Our Guest Reviews

Samahita Retreat helped me find the sense of inner calm I was hoping for. I met some amazing people here, instructors and guests alike and I was provided with knowledge that would allow me to live a more healthy and emotional, mental and spiritual life. Thank you!

Wonderful, especially the afternoon sessions, very valuable and practical lessons that I will apply to improve my health when I return home. Beautiful location, treatments and education. I have really gained from my week here and am looking forward to deepening my yoga asana practice next week with your wonderful instructors.

Thank you also for all your guidance over the last 10 days. It was a pleasure returning to Samahita. As I tell others, this is the best yoga retreat I have been to – one of the main reasons being the quality of teaching which is outstanding. The team’s care and passion is impressive and I have left each stay with new learning and increased love for the yoga practice. Look forward to returning. In the meantime, take care and I wish you and the team all the best.

The way this place is held together with love and consciousness – the wellness team, the expert staff, the wonderfully tasty and satisfying food. And the perfect beauty of a perfect tropical beach. You can create whatever experience you want and not be impacted by anyone else. You are free to go with the beat of your own drum here, held by a little conscious community of love and support.

I choose for the second time Samahita Retreat for the following high standards that are really all met in one place: First it’s super clean, chic & simple, peaceful. The spot is breathtaking, the food is Delicious & classes ( Yoga, Core & Cycling ) offered are perfectly timed for a restorative getaway. Mind, body & soul find harmony
It was my first choice this year to celebrate my birthday as the place offered me the peace of ” me time ” with the opportunity of meeting new souls. It is also great for me to physically & mentally get ready for my rowing competition as you can work out facing ( great facilities ) the beach & healthy food was available throughout the day.

My experience at Samahita was simply amazing! Where to begin..people: you really feel like home, you find a new family at Samahita. One day feels like a month, 2 weeks..and you will have the feeling of having lived there for ages! Yoga: all teachers are amazing, Food: so yummy, healthy and delicious. Service: the staff is brilliant, kind and helpful. , Service: the staff is brilliant, kind and helpful. Rooms are very nice and comfy, location is perfect for relaxing and chilling. Loved Samahita, can’t wait to be back and I’ll carry those memories always with me.

Knowing that a number of people are doing retreat detoxes here made me feel good about my choice to come to a detox place. I will definitely come back if I can. I felt right at ease and at home with the people, the staff, the teachers and the practice. I am excited about the life-changing experience I had at Samahita.

I arrived with the hope of helping my prostate pain. Through the yoga and meditation and the detox, more pain has been reduced. The program was run in a friendly and professional manner, with a fantastic ‘can do’ attitude. Thank you to all the staff for your part in helping me destress, chill out, detox and immerse in the yoga.

Samahita is genuine and unique and perfect in size and location. Very friendly, accepting all levels on training knowledge and offering a place to relax, enjoying and meeting people while improving your body and mental health. I can recommend Samahita to anyone, coming alone, with family or friends does not matter-you will have a great time.

It was a well deserved rest from everyday life. Great that the meals are included and are available for those hours that they are. And the many new tastes the kitchen presented throughout the week was amazing.

I would recommend this retreat to anyone feeling ‘bogged’ down in life. To come here and treat yourself is the biggest gift of all. I leave with an amazing feeling to deal with the ‘real world’ in better ways and look after myself.

I feel blessed to have discovered Samahita Retreat and privileged to have spent time with the wonderful teachers here! They have created the most beautiful space where I just love to come and unwind, reflect, cleanse and deepen my yoga practice. This is my second time at Samahita and I look forward to returning year after year to continue to grow, relax and be nurtured in this amazing and unique environment.

I had a wonderful time there. I did not expect to take so much pleasure!! The teachers were all nice and easy to communicate with, efficient and very professional. That was the first excellent surprise!

Last excellent surprise and not the least! THE FOOD. Healthy and delicious is the best combo ever, and you made it happen! Thanks for that!!

Samahita Retreat is a wonderful place! I really enjoyed my time in Thailand. Lots of yoga, great food, friendly staff, luxury rooms, sunshine and the sea. I’m definitely coming back again. Thanks Samahita for having us.

Rigorous, well-structured, and well-organized. It was intense but in a good way — you learn so much in such a short amount of time. Amazing adjusting by Arielle and Elonne. Their anatomy and philosophy classes were also well taught and very educational.

Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience, its all incredible advice! Asana Study and philosophy opened new perspective for me and my understanding of yoga. I feel very inspired.

“ It was a wonderful experience!”

It was very good! The place, the food, the teachers, the staff, the wonderful weather. I am so grateful for staining one week in the place. The energy was so nice, it’s so peaceful and respectful of nature!! I definitely recommend Samahita. If you love yoga, this is the place to practice in communion with nature!!! Thank you very much

“Yoga Retreat”

We really enjoyed the yoga classes and the location just in the peaceful place We enjoyed the food the room.its.was great We will back there and recommend this place for relaxing time or yoga retreat

“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!

“Be here now”

My private lessons from Therapist Ara clearly demonstrated she is in the presence, genuinely engaging, caring & has a pleasant joyful nature. Ara guided my breathing rhythmic, correcting my yoga postures in Yin & Vinyasa & inspired me to give my best in silent Yoga Core Cycle in order to discover how I’m capably challenged without music, just listen to my breath! The nutritious plant-based food locally sourced & all made & prepared in the kitchens retreat by the Samahita staff who are so likable, friendly & have everlasting smiles. Introducing me to Keto bullet proof coffee – truly grateful for that unexpected treat. Expertise treatment from The Wellness team for my self-care sessions. Watching my son being in absolute joy. Surrounded by purity & harmony. Forever grateful to Samahita Team & Therapists & Guests. All this thanks to Yoga Namaste

“ Great experience”

Amazing retreat, would highly recommend. Found exactly what I was looking for: peace, great classes and a very nice vibe. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for such an experience.

“Beautiful paradise”

The atmosphere was amazing. It felt like home, like family. The facilities are great and it is right on 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 ambiance 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 for my needs. I learned a lot & am inspired to take up yoga & continue a healthier lifestyle.

“A wonderful retreat experience”

The instructors, Ara and Rebecca guided the classes wonderfully. I have grown so much in understanding by attending their classes. Food served was delicious, healthy and prepared with great thought and care.

“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 Baht. 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 carte menu e.g. Thai salads, curries, etc. Overall, the package (which I booked through bookyogaretreats.com) 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.

“A 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.

Very friendly staff, meals were good (very healthy), an amazing place overall.

“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 morning 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!

“Breathe, focus, relax”

Amazing teacher team, Gillian, Daniel, Ara, So, Alaitz… thank you very much. I was an absolute beginner in yoga, but your 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 I really liked the combination of yoga, fitness and spinning. I am Definitely coming back! Thanks again to the whole team.

“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).

“Feel at home!”
ambience, food, meditation, comfort….

“Exceptional”

Alles. Wat een top resort. Heerlijk eten, zeer behulozame en lieve staff, zeer goede yoga lessen, fijne sportlessen. En dat alles aan een prachtig, mooi, rustig strand… Ik ga zeker nog een keer terug.

Everything. What a top resort. Great food, very helpful and lovely staff, very good yoga lessons, nice sports lessons. And all that on a beautiful, beautiful, quiet beach … I will definitely go back again.

“Exceptional”
Every program provided, including yoga bike and core, including 3 healthy meals, Wowwwww is truly awesome.

I took a 5-day Total 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 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 mile 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!
