“Can't wait to come back, paradise!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2012

Me and My wife stayed at Kantary bay resort from 28th January to 3rd february and made the best decision to stay at Kantary bay.

Location is the key for the hotel, which is far away from the noise of the phuket town and very near to the nature and sea and offers complete privacy and tranquility. though it is far from town and other piers from where you may go for trips and other activities, but bargain a free pick up from the tour operator and they will give it.

We were welcomed very well by the reception and were explained each and every thing very comfortably on our arrival. Our room was on the bayside wing and the goud floor (132) The room was pretty big with a kitchen and all facalities to make food, a LCD TV and music system, comfortable bed and a lounge. We also had a private jaccuzzi at the backyard which took us for a surprise.

Morning Breakfast buffet is completely continental and the egg man / women can make amazing omletes.

There are few eating places just adjecent to the hotel which serve thai & continental food. There is also an India resturant (LIVE INDIA) and they make amazing food, prices are also very reasonable.

This Place is best if you wish to just relax, as you come out of the hotel and cross the road, you may stroll on the seafront and do some roadside shopping with bargain.

There is a super market operated by the hotel and uncle nan's italian resturant is a must visit.

There are daily transfers to Phuket city @ 130 baht for round trip per person twie in a day (morning 10 and afternoon 2), there are complimentary shuttle service to the cape panwa hotel, which is a sister hotel and very beautiful property, it has private beach and a jetty in case you just need some time alone in water.

The staff is very friendly and supportive.

I strongly reccomend this Hotel.

We recently returned from our third extended stay at the kantary bay after 3 relaxing weeks! We are now looking to book for longer in 2013. The kantary Bay and its staff is a friendly hotel with great facilities and some spectacular views of the Adaman sea. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by nuri who recognised us immediately and we were quickly booked in and taken to our room in the bayside wing which was perfect for us. The food as always was excellent both in the hotel and at the local restaurants keung lay and sawasdee. We cannot wait to get back next year to see all of the good friends we have made. sawasdee!!

We returned to Kantary Bay in December 2011 for our second time, this time was our honeymoon. We were greeted by the ever so friendly, happy and polite staff as usual.
Returning from the pool one day to our room we walked passed reception to be told to stop and wait whilst one of the ladies ran off and came back with a cake for us as it was our honeymoon!!!!! priceless!!!
Dont really have anything bad to say about our stay as the staff at Kantary Bay cant do enough for you! Rooms, Food and even cleaners are great, use of Cape Panwa is fab, and the area is just divine! And not to mention the fab Sunset Bar where Russell, Arissa, Bert and little Nalak the dog greet you with a very warm welcome.
Also met lots of people this time that are on their 20+ stay at Kantary Bay!!!!
We have just booked to return to Kantary Bay in April for 2 weeks to celebrate Thai new year, and cant wait to get back!!!!

My wife and I have just returned from our first holiday at Kantary Bayand we are thrilled to bits. We e-mailed the hotel prior to our visit and asked if we could have a room higher than ground floor and possibly with a view, they replied that it is a busy time but they would see what they could do, on arrival wewere told we had been upgraded to a one bedroom studio apartment free of charge, we had a view of one of the pools and to the side we were looking over the sea. Our apartment had a fully fitted kitchen with all cutlery and crockery, and a microwave, unfortunately there was no rice steamer but a notice said to just contact reception if we wanted one. We had a lovely big lounge area with huge TV, a very large bedroom with the biggest twin beds I have ever seen, loads of storage space and a huge bathroom wirh bath, toilet and a huge walk-in shower cubicle, there was even a retractable clothes line over the bath. The hotel was beautiful, modern and spotlessly clean, there are two pools, the staff are absolutely wonderful, polite, helpful and very friendly. We did not dine in the hotel but breakfast was a real treat with everything imaginable available.The shuttle service to Cape Panwa hotel and beach was approximately every ten minutes. All in all one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in which helped to make it one of our best holidays ever. Thank you very much Kantary Bay Hotel

We came to your hotel for the first time and it is spotlessly clean and the rooms are superb, every comfort imaginable and the staff are marvellous and will help with any queries you may have. There is a shuttle bus which takes you to cape panwa which is the sister hotel where you can use all the facilities if you wish. We had a great time here and there are plenty of places to eat very near. The beach at cape panwa is beautiful and peaceful. We would definitely go back its a really very special hotel and has everything if you want peace and quiet.

Room Tip: We were on the 5th floor and our room was Im sure one of the best rooms in the hotel right in the ce...
