I needed to relocate when my plans in Koh Samui fell through. Another experienced diver recommend I try Wattana Resort for a cheap place to stay. I looked it up and the first price quoted was 330 Baht or $10 US. It came to a little more with taxes and fees--400 Baht, plus there was a 3% fee for using... More

The rooms are quite small. No more than 2 people could fit comfortably. They are clean though and all you need I think. They also have a nice wooden design and carvings. The view to the beach was nice but I don't think it's the best for swimming and laying out on. The staff are very friendly and helped right... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Wattana during the full moon party. We paid 400B/night for the small classic chalet with a view of the beach. The chalet was clean although the bathroom does need a refit but it was fine for us. Chakolum Bay is beautiful we enjoyed lazing in the shallow waters amongst the long tail boats. It's... More

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...

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
