I was there for a T/T training led by Paul Dallaghan in July and I really enjoyed the time spent there with the great teaching team and other nice staff at Samahita Retreat. What they offer is just enough for your needs, no fancy stuffs but cozy rooms, eco-friendly surroundings, and great sattva food. With the T/T training, I have... More

Food is wonderful. Rooms are new and up to Western standards. Meals are served open air. Main room for yoga is great. Ample props for yoga are provided. Setting is right on the beach and they offer a coffee bar and have a nice small gift shop. Only negative is that you will see some trash along the beach just... More

Excellent yoga teachings and practice, offered by very experienced yoga teachers. The rooms are nice and comfortable with big bathrooms, which are kept very clean and in good order.

This place is excellent and I would highly recommend anyone who is on a healthy or healing path to stay at this wellness center. I was there for a yoga workshop, but the facilities are wonderful whether you go as a personal retreat or for a workshop.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Samahita Retreat was established in 2003 on the island of Koh Samui, and has been called by many a "hidden gem". Owned and directed by Master yogi, educator and researcher, Paul Dallaghan, our yoga and wellness retreat center has been a location for practice, learning and holiday for literally tens of thousands of guests from all walks of life over the years. Being the original Yoga Thailand, our center has grown and developed over the years and now encompasses a wellness center as well as its traditional yoga offerings. The name Samahita is translated from Sanskrit as "centered" or "balanced". To find balance is key - in daily habits, in weight management, in dealing with stress.. Samahita Retreat's clear and dedicated purpose is 'to provide both the tools to work on yourself through specific practices and dedicated programs as well as the environment within to learn, change and renew'. This is a personal mission and one we are committed to share with you. ... more   less
