~ Accommodations on Arrival ~
If your preferred start date is already full, or you wish to upgrade your accommodations for a more luxurious stay we would love to have you join us in paradise.
You can choose to register for our yoga retreat packages and arrange your own accommodations. As we are an independent yoga school, we are able to provide accommodations for our retreat packages for a limited number of students at one of the nearby resorts. When our maximum number is met, we indicate that we are full on our website, however we would love to provide you with another option. You can register for our yoga retreats and arrange your own accommodations from our recommended list of resorts below.
Koh Phangan, Thailand is considered to be a treasure destination off the beaten path. While preserving its abundant jungle, fauna and flora many of its secluded beaches offer an escape from stress and the high-paced modern lifestyle. Accessible primarily by boat year round, the tri-bay area of Haad Yuan, Haad Thien, and Haad Why Nam offer a serene getaway with a wide range of accommodation options for all budget types. From simple, rustic bungalows to mid-range comfortable living, and from funky upscale cottages to exclusive villa resort living, these 3 beautiful bays provide for all. The Blooming Lotus Yoga Studio is situated upon a jungle hilltop, overlooking the crystal blue ocean waters, in between Haad Yuan & Haad Tien Bays. Students joining us at Blooming Lotus Yoga will need to secure accommodations on one of these 2 bays. Please note:
- With the exception of the 4-star resort Pariya, all of our recommended resorts do not take reservations. They are small and humble family run establishments with no online or phone booking systems. You simply need to travel here in person and find a room upon arrival.
- During the high season months (Aug, Jan, Feb) accommodations are in high demand and finding a budget bungalow can be challenging.
Haad Yuan Bay – Blissful Tropical Waters
Haad Yuan Beach is 7 minutes away from The Blooming Lotus Yoga Shala. Haad Yuan Bay has the most beautiful white sand beach of all the three bays with turquoise blue warm water. There is an assortment of resorts & restaurants to suit all budget needs, and there is both WIFI and internet access on Haad Yuan, as well as a small convenience store for basic amenities. There is a weekly dance party each Tuesday & Saturday night at the Eden Bar and we suggest to students whom are light sleepers, to bring earplugs for those nights when the music can be loud.
Pariya is a four star resort that is air-conditioned, has a pool, and hot water showers/bath in each room. You can visit their website for rates and reservations or we recommend that you look at agoda.com first to see if they are offering any specials. Upscale Luxury Room : $90-140 USD/night These comfortable an luxurious rooms can accommodate 2 people and as such are an ideal option for couples. Rooms are cleaned daily, the Thai staff is very hospitable, and all the modern comforts and amenities are provided.
Haad Tien Bay – A Conscious Community in Paradise
Haad Tien Bay is just a 10 min. walk away from the Blooming Lotus Yoga Studio along the front ocean side path, and a 5 min. walk from the Blooming Lotus Yoga studio when taking the back jungle path. Haad Tien Bay has a beautiful sand & coral beach with a strong community feeling with many workshops, healing and group sharing opportunities throughout the year. Alternative & unique, it attracts international travelers looking for something different and out of the box. An eclectic community of meditators, healers and spiritual seekers all gather here to experience & experiment with altered states of consciousness. The weekly dance party can be loud but offers an opportunity for the community to come together and bond through music, dance & movement. Earplugs may be necessary for light sleepers on these Saturday party nights.
Beam Bungalows is located on a jungle hill above the coconut groove and ocean. It has a large restaurant, nice tropical gardens, beautiful views & easy access to the beach with a 12 minute walk to the Blooming Lotus.
