Wedding Destination – Phuket Thailand
Cape Panwa Hotel is located on the quite southern tip of the east coast of Phuket Island. Built on an old coconut plantation on a hillside, it offers panoramic views of the Andaman Sea and a secluded, palm-fringed white sand beach. The sea adjacent to the beach is calm enough for swimming or water sports all year round as it is protected from the westerly winds. The hotel is self-contained, cosy and ideal or those seeking tranquillity and natural surroundings. Unlike other hotels, Cape Panwa does not suffer from the ill effects of mass tourism. It is aimed at families and individual tourists who prefer a first class hotel in a peaceful environment.
Considered to be among the best destination wedding venues in Phuket, The Cape Panwa Hotel offers more than just beautiful surroundings. Within the resort, there are several locations for both Wedding and Reception, giving brides a huge amount of flexibility and options, to make their big day unique.
For many brides the desire to marry on the beach is irresistible, however some prefer the classic backdrop of Panwa House, from a wedding on the green.
New for 2017, the venue also offers a stunning deck for Wedding nor Reception that simply has to be seen.

Tashmiev and Michael decided one special day just wasn't enough to enjoy the company of loved ones travelling thousands of kilometres to join them.
So they swapped the traditional honeymoon for seven days of wedding festivities at Phuket's blissful Cape Panwa Hotel.
The romantic ceremony set-up was an instant hit with the beautiful bride. "I remember walking down the aisle and thinking it looked like something from a magazine", Tashmiev says. The reception was also, literally picture perfect. "Guests were taking photographs of the tables," recalls Tashmiev, adding that the full buffeyt option was worth the upgrade. "We are foodies and have been to weddings where the food lets them down. So we wanted something that stood out - and it really did!"
An incredible fireworks display, an extravagance made affordable in Thailand, was the perfect finale to their joyous nuptials.
Tashmiev gives kudos to Angela at Wedding Destinations, who created a relaxed experience for everyone, including the older guests, and helped the couple feel confident, despite having never visited the hotel.
"It surpassed our expectations and that was just then hotel. The wedding was breathtaking from start to finish. Guests commented it was the best wedding they have ever been to", Tashmiev says.
She advises other brides to find a wedding planner who understands the local area. "The stress level is more than halved, having someone else organise the details".Tashmiev & Michael
