Kantary Bay Hotel, Phuket4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We were lucky to get a one bed apartment even though we wanted twin beds we ended up with a very large double. If you have mobility issues you need to tell the hotel as there are stairs everywhere to get to the lift. The lift for the rooftop swimming pool only goes to the third floor so you need to walk up two more flights of stairs to get there. We hadn't been warned in advance. The good bits - lovely clean apartment with everything you could need including a washing machine. There are a few restaurants nearby including the kantary bay cafe which is lovely and air conditioned. In the evening you get fabulous sunsets by the water and all the local stall holders find out along with the locals to eat dinner and sell their goods. The reception staff are lovely and very helpful. You can use the guest room if you have a late checkout. It's a quiet part of Phuket so if you are looking for more action you will need to get transport. The hotel is twinned and has a very regular service between the hotels. We didn't get to the beach but decided to use the kantary pools instead. Bad or not as good bits - The breakfast is sufficient but gets boring after a while as it's the same everyday. The chairs in the restaurant are strange and very uncomfortable as they seem to be made for giants. The restaurant next door has great reviews but we found the staff rude and the good lacking in hygiene. It's left a while before you get it allowing the bugs to have a taste before you do. It's not luxury but it is clean and convenient. Watch out for the pesky mosquitoes they are everywhere.
Just returned home from my 3rd stay at Kantary and planning for my 4th. I really don't have anything to add to the previous reviews, nice comfortable apartment and amazing staff make this a perfect holiday. Nothing is a trouble, all working hard and look to be enjoying what they do. Consistently great. Nice location with many eating places nearby - my favourite this time was The Blue Wave.
We were in Phuket for 3 weeks, and our hotel before the Kantary Bay Hotel was quite disappointing and honestly disgusting. We checked out of our hotel one day before due to our disappointment. We went straight to the Kantary Bay Hotel and asked them if it was possible to check into our rooms one day earlier. They said it was not a problem, and they checked us in immediately. I truly felt welcomed at the Kantary Bay Hotel to the point that I felt that I was VIP. Their staff members are constantly there to help you without any rudeness or attitude; always with a genuine smile. I absolutely loved staying at the Kantary Bay Hotel since everything there was provided for you. If you want to stay in an environment that is collective and calming, you definitely should stay at the Kantary Bay Hotel. Their facilities are clean and neat and this also goes for the Cape Panwa Hotel. You will feel completely relaxed to the point that your hugest problem that you may encounter is "What should I eat tonight?". To the staff members of Kantary Bay Hotel and Cape Panwa; thank you so much for your services. Your services and rooms were one of the best accommodations I have ever experienced.
We were booked in late at night following a flight from Melbourne, lovely cold drinks with a minimum of fuss and shown to our 1 bedroom apartment. Our suite was as we expected, spotlessly clean,small kitchen, comfy lounge room,King bedroom and seperate bathroom,lovely patio complete with front load washer. Breakfast was excellent, everything that you would want,but we believe ,the best surprise, the magnificent beach at Cape Panwa resort, the sister resort where we had full reciprocal rights for. This beach would be one of the best in Thailand,white sand, spotlessly kept by resort, calm waters and a beautiful pool on the beach. We were in absolute heaven for our 14 day stay. Probably the best thing this resort offers is its staff.we travel each year to Thailand for 8 weeks and without any doubt, these were the most attentive ,friendly and best trained we have encountered. All in all,cannot wait to return next year for at least a month. Thank you Kantary Bay, we salute you !!!!
This is a great Hotel. The staff are so helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The room we had has a kitchen, which also includes a washing machine, which is really handy. There is a lounge room and a separate bedroom. The room has two air conditioners for those hot days. Breakfast is plentiful and a great variety so everyone should be satisfied. Best of all are the staff, they are amazing.
