1-bedroom Villas in Bang Rak-Big Buddha, Koh Samui, Thailand

Easy access to the airport, plus ferry piers to neighbouring islands make Big Buddha beach a popular spot for people arriving and leaving Samui. Bang Rak village has its own appeal with hotels, bungalows, restaurants and bars catering to both short- and long-stay visitors. A three-kilometre stretch of road sees local village life blending with tourist amenities, which gives the area its own special character. The temple at Wat Phra Yai is home to the 12m-tall Big Buddha statue, Samui’s most famous landmark. At the base of the temple shops and restaurants cater to the needs of devotees and tourist alike. From there, the often deserted beach stretches west and is one of Koh Samui’s calmer stretches of coast, the long, wide bay blessed with tranquil waters all year round. The village itself runs behind the beach and has a friendly local feel with glimpses of the island's more traditional way of life. There's a busy fish, fruit and vegetable market and traditional Thai-style roadside restaurants mixed in with more up-market beachside dining options offering international cuisine. A number of minimarts offer a selection of beers, spirits and international wine as well as fresh bread, cakes, pastries, and snacks. Koh Samui’s quaint and colourful airport is just around the corner.

Tassana Pra

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bang Rak-Big Buddha

Staying at Tassana Pra feels a little like travelling back in time. Walking barefoot on teakwood floors surrounded by antique, homely touches it is easy to imagine life in a more genteel era. Anyone with artistic or literary aspirations would certainly feel at home in this villa, but it has also been carefully designed to offer a range of material indulgences. The free-form pool is a particular delight, especially with the playful addition of a hanging dive platform from the upper terrace. All the living areas are comfortable as well as being beautifully decorated. Options for reflection and relaxation range from lying by the pool to reclining on a soft daybed on the terrace, sinking into one of the deep sofas in the living room or relaxing with a book in the garden gazebo. Meals can be taken in or outside – it’s particularly enjoyable to have dinner served on the terrace, allowing you to enjoy the softly lit garden and twinkling lights of Big Buddha bay beyond.

The master and upstairs guest bedrooms are also worthy of special mention. They are decorated with such delicate antique style you could be forgiven for thinking you'd been invited to a royal residence. The master suite’s dressing room definitely gives this part of the villa a stately ambiance, with the large wooden dresser and built-in panelled wardrobes fit for most princesses.

Whichever spot you choose, the views and surroundings at Tassana Pra inspire a sense of quiet contentment. The managers, Khun Aoy and Khun Wally, could easily be characters from a Victorian novel. Their calm dedication to duty, smiling faces and knowledge of all things relevant make them as much a feature of the house as its stunning architecture.
