I was there in may 2014, it is a lovely place with truly sincere people. I did a combined programm of self-healing and detox. The place is beautiful, it has an amazing view from the yoga deck (that's where you eat and also have your yoga in the morning) The people are really nice and the place is really cosy... More

This yoga retreat is located on the most beautiful part of the Island in Koh Phangan. It's such an incredible place!! Breathtaking views of the crystal blue waters & white sandy beaches. The best part, the yoga deck looks out over the ocean. It's the most beautiful & inspiring place for a yoga class experience. Very clean accommodations. Fantastic vegetarian... More

The ten days at monte vista were really the best days of my life when it comes to self-awareness. The perfect mixture of yoga in the morning and meditation plus educational movies at night made me beware of many things I ignored in the past. It’s a nice atmosphere and the people working and staying there were great! In 1.5... More

Stayed here during a ytt course, the owners provided us with a beautiful spot to study yoga on a balcony with a view of the sea, cute bungalows and even cooks who made us three meals a day as requested. The location is close to many cool organic places to check out on koh phangan as well so if you... More

My friend and I wanted to find a nice place to practice for the 1st time yoga and meditation. So we booked at monte vista for 5 days, and actually ended up staying there for 10days. The yoga lessons with Danny were great, challenging but perfect to start a beautiful day! If you feel like going to the beach/kayaking its... More

Me and my boyfriend came to Monte Vista with the idea to volunteer for one month, and now we've spent almost four months here...We simply love this place - it's energy, it's people (guests and staff), it's views and surroundings, it's activities...

This is the most beautiful little spot. The only thing that wasn't great was some of the staff. They were all sweet, but they were not satisfied by each other and because of that there was alot of gossip. The owners wasnt there due to birth, and I'm sure that it would have been different if they had been there.... More

I think the owners replies to other reviewers really sum up my experience at Monte Vista. If you're the type of customer that likes to be made wrong and experience hostility from staff, then stay at Monte Vista! I too stayed here for a month in February for a yoga teacher training and agree with the other reviewers. The staff,... More
