LOCATION
While well known around the globe for its world famous festivities, Phangan Island or Koh Phangan actually has isolated hideaways which bring the gift of tranquility to discerning travelers. Rasananda is an oasis of 44 villas and suites sprawled over 200 meters of sea-view frontage along the pristine white sands of Tong Nai Pan Noi beach, northeast of Phangan island, just 30 minutes away by private speedboat from Samui.

Aside from the most exclusive and secluded Ton Nai Pan Noi beach, other shores abound on the island which make for exciting beach hopping. There is the well known Haad Rin beach, which is most famous for the monthly "Full Moon Party"; Chaloklum bay by the fishing village of Ban Chaloklum; the popular Haad Kuat or "bottle beach"; and the coral reef beaches of Mae Haad. Most beaches around Phangan are suitable for swimming and relaxation and reachable by road and sea.

In addition to the breathtaking shoreline, the island is rich in waterfalls as well as natural flora and fauna, and is said to have been one of King Rama V's favorite forest parks.

There are highly interesting spots for sightseeing as well, such as the historical Wat Kow Tham Temple, the 400 year old Wat Nai, and the Chinese inspired Kuan Yin Shrine. Check with your resort host for recommended itineraries and activities.
