Cape Panwa Hotel

Phuket, Thailand

The hotel

Nothing less than idyllic, Cape Panwa offers a quiet retreat in the southeast corner of this popular island. Excellent service, stylish rooms and world-class amenities can all be enjoyed as well as a secluded beach for hotel guests only. All suites and villas boast plenty of space and light with airy décor. There’s a variety to choose from, ideal for couples, families or groups of friends. Activities at the Cape Panwa abound – although if you want to do nothing more than laze by one of the 2 pools, that’s absolutely fine! For moments when you’re feeling more active, there are water sports galore, including canoes and stand-up paddle boards. As well as sporting activities, there are cultural activities and a spa in which to feel truly pampered. Children are welcomed with open arms and there’s plenty for them to do too, allowing parents time out to soak up the sun. Dining is plentiful at the Panwa, there are several superb restaurants, serving dishes from around the globe. There are also four bars to unwind in at the end of the day, sipping on a handcrafted cocktail perhaps whilst listening to a live band at The Light House or the swell of the sea at Bamboo Bar.

We stayed in the corner suite. Wonderful views and sunrises. Great environment, always friendly staff. Upon arrival, you immediately feel recognized as a returning guest. Always well maintained and very quiet beach

I have stayed in loads of hotels all over the world but this was one of the best it has everything you can want and with the covid 19 it was not to busy and they have taken the prices way down and theThais are getting great deals.

We stayed at hotel cape panwa on our second day. Staffs are nice and very helpful. The room we got was on the 1st floor. It was clean and big, but the view wasn’t so good. We didn’t get to see anything as there are many trees up front. If you like just laying on the beach and chill, this is definitely a place for you. The pace of the place was very peaceful. There’s private beach in side the hotel with bamboo beach bar and the colonial house, which is known as one very of the very famous restaurant in Phuket. Too bad it was closed during our visit because of the pandemic, so we didn’t get to try. If you wanna go down to panwa cape, there’s shuttle service available till about 11.00pm (can’t remember the time exactly, if you get to go there please recheck with the hotel). Overall, but the view from the room, was fantastic and hope to go back there soon. Read less
