A very welcoming hotel with very friendly, helpful and efficient staff. ”
WE have stayed at Cape Panwa previously normally in the sister hotel to Kantary Bay but on this occasion it was full due to a large wedding party. We knew the Kantary Bay hotel as we used facilities there on previous visits as shuttle buses run between the 2 hotels and whichever one you stay at you can use the other's facilities should you wish. On this stay we were upgraded and given our own apartment with our own private entrance (no neighbouring rooms). It had a downstairs bathroom, large entrance hall and bedroom whilst upstairs it had a superb open plan lunge kitchen and dining area complete with all mod cons, including large tv and a washing machine. It also had a marvellous view over the Bay. Our room was kept spotless by the cleaner each day. The hotel had 2 swimming pools so most mornings we were up before breakfast swimming in the rooftop pool. It was quiet and no children used it so we had a lovely peaceful swim and dried off before going to breakfast. The food in the hotel is good. In addition to the free upgrade from room to apartment we were given free drinks, a meal in the Italian restaurant and a free boat trip for a day to an island. We used the facilities at the sister hotel for the beach and sunbathing as their is no beach at Kantary Bay hotel but in some ways I think Kantary Bay is more convenient to stay in as one does not have to worry about going out in the evenings and missing the last shuttle bus up to Cape Panawa hotel. Cape Panawa is not the place to go if you like a lot of razzamataz and a busy night life but if you like more of a village atmosphere you cant go wrong here. There are several eating places if you want to eat out, there is a really interesting Sea Aquarium and a small nightly market.We were sad to leave several reception staff came to wave goodbye to us but I am sure we will stay there again. After we had been home a few weeks it was my husband's birthday and my husband was surprised to find an envelope from Thailand in o
Lovely hotel, beautiful staff meticolously clean”
Beautiful hotel, great Thai restaurant next door, free shuttle to Cape Panwa Hotel and free use of their facilities which are gorgeous. Free wifi at both Kantary and Cape Panwa in the public areas. Nice beach at Cape Panwa, great restaurant at Panwa 'Cafe Andaman'. Lovely pool at Kantary Bay. The hotel is kept spotlessly clean and the staff are really friendly and very helpful. Great service. Highly recommend for those looking for a good hotel at a great price. It's worth noting that there is a lot of construction occuring at Cape Panwa that continues in the evening so I would recommend staying at Kantary and using the free shuttle that runs constantly to access the facilities at Cape Panwa unless you are determined to stay in a five star hotel which Kantary is not. I'd say it is about a 3.5-4 star however the service is definitely 5 star service.
I made reservations at the Kantary Bay Hotel because of the advertisement saying "quiet" and I ws not disappointed. I only used my earplugs once and that was an afternoon nap during maintenance noise. The staff at Kantary Bay are wonderfully refreshing, all very friendly, thorough and professional. The facility is comfortably fashioned, pleasant to the eye and touch. That being said, my first night was in a too-soft bed(old mattress), but that might be my own personal need speaking. But the reception staff moved me to a better place with a firm bed, and I must admit, a much better view of the Andaman Sea. If I had any need and spoke it, it was taken care of immediately with complete satisfaction. Sunsets in the west were fantastic from my personal window view and from the rooftop pool area overlooking the beautiful Andaman sea and islands Access to nearby Cape Panwa Hotel facilities were also a plus, with free shuttles every 20 minutes, which has it's own private beach, beautiful pool, free scuba lessons in their pool twice weekly for beginners, and a reservation desk for snorkel/scuba/elephant tours and other Phuket activities. On the negative side, no vegetarian entrees at restaurants- had to go around corner to find a nice Indian eatery, which was recommended not by staff, but by a fellow consumer at the hotel. On the bright side, I was given free breakfast buffet tickets which did have a fried rice dish, sauteed potatoes, cheeses, and salad/fruit offerings that this vegetarian (lacto) found quite satisfying for beginning my days. Overall, I will return there again and would recommend it to anyone who is not into the party scene life and wants a quiet yet very comfortable friendly place to stay. Thumbs Up!
It is our 6th or 7th time visiting and we never grow tired of the stay”
The attentiveness of staff is outstanding. Since the last 2 visit, the hotel has been pampering us with surprises-complimentary trips and meals. It makes you feel very welcome when hotel staff are like old friends. Cape Panwa is located in the southeast of Phuket, a quiet part of Phuket. It is a little far from shopping malls, Patong and other touristy places. But having access to facilities in both Cape Panwa and Kantary Bay as well as the local night market is enough to keep us satisfied for 4-5 days without having the need to travel out to other parts of the island.

