Unwind at Cape Panwa

The only way to describe the Cape Spa would be ‘the perfect place to relax, rejuvenate and unwind’ (physically and mentally).

The treatments are numerous and include everything from a simple traditional Thai massage through to skin detoxification and enzyme therapies and apr├Ęs-soleil rejuvenation to a full-day spa package combining everything from body scrubs and massage to aromatic steam treatment and facial delicacy treatments.

There is a promotion at the moment which offers a 25% discount for all who choose to have a treatment between 10 am and 2pm – the early bird really does get the discount…

Songkran with Cape Panwa

The Songkran Water Festival/Thai New Year, is referred to as the ‘Worlds greatest Water Fight’ and if you choose to walk down the street this week – or visit the beach you will quickly know why!

Water is the focus of the Thai New Year because of the irreplaceable role it plays in agriculture.

Songkran’s origins lie in ancient astrology and in the position of the sun – which explains why it is celebrated on slightly different dates each year – any excuse for a longer party!

Tim enjoyed taking guests to the temple in the morning and neglected to tell them that they would be ambushed on the way home – which meant that his guests were seriously unprepared for the watery onslaught!!!

This was followed by a wet party at lunchtime and then there was dinner at Panwa House with water drunk rather than thrown.

A wonderful day with wonderful people.

SOS Toys

We wrote a post in November regarding a special daytrip that Cape Panwa Hotel organised with the SOS Children Foundation of Thailand, which is under the patronage of H.M. the Queen.

The staff at Cape Panwa Hotel have not forgotten them and recently organised a Christmas and New Year’s Collection of toys and clothing for these children.

The collection was made after New Year and the gifts were chosen carefully. We packed a car with the gifts which were all gratefully received by the children.

Your photographs

The world is full of people taking photographs and our guests are certainly no exception. 

Sometimes I've seen people taking photos of people taking photos of people taking photos of their meal.  

The digital age is upon us (even in Thailand – but I hope that they agree about 3G/4G!!! services here in Phuket soon).

Krittaya and Pavinee
One of the advantages of these digital cameras is that photographs can be shared immediately. 

At Cape Panwa we regularly select photographs of the month and post them directly in the margin of our blog.

Our Facebook site recently ran a competition called 'A Crazy Thing Called Love' and the photograph above is the winner.

If you've taken fab photograph(s) during your stay at 
Cape Panwa please send it/them to Tim who will gladly post it/them on our blog (if the quality's good enough, of course) OR simply join our Facebook and post them there.
