About Wanakarn Beach Resort & Spa
Located on the sandy shores of Thai Mueang Beach, Wanakarn Beach Resort & Spa is a hidden gem in the southern province of Phang Nga just 40 minutes’ drive from Phuket International Airport. Peace and tranquillity shroud the property’s 15 acres of forest, beach and waterways, so you can kick back and relax wherever you see fit, be it alongside the Andaman’s glistening coastline, next to the main infinity pool, overlooking the river or beside your very own private pool.
Each of the 14 Pool Villas adhere to luxury contemporary living with an oversized King bed, rainforest shower, Espresso machine and state of the art electronics, while the Grand Ocean Villa has two master suites, an infinity swimming pool, Jacuzzi and private dining terrace.
If all this relaxation and tranquillity leaves you a tad restless, why not hop on one of the resort’s complimentary mountain bikes and explore your exotic surrounds; a nearby Buddhist temple, weekend market, Thai Muang Village or turtle sanctuary – Ken, the sport’s specialist, is more than willing to advise on the best places to visit or perhaps he’ll come along for the ride.
On site facilities include a main infinity pool with Jacuzzi, tennis court, fitness centre and Sukko Spa. There is also an 18 hole professional golf course just minutes from the resort, as well as horse riding and scuba diving.
