“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Paradise, location is great, peaceful and beautiful, there was only a few people there, the staff is so helpful and kind, the service overall is great, we booked a superior room for 3 nights and a pool villa for one night, the superior room was wonderful with a balcony overlooking the sea and the pool area, great view! Room was very clean and well equipped, mosquito net and everything. The pool villa was a little disappointing, it was a bit old and untidy, the pool was great though, and the view.. !!
The hotel area is beautiful, the garden and the pool area very neat and pretty, the beach has very nice fine white sand and small waves, good for swimming. They rent canoes from the beach, recommended!
Breakfast was good, if not excellent, they have an omelette station, fresh fruit, crispy bacon etc. The stone beach restaurant was good, a little pricey compared to the restaurants in the village nearby but good, very romantic in the evenings. In the village nearby they have a few great places to eat, for example best burgers I've ever tasted, great thai food etc.
All in all, best hotel I've ever stayed in, I'm definitely going back.

Okay, I like Asia, and Thailand in particular so am a little biased. The location for the hotel was amazing, based on the north east section of the island which is pretty quiet (bliss) transfer was arranged from koh samui airport by the hotel by speedboat for about £25 each (worth it after a long flight) and took about 40 mins.
Room was fine - well proportioned, good air con, huge bed and, clean etc etc, nice balcony area overlooking the pool and gardens. View was amazing!!!

Staff were perfectly friendly.

Food in the pool bar was quite western, but that's not the end of the world and the 2 or 3 times we ate there we found it to be fine.

Ate in the stone beach restaurant on the 1st night, more of a Thai bias and was perfectly fine (although more expensive than in the village as you would expect).

Beach, sea water and sand quality were excellent.

Little village a 5 min stroll along the beach with good bars and places for cheap eats, plenty of ATM's and places to get beers/water/souvenirs etc.

If there is a place closer to paradise i'd love to see it....

on the way back speedboat runs to the airport at 10.30 and 1pm which wasn't much use for our 9.45 flight, the hotel organised an over land then catamaran transfer for about £16 each which was a good way to see the interior of the island.

Room Tip: we stayed in 305 and it was fine.

Panviman Resort is just incredible hotel. It´s located on a quiet beautiful beach. There´s lots of stairs and it´s situated on a steep, high slope. You can get a TukTuk to pick you up to your room/from your room any time. The resort area is very beautiful and green. Our room was Superior room and it was just perfect. Very big, big comfy bed, large bathroom with a bathtub for two and a separate shower. We had a big terrace facing to the sea. It was just a pity that it was raining most of the time we stayed there. So we could´t enjoy the amazing pool area and our beautiful terrace that much. This place is really a piece of heaven. Wanna return someday.

The hotel itself is really beautiful & located on the side of the mountain (i.e. a lot of stairs, but worth it). It's on a really nice stretch of beach tucked away in the corner. The village is not touristy, so there are a lot of very local places to eat & shop. The hotel is far away from the action (i.e. high taxi fares & a bit longer travel time to get to the hotel - 40 min from ports & Full Moon Party). The hotel only mentioned the speedboat transfer from Koh Samui to the hotel (1,500 baht pp or $100 for 2p), which we felt was too expensive! They failed to mention the cheaper option of their 2x/day shuttle...so was a bit disappointed that was not mentioned so we spent too much on the way to the resort, but were able to take the shuttle option back to Koh Samui, which was about a third of the price (600 baht per person). The hotel staff was extremely nice and accommodating. Additionally, the free delicious breakfast was served in an amazing circular restaurant overlooking the sea. My only comment on the hotel was I would have expected using their kayak to be free (seemed to be that way with the neighboring hotel, but we had to pay 200 baht for 1 hour). All in all though it was a beautiful location. We had the private pool villa, which made it an extra special romantic getaway. I would recommend this hotel, but just be prepared that you are located further away from the main part of the island (which is great if you are looking for a more quiet stay on the island!).

Room Tip: The private pool villas are really awesome!! We had room 111, which seemed to be in the perfect loca...

We stayed only two nights but should have been more! It's such a beautiful peaceful,place to be. We upgraded to the private pool villa (room 106), wow! I actually shed a tear when we were shown it as so beautiful!
The service was amazing, the breakfast restaurant truly spectacular!
We ate at the stones restaurant belonging to the hotel on the first night- not huge dishes but very good, and the live music- so cute ; )
We were picked up by minivan and taken to the pier, for the boat trip over (all included) and then again on return taken to our next resort. Also a nice touch was an email sent to where we were first staying reminding us of pick up time and looking forward to meeting us.
Highly recommend as so magical and private no matter what room you have.
The only downer was that the air con was super noisy and sometimes switched off so we woke up sweating ; )

Room Tip: Defo upgrade if you can to private deluxe pool room (105-108) great views and not too far to walk d...
