“Honeymoon in Paradise”
Reviewed October 2, 2011

We have just returned from our 6 night honeymoon at Sri Panwa and we did not want to leave! This place is like nowhere else I have ever experienced and is perfect for a honeymoon or romantic vacation.

Most of the staff speak English (though broken) and all of them will go out of their way to make you comfortable, they literally treat you like royalty from the moment they pick you up from the airport. We had private transfer from the airport which I highly recommend as the car is very comfortable and the resort is about an hour drive from the airport. Once on the hotel grounds you can call for a tuk-tuk anytime to transport you anywhere in the hotel or to the front gate. It is the easiest way to travel around the hotel as it is very hilly with lots of steep climbs that would kill your legs if you walked it too often.

The room speaks for itself and no pictures will ever do it justice. We stayed in the 1bdr luxury pool villa LV17 and it was superb. The view was incredible. We spent every morning swimming in our private pool, perfect way to start the day. The steam room was great to use at night after doing lots of walking around. The only negative I have about the room is that the bed and lounge are very very hard. I jumped face first into the bed when we first got there because I was so excited but it was like running into a brick wall. If you like hard beds then you will be fine. However, after a long day of swimming and shopping you will have no problems getting to sleep. Waking up in the morning and opening the curtains to that view is just pure heaven! The room is almost blackout when all the curtains are closed and nearly soundproof to, so it feels very secluded and private. There is an outdoor lounge area with a glorious view, although the lounge is hard it is a great spot to relax at the end of the day with a drink and your loved one.

The cleaning staff are amazing and always come when you are not there, I think when you call for a tuk-tuk to leave they radio the cleaning staff that you will be out. The complimentary minibar water, soft drinks and kit kats were great on a hot day and they were restocked daily. The staff complete a turn down service twice a day (one morning and one night) it was lovely getting home from dinner to a nice clean room again.

The food at the restaurant is average and very expensive for what you get. There are some great restaurants along the waterfront, we simply got a tuk-tuk to the front gate then walked along the water until we picked a place to eat. We ate nearly everyday at the restaurant closest to the base of Sri Panwa (about a 2min walk), where you can get a 3 course meal and drinks for 2 people for B$700 (around $25AU) compared to a single burger and chips at the hotel restaurant for B$538 ($20AU). There is a convenience store next to the restaurant we went to, where snacks and alcohol can be purchased. It is a tiny bit more expensive than other supermarkets closer to Phuket Town but still good value. However, if you are shopping in Phuket town or Patong it would be worth heading to the supermarket there to save some $.

A shopping day in Patong is a must, we went back twice. Note that it is about a 45min drive from Sri Panwa to Patong so go in the morning and make the most of the whole day there. If you are into nightlife then a night out in Patong is a must, don’t worry about what day of the week it is because it goes off every night.

There is a taxi service at the base of the hotel and for B$1300 ($48AU) you can hire a taxi for the day to drive you to and from Patong and stop off anywhere in between for a whole day. We found a great taxi driver on our 2nd day and kept is card, we called him anytime we needed to go anywhere and he gave us a discount because we kept calling him. The hotel staff will gladly arrange a taxi for you on request.

Any request is simply a phone call away! Can’t work out how to use something in your room? Just call your villa assistant and they will be at your door within minutes to show you.

The small and secluded beach at Sri Panwa screams romance. We spent an entire afternoon down there swimming, canoeing and reading without seeing another person. Definitely head down at high tide as it is a stunning cove to look at and the water is so warm. However, put your hiking boots on as it’s a long way down and stairs all the way.

Unfortunately, we never made it to the Day Spa. We found it was relaxation enough just enjoying our private spa and steam room in our villa.

Sri Panwa is definitely an experience we will never forget. We can’t wait to come back though we will have to save up again as it’s not cheap. You definitely get what you pay for and I would recommend Sri Panwa to all vacationing couples and honeymooners.

We stayed here in July 2011 and it was the best possible start to our holiday. We had a pool suite room which was luxurious, and the rooms / villas only get better from there. The location is relaxing - away from the hustle and bustle of town with no real through traffic. Yet it's easy to get to other parts of the island - we did Phi Phi island, elephant trek and Patong trips from Sri Panwa, and the drive to each was fine. The hotel team helped us organize these trips and while you might get slightly cheaper options - eg, Phi Phi island boat trip - from a street shop, by organizing through the hotel you can rest assured the quality is good.

