Fasting is the worlds most ancient healing mechanism. It triggers a wondrous cleaning process that reaches right down to every cell and tissue in the body. Fasting is one of the best cures for the imbalances and diseases that occur due to our busy modern day live styles and diet. A detox is an extremely effective way to deal with illnesses that conventional medicine cannot cure. Fasting and detoxing is also an excellent preventative method. As most diseases start in our digestive tract and organs.

The Orion Center is a retreat and healing center that offers personal attention and support through the fasting process. Our foremost attention is to the healing process of each individual, be it physical, emotional, or spiritual and we embrace the connection between each of these. With many years of experience in a plethora of healing techniques, we can advise which treatments will suit the particular needs of each cleanser. We also include a holistic therapy in each cleanse to energize you and aid in replenishing your ki, or vital energy, as we know how vital this is to detox process. Traditional Thai massages stimulate and release blockages along the energy lines in the body and detox yoga is included to revitalize you each morning and our detox massage will leave you feeling completely relaxed and at ease.

    "I stayed 3 nights at Orion and every single day I really thankful for everything that happened to me here. Very friendly service, "Peach", a staff who showed me around and gave me lots of information about class and food. The owner guy is generous, he gave me to try the new dessert (raw blueberry ice cream pancake and raw passion fruit cake), they are very tasty and yummy!!! Unbelievable that they did not contain any dairy products. The second day I joined the Hatha yoga class with teacher Ben, the class was fantastic. Good dynamic and energetic movement that strengthened my body and made my mind so lively after class. Teacher supported and helped me carefully to do another level that I've never accomplished before, I really appreciate!! So now I know my body can be more improved if I have a good teacher to guide and support me. After all, watching sunset here was explainable feeling, my mind found peace and love around. I thankful for everything <3"

    "Spent 1 full week doing yoga. Mostly ashtanga mysore with great support from Eva, complemented with yin yoga with seriously competent Bea. Add some meditation and a good hatha yoga session with Art, overall relatively intensive and enjoyable. Retreat and admin staff are very helpful. Good thing is flexibility. You can start and stop when you want. "

    "Rooms ok. I chose the simple bamboo bungalow because it was not too hot and enjoyed sleeping with the "window" open. In hot season AC necessary. Lots of local guest houses and resorts available. "

    "The restaurant, vegan and vegetarian: outstanding."

    "Some good local restaurants walking distance. I went to il baracuda, fresh fish. Very good. "

    "Also truly outstanding massage at Papaya massage. "

    "Would go back. "

    "ORION Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training, Reiki, Raw Food Cooking Classes the best!"

    "Besides the amabience, the sunsets, the amazing vegan/raw food and delicious smoothies, in the time i was there (november -april 2015/16) Orion offered a variety of yoga classes through the day.. everyday, from ashtanga to hatha/vinyasa to yin yoga and yoga nidra, reiki sessions, kirtan, sound healings and great massage is one of the most complete healing centers i've been to. Friendly and experienced staff.. YES...most of the teachers/healers at Orion will definitely inspire and motivate your practice in some way. I surely recommend to visit this jewel in the island, you will not want to miss it."

    "My time at Orion was fabulous. I did the 11 Day Detox and felt well supported and informed during the entire process. One of the detox consultants is always around if you have a question and during the daily detox meeting, sharing your experience with other detoxers and feeling their support is really motivating. The facilities are beautifully kept and clean, the vegan food is breathtaking and the staff are all lovely. The equipment is clean and well-organised. Orion has a special something, a unique atmosphere fed by the enjoyment and passion the staff have for their work. I especially enjoyed the wide variety of yoga courses taught by amazing teachers. I could feel my technique improving in leaps and bounds every day. There are also "extras" available - I did a transformational healing session and had truly life-changing revelations, as did everyone else who tried the session. Orion really is a place to let go of old wounds and pains and move forward into the new. Every single detoxer had shining eyes and skin at the end of their stay, as well as a lightened heart. To sum it up: if you are thinking of doing a course at Orion, book your flight right now and just go. I would go back in a heartbeat if I could. In terms of value, the detox program is a perfect blend of everything Orion has to offer at a very good price." website, edited

    "I bought the one week unlimited yoga pass for 2000 baht. It's a good deal if you want to commit to at least one class a day. They offer a nice variety of styles and I loved combining the morning Hatha flow classes with the evening Yin or Sunset Flow. The teaching styles were alignment and breath focused while still having a nice theme to focus in on. It was great to have lot's of time on my mat with teachers who seem to really love what they are doing! I can personally recommend Seulhee, Danielle and Ben. I enjoyed coming early for a juice or one of their amazing shakes or staying after for lunch. Not the cheapest, but well worth the money for what they have to offer!"

