Fishing boats float like lotuses upon the crystal-clear waters of Phuket’s Chalong Bay, and the Panwa Beach Resort casts a watchful eye over its pristine white sands and luscious foliage. Residing on the south west coast of Thailand, the island of Phuket is a finely-woven tapestry of mountainous ranges, exotic forests, and idyllic beaches, while long stretches of coral reefs lie hidden beneath the sea. A land rich in Buddhist and Taoist culture, the region comes to life with the buzz of local markets, the ceremony of ancient traditions, and the aromas of authentic Thai cuisine.

The waters of the Strait of Malaccia gently lap at the feet of the Panwa Beach Resort, a majestic and traditionally styled Thai abode, guarded by the exotic plant life of the island. Lavishly decorated, its 77 bedrooms are laden with crisp white décor, while its balconies glance curiously over the beachfront, sea, or the emerald-green grounds of the garden. The aptly-named Dinner By The Beach serves as a focal point for romantic meals and seaside barbecues, while the hotel’s main restaurant, Aroma, serves up contemporary international cuisine before diners move onto the Shaker’s Lounge for cocktails and live music. Tranquillity can be achieved with a dip in the hotel’s swimming pool or Jacuzzi, or with a massage in treatment in the spa, guests can get to grips with Thai culture with regular classes on traditional massage, cooking, and language.
Hit the beach and enjoy a day lazing on pristine white sand or make the most coast with some snorkelling, diving and sailing; all of which can be organised via the hotel. The serene beaches of Chalong Bay are close by for more stretches of palm-lined sand, while boat trips travel to other nearby islands such as Ko Hae and Ko Racha Yai. The filmic National Park of Ao Phang Nga is also reachable by boat, and is famed for limestone cliffs that rise sheer from the water, while a sea kayak voyage provides a closer look. A short drive to Wat Chalong gives time to gaze at what is considered as the most important of Phuket’s Buddhist temples, so take a moment to appreciate the intricate golden detailing that makes up its distinct roof.
