The Samahita retreat really provides an oasis to nourish the whole you. Located in a relatively remote but accessible picturesque location in Koh Samui. It was easy to organize trips... read more off the retreat and perfect to just stay in and relax, get treatments, eat, or workout. Can I tell you how amazing the entire staff was? Everything from cleaning, reception, food, wellness/treatment, and laundry- the staff here was just always helpful and affable. Such a breath of fresh air! Will return if I have an opportunity, and definitely recommend.

If you are a yoga student looking to deepen your understanding of yoga and particularly the practice of pranayama Dr Dallaghan is one of the best exposers. His studies... read more were done directly (guru-shishya tradition) for more than 20 years with one of the most renowned masters of classical pranayama in India: Dr O.P. Tiwariji.
Samahita with its Centered Yoga School TT provides with one of the highest standards of trainings that goes even beyond of the required 200h of Yoga Alliance. I have been coming for 15 years and it just gets better. The training evolves. Dr Dallaghan keeps himself actualized due to his own research and also by the exchange with other institutes and Universities.
If you are looking for vacation with some yoga, good healthy food, and good overall care Samahita is amazing, the senior teachers will provide you with high level of yoga classes. The staff is the most loving people, gentle and kind people.
This is why so many students around the world keep coming back to this place we consider our second home: to learn and to relax looking at the beautiful sea, and allow ourselves to be taken care of, genuinely. More

I was recently finished the two weeks Advance Yoga Teacher Training course at Samahita Retreat in July 2022.
It was an transformation experience.
Apart from exceptional in -depth... read more teachings in Anatomy , asana, and Pranayama practice, everything else was highly supportive for the whole stay.
The teaching teams were very caring and experienced. The staffs have great service- mind and always helpful. The food is highly supportive for the yoga and Pranayama practice. I feel so much change in my body and my skin got clearer by the end of my stay. It was amazing.
The accommodations and the place is great for retreating. I had time to be quiet, reflect as much as time to connect with friends in the group. The overall experience was transformative. I highly recommend it for anyone who looks for a real knowledge and time out for yourself. More

As a long-time visitor of Samahita (and formerly Yoga Thailand) - since 2003!-, I was overjoyed to finally be able to come back and spend time at one of my... read more favorite places on the planet: to rest, recharge and reconnect with myself and friends, old and new. After the pandemic lockdown, Samahita was still beautiful, fresh and welcoming, as if the world had not come to a standstill for 2 years! The lovely staff were as warm and friendly as ever, offering undiminished excellent standards of service and attentiveness. The accommodations were still fantastic: the private room i stayed in was cozy and well-appointed, and felt like coming home. The beach front areas - dining area, pool and lounging areas - were simply wonderful places to socialize or spend quiet time. One of the (many) highlights were my daily treatments: excellent massage therapy, facials and the amazing near-infrared sauna sessions made me feel brand-new after my 8-day stay! The daily brunch and dinner veggie buffets were extensive, delicious and nutritious, with optional offerings of fish, eggs and dairy products. And of course, what made my visit most memorable was reconnecting with Samahita’s amazing teaching crew: Gill, Daniel and Ara, and my dear friend of old, Dr. Paul, who with their wealth of experience, provided top-notch, expert and joyful yoga/wellness classes! I can’t wait to return for my next recharge. More

My husband and I came here for May TT (Teacher's Training) May 6-June 4, followed by family reunion. The 28-day TT program led by Dr Paul Dallaghan & his... read more wonderful team (Gill, Daniel & Ara) was excellent, packed with useful & practical gems on both knowledge & experiential learning spanning across all area integral to yoga: Breathwork, Asana, (physical), Anatomy, philosophy, Sanskrit related to Pranayama & yoga pose plus how to conduct/teach a real class. The immersion program ran from 7am-6pm with 5 exams was well designed to help deepen our learning. Both my husband & I found the program useful helping us correct lots of old bad habits while gaining new insights. Food was organic, healthy & delicious! I didn't realize food in Samahita was so good until we had a much terrible yet expensive dinner at Amber, Intercontinental Samui Hotel. Just like bouncing back from my longtime shoulder injury, having eaten in a bad restaurant made me aware how lucky I was being pampered by Samahita for 5 weeks!!! Special recognition goes to the Director, Gill who exemplified her gentle leadership spearheading the operation with grace, strength & flexibility while Paul was recuperating from shingles during week 4 of TT. After TT, our two sons joined us for their signature YogaCoreCycle program which was much relaxing (compared to TT) but good enough to keep our energetic & athletic sons occupied with good "core workout" plus new yoga learning. ...

Accommodation was fine with housecleaning 3X per week which was good enough. My small issue was the mattress which was bit too soft & air-conditioning bit too loud. All in all, excellent enriching experience for both personal & family!

I took a 5-day Self Care Program at Samahita Retreat and it turned out to be one of the best holidays I have ever had!
The retreat is just... read more right next to a beautiful beach so it is very relaxing. They have a great infrared sauna, steam sauna and a lovely pool.
Oh the food, you will never have enough of it;)!
And most importantly, the staff at Samahita is truly caring, friendly and wonderful.
The staff at the reception(thanks Fong and Fon!) is exceptionally helpful, and always do extra miles to make sure you are well taken care of; and my therapist, Neena(10 stars), is super sweet and her massage is one of the best massages I have ever had!! On my birthday(yes this was my bday trip), the entire staff even surprised me with a delicious chocolate cake!
I love their yoga classes too! Thanks Gill, Daniel and Ara so much for your teaching, I had loads of fun in your classes:)!!
Can't wait to come back again soon! More

Samahita is a fabulous, relaxing humble non-pretentious place in a quiet location on Koh Samui. The staff are beautiful, very kind and helpful, and motivating. The therapists give fantastic massages. I came here to kick start a healthy weight and diet regime and develop a yoga practice. I am a much happier, lighter, stronger, and relaxed person that when I arrived!
