The boxing gear can also be used for muay thai or boxing workouts. It costs approximately 180 baht for a session, or can buy a 10 pack and this... More

Not much to say, other than more equipment than most other gyms. Not new equipment, but does exactly what it says on the tin.

It needs up dating but hey at least it's a gym. We all need a bit of a work out in the morning. Could use a mechanic with an Allen key and a Mr fix it.

I didn't expect to find such a well equipped gym during my stay on the island and I was so pleasantly surprised. The fact that it is an outdoor gym makes it even lovelier. The staff is friendly, the floor gets cleaned multiple times a day (one day I saw it happen twice during the same workout). There is a... More

I stayed at a resort down the street from the gym and dropped in one time during my stay. Some of the equipment is a bit outdated but it has everything you need to have a solid workout. The staff seemed friendly and there were only a few people there when I went so you didn't have to wait for... More

The gym is well equipped (if a little dated) , has a great atmosphere and provides great value. The staff are friendly and helpful. Virtually everything I needed was there (and a lot that I didn’t). Dusk is a time to avoid, as it’s when the mosquitoes come out in numbers to feed; if you don’t slather your body in... More

Just spent a week in Maenam, Samui - Hippo's Gym was a great place to train - free-weights, machines, boxing ring/bags/equipment...everything I wanted. The staff also helped me find a nearby bungalow, rent a scooter, and recommended everything from trips to restaurants to a laundrymat. I couldn't have asked for more. Highly recommend that if you want to work out... More
