My boyfriend and I spend the month of July traveling throughout Thailand and ended our trip at Monte Vista. We really did not know what to expect as we had volunteered at a few other places throughout Thailand and one of which was definitely not what we were looking for. I was very happy when we arrived to Monte Vista because it exceeded my expectations. Our bungalow and the remaining grounds were kept in great condition. There were definitely some geckos sharing our bungalow with us, but their presence is inevitable and you learn to share your space with them as Koh Phagnan is just as much their home as it is ours. Plus, they keep all the other unwanted creatures as bay. Jackie and the staff were very wonderful to us and I grew to appreciate and care for each one of them. I was feeling under the weather for a portion of my stay and Jackie was very helpful and caring in giving me advice. The daily yoga practice was really great and rewarding, Gabby is a great teacher and I really was sad to leave her class when I had to go. The Ayurvedic meal is kitchery, not my first choice in a meal but I signed up for a detox meal, not a gourmet experience. After my detox was done, however, I enjoyed all of the meals that Su cooked. She is a fantastic cook as well as a very special person and I was incredibly sad to say goodbye to her and her young daughter.
I will never forget my stay and the relationships I created at Monte Vista. I think of it often.
Very grateful for the experience.
