Tenta Nakara was our second stop while visiting Thailand. We arrived there from Bangkok and departed to Phuket following our stay. After visiting all three locations, Tenta Nakara was BY FAR our favorite and we found ourselves wanting to go back even once in Phuket. The seclusion and beauty of the resort is complemented by the friendly/helpful staff, the great... More

transportation from ao por pier to the hotel and vice versa costs 1200 baht (=28-30 euro) fairly expensive! and from phuket intl. airport to ao por pier costs an additional amount of 600 baht. During our stay (2 nights during march 2014) the sea was rough and windy to swim and sometimes dirty due to the currents. The staff was... More

Tenta Nakara is perfect for a chill out holiday.....thatched roof tents on stilts (to stop those snakes entering....and there are snakes, we saw some!), no electricity or hot running water. Yet this 3 day stopover was the best part of our Phuket holiday. The kids loved walking from the restaurant at night with the oil lantern, trying to spot the... More

This is the first place we stayed at in Thailand. It was a wonderful place to relax and escape from city life. Stunning secluded beach to relax. Staff were very friendly and food was great. This is not the place if you are looking to party, but you would be mistaken to give it a miss. A must place to... More

We loved it at Tenta Nakara! So beautiful and peaceful! Our 'tented accomodation' was fabulous! We slept every night with just the mosquito guards feeling the breeze blow over us and listening to the sounds of nature! We awoke to the birds singing and a beautiful view the minute we opened our eyes! No electricity meant no hair dryers &... More

and you long for some peace and quiet, this is where you want to be. Unplug from the trappings of civilization, if you dare. Stare out into the bay and the limestone formations. Watch the sunrise from your tent. Listen to the waves and the cicadas (or crickets?) as you fall asleep. All worries melt away. Tent B13 was perfect,... More

As they say Tenta Nakara is not for everyone, but if you are looking for a secluded, back-to-nature kind of a holiday, this is the place to be. There is no electricity in the tent-bungalow-rooms (it is provided by a generator in the restaurant area only from 5 to 10 pm), no AC either and the running water is not... More

Stayed here for only two nights, but loved it! You have to know what you're getting into - no air conditioning and no heated showers. We didn't mind those things - but we didn't particular like the only restaurant's dinner options. Ended up walking 40 mins to the other side of the island to eat at the Naka Resort for... More

We did not stay at this resort, however we visited for dinner as we were sailing in the area. The restaurant was excellent. Lovely food and great service and in fact looking back they offered great value for money too. The overall vibe of the place is wonderful and I would love to go back to stay in the eco... More
