According to various hotel reviews, Sri Panwa Phuket is one of the finest establishments in Thailand and probably the best in Phuket. It has done plenty to deserve its reputation. Located at the top of Cape Panwa, this Phuket hotel gives you absolutely breathtaking views of the coastline.

This luxurious Cape Panwa hotel offers you a truly relaxing location to enjoy your holiday in Phuket. Based between 40 and 60 metres above sea level, a stay in Sri Panwa Phuket offers you resplendent views of the Andaman Sea and neighbouring islands.

Unlike any hotels which only offer sea views from one angle, this establishment is perfectly situated in order to allow for panoramic views of the ocean. Every detail of these guest rooms have been meticulously considered, right down to the toiletries and bed linens. Only the finest products are employed by this hotel and the choice of staff is a reflection of the same principles.

A range of dining options is available at the Baba restaurant and if you are looking to enjoy some well deserved relaxation, the spa will meet your every need. Within walking distance of Sri Panwa is one of Phuket’s most peaceful wharfs and a selection of affordable, yet delicious restaurants. Phuket Town is a short 10-minute taxi ride away while most of the west coast beaches are half an hour when traffic is good.

Other views of the hotel.



  • This hotel could be the best for stunning views and great atmosphere. You can see ocean view from all type of rooms.
  • It is located in a  beautiful location with incredibly lush and exotic vegetation.
  • Restaurant is set on the top of the villa with 365 degree view of ocean.


  • If you’re are looking for a private beach, you will be a little disappointed. To to go the beach you have to walk down the hill which is not delightful. Also the beach is not as beautiful as you may think. This hotel is for great view not for the beach.
  • Very very expensive. The lowest normal rate is $2,000 a night, but of course you will most probably get $650 through OTA.
