Luxury Hotel Review Panviman, Koh Chang, Thailand @panvimanresorts 7


We were warmly welcomed right from the front gate, the bell boy and the receptionists made us feel we’re home and the long journey was over, it’s time to relax. While we were having dinner, Leg, the waiter was really accommodating and full of positive energy.


As we walked into the room, we were greeted with such an amazing and soothing aroma smell. Our room was a Deluxe Room; a double bed with a classic oriental style and a dark wooden headboard. The soft bed was a luxurious and the glass door on the right side of the bed gives us access to the patio, whilst on the left was a window that lightens up the room in the morning and a view of the garden.

Room facilities are also available such as flat screen LCD television, DVD player, plenty space for the closet, a small dining table and wardrobe mirrors. The bathroom was ornamental with massive hot tub and electric waterfalls beside it. This place is perfect for guests who are looking for comfort and relaxation.

On our first night, we had a marvelous dinner by the beach. Background music was played and soothing sounds of the waves joined us as we enjoy our food. I even had the chance to chat with one of the waiters, he was funny and great to chat with.

The breakfast was a buffet with massive options; breads, pancakes, pasta, fresh juices and fruits. On the spot cooking of your requested dishes was  also available. I can easily spend my whole morning eating while overlooking the beautiful beach.

A pool by the beach that suits for family travellers is perfectly located near the beach side where kids and parents can enjoy together. You can also try a spa located by the beach; a great view while pampering yourself is indeed a luxury one. Whilst a gym is free of access, keeping in shape while on holiday should not be a problem anymore.

A small souvenir shop is open during the day for the guests to browse some gifts to bring back home or send postcards to remind themselves of the amazing place they have been.

One of the best feature of Panviman Koh Chang is its location, a few steps from our room is the beach front with magnificent clean green water. Comfortable sunbeds are available and restaurant service is accessible anytime of the day. I’ve been sitting by the beach all day, remember to get a spot here before sunset, it was a magical view to watch.

If you’re staying for 3 days and 2 nights like we did, staying at the resort the whole time is not a bad idea, because there are plenty of things to do and activities for the kids too. Koh Chang has a lot to offer to its tourists, here are some:

Klong Plu Waterfall with an amazing scenery and the freshness of the water is worth a visit. If you’re adventurous enough, you can do a jump from the cliff to refresh yourself from the heat. Tons of butterflies flew around as well or letting fish eat your dry skin is another good idea.

Tree Top Adventure is a one of the must dos in Koh Chang. If you’re adrenaline seeker, you definitely should try this 150 metre cable run. Fresh fruits and drinks are served after. If you’re lucky you might be able to spot some monkeys around the jungle.

Get on the bicycle or motorbike is the best way to enjoy the island and get around easily. Visit the white beach, lonely beach or even head to some bars and clubs.

Hiking and Camping into the nature and wildlife forest will satisfy your curious and nature lover soul. Remember to check for rules beforehand about camping in the forest.

I took a 6-hour bus from Bangkok to Koh Chang, I arrived really tired at that time. I was warmly greeted by the staff in the reception and offered me an authentic iced Thai tea which was really good. I then assisted to my luxurious room. After taking photos, I decided to go straight to the beach to enjoy the sun, which was the best feeling.

When I was feeling like going out of the resort, I can easily take their free shuttle service that drives me to the main road. From there, I’ll have the chance to go everywhere in the islands.

I can’t recommend highly enough Panviman to anyone, from the time we arrived, during our stay and the time we have to leave, the people were all accommodating and helpful. The place was a paradise where we had good relaxing days.

I highly enjoy the moment where I just lie down by the beach side and fall asleep by the sounds of the waves. My mind completely drifted away from the outside world, I was only occupied of how amazing that time was. I enjoyed every bit of the moment I stayed with Panviman.  If I to visit Koh Chanh again, I will definitely be staying here.

  2. I’m looking to go back to Thailand next year, I went to Phuket last time and want to travel around some of the islands. I’ll need to look into Koh Chang now. Thanks

  3. Oh my, we went there when we were in Koh Chang! The island was one of our favourite places in Thailand. Stunning, isn’t it?

  4. Oh my gosh that pool and those views look incredible! I’m actually going to Thailand in a few weeks so I’ll have a deeper look at this 🙂

  5. I love the look of the breakfast buffet! The hot tub sounds perfect for a quiet evening after a long day, too 🙂
