My partner and I travelled around Thailand for about 24 days and stayed in a variety of accommodation varying from basic hill tribe hut to luxury resorts. The Panviman Resort was by far the best for a number of reasons.

Firstly, the location is amazing. It sits upon the crest of a hill between two white sandy beach bays. The breakfast dining rotunda gives stunning panoramic views of both with the beautiful clear-blue sea in the background. For us, we enjoyed being away from the party scene but there were easy connections arranged by the hotel on request if desired. There was also a free transfer from the ferry port 2 or 3 times a day.

Secondly, there were two great restaurants, one on the hill with gorgeous views of the sea, and the other on the beach itself. These were slightly more expensive than average restaurants but you definitely got what you paid for and there was good quality European food on offer too. The beach restaurant had live music every night, bbq seafood and its own mini full moon party. You can easily walk to other hotel restaurants along the beach too.

Thirdly, the room and other facilities were high quality and kept very clean. Our room had a balcony with a great view of palm trees and sea and had the biggest, most comfortable bed I've ever slept in! It also had a fun full height window between bedroom and bathroom (there was a blind if you prefer a bit more privacy). There were a few small pools stepped down the hill towards the largest 1.5m deep infinity pool which again gave a beautiful view of one of the bays. This was always clean and had rackets and balls for playing and loungers arranged to give a variety of privacy. The jacuzzi was a bit poor though and thus barely used. There were also loungers on the beach which were separated from the rest of the beach by a small stream. There was also a small air conditioned gym and outdoor gym park. The only main negative (or positive if you ate as much as us and needed the exercise!) was the number of steps and steep paths.

Finally, the staff were excellent. This was the real cherry on the cake. They were super friendly, always smiling, always willing to offer help and make sure we were having a good time. We even got free scented cool flannels provided while sunbathing! They were also the most proficient at speaking English throughout our whole holiday.

Overall, highly recommended and we would definitely go to Thailand again just to stay here!

From the second you check in the staff are extremely welcoming, helpful and friendly. They provide you with anything and everything you could possibly want for your stay by the pool beach or spa. It is situated in a beautiful location with stunning views. Breakfast catered for all tastes and again had stunning views. The only thing which would prevent the resort from being perfect was the quality of the food in the restaurant by the pool. However we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and would recommend it to anyone.

After traveling around we dicided to end our trip in Koh Phangan. Wish we could have spend more time in this place. We had a great time at the Panviman. Beautiful views, Nice food, swimmingpools, beach and lovely people. Ask for the family room when you're traveling with children. Didn't wanna leave this place!

Thoroughly enjoyed the family stay for a week at the Panviman.
The location provides beautiful views from the accommodation, pool and breakfast restaurant. The accommodation of a family cottage suited a family with two children under 10. The only negative is that the walk to the cottage required a short steep section.
The resort has it own section on the beach which contains attendants , sun chairs and restaurant .
Outside the resort in a short walk is a small strip of restaurants , bars and shops. The restaurants are a good alternative to the resort which are fine but not exceptional.
The staff were friendly, attentive and helpful.
For a day trip consider hiring a fisherman's boat on the beach for a day trip snorkelling.
The children enjoyed the stay and we would all return .