How lucky were we? ”
I had not done very much research into hotels in the area. My main criteria was to be close to family staying in Cape Panwa hotel which we found too expensive. We loved the Kantary Bay Hotel, much preferring it to the more expensive sister hotel. It was beautifully positioned and we had a lovely view over the bay. The rooms were spacious, well appointed and clean and had the advantage of a fully equipped kitchenette. Breakfasts were good and catered for all tastes. The whole complex was immaculate and the large pools were sparkling. The view from the rooftop pool was stunning especially as the sun set The hotel was surrounded by places to eat and came alive at night when the little stalls arrive selling goods and delicious street food. The staff were fantastic - very friendly and efficient. The beach was just a short trip on the. bus We were so grateful to have found such a little gem of a hotel.

Amazing stay - couldn't ask for more!”
I just recently stayed at Kantary Bay for 6 nights. I really couldn't say better things about it. The staff were lovely, happy to help with any request, always with a smile and a friendly greeting. Rooms are very clean, very spacious. Amazing value for money. One of the best things about Kantary Bay is that you get to use the full facilities of Cape Panwa Hotel as well. There is a shuttle bus that drives between the two properties every 20minutes however I never had to wait more than 5 for one to come at either hotel. Breakfasts were more than ample, serving a variety of international foods. Only thing I would say is that the Thai Banquet Themed dinner night was quite expensive for what it was and I thought that the dancers were a little repetitive. Could miss this. Otherwise I love this hotel and will definitely come back and stay longer next time. There is even a business centre were you can print travel documents - very handy for solo travellers! 10 out of 10
Nice and quite hotel. Very good service. ”
shame there is no beach just outside. but the nearby cape panwa is very nice although getting into the water is difficult because of shallow rocks. service at the hotel was very good. my daughter had a small accident. this was attended by the manager and by competent staff. a car was arranged to a nearby hospital which was excellent. access to the nearby cape panwa is always available. cape panwa offers good facilities with very good food and swimming pool. near kantary bay hotel there are some good restaurants and the sunset bar which is very good and friendly. all in all a good relaxing holiday.
Great value for money!”
We had a great 3 night stay at the Kantary Bay Hotel! We were upgraded to a one bedroom suite. The view wasn't as nice as we had anticipated but we still had a large balcony with a partial ocean view (just some dirty rooftops in the way...). Our room was great though. Clean and very large with lots of extras like a full fridge with freezer, microwave and stove top and washing machine. We loved our room! We were impressed by the breakfast buffet- lots of variety and options although the same each day. The restaurants at the hotel were not nice at all. They felt like a hospial cafeteria. The one that was OK was there seafood restaurant which was an outside patio with OK service. The food was really good at that restaurant. This is not a beachfront hotel although it is ocean front. You can catch a free shuttle to their sister hotel 3 minutes away and they have a decent beach. The sand is nice but in the water it is all rocks, not nice to walk out for a swim. Nice calm water though. This hotel has a bit nicer restaurants for the same price. The service at Kantary Bay was the best! The front desk staff were always so friendly and happy and they helped us set up a lot off little extras in Phuket for very cheap. They spoke very good English too! And last but not least, it was our first year anniversary so the staff brought us a nice cake and gave us extra free drink coupons. It was very thoughtful and made us feel welcome! The service here is great and the rooms are big and comfortable. Although not the best beach or location in Phuket, it is quieter than many other beach areas!
Time to relax!”
The hotel is amazing - from staff facilities, breakfast, and surroundings. There are 2 masseuse, Dao and Pathum massage, which are thoroughly recommended (located between Kantary Bay Hotel n Cape Panwa Hotel). To be able to access the sister hotel facilities such as their private beach, swimming pool, gym at Cape Panwa is a bonus. Thanks especially to Ms Ning who had given us the nice room facing the bay. Thanks to all staff who always try their best to make our stay enjoyable and memorable! We will be back! :-)

Fantastic Staff, Loved this Hotel.”
if you want to feel spoilt and totally relaxed come to kantary bay where you get to enjoy the facilities of two hotels. kantary bay has a jetty and boardwalk and cape panwa hotel has a beautiful secluded beach with huge tropical palm trees and postcard perfect ocean views. buffet breakfast was 5 star and the complimentary drink in cape panwa's otter bar made me feel like a movie star. i love these two hotels! thank you for being able to pay a good price, being upgraded and able to be spoilt by both hotels. i loved it! i want to come back!
We had an amazing time in Phuket staying at the Kantary Bay Hotel Cape panwa. The staff are very friendly and always willing to help with any issues you might have. The private beach is very calming and a short distance from the hotel via a hotel bus. There are plenty of restaurants near bye and the sea front is truly beautiful. I've stayed at this hotel over the the last few years and I always feel welcome already hopefully looking forward to next year. The management and staff a wonderful it feels like family.👍👍👍Breeze Mc

We take it as a great compliment that you feel as if you are among family when you are with us. We look forward to welcoming you back again next year.

