Vikasa Yoga Retreat on Koh Samui, Thailand is a boutique yoga resort and organic restaurant. Vikasa offers an inspiring yoga environment created by Konstantin Miachin. Koh Samui island is a tropical dream destination in Thailand, the land of smiles. Vikasa Yoga Resort Koh Samui is located on the most beautiful part of Koh Samui, between Chaweng and Lamai. You are just a 10 minute tuk tuk ride away from either Chaweng or Lamai.

Koh Samui is also an ideal place for exploring yoga due to the outstanding natural beauty of the island. Most of Koh Samui is still considered unspoiled and unpolluted. Time on Koh Samui is an opportunity to relax, unwind, explore, and focus on yourself. Enjoy the natural energy of palm trees, white sand, purple sunsets, turquoise waters, dense jungle, and exotic waterfalls. Despite being so easily accessible, Samui remains an idyllic island in the sun.

We are located in one of the most beautiful parts of the island, just next to the famous Chaweng Viewpoint. Although completely secluded and private, we are just minutes away from the most beautiful beaches such as Chaweng Noi, Coral Cove, and Silver Beach. We are also just a short drive from the most popular and busy shopping and dining areas of Chaweng, Lamai, and Bo Phut. Koh Samui is rather small and easy to explore on your own.