The breakfasts are amazing and we recommend you take your time and enjoy them. Local restaurants are close by and very good quality. The hotel can drop you there by tuk-tuk.

The hotel facilities are amazing, including a private beach, a variety of pools, gym etc.

It was truly an idyllic place to stay and a special thanks to Gloria, Gift, Tuck and the rest of the team.

We'll be back to stay...

Room Tip: They're all good. You can't go wrong. The pool suites are in one of the main buildings so...

The Sri Panwa is magical. Everything you could wish for in an amazing luxurious getaway. I stayed in the One Bedroom Luxury Pool Villa which has a separate living room and it was just stunning. Waking up to the spectacular view of the sparkling Andaman Sea is just one of the top highlights of the Sri Panwa. Great food (although pricey), a beautiful property and 6 star service make this one of the best Phuket resorts I have ever been to. Note though- Sri Panwa has a really really small beach so you need to be aware of this if you are expecting a beach vacation. You pay for the pool villas here and you will spend most of your time enjoying just that.

Room Tip: If you want a room with lots of sun exposure on the pool make sure you specify as a lot are quite sh...

I have been to many pool villa resorts before, but Sri Panwa is one that made me delight by surprise of the design most. Here, you can stay inside the resort day till night without going out. Your could enjoy your own private pool in the villa that is equipped with jaccuzi pump and air bubble head. Also, a part of pool is made of glass, that one could feel like swimming in aquarium. After swimming, you should end day of exercise with a steam room. Wow. Body is so fresh and clean. And, the last thing that should not miss is to reserve a table at BeBa restaurant at the edge of infininty pool. It's romantic set-up that one should take picture !

We were all looking forward to this resort as the website looked very promising. Our expectations were exceeded! We rented a two bedroom villa for my husband and I along with our 17 & 22 year old sons. What an incredible experience! Our villa was so beautiful with breath taking views of the ocean, great space, simple, practical, elegance in the most well thought out sense. Products, sheets, Nespresso machine, amenities were all first rate. The pools are all salt water and impeccable as is the entire resort. There are so many lounging areas begging to be relaxed in and as a matter of fact, there isn't an uncomfortable place to sit! There is only one restaurant here but the menu is extensive and we sampled many wonderful items. The breakfast was fabulous as well. Every building, every chair, every pool is all so perfectly designated with such comfort and esthetics and oh the views! We were reluctant to check anything outside of the resort as we were so comfortable there, we didn't want to move. There wasn't anything that the resort wasn't able to accommodate us efficiently and with a smile. I treated myself to a hot stone massage on the last day and whatever you do, do not miss out on a spa treatment, the entire experience was like no other! So sorry to go, we will not forget this resort any time soon!!!

Stayed here (in a luxury villa) for a week for our honeymoon, was constantly surprised by the incredible level of service. For example, at one point it was my birthday, and they surprised me with a birthday cake! 

Pros:
- Stunning views
- excellent service 
- excellent food
- Superb villa/general amenities and design

Cons
- not cheap. Room cost aside, food and especially drinks at least 2-3 times the cost of other areas of Thailand. At least all in room mini-bar is complementary 
- The beautiful surrounds come way of being a good 15 min drive south of the main Phuket town, was a little over the reasonably long drives every time I wanted to go somewhere 

Overall, if you are looking for a quality holiday with outstanding service (but not on a budget) I highly recommend Sri Panwa. I know I would return given the chance!

We stayed here for a week during our stay and everything about the resort was great! You walk into your villa and right in the middle is your private pool with a sala to either side. Unlimited snacks and drinks in the pantry are refilled daily and our butler would cut up fresh foods every day for us. The bedroom is extremely spacious and the bathroom is phenomenal. The area around Cape Panwa is really quiet and unlike the busy Patong beach area. You could easily stay at the resort and chill for a whole day. If I have to pick a downside to this resort is that it lacks a proper beach and public pool. We will definitely come back again!
