Embrace Evolution with a Vikasa Signature Retreat

Choosing the right retreat will provide you with an experience that will support your body, mind, and energy to expand in new ways that will transform you and enrich your quality of life.

Our Viksa Signature Retreats are based on the ideals of the Vikasa lifestyle and philosophy. Vikasa means evolution in Sanskrit and we believe that taking time out to disconnect from your day to day surroundings and reconnect to yourself on a deeper level is one of the most powerful ways to grow, transform and discover true lasting happiness. What you will experience through the Signature Yoga Retreats is a journey within, supported by our Senior Vikasa teachers and a group of like-minded individuals who, like you, are seeking a rich, explorative and expansive retreat journey. These retreat experiences combine the Vikasa method of yoga, meditation and pranayama, along with unique workshops, adventures and dynamic activities and exercises that encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and try something new. Daily life can keep us trapped in mundane and repetitive cycles. The key to evolution and happiness is to be constantly finding new and novel ways to challenge yourself.

Frequently Asked Questions

Browse the FAQ or get in touch with one of our instructors for personal assistance.

Vikasa is located on Koh Samui, which is an island in the Gulf of Thailand. Vikasa is in the south east corner of the island, in between Chaweng Noi and Lamai. Vikasa is a 20 minute drive from Koh Samui International Airport (USM) and a 35 minute drive from the Nathon and Lipa Noi ferry terminals.

The best way to get to Vikasa is to fly into Koh Samui International Airport (USM).  There are daily flights into Koh Samui from Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and others.  We will arrange your pick up from the airport.

This will depend on where you are from. For details of Thailand’s visa arrangements with specific countries see here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visa_policy_of_Thailand

Although tourist visas are generally required, there is an exemption for travellers from 30 countries (Australia, UK, USA, France, Germany, Sweden and others) who wish to travel to Thailand for 30 days or less. If you are a citizen of one of these countries you do not need to obtain a visa. Note that if you plan to stay for longer than 30 days, it is possible to obtain a short extension from the immigration office on Koh Samui at some point during your stay.

If you are not a citizen of one of the countries with which Thailand has specific visa exemption or waiver arrangements, you will need to obtain a 30, 60 or 90 day tourist visa before arriving in Thailand

This retreat is suitable for practitioners of all levels

Yoga clothes, tropical climate clothes and swimwear.  Yoga mats and props and towels are all provided. You may want to add an excursion to your program such as a waterfall hike, in which case a pair of sneakers would also be handy. If you want to use the Sky Gym during your stay you’ll need gym clothes too. 

Koh Samui is a beautiful tropical island located in the Gulf of Thailand.  It is approximately 90 minutes from the mainland via ferry, but is easily accessible via airplane.  It has a population of around 70,000 people and has key infrastructure such as a small international airport, good medical facilities (including hospitals), banking facilities (including ATMs), good wifi coverage and good roads.  It is possible to drive around the entire island in around 90 minutes, and visitors generally either travel via scooter or taxi as walking is difficult.  Vikasa is located between Chaweng Noi and Lamai in a quiet area of the island.  It is possible to walk from Vikasa to nearby beaches, but guests generally stay on the Vikasa premises or rent scooters or taxis for trips to nearby markets and shopping malls.  The weather is generally hot year round, with temperatures often around 30 degrees celsius.

We recommend that participants download the free lifestyle guide and read up on the Vikasa Lifestyle before arrival. If you don’t have time to read it that’s ok too, we will review some content during your program. 

Our Escape Retreat is a week-long yoga adventure retreat where you can leave the monotony of daily life behind and jump into a new adventure. Explore the natural beauty of this exotic destination rich in culture and natural beauty with a group of like-minded adventurers.
