Lifestyle: Panviman a Vision of Pure Luxury in an Unspoilt Paradise

Panviman Group is a “Boutique Group of Resorts” excelling in International Hospitality Standards. “Panviman” is a Thai word translated into English meaning “Paradise Alike”, where “Pan” means “Alike” and “Viman” means “Paradise”. Panviman Group consists of two properties one in the beautiful mountains of Chiang Mai and one in a wonderfully secluded area of unspoilt Koh Phangan.

Their vision is to provide customers with a unique experience of luxury and harmony, and with superior service in every absolutely every aspect. The Resort Group has already won several awards such as Tripadvisor “Certificate of Excellence”, World Luxury Hotel Awards, Holiday Check Quality Selection Award, etc. Just reading the customer reviews gave us an inclination of the harmonious luxury and service we would expect in this jewel of tranquillity.

The Resort although not new, originally built in 1987, has been kept immaculate and the natural environment unspoilt. Panviman Resort Koh Phangan was one of the first resorts to be opened in Koh Phangan; the island itself has a long history of being secluded with untouched nature, perfect for finding peace and relaxation.
The tranquil island of Koh Phangan is in the middle of the gulf of Thailand. It is about 70 km. from the mainland and about 15 km. from Koh Samui. Phangan is the largest of Samui’s neighbouring islands with an area of 168 sq km. Over 70% of Koh Phangan is still tropical forests, lowlands, coconut fields and secluded beaches. From Thong Sala pier, trails run to Panviman Resort all the way from Bantai Village through the mountains and to Thong Nai Pan Beach, which is beautiful and unspoilt.

We had specifically chosen Panviman for our peaceful getaway weekend being an easy trip over from Samui and we were certainly not disappointed. Arriving by a private speedboat we were thrilled to be welcomed at the private pier by the staff drumming as the speedboat docked.

We had chosen one of their private Cottages which was completely secluded giving us a wonderful feeling of privacy but so built that you had an amazing direct view out onto the shimmering ocean even from the bed itself. The whole teak wood cottage was luxuriously designed with beautiful massive rooms surrounded by huge glass windows showcasing our amazing environment, even allowing us to appreciate the view whilst enjoying a relaxing bath. Surrounding the cottage was a huge spacious balcony including sun loungers where we could chill in the sun or the warm evening air.

It was obvious that the whole resort had been designed to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the surroundings and the stunning panorama with even the delectable breakfast set in a circular lounge with 360-degree sea views. Next to the restaurant and bar was the main large swimming pool and Jacuzzi, also enjoying incredible views over the bay. There was an excellent choice in varied accommodation from family pool villas with great private infinity pools, spa villas, pool villas and more up to the President Suite. Luxurious choices for every traveller or holiday maker seeking that vacation of a lifetime. Panvimans’ services excelled from their new custom built speedboat offering more power, luxury and comfort with greater safety to their romantic candlelight dinners on the beach. The beach itself is in a private cove with its own restaurant & bar.

For those looking to explore Koh Phangan, the resort is set just outside of Thong Na Phayan’s town, which is easy to walk to and has a great selection of restaurants, amenities etc.
