Kra Buri

Particularly the first leg of your trip, the intention is to provide a genuine Thai cultural experience. It is also assumed that people will share bungalows. If you are coming alone, Sparkly Yoga will match you to share with a suitable person.

Bungalows are simple, charming, and made from wood in the traditional style. Each bungalow can accommodate two people and some of you may be sharing. Some bungalows have two single beds and some have a queen size bed, all with mosquito nets. All basic linen will be provided. Each bungalow also has its own private bathroom, which is mostly outdoors (al fresco!).

No hot water, but the temperature being tropical usually does not bother most. Hot water buckets may be provided if absolutely required. Fans can be provided but no air conditioner. The accommodation here is fairly basic but charming and clean, no luxuries amenity wise, but they are not slumming it either. Keeping it simple is more aligned with Sparkly Yoga's philosophy and makes for a more authentic cultural experience.

Koh Tao

On Koh Tao, however, the resort is a little more upmarket with slightly fancier bungalows and amenities such as hot water showers and even air conditioner for some rooms.

Testimonials

  • Review by Monica

    "Michele's retreat charged me up on so many different levels. I intensified my practice in an unexpected way because he constantly challenged me, but not to a point of pain. He stimulated my spiritual practice with readings and recordings that were secular and applicable. He worked individually with me in the group by correcting certain postures but also encouraged the group to work together in a connected conscious way. Michele's smile and gentle enthusiasm made me feel safe and willing to try things I wouldn't possibly do on my own or in another setting. Nature's backdrop, and because it was Spring, was just a magnificent inspiration to be quiet and soak up the environment with all of my senses. Thank you kindly for sharing your knowledge with me Michele."

    "I try to keep a minimal public profile online - I’m reluctant to publicly put my name to anything online, especially something so personal. What you do is amazing, though. This is potentially life changing stuff. Thank you. What an amazing weekend! Namaste,"

    "I wish I had the time to attend more classes. Mickey is such a fabulous instructor very easy going, relaxed, and knowledgable. I started out as a total beginner and with Mickeys guidance I have improved so much and enjoy attending yoga every week. Each class is different and in such a relaxed atmosphere, I highly recommend Sparkly Yoga!"

  • Review by Susie Petris

    "Michele is an awesome instructor. These classes are everything I look for in a yoga class. Not too serious, not just about the physical, while still being challenging enough to work up a sweat (if you want to), great dose of the spiritual and energetic, and the mindset of what yoga is in a practical way. I want more from a yoga class than just a work out, a stretching class, or a lecture, I want to leave feeling fabulous physically, emotionally, and spiritually, and I always leave his classes feeling like that. Part of the appeal is he goes off and does the great retreats with inspiring people in far flung locations, and I get to live a little of that by learning from what he has learned."

    "A perfect mix of active and resting, pranayama and asana, massage, and snorkeling. Baan talay is a beautiful and private setting with very generous and gracious hosts. I enjoyed getting to know such a friendly and fun group of people. Thank you Mickey for your teaching, for your quirky sense of humor, and for organizing a lovely retreat in such an exotic location. Highly recommended!"
