Accommodation at Suan Sati is simple yet comfortable, perfect for yogis. The bamboo construction connects you to the local building style with this environmentally friendly material. You have the choice of either the longhouse dorm, a shared bungalow for two, or private accommodation in the Truckalow. Suan Sati has shared toilets and hot water showers located conveniently in the center of the mini village.
This may be the world’s only 1960’s truck converted into a bamboo bungalow! Inside is a dreamy double bed suitable for one person or a couple, a powerful ceiling fan to keep you cool, a reading area in the front of the truck, and a private sunset lounge above the cab. This is currently Suan Sati’s only true private accommodation, perfect for those who would like to have their own space during their stay.
The bamboo bungalows feature high ceilings, wall fans, stylish mosquito nets, rattan bedside tables, spacious balconies, and lush beds to rest your body after those challenging yoga sessions. These are the perfect retreat after a long day of training the body and mind. The bungalows are shared between two guests grouped together by gender whenever possible. Private bungalows are sometimes available upon request.
The dormitory sleeps eight comfortably with storage for your bags and items under the custom-built wooden bed frames. Fans keep things cool from the high ceilings, bedside tables provide a place for your personal items, and electrical sockets and reading lights for each bed invite you to read that next chapter. All this and the most comfortable mattresses around!
Will founded Suan Sati as a lifestyle that would allow himself and others to live the practice and not only visit it. Buddhist meditation, yoga, and permaculture are integral parts of his path, and the opportunity and responsibility to share these things with others in a community setting led him to take on this project. Will is always on site tending the gardens, leading meditation, and sneaking bananas, but he always has time for a chat and a laugh with new friends.

For Lisa, yoga is practicing body awareness and connecting with the deeper self. Yoga opened up a whole new world for her; a world of transformation, acceptance, connection, and the direct knowledge of a higher power, without having to label or define it. One key point for her that leads to a healthy, balanced, and holistic lifestyle is the certainty that there is a vital force within and around our body that keeps us alive, constantly flowing. Every breath, every heartbeat deserves to be honored, on and off the mat. She has completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training in Goa, India.
Suan Sati’s community is located 40 minutes outside of the ancient city of Chiang Mai in a small traditional Thai village. It is surrounded by temples, mountains, and lakes. The retreat center is an active permaculture site. Being surrounded by nature is a big highlight of a stay here.
The food provided is 100% plant-based Thai favorites, with a hearty breakfast of super foods and tropical fruits to start your day off right. The food philosophy is simple. Suan Sati only serves fresh, whole foods, plant-based (vegan) meals prepared with organic vegetables sourced locally or grown in its garden. Suan Sati exercises complete control over exactly what goes into the food and into the bodies, and they invite you to peek into their open air kitchen to see the process.
At Suan Sati, they never use MSG, palm oil, processed white sugar, or high fructose corn syrup. They minimize their use of processed foods, preferring to make their own curry pastes, peanut butter, and organic soy milk. This takes a little bit more time, but it adds a lot of extra love to the food that they prepare, and you can taste the difference.
The Thai master chef has over 30 years of cooking experience, including 10 years teaching Thai cooking. She prides herself on simple, clean, home-style Thai cooking with authentic taste, while remaining committed to keeping the kitchen organic and healthy. Who knew that vegan Thai food could taste so delicious?
The menu is always changing, but you can expect a typical breakfast to include a ‘make your own’ vegan breakfast bowl of local fresh cut fruit, oatmeal, muesli, coconut and soy milk, and an assortment of nutrient dense superfoods like chia seeds, cashews, homemade peanut butter, goji berries, ground flaxseed, cinnamon, sesame seeds, raisins, and psyllium husk. Healthy raw green smoothies are available upon request.
All this and locally grown gourmet coffee and tea make sure that you’re wide awake after that deep savasana. Lunch at Suan Sati is a light affair, with raw green or Thai salads, soups, and fresh seasonal fruit. Dinners feature plenty of Thai food like stir fry and curry, but a constantly rotating menu that you never want to miss what the chef is whipping up.
The garden is over half an acre and completely organic. That means no chemicals and no GMOs or Genetically Modified Organisms. The crops are always rotating, but they regularly grow a variety of salad greens, kale, tomatoes, cucumbers, chilies, galangal, turmeric, beans, sprouts, and pumpkins in their garden, which is only two meters from the kitchen. Farm to table has a very literal meaning at Suan Sati.
If you have any specific food allergies or concerns, please let Suan Sati know so that they can accommodate you. They are familiar with common food allergies and gluten intolerance.
Please book your flight to arrive at Chiang Mai International Airport (CNX). Transfer to and from the airport is not included. Suan Sati will pick you up from the designated pickup point in Chiang Mai.
