Avasara Residence at Panacea Retreat - Spectacular sight

Bophut Experience

The Locale

Located high in the lush green hills above Koh Samui’s popular resort of Bophut and charming Fisherman’s Village, Panacea Retreat is just a 15-minute drive from the island’s international airport and 10-15 minutes away from the white sandy beaches of Bophut, Big Buddha and the island’s main tourist centre, Chaweng.

All five Panacea Retreat villas have spectacular views over Samui’s north-east coastline and the Gulf of Thailand, to mystical islands such as Koh Phangan, popularly known as ‘Full Moon Island’, as well as Samui’s striking interior with its jungle-clad hills and dramatic waterfalls.

Circumnavigating Koh Samui by car takes just over an hour, so nothing is very far away. The main ferry port of Nathon, with connections to the Thai mainland, is around 30 minutes’ drive and the key jumping off point for boat excursions to offshore islands is a mere 10 minutes away at Big Buddha.

Panacea Retreat is a peaceful sanctuary far above the hustle and bustle of Koh Samui’s coastal resorts, and always ready to welcome you back.

Things to Do

Although Koh Samui is renowned for its palm-fringed beaches and crystal blue seas, the island has much more to offer besides. Families on holiday with toddlers or teenagers, groups of friends looking for shared fun and adventures, or nightbirds seeking out the island’s best beach clubs, will all find plenty to keep them amused here. Just let your villa manager know what you’re looking for and he or she can make all the necessary arrangements.

In the meantime, here are some of our favourite Samui activities to give you a taste of what’s in store:

    Dear Panacea, This was the stay of our dreams. Anything that topped the stunning views and the beautiful villa was the incomparable stuff. Everyone was so kind and welcoming, we truly felt that was a home away from home. We hope to be back soon, anyone who stays here is lucky.

    Just a personal thank you Bee, Beam, Pokki, Yut and Cebar for making our holiday and Sarah’s birthday celebrations unforgettable. The service you have provided from day 1 has been exceptional - the food, the cleanliness, the friendliness has been amazing and personal. The children have all loved you being here and especially when Noei and Beam babysat.
