This hotel's superb location makes it one of the most popular in Phuket.
Surrounded by tropical vegetation on a steep hillside above a long stretch of sand in Phuket, it comes as no surprise that the Cape Panwa Hotel is a long-standing favourite with Kuoni guests. It’s great for those that want more from their holiday than just relaxing on the sand and listening to the gentle sound of the sea, with plenty of activities on offer to fill up your days. Here, you’ll find two pools and a range of watersports for those that like to keep cool by the water. Retreat to the Cape Spa and allow yourself to be pampered in the peaceful surrounds. If you’re more of an explorer, cruise to nearby Coral Island and experience new landscapes in this idyllic part of Phuket.
Dining options here are plentiful. There’s Café Andaman, the main open-air restaurant, Panwa House, serving up authentic Thai delicacies, and Top of the Reef for those seeking a more elegant dining experience. Uncle Nan’s has a delicious Italian menu to choose from, while Laem Panwa’s features delicious fresh seafood every day. For the ultimate dining experience, opt for a candlelit dinner under the stars on the beach. You’ll also find a number of bars here, including the new bamboo bar where you can enjoy a cocktail or two.
Rooms have a full or partial sea view and Superior Rooms are simple yet comfortable. For a little more space, opt for a Junior Suite or a larger Family Suite complete with two bedrooms and an outdoor Jacuzzi on the balcony. The indulgent Private Pool Villas are close to the beach and have their own pool, while the charming Cape Suites feature an outdoor whirlpool.
