These Thailand yoga retreats were created by Konstantin Miachin the founder of Vikasa yoga. The resort sits atop a cliff overlooking the ocean giving with spectacular views from every angle. They consider this a boutique resort thats away from the hustle and bustle but still within walking distance of a nice beach. Also if you need the hustle and bustle it’s only a $2 cab ride away. Here at Vikasa they offer a teacher training program, along with a destress package, a meditation retreat and an advanced yoga teacher training. The yoga shala is an open air room with great views. The meals served here are healthy, organic and judging the reviews delicious. It's designed to suit a wide range of budgets, so some accommodations are plain and basic and some are ocean front. An infinity pool and spa is accessible to all.

Reviews: It sits at a healthy 94%. The owners and staff will do everything they can to make your stay everything you dreamed it would be. The food and the views from the restaurant are amazing. The rooms are a tiny bit run down and need of an update (July 2013) and a bit more eco-chic than what appears in the website photos.
