This was my 6th or 7th time at Samahita, for a 2-week yoga retreat/workshop with Paul Dallaghan, and as always it was absolutely amazing! 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. The restaurant is comfortable, with both 'regular'... More

The samahita is over all a very nice place. We met during our 8 days stay a lot of very nice people (guests and staff). The quality of yoga is top as well as the quality of massages and wellness. The rooms are nice and clean, separated by a small street from the rest of the resort. For us the... More

I have just returned from a 4 week stay at Samahita Retreat for a Yoga Teacher Training course. The whole retreat functions at a very high standard: from the instructors, to the wellness staff, the kitchen and social staff to the front desk, reception and cleaning and maintenance staff. Everybody works together to make the experience as comfortable as possible.... More

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.

The warmest welcome awaits you to this peaceful retreat on the quieter southern coast of the island of Koh Samui. Immaculate well serviced rooms, delicious and creative vegetarian dishes, with some fish.

I stayed at the resort for 3 days last week and had a very nice and relaxing time. I went on the detox program for 3 days and it went all right, apart from the somewhat slight lack of discussions in the consultation process. I filled in the pre-arrival health questionnaire and put 2 detox options as my preferences. I... More

Samahita is a gorgeous little getaway with options for anyone who's after a healthy holiday. It's set on a quiet beach in Koh Samui, surrounded only by a few other small hotels. Not a loud bar in sight. I visited the retreat alone and attended a week-long yoga retreat with the amazing Sara Granstrom. The people staying at the retreat... More

I wish I lived here!! Starting with things to improve would absolutely be in the yoga mats. Although I understand it would be very difficult to have enough mats for all guests the ones that are offered are in very poor shape. I was given a mat that had many chunks out of it and filthy.

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
