But for the heat you'd think this was somewhere along the British coast. Very large apartments and friendly service. Value for money. The Italian restaurant serves delicious pizza.

We spent nearly two weeks in this wonderful and friendly hotel, feeling as we were part of a big family. The staff look really happy to work there, they always do their best in order to help you with the wonderful Thai smiles. We travelled with our 9 months old daughter that become soon the little mascot of the reception employees, everybody did more than what their job description says in order to take care of her. We stayed in a one-bedroom studio that as plus has also a small kitchen and a microwaves and they provided us a nice crib for the baby. Unless the Kanthary bay does not have a private beach there is a shuttle that every ten minutes drops you (f.o.c) to the nice swimming beach of the five stars Cape Panwa hotel (their sister hotel). As we saw there is always a good number of returning customers, the staff knows them by name and they take care of them year after year.
Around the hotel there are some small supermarkets where you can find almost anything you need but in our case we had to take a taxi to go to the Robinson’s (in the heart of Phuket town, 10-15 minutes from the hotel. As I remember the taxi costs more or less 700 bath) or to Tesco Lotus (taxi: 600 bath) in order to buy good quality nappies (anyway you can find less good nappies also in the hotel’s supermarket) and Heinz baby food. Cape Panwa is a little paradise, the villagers are really friendly and relaxed. There is also a good number of restaurants, the one we preferred was the Sea Breaze restaurant (if you take by foot the road that takes you to the Cape Panwa hotel, it’s the first one on the left side.)

My husband and I stayed at the Kantary Bay for 7 nights in April, the hotel rooms were clean and spacious with views from the balcony overlooking the gardens and sea (beautiful). Facilities at the hotel were first class and I can see why this is a hotel which people return to year after year. There are two swimming pools and getting a sunbed was never a problem the views from the roof top pool were lovely. Staff at the hotel are always are second to none. This resort and hotel is the place to go for anyone looking for a relaxing holiday with great restaurants.

Stayed one night at Kantary Bay, defineity good value for the price. A nice room with a sitting room and cooking facilities especially for those staying for a longer period. It has a charm of yesteryears with lots of flowers and plants. More facilities are available at their sister hotel 5 mins by free bus shuttle. It is quiet compared to Patong but there is the phuket aquarium nearby and night market outside the hotel. We had a rented car to drive out to the city but
otherwise one could explore this area, arrange a boat trip, eating at sea breeze restaurant,
massage parlour etc. A different perspective of Phuket.

Room Tip: Ask for a lower floor if the flight of stairs will become a chore as there are no elevator on some block of apartments.

Another wonderful trip to The Kantary Bay. This time we stayed for 3 weeks, this is our 2nd stay and have also stayed at The Cape Panwa 5 times. The reason we return over and over again is
seeing all the staff they are like an extended family. The area is a place of beauty, its quiet and relaxing with some great restaurants.

We had a one bed apartment which was spacious, clean and had all you would need including a washing machine, fridge and microwave. A huge king bed and lots of hanging space.

The Kantary and Cape Panwa have some great eating places. The buffet nights at Cape Panwa are superb. Sea food night and Steak night only 720 Bahts ++. Great value for the quality of food. Outside the hotel Sawasdee's is great, Dow and her staff are fantastic and also Sabai Sabai on the hill is not to be missed, Ask for Mr Nar. Also a new bar next to Sabai Sabai run by a young American and his girlfriend Steve and Nok is great, good drinks and magnificent views. Prices at this bar are very reasonable. Give it a try you won't be disappointed.

All in all a great place to stay away from the crowds of Patong etc.but near enough if you want to go and party.

I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff at the Kantary Bay for making our stay so pleasant they really do go above and beyond the call of duty to make you happy. Also a big Thank you to Pavinee , Somporn, Jennifer and Sandy at the Cape Panwa who really are such special people always ready with a genuine smile. We will return to see you all.

Love and Best Wishes to all. Kim and Ricky Profitt. xxx

Room Tip: Higher rooms have a better view.