  • Review by a traveler

    "There are lots of wonderful things to say about this place and one or two things that could definitely be improved upon. Firstly, I agree with a previous reviewer who said that the restaurant (though amazing) is way too busy at times to prioritize the needs of the people who are actually staying there and those undertaking one of the detox or yoga programmes. The main issue can be that there is no space to sit where food isn't being eaten. This means if you are detoxing you can't avoid food and this can drive you a little crazy. They really do need to section off a space at the retreat well away from the kitchen so that detox clients can chill out and chat to each other. The detox instruction I received was very hit and miss. However the good news is that there is a wonderful naturopath working there overseeing the detox programmes. She is called Natasha and she has excellent knowledge and advice and the 11am daily detox meetings, when she was taking them, were always excellent. However the bad news is that whilst I was there she was only working part time. The two very nice people who stood in for her unfortunately just didn't have the experience to do the job well enough. The info given was contradictory and unclear and more often than not purely subjective. There was no sense is them encouraging us to complete the programme and nothing inspirational or knowledgeable about their meetings (which is why people stopped attending them). I do feel when you are undertaking a massive health overhaul and not eating for 7 out of 11 days and doing two self administered colonics per day, that you need to feel secure, supported and surrounded by knowledgeable staff specifically trained in this method. The stand in nutritionist hadn't actually done the colonics and detox programme we were all following. Thank God for the days that Natasha was working! They need another like her. There is a kind of haphazard vibe to the whole place but there is a charm that goes with that too. The other office staff were nice enough and helpful. Not massively over friendly in the kitchen though but OK. "

    "Now...The yoga was fantastic! especially Antoine's classes. He really is the most excellent yoga teacher managing to integrate inspirational psychotherapy with a humourous twist as well as guiding us through the asanas. He is probably the best yoga teacher I have ever experienced. I also highly rate Naomi and Jewels who also had excellent classes. I Didn't connect at all with Ben's classes or Nicole. These were High Intensity with No real awareness of mixed ability or prior injuries and they felt much more mechanical (and even a little showy!). Do make sure you let them know of any injuries up front as they wont ask. The Kirtan was wonderful as was Jewel's reiki and Natasha's chakra balancing. All well worth paying extra for. Overall I had a wonderful time at Orion. I wouldn't personally stay on at Orion after the detox as there are much closer nicer and cheaper places to stay up the coast and you can always just drop in for the yoga classes when you want to and eat at the fabulous vegan restaurant. All in all, I had a life changing experience at this Centre and would highly recommend it to anyone thinking about going."

    "Orion is wonderful! I took a yoga teacher training in Orion in March 2016. The schedule and the program was nice, as well as the atmosphere. The additional classes on anatomy and kirtan were so enriching as well. Also the Orion restaurant is one of the best in this zone for the healthy vegan eating. I can trust that whatever I order in Orion is fresh, organic and natural."

