Kantary Bay Hotel, Phuket

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A large group of us stayed here to attend a wedding at the VERY expensive resort next door ( Sri Panwa ). All of us ( 25 - 70 year olds ) agreed this was a very comfortable, spacious and welcoming hotel. We all felt at home here within moments of arriving. The staff at every level are well trained and very friendly. It is in a quiet location which we loved, and every nights sleep was undisturbed. No external party noises or midnight doof doof penetrating the rooms. 4 of us stayed in 109 , a 2 bedroom high floor suite with double balcony, kitchenette, washing machine, separate bathrooms, huge lounge / dining area. It exceeded our expectations in size and comfort. There is a large pool near the breakfast room ( never crowded despite high occupancy) and another rooftop pool with great views on this surprisingly spacious property. Just out front are reliable ATM's, a lovely cafe, a mini- mart and several restaurants. A little further up the road around the corner is one of the biggest 7-11's I have seen. Everything you could need is there. As mentioned in other reviews this is the sister hotel to Cape Panwa Hotel just over the ( very steep ) hill and there is a constant shuttle between the two. This allows even more choices of pools, beaches and facilities. What a great deal. The night market along the bay boardwalk opposite the hotel is good too, especially as there is no irritating touting and sleeve tugging as found in Vietnam. This is a hotel I would not only come back to but would heartily recommend to fellow travellers who are seeking a more peaceful holiday to the overcrowded hotspots on this coast . Cheers Pete.

Loved this place,staff can't do Enough for u. Rooms r great and clean,we had a gorgeous seaview and a washing machine,which I've never had before anywhere I've stayed but it was a godsend.It had a beautiful rooftop swimming pool. I would stay here again ifi ever get chance to visit Thailand again

We returned to our favourite hotel in February. As always everything was to a high standard. Our room was large and comfortable with a well fitted bathroom, spacious balcony with a sea view. Breakfast choice is great. The hotel has two nice swimming pools and you have the option of visiting the beautiful beach at the sister hotel Cape Panwa which is just a few minutes away on the shuttle bus. This year we were invited to the Managers cocktail party which was great fun with lots of drink and food provided. The Hotel is in a quiet area of Phuket but the village has several shops and restaurants and most nights a market is set up in front of the Hotel. Thanks to all the staff for their friendly and attentive service with special thanks to Urai, Ning and Boonsong. Best wishes to everyone for the Songkran festival on 13th April. Hope to see you all next year.

We really enjoyed our 5 day stay. Despite the hotel decor being quite dated, it did have a European charm to it and fantastic, attentive staff. The highlight is being able to use the facilities at Cape Panwa Hotel (free shuttle bus) which meant you were getting 5* facilities for a fraction of the price. Loved the spacious balcony area, and the size of the rooms (with kitchen and living room). Breakfast was generally good, and views from 3rd floor were great. A nice promenade area with lots of street stalls/coffee shop and a few restaurants. Downside is location is quite far from main areas, so a night out in Patong can be a bit of a mission! Better suited to people who just want to sit by pool/beach and aren’t too fussed about going out.

What’s not to say that I haven’t already said in my previous reviews. This Hotel is by far one of the best I have visited and I have visited many over the years. Many friends and family ask why I keep returning? The answer is very simple. Upon arrival you are treated like you are visiting old friends. Regardless of what time of day or night, all the staff on duty go out of there way to get your holiday off to a great start. This year we were allocated a room in the bayside which was great to sit out on in the afternoon out of the blistering sun. The room was immaculate and the layout really suited our needs. There is a twin hob cooker complete with all utensils to make a small meal if that’s your thing. The room also boasts a fridge, toaster and kettle. For the ladies there is a small dressing area complete with large mirror and hairdryer. The bathroom is a reasonable size with a bath and separate shower and a wash basin are complete with sockets for razors, hair straighteners etc. Additionally there is a small lounge area at the back of the bed complete with a large screen tv, DVD player and music player and a two seater sofa, chair and coffee table and dinning table for two. There are many dvds in the reception area or take your own. Tea and coffee are available in the room along with two free bottles of water daily. However we prefer our own t-bags so take our own. The house keeping in my opinion is of a good standard and rooms are cleaned everyday. The restaurant for breakfast offer a great choice of food and I believe there is something for everyone. You have local Thai dishes, full English, eggs of all description including, scrambled, poached, fried, boiled and my favourite the fresh omelette. Additionally there is a great selection of fruits, fresh salad ,cereal, yogurts and a choice of fresh breads. Also plenty of fresh juice and pastries. However, for me it is the hard work and dedication to the customer that the staff and management go to- to ensure your holiday meets your requirements. This goes from Management, front of house, kitchen and waiting staff and the gardeners who work tirelessly to maintain the beautiful garden. I say to you all you are a credit to yourselves. Thank you. Finally, there are two pools on site and during the day they can be very hot areas. Now here is a suggestion for the Management. We rarely use these areas because of the metal framed beds and seating, they get very hot in the sun. Maybe you could consider wooden beds and tables to make it more comfortable. Please don’t take this as a criticism, it is nearly a suggestion. I would like thank each and every member of staff for another amazing holiday and can’t wait to see you all again next year. Thanks again Lee and Sharon.

Like receiving a birthday card. Thank you to everyone at Kantary, it just makes us want to go back to see all of the lovely staff once more. No wonder they call it our second home. Roll on October ...

A really friendly hotel, the rooms were large and very well equipped. The staff were an absolute delight, friendly but very professional, always smiles on their faces. The courtesy bus to cape panwa hotel and beach was such a bonus, running so regularly. Felt being able to use the facilities at both hotels gave us the best of both worlds, day time at the cape panwa and evenings at kantary restaurants and street market. Hope to visit again in the future, a lovely holiday full of great memories.

Our 5th visit and absolutely won't be the last. The team at reception are excellent and are clearly guest focussed. You can never tire of sunset on you balcony. Can't wait to go back and will recommend to all to visit.

Just returned from my second stay at this wonderful hotel and it most definitely will not be the last. My advice to anyone looking to stay at this hotel is read the reviews. I think you will find nothing but praise. My thanks to all the lovely staff for making my holiday completely enjoyable and making me feel so welcome on the visit to my "second home". Once again I spoke to many enjoying their stay at this great hotel for periods of one to three my book that speaks for itself.

This hotel was fantastic for our family. Clean and tidy and mostly the staff. One of the most friendliest hotels we have stayed in and it is in a quiet location away from the hustle and bustle. Have to get taxis and buses to get a round but they are inexpensive. Perfect location.
