Sri panwa Hotel Review: Family-owned and managed, Sri panwa can be a relaxed retreat or a party resort, depending on the guest's wishes. The villas are designed to feel like private homes, with fine linens, customized toiletries and handcrafted furnishings. Each villa has an infinity pool, and guests are welcomed with baskets of fruit, snacks and iPods already loaded with playlists. There are several "Baba" dining options, including the BabaQ BBQ and seafood restaurant, serving Thai specialties and Western favorites in heaping helpings for families and groups to sample and share in the Thai tradition. Baba Nest is an exclusive rooftop cocktail bar with a spectacular view of the sunset. Guests can take lessons at the Baba Cooking School, and there are batik art and porcelain painting lessons. Several massages, body polishes, cooling wraps and facial treatments are offered at Sri panwa's Cool Spa, as well as standard salon services. Guests have access to a private beach and pier, which makes the property accessible to larger boats and yachts. There are eight beautiful islands to explore nearby, as well as pools and coves. Additional activities include Thai boxing or tennis lessons with professional staff coaches or stretching, yoga and Pilates classes.
