Our signature program is designed to inject spirit back into life by using traditional Hatha yoga methods such as selected Shatkarmas to promote clarity and yoga Nidra to relax the mind. Physical asanas tailored to each individual, along with invigorating pranayamas, are explored in the morning with the rising sun.

Our retreat is small in number, with a maximum of 10 attendants, but big in potential. Expect to leave with practical tools to include in your personal yoga practice at home.

  • Peter Photikoe

    Peter committed to a regular yoga practice when he was a journalist based in Washington, DC, 13 years ago and found the courage to leave a highly stressful job in order to pursue a goal of total wellness, inside and out. Peter mostly lives in Thailand but makes regular visits to teach in Chicago, the Bay Area of San Francisco and Amsterdam.

The location of the retreat is at a quiet private beach resort location on the southern coast of Koh Phangan. It might not have the most wholesome reputation: A wild party every full moon thats been keeping people on the other side of sobriety for more than 20 years. Koh Phangan, a tropical island misunderstood by most, but loved by many. It is just 30 minutes away from the busy pace of Koh Samui, but it feels worlds apart.

Did you know that most of the island is a national park with good hikes and fantastic viewpoints? Triathlons and mountain bike races are a regular fixture. The diving is some of the best in the world and so are the spectacular sunsets on the islands many beaches. The charm is that it still feels like an undiscovered gem. Everyone is really laid back and friendly and there is always something to do: from world-class parties to postcard-perfect beaches. Come see for yourself!

Arrival by airplane

The regions premiere boutique airline is Bangkok Airways. There are 20+ flights between Koh Samui and Bangkok everyday, as well as from Asian cities such as such as Hong Kong and Singapore.

Air Asia offers trip bookings through Koh Phangan that combines flight and ferry. The trip takes more than twice as long as Bangkok Airways, but it is a fraction of the cost as well.

Arrival by bus

Most long-haul bus journeys in Thailand are taken on air-conditioned tour coaches. They are the cheapest way to get around, but on longer journeys, they can become a bit tiresome. Nearly all long-haul bus journeys are made overnight when the traffic is at a minimum. All buses and trains stop in Suratthani town center, where you will be provided with a connecting bus to the ferry pier enabling you to continue your over-sea journey to Koh Phangan. Once you arrive at the pier, the ferry ride to Koh Phangan is about 2 and a half hours, but the scenery as you sail the Gulf of Thailand makes the trip goes by rather quickly. Bus tickets can be booked at any travel agents or TicketMajor outlets in most popular malls in Bangkok.

Arrival by ferry

Koh Phangan is located in the Gulf of Thailand and has no airport. In order to arrive on the island, you will need to take a ship. Three major operators in the area are Lomprayah, Seatran Discovery and Raja Ferry. In general, you will not need to worry about booking these tickets in advance. However, we encourage a visit to their websites in order to get an idea of the schedules. Some smaller airlines are partnering with these ship companies for cheaper travel options than flying to Samui.

Arrival by train

The State Railway of Thailand operates an efficient rail service down from Bangkok to Surratthani and up from Had Yai in the deep south of Thailand. Overnight sleeper trains are the best way to go, with clean and secure carriages, waiter service and clean, crisp bedding. Make sure you book the AC private cabin for privacy. You will want to take the train to Suratthani train station. If coming from Bangkok, plan on arriving at Suratthani no later than 05:30 in order to make the first morning ferry to Koh Phangan. Upon arrival at the train station, there will be a shared bus that will take you to the pier.

For information about the booking conditions, please send Awe Resort: Living Yoga an inquiry.

    " I couldn't wish for more - this place is in perfect location, a quick drive from the port, with its own quiet and secluded beach area, a 3-5 walking minutes away from a lovely beach bar and a very nice restaurant and also walking distance to Big C supermarket. This means that you can enjoy your stay even if you don't ride a bike or drive, but if you do - there is free private parking. The place is safe and simply beautiful. It's perfect is you have kids - the sea there is pretty shallow, so it's safe for little kids, and no waves, it's perfect every day. There is a kite surfing school nearby, so we enjoyed watching kite surfers - lovely addition to the sunsets, palm trees and Samui island on the horizon. Staying there was a perfect mix of a tropical island experience and comfort a modern person is used to. There is a small but convenient kitchen equipped with pretty much everything you might need. It's clean, practical, spacious, and moderately exotic. There are two large beds, comfortable mattresses and pillows, air conditioner and good plumbing in the bathrooms. The swimming pool is right under your balcony, you have a beautiful view with the sea and the sunset, the beach is 30 seconds away, the beach area is cleaned and has a nice sand and clear water with breathtaking shades of turquoise. The houses are surrounded by a garden, so even though it's a lot of light and windows and open spaces, you have those blooming flowering bushes protecting your privacy. Not too many insects - I was worried about those, but it wasn't a problem at all. Some tiny ants you come across, one bug and a bunch of beautiful butterflies. I had a mosquito protection and I never had to use it. It may not be a 5-star hotel experience, but it was so pleasurable, I wanted to stay and live there forever! The atmosphere of that place is so unique and peaceful, I became a happier person there. In addition to everything, I discovered a private yoga studio and was allowed to use it for my personal practice - so that place indeed had everything to make me happy. They have yoga retreats from time to time, and I think this place is just perfect if you do yoga and wish to combine a perfect vacation with healing and getting in a better shape - that's the place to go.

