Phuket Raceweek is once more set to draw crews and crowds from around the world to an acknowledged global champion of yachting, thanks to nature’s bounty that makes of this beautiful southern island a seafarer’s dream. Cape Panwa Hotel, the host and sponsor of Phuket Raceweek, nestled in one of the world’s most desirable tropical locations of a sheltered cove with swaying palms, is there to offer the warmest of welcomes once more. At only 15 minutes from Phuket town, it embodies the luxury of first-class accommodation and facilities while retaining the distinction of classic old-world ambience with an exclusive palm-fringed beach from which the private jetty reaches out longingly to the sweeping vistas of the Andaman Sea.
The hotel nestles on the slopes of a former coconut plantation with its idyllic palm-fringed beach and an established international reputation for unsurpassed service and first-class facilities. An enticing selection of elegant sea-facing suites and villas awaits, from the luxury of Junior Suites, through Cape Suites and Family Suites to the sumptuous Cape Signature Suites. All offer a private balcony and tastefully decorated and appointed interiors. For more independence there are six two-bedroom villas with an infinity pool and secluded decking and the luxurious three-bedroom colonial style Panwa Lodge, a home-from-home right on the beach.
Guests can enjoy free Wi-Fi access throughout the hotel and grounds, two swimming pools with an outdoor whirlpool, a games room, a fully appointed fitness centre and water sports with private speed-boat and yacht charters. At the beach, the newly refurbished Bamboo Bar offers delicious al fresco meals to enjoy in the serene ambience of the tended gardens. Nearby, the classic Sino-Portuguese mansion of Panwa House restaurant beckons you for a taste of authentic Thai cuisine at dinner. The refined atmosphere of the Otter’s Bar piano lounge and the Top of the Reef restaurant tempt you with their cocktails and fine dining or the nautical feel of The Lighthouse Pub with live band offers the perfect settings for a relaxing drink. All day long the Andaman Restaurant serves a menu of Thai and International fare and, of course, the Cape Panwa team is always on hand to pander to your every wish.
Add to the mix of stunning views across the Andaman Sea, excellent on-water management and lavish accommodation, the exclusive Cape Spa where you can luxuriate in an energising or restorative therapy. There are special regatta rates on accommodation at Cape Panwa Hotel and, for good measure, there is the regatta bar and the eagerly awaited regatta parties.
