Nestled in the secluded Makham Bay in Cape Panwa, the newly-opened Crowne Plaza Phuket Panwa Beach Resort is the first Resort in Asia opened by Crowne Plaza. A mere 10 minutes from Phuket town and just 50 minutes away from Phuket International Airport, the resort boasts amazing views of the Andaman Sea and surrounding twin islands of Tapao Yai and Tapo Noi. With a private 200-meter stretch of beach, the resort is an ideal retreat to unwind, recharge and explore in one of the world’s most sought-after destinations.
For the ultimate indulgence, check into Crowne Plaza Phuket Panwa Beach Resort’s Royal Suite, which comes with butler service, stately living and dining areas, two elegantly-appointed bedrooms, a Jacuzzi in the master bathroom, a large balcony with daybed and private pool, and one of the resort’s most breathtaking views.
Spread across the resort are five exquisite dining establishments, offering an extensive selection of cuisines that tantalise the taste-buds. Sip and nibble the morning or afternoon away at Biscuit- the bakery-café; snack on light bites throughout the day or tuck into succulent meats and grilled seafood from Splash, the pool bar and beach barbecue; indulge in afternoon tea or cocktails at the breezy Lobby Lounge; explore the aromas, taste and texture of the Italian countryside at Patio Al Fresco; or feast on an array of Thai, Pan-Asian and European favourites at the all-day dining venue Mosaic.
To unwind and receive a much needed energy boost guests are encouraged to try out the Resorts spa facilities. The Thann Spa and Sanctuary has expert therapists on hand to pamper guests with a variety of treatments using Thann’s proprietary products. With seven treatment rooms including a Thai massage room and four couple’s rooms with a Jacuzzi and private outdoor shower, the spa caters to the various needs of their guests looking to rejuvenate and revitalise.
Over at Crowne Plaza Phuket Panwa Beach Resort’s Blue Horizon Water Sports Centre, guests looking for more exhilarating pursuits can partake in activities such as ocean kayaking and windsurfing. The family-friendly resort also has a dedicated Kids Club to ensure that the little ones are well taken care of as well.
Beyond the resort, Phuket offers a wealth of adventures. Staff at the Resort Centre can customise and organise off-site excursions and extreme outdoor activities such as boat trips to nearby islands, white-water rafting, and elephant treks.
