Vikasa is not a typical hotel. The approach is holistic, offering a full immersion into a healthy lifestyle that will leave your body and mind feeling fresher than you would if you stayed in a five-star hotel. On this retreat, you will be treated to the Vikasa ocean rooms and each offering an en-suite bathroom, private balcony, full or partial ocean vistas, and natural seclusion to truly immerse yourself in the surrounding environment.

Most rooms enjoy stunning views of the ocean outside and all rooms are thoughtfully decorated, clean, and comfortable. Vikasa is the creation of yoga pioneer, Konstantin Miachin, who created this unique place for personal evolution.

The ocean superior room features full ocean views, a private balcony, and added seclusion for a truly peaceful, relaxing, and inspiring experience. The room also offers a king bed, en suite bathroom, and breathtaking vistas from within. The ocean standard room features partial ocean views and a private balcony where you can enjoy the fresh island air, relax, read, or meditate to feel at one with your natural surroundings. The room also offers either a king bed or two twin beds and en suite bathroom.

Vikasa Retreat Center has a wide range of wellness amenities which are among the best on Koh Samui. Enjoy an authentic Thai massage in a sala overlooking the ocean below or in their spa. Treat your body to the detox with the Vitox program. Many resorts offer "detox" but at Vikasa, it is all part of a philosophy to offer you personal growth by fulfilling your specific needs.

Vikasa Life Café is a unique and healthy restaurant with 180-degree views of the pristine ocean from the cliffside terrace. Eating wholesome and healthy food is part of the lifestyle at Vikasa. The delicious signature cuisine creatively combines healthy ingredients that fuel you through the day and ring of pure indulgence to savor. Enjoy breathtaking views and friendly service from the famous terrace or curl up in the sanctuary of the chill-out lounge, dotted with comfy beanbags and familiar faces.


During this retreat, you will enjoy twice daily yoga taught by Los Angeles’s most talked about, hottest stars in the yoga community, Lauren and Travis, and seriously scrumptious healthy brunch and dinner at Vikasa Life cafe. They will teach their personally developed style of yoga, holistic yoga flow - the path of practice. Classes will be an in-depth journey through the philosophy and practice of yoga and include guidance on how to implement this in your daily life.

After the morning yoga, spend your day sunbathing or meditating on the seaside boulders cascading into the ocean; find tranquility lounging at the infinity pool; seek serenity at the cliff-side outdoor spa; or, immerse yourself in Thailand’s gracious culture on a jaunt into adjacent towns, Chewang, or Lamai.

Included excursions

While on retreat, you will be whisked you away and into the depths of the island to explore your favorite eco-friendly and conscious-centric attractions. Your adventures will include a mix of the hidden waterfall, mango plantation, family farm, Buddha, temples, craft markets, and more. Two different island excursions are being planned and be prepared for an epic Thai adventure.

For your favorite addition, the island organics excursion is a private tour of Lat and Cam’s, native or residents of the island, organic working garden-farm. While on tour, you will hand-pick ingredients for your meal and then work together to prepare and cook your meal in traditional form. This is more than a cooking class; it is the purest form of farm-to-table and a genuine family meal.
