Lovely huts and beautiful beach. Location wasn't ideal as it was about 40 minutes from Haad Rin (Full moon party). Also quite expensive, so not ideal for backpackers on a tight budget. Would recommend the cheaper dorms in the town for young, backpacking travellers.

We stayed in a beach fronted bungalow. It is all really basic but ok for the price. However we thought the bathroom could be better: the water tab of the basin was not stable and moving whenever we opened and closed it; the mirror above the water basin had not been cleaned for a long time; in the shower there...

PROS- really quiet, good food at reasonahle prices, served very quickly wih a smile, good room service, changed mattress... More

We stayed for just a few nights in this serene and beautiful location. The family that runs it are lovely...truly helpful and friendly, and the food was excellent and well priced. And while the villas are quiet and comfortable on a beautiful beach, the bathrooms are in need of some serious renovations. The unfortunate part is that they are priced... More

I was very interested in the past two reviews, I have nothing but praise for Wattana, the food is excellent, the place is tranquil, the family that own it are friendly and helpful, the bungalows are clean and comfortable. I notice that both of these reviews are by people living in the USA. I suggest to them for their next... More

The first impression of this place was a ramshackle office with untidy junk clustered around it. This is actually the back of the reception area, but it's what you see when you arrive over land. The bungalows are scattered around, and there's minimal landscaping. It's at the Western end of Cholaklum bay. For those seeking solitude and complete peace, and... More

We just returned from this place. The rooms were small, not very clean but quiet. Bathrooms were disgusting but wasn't expecting more for the price. But.... We rented a motorbike from them on our first day (only way to get around the island). Our big mistake was giving up our passport as a "deposit" but they insisted. When we returned... More

We booked in here for four nights for the Full Moon Party. I was feeling a bit dubious when the taxi dropped me off at the top of a dirt track insisting the resort was 'down there', but once I was down and turned the corner I did indeed find it and had nothing to worry about. We stayed in... More

I spent there 4 nights, in one word: EXCELLENT for quiet and peaceful vacation. The bungalow (we took a modern one, for 1200 tbh) was very clean and comfy. Food is great, the hospitality of the owner/family is typical Thai, always with a smile. In the evening, you can hardly hear a single noise! Lovely resort, highly recommendable!
