"My first yoga retreat and so happy I ended up at Island Yoga"

Very friendly and helpful staff, good recommendations and always at your service. Wonderful shalas and teachers, a good way to meet other lovely people and the tai chi was a nice touch to the sunrise each morning before the first yoga class. Really recommend this place and also I would be happy to visit again!

"Beautiful spot to reconnect to yourself"

First yoga retreat and surely coming back soon. The tai chi class during sunrise was the perfect starting point for the following yoga class, the team is charming and the location is just stunning. Highly recommending Island Yoga to deepen your yoga practice and align your body and mind.

"Serenity at its absolute finest"

If for nothing else - go to simply experience Dimitri’s Sound Bath session.

It was an experience I will late forget and an amazing way to ever first encounter the experiences with gongs and sound bowls.

It is differently of the higher end of a budget yoga place and the three Shalas are all so so beautiful and will hold space for anyone who wish to ground themselves and take a few days to give some self love, nurture and care.

You MUST also participate in a morning Thai chi session at the beach while witnessing the most impressive sunrise.

My warmest recommendations to go visit Island Yoga.

"Live the moment "

Had a wonderful time on the Yoga Island. The teacher (adcanced lessons) are really professionell and challenging and I learnd new positions and breath technices. The athmosphere is very familiar and after a week it feels like home. There are a lot of interesting workshops, the breakfast is really tasty, the dorm is really good (with ac and 4 fans, two bathrooms) and the island is also very cute und calm. I will definetly come back again♡

The retreat is ideally remote but not too much, with nice restaurants and beaches at walking distance. And the island is really peaceful.

Female dorm is perfect option as you are only 3 per bungalow.

Enventually, the staff was so friendly and they organised my return to Phuket, taxis and boat, which was really convenient.

It really was a great experience and I might come back! ^_^

"A calming and tranquil experience"

I was a bit worried before I arrived that I might be too much of a yoga beginner but I couldn't have been more wrong. As mentioned, the instructors were all fabulous. There was another instructor, Betty, who isn't listed above but who was also brilliant and her classes were so much fun. The knowledge of the teachers was extremely impressive and informative. I felt in very safe hands and enjoyed the whole experience. The accommodation is also lovely, it's a quiet island with not much going on so perfect if you want to get away from it all, as I did. I will definately be returning.

"Great retreat"

Great stay, location was perfect, good food and good vibe with the other people.

Private room was simple but what do you need... you’re outside all day;-)

Yoga classes good and everyday different flows. Little village nice too and rent a scooter to explore the island.

"Great Experience!"

There was always something to do and I was very productive. I only stayed for 3 days but at the end it felt like I was leaving another home. The staff are very kind and helpful and I met people from all over the world. It was a truly amazing experience.

"perfect location and amazing experience for first timers"

Instructors are fantastic, I’ve improved my yoga skills tremendously. The Tai Chi class with sunrise is such a great experience, always love it when David decided to give a piece of advice regarding life.

Island Yoga is a beautiful place with people literally from everywhere in the world. Came alone and ended up having a family. Had some peaceful time to contemplate my life and it helped a lot with mediation to reconnect with myself.

"A place to heal body, mind and soul"

Everything was fantastic. The island is incredibly beautiful, sunrise Taichi with those views was something to remember forever. I love the yoga classes, not easy to find these days such good teachers of traditional hatha. I have to say that the classes with Dimitri were probably the most beautiful ones in my life. All the rest was fantastic too: healthy yummy food, great atmosphere, super nice ad helpful staff... I has a great time, so relaxing and healing that can't wait to come back. Thank you to everyone! :-)

"Excellent place to relax and rejuvenate"

After Island Yoga, I spent one night at Kamala Beach in Phuket and it was so crowded. Koh Yao Noi is a great island to be on to relax. It is small, quiet, and you can easily walk or get around via taxi, bicycle, or scooter.

Island Yoga itself was amazing. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Yoga was very nice with different instructors with different styles. The chakra and sound bath workshops were different/interesting, but are an extra charge. Christmas eve dinner was very nice. You can try different types of foods and mingle with the other guests. Also an extra charge, but worth it. Buddha Beach was a nice, quiet beach area to swim in. I went twice. First time, there were 3 other people. Second time, there were at least 10 people, but I was alone by the time I left around 3pm. Friendly cats, especially the tabby near Bhakti, and the big yellow one near heart sala. Great conversations with Betty after morning tai chi. The tai chi classes were a great bonus to start off the day right.

