The ideal setting for Thailand holiday packages, it is only about an hour away from Bangkok by air, an hour plus from Singapore, and three hours from Hong Kong. Koh Samui 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 and 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 villas privately owned. As such, our beach is private and virtually undisturbed, creating a beautiful, peaceful setting for you to enjoy your Thailand yoga holiday and chosen wellness packages.

For deep swimming beaches, the north and east of Samui have less reef protection with Chaweng’s powdery sands drawing in vast crowds of tourists from around the globe. A hub of shopping, nightlife, and entertainment, this bustling metropolis feels like a million miles from the tranquility of Samahita Retreat’s quiet beach. Silver Beach near Lamai is still reminiscent of old Samui with a few family run resorts and restaurants and is a favorite for swimming beach with the locals.
For holiday trinkets and gifts, visit the peaceful and traditional port town of Nathon or the busier bustle of Lamai. The island’s largest tourist hub is Chaweng which is home to miles of stalls and stands selling everything from carved elephants to buckets and spades. For beautiful high quality hand crafted Buddha statues from Thailand and Burma, visit Double Dutch next to Big Buddha Temple.
Feel free to barter and be aware that many of the clothes and handbags are counterfeited - hence the low prices.

These colorful market events combine delicious hawker food, fun shopping, live music, and performance:
