We stayed in this hotel for 3 weeks and really enjoyed it. The staff is friendly and there are a few good restaurants down the beach as well as the one in the hotel. It is away from everything so it is nice and quiet if R&R is what you are after. They have a shuttle that runs to Phuket...

We arrived at Panwa after midnight and were booked out of our original hotel - the Panwa Beach Resort - into this hotel. At first, we were a bit upset at being booked out but this hotel is actually much better than the Panwa Beach Resort!! Amazing bedrooms - we had a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite with sea view,...

I arrived at By The Sea and was told they did not have the standard room I booked available, so I was upgraded to a 2 bedroom deluxe room, and it was quite a treat. The views from the large balcony running from my master bedroom to the living room were out of this world! I found myself hurrying to...

Too many things to address. First the beach; the beach is beautiful scenery and the backdrop, its picturesque but its impossible to swim during low tide in the morning, (because it's shallow and Stoney) but the good thing is, there's a swimming pool in the hotel while enjoying your sunbathing by the beach in the morning, and when its high...

The rooms in this hotel are incredibly spacious and clean, with beautiful views on a lovely bay. The rooms are very well equipped, with beach towels, flip flops, bags to take your items to the beach, toothbrushes and even a torch, there is a minibar at reasonable prices. The pool is also clean, although quite small (19x5 m). The beach...
