The scenic 30 minute speedboat journey from Koh Samui to Koh Phangan is a good sign you are being whisked away somewhere special as you cruise past steep jungle covered mountains and deserted bays with huge smooth boulders which frame idyllic beaches. Arriving at Thong Nai Pan Noi Bay take your shoes off and walk straight up the powder white sands of one of Thailand’s best beaches to check into your pool suite or villa at one of Asia’s ultimate hideaways.
Anantara Rasananda could easily sell itself purely on its stunning location, wonderfully set between a lush tropical mountain and the warm turquoise sea. A real gem and a truly stylish addition to Thailand's sophisticated hotel scene, Rasananda boasts 64 villas and suites, ranging from the beautiful Garden and Lagoon Pool Suites to the ultimate Ocean Pool Villa. No matter which option you choose, you are never more than a few steps from the sea.
Natural, understated and cool chic is a signature of Anantara Rasananda's villas and suites which combine the finest local materials with modern technology and luxuries creating beautiful sanctuaries reflecting contemporary Thai style. All come with their very own private pools and spacious indoor and outdoor living areas.
Relax and be pampered in the Signature Spa which is superbly designed and moulded into the hillside, set amongst the large smooth boulders which are a feature of Koh Phangan’s idyllic coastline. Indulging yourself here with a wide range of treatments is a real treat for the senses!
Choose between dining on the beach at the Bistro or enjoy a private dining experience in your own villa or on the beach. Connoisseurs should head to the lounge to relax and enjoy the wide selection of excellent wine and champagne or for some local life choose from a great selection of small, local restaurants, bars and cafes.
Koh Phangan is big and beautiful and remains a relatively undiscovered island which offers the charm and beauty of the Thailand you imagine. As well as the breath taking shoreline (the island is perfect for beach hopping), Koh Phangan is also rich in flora and fauna and is said to have been one of King Rama V's favourite forest parks so activities such as hiking, cycling, snorkelling, diving and elephant trekking are a great way to discover this alluring destination, while Rasananda gives you all the luxury you could desire without compromising the laid back Thai island vibe Phangan is famous for. A perfect combination!
