Retreat location

This retreat will take place on the island of Koh Pha-Ngan, situated in the Southern Gulf of Thailand, 100 kilometers from Suratthani, the district center.

Koh Phangan came from the word Ngan which means sand bar. The name was derived from the many sand bars that are visible around the island during low tide season.

The island of Koh Phangan has been known as the island of the full moon party but when the party is over and the sun has risen, you will be surprised to find how much more Koh Phangan has to offer.

composed of over 40 islands endowed with pristine beaches, natural caves and the tranquil Tha Laem Nai - the salt water blue lagoon lake featured in The Beach by Alex Garland. It seems that whatever it is you are looking for, there is something here for everyone.
