10 Reasons to Stay at Sri Panwa Phuket
We Loved It And Here’s Why
Sri Panwa Phuket is located in one of the best parts of Phuket it is possible to be – at the very tip of the Cape Panwa Peninsula, in the southeast of the island. Covering 40 acres of verdant hillside, the resort is home to 52 suites and villas – with a further seven private residential villas, some of which are still available for purchase – as well as a fantastic array of facilities and amenities.
Each of the 24 one-bedroom and 21 two-bedroom tropical contemporary style villas is built to extremely high standards for comfort, luxury and privacy, with many guests hardly ever leaving them throughout their stay. Those that do venture out are rewarded with unforgettable panoramas, first-class fine dining and a remarkable range of options for recreation.
1Unbeatable sundown experience at Baba Nest
The view from the exclusive rooftop bar is utterly breath-taking in every direction. A sweeping glance can take in Phuket’s southern peninsula, the glittering Andaman Sea, the ships coming and going from the island’s main port, and several of the nearby islands, all over the infinity edge of the surrounding pool. With Baba Nest opening every day from 17:00 and serving up a great range of high-end cocktails and tapas, it is the best place to enjoy the magical sunsets.2An extraordinary range of leisure facilities
While most modern hotels have a state-of-the-art fitness room, few resorts offer as many facilities as Sri Panwa Phuket. For those in search of peace, you will find on-site Yoga and Pilates classes on the floating Yoga deck. For the more active, a professional coach and facilities to match (also both on-site) can help you to master Thai boxing. Other options include cruising and yachting, snorkelling and diving, kayaking, fishing, cycling, tennis, Batik art and porcelain painting, all with on-site instructors and equipment available at the resort.3All villas enjoy beautiful sunrises or sunsets
With the whole resort built on a hill at the end of a peninsular, each and every room comes with an amazing view. While the best is to be had at Baba Nest, all of the other restaurants, public areas and rooms come either with the sun creeping up out of the Andaman Sea or sinking down beneath the low hills of the southern part of Phuket Island. Throughout the day, the sun puts on a brilliant show, which you can enjoy with no obstacles to ruin it.4Get a great view from your bed
The master bedrooms in the resort’s villas have truly unique and unbeatable décor. The bed is large and cosy and the other furnishings are chic and smart, but it is the walls that really take the breath away. Three of them are made from glass. Don’t worry about feeling like you’re sleeping in a fishbowl, though. Each villa is entirely private so you can confidently wake up and go to sleep every day with nothing at all between you and the horizon.5Every room has a swimming pool
Water, water, everywhere! Not only is the resort on a peninsula – surrounded on three sides by the azure blue of the Andaman Sea – but the main bedrooms of the villas are surrounded on three sides by a private swimming pool. Indeed, every room - even down to the smallest room class - has a private pool. What if you are in a west-facing room and you want a morning swim in the sun? There are also three larger public pools, including one overlooking a small beach.6Cool Spa and Salon
Isolated in stunning tropical surroundings as Sri Panwa Phuket is, it is already an extremely relaxing place. However, for the ultimate relaxation, head to the on-site award-winning spa. Treatments range from traditional Thai to exotic signature massages, wraps, soaks, and rituals. The modern, spacious and entirely private treatment rooms each have a large terrace, soothing music and a luxurious shower and bathroom, but skilled masseuses can also bring the locally-sourced natural ingredients in use to your own villa.7Jacuzzi bath tubs in the pool villas
Even the simplest of necessary tasks is something to be savoured and enjoyed in luxurious opulence at Sri Panwa Phuket. When it comes to washing away the worries of the day, guests in the pool villas can choose between a spacious rainfall shower or a soak in the equally spacious Jacuzzi bath tub. Either option is just as relaxing, soothing and decadently lavish.8Cooking classes with a view
Why not bring the gift of knowledge back from your holiday (the impact of which will endure much longer than any souvenir)? With tailored classes with experienced chefs and professional-grade facilities, you can learn to prepare Thai, Italian and Japanese cuisine. What’s more, with the school based in the Baba Beach Club, you can make the lessons truly unforgettable by enjoying the stunning view with your food.9All-day barbecue dining
Enjoying the flame-grilled taste of a barbecue need not be reserved for a special occasion, nor need it be hard and hot work to produce. Instead, head to BabaQ. The Aussie rib-eye steak is chargrilled and bursting with flavour while the Wagyu beef burger makes fast food something to take really slow and savour.10Personalised service with a smile
You would naturally expect good service from any five-star resort, but Sri Panwa Phuket takes special pride in providing service with a smile and a friendly “Sawadee”. If you are a returning guest, you can expect to be greeted by name by every member of staff, adding a charming personal touch to the prompt and diligent service provided.
