A Unique Resort on Koh Samui, Thailand
Vikasa Yoga Retreat is a unique resort in an inspiring environment on Koh Samui. The resort’s wellness-centric experience is the creation of yoga pioneer Konstantin Miachin, who created Vikasa as a place for personal evolution. It’s the ideal place to practice yoga, find like-minded people, eat healthy food or just chill-out in an amazing environment. Joining our community gives you access to daily yoga classes, yoga vacation packages, regular events and yoga teacher training as well as various healers and nutritional counseling. Experience the Vikasa lifestyle and feel the transformation of your daily life.
Vikasa offers yoga classes on Koh Samui. Classes are taught by experienced international yoga masters in a variety of styles, including of course our unique Vikasa style. We are proud of the standard of teachers that we are able to attract and you will find our instructors are true experts with years of experience. Vikasa is also a certified yoga school where hundreds of students successfully pass intensive teacher training courses each year to receive a globally recognized 200-hour Yoga Alliance certificate. Classes are either mixed level or intermediate level which is also suitable for beginners. You’ll find that you are encouraged to challenge yourself during each class in a safe and effective way.
Yoga is hard work, but it’s an incredibly rewarding way of life a lot of fun too. We’ve done our very best to provide our visitors with the perfect yoga environment. You’ll find not one but two open air yoga pavilions with sweeping views of the cliffs and sea beyond. There really is nothing like practicing yoga with the soothing sounds of the ocean around you. We have a very modern approach to yoga that our visitors find accessible and refreshing. We try to offer an innovative, open minded and healthy way of practicing yoga that challenges you in a unique way. Our teaching methodology helps the student to break through and enjoy an experience that leaves them feeling awake, aware and energized. That methodology is tied in to a basic belief that we all share that everyone can be a yogi. We don’t think that you need to be flexible or thin, or have the “right” clothes. All you need to do is show up with an open mind and do your best. More than yoga, we offer you inspiration and transformation.

For example, while enjoying the Vikasa spa why not try the highly specialized Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage, or a detoxifying Herbal Thai Compress Treatment. Enjoy being pampered by one of expert therapists at our spa and relax in our stunning infinity pool. Feel yourself evolving in this very special space, designed with your experience in mind.

Due to the unique nature of the resort, which is situated on a hilltop and continues down to the ocean, the resort has many stairs. It is not considered handicap accessible or suitable for elderly, injured, or very young people. As the Vikasa Lifestyle encourages healthy fit living, many guests find the stairs to be a fun challenge. If you require a room with a shorter climb, please notify us when making a reservation. Also, due to the peaceful atmosphere required for yoga and meditation, Vikasa is not suitable for young families. Hotel Rooms >>
Feel the soft sea spray and hear the waves crashing on the rocks as you enjoy being pampered by one of our expert therapists. A trip to tropical Koh Samui wouldn’t be complete without visiting our resort and the Vikasa Spa. Treatments at Vikasa Spa are designed to revive, refresh, and inspire. Combine any 3 treatments or massages to create your own custom spa experience and save 20% on the regular price. A great way to try a variety of treatments and feel pampered. Spa Koh Samui >>

Vikasa at Night
Vikasa is almost as lovely at night as during the day. Even without the warm Thai sun, there is a special glow to this place. The local fisherman light up the Gulf of Thailand with their alien green fishing lights. The soft hum of crickets and cicadas remind us how alive the jungle is. The full moon beckons you to our neighboring island of Koh Phangan. There is plenty to enjoy at night at Vikasa. Yoga Vacations >>
