It’s a Huntsman, also called a Rain Spider. It is in family Sparassidae. Spahttps://spiderid.com/spider/sparassidae/ It looks like genus Heteropoda. They aren’t dangerous to people. In many parts of the world they are welcome in homes because they are very good at hunting insects when they aren’t sleeping in your bed. 🙂
