Eat Like a Yogi

When you book your Vikation, yoga retreat, personal program or yoga teacher training with Vikasa, your room price also includes two healthy delicious meals to fuel your body for optimum performance. Brunch is served between 9.30-11.30am and dinner is served between 6.30-8.30pm each day. These are meals include a wide variety of delicious options for you to choose from.

We believe the way we eat and how we make food matters. An integral part of the Life Café philosophy is awareness of what we put in our bodies and the impact it has on ourselves, each other and the earth.

During your stay at Vikasa your meals will be enjoyed at Vikasa’s healthy restaurant, the Life Café. You’ll eat in a beautiful, community setting where you can choose to socialize with other guests or find a quiet corner with a majestic view across the Gulf of Thailand. Vikasa Life Café serves wholesome, health-conscious buffet meals in self-service style, together with a full a-la-carte menu.

Every dinner meal also includes a main course option. On the buffet there is usually a salad, soup and plant-based protein dish. For dessert we serve fruits or the occasional, ever-popular mango sticky rice, or healthy chocolate mousse. Meals are based upon fresh, local, whole food and are primarily vegan and vegetarian, with some seafood options to choose from. Meals are nutritionally abundant and are balanced, creative and mouth watering- food is always a highlight for our guests. 

Aside from the included set meals, a full menu is available at the cafe from 9am-9pm seven days a week. Choose from our own signature blend of coffee, delicious vibrant smoothies, healthy snacks, vegan burgers and burritos, abundant salads and tasty mains. Don’t miss the dessert fridge with an always-rotating selection of raw vegan cakes, bliss balls and treats to help fuel you between classes!

Unlimited Yoga Classes

When you join us on a yoga retreat, Vikation or personal program, you have unlimited access to our full yoga class schedule. Classes are suited to all levels and our experienced Vikasa teachers will be your guide to support you on your yoga journey during your stay. Classes are held in the beautiful white prana sala with views looking right out across the Gulf of Thailand. The sun rises directly above the ocean here and morning classes are bathed in the soft golden glow of the rising sun. During the 5pm classes you’ll observe the sky change from blue to pink to dusky purple hues before slipping into savasana and then making your way to the Life Cafe for dinner as day turns to night.

You can view the weekly schedule here.

Every morning is our signature Vikasa Complete yoga class. This is a two hour class that includes meditation, pranayama, yoga kriyas, yoga asana and a long savasana. These classes use our signature Vikasa music to help you stay focused and align your breath with your practice for a deeper, more immersive yoga experience. Practicing with the music, the long asana holds, the focus on breath and the expert instruction from our Vikasa teachers leads you on a transformational journey, quite unlike anything you have experienced before. 

Aside from the Vikasa Complete classes, there are also Flow, Align and Chill classes on the schedule, plus sound, gong and an Ecstatic Dance several evenings. All are included in your stay at Vikasa. 

High quality mats and props are provided for you. All you need to do is arrive and enjoy the experience. 

If you would like to add any private yoga classes to your stay, this can be easily arranged upon arrival. Private classes are a wonderful way to deepen and enrich your practice, allowing you to work one on one with our yoga teachers to meet your unique yoga goals.

Experience Vikasa

During your stay you have unlimited access to all Vikasa facilities. The infinity pool overlooks the stunning ocean and is the perfect place to lounge between yoga classes with a good book or to make new friends with other fellow guests. Sun loungers and towels are provided to allow you to soak up the tropical sunshine before plunging in and cooling off in the inviting water. This is also a favorite location for impromptu sunrise yoga shoots.

You also have access to Vikasa’s ‘secret beach’ which is a private beach located below the white prana sala right near the Prana Cabana village. Take a towel and enjoy lounging on the soft sand under the towering palm trees or take a refreshing splash in the calm ocean waters. This is also where we do beach bonfires if you are part of a Signature Retreat or yoga teacher training program.

The Life Cafe is also the meeting where you can relax anytime with a cold coconut, iced coffee, healthy treat or delicious meal. The bean bag area located on the upper level of the restaurant is a great place to relax and enjoy looking out over the ocean or catching up on some reading or journaling. 

Two evenings a week in the Life Cafe there are free ‘yogi talks’ with our Vikasa team, the first one being ‘meet and greet’ or a chance to connect with other guests. The second is on a different yoga topic every week- come and be inspired, learn something new and enjoy being part of the vibrant Vikasa community. 

Finally, don’t miss out on experiencing our stunning Vita Spa for the ultimate pampering and rejuvenation during your stay. The Vita Spa offers a mix of traditional Thai treatments and holistic therapies to suit all needs. Our experienced team are on hand to lull you into a place of complete bliss and surrender. The spa offers stunning open air pagodas or zen-like air-conditioned spaces for you to enjoy your treatments.
