Why You Should Book a Yoga Retreat on Koh Samui

By Keiraleane

With so many yoga retreats in various locations, what makes Koh Samui different? And why should you book a yoga retreat in Koh Samui? We are here to tell you about this incredible island and why you need to visit it. Koh Samui is the largest of three islands in the Gulf of Thailand and is a popular holiday spot for backpackers and Hollywood stars alike! Here, you’ll get to experience the best of city life mixed with much more relaxed island life.

During a yoga retreat on the island, you will eat breakfast surrounded by palm trees, practice yoga alongside the sounds of nature, feast on delicious local fruits, and spend your evenings gazing over the ocean at the most incredible sunsets you’ve ever seen. There really is nothing more to it; it’s paradise!

In this post, we will provide you with all the reasons why you should book a yoga retreat in Koh Samui and witness one of Thailand’s most incredible places.

It’s a Great Place to Begin Your Trip

Koh Samui is the most famous of Thailand’s islands and is home to one of the country’s international airports – making it an easy place to travel from anywhere in the world. Why not start your trip with a relaxing retreat on Koh Samui and use this hub as a place to discover the rest of Thailand? Samui is only a short boat ride from Koh Tao and Koh Phangan, also located in the Gulf of Thailand, and equally as beautiful! You can also find domestic flights from Koh Samui that will allow you to explore ‘The Land of Smiles’ before quickly returning to your Koh Samui home.

Koh Samui offers the perfect introduction to Thailand, combining the ideal mix of city life and island life. You can’t go wrong with markets, waterfalls, cultural spots, and enough beaches to last you a lifetime!

Koh Samui Beaches are World-Renowned

Koh Samui is home to 40 beaches, yes, 40! From coves to bays to palm-fringed strips lined with restaurants serving delicious food, it won’t be long before you find your forever patch of sand and never want to leave.

Why not use your free time during your yoga retreat in Koh Samui to explore some of the lesser-known beaches around the island? Get yourself an island map, a moped, and feed your wanderlust!

The water in the Gulf of Thailand is at a constant temperature of about 30 degrees Celsius, so year-round, you can wade out into the ocean and feel like you’re settling into your bath at home. And after a long day of relaxing yoga classes and foot massages, what more is there to do than, you know, relax even more?!

Koh Samui Weather

When you head to Koh Samui and spend every day in your yoga clothes, you can count on being warm. Even during the monsoon season – November-December – Thailand is still incredibly warm, and you’ll be lucky enough to experience some of the most incredible rainfall you’ve ever seen!

Waking up to blue skies, birds singing, and beautiful sunshine is one of the best things about booking a yoga retreat in Koh Samui. And every evening will provide you with the spectacular light show that is a Thailand sunset – you’ll never have seen anything like it. Set yourself up on the West of the island for dinner, and catch the evening at around 6 pm every night, year-round.

And even if it rains, you can settle into Shavasana to the background noise of rain falling on the palm trees. Instead of playing this noise on your phone to get to sleep, why not experience it?

Discover a Beautiful Island

As well as practicing yoga daily, filling your body with nutritious food, and spending your evenings on the beach, an entire island full of beauty and adventure surrounds you! During our yoga retreats, we spend every morning hiking through the lush jungle, embraced by the sounds of nature. You’ll discover beautiful corners of the island without even thinking about it!

Our all-inclusive revitalize package includes a full-day trip to neighboring Ang Thong National Marine Park. During our time here, we will be kayaking, hiking, and snorkeling our way around one of Thailand’s most beautiful and least visited places.

Whatever you want from your trip to Koh Samui, we are here to make it happen! Whether you want to add island tours to your yoga retreat or discover places only the locals know about, we’ve got you covered.
