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.

Facilities ► View all
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.

Very nice place to stay :) good size room , very very clean . Superb staff really helpful. Ideal location for family as is really safe . We been there for two weeks in April-may and definitely we will be back :) the best holidays so far we hire a car and really enjoyed :) More
Magnificent super sized beds in junior room was a perfect start to this week in a quiet but great location. Set high up to take in the views of the surrounding waters was just the beginning. Many dining options with very good food matched by a picturesque outdoor drinking area. Main pool was not big but the water was perfect as was the view over the bay. Short but steep walk to a good beach (unfortunately affected by the tides a little too much) with also a refreshing small pool. Great restaurant and café on the beach. Highly recommend if you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of Patong but still close enough to Old Phuket Town.More

I've been to Cape Panwa last year and I'm going back this year. Wonderful environment, private beach, amazing restaurants (special mention for the Leam Panwa). The staff is very discreet and kind. Fresh juice when arriving and orchid flower in the room. I really recommend this hotel.More
We have just returned form an 8 night stay here, having stayed at the sister hotel 'Kantary Bay' last year (which was fantastic). This hotel is beautiful, in stunning grounds with its own private beach which has plenty of sunbeds.The beach is kept immaculate - it really is a little piece of paradise. You can take out kayaks for free from the beach for 30 minutes a day which we we made use of.There's a long pier where you can see loads of tropical fish at the end. There are 2 pools although we preferred to use the rooftop pool at the Kantary Bay hotel instead. The room (junior suite) we had was lovely and had a stunning view over the sea with a large balcony with chairs and double sunbed. The bed was enormous, 7ft! There was a nice platter of fruit in the room when we checked in which was a nice touch, and you're provided with a complimentary bottle of mineral water per person per day. The staff were mainly lovely although some of the breakfast staff were less than helpful.The breakfast buffet was excellent. We were each given a free drink token for the 'otter bar', but be warned, men are not allowed in that bar wearing shorts or sandals! Seriously - who takes trousers to Thailand to wear in the 30c heat! We were however, allowed to take our drinks outside to drink! There's a regular free shuttle bus that runs to the sister hotel, kantary bay, every 20 mins. You'll find quite a few restaurants there and a few market stalls selling clothes, food, souvenirs etc. We mainly ate at the Sawasdee and the Indian (Live India), both were excellent. There's a night market in Phuket town on Sat & Sun. We took a taxi from outside Kantary bay as the hotel's bus goes to phuket town but not the market, and they're quite far apart. We paid 400 baht each way for 3 of us. Well worth a visit. We walked to Ao yon waterfall. It was 3.5km each way and there are some fairly big hills which may be too much for some in the heat. The waterfall is small but beautiful, so worth the walk. I had a massage with one of the lovely ladies on the hill. 300 baht for 1 hr. Fabulous! Cape Panwa area is quite quiet so not for you if you like the night life!More

Wonderful hotel, great staff, absolute luxury. Treated like royalty. Our suite was very luxurious and tastefully decorated. Cleaned thoroughly every day. Would we go back, yes, yes, yes please. Found drinks in the hotel expensive but plenty of places in town to go to.More
