Radisson Blu Plaza Resort Phuket Panwa Beach

Modestly priced and family-friendly luxury resort on a secluded beach

Featuring 211 guest rooms, suites, and villas, the Radisson Blu Plaza Resort Phuket Panwa Beach enjoys a secluded location with a private beach on Makham Bay. The grounds are large and spread out, so guests feel like they are at a much smaller resort, yet they have access to all the 5-star features they’d wish for. There are private pools with a swim-up bar in addition to the beach, and a luxury spa as well.

A family-friendly resort, there is a Kids Club and babysitting services, and rooms easily large enough for children to stay with parents. This is designed to be a complete resort experience, with 2 restaurants and 2 bars, and a full range of activities. The location is not close to the nightlife of Patong Beach, so this resort is a great choice for families and guests intending to relax. The rates are among the lowest in the 5-star category, so it offers very good value based on strong guest reviews.

What the reviews say

Reviews for the Radisson Blu Plaza Resort Phuket Panwa Beach are generally excellent, with very few complaints of any kind to speak of. Nearly everyone praises the quiet and secluded location as well as the large rooms and attentive service.

Some reviewers mention the interesting fact that it’s a large hotel (211 rooms) and yet it’s designed so guests feel like very few others are around. Several reviewers do mention the secluded location as a great benefit as long as you aren’t interested in nightlife or shopping, which are not particularly close. So all in all, based off of reviews, this resort is great for those seeking a quite, more relaxed vacation instead of one surrounded by lots to do and see right outside of the resort.