Just booked our flights today, for next years, 3 month trip to the awesome Kantary Bay. If you want a great hotel, 15 minutes from Phuket town, with half a dozen restaurants nearby and great staff, who always have a smile on their faces this is the hotel for you, This was our fourth visit in the last five years and our second three month stay (March-May) If anyone has a question about the hotel or nearby area ( Cape Panwa) please contact me . We are lucky enough to go on 6-7 holidays a year and this is the only hotel we have ever returned to - absolutely awesome staff and management, who do their utmost to ensure you have a great time whilst in Thailand Thank you all for yet another brilliant holiday
Great place for a quiet vacation. Nice sea view and nice staff. Room is nice n spacious. Great sister hotel. There's shuttle to and back to the beach. Breakfast spread is good. Recommended for beach vacation !
We arrived to a great welcome from the terrific staff of Kantary Bay Hotel who quickly settled us in to what is now our " second home". We were upgraded to a one bedroom apartment with the bed covered in the now customary Towel elephants/flowers etc. We started meeting( surprise) friends at Dubai airport and this continued as we recognised many return guests from England/Spain/ Germany and Russia who were also there for many weeks some for as long as 6 months. As you may have seen in other reviews Kantary Bay is in still a quiet corner of Phuket. Breakfast is good, though a more regular rotation of choices would be an improvement. There are several good, cheap restaurants close by Including Blue Wave and Sawasdee 2 ( with live music from 7 till 11 pm). The shuttle bus to the Cape Panwa hotel is a great treat over the steep hill. You will be well looked after by Sandi and her team on the beach. Do not miss the Happy hour and the Panwa band at the Lighthouse Bar where Simon and the beautiful Hon will look after you. Until next time, Its good by from us!!!
From the moment we arrived, we felt so welcome, the staff were so smiley and friendly they instantly put a smile on your face. We booked great tours through the lovely guy at the tour desk and he gave us a great deal too. My girlfriend was quite badly injured on one of the tours (no one's fault) and as we arrived back to the hotel, all the staff were made aware, we had a wheelchair waiting for us, she was taken to our room and every time we saw a member of staff the first thing they did was ask how she was. The use of the other resort is brilliant and the private beach is beautiful. My girlfriend and I have been travelling the world for 8 months, and my parents came to Phuket for their holiday to meet us. We all had the best time, it was such a wonderful stay, we go back home tomorrow as our travels have come to an end, and this place has really topped our great time off. We told them once it was my parents 27th wedding anniversary as we were passing and when we went back to the room, there was beautiful flowers all over the bed with lovely swans made out of towels, then the doorbell rang and they gave my parents a lovely cake saying happy anniversary. We are definitely coming back here, thank you so much
This is an older hotel but don't let that turn you off. It's clean, comfortable and the staff are beautiful, caring Thai's. The pro's: >amazing check-in experience. Have never seen anything like it, anywhere! Staff asked us to sit and wait on the foyer lounge and they brought the check-in paperwork to us along with a cold drink and cold towelette. >beautiful, caring staff >split system aircon (x2 in one-bedroom unit) >comfy bed with good quality linen >quiet location >incredible view from the room (ask for a view room) >good WIFI speeds >kitchenette >in-room safe >washing machine on balcony (no additional charge)!! >coffee shop close (makes a mean iced latte) >6+ handy local restaurants (not including hotel restaurants) >free access and use of 5-star Cape Panwa sister hotel (includes shuttle bus over steep hill). Cape Panwa has a beautiful pool AND private beach with deck chairs, towels and a handy beach bar. >huge breakfast for ALL tastes. Normal cold options (cereal, croissant, salad(?), fresh fruit. Around 12 hot options including separate crispy OR soft bacon, various sausages, ham, fried rice, stir fried noodles, baked beans, customised omelette, poached/fried/boiled eggs + more! >6+massage places on the hill to Cape Panwa hotel for relaxing massages, manicure, pedicure, etc. The con's: >it's location is out of the way so be prepared to pay for a taxi if you want to go anywhere!. This is definitely a pro if you want a quieter holiday and don't want to be smack in the madness of a busier location like Patong Beach. >limited English TV channels >small hot water tank means a small bath unless you want it cold >it's an older establishment, but some things get better with age! Overall, I seriously can't fault the place. The con's are being very picky. Fantastic value for money!
