TIME OFF This schedule is just an example of a daily plan- all classes are optional and you can pick and choose from what is on offer as you please. Break up your fitness and yoga sessions with spa treatments, massage or time by the pool! Samahita is located on the beautiful island of Koh Samui. The island is large enough to offer many adventures whilst small enough to have time to scoot around in a day or so. Explore the local beaches and markets, hire a bike to visit waterfalls and long stretches of palm-fringed back roads, or simply laze by the pool and soak up some sunshine.
