I've stayed in the Panwa Boutique Beach Resort for 10 nights during my honeymoon in November, 2016.
The view from the room was breathtaking (see photo) when I woke up after the first night. The pool area and the bar there were amazing, and the drinks' prices were relatively fair. The beach area is beautiful and clean. Their food is good, but a little expensive, especially when you can have the same meals with much cheaper prices only 20 meters away from the hotel.
The staff there were friendly and always trying to help, although some of them should be able to have basic English language skills to be able to communicate with guests.
I'd highly recommend this hotel, specially for couples looking for serenity and quiet time, and I know I will go back there during my next visit to Phucket; Panwa beach is calmer and more beautiful than the famous Patong beach.
I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 for two reasons; I think it should at least have an ATM machine, although later on I found out that you only needed a 10 minutes walk to the closest ATM machine. Also, it was really annoying to have to get back to reception area to ask them to re-activate my room key in my last two nights, they should do something about their room key system to avoid such an inconvenience.
While you're there, you have to walk for two minutes in the beach area to check the close-by bar and massage place, you can thank me later ;-)

Quiet and very nice place. One minus: between 13 and 17 o,clock the Beach isn't so nice - too many Stones and you can see the pipes laying on the sand. Very big plus: excelent and cheap restaurant on the Beach near the hotel.

We stayed at Panwa in December peak period. Our first time to Thailand. The hotel is somewhat luxurious and offers a lot for the price that you pay

Pros
- this side of panwa is very pretty
- there is a small beach in front of the hotel.
- 2/3 bars outside of the hotel on the beach for great local food and sundowners
- hotel can rent you scooters (very convenient)
- nice pool that overlooks the small harbor/beach
- breakfast offers western and Thai options
- rooms are big, luxurious and comfortable
- rooms are air conditioned
- nice bathroom
- great front desk that can assist you
- free wifi
- clean rooms and hotel
- happy hour cocktails

Cons
- items such as food, drinks and mini bar that are not included in the offer are a little higher priced than general things in Thailand, but not over priced
- not all rooms have a nice view. So when booking, if this is important to you, make sure to request it
- pool is small and can feel a little squashed if the hotel is full

Overall, the boutique hotel is very comfortable and clean. They offer this lovely romantic dinner on the Beach. Compared to some of the accommodation I have seen in Thailand. I would say this hotel is definitely above average

We are a family of 4 and have found this hotel an absolute delight.

Very comfy rooms, wonderfully attentive staff, a great breakfast and a beach from paradise. There are a couple of small beach restaurants nearby offering very reasonably priced delicious fare. Free wifi throughout is a boon. All in all a strong recommendation for a relaxing family break.
