About Visit Natural Detox Resort
Get to know us better
The Visit Natural Detox Story
The Visit Natural Detox Resort was founded in 2012 as a cosy resort close to the beautiful Lamai Beach. It featured a simple restaurant with Thai food and a beautiful pool.
Over the years it became more and more involved in health and detox, as next door the Muay Thai Gym developed into a world class health & fitness centre. The resort started organising their now famous all-inclusive packages, with no short-cuts to weight loss and full-body health.
Nowadays people from all over the world come to the resort and superfood café, requesting only the healthiest food, clean and comfortable rooms, detox treatments, as well as quality workouts and yoga classes.
Our holistic approach avoids ‘quick win’ diets and colonics, and instead focuses on letting your body do what it does best – cleansing itself naturally with food and exercise.
Our team will help you balance mind, body and spirit by ensuring your body has the healthiest food to fuel it, daily exercise to sweat toxins out, along with enough downtime for you to relax and regenerate at your own pace.
Our location, on the beautiful island of Koh Samui in Thailand, definitely adds to the process of de-connecting with the ratrace. The sunny tropical climate does wonders for the mood and the white Lamai beach, just a stones throw away, is perfect for relaxation… or a heavy workout!
We pride ourselves on being a cosy resort offering a personal approach. Everyone has different abilities in their personal fitness and yoga practices – but most importantly, everyone has individual goals.
Our lovely staff will welcome you with their famous Thai smiles – nothing is more contagious than positive happy vibes. We hope to welcome you soon at Visit Natural Detox Resort!

Typical daily schedule
The Visit Natural Detox TEAM
Growing up as an all-around athlete running, cycling and swimming come naturally to Lander. In his early twenties he excelled in the half-marathon distance and as a previous nature guide, he enjoyed taking international groups deep into the jungles of Thailand, Myanmar, and Borneo. He’s always happy to show guests the unspoiled side of Koh Samui. Besides running, Lander is a gym fanatic, eager to inform guests how to improve their fitness level using barbells, the squat rack, or gym machines.
Leo has spent the last 4 ½ years making his way from the corporate world and hiking trails of Los Angeles to the island life and jungle trails of Koh Samui. The life changing journey began after being a nomad in the US, Europe, and Bali for 10 months. Leo completed his 200-hour yoga teacher training at Orion Healing Centre on the beautiful island of Koh Phangan and then went to Koh Tao complete another 200-hour TTC, where the focus was around spinal pranayama, deep meditation and samyama. To complement his vinyasa and meditation practice, Leo became certified in the art of yin yoga. “I am immensely grateful for the opportunity to be here and hope to continue to foster the vivaciously abundant and beautiful culture that is present at Visit Natural Detox Resort. By acknowledging the abundance all around us, we can awaken the dormant abundance within us. The Buddhist tradition of living a loving and kind life to yourself and others is paramount to creating abundance within you. Let it flow- smile at strangers, be of service to others, become a giver. Let us further nurture a sense of family and weave this diverse community of Koh Samui more strongly together.”
RETREAT MANAGER & PERSONAL TRAINER
Meet our personal trainer Netta, who has an incredible passion for movement, deep health and helping people. Throughout her life, she has always been fascinated with exploring new ways to keep her body active and healthy, which led her to engage in a variety of sports. Eventually, she found herself competing in bodybuilding, where she learned the life-changing impact of dedicated training, diet and mindset. However, her experience with bodybuilding also highlighted the detrimental effects of an extreme approach to fitness. It was then that she realized the importance of a healthy relationship with food and the body. Now, as a coach, she draws upon her extensive knowledge and compassion to assist others in achieving their fitness goals without relying on unsustainable diets or training regimens. Her focus is on teaching individuals sustainable habits that can last a lifetime, and empowering them to celebrate their unique abilities and bodies. Netta is a certified personal trainer, women's coaching specialist, movement & mobility coach and is currently studying to become a certified nutrition coach.

Mike is specialized in Hatha yoga, focusing on the precision and alignment of Iyengar Yoga, and with the softness of Sivananda. “Before yoga, I was a boxer and I loved it, but after years of boxing and other strenuous sports, like running and lifting weights it made my muscles and body too tight and very stiff. Yoga solved this problem for me.” Mike will share his knowledge of yoga with everyone in the hope that they can do the same. His classes are suitable for beginners and beyond.
