Samahita’s total self-care program has been developed to help you make the most of your stay and relieve stress. Arrive with a whole plan of therapies and treatments pre-booked and at a bundled value package price.

You get the stress-free benefit of the whole selection of yoga, breath, meditation, and fitness classes every day, all the great food, and a selection from refreshing massages, facials, scrubs and skin treatments.

YogaCoreCycle

YogaCoreCycle offers a complete holistic approach for your mind and body. Your health, fitness, and overall wellbeing are supported through a broad spectrum of physical activity, breathwork and mindful meditation practices in a dedicated and natural environment with life-giving delicious food.

Yoga

Yoga asana is incredibly effective at both strengthening and opening the body leading to balance across the different bodily systems. Yoga asana is of ancient origin, designed to aid:

  • The inner organs of the body, especially digestive system
  • Support and stimulate the spine
  • Improve joint mobility and their long-term durability
  • Enhance neuro-muscular activity that shows up as strength and flexibility

Of course, this is only possible if done correctly and practiced for a while. Our emphasis is on core support to aid inner organs first by managing the autonomic nervous system, and second, for equal impact on the spine.

In this process, mobility is key with strength and flexibility as good outcomes of the conditioning power of yoga asana. To help this development, we offer both guided dynamic and restorative classes as well as teacher-assisted self-practice.

Yoga asana classes

Dynamic core Vinyasa

A dynamic class that both challenges and conditions the body, breath and mind. We have developed three different sequences to target separate areas in practice. These sequences are spread across different days during the week so you get a more holistic effect on your body.

Skilled teaching makes sure modifications and degrees of intensity are offered for the different capacity of each person in class. You can expect to cover a variety of asanas across standing, sitting, forward and back bends, twists and inversions, as well as a movement base from sun salutations, and a variety of targeted core exercises.

Dynamic linear Ashtanga Vinyasa

Many flow, power and Vinyasa classes today have their roots in early Ashtanga practice. Paul was one of the few senior teachers of this in the past. Regular ashtanga is long and cumbersome but one of the benefits of having really learned it is the experience to know how to modify, adapt and change it.

In this class, you will still follow the regular linear routine of the system but infuse good detail and remove unnecessary heavy movements.

Restorative asana

Restorative, popularly these days called yin or similar names, can take many forms, some being very relaxation focused while others being slow-moving or long holding of positions to go deeper into restoration of the body.

This is why there are four different sequences offered throughout the week so you get a balance of approaches. Breathwork and some sitting towards the end of practice are also incorporated, where you can tune into the sound of the sea and the nature around you, center.

Core classes

Core sessions at Samahita are designed to get you in touch with your deep core muscles - to support your back, pelvis, and spine.

Why take core classes

  • Improve structural alignment
  • Improve whole body strength
  • Increase functional movement
  • Improve body awareness and kinesthetic sense
  • Improve static dynamic range of motion (mobility)
  • Increase core stability and joint durability
  • The breath always remains a focus as it guides the movements
  • Small groups give personal attention to help correct form
  • Strengthen the body from the inside out

Core foundational strength classes

The core developmental classes are either mixed with asana or stand alone and only use body-based approaches without equipment of any kind. This class helps identify the psoas muscle, work the key integral core muscles, and continue with classic grouping core exercises that amplify basic strength and stability. One can expect to work on:

  • Pelvic tilts
  • Sacro-iliac joint stabilizer twists
  • Pre-dishes
  • Standard dishes
  • Leg-raise dishes
  • Back body lifts
  • Plank variations
  • Mountain climbers
  • Yogi burpees

Core integrate strength classes

These classes cover key functional fitness principles in a high-intensity training format. Afternoon core classes incorporate fun, music based, dynamic exercises designed to increase strength and freedom in functional movement patterns, including rotational strength in the core, hips, shoulders and glutes, by integrating foundational body-based core exercises with top of the range functional equipment including:

  • TRX
  • Bosu
  • UGI
  • Sliders
  • Kettlebells
  • Grids
  • Toners
  • Flexbands
  • Stability balls
  • Resistance bands
  • Redondo balls

Cycle

Indoor cycling (aka spinning) with a direct view of the beach is a fun, mega cardio, fat burning, sweat pumping, fitness building workout. You don’t need experience, just your desire to ride. Fortunately, you adjust the resistance and manage your intensity.

Samahita's dedicated cycle studio looks onto the beach and is stocked with Schwinn’s latest Carbon Blue cycle technology in bikes. In the morning, there is a silent-sunrise-cycle while in the afternoon it’s a music-infused upbeat ride.

Included excursions

Samahita Retreat offers complimentary weekly excursions including a boat trip to a nearby remote island with snorkeling, a temple walk, and transport to the Fisherman's Village street food market on Fridays.

Retreat location

Samahita Retreat is located on the south coast of Koh Samui, a tropical island in the Gulf of Thailand that still has long stretches of pristine beaches and unspoiled land. 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 regions 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 privately owned villas. As such, Samahita Retreat's beach is private and virtually undisturbed, creating a beautiful, peaceful setting for you to enjoy your Thailand yoga holiday and chosen wellness packages. The main shopping areas are still within easy reach, about fifteen to thirty minutes away by car or motorbike. Samahita Retreat's gentle setting inspires long, refreshing walks on the beach or through the meandering back roads.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Samui Airport (USM). Transfer from and to the airport is available for an additional cost of 31 USD.

Bangkok Airways and Thai Airways fly directly to Koh Samui from Bangkok. They operate flights every hour daily, and you can book your flights directly online. The first flight out is around 6 am and last flight is around 10 pm daily. One-way is around 4000 THB. Travel time is approximately one hour from Bangkok. There are direct also flights from Phuket, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Penang, and Hong Kong.

Arrival by ferry

For a more affordable route to Koh Samui fly from Don Muang Airport in Bangkok to Suratthani on the mainland and take the ferry.

From Suratthani Airport there are plenty of transfers (approximately 1 hour) to bring you by coach to the Ferry (1.5 hours). You arrive in Nathon, Koh Samui.

Arrival by train

Bangkok to Samui: Trains for Surathani (which actually stop in Phun Phin, 14 kilometers west of Surathani) leave from Bangkok’s Hualamphong station. The 6:20 pm (rapid) and the 7:15 pm (express) trains are most convenient, as they arrive at 5:28 am and 7 am, allowing you plenty of time to catch an 8 am boat to Koh Samui. The bus/ferry journey will be an additional three hours once you’ve arrived in Surathani. Songserm offers a joint ticket (train, bus, and boat) for around THB B1,300, which lands you in Koh Samui by 11 am.

The ferry journey from Donsak pier is 1 1/2 hours. Donsak is 30 minutes from Surathani. Tickets for the train can be booked at Bangkok Airport, Bangkok Railway Station, and many travel agencies in Bangkok. To purchase your train tickets in advance, Asia Discover Thailand can arrange for the tickets to be mailed or to be picked up at your Bangkok hotel. Allow at least one month before your departure date to arrange for train tickets.

Samui to Bangkok: Take the 2 pm boat from Nathon to the mainland, and a connecting bus will take you from the pier to the train station in Surathani. Tickets purchased from agents in Samui normally include the boat, bus, and train fares. The ticket is cheaper if you go to the station yourself, but there is a good chance the train will be fully booked as much as a week in advance.
