The "Baba" dining lounge – Sri Panwa

The first waves’ of Chinese migrants to Thailand were men who could not return to China and married local ladies for wives. The same process occurred throughout South East Asia and in neighbouring Malaysia and has come to be known as the origin of ‘Peranakans'. The descendants of these unions then developed their own style of dress, food and culture.

Most of the descendants of Chinese migrants in other parts of Thailand simply merged into Thai society, but here in Phuket they opted instead to apply the Malaysian experience and develop their own style and culture known as ‘Phuket Baba’.

Phuket ‘Baba’ ladies wear a distinctive style of costume, a batik sarong together with a brocade blouse which they wear on special days. Baba food is a mixture of Fujian Chinese and spicy Thai.

So ‘Baba’ for Phuket was the result of different people, cultures, ideas, philosophies, and tastes coming together and creating something truly unique – all in all a bit like Sri Panwa! Welcome therefore to its spectacular Baba Dining Lounge.

Rising approximately 60 meters above the Andaman Sea on the south eastern tip of Phuket, Sri Panwa’s stylish Baba dining lounge is set in a privileged position to say the least. Guests are indulged with an undisturbed panorama of Phuket and the awe-inspiring sunsets provide a romantic and memorable part of the dining experience.

Choose to dine in air-con comfort or opt for ‘au natural’ ambience on the open-air deck overlooking the deep blue ocean. Either embraces you; be it from the cozy cool setting outside or from the architectural and interior detail that tempts your taste buds and invites an eating experience extravaganza!

The Baba serves up a sumptuous selection of authentic Andaman Thai and Continental European cuisine throughout the day. The well stocked accompanying bar provides an extensive wine list as well as a range of tropical cocktails to complement the ultimate dining experience.

Attentive personal service is provided by superbly friendly staff who accommodate their guests with humility and the famous Thai smile ensuring you enjoy the best in authentic Thai style hospitality.

With the owners desire to offer both a chilled out and a party atmosphere, Baba hosts lively parties once a month featuring guest chefs and guest DJs from Bangkok and sometimes even further afield. This provides a great opportunity for guests to join in the relaxed and welcoming gathering which the resort is proud to encourage.

“All our dishes are meant for sharing and sampling, enjoying a meal the Thai way with friends, family or your loved ones.”

“Baba Dining Lounge is beyond deserving. What an experience. Every single dish that came out of the kitchen was out-of-this-world awesome. Fantastic all around food, wine, service, ambience, company. Great night.”

The first resort development of one of Thailand’s most famous property developers the Charn Issara Group, [Editor note; who are known for developing some of Thailand’s landmark residential and commercial buildings and the ultra cool Bangkok Royal City Avenue (RCA) bar, restaurant and nightlife district] Sri Panwa is a family owned and managed estate. Managed by owner Songkran Issara’s 26-year old son Vorasit “Wan” Issara and his young and energetic team, guests are welcomed and treated as members of the family whilst their requests are attended to with enthusiasm.

Indeed designed as it is under the ‘tropical contemporary’ concept the resort seeks to ensure its guests feel as if they are staying in their own ideal luxury home. Every Villa is fully equipped with state of the art facilities and amenities, whilst having a private terrace, sala, and infinity-edged swimming pool. Yet, it is that highly personalised but non intrusive guest service which only the best resorts have and the better-than-postcard ocean vistas which steal the show. The only problem? – it is only yours for as long as you visit, unless your lucky enough of course, to own one of the Villas!
