island getting away from the "full moon party crowd"
you are most probably likely to get a room overlloking the bay with the morning view to be enough to make up the price you pay
Despite the multiple mistakes done by our booking web site the staff was able to adjust everything and accomodate us and give us a free massage voucher even if the problem was not caused by them. Staff is a plus to the structure which is the best we have seen among the islands (we have visited 5 islands in total)
the beach restaurant gives you plenty of options and a very nice evening atmospere with prices alligned to the majority of the restaurants you would find out (no street food restaurant of course)
I would recommend it if you are a couple looking to spend some quality time and spoil yourself

What a beautiful resort! Highly recommended. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. There was a mix-up about the transport to the hotel and the hotel management compensated for this which was highly appreciated. From the port it is about a 30 min drive to the hotel on a road that is currently under construction, but traveling through the rural areas of the island was quite an adventure. My room overlooked the garden and had an obstructed view of the ocean, but it was was nevertheless an magnificent view. Western types of food was available at the restaurant at the pool, whereas traditional Thai cuisine was available at the restaurant at the beach. There were bikes to hire, and one can book boat trips which includes snorkeling and kayaking - all reasonably priced. The private beach is beautiful, and it is difficult to decide whether to spend the day on the beach or at the pool area which overlooks the sea. It is well worth visiting the spa - the massage I received was of excellent standard in a room overlooking the sea. The nearby village is small and charming (there is a pharmacy as well) - nice to stroll through. Bring mosquito repellant! All in all, very good value for money, friendly staff, and a good variety of food - reasonably priced.

The resort was beautiful, although in need of some refurbishment, but the attitude of the staff was patchy. I had booked for myself for a room during the Christmas NY period many months in advance. When my mother asked to join me, I was told there were no more rooms and the resort was full - it wasn't. When we arrived we were offered a second room next door with a massive discount. Why was I penalised for my original advance booking? The food was not great. When my mother complained about uncooked pasta, the staff shrugged their shoulders. The place is nice but the attitude is not so good.
