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.

This place has it all. If you'r looking for a unspoiled and genuine place to stay, this is it. The resort area is pure luxury with excellent food. (Jib, the chef, makes great fushion food) If you walk the beach north for 15 minutes you will find a genuine Thai beach bar/restaurant that serves great food! Spend the afternoon there... More

Warakarn is a hidden gem with 15 bungalow villas. The hotel is set on a gorgeous river front opening onto a beautiful isolated stretch of beach. 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
