Location

Koh Samui, Thailand

Koh Samui is an island in the Gulf of Thailand, a small tropical oasis with secluded beaches and a pace all of its own. For years now the island has been a central part of the travelling yogi trail.

With yoga centers, health cafes and a large community of teachers and health practitioners, there is a real sense of being amongst tribe. 

The weather is great year round although if you don't enjoy the rain then avoid October until the New Year when the monsoon comes through. 

There are daily flights operating to Koh Samui Airport from Singapore, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and also many flights every day from Bangkok. You can also reach Koh Samui via ferry from the mainland at Surat Thani if you travel to the south by train. The ferry will take around 90 minutes.

Food

The venue serves wholesome health-conscious meals in buffet style as part of your all-inclusive package price. Vegans and vegetarians are catered for with love.

Your day begins with a healthful and energizing brunch. A freshly squeezed juice, tea and coffee, a sunny side up or vegetable omelette, wholegrain toasts, oatmeal muesli with yoghurt or chia seed pudding, super foods, 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 they serve fruits, occasional delectable mango sticky rice or other uniquely Thai savouring.

Their homemade signature tea is a perfect finish to your meal. You will also have light snacks during afternoon breaks; however many students prefer to eat out while exploring nearby beaches or famous shopping areas.
