“never heard the word "no"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

The staff at the Panviman hotel were absolutely lovely... truly!
They went over and beyond to ensure we had a stress free stay.
The room was a delight, romantically presented, beautiful location with see view with a spacious bed and bathroom and although we needed the little taxi (called "tutute") to access it, there was never a problem to escort us whenever we needed it. The little town itself is really lovely and we met a British guy who works on the beach and it was clear that he would not come back to the UK under no circumstances!!! he gave us loads of advice and recommendation e.g. restaurants, bars etc.
we did not use any of the food facilities other than breakfast, which was excellent with a picturesque view. i am one of these people who believe that the planet is too vast to go to a holiday place twice!... but i would make exception for the Panviman and Koh Pha Ngan island.... i am from the French Caribbean myself and when i say that Thailand is beautiful? ... i mean it!

please go there, you won't regret it. everything is perfect: people, food, location, rooms, service - you name it. the beach is pretty, the little village has nice restaurants and bars. only one thing: be careful when the waves are too big. don't enter the water from the side of the resort. it's a bit tricky.

Wow!! Amazing resort we had a room which opened out to a magnificent view of the ocean ! When we wanted to go anywhere we called for the tuk tuk as our room was high up the cliff . It always came with in a couple minutes. The room was big, bathroom was also big. Breakfast was pretty good a good selection of everything. We ate lunch most days at the resort and it was really good also.

The pool area was just gorgeous! One massive pool infinity so u can imagine the view was incredible. Then 2 other small pools . The beach area was also great. Plenty of sun lounges

The staff were very professional and helpful.

The village is a tiny street which we found more great food which was super cheap and delicious.

Over all what an amazing resort we would def stay here again it was super relaxing with views to die for.

Amazing resort, beautiful views, dreamy selection of swimming pools, great beach setting and would highly recommend(in fact already have) to anyone and everyone I know! And Im fussy! Theres a little village nearby offering great food and massages for next to nothing, and the odd pet piggy running around adds to the quirkiness!

Room Tip: From the 2 rooms I saw, the pool and sea views were both spectacular!

We just stayed at Panviman for a few nights and it was blissful. We only booked a week or so beforehand and didn't have time to really think about our whole trip and I just picked out a few places on Koh Pha Ngan for my husband to pick one. I'm so glad we chose Panviman, the views from the rooms are just stunning, the pool is gorgeous and the beaches are perfect. It is also very good value for money - the food and drink at the restaurant and bar were good and not expensive. To top it all off, the staff were so friendly and there is just a fantastic, relaxed atmosphere around the whole place.

Also very useful to know that they arrange transportation - we joined the speedboat going back to Koh Samui, which was a great way to leave, although we wished we could have stayed for a few more days, well weeks even! We definitely hope to go back.

Myself, my partner and 2 friends had an awesome stay here last month. Firstly we were upgraded to private pool villas.. what an unexpected treat! Both were beautiful inside, and the pool and Jacuzzi areas were just stunning with views over the sea and beach. To have 2 pools between 4 friends with our own loungers and parasols made for a very special 4 days of relaxing in our own private luxury whilst still being able to enjoy all the facilities of a great luxury hotel.

The staff were simply fantastic, especially the super friendly and super efficient reception staff.

Breakfast was great, and although we chose to eat mostly on the neighboring beaches I have no doubt that the hotel's restaurants would have been super.

All in all a stunning location, lovely staff and an unforgettable stay. Would love to return one day.

My wife, Sal (Aussie), and I (Brit) had our wedding at The Panviman and the resort could not have done more for us. Many of our guests said it was the best wedding they’d ever been to and despite the obvious bias, Sal and I agree.

Having a wedding abroad, even with a wedding planner, can be difficult. However, at the Panviman the Events Manager, Khun Adam, helped us every step of the way. He returned emails daily in the 6 month run-up and understood all of our requirements despite the language barrier. When we arrived Khun Jesada, the Resort Manager, ensured everything went smoothly throughout our week at the resort. Even Santi, the head waitress, would work tirelessly to help us and our 55 strong party at breakfast, lunch and dinner (she was only allowed a day off once we’d all gone home!).

In the run up to our wedding we had a candlelit dinner for two on the beach. It took the staff 4 hours to set up the table and flowers and fire pits on the beach and they served an incredible meal which even included a taster of our wedding cake just to make sure the one they made for us on the actual day was what we wanted!

We were given additional free spa sessions, a free upgrade to a pool villa for our last 3 days, they helped us set up our volleyball net on the beach, we tested the wedding day cocktails and they changed them when we asked, they carried our bags from room to room (we were allowed the Presidential Suite for 2 nights – a massive room which uses the cliff face as a wall to stunning effect), the floral decorations on the decking used for the service were put out last minute so they didn’t wilt in the sun and looked just stunning, they helped us all to light the obligatory Kom Loy lanterns – the list goes on and on.

The food on the day included a fish station, a sea food station, sushi, a Pad Thai station, curries, a BBQ station and more types of desert than is really healthy. Each dish was incredible (I’ve never had prawns as big/tasty) and there was an embarrassingly large amount of it – we could have had double the guests!

Even the band, Duo Filipinos met us before the big day asking if we had any requests. We jokingly suggested Disclosure’s “Help Me Lose My Mind” a song from 2013 we love. There was no way they knew it already. They LEARNED it for us and surprised us on the night – it became our first dance and a very special moment.

The whole wedding went without a problem, which bearing in mind we’d not had any run through of the day, didn’t have our wedding planner with us and we had no previous relationship with the staff can only be put down to the meticulous thinking and preparation from everybody at the Panviman.

We felt inclined to tip as strongly as we could afford.

My Best Man was equally impressed and he and his wife put together a song called “The Panviman Can!” which we sang to them at the end of our stay which they found hilarious. It was followed by photos of the everybody with the staff and really rather heartfelt goodbyes.

So, we had an incredible time at the Panviman and would recommend a western wedding there to everybody. If you need more information we’d be happy to help, you can contact us on markcuthbertson@hotmail.com.