    " We stayed at Awe for 8 days in February (couple and a 2-year old). It was a perfect location - away from the hustle and overly-touristic vibe of Haad Rin but an easy taxi trip to all parts of the island. The view just outside your door is great and the pace is very tranquil. The beach is very nice, although it can get dirty fast after a change in tides (not the whole beach, just a long strip of washed up junk). Sunsets are great here and the palm trees provide ample shade during the day. The villa itself is fine - very comfy beds and enough space for the little toddler to roam around. The resort next door provides a nice beach bar and decent food, as there is no food available at Awe. We also highly recommend Milky Bay Resort for its food and service - they are only a 3 minute walk on the beach. About 5 minutes (100 baht) by taxi is Fisherman's Restaurant - the best place we ate on the whole trip. If you want more action, the town of Thong Sala is 5 minutes away by car/taxi, with many taxis driving along the road just outside Awe. They have a nice night market there with lots of food choices. There's not much happening on the beach or at Awe, so day trips are a good idea if you are restless. Beautiful beaches are all over the island, the furthest being only 20-25 minutes away and about 200-300 baht per person in a taxi. We recommend Bottle Beach (Haad Khuad) and Ao Thong Nai Pan Yai as great ways to spend the day. The beach at Haad Rin is more lively with music from various bars/clubs but also with very nice sand and water. Improvements at Awe could easily be made with: screen doors on the main sliding doors for the living area; WAY better beach chairs for the poolside - the current ones are black, often not clean and only have one position; and more regular cleaning of the unit, maybe every second day instead of once every 3 days. There are some stray dogs and cats that roam the property, but they are not a major nuisance as it seems they are just passing through. None of this would keep us away from visiting again, of course. We wish we could have stayed longer. "

    "What a happy, feel-good place to be. I love being on the beach and the beautiful backdrop of Samui in the distance. The design is casual, chic and spacious, feels like your home away from home. It was very roomy for 3 ladies sharing and room for another. Highly recommended for group vacations- sure you'd be happy too with just enough privacy and attention from their friendly staff. I can't wait to visit again and explore more of the gorgeous island too!"

    "Our family stayed at awe resort end January for the weekend and it was one of the most memorable family holidays we have. The resort is ideally located on the beach, the villas were big & comfortable with lots of space, views were amazing and the breeze from the sea lulled us to sleep every night. The staff were great and super friendly whilst their partner restaurant next door made meals convenient. Our daughter had a most enjoyable time at the pool and was thrilled to be right by the beach."

    "Went there for the New Year's Full Moon Party. We rented 2 of the 4 villas. Great private beach, next to another resort that had an awesome little bar, great people, and an opportunity to meet and bond with people from all over the place. It's ideal for what we are, which is young professionals who love to enjoy themselves, but are looking for more in regards to accommodation, ambiance, and service. Considering how crazy the Full Moon Parties get, I'm glad we had a bit of distance between ourselves and the young crowd (18-20). Very easy to sort out a ride to the beach."

    "There is simply not one bad thing to say about this beautiful place! Tranquil, spacious and clean, my villa overlooked the beach and was just metres away from the pool. The staff were lovely and helpful, their partner restaurant and bar next door on the beach was a great hangout for my friends and I, and the location is fantastic. If I'm ever able to return to Koh Phangan I'll be back to Awe Resort for sure. I absolutely loved it!"

    "Nice little resort with some restaurants within a few minutes walk over the beach. We had a great time there with two kids. Our villa was the one next to the see, so great, great views! The pool is nice as well. Our kids played in it the whole day. If we ever decide to come back to Ko Phangan, Awe resort will be the place to go to!"

    "We had a fantastic week at Awe with our 3 children. The villa was clean and tidy and although it is in more of a backpackers area, Awe is a lovely, quiet, oasis and a pleasure to go back to. The beach is good although there are better ones on the island. Wan, the housekeeper, was a big help. The kitchen was very handy for drinks and breakfast. One thing that could be improved is some comfortable chairs to relax on in the evening."

    "This was my first time in Koh Phangan and I'm glad I found Awe Resort. It's a quiet place hidden from the main roads, but easily accessed by taxi. I was pleasantly surprised to see a black swimming pool right in front of our room! We had a nice, modern villa including a kitchen on the bottom floor which my friends and I spent most of our time sharing a meal or playing cards overlooking the beach view in between our sunbathing. If you don't feel like cooking, there are several other eating options right along the shoreline walking either direction. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It felt so comfortable there, like I was right at home. If you are the sporty type, there was kitesurfing rentals nearby and several early morning beach joggers. Overall, I was satisfied with the luxurious comfort of a resort on a beautiful, quiet beach for very reasonable prices."
