Thank you so much for a beautiful experience! I really enjoyed my meditation retreat because I was looking for something different than a vipassana meditation retreat where you are expected to sit in a monastery in silence for 10 days with strict rules and daily structure. I loved how your approach gave me all the meditation time I needed (especially the daily meditation and mindfulness... Read full review

After visiting the retreat centres on Samui for number of years I wanted to see if Phangan had something similar with more peace and serenity around. Samui has become quite busy. I’m happy I discovered you guys to be honest. Very impressed with the facilities, rooms, food, and of course the retreat program itself. Many guests in different retreats shared the same feeling when we had free time. So... Read full review

My girlfriend and I did not participate in any retreats during our stay with you. We only booked a regular stay with breakfast. But after speaking to other guests and hearing about the experiences they were having, it inspired us to try a retreat. So next year we are coming with a mission! Thanks for the amazing holiday and the island activities you helped us enjoy. Your resort is beautiful and... Read full review

I have visited many spiritual hubs around the world in my life and I must admit that Koh Phangan has a special vibe that is hard to put into words... Not sure if what they say about the island being mostly a giant quartz crystal is true, but there is definitely something in the air. I booked with Samkara as opposed to Kamalaya where I normally go as Samui is losing its vibe. Very pleased with... Read full review

I had never been to a wellness resort before but heard about the life changing experience my son had during his 2 week retreat holiday at Samkara. Thailand was also a new destination as I always traveled to places like Mexico and the Caribbean, but I felt like trying something new and this recommendation was calling to me. The all-inclusive style packages were very similar to what I had been used... Read full review

Your detox retreat was exactly what I needed. I haven’t felt this good in a long time and your homework package you gave to me when checking out makes it easy to keep on track now. So thank you so much. I’ll be sure to send some colleagues your way. They keep asking why I’m so radiant ;)

I highly recommend Ram for an astrology reading. He’s great! Ram is professional, thorough and caring, and he also brings the extra element of intuition when reading your chart, which provides for a very holistic reading. Ram has given me two chart readings over the past few years and I was really happy with both of them. I would love to go back for more!
