Hotel Overview


On the sleepy Tong Nai Pan Noi beach, on Koh Phangan’s north-eastern coastline.

Rooms at Anantara Rasananda

Contemporary beach chic is the theme in the 64 plush villas and suites at Anantara – fanned out along the sand, each with their own personal plunge pool and just steps from the sea. The interiors incorporate natural materials, stylishly designed and displayed, and further enhancing the feeling of indoor/outdoor living that reigns at Anantara, where the picturesque surrounds are the star of the show.

Food and Facilities

Traditional Thai cookery techniques get a modern Michelin-influenced makeover with delicious results at the Anantara’s Bistro @ The Beach, with uninterrupted views of the bay to boot. For a more intimate meal, opt for in-room dining or – our favourite – a romantic dinner for two on the beach, with not another soul around. A soothing retreat built into the cliff face, the spa is practically a destination within itself, with signature treatments and couples therapies that are the perfect prescription for winding down.

Activities at Anantara Rasananda

Have a picnic packed up for you and take the short boat ride around to Bottle Bay, a stunning beachfront, lapped by Thailand’s trademark turquoise-green waters or if you’re keen to explore the south of the island’s infamous party scene, the hotel offers a luxury full moon experience, dropping you off in a champagne-stocked private boat and providing a guide to show you around.
