Anantara Rasananda is the best hotel in Koh Phangan. It offers complete beachfront and stylish luxury villas. The resort is managed by the Anantara group to bring a high level of customer service into the equation. These two factors mean Rasananda has hundreds of rave reviews.
There are a selection of villas to choose from. However, they all offer private plunge pools, stylish design and great facilities. All villas have LCD flatscreen TVs, DVD players, iPod docking systems and expresso machines. Unlike Santhiya and Panviman all this luxury is just a stone's throw from one of Thailand's best beaches.
Communal facilites at Anantara Rasananda include a pool with a swim up bar, two restaurants, a champagne bar, a wine cellar, a fitness room and a spa. The latest edition to the facilities of Anantara Rasananda is a 37-foot ocean cruiser available for transfers and excursions. Wifi is available throughout the resort and all prices include breakfast.
And of course when you get bored of being pampered at the resort it is just a minute's walk to all the bars and restaurants in Thong Nai Pan Noi village.
While Rasananda offers yoga sessions it seems determined to deter people with children - only 1 child is allowed per villa; there is no child's menu, baby cots or children's facilities. Children are charged a compulsory breakfast that costs 1,500 Thai Baht per day.
Rasananda has come to dominate the beachfront. They expanded in 2012 and now have over 80 villas to rent. Those not staying at Rasananda can feel slightly pushed off the beach. Not to worry the beach is free for all to use.
As with all major resorts in Thailand, the pricing system at Rasananda is complex and fluid. This means the prices quoted on the left are far from 'fixed'.
