Stayed at the Pakarang for a week in a pretty basic hut that had a bedroom, a small bathroom with flushing toilet and a nice little balcony. But it had the most gorgeous view of the beach - but it got pretty windy at night and we could hear the waves crashing - rather lovely, if noisy! The food in... More

We stayed at Ko Wai Pakarang resort coming on a day trip called "4 islands snorkling trip" which we booked for 700 baht, but we decided in advance that we would stay overnight in Ko Wai, which was the last island on the tour. The snorkling trip was great, but using it to go to Ko Wai actually was a... More

This resort was more than adequate for the canny traveller wanting to spend a reasonable amount for a tropical holiday who also wants to get away from the bigger more developed islands. Koh Wai can be reached by a slow boat from Laem Ngop pier in Trat Province, Thailand. It is a tiny island with limited tourist infrastructure and no... More

We stayed at Pakarang for six nights. We spent the first four nights in a standard wooden fan bungalow on the quiet beach. (Note that Pakarang has two beaches. The main beach is closest to the restaurant and is packed with day trippers every afternoon. The other beach behind Reception is smaller, but quieter - very few day trippers stray... More

Koh Wai is a tiny island so there isn't much to do there but to enjoy some great snorkelling. I used Koh Wai as a one night stop-over between Koh Mak and Koh Chang. To me, this was enough as the beach wasn't powdery and, especially annoying, there was a large number of day trippers interrupting the peace and tranquility.... More

We stayed at Koh Wai Pakarang for six nights after several weeks of hard traveling through Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia. It was exactly the tropical island paradise escape we needed. In fact my wife used it to recover from a bout of food poisoning. We stayed in four different rooms. The best were the wooden bungalows a bit up the... More

Koh Wai is a sweet little island with absolutely nothing to do except paddle in the beautifully clear water and snorkel on the corals just off the beaches, which is no bad thing! We stayed at Pakarang because it's the only accommodation on the island that has air con and we were a bit smelly and hot after 3 days... More

The beach as well as the snorkeling options in front of the bungalow/beach are great. Food at the restaurant was also very very nice. The resort is very quiet and you can relax easily. But for more or less one hour a day 2 to 4 ships land at the pier with heaps of tourists, which is a little bit... More

The staff is very friendly and the bungalows are clean, but old. The resort are clean also outside the bungalows. Earlier we... More
