If you would like to be cared for and get great results, then you have to go to The Palms Retreat. After 12 days it was very hard to leave! Everything was amazing. The manager, Tanoi has many years experience working in detox retreats and ensures your stay will be fabulous. Nothing was too much trouble. I had one meal per day which was so fresh and tasty. The fresh juices etc you have throughout the day do not leave you hungry and the weight fell off. The programme is excellent and keeps you busy until mid afternoon. The yoga instructor, Ron, is a very genuine and caring person with a vast knowledge on health and you will love the routine he works with you on at your pace. I also loved the water aerobics with Marco. The beach is lovely and is 5 minutes walk away. The retreat itself is beautiful. Peaceful gardens brimming with birds etc. The villa's are spacious and in excellent order. Of course the massage each day was a highlight too. Nothing like a good Thai massage.
Stayed August 2016
The Palms Retreat is located in a beautiful and quiet corner of Koh Samui. Although I had visited the island before, I had a specific mission this last time – I am getting married next month and I wanted to lose a couple of kilos to ensure the dresses for my big day fitted well. But also, I wanted some “me time” so I could focus on my wedding and not just think about work (I am a PR executive and work very long days). In truth, I was burnt out.
I chose a 4 night, 5 day package (TPR publicizes 3,7 and 10 day packages but will tailor any length of stay over 3 days to your needs) and it was just what I needed. I lost just over 2kgs and felt so much better when I left!
In terms of the Retreat itself, it surpassed my expectations on so many levels, given the competitive price point.
Firstly, I really liked the Amrita shakes programme they use there. They are so filling and, coupled with a healthy meal each day, they provided me with all the energy I needed to do the rest of the programme.
Both Ron and Alicia were excellent yoga teachers and I definitely felt an improvement in my flexibility by the time I reached the end of my stay. Also, the staff are so nice and friendly, especially Minah, for whom nothing was too much trouble.
My room was comfortable, quiet and clean. I was happy just reading some days and went out shopping a couple of times.
Having been born and brought up in hectic Hong Kong, I enjoyed my escape to Koh Samui so much. I would recommend The Palms Retreat it to anyone who is looking to take some down time and/or shed some weight in a healthy, natural way. Now I just have to keep eating healthily and keep those kilos off until my big day!

I lost 4kg in one week! I feel amazing, physically and emotionally, having recharged my batteries, had some much needed ‘me time’ and learned how to continue to eat and exercise moving forward. I especially loved the Amrita shakes as I didn’t want to do colonic cleansing. The Amrita products are great! I never felt hungry and the shakes are delicious. The Thai organic soups and salads served daily at lunch time where deliciously healthy. I definitely plan to visit The Palms Retreat again. Great value and money well spent.

I had the best three days EVER at The Palms Retreat Samui and couldn’t believe how, in just 4 days, I could feel so much better and more relaxed. I will definitely return for a longer stay next time and looking forward to it so much!

I recently spent a very healthy 10 days at The Palms. Very comfortable
accommodation, very tropical environment split into small compounds , each with its own pool. Calm, relaxing with early morning walks, cold press juices, excellent massages , treatments and good detox weight loss program. Will I return when I need to re-energise? Most definitely.

The estate is a 10 minute walk from the beach, but what it lacks in seafront, it makes up in sublime garden surrounds, with a rainbow of trees, flowers and plants framing every view. Programs here are gentle and rejuvenating, offering a mix of healthy foods, restorative fitness activities and soothing spa treatments. It feels so indulgent, it’s hard to believe it’s good for you