  • Review by a traveler

    "Well I had been so looking forward to this trip and the yoga. Did not choose to do the detox as to be honest the food here is vegan and raw and I felt I detoxed from just eating from the wonderful cafe..which was amazing and every day could not wait to choose from the menu. Dominique was great as attended the raw cooking class and it really inspired me to continue once I got home..she is very helpful and will forward information to you. Not sure where I start with this review as so much to say so I shall put in categories: Cafe: Food is well prepared and fresh and the staff work very hard. Only downside is it is too busy for the residents as it is open from 9am-9pm to the public (aside from a couple of hrs in the afternoon)..So during the main meal times thou it was public and you could wait 20-30min for your meal or they would of run out of the popular dishes. It is obvious this cafe is the main source of income for this retreat so they have to decide if to have a separate kitchen and sitting area for the visitors away from what is suppose to be a 'healing retreat'..Other big issue is for those on the detox; seating area is so close to the cafe entrance and the food walking past and the other residents or visitors eating meals..this is so unprofessional..The detox programme is a great resource to this retreat but the complaints were it was very very difficult to relax or chat to other guests as the only area to sit was around the 'Cafe' and 'Food'... Yoga: Just awesome and without the food and yoga this really would not of been a great experience. All the teachers are experienced patient dedicated to giving each of their class's and students a wonderful yoga class. Naomi was just so gorgeous and a lovely young woman and I experienced Yin for the first time walking away feeling amazing. Antoine also was just brilliant and could of easily attended all his classes all of the time but Ben and Enya were also wonderful and I enjoyed their class's also. So yoga available for al all levels and is amazing!! Accommodation: Backpacking style I would say. Even the top end bungalows are not really what you expect very misleading on the website for what you are be given one grey looking towel with holes and one sheet??? Umm I did not expect to experience such basic amenities else I would of chosen a back packer style holiday. The 'Retreat': Do not expect a nice beach to sit by and swim each day however you can take a walk to the next cove and will find a sandy beach and clear water. I would not call this a 'Healing' retreat really! Not when you have kids swinging in hammocks or just being there??? There were two families with little ones and all of us guests were surprised that a 'Healing' retreat accommodates kids..this is not the place for them nor a place for people who had possibly traveled from as far as Europe to repair themselves from whether an illness, bereavement or just to unwind from a hectic professional job to have noise of crying kids with tantrums swinging around in the hammocks. Not to mention when on a detox with a banging head rumbling stomach trying to focus on just getting through an 11 day detox...ditch the kids keep to adults for sure."

    "A few of the earlier reviews left me feeling weary about coming to Orion, but I visited anyway and I am so glad I did. The yoga teachers (Jules & Antoine) are some of the best you will ever have the pleasure of being guided by if you visit. You will feel challenged but come out feeling alive, recharged and thirsty for more. Then there's the food. Wow! These guys know how to put together a good menu to suit everyone! Healthy, nutritious and incredibly nourishing not to mention great value for money. I chose not to stay in the Orion accommodation as there are so many amazing and peaceful places you can stay that are only a walk away. Lastly, I want to mention that the reception girls are incredibly welcoming and friendly. They were always willing to answer my many questions that I am very grateful for. Orion was the highlight of my stay and will certainly try to visit again next year. Many thanks! We hope to see you again next January. "

    "I feel totally blessed for booking my detox holiday at Orion! I booked for a 11 days detox and stayed in the dorm. It was a complete new experience for me to stay in the dorm, I was not able to adjust for the first 2 days as everything was completely alien to me including the colema! But gradually i felt happy that i stayed in the dorm, I met so many beautiful souls from around the world and my dorm mates were super encouraging!! as sometimes i just wanted to drop the whole detox thingy. But at the end of the whole detox program, i felt really Great, healthy Happy and really energetic! The dorm was cleaned everyday with all beds arranged, I was impressed by the Myanmar staffs working at Orion, humble and they do their best to help you. Well there were language issues but hey i was not England! ;) And also I was glad there was an introduction of the whole program and I have to say the staffs at Orion were very informative and answered all my curiosity :) A big Thank you to Dominique and Natasha! Lots of new knowledge on my digestive system! If you are heading down to Orion, you have to remember, it is an Tropical Island and mosquitoes and flies are part of the island. Also, Adjustment and Flexibility is needed here and that's what i have learnt, and you will definitely feel close to Mother Earth! love the beach yoga hall! overall it was a great experience living there and I will definitely head back again."

