We have not long returned from our second stay at Cape Panwa. We had spent the previous 3 weeks seeing other parts of Thailand with a reasonably full on itinerary and had decided a relaxing time on the beach at Panwa would be a perfect finish to our holiday. I admit to wondering if my wonderful memories of our stay the year before were exaggerated as that had been our first holiday in an extremely long time. But no it was just as we remembered. Friendly staff, nothing is too much trouble, spotless rooms, beautiful gardens, a peaceful private beach and great food. This hotel has an ambience that is hard to describe but I am sure it is why it has so many returning guests.
We spent our stay mainly lying on the beach with a few day tours thrown in. Everything we needed was close by…other restaurants, massages, small supermarket and an atm. The hotel provides mini vans to Patong and Phuket Town for a reasonable price (in fact another couple paid exactly what the hotel charged to go into town after haggling with a local taxi driver).
Added fun extras were the shuttle bus that runs over the hill to the village regularly, the tram to the beach, happy hours, the resident monkey who I finally met this year as he was having his breakfast at the beach cafe and watching an amazing variety of ships pass by including a huge cruise ship that actually did a U turn in front of us so it could reverse into the pier around the corner (it was totally silent, I didn’t realise it was even there until I saw people taking photos!) I must also add a trip to the Cape Spa is a must, atmosphere and care brilliant. I also had one of the best haircuts ever there, the hairdresser was so excited when I told her to cut my hair short.
So if you want total relaxation in a beautiful setting with caring staff I highly recommend Cape Panwa.
