There are some cozy and beautiful accommodation options at Vikasa Yoga Retreat.

Standard Ocean Room

The Standard Ocean Room offers every convenience. Rest and recharge in a king-sized bed (or request two twins) and awaken to a sea view that will energize you for the day ahead. Step out onto your private balcony to enjoy the fresh island air, relax, and read a book or meditate and feel at one with the natural surroundings. A stay in one of ocean rooms is restful, relaxing, and inspiring.

Superior Garden View Room

The Superior Garden View Room offers the same comfort that the superior ocean room offers but you will have the view from the garden.

Standard Beach Bungalow

The Standard Beach Bungalows bring guests close to nature while providing every convenience. The rustic, clean, and comfortable surroundings feature a queen-sized bed and direct beach access. A private balcony allows you to take in one of Samui’s spectacular sunrises. Bungalows come with simple interior bathroom with hot shower, AC, mini fridge, and a safety box.

Superior Beach Bungalow

The Superior Beach Bungalows provide the same features as the standard ones with a little more space, upgraded king-sized bed (or request two twins), and the Vikasa Yoga Retreat's most spectacular sea views from its unobstructed balconies. It is a truly unique waterfront living experience.

Yoga Caves

Bridging the gap between a hotel room and an authentic Thai experience, the Yoga Caves are small but very comfortable rooms that offer sweeping views over the sea and rocks below. Relax on your comfy bed facing out over the ocean and take in one of the best panoramas on Koh Samui. Sleep, read, or meditate in peace. Modest in terms of size but still to high standards, the air-conditioned Yoga Caves offer a quiet, personal place to stay for individual travelers.

The yoga caves do not have en-suite bathrooms. There is a large shared and public restroom and shower facility located just behind the block of Yoga Caves. The showers have hot water and shampoo provided. A bathrobe is provided in each cave for your comfort.

Zen Bungalows

The Zen Bungalows are perfectly named, being eco-friendly, and traditional huts built with local and natural materials. They provide an opportunity to leave contemporary hotels behind and feel yourself become totally at-one with Koh Samui’s natural surroundings, with the stunning views from the cliff-top location right outside your door. Zen Bungalows offer queen size or single beds with mosquito nets and fans to keep you cool while using minimal energy.
