Sri Panwa Phuket

Exclusive smaller resort with private pools and huge villas

With 52 suites and villas that range from large studios up to 5-bedroom residences, the Sri Panwa Phuket is a solid 5-star resort located on Cape Panwa in the south of Phuket. Each suite and villa has a private pool and gorgeous sea views, but it’s the attentive service that pushes this resort into the upper regions of the luxury resort market in Phuket.

Many resorts with large residence-style villas like this are light on common facilities, but here they have a huge beach swimming pool, tennis courts, a full gym and much more. There are also facilities for children so this is a family-friendly hotel in addition to being popular with the romantic set and extended family visitors. Reviews are mostly 5-star across the board, so the higher prices seem to be justified.

What the reviews say

Reviews for the Sri Panwa Phuket are generally extremely positive, with many saying that it’s the finest resort they’ve ever stayed at. Most people especially praise the service, which is said to be attentive without ever being intrusive. The quiet location and all the on-site activities get very high marks, as do the large villas with private pools and great views.

A few past guests do have some concerns and give the resort 4 stars rather than 5, and a very small number seem to have been disappointed so they leave ax-grinding 1-star reviews. Some mention that prices for food and other items are too high even for an exclusive 5-star resort, but the majority of past guests seem to praise everything and don’t mention things being too expensive.
