"Life changing yoga retreat"

The location is amazing, the classes a instructors a beyond fantastic, the food absolutely crazy! Pricey yes but, totally worth it, the vibe all around is something different, arrived here over worked, stayed four days and left completely regenerated, with new energy and a new world View!

Absolutely recommended to anyone going through some life struggles to relax and find some new light

"Overall an amazing retreat "

The yoga schedule was perfect. It had a lot of options and variety so you could really create your perfect schedule. I took classes from 3 different instructors while there (none of which are on the drop down list) and they were great! Each had their own style and I really enjoyed the variety. If your priority is yoga with an absolutely stunning view as well as vegetarian meals, this would be the perfect retreat for you.

"Great yoga teachers, view and food but lacked atmosphere"

The teachers are really great here. I felt very satisfied with their classes and the variety of different styles. I also went to meditation and tried pilates (which turned out to be my favourite class actually)! The view is stunning, and when the construction is finished the serenity will be great. Could also come here just to eat, I loved the fresh healthy food, and there was so much variety, it is always changing and so vibrant and colorful. They also let me check out a bit later which was really appreciated.

"Short stay but enjoyed every moment."

The yoga lessons where amazing. Best I've had in my life. Location of the yoga sala beautiful. View to the sea. They provide mosquito repellent, water, small towel, yoga mats, so very nice. Wish i would've stayed at least 5 days. Instructors are super nice people and i loved the breakfast buffet.

"Great retreat"

If you're looking for a place to help you slow down and unplug for a while, look no further. Vikasa is a serene mix between botanical garden, mural gallery and beach resort, and helps eliminate most of the day to day distractions that many of us regularly face. After 6 days we left feeling more grounded, calm and positive. Overall a great experience.

"A Soul Paradise !"

Vikasa is a place very well designed in all the experience. Used to travel and to test different kind of yoga places, this one in fir’me One of the best. Costa and his team find the perfect balance with retreat and premium confort. Yoga in the white shala with an amazing view is of course the best of all you can find in Vikasa. Class are really good and teachers are always very professional . Life cafe is great too and you always feel a quiet atmosphere during your stay.

Ning Cheung

from Hong Kong, November 2018

Everyday yoga, great food and stunning seaview made my perfect holiday. Glad that I got to enjoy the lovely sunshine a lot before it rained on my last day. Friendly and helpful team around the retreat. Room was clean and cozy. I came for yoga but also explored Pilates, Acro, Gong Meditation, Singing Bowls and Candle Gazing. Classes were good. Serge, who teaches Pilates and Acro, is especially amazing. Loved the Thai massage too!

"An idyllic yoga retreat "

All the instructors are super knowledgeable and skillful. They are great teachers, especially Mike. He has a very good, positive energy. My bungalow was at the end of the shoreline. Great view of the ocean. Food was fantastic. The only downside was it rained on my last 2 days but I would definitely come back to the resort if I had another opportunity to visit Thailand.

"Yoga retreat "

1. I like its quietness facing to the ocean

2. You should go check out the swimming pool it's really nice

3. It's just so chillaxing when your having breakfast in Life Cafe

4. I like my room is just a few steps away from the white gala (place for yoga)

5. I like all the people around - so open up and talk to any of them

"Great Retreat - Accomodation needs some work"

The food was amazing with excellent variety daily. The yoga was excellent but quite advanced. The mediation work shops and tantra workshops were really interesting. The instructors were lovely and very helpful. Especially enjoyed yin class. While expensive the spa was very nice.

"Blissful week "

The classes offer a good variety and the teachers are all amazing! I had a great time and would come back anytime.

Besides yoga my highlight was the yummy food that is included as well as the a la carte in the restaurant. So good!

Massages are a bit pricey compared to other places on the island, but definitely worth it. Great atmosphere and vibes over all at Vikasa.

"stage yoga débutant "

j'ai passé un très bon moment au sein de VIKASA Yoga, le personnel est efficace et sympathique. Je suis débutante yoga, et j'ai vraiment beaucoup apprécié ce stage. Je ne savais pas si cela me plairait c’est pour cela que je n'avais pris que 5 jours et j'ai regretté de ne pas avoir pris un stage plus long.

Le programme des cours est top, vous pouvez choisir les cours qui vous intéresse en fonction du planning.

La salle de cours "blanche" face à la mer est parfaite pour les cours de yoga.

Le brunch est fantastique, comme tous les repas: des produits frais, des jus originaux , une grande variété de produits au choix, du sucré, du salé, du continental et du thaï. On se sent revigoré par la nourriture proposé très saine.

le lieu est magnifique, avec une vue sur la mer.

