"Indulge and retreat into the warmth and intimacy of your own private luxury hideaway"

Need to know

    • 17 rooms
    • Nestles in the mountains of Sam Roi Yot National Park, Thailand.
    • A place where natural beauty and designed elegance meet.

We love

  • The resort offers a beachfront dinner for two in a private cove; a butler takes you by boat and serves you.
  • The view from the infinity pool was breath taking. Upon night fall, the pool area is surrounded by candlelight.
  • The visit to the Phraya Nakhon Cave was tremendous, with a magnificent shrine in the heart of the cave.

Top Secret

You can organise in-room massage services, even for big groups of guests. This was requested from a wedding party who booked out the whole Hansar Pranburi resort for their celebrations.


That very personal intimate feeling you have of wandering around someone’s private home lies in the fact that Hansar Pranburi started out as the former beach residence of a British expat and later as the private holiday home of the founders Suzanne Vetillart Chayavichitsilp and her husband Etienne Vetillart with their young family.  We are lucky that the couple decided to share their perfect weekend beach escape by transforming their home into the Hansar Pranburi Resort, with its signature private residential sense of intimate hospitality.

The Review

Driving along the sand of the secluded beachfront into the Hansar Pranburi Resort feels like coming home to your personal hideaway as you are warmly welcomed into your home by the team of staff and the friendly wagging tail of resident dog, Tao, named after her luscious grey coat. 
The stunning white villa, with textured sand wave walls, offers spacious rooms that feature stunning sea views of the Gulf of Thailand or magnificent mountain views to Sam Roi Yot National Park. The Honeymoon Suite has an outdoor Jacuzzi, set under a wooden canopy against a backdrop of bougainvillea plants and views of the islands. Nature and luxury have never been combined so perfectly.
Surrounded by the wonders of nature, you can explore with a sunset aperitifs boat cruise of the surrounding islands or a boat trip to a secluded private beach; perfect for that memorable proposal or romantic dinner accompanied by butler service. Alternatively, take a more active approach with the latest trend in water sports – stand up paddle boarding on the calm seawaters; or a hike into the Phraya Nakhon Cave. Your foray into the cave will be well rewarded as you come upon the Kuha Karuhas Pavilion, a shrine within a majestic cavern that has been visited by the three Kings of Thailand. More often than not, you will find yourself lazing around the villa’s 20-meter infinity edge salt-water pool on the comfy deck chairs, or sipping cocktails at the outdoor pavilion’s generous daybeds. You can also watch the chefs in action at the homey open kitchen, preparing delicious Thai favourites for your alfresco poolside dinners. 
It will be very hard indeed to leave the Hansar Pranburi as you tear yourself away from this intimate retreat, comforted only by thoughts of your next return.
