The accommodation at Suan Sati is simple yet comfortable, perfect for yogis. The bamboo construction connects you to the local building style with this environmentally friendly material. You have the choice of either the longhouse dorm or a bungalow. The center has shared toilets and hot water showers located conveniently in the center of its mini-village.

The dormitory sleeps 8 comfortably with storage for your bags and items under the custom-built wooden bed frames. Fans keep things cool from the high ceilings, bedside tables provide a place for your personal items, and electrical sockets and reading lights for each bed invite you to read that next chapter. All this and the most comfortable mattresses around.

The bamboo bungalows feature high ceilings, wall fans, stylish mosquito nets, rattan bedside tables, spacious balconies, and lush beds to rest your body after those challenging yoga sessions. These are the perfect retreat after a long day of training the body and mind. The bungalows are shared between two guests grouped together by gender whenever possible.

This retreat is an immersion into yoga, meditation, Buddhism, and community living. Suan Sati welcomes beginners up to advanced students who want to deepen their practice, spend some quiet time in nature, and give themselves some self-care and much-needed relaxation. The retreat features twice daily yoga and Vipassana meditation guided by qualified teachers, simple yet comfortable accommodation, delicious home cooked Thai food, and community vibes.

  • William Hardy

    Will founded Suan Sati as a lifestyle that would allow himself and others to live the practice and not only visit it. Buddhist meditation, yoga, and permaculture are integral parts of his path, and the opportunity and responsibility to share these things with others in a community setting led him to take on this project. Will is always on site tending the gardens, leading meditation, and sneaking bananas, but he always has time for a chat and a laugh with new friends.

  • Lisa

    Yoga Alliance RYT 200 (Yoga)

    For Lisa, yoga is practicing body awareness and connecting with the deeper self. Yoga opened up a whole new world for her; a world of transformation, acceptance, connection, and the direct knowledge of a higher power, without having to label or define it. One key point for her that leads to a healthy, balanced, and holistic lifestyle is the certainty that there is a vital force within and around our body that keeps us alive, constantly flowing. Every breath, every heartbeat deserves to be honored, on and off the mat. She has completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training in Goa, India.

Suan Sati is located in a small village 40 minutes outside of Chiang Mai, nestled in the foothills of northern Thailand's mountains.

    Review by Hari Vergara from Singapore

    Grounding and balanced

    CONS Cons: I didn't particularly like the spiders, but that's a personal fear.

    PROS Pros: I particularly enjoyed how before ever meal, we came together and shared a moment of silence to give thanks. The yoga and meditation practices were more challenging than others but the instructors did a good job of guiding the class through each step. As a yoga student, I would highly recommend the private yoga sessions and physiotherapy sessions in order to improve a personal practice. Will and Lisa have created a truly magical sanctuary to reconnect with oneself.

    Amazing experience

    CONS Cons: Lots of mosquitos so bring lots of bug spray!

    PROS Pros: The place is amazing. Very relaxing and a beautiful setting. The yoga and meditation is brilliant and there are many workshops to keep you entertained as well. The food is all vegan and is incredible (speaking as a meat eater) and everything is very ecological. I met some wonderful people here and didn't want to leave. Very cleansing.

    Back to Life

    PROS Pros: Life changing experience! So much love and attention goes into making this place a gorgeous slice of heaven on this Earth. From the classes expertly and mindfully led, to the delicious food lovingly prepared each day; the fun workshops and 'extras' the teachers go out of their way to provide, to the meticulous care for the environment exacted in every way possible, it was a perfect 2 weeks. Go for longer if you can. Everyone there with me extended their stay as long as they could! Can't wait to come back again!
