Thailand Retreat

Vikasa Yoga Retreat, Koh Samui

February 16 - 23, 2020

 

We are leaving New York City Winter behind and heading to the island paradise of Koh Samui, Thailand in 2020! We have been looking forward to this retreat since we started the company in 2017, and it seems the time is finally here - we can’t wait to share this unforgettable experience with you.

Imagine beautiful beaches with white sand, picturesque sunsets, waterfalls, and jungle on this idyllic island. We will practice yoga in the thatched roof shala, explore the island and it’s waters, and carefully craft a retreat that will allow you to connect more with yourself, nature, the other members of Om Tribe, and of course your lead teachers, Randi Cerini and Erica Chen.

Our students always leave our retreats with their hearts full, bodies re-energized and strong, and arm-in-arm with new like-minded friends. We expect nothing less with our first retreat to Southeast Asia. Join us to get away, deepen your yoga practice, explore a new culture and country, jump start a healthier version of you, get inspired, or just have fun!

  • All lodging accommodations in dreamy island paradise

  • 2 daily yoga classes/workshops (minus the first and last day)

Vikasa Life Cafe

Not only is the view breathtaking, but Vikasa Life Cafe prepares meals that are stunning as much as they are tasty. The award winning chefs use fresh and delicious ingredients, some of which coming from their very own organic garden. We can’t wait to chow down after a juicy yoga session!

Vikasa serves wholesome health-conscious meals in buffet style. We’ll kickstart our day with their hearty brunch. A freshly squeezed juice, tea and coffee, a sunny side up or vegetable omelette, wholegrain toasts, oatmeal/ muesli with yogurt, or chia seeds pudding, superfoods, boiled veggies with specialty in-house organic dips, vegetarian sandwiches or pancakes, and of course a variety of fresh-cut tropical fruits.

Dinner includes a hot soup, typical local dishes with tofu, brown rice, two or three vegetarian dishes, fresh salad, dahl, and always one seafood dish. For dessert they serve fruits and occasionally, some delectable mango sticky rice, a true Thai speciality. To close the meal, we’ll enjoy their delicious homemade signature tea.

Flight and Transfer Information:

Flights from NYC to Koh Samui are about $900-$1300 right now, with 2 stops minimum. We will begin booking flights in early November- please do not book your flight until we send a group email with flight information. Once that happens, we recommend booking your flight no less than 3 months prior for the best price. In our experience, prices go up if you enter that 3 month window. If you like to track flights in advance, make sure you open a private browsing window so that your price doesn’t go up in the interim. On February 16th, we will all meet at the Koh Samui airport in a central location (TBD) and be picked up by private shuttles that will take us directly to Vikasa Yoga Retreat (only a 15 minute drive from the airport).
