“A pleasant hotel in a peaceful setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

This hotel is located at the opposite side of the island from the main ferry port. This makes it rather isolated but gives it a very peaceful feel. The staff are very helpful and everybody was very pleasant.

Breakfast is a buffet and there is a good choice of Thai and Western food. The view from the restaurant is spectacular: ocean, beach and sunshine ! There is a beach BBQ and a main restaurant. There is also a selection of restaurants / bars about 300m outside the entrance to the hotel. We ate most nights in this area and we were very happy with the food.

The room was clean and the TV and air conditioning worked. Room staff made some very interesting animals from towels and we found these beautiful and very much appreciated the effort. The WiFi connection in the room is poor. However, the signal strength was very good at reception and in the restaurant.

This is a good hotel to come for several days to relax and enjoy a peaceful atmosphere. We will come again but the mountain drive and distance from "full moon" parties may make it unsuitable for some people.

Room Tip: If you want good WiFi get a room near reception.

Room was okay, bathroom was okay sometimes dirty. Barely any wireless in the room. Restaurant was okay but food was average - expected in Thailand and breakfast was good for the cost. So far away from full moon party, very dangerous car ride to and from in the dark. Booked by a travel agent - had no idea.

There was a problem with the booking and we arrived a day too late. As the hotel was as good as empty, we made a deal with the reception that we could stay an extra night. However, someone else of the reception called us around 7 PM to say that we could not stay for the extra night... So they kicked us out !!!
Next to this, the hotel is badly located (almost no sun, the south or the west of the island is much better), the staff is very unfriendly and the cheeseburger was awful.
We were lucky we got a discount, but otherwise it is expensive for what it is...

Stayed October 2012, traveled with friends

I stayed in a deluxe cottage and it was the most incredible place I have ever visited. Luxurious room with full amenities, terrace overlooking the water and an incredible view from the spa tub. Buffet breakfast had everything you could ask for and the food was incredible. Very attentive staff and amazing food at the restaurant along the beach. Peaceful, not overcrowded, a true slice of heaven :)

Panviman was our first hotel in the trip and i must say its was also the best.
The hotel is located in a beautiful and relaxing bay beside little village with a lot of good restaurant. the room was comfortable and satisfying ( we took a DELUXE room) and the view was outstanding.The pool is gorgeous and overlook the see , there is a couple of a good restaurant at the hotel although the restaurant at the beach is very expansive.
At the hotel you will find free internet and WIFI but dont count on the wifi because it singal very weak.
TIP-there is a beautiful road (like a bridge above water) that surround the hotel .
I will definitly come back to panviman!

Room Tip: ask for Deluxe room near the poll/beach.

We loved this place. We spent 4 weeks on Ko Phangan, and after bouncing around for the first two, we settled here for the rest of our stay. It's definitely pricey, but we got a really good deal through a third-party site during low season.

It's beautifully set up, so even our cheaper room felt nice and private. It is spread out, and there are lots of hills and stairs to climb, so be prepared. But it's a nice wander, not an excruciating climb. There are multiple restaurants with decent food, but pricey. The pool is gorgeous and large, and overlooks the ocean. The room was spotlessly clean and beautifully appointed, and came with plenty of nice amenities, like coffee and tea, a balcony, a bathtub, good air conditioner, and a super comfy bed.

The front desk staff were very helpful with arranging tours and transportation, but not as helpful when our internet refused to work half the time. (Be aware, though, that this will happen at even the nicest places in this area.) There were a few staff members who went above and beyond; we especially loved the housekeepers, who folded our clean towels into fun animal shapes more than once.

I would definitely stay here again.