Kantary Bay Hotel was an excellent stay. We could not fault the staff or the service. Staff were very helpful. Also, having access to the Cape Panwa Resort and the use of all their facilities made to stay more enjoyable. Hotel area very quiet and picturesque right next door to the Phuket Aquarium. Small number of restaurants to eat at with a good selection on the menu. Even a 7/11 mini mart nearby. However, this place is not for the party-goer - too quiet. Great place for families to stay.

lovely hotel helpful staff with a smile”
although i booked through kantary bay hotel, i booked a room at their sister hotel, cape panwa. it was cheaper that way. the room at cape panwa was excellent with great view and the hotel has all the services expected. great breakfast also. only complaint i have is that they wanted to charge me for a few pages i requested them to print for me from my computer. it was cheap of them. the hotel is also far from the city and is a good place to relax and vacation.
4 star hotel with Private and luxury facilities ”
Actually Kantary Bay Hotel Phuket was a place to sleep 'n rest if you want to do something else .The Hotel will provide shuttle bus to Cape Panwa Hotel(Operated by the same brand)which is absolutely five star luxury hotel with full facilities , private beach and Historical Building .The hotel is just only 50 metres from Phuket Aquarium!.
Comfortable, friendly, efficient.”
Kantary Bay is down at Cape Panwa - it's relatively quiet here and it's ideal if you're not looking for the party scene. Beachside facilities are shared with Cape Panwa hotel and are really good. Lots to do in the local area - and easy transport to Phuket town, Patong or other attractions when you want them. Don't miss the aquarium 100 metres away.
We all like the environment of Kantary Bay hotel”
Such like the commend of residences who came to Kantary Bay Hotel. The facility of swimming pool near beach and roof-top one attracted us to come again. The sister hotel is 4-star hotel, called "Panwa Cape Hotel", absoulutly has a lot of facilities. Such as fitting room, privite beach. As a result, I will come back again.
A great location and super staff.”
Originally the 'Bay Hotel', before its purchase by Kantary, its development probably took place over a long period and this results in a somewhat higgledy-piggledy arrangement, but that is part of the charm of the place. If you're looking for 'nightlife' go elsewhere; Cape Panwa is a peaceful antidote to the noise, congestion and pollution of the West Coast resorts. The rooms are perhaps a little dated but are kept very clean. The buffet breakfast has plentiful choices and is similar to that at Cape House Bangkok, though the surroundings are a little less elegant. What makes the place are the staff.... you are greeted wherever you go and nothing was too much trouble. An enjoyable stay at a charming hotel.
Home away from home”
Kantary bay is very well located at Cape Panwa. It offers via its sister hotel a suberb private white sandy beach.The room (actually the one bedroom flat) is very spacious and confortable and the sea view with its balcony was a plus for the evening drinks. But above all the staff makes the diffrence: smiling, very attentive and very dedicated to customers

Clean, friendly and peaceful”
I was staying at the Kantary Bay Hotel for a wedding in nearby Sri Panwa resort. The staff were extremely polite and helpful, the hotel itself was clean and comfortable. The rooms were fairly standard but did the job just fine. The best thing though is that you get free use of the faciltiies at nearby Cape Panwa hotel which are amazing, which makes the Kantary Bay really good value for money. All in all if I hadn't been in the area for a wedding i would say there's not a lot to do in the surrounding area. A couple of restaurants and one bar down the road (which i would thoroughly recommend as the expat owner is great to chat to), but that's pretty much it. Great for a few days or if you want to chill out, but for young solo travellers i would suggest going somewhere with a bit more entertainment!
Great hotel with very friendly staff”
we had a great stay at kantary bay - the next time that i'm in phuket i will definitely book my stay here. i felt that the value for the money was exceptional here, plus the staff was very friendly. they have many places to eat on their premises, and there are a couple of thai restaurants near there as well. plus, you get access to the beach at cape panwe and their resort facilities there.
