“Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

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.

This place is excellent, stayed here for 3 weeks in December and January. I couldn't have asked for a more relaxed place to stay at, I'll be back in July. The family who own place are real sweet, the location is tops, the food is quality, the bungalows rock, in fact the whole place rocked, only wish I was still there.

Stay at this resort at big house, sea in front view, less than 20 meters. Nice & charming manager, good room with 2 double bed, quiet place, healthy breakfast. Good choice for vacation in Koh Phangan.

We stayed at Wattana for 4 nights in January. It was the perfect little place with its own secluded beach. The bungalows were fairly basic but still very comfortable. The staff was very attentive and welcoming. They also offered taxi service, laundry service, motorbike rental, WiFi and a restaurant all on the premises which was nice because the resort itself is a bit out of the way.
The only downside was there was litter in the sea in the mornings when the tide was high. Also, careful of the step down into the bathroom - it can be slippery when wet. Overall, a great little place for a quiet, relaxing vacation.

We stayed at Wattana Resort for 6 nights in August 2011. Loved the quietness, the super-friendly family who runs the resort and our bungalow. Bungalow was clean, felt new and had a great view. Plus there was some space between bungalows. A big positive was the super comfortable bed that we had. Beach is definitely not the nicest on the island (but it's quiet!), food was ok, but these things are minor in comparison to all the good stuff. Will definitely go back to Wattana.

We stayed there 9 days at the end of Feb. 2011 - we tried all the 3 types of bungalows (800-2000TB) and all where good. It is good place form the kids, food is pretty OK but the best is the silence and relaxed environment, no bars or karaoke no music in the restaurant and no sound from the mountain roads.
No Pool but a great pool next door (which can be used)
Good free Wi-Fi
easy access to the larger beaches and waterfalls which should not be missed
overall very pleasant, low key and cheap :-)
