Relaxation is the theme at the beachfront Cape Panwa Hotel, where spa treatments and cooking classes top the to-do list.
The setting of the Cape Panwa Hotel is trademark Thai. The hotel sidles up to one of Thailand’s only private beaches, plus it’s cocooned in coconut groves and tropical gardens.
Design-wise, the hotel showcases its picturesque locale. Junior suites have day beds on the balconies, which peek through the palm trees towards the sea.

2 outdoor pools
You've got a couple of pools to choose from here. They're both set amongst the hotel's palm-sprinkled gardens and one sits alongside the beach.
This place is set in a beautiful Sino-Portuguese mansion that's also been used as a film set in the past. It's right beside the beach, so it offers up front-row views of the Andaman sea. When it comes to the menu, you can expect a good selection of Thai specialities.
The Cape Spa offers up a host of massages and beauty treatments. There's a whirlpool bath, steam room and sauna on hand, too.

Amazing customer service
My boyfriend and I stayed here for just over a week and had the most amazing and relaxing time. We stayed in a superior room which overlooked the sea, it was modern, clean and had everything that we needed. There is a variety of restaurants that serves different cuisines so there is something for everyone but of course is a little bit more pricey than if you go for dinner outside of the hotel. The breakfast buffet is great and varied has everything you could imagine. The staff will go out of their way to make your trip great, not one member of staff made anything seem like too much effort and that was really appreciated. The lighthouse bar is the perfect place to chill for drinks in the evening with happy hour and a live band. The location is a little far from Patong and the main touristy areas but we preferred this as the beach is for the hotel so a lot less crowded. Its not a problem in terms of excursions which we were a bit worried about as the hotel will sort the transportation for you. All in all amazing value for money and would definitely visit again.More
We got married here in February 2016 (so sorry for the late review) and it was absolutely perfect. A massive thank you to Aom for helping me make my dream wedding come true. Nothing you ask is too much trouble and they go out of their way to make everything you ask for come to life. From the type of cake, to the BBQ on the beach down to the archway we were married under. We couldn't have asked for a better place to get married and the day was absolute perfection. The rooms are pure luxury here, the food is amazing, the pools and beach were beautiful. Spa was so professional and massages were amazing. Hair, makeup, dress pressing, creating signs, specific drinks, you name it and they have it available. I highly recommend this beautiful hotel and I cannot wait to return. More
A must-do on the Island of Phuket!
What a spectacular hotel! Cape Panwa is located on a beautiful private beach with gorgeous rooms & stunning views. It is a little Paradise of its own. The Cape Panwa region is quiet, but getting around the island is easy enough, especially with their very affordable shuttle service. We would like to thank Pim & Ken for making us feel like family when checking in, as well Adele & Sandy at the Bamboo Bar on the beach. Overall, this is a gorgeous property where any guest feels like they can break away from the "real world" and sit back, sip on a cocktail and relax. Travel Tip: Wake up early one morning and watch the sunrise from the beach ♡ Thank you!More
All in all will not recommend this one
This was a mixed experience for us. The hotel sits in a relatively attractive location. When we arrived we felt the welcome was underwhelming and the first room (described as a superior room) was very dark, shabby and extremely claustrophobic. We requested an upgrade to a suite and then received a nice bright and much improved room (as you should do given the cost) which was clean and well appointed and we were quite happy with. The room was adequately serviced. There was one small beach that belonged to the hotel and that was fine. The bar on the beach was staffed by unfriendly staff who spoke/shouted to each other whilst serving us and seemed to ignore us. The room service food was good and breakfast ok. The best food by far was to be found in the Panwa House restaurant on the beach. There we experienced the only really genuinely warm and friendly service. We found the hotel was a bit of a hot-potch and seemed in need of refurbishment. The staff in reception failed to pass on messages between us and our tour guide which caused chaos and bad feeling and there was a lack of warmth and certainly understanding in reception and elsewhere. No one at the reception bothered to apologise for this. Some staff seemed to struggle with English and one or two did not make eye contact or spoke to others whilst serving us which we felt to be unprofessional and discourteous. I have never stayed in a hotel where so many of the staff looked unhappy or seemed to begrudge assistance. I think this hotel needs to freshen up its rooms and public areas and spend some time better training the staff regarding customer care! All in all this hotel never ever had the feel good factor that you look for in a holiday abroad and we were actually glad to leave. Certainly, we will not return.More
First, I have to say thank you to Aom and the Cape Panwa Hotel staff for making our wedding go so smoothly. Everything for the wedding was extremely organized. When my wife and I arrived, all we had to do was confirm the final details while having a cocktail by the poolside, and relax. We had our wedding ceremony on their new wedding terrace which overlooked the water. It's an incredibly intimate and beautiful setting. Then after the ceremony we moved down to the Panwa House for the reception, which is right on the beach! We had the barbeque buffet for the reception and the food was much better than the food at the hotel's Cafe Andaman. Not that the food at Cafe Andaman is bad but the buffet's quality blew it away. Our wedding was in the end of May so we were concerned about the weather. Luckily it didn't rain but after seeing the backup indoor venue, The Top of the Reef, we weren't even worried about the rain because the Top of the Reef has these huge windows overlooking the water. So no matter what the weather did, it would have been a good time. The rooms were clean and modern. The location is tucked away in a quiet part of Phuket but it's not difficult to get around. There are a lot of scooter rental shops nearby or if you don't want a scooter you can rent a van really cheaply to go to other beaches, Phuket City, the big buddha, viewpoints, muy thai fights, etc. Transportation was never an issue. Overall, we feel so lucky to have had our wedding at Cape Panwa Hotel. And I recommend anyone planning on having a wedding in Thailand to seriously consider this place! Thanks again to Aom and the staff for everything. -Greg and ZoeMore
