At the crest of its own private hilltop in the flourishing Bophut Hills of north-eastern Koh Samui, just 20 minutes from the airport, Panacea Retreat is undoubtedly among the most prestigious private villa retreats in Southeast Asia.
Five contemporary, Thai-inspired villas with sweeping panoramic views of the ocean, hills and outlying islands make up this exclusive gated community, serviced by in-house staff.
The crowning glory, Praana Residence, is the largest of the villas and stands tall at the summit of the hill. This palatial villa has six exquisitely furnished double-bedrooms and extensive outdoor spaces including two infinity pools and terraces with 360-degree views of the valley below.
Not to be outdone, the other four villas - Avasara and Atulya with five bedrooms, and Kalya and Purana with four bedrooms each, share a similar layout and design, with 20-metre infinity pools, extensive terraces, living and dining salas, and sensational ocean views.
Sumptuously furnished living and dining pavilions with soaring ‘cathedral’ ceilings and wraparound terraces are designed for sunset cocktails, elegant parties and dinners under starry skies.
Panacea is an exceptional venue for large events. Praana Residence with its magnificent hilltop lawn and breathtaking backdrop can cater for up to 60 guests while the other villas can host 40 guests each. Together, Panacea’s five neighbouring villas provide a total of 24 double bedrooms for residential parties that carry on into the wee hours of the morning, accommodating more than 50 guests.
If you can tear yourself away from the luxurious comforts of your villa, you’ll find some of Samui’s famous beaches, such as Bophut, Choeng Mon and Chaweng, only seven kilometres away. With trendy restaurants and bars, exciting night markets and beachfront nightlife at hand, there is never a dull moment at Samui.
