We discovered it by chance. The properly is away from crowds and quiet, which is great! The beach is not great for swimming due to rocky corals but isolated and peaceful. Amazing view! Free use of kayak was great. Not much to do around the area but if you need a quiet getaway, this is perfect.

Beautiful quiet resort in picturesque Cape Panwa. First of all, you need to rent a scooter or car if you want to explore the island because this accomodation is quite far away from the main tourist sights. If that isn't a problem for you, "By the Sea" is a great choice for your vacation. The staff is always smiling and...

Some friends and I had a lovely stay on the Panwa side of Phuket. All the staff were friendly and accommodating.
