of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
We have just returned from a 21 day trip to Thailand and stayed in the Panviman for 8 nights. This hotel has a wonderful setting and is located between 2 lovely bays with beautiful beaches. The staff are excellent and the rooms are very large and all with fabulous sea views. There is a local village within 300 metres with nice local restaurants and bars. We have been travelling to Thailand for over 30 years and this was one of the most enjoyable holidays of all.
We stayed here for 3 nights in a deluxe room. The complete areal is great, the service as well, very friendly and attentive all the time. Every morning we were happy to enjoy the gorgeous breakfast (incl. a beautiful sea view). Besides, the village is easy to reach by foot in between 5-10 mins and offers many nice and cheap restaurants. I will recommend that location to my friends without reservation!
We've at Panviman Resort in June this year and we were totally amazed by it. After getting to the hotel with its proprietary speedboat the check in was already awesome. The whole front office crew was very welcoming & made us feel like home. We got a free upgrade which indeed was surprising us. So we were accommodated in a Spa Villa, which was awesome to escape from daily routine. With the free Tuktuk service, you get everywhere in the resort within minutes (breakfast restaurant, beach, etc.). After all we really enjoyed staying at Panviman and will definitely come back! Thanks for having us & the awesome time at your resort.

We enjoyed the stay very much. Everything was great!! I've never seen such a nice Hotel before. The breakfast, the pool, Beach, room, service, everything was great. We are looking forward to visit koh phagnan and panviman Resort again. Thanks for everything!
"Beautiful but lacking in something"
This was the second time I have stayed here, albeit with a 12 year gap, it was 2005 when I was last here. Nothing much has changed since then, it is still as beautiful as it was back then, if anything the private beach area is vasty improved. On a positive note the lady who seemed like the restaurant manager at the poolside restaurant has a smile for days, she was very warm and friendly and had great energy, That said the rest of my experience with the staff was not so great, the check in was a real pain and i was given real attitude from the staff member, having had a poor experience in a previous hotel where they authorised a large payment from my debit card without my knowledge, I would not allow the staff member to take my debit card (not a credit card) out of sight, because of this she got very sniffy and gave attitude, which is not the welcome you expect and really set up the stay somewhat badly. I had fond memories which is why I returned, but overall a pretty yet soulless place that could do with a joy injection. Go elsewhere.
