“One word ... Paradise”
Reviewed June 22, 2011

My new bride and I just got married at Sri Panwa. This place is absolutely amazing. The scenery from every single venue (and we pretty much used them all) is fantastic. Their staff is very attentive and every one of their facilities is either brand spanking new, or kept to a condition that was perceived to be at the very highest of quality.

We stayed 5 days in all in the 5-bedroom villa, while around 30 of our guests were spread out amongst the pool suite, 1 bedroom, and 2 bedroom pool villas. The feedback from them was also consistently that Sri Panwa is simply amazing. Every villa feels extremely secluded and private (the feel we wanted) while the layout of the 5-bedroom villa allowed for all of our friends an family to gather seamlessly for socializing and catching up.

The staff are extremely attentive and plentiful. Rooms were cleaned up without any interference to our day as we hardly even noticed the staff. Even when 75 people stopped by to party at the 5 bedroom villa one night, the next day everything was cleaned up spotlessly, and nary a sign of the partying from the previous night was evident. And when we needed, either someone was standing by, or a quick phone call to "71" was all that was needed.

And although a good majority of the staff spoke good English, we did encounter every so often a staff member that did not quite understand our request. This often required a follow-up, but this is largely a communication gap, and if we spoke a little Thai, I'm sure this one area that could be improved when dealing with English-only guests would be a non-issue. With that said, Sri Panwa's staff was as attentive or more so than other high-end Thai hotels and resorts we've experienced (and we've stayed at 6 different ones and counting) and the communication issue exists as long as I continue to be lazy and not speak Thai! ;-).

Sri Panwa for both the couples get-away, as well as family and friend group trips, is truly paradise as long as your budget allows for only the best. Take a stab at staying here and you will not regret. Who knows, maybe we'll past each other anonymously by the main restaurant and pool when I go back for a future R&R trip...

This resort is right up there with the best of them with one huge, possible fata flaw - it's location. If this place was on a secluded beach somewhere it would be totally world class.

We stayed in both a sunset and sunrise villas. The sunrise villas (the newer ones) face a working port and there are multiple heavy industrial ships parked right in front of the villas completely spoiling the view. Also by lunch-time there was no more sun on the pool or for sunbaking. The sunset villas are at the edge of the property next to the Phuket Aquarium and local housing with a constant din of traffic, building noise etc.

The only other negative is that the beach is small and uninviting (we never saw anyone chilling on it) and the main pool was tiny and a bit of an after-thought.

Other than that everything about this place is awesome:
- huge multiroomed well appointed villas
- great villa pools wrapping around the bedroom (roll from bed into pool in the morning)
- excellent privacy
- plenty of indoor and outdoor chill areas in the villas
- superb food, breakfast lunch and dinner
- beautiful architecture/design thoughout
- great staff including butlers
- great spa with a killer yoga platform

If only the location was up to the otherwise very high standard...

Room Tip: Sunrise for quiet, sunset for sunbaking

First, we would like to thank you for your honesty and review.

We feel that we are located on the nicest cape in Phuket. We have ocean/island/sunrise or sunset views from all villas. Something you can not find at any other property on this island.

Due to our topography and the fact that we have villas on both the East and West sides, the sun can not be around all day. Yes, we neighbor the Aquarium, but this is the first time we have heard of them disturbing our guests. We can not control the waterways off of Phuket, so whatever yachts/ships decide to cruise in front of the property is out of our hands.

Our hotel is a pool villa property and we do not promote ourselves as a beach hotel. There are private islands just across the bay with very quiet beaches throughout the year.

We are glad that you enjoyed yourselves and hope we can welcome you back in the future.

Probably the best villa with a pool we have ever had. Everything is great from a five star perspective except for the asian bedding.

Being from Canada, we typically do not sleep on plywood. A hotel with this type of investment in paradise should probably spring for some foam pads to adjust to the client.

Other than that, the place is top notch. If you want your own piece of Thailand where clothes are not needed, stay here.