J'ai testé le spa avec le forfait de 3 massages "cellulite". Le personnel est très gentil, le lieu est très paisible et très propre.

"Wunderschöner & ruhiger Resort mit köstlichem Essen"

Ich als Nicht-Vegi war insbesondere von den vielseitigen leckeren (teilweise auch veganen) Gerichten begeistert! Das Morgenbuffet wie auch die warmen Gerichte am Abend waren immer sehr frisch und köstlich! Vikasa liegt an einer sehr ruhig Lage mit wunderschönen grünen Aussicht. Sehr idyllisch und genau richtig, um abzuschalten. Auch die Yoga Teachers haben mich sehr überzeugt. Meines Erachtens sind die besser als der Durchschnitt.

Agl

from Germany,

We stayed fin Vikasa for Yoga Vacation and had a wonderful time. The Place is absolutely fantastic, great view and very well equipped. From everywere in vikasa there is an unbelieveable oceanview. The accommodation was lovely and with a balcony overlooking the ocean. The food was delicious and the buffets have a great selection of healthy and tastfull dishes.

The rooms have a fabulous view, spacious and clean. The staff are unbelievably accommodating and pleasant. Expecially Jun is very helpfull and tried all to give us a good time.

We can recommend the place absolutly!

Janine Werner

from Germany,

I stayed for 5 days Yoga Vacation and had such a beautiful time. The Resort is absolutely fantastic, great location, simple charming Bungalows and very well equipped. The Yoga and Meditation classes were great, especially the ones in the early morning with sunrise on the Yoga platform with unbelieveable oceanview. The food was amazing, massages very good and all staff all times very helpful and friendly. I will come back for sure one day.

Heaven Howes

from United Kingdom,

I loved the yoga, the location, and the atmosphere of Vikasa.

The instructors were so knowledgeable and offered adjustments when needed and the staff always greeted you with warm customer service. The Life Cafe was my favorite part! Wholesome and clean food to compliment the experience.

Vikasa was such a great time and I highly recommend it for anyone who wants that exotic getaway with deeper intentions.

The only reason I gave it a 9 was because of all the stairs or difficult hills at the resort. While I personally had no problems with this, I fear that it may make it problematic for people who struggle with injuries or certain disabilities from being comfortable going to and from their room.

Again, I loved my stay and would return any day!

Astrid

from Switzerland,

It was absolutely amazing, definitely a 10! I would have been easy for 1-2 weeks, great location, great food, great hours / offer and very friendly staff - feel completely comfortable, recharged, balanced and healthy! And since then do yoga and to keep me healthy and balanced.

Mehrnaz Baranriz

from California,

My yoga retreat was amazing and Vikasa is absolutely beautiful especially the yoga shala. I am not vegetarian and the food was so delicious, I literally still dream about their cashew cheese, fresh juices and porridge. The yoga instructor's are top notch, management team is friendly and the walk to the yoga shala every morning was breath taking. I would not recommend staying in the yoga cave if you are a light sleeper (garden bungalows have much more privacy and less noise). You can hear the chairs and noise from the main dining hall and it's very loud. In addition, they have daily or half day excursions which I highly recommend. I did a half day excursion to the water fall with Ronnie and a few other people and we had a blast. Definitely this place deserves a 10. I will be back for sure.

Renata

from Brazil,

I stayed almost 3 days at Vikasa Yoga Retreat and I had a good surprise regarding the classes. I have been practicing yoga for the last 5 years and I can say that I experienced some postures that I had never listened before. The first class in the morning (with pranayamas, meditation and postures) were the best ones! It is indeed the high point of being at Vikasa.

Another great point that I would like to highlight its the food, I have beento 8 places in Thailand during this trip and for sure the food at Vikasa it was the tasteful and colorful one, all fresh and delicious. The staff it was also very thoughtful always trying to serve as the best manner.

The only contradictory thing about all this is related to the cleaning and maintenance of the chalets/rooms. Unfortunately the chalet that I stayed was not in good maintenance (with wall showing hole covered with concrete, not painted, old etc.). The other thing was related to cleaning: the chalet and yoga room were dirty, even for Asian standards. The floor at the yoga room was sticky, at the chalet I saw some small things that showed that the place was not cleaned properly like: dirty floor, dust and dirty lid. I even not slept well my last night due to a mice that ran all night at the roof making a huge noise. It's really a shame because I loved the purpose of the retreat about uniting yoga + relaxation. Even though I highly recommend Vikasa for yoga lovers, I hope Vikasa staff will change the cleaning conditions of the place in the near future :)
