This was a out of comfort zone experience for me, which helped boost my confidence. I was welcomed to the camp with kindness by everyone and my experience opened my eyes in certain aspects. Do not join the camp and complain, if you are thinking this is some sort of vacation/resort. It’s a camp which helps not only to lose weight but also to strengthen you both physically and mentally as well as push you to do better. A lot of the times the training had been hard, and admittedly I have had moments when I thought I couldn’t go any further with certain exercises, but Klaus will push and encourage you because he genuinely believes in you. Aside from training, Klaus had been like a father figure who I could always turn to whenever I had problems. And I’ve learnt some life lessons from him when he shared some of his stories about his past. The Muay Thai training I did was one of the best experiences I’ve had and I’ll be carrying on when I go back home. The trainer, Maa, likes to keep the training fun but will push you to do better when he wants you to get the techniques right. Maa also went above and beyond outside training to teach me some of the cultural ways of life in Thailand and also encouraged me multiple times to try new things. One big lesson I learnt from both Klaus and Maa is to believe in myself a lot more, and keep pushing forward, even if the mind tells you to stop. I recommend joining this camp if you want to get out of your comfort zone and take the first step towards working on yourself. I still have a lot of improvements to do but I’m proud of what I was able to accomplish so far. Oh and make sure you have mosquito repellents when you join the camp! 🤣

I wasn’t sure about booking a fitness retreat, was assured that it would not be a boot camp style but it was anything but encouraging. Manager was impatient with me when doing exercises, despite me informing them of my age, goals and inexperience. Not the type of encouraging environment that is advertised. Luckily I didn’t stay at the camp, it’s very basic. Did an early morning walk each day and while the ThaibTrainers were lovely it was repetitive doing the same route each day, through hua him and up and down the steps to the Buddha. The young guys who came in the walks each morning were so nice but were not approved by the manager to take alternative routes. The boxing classes tended to be busy as the gym is small and others join the classes who were not staying at the camp. I enjoyed these classes most as it was more enjoyable when the manager wasn’t around in the afternoons. Maybe it’s cultural but he didn’t think gym time should be enjoyed or fun, so it always felt strained when he was around. Would have been nice to have some Thai dishes served but none during my visit. Liked the early morning walks seeing Thailand people start their day and the monks coming in to get their provisions, even got a blessing from one. Overall while I love Thailand the camp wasn’t a warm inviting experience, maybe if the manager relaxed a little there might be more fun, after all it is a holiday?!

We went to Palapon for a 24 hr charity run event last month, and I can't speak highly enough about the owners, staff and facilities. It's an idyllic little oasis in central Hua Hin. Everything about the place is perfect, from the lovely chalet bungalows, great food, pool and facilities, but what really makes you feel at home is the enthusiasm and personalities of Klaus and valerie, they are such awesome people who really go the extra mile to ensure you get the best out of your visit there. They are also extremely knowledgeable about their jobs too, be it fitness or nutrition. Definitely highly recommended.... Give it a try! 5* 👍🙏
