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.

My friends and I went to a hotel for two days to refresh ourselves during covid19-caused difficult time. And we were impressed since our first step by the hotel. Khun Pim, guest service, was so sweet to us and took us from the car park to our fancy room. The hotel was cleaned and trustable for covid19 prevention. Every staff always wore mask. They also have you reported your travel checked up your health at front desk. Inside the hotel, there are so many corners for you to get nice pictures. The nature here is quite abundant. Many trees and also lots of schools of fish you can see by your bare eyes in the see. They provide paddle boarding and kayaking and some sports activities. So we did have a good fun during our stay here. Read less
