Crowne Plaza Phuket Panwa Beach Resort launched

Crowne Plaza announced the opening of Crowne Plaza Phuket Panwa Beach Resort, marking it the brand’s first resort-hotel in the region and the brand’s second property in Thailand after the recently launched Crowne Plaza Bangkok Lumpini Park.

Signed in February 2012, this new, secluded resort is located near shopping district Phuket Town and a short drive to Patong, and is set in the Makham Bay to offer views of the offshore twin islands Tapao Yai and Tapao Noi.

Inspired from the local rich Sino-Portuguese heritage, the resort has marbled floors, rich woods and flowing water throughout the public areas and guest rooms, offset by contemporary art, light and space.

Boasting two beachfront pools serviced by specialty bars and restaurants and a semi-private third beachfront pool for those who stay in the resort’s exclusive loft pool suites, Crowne Plaza Phuket Panwa Beach Resort’s suites feature bay window baths and all 224 guestrooms have a separate bath and private, furnished balconies. Free Wi-Fi connectivity throughout the resort is available.

The resort also has a signature Thann spa, 24-hour gym, supervised kids club, resort center, café and lobby bar elevated over Makham Bay.

Crowne Plaza Phuket Panwa Beach Resort’s meeting and event facilities include a bay-front ballroom and terrace, two boardrooms and outdoor spaces.
