To lose weight and keep it off requires the impetus for change and an understanding of how and what to do to keep it up. Weight loss can be achieved through a restricted diet but often the weight comes back on later. To have the opportunity in a dedicated and natural setting to change the basics in your diet that can keep you at your desired weight after having completed the program is the aim in transitioning you to a healthier and more vital life. Samahita Retreat offers you a complete program that covers diet and activity, in a natural setting, with years of experience and knowledge to serve.
Samahita was purpose-built to function as a retreat center dedicated to your vitality, well-being, and relaxation. The variety of private and shared room options reflect that. The rooms are set back from the main beachfront facilities perfect for quiet contemplation and relaxation.
The eco-friendly buildings make use of cross-ventilation, natural lighting, rainwater harvesting, and offer both mosquito screens, fans, and air conditioning. They have rooms for the single traveler, couples or friends, as well as loft-style accommodation that is ideal for families or two people sharing. Regardless of which room you stay in, the beach, pool, and practice spaces are seconds away.

Samahita’s weight-loss program is focused on a long-term change to put in place and maintain a healthy lifestyle and continued supportive practices. They offer you a healthy weight loss diet that is both nutritious and delicious, guide you through a manageable exercise program, re-educate you on how to eat, and help you to address the cause of the weight gain.
While on the program, the aim is to balance the combination of activity, relaxation, therapy, and diet with supplements. The retreat, both in concept and natural setting, is designed to revitalize the guests and guide them into an empowered life.
Samahita uses a custom-formulated Ayurvedic herbal mix, plenty of teas, broths and juices, veggies and fruit where appropriate, supplements, and a mix of rejuvenating, detoxing, and weight supportive therapies and practices that involve the body, breath, and mind.
In order to empower you and guide this as a long-term approach, they emphasize your total commitment and participation to learn and engage, at your pace naturally, so you can take these tools and transform your own life. Anything of value and worth doing needs effort – your weight, and by proxy your health, are calling out for you to apply the changes.
People’s backgrounds, diet, and lifestyle differ as does one’s experience on a program. Your initial consultation and daily guest check-in provide an opportunity to adjust your program, taking your needs, goals and preferences into account, and balancing them with the professional expertise to provide you with a supportive weight management experience. They also offer you post-program guidelines to help you transition into regular balanced eating.
Samahita Retreat offers complimentary weekly excursions including a boat trip to a nearby remote island with snorkelling, a temple walk, and transport to the Fisherman's Village street food market on Fridays.
