5 of the Best Thailand Retreat Destinations

Be warned: Like Sirens luring you in from the sea, Thailand has a way of drawing you back in. This vibrant kingdom of Southeast Asia paints a mystical picture with its spectacular temples that offer a quiet solace away from the noise of tuk-tuks, bustling streets and commotion of the major cities.. it’s no wonder it’s a major retreat destination.

Thailand is a favorite among yoga enthusiasts because of its deep connection with traditional healing treatments, most popular of which is Thai massage, which combines acupressure with yoga-like stretching techniques.

But where do yoga retreat regulars go when they want some of the best wellness & yoga retreat experiences in Thailand? Here are five of the best Thailand yoga retreat destinations worth trying.

Vikasa Yoga 


Vikasa may just be the ideal location for a retreat in Thailand. Salute the sun as you gaze across the unfettered ocean from the open air yoga shala. Choose from an extensive daily program of unlimited yoga and meditation classes. Practice with world-renowned teachers and a community of yoga enthusiasts. Keep your body fueled with organic vegetarian cuisine at the signature Vikasa Life Cafe. Retire to bed with the sound of the ocean as your lullaby. Intrigued?! This is one place you need to experience to believe.

The 7 Day Vikasa Yoga Vacation is the perfect way to experience all that Vikasa has to offer.  During this 7 day yoga retreat, sample the great range of different classes, lounge by the infinity pool, try the state of the art Sky Gym, and make new friends in the ocean-view restaurant. Hire a bike and explore all that Koh Samui has to offer- try snorkeling, hike up the local waterfalls and enjoy a relaxing Thai massage.

Cant squeeze in 7 days? Try the 5 Day option!! Want to add a detox or fitness spin to your getaway? Explore the great range of retreats on offer.

Absolute Sanctuary


This ultimate retreat destination offers four Detox routes for guests to take. Beginners, for instance, may opt for the MLD Detox Program that includes wellness consultations, nutritional supplements, liver flush drinks, far infrared sauna, spa treatment, unlimited yoga classes, and group Pilates classes.

Yoga devotees who want a strongly yoga-focused program may opt to join the Five-Night Absolute Sanctuary Yoga Retreat . Aside from accommodation, this Thailand yoga retreat package covers airport transportation, wellness consultation, full meals with daily fresh juices or smoothies, a complimentary pilates reformer or core suspend class per stay, and unlimited yoga classes (up to 25 yoga classes in a variety of styles are conducted per week).

Samahita Retreat

Hard-core yogis are fans of Samahita Retreat because the centre focuses heavily on yoga. Even better, guests can come at anytime to experience a retreat – whenever their schedule suits them.  With the exception of the peak month of July, Samahita Retreat offers All-Inclusive Flexi-Date and Fixed Date options.

YogaCoreCycle – a blend of fitness-core and cardio – is Samahita’s all-inclusive Flexi-Date holiday package. This package includes a Share Two-Bedroom Loft accommodation, choice of YogaCoreCycle classes, three full meals per day as well as full use of facilities like the herbal steam room and salt-water pool.

For guests who want dedicated yoga sessions without the cardio infusions, Samahita has Fixed Date Yoga Retreats scheduled throughout the year. Since the centre is located near the beach and Koh Samui’s temples and markets, don’t leave without checking out everything the local area has to offer. The resort offers complimentary snorkeling, exploration of Bophut Fisherman’s Village, and Lamai market tours.
