“A perfect place to stay and relax in this peaceful location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2011

We arrived at the Kantary Bay Hotel on the 11th February 2011 to a warm and friendly welcome by Somjai, Ning, and all the Reception staff too numerous to mention, this being our 11th year. We hope this speaks for itself, the Kantary Bay in Phuket is our favourite retreat, offering a comfortable and peaceful setting overlooking the bay, the views of the sunsets are second to none.

We had a studio with a balcony overlooking the gardens, the room was absolutely spotlessly clean, air conditioned, flat screened TV, DVD player, cooking facilities etc.
The hotel offers two swimming pools, fitness centre, and internet. Guests can also use the Sister Hotel Cape Panwa's Beach facilities.

Kantary Bay hotel has two restaurants Uncle Nan's (Italian ) and Laem Panwa (Sea food)
both serve excellent food and good service. If you feel like a snack The Clock House is very good value for money. Cape Panwa has three restaurants Top of the Reef serving top quality cuisine, The Andeman Restaurant serving international food with fantastic theme evenings, Panwa House a colonial restaurant in a beautiful setting serving Thai
cuisine. If you feel like cocktails or sampling the local beers then you might like to unwind and go to the Lighthouse where Simon will greet you in this friendly pub atmosphere.
The Beach is tranquil with white sand and palm trees and the usual facilities, also there is a beach snack bar where you will be served by Jennifer and Sandy who provide friendly and efficient service.
If you want to explore Phuket, Taxis and the local bus service operate a good service.
The hotel reception staff offer good information and are only too pleased to help you plan any trips during your stay.
We are already planning our stay for next year!

if you want to escape Britain in winter the Kantary Bay offers the perfect solution.Varied types of studios and 1- 2 Bedroom Suites are comfortable . Our 1 Bedroom Suite had Fridge Freezer -microwave- ceramic hob - and flat screen TV.- Washing Machine. Spacious and comfortable overall. The bathroom spacious (shoud the updating programme continue, the shower cubicle needs refurbing)
All the staff -Porters-Cleaners-Drivers- Restaurant staff- Cooks -Managment are so pleasant and helpful. Talk to everyone and they are friends for life.
Combined with the Cape Panwa facilities the Resort offers a variey of Restaurants, Swimming Pools and the hassle free Private Beach If you take time to chat they are your friends for life.
If you like quiet and relaxed ,come to the Kantary Bay

We have just returned from a 3 week stay at the Kantary Bay Hotel in Cape Panwa

The hotel is situated in a quite part of Phuket which for us was ideal, you could enjoy the hustle and bustle of Phuket town and then return to the laid back atmosphere of Cape Panawa. We could not fault this hotel, we had requested a room with a view via e-mail prior to our stay, we spent our 1st night in a studio room which was perfectly adequate but had no view at all, the staff promised to move us the next day. As promised we actually got the best room in the hotel ( the honeymoon suite) which surpassed all our expectations.

The breakfast buffett was very good and catered fo all tastes. The rooms and public areas were cleaned everyday and ALL the staff made us feel welcome and looked after.
the hotel provided a shuttle bus to the sister hotel Cape Panwa, the private beach there was lovely and very relaxing.

Recommended restaurants in Cape Panwa:- Sawasadee (just outside the hotel) Sea
Breeze, Uncle Nans, and the little curry restaurant ( near the Sun Set Bar)

Recomended trips Phi Phi Island, James Bond Island, Elephant Trekking. Phuket Zoo.


This was our first trip to Thiland, it was a fantastic experience.

Stayed here in early March and had a wonderful holiday,the rooms are a good size and well equipped.It's a quite part of Thailand and many people seem to return each year, staying for 4 to 6 weeks. I think this is down to the friendliness of staff who make everyone feel so welcome. Manager "M" was especially helpful and always seemed to be around.Would hope to return in the near future.

We have just returned from a month at Kantary Bay. This was our second visit to this very friendly hotel. Many hotels are clean and comfortable with good service but Kantary Bay has that bit more.As soon as we arrived we felt so welcomed.Everyone greets you as if they are really glad to see you
Our room was ready for us when we arrived even though it was 11am. We had the same room as last year though this year we had a washing machine
Very handy.We spent a lovely month in our comfy clean room.
We spent most of our days at the beach at the Cape Panwa hotel bliss Thank you to Sandy and Jenny for all your kindness.We loved Chang time
Finally our holiday was made even more special by our fellow guests. Hope to see you all next year.
