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. I exchanged it for... More

This is a beautiful resort, but there are some things I wish I had known before I went. * This is Ashtanga yoga. ONLY! Being from the States, where we do vinyasa style yoga for the most part, I was not aware that we would only be practicing this style of yoga, which if you are not familiar with it... More

Paul Dallaghan has changed over the years and his evolution as a teacher is remarkable. For excellence in Ashtanga yoga instruction, Samahita is unmatched. The facilities and accomodation are well managed and comfortable. The downside, newly evident, is a result of the new rooms--the expansion of the housing: there are now far too many students for the property, it's become... More

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 yoga and lifestyle teacher, Paul Dallaghan, the 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.Samahita Retreat is located in the south of Koh Samui, right on the beach. It is in a quiet area off the beaten track, with plenty of privacy and comforts, yet still close to markets and amenities. The beach is virtually ours alone, many rooms have a direct sea view, while the surroundings are lush and green. Many of Koh Samui's special attractions are down the south near us, waterfalls to temples and more. A walk down our beach brings you to the golden Laem Sor Pagoda of a realized Buddhist monk, whose force has drawn us to be established in this special spot.All backgrounds of people join us here, whether yoga students, from beginners to advanced, those looking to lose weight and get healthy, regenerate from a stressful life to a holiday with all the healthy perks. It is the kind of place where someone traveling alone can meet people and feel at home, and where families can relax and enjoy themselves. (We offer many services for parents of young children, who might not have much time for their own time or yoga back home.) Even partners who don't do yoga or wellness find our setup perfect for them while their other half gets on with the yoga and treatments! In short, all are welcome.For your health and environment, Samahita Retreat is a smoke and alcohol free retreat center. ... more   less
