Anantara Rasananda Koh Phangan Villas 

Dive into quietness

A chilled-out tropical paradise with pool suites and villas and a relaxed ‘no shoes’ vibe.

Blending authentic and modern design, this hotel epitomises relaxed Thai chic. Revelling in its enchanting setting on the shores of beautiful Thong Nai Pan Noi Beach, it evokes a peaceful atmosphere, surrounded by a jungle-clad mountain landscape and fronted by sparkling white sands. On the quiet north-east coast, you won’t find the nightlife and daylife as riotous here as in the more infamous parts of the island. It’s all about the tranquillity here with just a sprinkling of quiet beachfront outlets and a small characterful village behind the resort.

Why we love Anantara Rasananda Koh Phangan Villas

  • There are just 64 secluded pool suites and villas in verdant gardens leading down to one of Koh Phangan’s best beaches

  • For a stylish dinner, you can feast on sushi and grilled lobster at the first and only teppanyaki restaurant on Koh Phangan

  • There are some delightful ways to round off the day, from a sunset cruise for two to twilight film screenings on the beach

  • If you can tear yourself away from the beachside infinity pool, the treatment rooms at the tranquil spa have sea views too
