My accomodation was a bamboo hut called water. I had wonderful sea view and sounds.
All food was home cooked by the hosts and was the high light of my day. Each meal was different and healthy. The week I stayed there was the healthiest I have ever eaten !!!!
Yoga sessions were completed with an outstanding sea and beach view, instance and sounds from nature.
My week stay also included learning of yoga philosophy which was a brilliant touch.
I would definitely reccomend Future Hippie if you are looking for a step into nature, with wonderfully welcoming hosts and outstanding food.

"Basic beach breath. Tranquility and isolation"
Beautiful location on beach in best part of island. Quiet. Amazing sunsets. Back to basics life. Towels and mosy net included and needdd. Meike and Chris were great yoga instructors. Vegan food on offer...Limited selection but hand cooked daily. Meike was very friendly, welcoming and helpful, booking transfers etc. Thankyou. I loved the meditation session but only 1x offered to me all week.
Good for young and adventurous travellers if they can afford it.

The location is perfect, you can find a great balance between doing your own thing during the day, enjoying yoga and coming together for meal times. A very special experience. Mika and Rayk are incredibly welcoming and will tailor your experience to whatever you are looking for. Great hatha yoga with Mika, creative flows with chris and yogilates with Miriam!
What a wonderful way to reset and rest. Waking up to the ocean every day and doing yoga by the beach was unforgettable. Absolute paradise. The location is not in a busy part of Samui, which is perfect if you are looking for a serene vacation. Great yummy vegan food. I did a Muay Thai training class down the road which was also fun. I ate delicious (and cheap!) local food for lunch in between reading and swimming. There is a real sense of community here with a great relaxed vibe. Unforgettable. Bring your favourite book & a deck of cards. THANK YOU!

"Amazing place where you can escape your everyday-stress"
My stay at futurehippie was as good as hoped.
Life at futurehippie is really simple (bamboo huts, in my case shared bathroom, living within nature) what I really enjoyed. Good WIFI and electricity is available on the whole area.
The Location is really nice because right in front oft he beach and very quiet. I stayed at the bungalow „water“. From there I had a straight view to the ocean.
The Yoga lessons were varied because of different yoga teachers and different yoga styles. I really liked it because it gave me the opprtunity to get to know different yoga styles and also to learn more about Yoga philosophy during my stay.
Mika and Rayk are super nice hosts and do their best to make your stay as perfect as possible. Doesn’t matter if you need help with arrange a taxi, organize a trip at the weekend (in our case a boat trip with snorkelling), help to get rid of the mosquitos in my bungalow or a personal talk. Mika and Rayk are almost the whole day available to help and listen/talk to their guests. I had also a life coching session with Rayk which was really helpful for me and changed my view on certain matters.
You created an amazing place to escape from the everyday-stress and gather new energy.
Many thanks Mika and Rayk! I really enjoyed my stay!

Mika and Rayk are the kindest. They really cared about my experience and made me feel at home. I loved the yoga classes and the space overall. Also, I had the beach right in front of my bungalow and the space is calm and the perfect location for a grounding yoga retreat. Everyone sharing the experience with me there was lovely as well and I got to know some beautiful souls. I really hope to be able to come back some time again. It was great meeting you, Mika and Rayk! Thank you for this great experience.

"Delicious vegan food at Future Hippie "
Welcoming and gracious hosts with great energy, exquisite sunsets, beautiful secluded beach just a short kayak ride away, healthy and delicious food, and beautiful spaces to do yoga, meditate, or just hang out in a hammock. The yoga sessions were lovely too and the teachers were very keen to help you improve your personal practice. Overall, I had a great time!

"Highlight of my trip"
Future hippy is a very welcoming place. Meike and Rayk will do everything what is within their range for you to get the most outof your stay.
The yoga lessons are offered twice daily and additionally meditation classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. All the teachers are very kind, open en helpfull. For me as a beginner they would help me positioning my body. The lessons were modified with more advanced assanas for experienced yogi's. Due to the small groep size a very safe environment has been created and everybody is able to learn at their own level. You can always have a chat about yoga or meditations and learn even more.
I stayed in the water bungalow and would wake up and fall asleep with the sound of the ocean. The beautiful scenery would also be the first thing I see when I step outof my door in the morning.
The included breakfast and dinner are delicious and healthy. Also, dont forget to try the smoothie(bowls) for lunch, they are my favorite!
During the day you can practice yoga/meditations by yourself, make use of any of the additionally offered facilitys like massages/private lessons or just enjoy and relax. I loved to have a swim in the calm oceaan right in front of the retreat when the temperatures are high.
My stay at future happy has really been a highlight. I have learned so much and was abel to fully relax and enjoy. Also, I feel confident for being able to intergratie yoga and a healthy life style in my family life. I wish I could have stayed longer.