  • Review by a traveler from Vienna, Austria

    "I attended a 7-day yoga retreat at orion, which I would never do again like this. The whole package is more expensive than if you pay for all the food, yoga classes, massage and room extra. So my advice don't book a package, get a room nearby (for instance Loyfa Natural resort) and attend yoga classes, have lunch/dinner at orion. The accommodation at orion is much more expensive than in other places in that area, my room was disgusting, smelly, there was mold all over the curtains, which is definitely unhealthy, especially if you stay there for a retain. The owners should definitely renovate the rooms! Change the curtains, please! People who did colemas with a detox package, also complained about the hygienic conditions for that. The staff though was really nice, the yoga teachers (especially Marta) were great, the food is really delicious. So whenever I come back to Koh Phangan, I would definitely go to Orion to take some yoga classes and have food, but I would never stay there again! It really was a loss of money. "

    "I spent 25 days doing a yoga retreat at Orion in September 2015, and I loved it! The two resident yoga teachers are actually the best teachers I've had. Marta is really good at always pushing you a bit further, and especially the Rocket Yoga classes were so challenging, but also so much fun! In Kat's classes I learned more than I've done in years of practicing yoga earlier. She has a lot of useful tips and "yoga hacks" :) She also makes the classes fun and different every time (I stayed for a long time, so I know!). I went on to do a yoga teacher training in India after my stay at Orion, and what I learned at Orion was super helpful. I would absolutely recommend the yoga here! "

  • Review by Alena from Hong Kong, China

    "I had a lovely time here at Orion in Koh Phangan. Coming from a city background, i must admit it took a few days to adjust to this vast jungle! But when I did, it melded in perfectly with the 7 day detox I signed up for. Orion offers an environment for one to have silence within and also a lively and loving atmosphere when you want. So either or, both parts of yourself can be satisfied here. As with any fasts from things, they can be challenging but there is a community of support during difficult and happy times. What is unique about Orion is that they offer reiki sessions along with fasts. Reiki is a universal force energy healing modality, if you haven't tried one - you should! I was certified on all levels here and trust that it is the best place to do so. I learnt so much here on my own as well and I met with a very loving group of souls to connect with. Don't forget to save time to enjoy the best vegetarian menu options here and the yoga classes :) "

    "I have completed the 11-day detox at Orion staying at the dorm. The experience was beyond anything I could have expected and I am sure I will be back as I feel like I've left my new little family behind at Orion."

    "Quickly on negative comments on construction: the new yoga hall was nearly finished when I left (end of Oct 2015) and I believe the kitchen extension is being finished before the busy season starts in Dec. The noise is really not intrusive at all."

    "Orion is primarily a community: The restaurant is well-known around the island for amazing vegan and raw foods and many come back for lunch or dinner. (I am an every day meat eater and love my cheese and yoghurt, but I would rather go vegan with Orion's menu!!!) You end up seeing the same people day after day, yoga teachers, those staying at Orion, and the "locals" around the island - everyone is open and friendly. You naturally end up in conversations, find out what to do on Koh Phangan, or easily skip the small talk and talk about the real stuff, even if you are an introvert like me. Or you can just as easily be with yourself and your thoughts and not feel bothered. There are plenty of spaces to join in, observe, or withdraw."

    "People: I was very happy to find a good balance of "spirituality" and "practicality" at Orion (these are not great terms but let me explain, and apologies for more stereotypes). I was happy to not find any "preaching hippies" here - the ones who are so off in their world, and so critical of everything in the real world, you really just need them to stop talking. In contrast, I found everyone at Orion to be inclusive, mindful and open-minded. The permanent staff here are incredibly knowledgeable and yes, opinionated, but for me - when opinion is based on facts, I am more than happy to listen and learn, and I've learned a lot!"

    "Location: Everything you need is within a 10 minute walk: beach (at Phangan Cove), pool (at resort just next door), many very yummy restaurants, tons of massage places, laundries, shops & food, short and long-term accommodation options, as well as Samma Karuna and Agama Yoga just up the road. Which makes the area sound busy but it's anything but. It's quiet and local with a very laid back vibe. And of course there are plenty of places to hire a scooter to go exploring further around the island."

    "Yoga: The yoga schedule is nice and varied with something for everyone. Ashtanga, two Hatha classes with more meditation focus vs slightly more strenuous, Pranayama Individual classes are 300 THB per class, which is standard, or there are packs of 10 etc or of course the Yoga and Detox all-inclusive programmes. I was surprised to love all the teachers but one (but didn't need to go to that class anyway) - and I am pretty picky about my yoga teachers! Everyone was experienced, knowledgeable and brought wonderful mindful energy to the classes."

