A stay at Wattana Resort is really like a stay in paradise, the resort is just so beautiful and quiet. Located at the far end of Chaloklum beach it's the last resort on the beach and consists of bungalows spread out nicely for privacy amidst a tropical garden with lots of coconut palms. It's right by the beach, so even the cheaper bungalows (which are of course the furthest from the beach) are just a few steps from the ocean and have sea view. The beach consists of fine white sand, but is rather small when the tide is high. So maybe there are nicer beaches on the island, but if you're looking for a laid back, quiet, traditional bungalow resort and beautiful nature at a great price I think Wattana is the place.
I had a basic wooden bungalow with fan and even though the bathroom wasn't too great I absolutely loved my bungalow because it was just your picture perfect traditional Koh Phangan bungalow under palmtrees and with a hammock on the veranda. The fan worked against the heat, the mosquito net against the mosquitos, the bed was comfortable and the WIFI worked well, too. Another plus was the really nice, friendly and helpfull staff as well as the really good and reasonably priced restaurant right by the beach.
I looked at some other resorts in the area and I really think Wattana Resort is one of the best options at the best value. I also liked that it's just a 10-15 min walk to Chaloklum village, where you have convenient infrastructure like restaurants, ATMs, a 7Eleven and a pharmacy.
