With a number of different schools offering a range of disciplines, including Iyengar, Hatha and Vinyasa, there really is something here for everyone. From early morning classes to sunset stretches, we’ll help you find the right class for you.
Thailand is quite rightly famous for its food, so what better way to remember your time here than to learn how to recreate your favourite dishes. Most of the cookery schools here have different menus available, so you can select the food you wish to cook. There are a variety of classes running at different times of the day. Just ask our staff for more information.
Muay Thai is the national sport of Thailand, and is a cross between boxing and martial arts. It really is an exhilarating experience to watch these athletes in action. We have a number of stadiums on the island running events throughout the week.
Visit the beautiful islands of Koh Rok, the unspoiled island gems within the Koh Lanta National Park. Swim or snorkel in the beautiful clear blue waters, search for monitor lizards and other wildlife, or just relax on the beach. These paradise islands are a must see on your visit to Koh Lanta.
If you’ve seen the film The Beach, you’ll know just how stunning the islands of Phi Phi truly are. This tour takes you to the famous Maya Corner, then moves on to snorkeling at Bamboo Island and even gives you some time on the island to wander around. A trip not to be missed!
