Holiday Itinerary

Leave behind the cares of daily life at this beautiful wellbeing retreat on the remote tropical island of Koh Samui overlooking the Gulf of Thailand, where your body and soul will breathe freely again through a combination of tranquil movement and meditation, hedonistic massages and exquisite healthy cuisine.

Spend your days practising yoga with international teachers and taking part in group meditation classes, in an atmosphere of cocooned peace in the serenity of beautiful wellbeing studios, some with panoramic sea views and others with mirrored walls and wooden floors.

Give yourself up to the healing power of subtle massage and wrap treatments and feel troubles and tensions fall away in the skilled hands of fully qualified practitioners. Treatments include Indian head massage and absolute aroma retreat, and invigorating coffee body scrub, and the focus of the treatments is on your face, feet, neck, back and shoulders as the knotted muscles of stressful lifestyles are undone with experienced care and gentleness.

Emotional blockages are eased away with stress management sessions and reiki healing as you focus on both mental and physical cleansing with a team of professionals to leave you feeling lighter and happier through a range of supportive emotional therapy sessions.

Away from the treatment rooms and yoga classes, there’s plenty of opportunity to socialise with other guests, or lose yourself in a good book. Linger in the pool, visit the sauna or steam room, catch an evening movie in the mini theatre, or simply soak up the sun on a poolside lounger.

Your three daily meals are created using fresh ingredients using local organic produce wherever possible. The extensive menu offers a fabulous mixture of salads, raw and lightly cooked vegetables, exotic fruit, coconut milk, seafood, wholegrains and noodles and the classic and modern Thai, Mediterranean and Indonesian dishes cater for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.

This retreat is a perfect haven of beauty and serenity, close to white sandy beaches. Rooms are decorated in a Moroccan style that blends elegance with comfort, with crisp, colourful textiles ensuring maximum comfort during your stay.
