Tassana Pra, meaning “House facing towards the Buddha”, is an authentic teakwood villa, and has become a symbol of Thai elegance on the island of Samui and beyond. The villa was constructed following the traditional house-building techniques of Ayutthaya, the ancient capital of Siam. Tassana Pra occupies a spectacular location atop a hillside and enjoys unsurpassed views across Samui's north-eastern coastline and the straits beyond to the distant outer islands. In the middle foreground is the famous Big Buddha Temple, the inspiration for the villa's name. Tassana Pra has been specifically designed by the owner to be a principal home for most of the year and not just for holiday lettings. Many antiques and decorative items have therefore been carefully selected to make the villa a unique and symbolic place to stay and rest, both for the owner and for privileged guests. Each room features carved teak panels, doors and genuine antique furniture either from Thailand or Burma, while the fabrics are of finest Thai silk and cotton. The fourth pavilion contains the private study of the owner and a guest bathroom and is not accessible to guests. Guests can access the swimming pool and front garden either from the upstairs terrace or the covered patio on the ground floor and there are sun-beds arranged around the pool deck.
