No this is not Paradise. It is heaven itself. The staff are angels. beside one comment in the list which is to be completely neglected every single word in the reviews is true. Peace, complete relaxation, a top knotch kitchen with a chef who is a true magician. And an ever present general manager Frode, caring, interested. This is not... More

Having read all the reviews we really wondered if such a resort exists ???? YES IT EXISTS and is called Wanakarn Beach Resort and Spa !!!!!!!!!! The arrival limousine drive was relaxing with cool drinks and towels, great after a long flight. Reception greeted us as if we had been away for a few hours, really friendly and helpful, in... More

There are already a lot of long reviews about how wonderful this place it. The mood is serene and relaxing. There are many places to spend the day, at your own pool, the main pool, the river or the ocean. Every detail is thought out, every spot is comfortable and all the staff are friendly. The rooms are outstanding; every... More

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

Frode the Wanakarn’s Norwegian GM is a star, we contacted him about bringing forward our arrival date due to an issue with our current accommodation,... More

My family and & I spent Christmas at the Wanakarn after a long and exhausting year. If you want peace & quiet and complete relaxation - look no further. The property is literally in the middle of nowhere and the nearest 'shanty town' is around 8km's away. Upon arrival you are given your own bicycle to use within the grounds... More

Don't go, if you do not cherish isolation. Go, if you really want to get away from it all, but be pampered all the same. On first visual impressions, this place may not necessarily win over the discerning traveler. It is not styled to the extreme. In fact, upon arrival and before getting a chance to speak with the very... More

It is not often that reality exceeds what you are shown on colour pictures - but in Wanakarn this is the case! From the moment we were picked up in the latest airconditioned Mercedes limousine at the airport in late December up to our departure in January, my wife and me felt in a truly different world and the resorts...

This was a very quiet Hotel, which due to the time we went, at the beginning of the season, was particularly quiet. What I really liked here was that you were made to feel like a part of a large family. The staff were all from the locality, and although not necessarily the best trained in Thailand, they more than... More

The luxury pool villa is very stylish and private - what I love most is the spacious, well-designed bathroom. It's an ideal place to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. The only thing I don't like is the beach - it's not beautiful but not bad.
