Stayed for a week in March - the place got us so relaxed that it took a month to get our act together and write this review. Wanakarn is somewhere you go for total, and I mean TOTAL relaxation. It is very small, intimate, isolated and utterly luxurious ... a few highlights: Good sized villas, all with private pools. The...

We were greeted at the airport by the driver of the hotel van - we climbed into a cool van, with cold water and a snack awaiting us. As we drove off I realized my seat was massaging my back - so nice after the closed quarters of flying. They also had wifi set up which helped me send a...

We had a very pleasant stay at Wanakarn. Nice villas, a small but good fitness room, a nice tennis court and delicious food. Pan and the other crew members were very helpful and friendly.

2017年春节我们在这里度过7个晚上的假期。这是我们2年内第四次来这里了。非常安静的小型奢华酒店。酒店的设施不适合儿童。这也是我们喜欢这里的原因之一。安静是最大的特色,即使春节,也不安排什么大型的晚会活动。每周有3天左右的现场萨克斯演奏,低调地很适合这里的安静。 My husband and me spend 7 nights there for 2017 Chinese Spring Festival Holiday. It was our 4th time visit in past 2 years. Every time 7-9 nights. Wanakarn is our first choice for our vacation in Thailand. (Not one of...) 1. If you enjoy a QUIET place, Wanakarn is a great choice.
