4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Just had a wonderful 4 day stay at this hotel. Lovely and relaxing little area free of hustle and bustle yet still plenty to do. The shuttle bus between the sister resort (well worth exploring) is free and operates everyday except Mondays . Very handy well stocked store, yummy bakery and icecream shop just outside. 2 nice pools, great breakfast with much to choose from. The housekeeping was exceptional, staff went out of their way to make your stay more enjoyable. Our room had a good sized balcony overlooking the ocean on the 2nd floor. We really liked not having the tv in our bedroom and the layout of our room was well set out. We put the washing machine to good use too. Overall we were really happy with our choice of hotel and would happily recommend this lovely hotel to anyone .

Resided at the Kantary Bay between 2006/2015 and now visit as often as I can. I fully endorse all the positive comments made in past reviews. Staff go the extra mile to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible. Guests staying here can use all the facilities at the 5 star Cape Panwa Hotel There's a free shuttle bus that takes you up and over a very steep hill. There are numerous places to eat - Uncle Nan's (Italian), Laem Panwa (Seafood) then the much accalaimed Kantary Cafe that serves delicious ice cream, cakes, pancakes, tea, coffee etc. At the Cape Panwa Hotel there's the Andaman Cafe (Thai and Western), The Top of the Reef (fine dining), Panwa House (authentic Thai cuisine) and the Beach Bar. The resident band play nightly at the Lighthouse Pub. Down on the sea front and just around the corner there are numerous local restaurants, a bar and cocktail bar that are worth trying out. The hotel has a shop (Trading Post) where you can buy all the essentials and around the corner there is a 7-11 store and a Family Mart. The hotel runs a daily shuttle service to Phuket Town ( less then 30 mins away), Central Festival Shopping Centre (about 30 mins) and in the evening to Patong (about 1hour). There's a charge for using the shuttle service. There's a travel desk inside the hotel where you can arrange day trips and hire a motor bike or car. There are two swimming pools, the roof top pool has a fabulous view over Chalong Bay. All the rooms are spacious and designed for long stay. The one bedroom suites are well equipped with a lounge area, kitchenette with a two ring ceramic hob, fridge freezer and a washing machine. Many guests return here year after year that is testament to how popular this hotel is. It's the number 1 Trip Advisor hotel in Cape Panwa and deserved so. I cannot recommend the Kantary Bay highly enough.

Kantary Bay Hotel is a special place to visit in Thailand. Since finding this little jewel in 2000 we have visited every year, sometimes twice, and it has become our 'second home'. All the staff are exceptionally friendly, from top managers to the gardeners, who work hard to keep the gardens maintained and full of beautiful flowers. The views from the hotel rooms are spectacular. There are two swimming pools and two restaurants. Guests are welcome to use the facilities of its sister hotel over the hill (by free shuttle bus) where there is a beautiful secluded sandy beach, two swimming pools and several restaurants. We highly recommend a stay at Kantary Bay and we hope to keep returning for many years to come. Thank you to all the staff for another fantastic holiday xx

We are lucky enough to be able to stay for 6 weeks in what has become our second home. As soon as we arrive in reception we are greeted by wonderful staff who treat us like family. The rooms are immaculate and kept clean every day,the gardens are beautiful and the gardeners work so hard to keep them looking wonderful. We are already booked for next year,we so look forward to seeing everyone again,knowing that our stay will be wonderful Thanks to all the lovely staff for looking after us and making our holiday great.

The stay at the Kantary Bay Hotel was great. The staff were awesome, the rooms and service was great. Overall, it was a great experience. I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone planning to visit Phuket.

My friend and I stayed at this wonderful hotel for few days and this is by far one of the best hotel I have visited so far. Moment you walked in to the hotel, you are greeted by friendly staff as they provide you refreshment. The staff is very friendly and courteous. The room was very clean, well equipped with a fridge, stove and even complementary ramen noodles haha. Hotel also provide you with complementary voucher so you can drink at bar located near the hotel. I would definitely recommend to all my friends and family members to visit this wonderful hotel. :)

Holidays are what everyone wants and a good one . we have been once before to this hotel and instantly booked for a month this year again. the staff make this hotel nothing is too much trouble and with a smile air con stopped working while getting ready for dinner it took 20 mins to fix and a fan provided while i was getting ready to go out. the above is only a small thing but means so much . the rooms or suites as you want to call them are large with full kitchens and bathrooms . we stayed in a bayside room top facing the bay it had a lift to the floor under us and on top of us the rooftop pool with views to die for . as return guests we had 2 free cocktail parties while there plus pick up from airport and return along with free shuttle to phuket and a cruise to an island as part of our monthly booking. also you have the use of the sister hotel which is reached in 4 mins by free shuttle the beach is private and all free sunbeds and parasols and towels with a bar on the beach that serves food also toilets this setting is just beautiful . if you go to either of these hotels you will not be disappointed . the breakfast is not really special but is cooked and served with a smile and has all you need . the surrounding area has places to eat or use the 5 star hotel cape panwa for a 5 star meal . one good point you can buy vouchers x5 get 1 free or 10 get 2 free this worked out to about £14 for a a three course meal at any of the hotel restaurants all menus are to view at kantary bay reception . Steak night at 5 star is 5 star choose your own meat and have it barbecued If you are looking for a rest and peace this is the hotel for you. no music or bright lights they are a taxi ride to phuket 20 mins . we know you will not be afraid to enjoy once again just go x

Always look forward to returning to Kantary Bay, staff most welcoming and always there to assist if needed. My plane was delayed 7 hours so I contacted the hotel to advise as I had their driver meeting me at the airport. Wasn’t a problem at all, driver was there as advised and I arrived at hotel around 5-30am. Checkin was fast and I was immediately taken to my room which I really appreciated after a long day. The standard of Kantary staff is probably the best I come across on my Thailand trips and never drops. Looking forward to returning in October to these wonderful smiling people.

Our family has been coming back to Kantary Bay hotel for several years now. We appreciate the warm atmosphere and the great views the hotel has to offer. The staff is helpful and friendly and the hotel very well run. Our children have always been welcomed with enthusiasm that we are not used to in Finland : ). The rooms are charming and well equipped with a fridge and kettle etc, so you don't always have to eat out. The rooftop pool is fun and the beach by the nearby sister hotel Cape Panwa is lovely. Cape Panwa area is a quiet and relaxed part of Phuket, and doesn't suffer from the disadvantages of excessive tourism like many parts of the island.

We stayed here for 8 nights. What a fabulous place to relax. The staff are extremely helpful, polite and friendly. There is a courtesy bus to the sister hotel, Cape Panwa and you can use all their facilities and they have a private beach. Im hoping to return again next year.
