"Wonderful place"

This is an amazing place with room for anyone wanting to do yoga. The place, staff, instructors, food and activities are top notch. People are coming back here over the years and I can't really see why. I would recommend to anyone interested.

Beautiful setting, great facilities, perfect classes. Food was delicious and fresh and had a wide variety so it never felt boring. The massages were great and a good price. The reception staff were very helpful and the transfers were easy. I can't wait to come back.

"Pure tranquility "

My first ever visit to a yoga retreat and I loved it,

After a deep and long sleep I mingled with other guests, I was on my own. I Swam, paddle boarded, did spin cycle classes, circuit training which I loved and of course a bit of yoga. A really relaxing experience. Would recommend.

"A wonderful way to reset your mind"

I loved my experience, from the wonderfully appointed room to excellent instructors, and healthy food. The simplicity and the high quality of services were carefully balanced. I was also impressed with the ecologically responsible ways the retreat runs its operations. I met great people, mostly from Europe, who appreciate the peace and quiet of the place.

"The perfect yoga retreat getaway"

Location is fantastic with direct access to the beach and food was phenomenal! It’s up to you how many sessions you join but I’d recommend you do them all! High level of yoga instruction, teachers are supportive and accommodate all needs.

My stay at Samahita was the best 4 days. The resort is small and cozy, right on the beach, and the view from the yoga shala is magnificent. The instructors were fantastic, clearly very skilled and knowledgeable, including Anna, who was completing her apprenticeship to become a yoga instructor. The food was beyond anything I could ever have imagined. It was exceptional, right down to the coffee. Every single bite was gourmet to me, and I’m a self proclaimed foodie! I had the most pleasant experience and would go back to Samahitain a heartbeat.

"What a wonderful place for one to breathe!"

The surroundings are just perfect, all the details are made with thought. Quiet, serene mornings at the beach before meditation… ah!

Yoga classes were great, also beginner friendly. Breath work pranayama was new to me, got a kickstart to that! Many thanks to Kirstin, Jack and Daniel, for such a great guidance, loved that you put out your personalities into your guiding, was such a great experience.

We had a great lecture on longevity as well. Temple walk was nice and interesting. Loved that we picked up trash together at the beach! You could also use the indoor bicycles on your own time if you wish!

Rooms are nice and clean, roomy. Bed very comfy with 4 pillows!

Food was fantastic! Everything fresh and homemade, loved it! Not too much salt or sugar, genuine flavors.

"Breaths of fresh air"

Despite being a complete yoga newcomer, I was welcomed and encouraged by instructors, staff and fellow guests and enjoyed the experience greatly. The meditation/breath work was equally rewarding and the location is stunning. I wish I could have stayed longer


from Great Britain, May 2023

Beautiful location, amazing food, great roster of classes that you can opt in/out of which allows you to have autonomy about how much you want to practice. A great few days.

"All classes were very informative and helpful"

Help and care instructors took to help your progress into yoga.


from Finland, March 2020

Samahita is a very sympathetic place, with hearty instructors and staff who make you feel welcome. The place is nicely situated right by the sea and has a great variety of cosy lounges where you can relax and the rooms are comfortable. Most of all I really appreciated the emphasis on recycling and eco-friendliness at Samahita. In addition, I found the treatments to be if very good quality.

"The most relaxing, rejuvenating experience of my life "

This retreat has an incredible energy about it with the friendliest staff, incredibly helpful and warm. The yoga classes are suited for beginner to advanced and all of the instructors provide great knowledge, corrections and variations to suit everyone as well as adaptions for injuries. The spa treatments are out of this world and the therapists are all professional and highly trained. The fitness classes are fun and challenging. The food is healthy and delicious with loads of variety. The location is tranquil, with a beautiful beach on your doorstep and fun excursions planned in the week to some local attractions. So impressed and highly recommend this for anyone wanting to get away from the hustle bustle of life!

The nutritious plant-based food locally sourced & all made & prepared in the kitchens retreat by the Samahita staff who are so likeable, friendly & have everlasting smiles.

"Beautiful paradise"

The atmosphere was amazing. It felt like home, like family. The facilities are great and it is right at the beach which is beautiful. We couldn't believe how amazing and delicious the food was and everything was healthy. I went with my mum and we are beginners at yoga but the classes are very good for different levels as the teachers will give different options for each position. They also have a really good spa where you can book treatments and massages. We liked everything about our stay and would love to come back! Thank you to the whole team at Samahita.

"A Yoga Holiday for all levels of Yogi’s"

I liked the ambience of the resort - calm, friendly,happy place. The healthy food was delicious. The setting right on the beach was idyllic. I was a beginner yogi & felt extremely comfortable fitting in with all levels in 1 class. The instructors were exceptionally helpful & caring to my needs. I learnt a lot & am inspired to take up yoga & continue a healthier lifestyle.

"A Tranquil Oasis for a Wellness Retreat "

The service and amenities are great. It’s a beautiful, relaxing setting for a wellness retreat.

Location: It’s about 40 minutes from the airport and a fair distance from nightlife, shops etc, but you can easily book a hotel car to visit places like Lamai beach (20 mins), Silver beach (35 mins) or Chaweng (40 mins). A round trip will cost around 1,100 Thai Bhat.

