Samahita Retreat as a destination offers several complimentary activities to explore our local environment and culture, when not practicing, working out or relaxing.
Explore the water, find your balance and even steady your core as you stand or kneel and paddle, or even try a yoga posture or two. We have a perfect shallow basin with calm waters to practice on in front of our retreat, and a deeper boat channel to journey out beyond the reef for the more experienced. Enquire at the Wellness reception to sign out a board. Complimentary use.
Discover our water front and work out the arms, shoulders and back muscles in the process. All you can do on a paddle board but sitting down in a kayak, which makes it easier to venture out further along our tropical coast line. Enquire at the Wellness reception. Complimentary use.
Every week we organize a boat trip for all of our in-house guests. Local long tail fisher boats with shaded seating take you to visit one of the local islands and to snorkel in these tropical waters and walk the quiet, secluded island beach. When tide and weather permit you can board and return at Samahita’s beach. Please sign up at Reception.
Mother Nature’s gift right at your feet. Go barefoot and ground yourself. Samahita is situated on a quiet and peaceful stretch of beach that extends out for a beautiful 4 km walk. Enjoy the unique colors of our piercing sunrise and special backlit sunsets clouds.
Join our team for a walk along the beach to the Laem Sor Pagoda complex and climb up to Khao Chedi Pagoda. Although it takes a bit of a climb to get there once you’ve arrived you will have one of the greatest views of the area. You’ll learn about the history and Thai Buddhist Culture, explore the beautiful, natural bird life and tropical vegetation along the way and at the top enjoy the stunning vistas across the bay and over to Koh Tan Island and Koh Madsum island. As this is an active religious site please be sure to dress respectfully.
Here at Samahita, we’ve taken the decision to ban single-use plastics including bottles and bags, however, as we know the oceans have become the de-facto dumping ground or final destination for plastics and other waste products. As well as cleaning our beachfront on a daily basis we organize an optional weekly beach cleanup with our guests not only to improve our immediate environment but also to bring people together and spread awareness of the problem, giving the beautiful ocean some of the love that it deserves.
