of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
I needed a week to get away from it all; to relax, and enjoy color, warmth, and beauty. Panwa Boutique offers all of this. Choose a room with a sea view, and you won't regret it. The hotel is neatly situated along the coast, offering a splendid view, easy access to the beach, but also has a very nice and clean pool as well. This is a spa resort. So, there are accommodations for massages and other spa treatments. I took advantage of the massage and facial treatments. Nothing extraordinary, but for the convenience and price, it was still enjoyable and relaxing. The hotel also offers an exceptional taxi service. Pa Tong is about 40 minutes away, Old Phuket 20 minutes, Chalong Bay 25 minutes, and Phuket Aquarium 10 minutes. Every trip, there and back, cost no more than $60 (Pa Tong), but this included dropping me off at 1700 and returning to pick me up at 2200. The closer locations cost much less, $8-25. Overall, the hotel offered the chance to either lounge on the beach, go visit a nearby town, or take a boat trip to the other islands. There are also several restaurants and bars along the beach within walking distance. Very affordable, offering a local cuisine and drinks. I recommend the deep fried bananas!
"Away from the maddening crowd"
What a lovely hotel, right on the beach & away from the hustle & bustle of the island. The staff are so friendly & gracious, they really made the stay so enjoyable! Direct access to the beach, with breathtaking sunsets! It has everything you need in gorgeous surroundings! They really take care of you during your stay! Not too far from most places & 2 beach side restaurants within a 2min walk! Highly recommended!!!!!
"Very very quiet and calm"
Stayed here for 6 days. First the hotel tried to trick us by not giving us the beach front rooms we booked. But after complaining a lot we got what we had payed for. The hotel is very poorly managed. The rooms are not cleaned very well. The sunbeds are moved by hotelvisitors from the pool to the beach and are not taken back to the pool. There is only six sunbeds around the pool... nowhere to sit/lay down. The sunbeds are really dirty and most of them are broken. The pool is big and beautiful, but not cleaned properly. The beach is dirty, a lot of stones, garbage and glass, be aware. We were bitten by sandflies... and could not use the beach. The breakfast is not for european kids... There is nothing to do for kids except PoGo. As you cannot be around the pool (nowhere to sit) it gets quite annoying... The staff is really nice and polite and helpful! Take a taxi to Sawadsee at cape Panwa for . We are never going back.
This resort was lovely,views to die for and private beachs, fantastic rooms clean and fresh Only problem we had was there is no shuttle service from this resort so costing AUD$60 THB$1500 everytime we headed into Patong as we had no choice but to get hotels taxis at set prices :-/ no ATM you either have to get rate of exchange in hotel if not you had to head in to Patong
"Super family holiday"
A super break of 9 days in this lovely area. What was most striking was the attentive nature of all staff. They were not over-bearing but struck the perfect balance of distance and desire to aid a relaxing experience. The pool gentleman put the parasol up for me when it started to drizzle (without asking) whilst I read and my children swam. Another staff member played table tennis with my son. At breakfast after two days my daughter's breakfast noodles were brought out, without even asking, minus the vegetables she meticulously had picked out the previous two days. The air conditioning failed a few days into our trip and immediately the staff came to fix it. They ended up working all day replacing a large component under our room - no easy task, but we were able to sleep like babies that evening. The pool is a good size and a lovely temperature. The beach has soft, fine white sand and there are enough areas of shade, for those who need it (as we do). There are a couple of good restaurants on the beach to enjoy dinner watching the sunset, the best being 'The Beach Bar'. Highly recommend on all counts.
