Airbnb has just announced that first time in over half a century, the Governor’s Mansion in Phuket, Thailand will be opened for guests.

Set to celebrate Songkran, the Thai New Year, the Sino-Portuguese baroque mansion is packaged as the ultimate designer stay with furnishings from six of Thailand’s top designers, and it will be hosted by Thai superstar Patricia Tanchanok Good and master chef Nooror Somany Steppe.

The 119-year-old Governor’s Mansion was built at the end of King Rama V’s era by businessman Pra Pitak Chinpracha. The home is defined by its neoclassical architecture with white and mustard walls and richly patterned tiles and teakwood floors. Its first floor is now home to the Blue Elephant Restaurant – a Michelin Plate awardee and long-running stalwart of Thailand’s culinary industry.

Guests will be immersed in a quintessentially Phuketian experience, including:

-A personal welcome at check-in by Thai superstar Patricia ‘Good’ Tanchanok, who will share her favorite hidden gems in Phuket and tips for exploring the island.
-Exclusive access to a two-bedroom suite on the Mansion’s expansive second floor, including a private reception lounge and living room.
-A bespoke, multi-course ‘Songkran’ tasting menu prepared and hosted by master Chef Nooror Somany Steppe.
-A scuba diving and snorkeling adventure around the sparkling reefs and islands that dot the Andaman Sea.
-A gibbon rehabilitation social impact experience in Phuket’s last rainforest, Khao Pra Taew Wildlife Sanctuary.

Those interested can visit Airbnb on April 4, 9:00 p.m. ET to book a two-night stay from April 15-17 for a price of only $50 USD.
