“A "Very Special" Hotel”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Excellent location, facilities, accommodation but most important of all considerate, efficient, and caring staff! Nothing is too much trouble for them.

We have visited Kantary Bay 3 times, and are now planning our 4th.

A jewel in the quiet part of Phuket.

The Kantary Bay is located in a quiet area of Cape Panwa, Phuket.

A lovely place to stay! The rooms were big and characteristic. Beautiful view over the bay.

Staff were amazing, they arranged a birthday cake for my birthday even though we hadn't informed them - lovely touch.

Can also use the facilities of the sister hotel too.

Two great pools, the roof one is the best.

Cape Panwa is a really relaxing place to visit.

This is a stunning hotel with rooms that are very spacious and the air con is brill.
The staff are so helpful and make you so welcome. They have another hotel not more than
5 mins away by their own bus which you can use its amenities all FOC. The beach at this hotel
is postcard perfect. Cannot wait to go back next year. We spoke with some people who return
each year for the last 14 years. What can you say to that.

Room Tip: Don't miss the breakfast..

This was our first hotel in phucket and wow! Just love the place,it is a bit away from the busier towns,but worth staying.you can use there daughter hotel with the private beach,and also get to the islands in like 10 minutes. There are several hotel taxis to patong and we thought it worked really well.the hotel itself is lovely with a nice breakfast every day,lots of little markets on and some good little restaurants on walking distance.the staff is to die for,just so nice and helpfull!
We will definitely return to this wonderful hotel.

This hotel is special! It has the best customer service I have known.. If you want relaxed, beautiful, very friendly staff then this is the place! I have had the best holiday ever because this hotel and staff want to help you!!
I was upgraded to a one bedroom apartment on arrival and was delighted that it also had a sea view. The roof top swimming pool also has the most amazing view and I spent most afternoons there. It is also such a pleasure to have the Cape Panwa hotel to use as part of the package as the private beach there is wonderful. The shuttle bus service is regular and only takes 2 minutes. It is possible to walk but in the heat the hill is a challenge. Although this is a very quite and peaceful area there are many places to eat with a range of choices from authentic Thai to Italian, Indian and wonderful seafood.
I will definitely be returning and probably for longer next time!

we have just retuned from the kantary bay and I cant praise the place enough. we were originally told on arrival that the room was not ready for us then we were given an upgrade to the honeymoon suite. well what can I say just totally amazing it really made our holiday. the staff were totally amazing as well they just cant do enough for you. we met some lovely people there as well some of whom stay year after year for 3 months at a time. I must say the place is spotlessly clean and the towels and bedding were change daily. we had a totally awesome time and would not hesitate to go back very soon. totally recommend this for peace and quietness if that is what your after. first class.

Room Tip: all rooms we seen were very spacious and clean even the studio type.
