Reviews

Stressed out from daily life and needed to recap and build confidence from within.
More than just yoga but includes hiking, cardio and strength classes I really enjoyed my stay at this retreat. Being a solo female traveler and amongst other reasons that arose… I almost didn’t go. Staff at the resort and bookretreats.com were super understanding and in the end, I decided I didn’t want to miss out. I’m very glad I did. The food was excellent. I miss it 😅. The variety of activities was the best bit as I get easily bored… I feel fitter and more confident. I’m also super happy that the classes were small to keep the family vibe and it made it far more personal. You do hear the muay Thai school next door but it’s not much of an issue if you are participating in the activities. The staff was extremely caring and helpful. Hopefully, I get the chance to go back!

An outstanding professional team led by Lander who is an enthusiastic champion of the activity program and the Manager & owner of the resort. Friendly, warm, welcoming staff who deliver excellent customer service. The food in the Wild Tribe Cafe is of à consistently excellent standard served by cheerful and professional staff. A must-do detox experience. A place to return to if you want to get results and enjoying yourself & the great food.

Winning formula! Lander and his staff strike just the right balance with their encouragement and support, and a comprehensive program for health and wellness. A variety of fitness options keep it lively and challenging.
Hikes in nature are really fun! Kudos to the yoga teachers and physical trainers who are superb. Small outfit supporting the environment with green initiatives, and relying on local businesses. Had no clue I would be doing a Muay Thai Boxing workout, but loved it!

My stay at visit natural detox
Was wonderful from start to finish. From the welcome to the clean rooms and lovely pool to the amazing workouts throughout the day and incredibly warm and friendly staff, I couldn’t have asked for more. Being able to eat clean and having a kitchen staff that pays attention to everyone’s needs – allergy, detox, or otherwise – is something I value a lot and if you do as well, you won’t be disappointed.
The beach is literally 5 minutes walking with two restaurants that offer free sunbeds. The water is a bit choppy so I didn’t swim in the ocean, but the pool is refreshing and welcoming so it filled that need. With the 3-4 workouts a day (cardio/yoga/strength) there’s not a whole lot of time for that anyway so the pool was perfect.
I loved the hikes and bike rides at 7 am and it was fun getting to try out Muay Thai boxing one day. The reviews are true – you can hear them through the day but they work out roughly the same times as the workouts offered to us so it didn’t matter too much.
Having the massage and nail spa right across the street was a favorite, and getting laundry done right next door (basically) for 80baht x 1 kilo made it so I didn’t have to bring home sweaty smelly clothes.
The only thing I wasn’t super keen on was the self-defense morning – I wish there were two options that day (there are often 2 options of workouts at 7 am). But if it’s not your thing you can always sleep in or walk on the beach!
I would recommend this space, their staff, and the workouts they provide to any of my friends. So grateful for my time there
