Fantasea is really not my cup of tea. A fully “packaged” almost circus-type show. It’s all very cliched & tired. A no-no indeed from me! Phi Phi is a lovely day out – beautiful scenery/beach some shopping/casual dining. Excellent. Never made it to “James Bond Island” despite many visits to Phuket. but understand it is quite lovely. Cannot comment on Novotel Panwa as I prefer the Northwest of the Island. Great spot. Hope this helps.