    "Detox: I nearly broke my head trying to figure out where to do detox on Koh Phangan and I am so incredibly happy to have found Orion. Impeccably organised programme that has been running for many years; amazing people to support you every step of the way, and lots of people on the same journey with you to share all the details (if you want). Orion Detox is the best value for money as well."

    "Accommodation: I chose to stay in the dorm, which was part of the Detox package, and thought I could move into a private room if I needed to, but ended up living in the dorm the entire stay. There were 5 girls and we had no issues with sleep time, showers, noise or anything else. Everyone is here for the same thing - Detox or Yoga retreat - so you end up on the same schedules with the same energy levels. I will absolutely be back to Orion as it was the ideal experience to relax and reset my body and mind. It's the kind of a place you can envision yourself living for a few weeks.. or months :)"

    "I did the 11 day detox here at Orion. Wow. Wow. Wow. I came to just physically cleanse my body and left with SO much more!!! The detox along with the daily yoga and massage and optional Theta Healing treatment I did ended up being such a spiritual, mental, soulful, and physical cleansing. I just felt so clear and healthy and super connected afterwards. Big Thanks to the Awesome staff namely Dominique, Derek, Malka, and Jet!!!! Dominique is so incredibly knowledgeable and so generous in sharing her wealth of knowledge about nutrition and diet (included is a consultation in the 11 day detox). She graciously answered all of my questions as I am interested in completely changing my entire diet after this cleanse. Everyone is so friendly, easy-going and super nice to chat with. Malka and Leon were both amazing yoga instructors LOVED their classes. Thank You Guys Soooooooo Much We LOVED it! Big Hugs and Love to Orion!"

    "My time at Orion Healing has been an amazing experience. I chose the 11 day alchemy retreat, which includes Reiki 1 & 2 and I can highly recommend it. The staff is super friendly and are always willing to answer any of your questions. I did read the reviews about the front staff before I chose to do my detox at Orion but can't relate to that at all. Thank you, Ari, Daliah, Derek, Monique, Malka. Leon & Jet for this wonderful experience!"

  • Review by a traveller from Vienna, Austria

    "I just came back from my 11-day detox program at Orion and as also during my first time there 2 years ago, I absolutely enjoyed my stay and the program itself. For me detox program is perfectly designed and it helped a lot in all my goals, as to clean and revitalise my body, loos some weight, do yoga and relax. I stayed in a bungalow hut at the premises, its simple, but clean and has big comfy bed. If you want your room/bungalow be cleaned, just leave a key before morning yoga and the place would be cleaned by noon. Facilities for detox are great, nice yoga hall with the view, I liked sauna a lot. And the most important - the atmosphere in the restaurant, so relaxing and laid-back.Staff is very friendly, Dominique is absolutely amazing, positive and helpful, and ready to answer any of your questions at all times. Foot is absolutely the hit, so tasty and so healthy. The only thing still needs to be improved is the politeness to guests requests from the guy that takes order at the restaurant. Two times I was ordering something, I did not have small money, and his answer was just no, no change, which made me feel guilty I have only bigger bill. At the last evening I wanted to order food for the next day to take with me (as I was leaving early in the morning) and leave it in a fridge, but he just said NO, without sorry or explanation. It's rather a small note for improvement that did not spoil my stay!Thank you Orion again for the great stay and I will be coming back!"

  • Review by a traveller from Colorado, USA

    "Overall, I left feeling I had a five star experience based on how happy and healthy I feel, but there are surely improvements that could be made because I feel orion has the potential to be truly amazing. I stayed in the dorm and the ac was broken- I luckily was able to sleep at night, but it was quite hot in there. When I first arrived, I was shown around by a staff member who was allegedly fired the next day, but she gave me none of the information that I needed nor did anyone seem to know which beds were available- not the warmest welcome. However, the guests staying at the resort and the amazing yoga staff (especially alon, Malka and luke) quickly changed my mind about the place and was able to get past that initial disappointing welcome.I opted into some of the programs offered: the sunset gong meditation, rebirthing, Reiki, ear candling, mud wrap and Thai massage- all amazing except the thai masseuse I had several times was terrible- she was barely paying attention. I had a dozen thai massages elsewhere in thailand and this was not what it's meant to be like. Everyone else at the resort agreed...something must be done about her.I rented a motorbike in town (so cheap!) to explore the island which made my detox experience a lot easier.The food at orion is really good - lots of healthy options - not always served at the temperature to suit my American tastes, but the staff was always willing to give me some ice.The staff at Orion are mostly vegan (plant based diet, as they say) and definitely preach this way of life, which is fine, but some people I talked to seemed a bit annoyed by it.I think that with some tweaks with the staff this place has the potential to be so much more than it already is- and it's already pretty fabulous."

