good place to visit
Nice place and peaceful place to relax on weekend ,very good services mind. This hotel is nearby the sea so you can walk from hotel. They have activity such as canoe boat ,spa,and one day trip at coral island.
First impressions are of their beautiful reception area. The staff greet you warmly. Try and get a room facing the beach area. Try happy hour cocktails with a view of the coastline. The breakfast setting and food were excellent and we ate in the main restaraunt during our 3 might stay. The massaman curry was delicious and the local meals on the menu reasonably priced. We were not a fan of the local area but you probably would eat out if you stayed longer due to cost and variety. The beach area is very pleasant with plenty of shade and sunbeds. Restaraunt there served simple but tasty snacks for lunch. Would recommend if you want a quieter more relaxed Phuket.
We were so sad that our holiday was cut short due to COVID-19. The hotel was very luxurious and our room was very spacious with gorgeous views. The pool was excellent and had its own private beach. There was a choice of five different restaurants but sadly we only got to sample two of them due to hotel having to take extra precautions due to the virus. The staff were excellent. Reassured us constantly, checked our temperature every day and made sure that our holiday could continue without too much effect on us. Food was astounding. Staff were lovely and would love to return again one day to finish our holiday.
We arrived at this lovely hotel early and our room was not ready but the staff sent us for breakfast and made us comfortable until it was. The hotel is a little out of the way from the main parts of Phuket and due to the current international restrictions it wasn’t really advisable to leave the hotel. This being said the staff were absolutely brilliant. Our first room in the T block had the most stunning view from the balcony and the space was great for a 2 week stay. How ever if you have mobility problems then this side of the hotel isn’t good. I would ask for a room in the main building. Due to the hotel beginning to become quieter due to the pandemic we we moved about 10 days in to a room in the main building. It was supposed to be an upgraded room due to the inconvenience but I have to say I preferred the first room. The view was nice but not as good and the was a food smell constantly in the room because it was above one of the restaurants. Be warned the beds are hard but you can ask at reception and they will put a mattress topper on for you. Food wise we were on a full board basis. The give you meal vouchers for lunch and dinner which is a bit of pain because have to remember to take them with around the hotel. Breakfast there was a good selection and the food was very tasty. Lunch we ate a couple of times in Cafe Anderman but found the set menu to be too filling so the began to eat in the bamboo bar on the beach. All food is freshly cooked and very tasty. Most evenings we ate in Cafe Anderman. The set menus are great if you eat anything but not great if you’re vegetarian or don’t like red meat. However what they don’t tell you until you ask is the vouchers can be used against the al a carte menu. 400 thb at lunch and 800 thb at dinner. We never had a bad meal the food was excellent. Waiters -a special thank you to Jennifer and Natacha for there smiles and service. Facilities wise it would be unfair for me to comment too much as were were unable to use some of the hotel due to the government advice to close the spa,gym and pool whilst we were there. The beach though is well maintained and although rubbish does was up it is cleaned away most days and it’s not huge amounts. They tram that take up and down to the beach is great service as it would you be having good work out each to get back up especially when the the weather has Hugh temperatures. Be prepared though people do get up early to try and get the best spots and then you don’t see them on the beds for hours. The sea can get a bit rough and isn’t the best for snorkelling if that’s what you want to do. There are trips available if this it what you want to do. There are also jelly fish which you just need to watch out for. If we did have any issues whilst we were there then the were sorted very quickly and with good grace. Simon the Manger was also very visible in the hotel and put the guests first. Thank you. If your looking to chill out for a couple of weeks then this hotel is perfect to do that. Only one draw back was the amount of steps everywhere.
One week in paradise
Cape Panwa hotel was the last leg of our Thailand trip. We arrived by taxi and was greeted by reception with a cold drink and a warm welcome. We were swiftly shown to our rooms and then went to lunch. We booked through TUI on Full board basis, this was with a voucher system where you could go to any of the restaurants but if you went off the set menu you had to pay extra. We found the food fantastic, although were not keen of the Italian restaurant in the sister hotel. The top of the Reef was our favourite but eating in the Panwa house was a unique experience especially as we had a dining room to ourselves. Our bedroom was spacious, very clean and had a sea view albeit through the trees. Everywhere was spotless, the staff were very friendly and polite. There were trips available from a desk by the side in reception but because of the Coronavirus we didn’t go on any of them. We used the shuttle bus but there wasn’t much going on in the town. But there was a seven eleven. There is a funicular railway that took you to the beach where there were plenty of sun beds and umbrellas, theres an infinity pool and the Bamboo beach bar which served good snacks and lunches and the staff were great. If you like swimming in the sea you can only swim in high tide so this might not be the beach for you, but that wouldn’t put me off returning to this wonderful hotel. If you love great weather, lovely beaches, friendly people, great food, wonderful service with a smile go to Thailand and consider Cape Panwa hotel. We are hoping to go back.
