In addition to the perfect service and food, this place offers the climates and natural attractions of Phuket without the crazy crowds and the tackiness. It seems that few Americans have discovered this place, it is their loss. Highly recommended.

To call this place a "resort" may give an impression contrary to the remote and tranquil personalised experience that awaits. This is a quiet, sleepy, small collection of exceptional pool villas in a remote riverside/coastal setting. The attention to detail in the amenities and facilities of this resort are exceptional. You would be hard pushed to find better thought out... More

I have stayed in some very fancy hotels, but the service at wanakarn is exceptional. Each member of staff are extremely attentive, nothing is to much trouble, you are not expected to lift a finger.

If you are traveling to a beach resort in Thailand, I can't imagine a better experience than the Wanakarn. We stayed 3 nights, and could have done more. Our visit began with a pickup from the airport in the Wanakarn's Mercedes, with a refreshing juice drink and cool towels to make the drive to Wanakarn as stress free as possible.... More

“Rooms nearest the pool and the beach are likely to have less privacy. Ask for the rooms one back from the rooms located at the pool such as 1106 and 1107.”

“There isn't a dud villa. All fifteen are private, secluded and well-appointed.”
  • Fresh fruit in the room everyday. Beautifully presented
  • Minibar was reasonably priced
  • (Almost prive) beach... across the river from the hotel.
