"Got a deal - excellent hotel resort - killer view"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on May 29, 2012
The rooms we had were amazing with sea views, there are a lot of infinity pools and a beach that is secluded. the resort is top notch. Negatives: lots of climbing to get to rooms as many have sea views, prices for food and drinks border on exorbitant. The breakfast is amazing with great fruit selection, crepes and capacinos. Drive into town is $10 but worth it if you want to eat some decently priced excellent tasting food.
A great resort to stay at , I especially liked the tourist service located at the front of the hotel, the people were very helpful in setting up all of our plans for our stay on Phuket,. I will come back to this resort when I visit Phuket again.

We loved our stay at The Panwa Beach Resort. It was very clean, the staff were fantastic, the food was excellent, and the beach was beautiful. The only drawback might be the distance of the resort from the airport and other main attractions, but we did not find this to be a problem. It is in a quiet neighbourhood perfect for a relaxing getaway. If I'm ever in Thailand again I would absolutely go back!

The two-level pool was really nice and room was large and comfortable. The hotel is just a very quick walk to the southern portion of Karon Beach with a nice variety of restaurant close by. Seaview rooms are located on upper floors of hotel, which require a pretty significant climb to reach and there is no elevator- the view is worth the extra $$ and burnt calories though! Overall great value for the rate that we received through Hotels.com
"Really enjoyed this hotel but location uphill"

I spent 2 days here in april and really enyoyed this hotel. Pool, jaccuzi welcome drink, good tv chanel selection. Food at restaurant was absolutely delicious we ate there 2 nights, well priced for karon beach. The hotel staff particuarly Ead and Olle are so professional, friendly and made us so comfortable with 2 kids in tow undr 4 years old. I really really loved the hotel. One thing it is uphill, we didnt rent motorbike and had to walk and boy this was annoying and tiering. I dont recall other reviewers mentioning that so it was a surprise for us. It is a good 10 mns walk to the beach, going down is not that bad but uphill was a pain. Coming from bangkok where we enjoyed free tuk tuk service to compensate for the distance we really wished the hotel offered such services.
We didnt try the spa but as expected services are pricier there than for example local business.
Would consider again if i also plan to rent a bike or if managemnt decide to offer complimentary tuk tuk service to bribg ppl up the hill. That us our only complaint
