On this retreat, you will stay at Samahita Retreat in Koh Samui, Thailand. Koh Samui is a tropical island in the gulf of Thailand that still has long stretches of pristine beaches and unspoiled land. The island has the allure of a remote island paradise but with the accessibility of the region’s most popular destinations.

Situated on Laem Sor Beach, Samahita Retreat is surrounded by towering coconut trees in a quiet, spacious area with incredible sunrises and sunsets that play with the colors of the water, sand, and tropical fauna. Only a few hundred meters away is the well-known Laem Sor Pagoda, which houses the remains of Leung Poo Daeng, a realized monk. The only other structures in the area are privately owned villas. As such, the beach is private and virtually undisturbed, creating a beautiful and peaceful setting for you to enjoy.

As this side of the island is protected by a natural reef, there are only some parts of the year when the beach directly in-front of Samahita Retreat is high enough to swim. When the tide is low during the summer months, you might prefer to take long swims in the resort's saltwater swimming pool or swim out to deeper water through the boat channel.