"Amazing first-time yoga retreat!"

This holidays, I challenged myself to do something I never expected myself to: go to a yoga retreat. This retreat was a perfect soft landing into the yoga world. Our instructor was amazing, and the daily 4 hours of yoga just flew by. The lessons were challenging but I always felt like I can do this. The environment is delightful. Every lesson was different and I feel like we covered an enormous amount of different things.

The location is really nice, the pool area is cool. The food in the restaurants is good and it’s easy to move around the island by scooter.

The sunrise tai chi sessions were delightful. I feel like the vibe at the retreat is very understanding and human-friendly, wuthout a super spiritual-yogi-blabla -attitude. The atmosphere with other attendees is very relaxed and everyone focuses on their own yoga.

The owners of the restaurant were super friendly and the family dinner, for instance was great!

The location was really good and directly at the beach. The bungalow and the whole resort looked really nice :)

atmosphere was chilled and nice

"Peaceful and immersive yoga and tai chi experience "

Betty and DimitrI were excellent, positive and intuitive teachers giving you individual attention and guidance even in large class sizes. They were both open to answering queries after class and included wonderful meditative sections. The classes changed every day and variety of styles of yoga was covered across a week. The tai chi on the beach was magical at sunrise.

"Amazing amazing amazing"

I had such a wonderful time here. I came on my own for the 4 day retreat and loved every minute of it. Anotnella the yoga teacher was fantastic. The focus was on restorative yoga which I had never really done before but felt the difference in my lower back after the 4 days. The sunrise Tai Chi was also super peaceful and well worth waking up for every morning. the brunch was really tasty. I also met a great group of people there and rented bicycles to take around the island. The island itself is still not super touristy which is really nice. There's no party scene which I found refreshing compared to the other islands I visited. Would highly recommend.

"Perfect to calm down"

The food, the location and the people are amazing! Everybody is doing his best to help the environment and the place is just gorgeous and calms you down immediately.

"Unique place on earth, totally recommendable"

I liked that the location is surrounded by pure nature. Fell in love with the sunrise Tai Chi - you have to participate. It is worthed to get up that early. The team is very lovely, food and accommodation suited to the whole retreat. You can get so much inspiration and input if you like or you just relax at the pool or explore the island between the yoga classes... I felt super relieved and relaxed after one week!

"Restorative self care "

This was my first yoga retreat and I absolutely loved it! Antonella classes are always so calming and relaxing. I really enjoyed the morning Tai Chi and Qi Gong classes too. It’s an amazing feeling waking up in the morning to watch the sunrise while doing tai Chi, gaining energy from the natural environment. The classes really helped to you to reconnect with your body and yourself, which was very therapeutic. Also, the staff are really friendly and helpful too! And the breakfast and family dinner, is so delicious!

"A great yoga experience for two yoga beginners"

My husband and I visited Island yoga as the first part of our journey to Thailand. We felt very welcome and ended up staying two more days than planned. The yoga classes were great, and in between classes, we explored the island. Overall we had the best stay and felt very relaxed after 6 days, both in the body and in the mind.


from Great Britain, April 2019

"Total chill place"

I really loved this yoga retreat. It was very quiet at both island yoga and the island when I was there. Guests were all very friendly and the yoga instruction excellent. I will be back :)

"Yoga and relaxation at koh yai noi"

I had a lovely private en suite bungalow with air con & wifi. It felt like a luxury while travelling. The pool in the resort was a great factor to chill out by and socialise with other visitors.

I loved the yoga classes. The yoga shala was spacious and wooden with huge windows. The classes were well taught and I felt so relaxed after them. The sunrise tai chi on the beach was another nice surprise. We got up super early at 5:45am but got to drink tea or coffee and eat fruit and bread on the beach as the sun was rising. Then stared tai chi with Antonella at 6:15am. The whole setting was stunning. We walked though shallow water onto a sandy island for our practice with a backdrop of karsts and longtail boats in the distance. It felt amazing.

I'm always a fan of Thai food. There were meat and veggie options on site. There are also local restaurants in walking distance if you want to go out. The breakfast buffet was so big it was more like brunch! reception staff were really friendly and great with helping me to organise transport from the island to Phuket. I would definately go back.
