Why did we pick Koh Samui as our location for our fitness retreat?
Koh Samui is a popular destination for those who are interested in their health. It offers a large variety for those who are health conscious and those who are looking to get healthy. Samui also offers breath taking sunrises and sunsets. Not to mention that during the day there are typically clear skies that are unobstructed from pollution that can be typical in the north of Thailand.
Of course since it is an island it does also offer the beach. It provides a nice location for some early morning activity when the air is cooler and the water is warm enough to get in. The beach also gives those who want to take an evening after a day of activity to wind down and relax.
The other nice thing about an island for a fitness retreat is that islands are typically one giant hill…we use the hill. Once on top you will see views such as seen above.

Burn Calories by boxing on Samui
Boxers are always in shape and there are several Mauy thai gyms that have produced world class fighters. It offers a great way to burn some calories and let out some aggression.
Along with being a great place to exercise it is also a great place to find healthy meals.
It has one of the best raw food restaurants in the world “Radiance Restaurant” which we use to provide your healthy meals. We have also planned a healthy cooking class at one of the resorts into the activity so you can have something to take away with you.
Learn from their Cultural
There is also a cultural experience on Koh Samui. You will bike past a temple and get a chance to experience the architecture. If we are lucky we will also get to see latex being made by hand on a rubber tree plantation.
How is the weather on Koh Samui?
Working out on an island may sound like it will be hot all the time but as you can see with the chart below:
It is not much different from the city of Chiang Mai which is in the north
And when it gets hot?
When it does get hot we have ways of beating the heat by getting our hard stuff in during the morning and have found a nice shaded beach in the afternoon to get in an afternoon and also have a sala that offers an escape from the sun.
