Discover Phuket!

A personalised excursion by land and sea 

If you're serious about sight-seeing, a day trip on a long tail boat is just the ticket for you! Phuket's glorious archipelagos make it a brilliant destination for exploration, with a huge variety of islands to hop around. Some of these 8 islands are Racha, Maiton, Phi Phi, Coral and Lon, all of which are a 15 to 40 minute boat ride away. 

Sri Panwa Phuket Luxury Pool Villa Hotel creates  personalised excursion for guests who wish to see more of Phuket's surrounding islands. Begin your trip to Coral Island by stepping on board your very own long-tail boat, scattered with large pillows where you can sit back, relax and take in the gorgeous sights. 

On your boat you'll find snorkeling equipment and an icebox filled with bottled water to keep you fresh throughout the day Expect world-class cruising without the rigidness and pressure of a tour operator. To escape the busy mainland, visit the Coral Island Beach and take in the peaceful, sandy bay. 

Learn all about Asian cuisine!

Whether you're travelling with a partner, friends or family, quench your thirst for knowledge by learning all about Asia's culinary history in a cooking class. This activity is great if you want to spend some time having some fun in the kitchen with the kids or if you want to improve your Asian cooking skills. Embark on your Asian culinary journey at Sri Panwa's Baba Cooking School by choosing a Thai or Japanese cooking class. 

Hot tip! 
Take your lesson one step further outside the class doors by learning all about popular fresh herbs used in the Thai cuisine. Luckily Sri Panwa's welcoming is surrounded by fresh herbs grown and cultivated for  use in the hotel's kitchen and spa! You'll soon learn that locally produced fresh herbs are crucial to giving that extra special touch of tradition and flavor.

For animal lovers, we recommend a visit to an Elephant Sanctuary for glorious sights of rescued elephants.  Located approximately a half hour away from the Flying Hanuman, this could easily combined with the zip wire experience, Phuket Elephant Sanctuary will teach you about the history of these animals, not only on this island but other parts of Southeast Asia.

The ethical nature of this park in addition to the incredible work put in by the staff to rehabilitate these elephants creates a very loving and zen atmosphere appreciated by animal lovers. Get to know each elephants' story while you feed them or watch them bathe in the lake.
