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.

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.

Fourth time and over many years
Wherever we go in the world we find ourselves drawn back to the Cape Panwa Hotel. I would never claim it's the best in the world because there will always be somewhere else that I have not yet been to but for me it is the best so far. Make me a piña colada, sit me on the patio of the Lighthouse Bar and I am in my own personal paradise. Give my son a plate if crispy breakfast bacon and he is as content as he can be. In the evening climb into the whirlpool bath and watch the sun go down or a cruise liner pass by. Ride down on the funicular railway to the beautiful beach and imagine you are a billionaire.

Under-rated hotel and destination in Phuket
I am going to claim this as the most under-rated hotel in Phuket. Before going here, I would never have thought to send anyone here, however now I would not hesitate in sending someone here. There are rooms from standard to luxury, without the price tag. On arrival at the hotel, the lobby is fascinating. There are fish and ornaments and extremely large wicker chairs all round. Extremely tastefully done. Rooms are beautiful and would only recommend 2 people for the Superior Rooms. The pool villas are 2 rooms and would be perfect for a family option. Cape Suites all have jacuzzi’s on the balcony and are large. Request the signature cape suite for an even awesome experience. There are little touches around this resort, such as chairs or egg chairs to just sit and look over the view in the Gulf of Thailand. The beach here was fantastic. As opposed to the other side of Phuket, this beach was protected and had beacutiful white sand beach. There are plenty of deck chairs along the beach and the resort has it’s own pier into the water. The Thai restaurant was amazing. This was my favourite stay. I would return here in a heartbeat. Every staff member was courteous and warm and attended to all our requirements.More
We stayed here for our second week of a 2 week trip. The hotel was fantastic and our suite was amazing. There wasn’t a time of day when you weren’t spoilt for choice for sun beds. We had the half board option and we weren’t disappointed with the quality of food as it was delicious and if u spent the day out on a trip u could use ur lunch voucher to spend with your evening meal and use it towards the a la carte as I did to have lobster. To re charge your batteries after a busy first week was fantastic and would recommend to visit.More

Famous hotel in Phuket
We got a discount "Rainy Season package" from local exhibition (Thai Teaw Thai) 2 months ago. Our package included 2 complimentary dinners and half-day trip to Coral island. We stayed here for 3 nights in Cape Suite and here's what we want to share... Pros. - Staff are very friendly and helpful, you can ask them everything - They have a baby cot if you want (my baby is 9mo) - Room is clean and in a good condition - Jacuzzi is great, we enjoy using it - Food quality is vey good and it is also cheaper at Kantary bay hotel (they're in the same hotel chain) - We love breakfast and thai omelette - Very good wifi signal in the room and lobby - Private beach is the reason we choose this hotel, and I think we have make the right choice - You can watch sunrise at Cape Panwa and sunset at Kantary Bay if you stay here - Very close to Phuket Aquarium Cons. (IMO) - Beware of bugs if you plan to use Jacuzzi at night - You need a dress code in order to enter Otter's bar which I found it's not so convenient - You need to rent a car because Panwa area is quite distant from the other attractions - Shuttle bus to Kantary Hotel is somehow delayed during daytime (I waited for 30 mins at 11.00 am once) but in the evening it's quite on time - Shuttle bus to Phuket town (200 baht, round trip) should have another stop near its attraction (eg., Old town, Night market) because it's a long walk from Robinson's department store to the other attractions Summary : If you want to stay in one of Phuket's signature hotel with in-room Jacuzzi and private beach, this is for you.More
I think that starting out our trip on phi phi island was the wrong thing to do. Phi Phi island set the bar real high. Ladies and gentlemen this is by no means a five star. When we walked into the room we were severely underwhelmed. The space is tiny (superior room) and the balcony is 3 meters wide; overlooking an oil storage facility. Really. The ocean is not turquoise (at least very limited) and there are no reefs close by so you can forget about snorkeling. There are no long boats or speedboats at the resort to take you on trips. If you're coming to Thailand to experience the ocean, islands and relaxation then go to Phi Phi or Koh Samui. This establishment is not as advertised!More
