we have stayed at kantary twice and have enjoyed both stays..relaxing hotel..i learn alittle more about the area with each visit and i would recommend hiring a scooter ,the area its self can be very quiet depending on the time of year you visit,but there is panwa as well and of course the lighthouse bar there !. i liked it that much that i asked the reception girls for a job (lol) still waiting on that ! ps ,do try the pancakes (yummy) he can be found near the bus stop near sunset bar..never wrote a review,so sorry if its alittle confusing.

Room Tip: long tail boat ride (ask for Rocky,nice guy )

We have been returning to the Kantary Bay Hotel for many years now. That alone is a testament to how good it is, time and time again.

At all levels, the staff are simply wonderful - smiling, welcoming, happy, hard working, delighted to help and please. The happiness is infective and makes a stay there, whether for pleasure or business, a delight.

Rooms are very nicely appointed, clean, tidy, and undergo regular updates to keep them feeling new. Service is excellent. This is not a 5 star hotel and doesn't try to be, but for the price it is superb value for money and the facilities more than adequate. The 'apartment' style offers plenty of room, the ability to 'self cater' if desired. The buffet breakfast on offer is very nice, catering for both Western and Chinese tastes. The adjoining choice of restaurants is excellent - the Clock House for a sandwich/ snack; an outdoor seafood and Thai restaurant; and the more expensive but excellent Italian Style restaurant - Uncle Nan's offering sophisticated dining either under the 'stars' or in airconditioned comfort.

If the onsite facilities are not enough, guests are offered complimentary access and transport to the Cape Panwa Hotel just over the hill.

Altogether an excellent choice for either business, pleasure or family accommodation.

Room Tip: Rooms higher up give nice views over the sea.

Nice room and well functional. There is kitchen in room with fully kitchenware.

I am able to play internet via wireless but need to get password from the reception.

The last day i have to check out at noon but i need room for taking a baht after diving trip in the evening. Receptionist opens room for me for taking baht without additional charge.

I travelled with my husband and 17 year old daughter for our 6th visit and we were just as happy this time as the 1st.

We had a 1 bedroom apartment that more than accomodated our needs, a visit from the maid daily meant that the room was kept immaculately clean. The view overlooked the bay and the sunset was breathtaking.

The service, as always was first class and nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff.

Although the Kantary has it's own pools, we still prefer the beach and although it is located the other side of a steep hill, the shuttle bus meant that this was no trouble to get to. The beach is fantastic, plenty of sunbeds, no music - which is heavenly. A big hello to Sandy and Jenny, who were fantastic yet again.

This is a very quiet resort, so if you want to party this probably is not the place for you.

However, there is plenty of choice in restaurants, either in the Kantary, Cape Panwa or outside of the hotels. We have a few favourites, the Indian is at the top of that list, with Sea Breeze coming a close 2nd this year.

Overall we enjoyed everything that this resort had to offer again this year and can't wait for our return next year.

Room Tip: Kantary Bay - 5th floor
