Vikasa Yoga Retreat on Koh Samui, Thailand is a boutique yoga resort and organic restaurant. Vikasa offers an inspiring yoga environment created by Konstantin Miachin. Koh Samui island is a tropical dream destination in Thailand, the land of smiles. Vikasa Yoga Resort Koh Samui is located on the most beautiful part of Koh Samui, between Chaweng and Lamai. You are just a 10 minute tuk tuk ride away from either Chaweng or Lamai.
Koh Samui is also an ideal place for exploring yoga due to the outstanding natural beauty of the island. Most of Koh Samui is still considered unspoiled and unpolluted. Time on Koh Samui is an opportunity to relax, unwind, explore, and focus on yourself. Enjoy the natural energy of palm trees, white sand, purple sunsets, turquoise waters, dense jungle, and exotic waterfalls. Despite being so easily accessible, Samui remains an idyllic island in the sun.
We are located in one of the most beautiful parts of the island, just next to the famous Chaweng Viewpoint. Although completely secluded and private, we are just minutes away from the most beautiful beaches such as Chaweng Noi, Coral Cove, and Silver Beach. We are also just a short drive from the most popular and busy shopping and dining areas of Chaweng, Lamai, and Bo Phut. Koh Samui is rather small and easy to explore on your own.
Vikasa serves wholesome health-conscious meals in buffet style during 10:00-11:30 and 19:00-20:30. Both meals are complimentary for every yoga vacation guest.
Kickstart your day to an amazing brunch. A freshly squeezed juice, tea and coffee, a sunny side up or vegetable omelette, wholegrain toasts, oatmeal/ muesli with yoghurt, or chia seeds pudding, superfoods, boiled veggies with specialty in-house organic dips, vegetarian sandwiches or pancakes, and of course a variety of fresh-cut tropical fruits.
Dinner includes a hot soup, typical local dishes with tofu, brown rice, two or three vegetarian dishes, fresh salad, dahl, and always one seafood dish. For dessert we serve fruits, occasional delectable mango sticky rice or other uniquely Thai savouring. Our homemade signature tea is a perfect finish to your meal.
The traditional heart of Bophut is a charming fisherman village on the east side of the beach. Enjoy walking the street bazaar every Friday for local shopping. If you want to try the local seafood, your fresh catch is prepared before your eyes.
Chaweng is the largest and most popular of Samuis beaches. This is the longest beach on Samui and also the busiest tourist area with lots of shopping, dining, and nightlife.
Lamai is another nearby area situated along the second biggest beach after Chaweng. It also has a shopping street with many shops and restaurants.
Thai massage is wonderfully therapeutic and relaxing. Massage services can range from gentle and relaxing to highly effective deep tissue massage. Your therapist can help with specific problem areas and help to relieve stress related blockages.
Just across the road from Vikasa, there is a traditional Muay Thai boxing school. Private or group Muay Thai lessons can be easily arranged. For those willing to try a new experience in the martial arts, Muay Thai provides an exciting contrast to yoga practice.
Tour the local waterfalls, see a secret Buddha garden, visit the National Marine Park, explore the temples of Koh Samui, or meet local Buddhist monks. Many other exciting touring options are available by special request.
You can take your group to a nice beach at sunrise or sunset for an unforgettable meditation and pranayama session.
The Vikasa Spa offers a range of luxurious services that will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed. We specialize in authentic Thai massage as well as Swedish and Indian massage styles. We use excellent quality organic and locally manufactured products for our scrubs, facials, and skin treatments. Our spa is open air and constructed on a natural ocean cliff side.
For a unique experience, enjoy one of our special treatments such as Manual Lymphatic Drainage massage or a detoxifying Herbal Thai Compress treatment. Our signature Thai yoga massage emphasizes the assisted stretching that is a smaller part of most Thai massages and enhances your yoga training by increasing flexibility. Yoga and massage go together like breathing and air. Feel the soft sea spray and hear the waves crashing on the rocks as you enjoy being pampered by one of our expert therapists. A trip to Koh Samui wouldnt be complete without visiting the Vikasa Spa.
Koh Samui is easily reached via an increasing number of direct international flights and over a dozen daily 1-hour flights from Bangkok.
