Like your own private hotel, Praana Residence is one of Koh Samui’s finest private luxury retreats – an extravagant 6-bedroom villa with 360-degree panoramic sea views from the verdant Bophut Hills.

Praana, which means ‘vital force’, is the jewel in the crown of Panacea Retreat, an exclusive gated community of five contemporary Thai-style private villas on the island’s popular north-east coast.

Through the grand entrance, you’re greeted by Buddhist statues and water features lining a stone walkway to embark on your discovery of this extraordinary place. From the villa apex, the spectacular view over infinity pools to the Gulf of Thailand and offshore islands is simply mesmerising.  

Your main living and dining pavilion is vast yet inviting – with a soaring cathedral ceiling hung with crystal chandeliers, sumptuous lounge, elegant dining table and show kitchen. Wrap-around glass doors open onto a terrace and garden for socialising and special events, such as weddings.     

Six outstanding double bedrooms overlook the spectacular location from every aspect.  Three master suites have their own private pavilions; and in some cases, their own private garden with a pool and outdoor bathtub.

This remarkable villa is all about luxury and design, with the ambience of extreme comfort from warm woods and natural fibres, tasteful wooden and rattan furniture, richly colourful fabrics and Thai artworks.  

Praana Residence is also a unique pleasure palace without parallel in Samui – with one entire floor dedicated to your pleasures, health and fitness. Your own private nightclub with karaoke, wine cellar, 10-seater private cinema with Apple TV and over 1,000 movies, and billiards and gaming room share this hedonistic space with a massage and sauna room, fully-equipped gym and nursery wonderland for the youngsters. 

You also have your own floodlit tennis court and two infinity pools – and if you’re feeling extremely energetic, you can even try your hand at Muay Thai boxing in an open-air ring!

In this exclusive party paradise within 15 minutes of the island’s delightful airport, a dedicated staff of seven looks after all your wishes and whims, organising everything and anything to make your stay relaxed and enjoyable – from delicious cuisine served anywhere you like around the villa, including catering for special dietary requests and children’s meals, to personal health and fitness training, excursions and all that beautiful Samui has to offer. 

Quite simply, Praana Residence is the ultimate villa for large family gatherings, groups of friends and special occasions or events. The sheer size and space make it perfect for great occasions – and impressive amenities and services add up to the finest luxury experience in Samui.

    Venue for Yoga, Tennis and Muay Thai lessons
    Superb entertainment facilities
    Plenty to keep kids amused
    Spectacular ocean and island views
    In-house spa

Location

Located up in the lush green hills above Samui’s popular resort of Bophut and Fisherman’s Village, Praana Residence is just a 15 minute drive from Samui’s international airport and 10-15 minutes’ to gorgeous sandy beaches in Bophut, Big Buddha and the island’s main tourist centre, Chaweng.

Thanks to its elevation, the villa overlooks spectacular views of the north-east coastline and the Gulf of Siam, to offshore islands such as Koh Phangan, popularly known as ‘Full Moon Island’, as well as of the island’s striking mountainous interior with its coconut palm clad slopes 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 which connects to Thai mainland is around 30 minutes’ drive and the key jumping off point for boat trips and excursions to discover offshore islands is a mere 10 minutes away at Big Buddha.

Highly accessible and convenient, Praana Residence is always a peaceful sanctuary away from all the noise and activity, waiting to welcome you back.  

Things to do

Although Koh Samui is renowned for its pristine natural beauty, as a sleepy paradise of palm fringed sandy beaches and crystal blue seas, the island has much to offer to the visitor of all ages. Whether on a family holiday with little ones or teenagers, a group of friends looking for shared experiences, or those seeking the action of the island’s beach clubs and nightlife, Samui has something for you.

Your villa manager will guide you through the different options and make all the necessary arrangements for you to enjoy your chosen pursuits. Here are some suggestions: 

  • 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.
