I liked the resort location and facilities, the private beach is lovely and Loyfa resort is nestled along a coastline with a beautiful view. there is a high street with great shops and restaurants and also other local beaches. The dorm rooms were nice and large with good storage and they were also cleaned every day.

"Fantastic yoga retreat - I can't fault it "
I've been reading some reviews and frankly I can't understand how anyone could say anything negative about this place.
The price is absolutely amazing for what you get - the instructors are all amazing, the food is delicious, the resort is heavenly!
The dorms were really quiet and relaxed, with curtains for privacy. I met some lovely people here too. The private beach is dreamy, the massage was incredible, and the free daily coconut was a lovely extra.
I have only put less than 5 stars for location because honestly I didn't leave the resort 😅

"Great but different from my expectations."
The food was delicious but there was only 2 main food dishes for evening meal other than rice and salad. Extensive breakfast options. Staff were helpful. Beautiful location. Great massage therapist. Great staff. Beautiful pool and massive resort. Informative, slow yoga classes. I really learned a lot this week included a new juice recipe :D <3

"Coming back to Loyfa"
The instructors all were excellent and the ambiance wonderful. Every meal was delicious. I had 2 Thai Oil massages during my stay and they were great. The dorm was cleaned daily and very comfortable and quiet. Overall I feel the Loyfa yoga and meditation retreat is my highlight in this Thailand vacation. I cannot wait to return. Thank you!

"Recommended to everyone"
I absolutely loved this retreat. The place is gorgeous, has its own private beach and you feel super in contact with nature. The program is well organized, you have yoga class and meditation early in the morning and then in the afternoon so allows you to enjoy the facilities (swimming pools and beach) in between. They are also organised talks sometimes, not when I was there though...
Meals are included, the food is vegetarian and very tasty.
You have different types of yoga styles to practice, you don't need to be an expert, I am a beginner but I managed to enjoy them without feeling overwhelmed or intimated.
I loved the atmosphere and I made friends since the start.
I am going to make this my yearly thing now! I will suggest thought, that will be even cooler if there were excursion to explore the island as I left without doing so but I will comeback so never mind.
With the aryuveda package you get in addition a oil massage, initial consultation and a follow up on top, so I will recommend to choose that one instead of just the yoga/meditation program.

Location, the teachers and staff, rooms, classes, cleanliness. Would definitely go back. Restaurant food really good, the BetterLife food menu alright. Really liked the retreat area, it feels like you're in the middle of the jungle and the open Shala which makes you integrate your practice with nature.

All classes are fairly gentle and restorative.
I've been doing yoga for a while and enjoyed the elevated level of the classes. But I wouldnt recommend it to first time yogis as teachers tend not give detailed introductions in the poses and yoga. You need to ask for advice and help and than all teachers are happy to assist you. They just don't offer it by themselves.
The resort itself is awesome. The staff is very friendly, the beach and pool areas are large and very well maintained. I was staying in a dorm which is absolutely fine. The rooms are cleaned every day and towels changed.

"Life changing experience <3"
Loyfa is a beautiful resort with 2 swimming pools, a private beach, 2 Yoga Shalas and amazing bungalows. Rochelle (Manager of the Yoga-Retreat) is such a sweet person and welcomed me when I arrived.. I immediately felt calm and relaxed the minute I arrived at that beautiful place..all classes were great. My favorite classes are the restorative classes and the amazing Nidra meditation in the small Shala. All teachers were very caring, professional and patient. As a beginner I felt very safe and comfortable. The Retreat is great for Beginner but also for advanced.. the teacher always give options for both. The Food was super healthy and tasty. What I really liked about the resort is that is has the beach and pool but also a lot of plants so you get the feeling of living in a jungle and at the beach at the same time.. the big swimming pool is great for a workout in between classes. Close to the resort are many nice beaches and cafes to hang out.

"Lovely stay at Loyfa Betterlife Retreats!"
My experience at Loyfa Betterlife Retreats helped me to achieve pure relaxation of the mind and body. The beautiful environment provided the ideal space, allowing me to forget about the hustle and bustle of the world and to concentrate on reviving my inner strength and refreshing my being. From the lush, quiet pathways leading to the beach, spacious outdoor yoga hall, and to the secluded meditation shalla, all the way to my comfortable, clean, and inviting room, there is a touch of peace in every corner. I thoroughly enjoyed the many yoga classes offered, and I especially enjoyed my yoga nidra meditation experience with Rochelle! Her calming voice and relaxing techniques truly cleared my mind of all the excessive thoughts I was holding onto, setting the tone for my time there. I also experienced a top notch, thai oil massage that helped me to release the many tensions in my body. The restaurant provided nourishing food every meal and in between I was very happy to recieve unlimited hot teas whenever desired. I am already wanting to book another stay!

I had an amazing time on the Inner walk programme and staying at loyfa.
The facilities at loyfa are amazing both for yoga, Meditation and general relaxation by the pool or on the beach.
The instructors are really good and helpful.
The 5 nights spent there have really helped me find some new insights from within, whilst the instructors have taught me a wealth of information, throughout the week. I feel rested, recharged and ready to continue with the good habits that I established during my retreat.
A truly unforgettable experience, couldn’t have wished for anything else!

For me it was a really nice retreat where i was able to calm down and get a new focus on my live and how to deal with it. Yoga here was more to find back to the roots then really advanced movements. Over all i'm more than satisfied with this new kind of program. The kitchen here is good specially the Thai kitchen where they even use products from there own farm healthy, fresh and Yummy.

"Peaceful retreat from the world"
I just loved my time at BetterLife. Wow what a beautiful place!! Right on the beach with a huge yoga shala surrounded by amazing nature. I felt relaxed straight away. I thought the classes were incredible. I've done a bit of yoga back home but these classes were much more focused on being aware of myself, my breathing and my body. I guess I've mainly done yoga for fitness, but this is not like that at all.
I learn't quite a bit about breathing and how this can really help me with stress. It was the first time I tried Nidra. It was amazing and I really want to continue this practice now.
I would highly recommend this as place to do yoga and to relax. They just opened so there weren't too many people in the classes yet. This was an added bonus really. I got lots of attention from all the beautiful teachers. I really wish them all the best as they grow. I will definitely be back.
Oh one more thing.. the swimming pools. One of them is long enough to to lengths. That was so nice to swim after yoga. Wow..!!

"Uitstekende prijs kwaliteit "
Fijne verwelkoming, je voelt je direct onderdeel van een retreat. Goede kamers met comfortabele bedden. Fijne atmosfeer, yoga tussen de tropische geluiden. Bijna alle yoga lessen waren kwalitatief goed. Goed ontbijt. Lux resort met faciliteiten waar je gebruik van kunt maken. Heerlijk om rustig bij te komen.

"Tolles Yoga Retreat"
Die Yoga Classes waren super! 2-3x am Tag von unterschiedlichen Lehrern und verschiedene Stile, es war immer perfekt. Die Thai Massagen sind super gut.
Ayurveda Package auch sehr zum empfehlen.
Perfekt für Alleinreisende, da viele Frauen dort alleine hinkommen & man schnell Kontakte knüpft.
Die Lage des Retreats direkt am Meer ist traumhaft, ein magischer Ort zum Kraft tanken. Ich würde auf jeden Fall wiederkommen!
