South of Phuket island, in a remote area where conviviality and charm dominate, the Cape Panwa is a calm hotel, ideal both for couples and families.
The Cape Panwa has a good geographic location. On one side, it is isolated on the south-west of the island, which gives it an absolut calm and a splendid view of the coast and of course of the sea; on the other side, it is 15 minutes from Phuket Town and 35 minutes from Patong where there is a nice night market (open till around midnight) and lively streets at night with a certain number of pubs, bars and nightclubs.
Note that nightclubs in Thailand close at 2am (provided by the governement in order to avoid all type of delinquency but also for the population to be able to work on the following day).
The hotel is 50 minutes from the airport of Phuket.
