Rooms: Each bungalow has it's own private lap pool, spa bath indoor and outdoor shower and a huge hanging space in the wardrobe. Plenty of space to hide your luggage. Each night there is... More

This is a very small and exclusive hideaway resort about 45 minutes North of Phuket Airport Each of the 14 villas is exactly the same and well appointed. What makes this place the 'High end total relaxation in luxury' is the GM, the staff , the Head Chef (who's cooking is world class) and the total isolation of this resort... More

As most travellers do we decided on the destination first and the hotel second. Thailand in January seemed like a good idea. The pros we thought to ourselves inexpensive and good weather. Then after a lot of research on hotels I found on the internet the Wanakarn. It looked so nice but yet for Thailand it is really expensive. So... More

We are traveling a lot and see many hotel. The Wanakarn is one of the best. The villas are very comfortable and intimate. You can use your private pool without anybody seeing you. ;-) The service is great and everybody is friendly but the best thing by far is the kitchen. I have seldom eaten so delicious! Try the Prawn... More

We were lucky enough to stay 3 nights here and can hands down say this is the best resort/hotel we have ever stayed at. We knew we were in for a treat when picked up in a Mercedes at phuket airport. The villas were incredible, great bath, rain showers, fruit bowls, complimentary fruit, wine, chocolates at bedtime. Breakfasts with champagne... More

Nothing but the perfect place for our needs, which were: finding tranquility in pleasant and relaxed surroundings with good service. We found all of it and more. At first you need to get used to the set-up, but once Frode, the GM, explains that the resort has been built around the existing trees, you start appreciating matters. All guests get... More

After a cold and hard winter i Scandinavia, we experenced Warnakars Beach Resort as the perfect pradise. This is an excellent place to hide away. A week in pradise with great food and eager and helpful hotel staff made our holiday perfect.

We knew it was something special when the S-class mercedes arrived to collect us from the disappointing Sarojin for the 25mins drive here.. Thank goodness my wife chose this as our last stop. If we had finished with the Sarojin then we would have been very sad... Instead we were treated to the wonderful Wanakarn. It is in another league... More

Before heading to Thailand, we researched a lot of great hotels to stay in. We decided to book The Wanakarn Beach Resort (have a look at the Relais et Chateau Hotels) for 6 nights which was definitely the best decision we might have made.
