I've visited this place for lunch at least a dozen times now so it's makes sense to let others know how good it is. Firstly it's an open air restaurant perched on an Oceanside hill face with views sweeping over Chawengs idyllic beaches. Really amazing location and well thought out positioning of furniture in the restaurant to ensure every diner... More

Came here for lunch because my wife wanted to try it. I thought it would be another place serving healthy food with little taste but I was really wrong. The food was fantastic and service was good too, not to talk about the amazing views. The Mediterranean platter was delicious, I thought they could have served it with some buckwheat... More

Stopped for a drinks break, service is quick and efficient but you do pay a little more than just down the road for the same type of drink but it is the views that blow you away.

the variety on the menu is grandiose even out of the confort zone, it reflects already the infinite creativity of the chef Cyril and when you get your plate, colours and fragrances go in all directions, I ordered two dishes thinking that usually the portions are measured , but no way: big portions ! It all tasted so good I... More

Mostly vegan and very healthy food, buffet and a la carte. The vegan deserts are fabulous!!! Definitely the friendliest and happiest staff I've seen so far on this island :-) Great atmosphere and overall just one of the nicest restaurants here. Thank you very much!

Everything looks so good - the burritos are fabulous. Super fresh juices and fruit cocktails - I likes Berry Berry. Unbeatable location high on the cliff with great views over the bay to the distant horizon. A little bit more expensive than most places but worth the extra.

Vikasa Life Cafe is a unique and healthy restaurant on the beautiful island of Koh Samui. Eating wholesome and healthy food goes hand-in-hand with our lifestyle philosophy at Vikasa and our Life Cafe plays an important part of enabling you to do that, whether you're staying here or just visiting. We've formulated a signature cuisine, combining healthy ingredients with pure indulgence for you to savor while enjoying the breathtaking views and friendly service from our famous terrace. Vikasa serves a wide variety of food styles to suit different dietary needs; we offer vegan-friendly, international, fusion, western, raw and non-vegetarian dishes.

Just as our yoga approach is always evolving, so we are constantly experimenting with food preparation and creating new amazing tastes for you to try. Our food is creative, fresh, colorful, fully flavored and balanced. We use only the best ingredients available, including organic produce whenever possible. We also have an excellent selection of freshly squeezed tropical juices and smoothies with no additives. We are confident you can find something you love on our menu. All our dishes are created with your health in mind.

We believe you deserve to know what's inside your food, which is why we use only the best ingredients, organic whenever possible, and never any additives or preservatives.

Our Chef
In addition to other influential creators, our featured raw food chef Boris Lauser from Berlin designed many of our delicious menu items. Boris's raw delights are both vegan and raw. Raw means that the creations are not heated over 42 degrees and therefore retain all of their healthy vitamins and minerals. Integrating raw dishes to a healthy diet will help you attain a strong flexible body.

Boris Lauser received his initial training at the world-renowned Tree of Life Center, in Arizona, USA, where he set his foundation in gourmet raw food and its nutritional background theory. Boris has been working with raw foods for over 5 years, teaching seminars and organizing dinner events worldwide. He has also complemented his education with further training at the world's best gourmet raw food culinary school, The Matthew Kenney Academy in Oklahoma City.

Enjoy the evolution of food at Vikasa and join us whether it be for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

The Vikasa Life Cafe is open everyday from 9:00 am - 9:00 pm
