The area seems to have been excluded from the "full on" Thailand beach resort effect...so ineffect, what we experienced was a nice, tranquil and easy going small town modestly developed.. The resort is blissful and luxurious.
The Loft apartments are very nice and pampering. Defiantly, worth considering if you want to treat yourself or taking the children. The website pictures don't do justice to the 2 resort pools, both big and spacious.
The views are scenic and beach is quiet and shallow watered.
Thai hospitality is delivered faultlessly with smiles and warmth. Special thanks to Aum ? And GM Antje, who was also very pro-active and knowledgable.
Points to consider-
Food - Expensive for Quality -see TA for alternatives
Taxi - Bargain HARD...your still paying too much.!
Loft room curtains..have tendency to open/close unexpectedly ! (being addressed)
Non-motorised water activities should be complementary.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A hideaway in Phuket, yet just a stone’s throw from Phuket Town and a short drive to Patong, Crowne Plaza Phuket Panwa Beach is exclusively set in Makham Bay. This beautiful Phuket resort draws design inspiration from the rich heritage of the area with its marbled floors, rich woods and flowing water throughout the public areas and guest rooms, offset by contemporary art, light and space. The resort boasts two beachfront pools serviced by bars and restaurants. A third beachfront pool is semi-private for those who choose to stay in our Panwa Duplex Lagoon, some of the finest Phuket accommodations. Our lobby bar is elevated over Makham Bay to take full advantage of the wooded headlands, jagged cliffs and nearby islands. Suites feature baths by the bay window and all guest rooms have a separate bath from shower. All rooms have private, furnished balconies and free Wi-Fi connectivity that is easy to access throughout the resort. Our chefs are masters of traditional Royal Thai cuisine. We also have an Italian Patio set on the beach to take advantage of the Phuket weather and romantic twilight. Our activities manager can organise everything from evening beach campfires, kayaking trips to nearby islands or cooking classes. A tour desk is available so you can explore the island and surrounding waters. We also feature a signature spa for the ultimate in relaxation, Panwa spa. A supervised kids club, gym and cafe complete this fine beach resort. ... more less
