This is our second 14 day stay in wanakarn. Actually we are at the resort the moment I write this comment. Indeed there are changes. There is a new manager who we met and spoke twice already. Someone who, as the former GM did, honestly tries to keep wanakarn as it is being described in all the other positive comments...

Just returned from our 4th stay at this resort. I have not posted reviews based on our previous stays, largely for selfish reasons, as, until this visit, our experiences at Wanakarn have been nothing short of exceptional, and I really wanted this place to remain as undiscovered as possible. Our enjoyment of our three previous visits had been largely due...

In addition to the perfect service and food, this place offers the climates and natural attractions of Phuket without the crazy crowds and the tackiness. It seems that few Americans have discovered this place, it is their loss. Highly recommended.

To call this place a "resort" may give an impression contrary to the remote and tranquil personalised experience that awaits. This is a quiet, sleepy, small collection of exceptional pool villas in a remote riverside/coastal setting. The attention to detail in the amenities and facilities of this resort are exceptional. You would be hard pushed to find better thought out...