Food: The buffet spread that was included in my package was of the healthy variety - raw, clean, fresh. The only non-vegetarian food served is fish. It got a bit bland for me but I get the concept. Btw, there is more variety to choose from the ala crate menu e.g. Thai salads, curries etc.

Overall, the package (which I booked through suited me well because I wanted the freedom to choose which sessions I attend so that I can go off and explore the island on my own time.

"The place that makes dreams come true!"

Very important yoga classes that help to make a trip to your internal world, to know better yourself and, finally, to be a better person. Amazing nature, delicious , organic and healthy dishes(!!!) Friendly staff and respect for all! We spent a great time in Samahita Retreat together with my daughter

"A piece of heaven - Samahita -Koh Samui"

The entire experience exceeded my expectations. The location is perfect. I loved the silence in the morning, the yoga practice by the beach, the fact that we started the mornings with cycling, the combination of core and yoga is a beautiful idea. Everyone is free to choose their classes and make their own individual experience. Aromatherapy massage is amazing. All in all a coming within yourself experience while connecting with all the beauty of nature. I highly recommend the snorkeling and boat trip to the island as that is another piece of paradise. The walk to the temple gives you such a beautiful view from up top. Take everything in and allow!


from Singapore, February 2019

"Breathe, focus and relax. "

Amazing teacher team, Gillian, Daniel, Ara, So, Atraiz... thank you very much. I was an absolute beginner in yoga, but you teachers were patient, gave answers to all my questions and made it very easy to learn the basics.

Doing yoga in the morning with beach view during sunrise and meeting a lot of interesting characters is a tempting combination. The food is vegan but really good, massages are great, rooms are clean and the classes are sometimes challenging, but never I really liked the combination of yoga, fitness and spinning.

I am Definitely coming back! Thanks again to the whole team.



from Malaysia, January 2019

"Great retreat, lots of rain"

The retreat was calm and peaceful. My accommodations were very nice. Food was healthy and good variety of different things. Beach along the retreat was very nice. Yoga instructors were very good. They had a little library to borrow books, which was nice. Planned activities (a walk to see temples).


from Ukraine, December 2018

"Definitely coming back! "

What a beautiful retreat, everything was amazing! The yoga, fitness and spinning classes were great! I loved that every day the classes were taught by different instructors. The best part was being surrounded by like minded people and hanging out.

"My first retreat ... and it won’t be my last!"

I loved the location - right on the beach. The room was calming and comfortable, and the bed was very comfortable. The food was mostly very good, although a few dishes were a bit tasteless.

The teachers were excellent and I liked having different teachers for each class to add variety - I’m afraid I don’t know their names so I can’t rate them individually.

The place was just the right mix of healthy and zen without being over the top for a newbie. For example the rule of silence until 10 am was great, but if it had extended all day that would have been too much.

Jenni Tinworth

from Hong Kong, November 2018

I liked the way the instructors were able to cater to both the most agile and the least experienced in a group with the various options for the poses. They were always able to advise and encourage but not to push, which suited this older lady!

The layout and location are superb.

"Uplifting experience"

So many positives: teachers, therapists, location, facilities, food, all terrific. Everyone works towards you having the experience you want and need. But there’s a lovely, serene spirit that permeates Samahita. And when you relax into it, and get over the concept of spinning at a yoga retreat (by the way it works, although there’s no pressure to do anything), you’ll feel it. Learnt heaps. Loved it.

"Too short.. wish I had more time!"

I liked the structure of the programme - the fact that it was a good mix of yoga and functional training which complemented my yoga practise. The programme was well-planned and wonderfully executed. I was able to deepen and strengthen my practise without fear of injury.

"Serene and beautiful"

The instructors we’re very welcoming and warm. They were knowledgable, prodessional and attentive. The location is beautiful, just next to the beach and creates a wonderful surrounding. The facilities were over all expectations, both the accomodation, the shalas and the rest of the dining space and resting space.


from United States, December 2017

"Wonderful Week of Wellness"

My boyfriend and I just enjoyed a fantastic week of yoga, core, cycle. The classes were challenging (just what we were looking for), the food was healthy and delicious and the location was very conducive to relaxation and quiet. It was great to have the option in the morning of an instructor-led class or teacher-assisted self practice. We enjoyed the temple walk excursion as well as walks on the beach and in the surrounding neighborhood. We felt it was an excellent value for the money. Highly recommend and would go back!

"Exceeded expectations "

1. Healthy, tasty and filling vegetarian food. All food was served as buffet. Breakfast started at 6.30am and brunch ran until 1pm. Fruit snack was at 3.30pm and dinner was from 6-8pm. I was never hungry and didn't have to buy extra food.

2. Great Yoga Cycle Programme. Having done my research, what I liked about the programme at Samahita was the balance between fitness, meditation and yoga. All the instructors were fabulous. It lived up to expectations.

3. Clean rooms and great bathroom. I loved the well sized bathroom. The rooms were very clean.

4. Great location. I loved how we were right in the south of the island. As a retreat I think it was good that it was located on the more remote side of the island. The facilities were so good that I didn't want to leave the site anyway.

5. Great spa. Relative to Thailand, the treatments were expensive. However the quality, ambiance and the professionalism of the treatments and therapists were excellent. If you purchase the wellness package then you get a daily treatment which is great value for money.
