Sri Panwa

In life, there are few moments that steal your breath away. Those moments act like fuel that keep your life engine running throughout the long grueling hours be it at work or at school. These moments are so valuable that you want to relive them over and over to squeeze out every last ounce of happiness to freshen up your daily life and to keep them fresh in your mind.

Walking into the pool villa at Sri Panwa for the first time was one of those moments. I put the feeling of slowly waking up from the best night sleep to the panoramic view of Cape Panwa  on repeat as I fought my way through the college in the sub-zero weather of Ithaca, NY. Therefore, I was more than glad to go back to Sri Panwa. Although I’ve been there many times, it’d been a good year or two since my last visit. So it was like going back there for the first time.

Some pictures from when we checked in:

Everything about Sri Panwa would wow you.  The first thing you’ll notice about this hotel is how the villas blended in beautifully with the trees, preserving the natural beauty of Cape Panwa, unlike other sight pollutants that sit obtrusively on the surrounding Phuket hills. The staff would do anything to make you feel special and welcome, without being too present. You would not notice them there if you don’t want to: your room will always be beautifully made when you return to your room, yet you’ll never see a housekeeper around for example. I do not think I’m good enough with words to explain how awesome this place is, so I’ll let you guys be the judge with these pictures.

The recipe for the best sleep ever

Since it’s a food blog, how could I not talk about the great food at Baba, Sri Panwa! The first meal we had there was at the pool club, where we had some drinks and snacks. Then we had a great dinner at the same place where we ordered a mixture of Italian, Thai, and Japanese dishes. The Japanese cuisine is by none other than the deliciously fresh Honmono Sushi! Here are some of the dishes we ordered! My favorite was the crispy chicken wings with 3 sauces – miso, chilli garlic, and horseradish (?) And the crispy thin crust pizza white truffle, onions, and parma ham was also extremely delicious. Look at these pictures:

And here comes the food:

Some pictures of the pool club and the drinks:

Pineapple Bramble - gin, pineapple, berries, honey, lemon juice, and soda


Bee Buzzini - vodka, pineapple juice, honey



Sitting amongst the water


Jungle tracks - rum, kiwi, guava juice, and lime juice


Honey Bear - prosecco, gold rum, honey, lime juice

On Saturday, they had a breakfast buffet for the guests with many southern delicacies such as “hor-mok” and “kao yum.” While you can also order any breakfast items imaginable off of the menu as well.  My favorite has gotta be the buttery croissant. I had too many of these little things, I felt like I was committing a crime. My friend also said their “Pad see eww goong” was the best she ever had because the prawns were huge and crispy while the noodle was flavorful. Here are some more mouthwatering pictures:

I love breakfast!

I wish I knew how to do a better job at explaining what a wonderful time I had at Sri Panwa. C’mon computer scientists, start inventing a way to transfer scents and feelings electronically! But for now, this is the best I could do and I hope the pictures did a better job than my words.



Tomorrow, I will tell you more about the other Phuket restaurants I went to, but now I got to go to bed since my eyes are getting heavy and my arms are so sore from 6 hours of making puff pastries! (Those little things are so deceptively difficult, next time I put a palmier in my mouth, I will savor every last flaky crumb!)

Bon Appétit!