Room Tip: Pool Villa all the way.

Since we have traveled a lot and did visit great resorts in different parts of the world, we have been very curious to learn more about this relatively new location.
It was a great experience:
It is a very nice location with a top view. Beside of the natural chirring of the crickets it was very quiet.
Our small daughter did have a lot of fun, even there is no kids club. The staff is very nice to kids and will take care of team.

All in all a great stay!

Sri Panwa has a lot going for it and I would recommend this hotel without any hesitation. The two areas which stood out during our stay were the accommodations and the service. Of the places we have visited in Thailand Sri Panwa offers, without a doubt, the best service we have experienced. In addition, the suites/villas offer luxury as well as privacy on a world class scale.

We stayed for 5 nights (May 1-6) and had the opportunity to experience both the pool suite and the pool villa--via an upgrade (thanks Jared). The pool suites are located in the hotel's main building and most frequented common area. They are quite adequate for a couple--with a large bedroom area and bathroom (shower separate bath) tucked behind this area. Pool suites also offer a decent size infinity pool which overlooks Cape Panwa and are very private.

The Pool Villas are on a completely different scale and it would be difficult to imagine another stay there not booking the villa. In addition to a decent size bedroom these villas offer a walk-in closet attached to a bathroom with separate basins and a shower. The covered outside patio has a bath and additional shower with a separate seating area and entry into an infinity pool which is three times the size of the pool suite. It also has a living room with an extremely large couch (which I presume doubles as a bed), LCD, IPOD and quality speaker system (which runs throughout the villa). The views were incredible.

The facilities are 5 star as well. The gym is adequate for any fitness buff on a 5 day stay. Decent cardio machines, selection of free weights, and good space to workout. There is also a tennis court next to the gym which is there if that's for you. The Cool spa was great. It's set in a huge villa with beautiful views. The treatments were diverse and the attendants were both professional and very good.

In terms of service, we were continuously impressed by both the staff and management. It felt like there was a 3 (staff) to 1 (guest) ratio. In many hotels this translates to overstated service and quite frankly a creepy experience with staff spending too much time asking you what you want. Instead, the service at Sri Panwa was attentive without being overbearing and polite without being condescending (this says as much about Thais as it does about the hotel I would add). Plus the service is extremely detail oriented. An example would be a diving trip we took (which the hotel booked in advance via email correspondence). We stopped to have breakfast at the hotel prior to the trip and had forgotten towels. We flippantly mentioned it to our waiter (and thought oh well we'll just be wet). However, when the hotel's Tuk Tuk driver picked us up to take us to the launching point he had two towels waiting for us. It is that kind of attention to detail and communication among staff that really set this hotel apart for us--and it was consistent during the entire stay.

What I also like about the hotel is that it seems to have a clear vision of what it is (and what it is not). If you are looking for a place with a scene or to be seen, this hotel probably isn't for you. While there is cool atmosphere at the Baba Lounge (there was a great Thai band playing on our first night doing reggae covers), it isn't particularly flush with guests or a place to meet and mingle (which was just fine for us). This is in part due to the hotel's location in Cape Panwa which is an hour's drive from the "ping pong shows" and visiting sailors of Patong. Rather, the hotel offered us a place to be far removed from having to deal with any noise, traffic, or throngs of tourists. I would also add that if you are looking for a hotel with a beach the Sri Panwa would disappoint. But, with an infinity pool literally outside your bedroom it's easy to look over that.

In addition, the hotel is not for those who are looking for a 5 star stay at 4/3 star prices. What you get at the Sri Panwa is great service, a beautiful property, outstanding facilities, and amazing rooms: but, you pay for what you get.

To be fair, the Sri Panwa is the only hotel we've visited in Phuket. So, there are some reviewers who have more breadth of knowledge about some of the other high-end places. But, with that said, we don't intend to be among them. The Sri Panwa is our spot in Phuket for future visits.
