Panacea Retreat - Purana Residence

8 guests · 4 bedrooms · 5 baths
Take a break from the ordinary—and from the ordinary resort—at Purana Residence. This four-bedroom, fully staffed luxury Koh Samui vacation rental gives you the personal service and amenities of a resort in a beautifully appointed private villa. Though it’s in a spectacular setting overlooking rolling hills of tropical rainforest and the Gulf of Samui, it’s also close to some of Thailand’s best beaches and intriguing local sights, making it ideal for celebrating a special family occasion or taking a memorable getaway with friends.
During your stay, a dedicated housekeeper, butler and villa manager are on hand, and a chef can prepare both Thai specialties and Western favorites. Don’t forget to take advantage of the Thai cooking lesson and massage or yoga session. When you’re not partaking of the daily fresh-baked cookies and fresh-blended smoothies, grab a spot in the sun on a lounger or daybed on the terrace next to the infinity pool and let yourself relax. Flip on the outdoor sound system to set the mood as you serve drinks at the swim-up bar or heat up the barbecue in the outdoor kitchen. End the day with a delicious meal at the al-fresco dining area.
From the beautiful landscaping by renowned designer Bill Bensley outside to the specially commissioned pieces inside, every detail at Purana Residence has been considered. Not only does the spacious great room feature an airy shell of glass walls and a high peaked ceiling, it’s filled with hand-woven fabrics and traditional carved furniture for an atmosphere that’s bright and sunny yet refined. A sitting area at one end has plenty of sofas, chairs and benches to seat everyone, the formal dining area can comfortably accommodate up to eight guests, and the fully equipped kitchen at the other end of the great room has a breakfast bar.
The villa’s four bedrooms show the same thought and care; a king bed, en-suite bathroom with rain shower and a door to the balcony or terrace makes each one feel like a lavish honeymoon suite. Linger in the lounge chairs in the bedrooms or in the glassed-in, spa-worthy showers in the bathrooms—you’re on holiday after all.
If you can tear yourself away from the pool terrace at Purana Residence, there’s plenty to see and do in the area, from Fisherman’s Village, Big Buddha Temple and the piers at Nathon and Koh Samui to the Koh Samui Rainforest, the Nathon Night Food Market and Namuang Safari Park. Don’t miss the nearby beaches, from Bophut, 3 km away, and Chaweng and Maenam, about 8 km away, to Lamai, 17 km away, and Nathon, 20 km away. When it’s time to return home, plan on a 9 km drive from the villa to Samui Airport to make your connection.
