Kantary bay hotel is one of the best hotels I have stayed in, the service is fantastic always with a smile, were made to feel very welcome. The rooms are great very clean and have everything thing we need they also now have a washing machine which has come in very handy. The restaurant in the hotel serves fantastic food and the happy hour in the evening is a must. In short if you want a relaxing friendly atmosphere with beautiful scenery this is the place

We've just returned from another stay at Kantary Bay. On arrival we were upgraded to a one bedroom apartment (our usual Studio Room being occupied by new Kantarians). The room in the Bay Wing was large with separate bedroom, large bathroom (bath and separate shower cubicle), well equipped kitchenette (with a super efficient fridge/freezer), living area with sofa/chair/table and four dining chairs and TV/entertainment unit. From the balcony there were fantastic views across the bay and it was lovely to sit of an evening watching the sunset with a chilled glass of wine. Our neighbours were very quiet, a long term resident on one side and the other returnees like us (certainly not night owls). The room was well maintained and the hotel provide two bottles of water daily, it was cleaned daily and the housekeeping staff work hard to keep the rooms and communal areas clean. Breakfast is included in the price and the selection available was good and fresh, the breakfast room tending to fill up from 8am with short stay guests and it could get very noisy however the food combinations being piled onto plates was always entertaining. There is a small supermarket on site which is good for stocking up on beers, soft drinks etc and next to that a small coffee shop that sells delicious ice-cream. We used the two restaurants in the hotel, Uncle Nan's serves tasty Italian style food however Laem Panwa is the best, it gives the impression of being predominately seafood however it has an extensive menu. From the chefs to the waiting/bar staff all of the staff we encountered were friendly, efficient and trained to a high standard. Panwa House (Cape Panwa hotel) had a traditional Thai menu and is slightly more expensive then the other restaurants in the area but the setting on the beach is stunning. Of the restaurants outside the hotel we used Sabai Sabai (main road into the village - brilliant waiter), Kaem Lay (opposite the Naval base), Seabreeze (on the hill to Cape Panwa) and Sawasdee (mentioned many times) and I don't think we had one bad meal - the seafood in all being especially good. We heard good reports of On the Beach but are saving that for our next visit.

The beach at Cape Panwa (sister hotel) reached by using the shuttle bus which runs between the two hotels is lovely and we never had any trouble finding a sunbed although these are now showing their age and are not conducive to along afternoon snooze.

The staff from the beach girls to the blokes who run the boat to Coral Island are great
but we can't finish this review without mentioning the Reception and back room staff at Kantary, our e-mails prior to our arrival were answered promptly and I don't think that there was one occasion when we walked through reception without being greeted by our names and charming smiles, they really are an asset to this hotel chain.

All in all another fantastic holiday and we think we're very lucky to have found Kantary.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have better views and the Bay Wing is quieter than the Pool Wing

Just returned from a 15 night say in Thailand, 13 nights of which we stayed at the Kantary Bay.
The staff on reception are always helpful, the hotel is smart and clean. The fact that you have the use of the two pools at the Kantary Bay, as well as being allowed to use the pools at the Cape Panwa Hotel made it even better. Being by the roof top pool for the late afternoon was a pleasure, watching the sun going down behind the islands to the west of the hotel was great.
We had room 352, a single room apartment, everything you needed was there including a washer machine and a microwave. This hotel is the place to go if you just want to relax.
I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel as it proved to be excellent value.

we arrived to kantary bay for 1 night and end up spending there 5 great nights, this place is amazing, the room was large, clean and comfortable. breakfast is great, rich and fresh. the staff are very kind and willing to help you any way you please. the hotel makes shuttles from the hotel to phuket town, to the night market and to patong beach (it cost between 170-200 baht per person). but if you please to pay much less there is a bus stop right next to the hotel that charge 30 baht to phuket town and take about 15 min (but it works until 4pm- you should ask the front desk about the bus time table). this hotel has sister hotel named "cape panwa" it is really near by "kantary bay", cape panwa is very very exclusive hotel and a room there costs about 3 or 4 times more then a room in kantary bay, but as a guess in kanyart bay you may use all the facilities inclוding the private and very very beauty beach. the restaurants there very good especially the thai food restaurant that located on the beach and has the BEST Thai deserts,
i will definitely come back to this hotel or maybe if i have enough money i will go next time to cape panwa

My partner and I stayed in Kantary Bay, Phuket during 8th to 16th of October 2012. We experienced a great service from all the staff from this hotel. Although this is a 4 stars hotel, it has everything you can have in 5 stars hotel. There are two swimming pools, one is on the ground floor and the other on is on the roof top. We always used the roof top one because you can fantastic view from there, the ocean is just cross the hotel.
This hotel is suitable for all range of people, there are plenty restaurants along the street and only takes 30 mins to Patong Beach.

Thanks again to all the friendly and helpful staff, Sudarat, Thiwaporn.T Penprapa, Jindanuch, Viyada and Nim and whoever I don't know the names... you guys sensational service gave us the greatest holiday!

Paul and Eric from Room 432

Room Tip: Ask for a ocean view room if available :)
