Spending your holiday at a villa in Koh Samui is an exotic experience, but we invite you to double the fond memories you take home, by discovering what it's like to live in a magnificent heritage style Thai house of epic proportions, constructed entirely of solid teak.
All the furnishings fittings and facilities incorporated in Tassana Pra are of the highest international standard, and are right up to date, providing guests with a perfect blend of old and new, in a one of a kind experience.
Tassana Pra has long held the crown as Koh Samui's most enchanting private villa. Sitting proudly on a lush mountainside overlooking the island's landmark Golden Buddha statue, this 4-bedroom tropical, teakwood residence catches constant, cooling sea breezes and boasts sweeping views over the island's stunning north coast beaches.
As the only traditional Thai style villa of its class on Koh Samui, Tassana Pra's elegant, timeless design blends Asian authenticity with modern comforts in a truly exceptional tropical retreat. The beautiful landscaped grounds feature a freeform, infinity swimming pool and a shaded garden lily pond overlooked by a traditional wooden reading ‘sala’: the ultimate peaceful escape.
Comfortably accommodating up to 8 people, Tassana Pra is available for short and medium term rental, whenever the owners are not in residence.
The villa's finely appointed rooms sit in a wide, two-storey building surrounded by mature trees and carp-filled lily ponds. The spacious central living and dining space opens onto a generous, covered ocean view terrace with wide doors that fold open front and back to catch the tropical breezes.
Wood paneled walls and polished floors lend an air of heritage elegance, while carefully placed cushioned wooden furniture offers an appealing choice of spaces to relax and enjoy the breathtaking views.
The upper level accommodation features three attractively furnished bedrooms that sit to the left and right of the lounge; two doubles and one twin, all with en-suite bathrooms. There's also a study and guests' kitchen on this floor and stairs lead down to the fourth double guest bedroom and main kitchen, which is fronted by a covered verandah that opens onto the stone pool terrace and ocean view lawn.
The freeform, infinity-edged swimming pool flows towards the dramatic sea views with comfortable loungers poised for relaxed sun worship and all weather umbrellas to open for shaded repose. The garden is bordered with tropical plants, their colours and scents adding to the natural charm of the setting.
Tassana Pra, means "Buddha view", an apt reflection of the villa's uninterrupted vistas, which take in the famous Big Buddha statue. The serene, authentic feel comes from the fact that the property was lovingly constructed around a traditional Thai wooden house imported from Ayutthaya, the ancient Thai capital. Mature and re-conditioned teak throughout creates a warm and homely, yet luxurious place to escape the stresses of the modern world.
