Panwa Beach Resort Phuket (formerly Novotel Panwa)

Novotel is a well known hotel chain, and there are 2 in Phuket. One is located at the far North end of Patong beach (away from the main drag), the other is found at Kha Kad beach, along a quiet road down Cape Panwa, with a private beach (OK, anyone can walk on it, but there are hardly any other hotels around). I am sure the hotel is lovely, but it's the location that makes this resort my kind of place. Actually I am not 100% sure if this is still a "Novotel", must check it next time we drive this way (updated August 2012). When you see this location, you have to wonder why people want to stay in the middle of Patong! Great views from the rooms, no noise, no cars, no jet skis... We like Cape Panwa. It's a quiet area, with some great views and little back roads. Within 10 minutes of the Panwa Beach Resort you can find the Aquarium, Khao Khad Viewpoint, and a current favourite place of ours called The Beach Bar, which is a couple of minutes walk along the beach from the resort (click on the Beach Bar link to see some photos of the beach on the west side of Cape Panwa near the resort).
