New Samui Retreat Partners with Leading Health Experts for Experiential Wellness Programs


The Palms Retreat Samui, is a wellness resort that offers a healthy lifestyle based upon the cornerstones of provenance, integrity and local experiences, is partnering with the island's most renowned health specialists and wellness practitioners to create unique and personalised guest programmes in line with its mantra, "It's all about YOU".

The three, seven and 10 day (or longer) detox programmes provide effective and practical strategies to alleviate toxins, as well as facilitate weight loss and also maintain a healthy weight. Our two initiatives - Easy Slim and Easy Detox – include a menu of daily smoothies (created from 100% natural Thai herbs and other natural  ingredients), together with a combination of yoga, meditation, physical activity, massage and indigenous Thai experiences -  all of which come together to  nourish both body and mind.

The Palms Retreat is located within a charming private estate in the northeast corner of Samui, close to beautiful, white sand Cheong Mon Beach. Each spacious 800 sq m compound has three air-conditioned villas, a spacious communal lounge and dining area and a 10 metre swimming pool.  The grounds are literally teeming with exotic flowers, fruits and colourful trees,  making this a perfect location for stressed out individuals looking to enjoy some "me time" in tranquil surroundings.  We also have a tennis court on site and free wi-fi throughout.

All inclusive daily rates include accommodation in spacious en-suite rooms (some with both in- and outdoor showers) a choice of one of the two "Easy" detox programmes, yoga and meditation sessions, a daily 60-minute daily massage, daily guided morning walk, introduction to SuperCharge Yourself ™ (a peak performance program), fresh cold pressed juices, complimentary herbal teas 24/7,  and, for those on the Easy Detox regime, healthy cuisine created from totally organic ingredients sourced from local farms and markets.

Individual plans for each guest are led by the retreat's General Manager, Ron Veldhuis, a certified wellness consultant, athletic and health coach, and devoted yoga instructor. He works hand in hand with Graham Rowe, Chief Naturopath  at Amrita, who designed the "Easy" detox programs;  Dr Will Engelhardt, who specialises in functional & physical medicine, counselling  and disease prevention; Khun Lat of Island Organics Micro Farm (Samui's only truly 100% organic farm);  and her husband, micro farmer (and award-winning photographer), Cameron Hansen, whose stunning work adorns some of the walls at the Retreat.

In addition to the activities above, guests can add personal training in an air-conditioned gym, kayaking, scuba diving/snorkeling, beauty therapies, personal meditation and yoga sessions, and many other activities.

Founder of The Palms Retreat, Susan Field, says: "We wanted to move away from the "one size fits all" detox programmes currently available in many resorts in Samui and instead work with the most highly qualified professionals to create a retreat that is personalised, offers amazing local "island experiences", uses organic products with authentic provenance and is situated in a beautiful and peaceful environment. We believe we have achieved our vision with The Palms Retreat, which will take guests on a truly unique and life-changing  journey."

All-inclusive rates start from USD229 (Thai Baht 7,350) per person, per night, depending on room category, season and selected programme. For two people sharing a room, the second person enjoys a 35% discount off the relevant rate.

The Palms Retreat has a special 20% discount OPENING OFFER throughout July to celebrate its launch
