Pullman Panwa Beach

This beach is named after the Phuket Pullman Panwa Beach Resort found behind the beach. Pullman Panwa Beach is typical of other Phuket east coast beaches with a muddy bottom under the water, not great for swimming or walking through the water. There are few people on this beach, and you can reach it by a small path at kitesurf (200m south of Pullman) or by longtail boat if not staying at the resort.

Pullman Panwa Beach Restaurants / Bars

  • Tree Top Restaurant & Bar – though it has nothing to do with a tree top, as far as we can tell, this small restaurant gets decent ratings and offers an option outside of eating at the Pullman resort complex.
  • Sawasdee 2 Restaurant & Bar Phuket – another option if you don’t want to eat at the Pullman Phuket Panwa Resort, this small restaurant has good reviews and specializes in Thai seafood. Live music at night makes this an ideal dinner spot.

Pullman Panwa Beach Accommodations

  • Pullman Phuket Panwa Beach – amazing rooms and property. Spacious rooms with very updated furnishings. Can accommodate conferences. Villas with pools, Jacuzzi, and large balconies. This is a great place to stay if you really don’t care about swimming at the beach and will spend a significant part of your vacation in your stunning hotel room. Basic rooms starting around 4,000 THB per night.
  • The Panwa Guesthouse – these basic rooms are a cheap alternative to the Pullman and set back further away from the beach. Reviews are good for this 3-start hotel. Rates start around 1,200 THB per night.
