Essential Retreat – Ar An Resort

Essential Retreat at Ar An Resort is the two-star budget option of New Body and Mind Retreats, a detox resort group, who also have four- and five-star options available on Samui as well as on the mainland in Khanom.

Photo of Essential Retreat – Ar An Resort The resort is extremely basic, with simple bungalows that have hot water and ceiling fans, but no air-con. Several packages are available, ranging from detox and weight loss to rejuvenation and even a substance recovery package. The prices are all-inclusive, and daily yoga classes and massages are part of the programme. Several outdoor activities are available for guests, including kayaking, table tennis, an obstacle course and gym equipment. This is by no means a place where the rich and famous go to detox, but rather a retreat offering quality treatments and a simple way of life. Rates are per person, inclusive of accommodation, all meals, daily massage, daily yoga class, laundry service.
