Panviman Resort, Koh Phangan

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Located secluded in a very quiet area looking to the east. Nice and (very!) clean rooms with all amenities. Very good WiFi for work and play. Very friendly staff, both restaurants are good and reasonably priced, the only reason to rent a scooter and go outside is when you want to explore the island and watch the sunset on the other side of the island (30 mins trip for 16 km). The highlight of this resort is their spa. I got the best Thai massages ever (from Gig, thank you!) (and I am around in the region for a long time already), it’s well worth the premium. As well the foot massage was excellent. Breakfast leaves no wish open, I had special request for my omelette and they organised it. Only a small minus on the laundry service - they didn’t follow the written instructions but hey, they solved the problem immediately. Overall, I had great and “chillaxing” 4 days there and I will definitely return when back on the island. Can full-heartedly recommend this resort for people who like quiet beach and island life. The party is somewhere else but this was not relevant for me in this stay.

Panviman knows what hospitality means. From the moment we arrived we got 5 star treatment. The staff was lovely and happy and helpful! The food was delicious at all of their restaurants. The beach was pristine

This resort is huge! There are even a few tuk-tuks which are used to bring you from one area to another. They’ve got 84 villas (some of them with a private pools) but you couldn’t see them because the resort is located on a rock, there are pools, gardens, trees, and all the villas are hiden somewhere between them. Breakfast was amazing - huge selection of food and drinks. The resort owns a private beach which is not that big as public one but pretty good.

This journey was breathtaking The welcome team was so nice and our bugalo’s view was a dream I woke up every morning to admire the view. I highly recommend this experience. You can be a family a couple or whatever the journey can’t not be wonderful.

The panviman resort is a beautiful resort with the best Thai cuisine in the whole island. Delicious food with great price and good serving. Really nice people and great service. Only the resort needs to have a renovation which they are already doing. They need to protect more the rooms from gekkos, and insects. The furniture is perfect but one can see that is quite old. The kid area was under construction, the rooms in front of the pools also. I think after they are finish it will be very nice there. Even though the people are really helpful and try to make the best time for one. We enjoyed it really and I highly recommend the food there especially the Thai cuisine.

Would recommend this hotel to anyone that wants to relax. The hotel is in a beautiful location and the food is amazing and the staff could not help you more. The thai yellow curry was the best thing I had for dinner, it was perfect! The highlight was the organised trip to the full moon party which is such a good night.

Far away from home but not feel like that. Panviman staffs good take care and attention every detail to take care all of us The view and atmosphere in a resort so relax although something need repair but I understand because of I heard from staff Panviman is the first big Resort on Kohphangan. I enjoy so much for my breakfast can’t wait to next morning. On the time relax at beautiful pool We enjoy with Home made Pizza and Spaghetti Carbonara. And We go down to Thai foods and Seafoods platter at Stone beach on dinner. Thank you for all of your staffs to good take care and we will come back sure.

We have just spent 4 nights at the Panviman with 2 friends and I have to say it was simply amazing. What a wonderful resort. We felt like it was our own little bit of paradise. We stayed in adjoining grand jacuzzi rooms and when we were first shown the rooms it took our breath away. The rooms are enormous and on 2 levels with a large balcony/terrace with amazing views. The swimming pools is beautiful and clean with the most amazing views. I recommend getting down early as the sun is on the pool and loungers from early morning to the afternoon about 2.30-3. Sadly we didn’t get the best weather during our stay but even that couldn’t dampen the experience! There is a spa on site and a gym. The hotel staff cannot do enough to help you, and the food in the restaurant was lovely, especially the Thai food. I personally recommend the red duck curry. The buffet breakfast was very nice with a good selection, so something for everyone! Not that you need to leave the resort as it’s so relaxing, but if you do want to explore, there are some lovely little restaurants and bars just a 2 minute walk from the resort. We took advantage of the romantic candlelight dinner package, which was a wonderful 5 course meal out on a pergola to sea. It was the most romantic experience and the hotel staff did so much to help my fiancé do a surprise proposal. We were so sad to leave and cannot wait to come back back, we loved it so much we will be looking into having a wedding here. Thanks you to everyone at the Panviman Resort and we absolutely will be back and we can’t wait! Natasha and Jordan

Absolutely nothing bad to say about the resort, staff, food (breakfast amazing), accommodation, service, everything all excellent. Even though we were in a jacuzzi Grande Room (fantastic) up the very top of the hill and had to get Tuk Tuk, although we walked it every morning for some exercise, having to get the Tuk Tuk is more inconvenient than annoying & adds to the fun, also never waited more than 5 mins. Short walk to the village with plenty of massage shops, bars and restaurants to choose from, special mention to Jip Shop excellent food wonderful service. Only negative was the gym was poor and for a resort of its stature should be much larger and more variety of equipment ( I know who trains on holiday, me apparently, get a life). We will be back.

My wife and I spent the last days of our honeymoon in Koh Phangan at the Panviman. We got an amazing deal on the presidential suite and we thought why not. When we arrived we were promptly greeted with a cold towel and delicious, soothing drink. We were then whisked away to our own private paradise in the private tuk tuk. The suite itself was massive, with two floors and two private pools. It was built into a giant rock face that forms one of the walls. Waiting in our room was a honeymoon cake that was a very nice touch. The staff were accommodating and eager to please. The food was great and the fire show was fantastic. The suite was amazing. We are very happy to have been able to cap our honeymoon off with such an amazing experience. We enjoyed the Panviman so much, we will be checking into the Panviman in Chiang Mai very shortly as part of our next vacation. We would absolutely recommend the Panviman group to any and all that enjoy being pampered.
