Directly on the beach… of course!
Samahita Retreat lies on the south coast ofÂ Koh Samui, a tropical island in the Gulf of Thailand that still has long stretches of pristine beaches and unspoiled land. KohÂ SamuiÂ is only about an hour away from Bangkok by air, an hour plus from Singapore, and three hours from Hong Kong. The islandÂ has the allure of a remote island paradise but with the accessibility of the region’s most popular destinations. To find out how to get to Koh Samui and Thailand clickÂ here
Situated on Laem Sor beach, Samahita Retreat is surrounded by towering coconut trees in a quiet, spacious area, with incredible sunrises and sunsets that play with the colors of the water, sand and tropical fauna. Only a few hundred meters away is the well-known Laem Sor Pagoda, which houses the remains of Leung Poo Daeng, a realized monk. The only other structures in the area are villas privately owned. As such, our beach is private and virtually undisturbed, creating a beautiful, peaceful setting for you to enjoy your Thailand yoga holiday retreat and chosen wellness packages.
As this side of the island is protected by a natural reef, there are only some parts of the year when the beach directly in-front of Samahita is high enough to swim. When the tide is low during the summer months, you might prefer to take long swims in our saltwater swimming pool or swim out to deeper water throughÂ the boat channel.
The main shopping areas are still within easy reach, about fifteen to thirty minutes away by car or motorbike and Samahita Retreatâs gentle setting inspires long, refreshing walks on the beach or through the meandering back roads.
We are forty-five minutes away from Koh Samui airport, and taxi drivers will know how to get to Laem Sor, especially if you show them a printout of the map below. Directional road signs will also guide you to Samahita Retreat as you begin to approach. Nonetheless, we recommend that you book a taxi pickup with us, just to be sure.
From the Koh Samui ring road 4169, take road 4173 at the Namuang waterfall intersection. Follow the road for 3 km until the 4-way intersection at Ban Thale, turn right on to road 4170 towards Laem Sor Pagoda or Thong Krut. Continue for approximately 1 km, then turn left where you see signs for Mor Din restaurant, Easytime resort and Samahita Retreat (fawn coloured back- light sign). After 700m you will arrive at the end of the road on the beach and the location of Samahita Retreat. Our reception is right on the beach while the guest accommodations are opposite the beach.
