“Very satisfied”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

Our Family of 4 persons shared 2 double rooms. The rooms were beautiful. The staff was excellent and the Resort itself
makes me feel like paradise!! The breakfast was in a beautiful Restaurant with a great view and a good choice of Food.The beach was nice and clean. The Stone beach Restaurant also was a very good choice to eat dinner there. Overall it was the greatest Hotel trough our tour to koh phangan and koh samui for 14 days. I would recommend this place.

We were very happy with our decision of choosing PANVIMAN RESORT. The service and friendliness of the people who are working at Panviman was excellent. The price for the hotel is also a big advantage. The hotel itself as well as the rooms are in good condition. The food in the hotel was also very good.
The only little disadvantage was the lot of stairs you have to walk between the pool and the beach as well between the pool and the rooms. I think this hotel is not adequat for old or invalid people.

The fitness center is also very small but suitable. What is also not so good is the sound level in the rooms. You can hear everything what happens in the other rooms or outside the room.

Dear Malanie P,

Firstly, let me thank you for the time spent on writing this review, we really appreciated it. We were extremely pleased to hear that our service and friendliness of our staff were excellent. Furthermore, we were delighted to hear that we are value-for-money, and our accommodation was in good condition. On top of that, our chef were really happy to hear that they made great cuisine!

We regret to hear that there are too many steps between the rooms and the main pool; however, we do provide buggy free-shuttle that can bring you anywhere within the resort grounds.

Please be ensured that we intend to maintain our services and natural surroundings to top-level. We would do anything make our customers' stay a wonderful and memorable one.

We hope that you will be returning to our resort, and we really hope to provide you with the best service on your next visit!

We got the speed boat from Koh Samui (worth paying a little bit extra for - we were at the resort within 90 minutes of arriving in Koh Samui). We were upgraded to the pool villa which was amazing - a very large pool and great sized room. The service was great and the breakfast area had nice views. The beach was lovely and we ate in the village for lunch and dinner which was only a few minutes walk from the hotel.
Would definitely stay there again.

We arrived at the resort by their speedboat but when we went to check in they said our room would be available in 30 minutes and were told to go and walk around. We came back 45 minutes later and we were told to come back again in another HOUR AND A HALF!!!! We were very unimpressed with this and no kind of compensation was offered. There was nothing for us to do really as we didn't want to open our suitcases in front of everyone to get our beach gear, so we had to walk back in to town and back again. Finally we were allowed to check in to our room TWO HOURS after arriving and it was nice. View was obstructed by Palm trees in front of our balcony. Food at the restaurant was great and breakfast wasn't too bad either.

The only thing we didn't like was check in. If you can't check guests in when they arrive by the resort speed boat then don't allow them to transfer to the resort early. We had no air conditioning and it was super hot and humid. Otherwise our stay was great

Dear Kat F,

Firstly, let me thank you for the time spent on writing this review, we really appreciated it. We were glad that you liked our resort overall, apart from the check-in process.

As for the check-in process, we really regret to hear that you had waited a total of two-hours before being allowed to check-in. Please be ensured that this does not really happen, and if it does next time please speak to me as I will be more than happy to give some compensation for this matter.

Please be ensured that we intend to maintain our services and natural surroundings to top-level. We would do anything make our customers' stay a wonderful and memorable one.

We really hope you will be returning in the near future, and we really hope to provide you with the best service on your next visit!

We got married here on the 17th April 2014 and have to say this is the most perfect location. The whole resort is fantastic. The rooms are beautiful with stunning views, the infinity pool is to die for, the breakfast room has incredible views. We simply cannot fault it. In September we stayed on the same beach, (best beach in Khophangan or Samui for that matter), but in a different hotel and whilst there we took the opportunity to have a look around the resort as well as some on Ko Samui but settled on the Panviman as the small part of the beach that the Panviman sits on offered what we thought to be the most private and romantic setting. We were not disappointed in any way. We have stayed in Thailand several times in both cheap and higher end accommodation and I have to say this is the best value for money we have had. If you are looking for peace, tranquility, incredible beach and pool, attentive staff, beautiful views, nice food, great spa then this is the place for you. However if you want noise, parties, late nights, satellite TV then its not for you. The small village behind Thong Nai Pan beach is great with a good selection of eateries. Overall I would rate this a 10/10 in every aspect. Im not just saying this because we got married here, i genuinely mean it. The staff were excellent and very friendly. Nothing seemed to much trouble. There is so much stress surrounding weddings making sure everything is right for you but we need not have worried as the day went very well. We had no guests, just the two of us. The only thing we would have done different is perhaps had the wedding ceremony an hour earlier than the planned 5pm as after exchanging vows, the photographer took over and we didnt have much time to soak up what just happened before we were having our dinner for two on the beach but this was a minor change we would have made. The dinner for two on the beach was amazing, only wish we could have made this last longer but we had our very own outside spa waiting for us in the presidents suite. I have sent a personal email to the resort listing the names of all the staff who helped make our holiday/wedding one to remember as there are too many to name on here. Feel free to contact me on john_b_chapman@hotmail.com if you would like any advice on getting married here.

Beautiful spot, great service from staff but most uncomfortable beds and pillows we have ever experienced anywhere!!!! Time for an update of this hotel I think, rooms comfortable but a little dated. Great spot for relaxing but not much happens on Koh Phangan- very quiet and limited dining options.
