Our main idea of this holiday was just to relax in such a quiet and beautiful place. The distant location from the busiest tourist areas of Phuket was a plus for us. No noise from cars or motorbikes will disturb your sleep! However there is not 100% silence at night because of screams of various birds, cats or maybe monkeys living in gardens surrounding the hotel area.
We had a junior suite in block "U" overlooking two bays and some mountains. From the balcony we could see "The Big Buddha" on the top of a mountain, highlighted at night. The room was spacious enough and, in my opinion, tastefully decorated.
Breakfast were great: from fresh fruits and croissants to fried sausages, rice and hot noodles. The hotel's restaurants were OK but a bit pricey. Our favorite ones were "Laem Panwa" for its grilled fresh fish and "Uncle Nan's" - perfect for switching from thai food to traditional pasta.
The hotel's beach was sandy and clean. Sunbeds were under the shadow of trees. One day it was hard to find a free sunbed after 11 a.m.
The only drawback was that the sea was not always clear. Of course it was not the fault of the hotel, but some days we saw some plastic bags and wrappings floating from the sea to the beach. I am not sure but that could happen because of low tides which are often in that bay. Anyway in the hotel's room and at lobby there was a schedule of the recommended time (from 9 to 2 hrs a day) for swimming in the sea.
The hotel offered daily speed boat trips to the Coral island (THB500 a person) that was located not too far from the coast. The trip took half a day and we enjoyed swimming in crystal waters near the island.
We really enjoyed our stay at Cape Panwa and we would like to thank the hotel's staff for excellent service and politeness!
If we go back to the south of Phuket some day we will be glad to stay at Cape Panwa again.
