On November 16 a group of European beauties arrived amidst much fanfare at the Cape Panwa Hotel. Traditional Thai dancers, an elephant and a large contingent of our (male) staff were on hand to greet them. 20 Miss Belgium 2010 contestants stayed with us for the week in our newly completed Cape Suites - equipped with iPod docking stations, wall mounted flat-screen televisions and whirlpool baths on every balcony. Mr. Claude Sauter, our GM, was lucky enough to interview two of the beauties during their stay (video posted on youtube). Whilst at Cape Panwa the ladies undertook a great number of activities including elephant riding, bathing, sea-kayaking, spa treatments, donning Thai dress and visiting Wat Chalong and a Thai market. On their final night a farewell, white-themed party took place at Panwa House Restaurant on the beach with dancing, a live band and a barbecue. It was a pleasure having them and we hope to be welcoming them all back again in the near future.
