I have been to this camp for over 1 month. It is an excellent training camp if you want a variety of your program. I paid day by day to train here because simply it is impossible to do all 6 days training. And you don't need to do Muay Thai because yoga, bootcamp and cross fit program will make you fit already. I usually take yoga, bootcamp (body fit) and one specialty program like Krav Kabong (stick fighting) and then a group session of Muay Thai in the afternoon. The private session is about $20 per hour but you progress much faster than doing group session. The trainers here are mix of good and bad, but overall I didn't have problem with any private session.

I would suggest not to prebook the training by month or week. Just walk in and pay by the day. Because some days you just too tired and you won't be able to make it to every single day. And don't buy the meal plan either, it is very westernized and expensive. There are cheaper restaurant just down the street (e.g. Tony's). And also accomodation you need to prebook far ahead if you want cheap accomodation at the camp. I showed up last minute (in high season), and everything was booked and only manage to find Tony's Dream Village which is about 10 min walk away from camp for 12000 baht a month. Low season walk in should have no problem.

I love the intensity and variety of program here. Everyday you can do something different and that is what I love. However I would suggest to stay here at least 1 month to get good results as it took me 2 weeks to conditon to the weather and the intensity of the programs.

As a female it is very intimidating.. It is mass market training and you are made to feel just a number! Yoga there is far too packed and there is no chance of the instructor seeing if your technique is correct. I also did personal training sessions there for Maui Thai, the instructors either double booked or did not turn up, highly unprofessional

I'm disappointed to see you didn't enjoy your stay with us.

Unfortunately, I have no record of any comment made by you whilst your period. As you can see from other reviews, the guests really enjoy the service provided by our staff and trainers on all levels!

Gender is not a factor at least in our camp,We happily accommodate all clients from all over the world.We have 40 Muay Thai trainers to provide personal training sessions as and when requested as per clients needs.

I recommend if you experience any service problems at any facility you train that you speak to the team on site to rectify. Everything can be fixed!!

Best Redards,

TMT Team

Spent 10 days training in Muay Thai at Tiger in the beginners class and it was worth it. (They also have intermediate and professional levels). The trainers are great, good teachers, very helpful, encouraging and amazing with techniques.

Each session is a 2 - 2 and half hr session with a warm up, followed by technique training, followed by sparring session and then warm ups again. happens twice daily (but I did one session per day as even that is pretty tough). U will need gloves, wraps and mouth guards which are easily available locally and can also be rented.

They also have body attack, gym and yoga. Tried the yoga sessions for a couple of days, the trainer was pretty average and it did not sync with my Muay Thai training so left it.

There are accommodation within the training area and along the whole street which is economical and pretty decent in terms of facilities. Will be visiting again for sure.

Tiger Muay Thai is a great camp: clean, lots of choice in training, nice healthy food, good prices, great range of accomodation available in and outside, English speaking trainers, friendly atmostphere and welcoming to people of all ages and shapes.

The Muay Thai beginner class, however, has serious limitations and issues compared to the rest of the camp:
- 1 the level: since the camp's intermediate and advanced classes are for rather expert and fit fighters only, the level of techniques and fitness in the beginner class range from zero to actually fairly advanced.
- 2 it's crowed: there are no limitations on attendance. The class can get unconfortably crowed at times, with a lot of people turning up only once or twice for a try.
- 3 so repetitive: since the class accepts new students twice a day, you end up taking the exact same "introduction class" over and over and over. The class will be almost identical from a day to another (with small variations), including the same jokes and gimmicks!
- 4 it's not a Muay Thai class: more of a fitness class based on Muay Thai moves. If you want to actually learn Muay Thai, do come to this camp, but take personal lessons - no need to lose your time in this cardio class.
- 5 sexism issues: in this class "Ladies" is considered as a technique/fitness level! The trainers in this class will never allow any "lady" to train with guys, regarless of levels of fitness or techniques. This doesn't happen in any other Tiger camp classes. You might also not love being called "ladies" all the time...
- 6 the presenter. He will make you stand in line while insulting Tiger Muay Thai cleaning staff, begin "fk..g Burmese" "Burmese are all thiefs". He also likes to comment on the attendees nationalities, with very dumb comments on politics/society or anecdotes such as "Suedish fk..g lady last time did this and did that". These (repetitive) ramblings can take up to 20 minutes of the class! Most attendees will laugh this off out of kindness or respect (or because they cannot understand more than 20-30% of his English anyway - lucky them) but it made me seriously uncomfortable.
Presenters of other classes in Tiger camp are very different: they don't make nasty comments on your nationality, they are not sexist, they don't call girls "lady", they pair girls and guys together as easily as not, they are inspiringly humble, speak wisely (and way less) and never use any bad words. I couldn't beleive the difference!

Overall, this place is awesome, just avoid Muay Thai beginner classes, expecially when presented by this "Mr Miyagi" - as he has modestly taken to be called.

This place is awesome. I went here to train for a week with a girlfriend who had done it before, I was a complete beginner and it was great, the Muay Thai, the yoga and body fit were all fantastic. Couple of hints- in my experience Tigers meal plan was more western food and pretty average so don't bother, lots of better cheaper places to eat. At least do some cardio fitness before you go. The beginning of November was not so busy, the day I left was a Monday ( middle nov) and the class looked like it had twice as many people in it as when I had done it. Do 2 weeks if you have the time, so you dont have to smash yourself the first couple of days. Bring hand towels you will sweat up a storm and have fun I will definitely be back and I will be bringing some friends.
