Samahita is primarily a Yoga retreat centre but I stayed as a non Yogi with my 3 year old son. After a few days to adjust to the quiet life and style we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves spending time at the restaurant, beach and pool. The food is wonderful, plenty of choice ranging from a Thai curry dish fresh salads and... More

Prefect place for yoga lovers. Interesting workshops program, beautiful Shala, and beach shala. The food is mostly vegetarian and delicious, the spa is greate. The rooms are modern and clean, but basic. The windows have blinds but when you lift them you are complitly exposed... especially if the room is located on ground floor. Don't expect significant sea view. I... More

This wellness centre is nothing short of wonderful. The wellness here isn't a 'gimmick'. Whether you are looking at detox, destress or to brush up on your yoga practice it is 100% genuine, well researched and delivered with care and attention to the individual. The food is well balanced and nutritious with tastes that guarantee you will be back for... More

I just realized that I owe a review for Samahita for the past 1.5 years but at the same time, I have always wanted a long enough recovery period before writing a review so that it is not clouded by all the temporary highs that usually follows after a visit to a place like Samahita. It wasn't easy to find... More

Spent a full week in Samahita and it was the perfect place to de-stress and work on your yoga practice. Everything was calm, peaceful and mindful. Starting with the yummy vegetarian brunch and dinner buffet spreads, the pranayama, meditation and yoga practices, the simple but comfortable accommodations. The staff and teachers were all friendly, very helpful and informative. The other... More

My friend and I returned to Samahita in September because we had so enjoyed our first visit the year before. As before, we opted for the Simple Balanced Living program, which offers not only daily yoga practice and excellent vegetarian food, but daily massages chosen from the massage menu. And again, we found the Samahita experience really therapeutic and totally... More

I attended the Centred Yoga 200+ hour accredited teacher training course in August. It was my second visit to Samahita Retreat.
