About
Veranda is an exceptional beach-front retreat centre and spa on the beautiful island of Koh Phangan in the Gulf of Thailand. We're on the North coast in the village of Chaloklum. Join our yoga combined Pilates Yogalates classes and bootcamp fitness class overlooking the bay. Enjoy breakfast and drinks after the class on our beautiful deck. Surrounded by a traditional Thai fishing community, we are perfectly situated for a relaxing view over Chaloklum Bay. Peace and quiet are the norm throughout the year. Our large deck overlooking the beach is the perfect place to enjoy early mornings and sunset. Enjoy the view of fishing boats and blue tropical waters. To escape the sun, a visit to our large and private Wabi Sabi Garden is highly recommended. Lounge in a hammock or enjoy the feeling of walking barefoot around the grounds to rejuvenate and reconnect.

Tai chi yoga experience
Jul 2017 • Friends
I went to see Colleen during my travels in Ko Phangan. I told her that I was interested in tai chi. She told me that she does yoga with a tai chi influence. So I decided to see her onJuly 31st, 2017 and bring my friend that has never done yoga or tai chi before. It was amazing she taught us how to relax helped find our relaxing stance and told us to do what we felt as comfortable for our bodies, since regular yoga is about pushing your bodies to the limit for excersise in the states. It was very relaxing, since we were taught about the two different breathes that you should be using in exercise and everyday life. We were also taught that some people deal with stress in different ways than others and just realizing what is stressing you out or what is going on in that moment just makes you relax even more. She also brought to my attention that my ankles were swollen that I've never even noticed before. It was an amazing class and reasonable price for an hour. She also responded back to Facebook messages really quickly.

Truly worth a visit
Jan 2017 • Solo
Some time ago, I had the opportunity to discover Veranda at Chalocklum area in Koh Phangan. Center where you can do Yoga, Pilates or another categories that Chad and Colleen ( the owners) are specialized. The house is located in an amazing beachfront calming area, making your experience more authentic.
After explaining Colleen how I felt physically and mentally, we started working every single early morning on ours one to one yoga lessons., during my 10 days of holidays.
Since the first day, my mind and body started to feel small changes, and nowadays after few months of my Veranda's experience and doing yoga regularly based on her advises, I could tell you, this:
Improves my flexibility
Builds muscle strength
Perfects my posture
Ups my hear rate
Relaxes my system
Founds a healthy lifestyle
Helps me focus
Maintains my nervous system
Gives my lungs room to breathe
Gives me peace of mind
Etc, etc... 😊

Colleen noticed me that changes are possible and you can get what you want, just only having the right support and the knowledge of your needs from the beginning.

Thanks guys!!

Idyllic oasis for a retreat
Jun 2017 • Solo
I did a 5 day private retreat with Colleen and it was lovely. Veranda Phangan was exactly what I needed and had been looking for (without really knowing it). The location in Chaloklum was perfect – on a beautiful beach in a fishing village in the north of Kog Phangan. I was hoping to find a quiet place to relax and reflect while I was in Thailand; wanting to prioritize and learn tools to better incorporate self-care and balance in my life. Spending the week with Colleen at Veranda was exactly that. I spent my mornings with the sun rising from behind the hills and over the bay while learning and practicing meditation and mindfulness. I ended each day with an evening practice of yoga with Colleen. The time in between I spent mostly on the beach - sitting in the hammock on the deck and floating in the gulf. It was an idyllic oasis; the opportunity I needed to get in touch with my physical, mental, and emotional being. During my week I also had a massage by Colleen, and borrowed a bike to explore the local temples. I stayed in an elevated (air conditioned) hut right across from Veranda, and would go into the town in the evening for dinner. I left feeling recharged and equipped to continue the practices I had been learning with Colleen in my everyday life. I highly recommend! Thanks Colleen for the delicious food, helpful chats, and overall lovely experience :)

Fantastic experience!
Apr 2017 • Family
We are so happy to have found Veranda! I was looking for a yoga trainer who could professionaly guide me through my practice while being pregnant. I had the chance of a 1:1 training with Colleeen and was fantastic. Gentle, but efficient and with a lot of breathing tricks which I use now as well.
My husband has trained himself with Chad and he was very happy about the obvious efficiency in a short while.
We were lucky to be there, because it is never easy to find real profis in this field. And they are!
We do recommend you to visit Veranda and Colleen& Chad, and maybe also to enjoy a breakfast there on the beach😉!

Great training and views!
Mar 2017 • Solo
I did the 10 day strength and flexibility course with Chad. It quickly become obvious that Chad has a deep knowledge of the underlying principles of this type of training. During the course questions came up and he could always provide answers from this theory. I was skeptical but I am a complete convert now. These classes are amazing. I am still using what I learnt.

The venue is one of the most breathtaking places on the island. I came a bit early a few times, just to sit on the outdoor yoga platform to take in the sights of a fishing village waking up to a new day. It is spectacular.

Unforgettable experience
Feb 2017 • Solo
The place is beautiful and has a wonderful view of the sea. If you are looking for having a juice and just relax watching the sea, it's perfect for that. But Veranda offer much much more than that! It is a really great place for recovering your calm, breath, and taking care of your body and mind. I took a 7 day retreat and was a great experience, I am so happy I found this place. You don't have to miss it if you plan to go to Chaloklum and practice some yoga, meditation and fitness. Yogalates and fitness classes are awesome and make you feel great! The place is perfect for some meditation, it has beautiful spots where ti sit and juts heath. Massages are high high quality and the sauna is perfect to finish your day at Chaloklum. Smoothies and fruit salad are so tasty and fresh. Coconut coffee is delicious! I won't miss this place if you are looking for a break, tranquility and self-care. Chad and Colleen are lovely people!! (thank you for everything!) I will comeback for sure.

Back home in NZ now & still thinking about our glorious time staying in Haad Khom Beach near Chaloklum. Was delighted to find a place for Yoga nearby!! Coleen's afternoon classes were a great blend of yoga & pilates, gentle yet effective - great for any level. A great find & I wish Coleen & Chad all the best with their new venture 🙏

Awesome place
Aug 2016 • Couples
We happened to be here by chance as we' re exploring the island. This place is just so secluded yet welcoming like nowhere else in Koh Phangan. Offering interesting mix of yoga pilates classes it also has a choice of a healthy breakfast and amazing coffee. Ambience is great, blue sea, white sand, palm trees, green mountains, fisherman boats.. You'd better visit and experience yourself🏝

Wonderful people who truly know what they're doing
Aug 2016 • Business
Colleen and Chad are two people with the knowledge, experience and qualifications to run a health and wellness center. I've taken both Chad and Colleen's classes, and they're very complementary to each other, so it's a great idea to take both!

I've had some joint problems for years, and Colleen was the first person who had a real answer to the issue, as well as a solution.

She does counseling, massage, and has a sauna in the back available for private bookings. Plus, the beach that Veranda is at, you can swim in! Best time to go is in the late afternoon when the tide is high. There are a few friendly dogs who'll love swimming with you too!