    "I spent in Orion Healing Center nearly 2 weeks, on 11 Day Alchemy Detox, plus extra two nights after. I would have definitely stayed longer if I just had more time!The staff was friendly, and trying to answer any question one might have related to the detox, organization or anything else. The food is amazing. I tried craniosacral therapy, Theta Healing, as well as re-birthing and Reiki course, and would recommend all the healers. The whole detox has been just life changing."

  • Review by a traveller from Stirling, UK

    "I spent 12 days at ORION taking part in their 11 days detox programme and then an extra night at the end. I wished I had more time, by the end I wanted to stay but had to come home to Scotland.After travelling SE Asia for nearly two months I felt like I needed a reset for my body after all the beer and fried foods. I chose Orion on recommendation of friend and wasn't disapointed. The programme was amazing the support from the staff went above and beyond I went through a very deep healing process and felt supported every step of the way.I stayed in the 10 bed-dorm which was clean and comfortable and I made lots of great friends.The food (when I finally went off my fast )was incredible. I loved all the juices too. The yoga teachers were amazing and I felt my connection to my body and breath deepen in my time there.There is a wealth of great teachers and healers, I especially enjoyed my Theta healing, reiki and woderful bellydance with Mina. Having lived and worked at a spiritual retreat centre for 4 years I know what I search for energetically in a place- somewhere that holds the energy of unconditional love and acceptance and is full of laughter and joy. Orion is all of that and more. I will definitely be back. Much love to Dominique, Tammy and all those at Orion."

  • Review by a traveller from Cape Town, South Africa

    "The 11 day detox, followed by a 14 day 'healthy living' program, was an incredibly transformational time for me. I've always been active and a relatively healthy eater, but arrived at Orion in a pretty dismal state health wise, and my time there not only got me feeling healthier and more energetic than ever (in such a short space of time), but also completely changed the way I look at food and nutrition.Dominique in particular was a wealth of nutritional advice and education, and was passionate and inspiring in equal doses, and along with Derek and their colleagues, made guests feel very welcome.The food was absolutely incredible, and what I would do to have that kitchen in my back yard all the time...almost makes one want to move to the island just for that!Along with a vegan diet and a detox program, yoga, Reiki, and Theta Healing where also all new experiences, and Shakti, Irene, Melody and Sara were all wonderful yoga teachers, Richard really made me comfortable with my introduction to Reiki and is highly recommended, and Kathai (sp?) a true revelation on the Theta front.A genuinely life changing visit."

    "I did the 11 day Alchemy detox/yoga retreat. The experience was life changing. The location was beautiful ad peaceful. The perfect place to think and change your life. I learned so much from yoga, to alternative healing to how to properly feed my body from a plant based diet. The fast itself was not too hard as all of the guests were fasting at the same time, so we could support each other.The program is well planned and laid out. The staff are great, but the kitchen staff was slightly unfirendly most of the time. Once the fast was over, the food at the Cafe was incredible. Learning yoga with Akari (instructor) was of great value to me. Hope to come back to Orion again next year!!!." website, edited

    "The best birthday gift to myself. You sit by the sea and drink your coconut, yoga is done with natural surroundings, and the garden is full with beautiful exotic flowers. Daliah is an incredible yoga teacher. I really hope I can find someone like here back home! While I came to Phangan to do a detox, I could not possibly leave without being initiated to Reiki. I feel that has been quite a milestone in my life. I would like to thank Ari for being a great master. Thank you for a brilliant experience. Unforgettable. "
