Panacea Retreat - Atulya Residence

The villa you chose is no longer available for rental from us but we have a portfolio of Elite Havens in various locations around South East Asia for you to choose from. Alternatively feel free to send us an enquiry and it'll be our pleasure to help you find the perfect villa for your next holiday.

Sleeps 10 Adults

Atulya means ‘unrivaled’ in ancient Sanskrit and that’s exactly what it is. Part of the exclusive Panacea Retreat collection of five luxury villas in a magnificent gated community in Koh Samui’s luxuriant Bophut Hills, this splendid private villa defines tropical elegance in every sense.

Magnificent views from every aspect providing you with a glorious panorama from sunrise to sunset.

In a manicured garden gently following the contours of the hillside, its striking architectural design is a contemporary take on Thai-style, and exceptional furnishings while natural materials create a sophisticated, supremely comfortable luxury escape.

Your arrival into the main living pavilion will stop you in your tracks, extending virtually the entire length of the villa and opening onto a breathtaking terrace with a grandstand panoramic view over an inviting infinity pool to the Gulf of Thailand and distant offshore islands.  

The social epicenter of the villa, with soaring, cathedral ceiling above a stylish and comfortable lounge, dining area and show kitchen, is the place for breakfast and getting together as the day closes in and cocktail time calls.

Five splendid ensuite double-bedrooms overlook the pool and garden level with king-size beds and rain shower bathrooms, and terrazzo bathtubs open onto the pool from two master bedrooms. Warm woods and natural finishes and fabrics create an inviting, comfortable ambiance with tasteful furnishings and Thai-inspired accents. Flat-screen TVs and modern AV accessories make each room far more than a place to sleep.

The villa’s generous infinity pool and sun terrace is the focal point; welcoming you to a swim up bar with sunken stools, barbecue and Thai sala for al fresco dining and relaxing by day or night.

A sense of luxury and space pervades, making it a peaceful, private sanctuary for families, groups of friends and special celebrations.

Whether soaking up Samui’s famous sunsets from the terrace or sipping cocktails by the pool, this is a special place to enjoy one of Asia’s most beautiful islands.

Location

Located high in the lush green hills above Koh Samui’s popular resort of Bophut and charming Fisherman’s Village, Panacea Retreat is just a 15-minute drive from the island’s international airport and 10-15 minutes away from the white sandy beaches of Bophut, Big Buddha and the island’s main tourist centre, Chaweng.

All five Panacea Retreat villas have spectacular views over Samui’s north-east coastline and the Gulf of Thailand, to mystical islands such as Koh Phangan, popularly known as ‘Full Moon Island’, as well as Samui’s striking interior with its jungle-clad hills and dramatic waterfalls.

Circumnavigating Koh Samui by car takes just over an hour, so nothing is very far away.  The main ferry port of Nathon, with connections to the Thai mainland, is around 30 minutes’ drive and the key jumping off point for boat excursions to offshore islands is a mere 10 minutes away at Big Buddha.

Panacea Retreat is a peaceful sanctuary far above the hustle and bustle of Koh Samui’s coastal resorts, and always ready to welcome you back.

More information for Things to do

Although Koh Samui is renowned for its palm-fringed beaches and crystal blue seas, the island has much more to offer besides.  Families on holiday with toddlers or teenagers, groups of friends looking for shared fun and adventures, or nightbirds seeking out the island’s best beach clubs, will all find plenty to keep them amused here.  Just let your villa manager know what you’re looking for and he or she can make all the necessary arrangements.

In the meantime, here are some of our favourite Samui activities to give you a taste of what’s in store:

  • Shopping for chic island fashions, souvenirs and local arts and crafts in Chaweng – a seemingly endless strip of shops, boutiques and the island’s main shopping mall along Samui’s most famous beach. Stop for a refreshing local beer and Thai snacks at one of a myriad restaurants and bars.
  • The night market at Fisherman’s Village in Bophut is the scene of the island’s biggest night market. Every Friday evening and on certain holidays, literally hundreds of vendors set up shop to offer everything from Thai and international street food and snacks, to chic fashions, electronics and local souvenirs.  The atmosphere is buzzing and an absolute must-visit for locals and tourists alike.
  • Take a boat trip around the island and be amazed at how many beautiful beaches and coves you can count.  Book a trip on the Naga or the Baidee - two classic Turkish gullets which ply the seas around Samui, alternating between tours of island and trips to the famous Anthong National Marine Park a cluster of heavy jungled islands and the clearest of seas for snorkeling.  
  • Book a round of golf at Koh Samui’s championship golf course; Santiburi (18 holes with distracting ocean views).
  • Treat yourself to Sunday Brunch by the pool at the internationally famed Nikki Beach Club, or a close to home at Coast in the Centara Grand on Chaweng Beach.
  • There’s a kite surfing school on the beach at Nathon where you can rent a rig or learn how to do it.
  • Regular Thai boxing tournaments are staged at the largest stadium on the island, the Petch Buncha near Chaweng. These are not tourist demo fights; they are the real thing.
  • Samui has a number of spectacular waterfalls. We would recommend starting with the Namuang Falls. Take your bathing costume; there’s a very inviting pool at the base of the falls.
  • Have an adventure atop Khao Pom mountain on ATVs or the zipline, take a canopy walk through the rainforest, or just gaze out at the scenery below from the viewpoint.
  • Spend some time at Samui’s iconic Big Buddha. Visitors arriving by plane are greeted by the sight of the great Golden Buddha sitting there majestically as their aircraft swoops into land.  The island’s main tourist attraction occupies its own island connected by causeway, where a colourful collection of shops selling fashions and souvenirs, restaurants and nearby wats (temples) make it a must-see for visitors. 
  • Nature trails, elephant sanctuaries, a crocodile farm, tiger zoo and butterfly farm promise something to keep you amazed and entertained whether you’re young or just young at heart.

Start your day with a hearty complimentary breakfast of local and international favourites. For a lazy lunch by the pool, the central kitchen can prepare Thai delicacies such as Phad Thai (Thai noodles), Satay, Yum Woon Sen (glass noodle salad) or Som Tam (green papaya salad), accompanied by a light coconut curry, or western dishes ranging from salads and pastas to pizzas and grills. Though prepared centrally, the meal is served hot and with style, within your villa, either in an alfresco setting or in air-conditioned comfort.

In the evenings, you may prefer a more formal Thai or western dinner served in your villa’s dining pavilion. Alternatively, breezy evenings demand a casual barbecue on the pool terrace, or a candlelit dinner beneath a starry sky, both of which can be arranged for you.

Grocery and beverage shopping is charged at market price (plus a 30% handling fee, 10% service charge and 7% VAT). Alternatively, a priced menu of various dishes is available. Praana Residence charges grocery bills at cost.
