    We (couple in our early 20s) stayed at the Kantary Bay hotel for 4 nights (too short!) at the end of October and it was nothing short of AMAZING! As mentioned time and time again by other reviewers, this is a little peice of paradise at great value.

    The good:

    We were there to celebrate a birthday and with a few emails, Ning assured me that the hotel will provide a cake upon arrival. They really lived up to their promise and it was such a sweet surprise and a very memorable birthday. I didn't even have to remind them when checking in, they had it all prepared and waiting in the restaurant fridge. Excellent service!

    Our one bedroom apartment over looking the pool as well as the ocean and was clean and spacious. There were also 2 air conditioning units, one in the living room and one in the bedroom, keeping the rooms nicely chilled after an entire day out in the hot sun. The rooms were always kept very clean and we were given complimentary bottles of water + coffee and tea. The small kitchenette was also well stocked with proper crockery and cutlery, perfect when we decided to buy food at the push carts just outside the hotels to nosh on back in the comforts of the room.

    The breakfast spread was standard but very very tasty. They had 6 different sausages and an omelette station as well as a very well stocked bread station (all sorts of tasty pastries). The waiting staff were also very attentive and polite, always filling our empty coffee cups and clearing off unwanted plates very efficiently. We also ate at the Laem Panwa, the seafood place around the corner and had the seafood platter for 2 (super yums!) and at 800 THB, certainly value for money yet again. Even the drinks within the hotel restaurants were not expensive by any means. The Otter bar at the Cape Panwa hotel (sister hotel) had amazing ocean views and sofas you could lounge on for hours on end whilst being serenaded by their resident pianist. As for our other meals, I could not get enough of the salad made by this lady and her daughter at one of the push carts just down the road. That, a few sticks of bbq-ed chicken and a thai iced tea from the push cart next door and we were set for the night. If the thought of eating off the streets doesn't scare you, you definitely have to try this (all for a mere 150THB). Unfortunately, I don't share the same sentiments when it comes to Sawasdee, to me it was neither authentic nor reasonable, I would have rather ate in one of the numerous hotel restaurants. Their drinks however, certainly pack a bigger punch then the ones in the hotel bar.

    Coming to the beach. Again, everything one could expect from all the reviews and photos on this site also, the shuttle to the Cape Panwa was never more than a 10 minute wait. Do note that it tends to get abit dirty during low tides when all the debris gets left behind on shore. As it's near the phuket harbour, boats constantly come and go, quite entertaining way to spend an afternoon in the sun. Towels are provided at the counter and there is a volleyball net, kayaks etc, all sorts of activities, you definitely won't be bored.

    The not so good:

    We stated that we wanted a king sized bed for the room but we instead got 2 singles pushed together to make a large double. I guess they ran out of king sized beds, then again this didn't bother us too much. Just something to take note of for other visiting couples.

    The trips/taxis from the hotel are quite pricey, again this is something to take note of when booking a tour or getting a taxi to Patong/airport etc. From the airport, we were able to take the meter taxis (yellow and blue) for 500THB. All you do is exit the airport (past all the tour counters and pushy sales people, just be firm!) and turn right to the very end of the platform. You'll be able to spot the ladies in white t-shirts and yellow top taxis.

    All in all this was the ultimate hotel to just get away from it all. We expected a quiet, comfortable vacation and this is exactly what we got. We didn't even want to leave the hotel grounds!

    Staff very friendly and spoke english well. Ridiculous to provide free internet which must be used in the lobby of the hotel. This type of pettiness drives you mad and can only be experienced in Thailand. Pool area great and drinks reasonably priced. Nothing much to do in the immediate vicinity so ideal for couples who do not desire an extreme nightlife. Rooms excellent. Enjoyed my stay and will come again.

    In over 43 years of holidays we have never returned to the same hotel, until this year. We are just back from our second visit to a hotel which has the nicest staff we have ever had the joy to meet. ALL the staff at the hotel are happy polite and efficient, from the girls behind the reception desk, for whom nothing is too much trouble, to the maintainance and breakfast staff, everyone was a joy to meet and be with.
    As returning guests we were invited to an evening cocktail event held in the resturant, where the cocktails and buffet was provided by the hotel. Each lady was also presented with a present which was totally unexpected.

    all the food was of top quality, rooms and all parts of the hotel were spotlessly clean and very well maintained. This is a top hotel and no mistake.

    we would recommend this hotel for anyone who wants 5 star treatment at a 3 star price.

    Room Tip: we had a suite on the 5th floor of the main building, great views and easy access, but to be honest we could stay in the store room at this hotel and still have a great time.

    We have just completed yet another fantastic visit to Kantary Bay Hotel. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and the facilities were even better this time. The addition of The Bakery and Ice Cream Parlour is a sure fire success and a good place to sit and watch the sunset over the Bay. Being able to use the full facilities of Cape Panwa Hotel makes Kantary Bay the best value for money on Phuket. We can't wait to return........again!

    Room Tip: Contact the hotel by email prior to arrival and explain your requirements.
