"I got a total reset that I needed"
The moment I arrived I felt at peace and so happy to be there. I have not felt so good for a long time. I was waking up everyday full of energy that lasted all day. The food and surrounding nature was magical! The instructors were very knowledgeable and willing to help with any issues I had about yoga and meditation. I really haven’t felt so good in years after the retreat. Daily visits to nearby waterfall was a routine and so rejuvenating. I am definitely coming back again and bringing my family!

"My first retreat. well priced and had a great time"
I don't have much to compare with, but I felt immediately very relaxed and part of the group of people staying.
The food is absolutely mind-blowing. Olga's recipes come from friends cheffing in 5-star Hotels, and she executes them brilliantly. There was a large selection, and something new at every meal for the 5 days I was there.
from Australia, September 2018
everything is very relaxed, the location is really good in the mountain with fresh air.
I stayed in the tent but still felt safe.
the food was really good, vegetarian food considering i don't usually eat only vegetarian.
the organisers were very friendly and caring.

The food was great. The instructors were really nice. I met some nice people there. The gong and tibetan bowl sessions were really good. Mediation sessions with Gregory were very good.
from Australia, July 2018
such a beautiful setting to take a few days out of it all, nurture yourself and eat delicious wholesome vegan food. The program of activities was great with a good mix of structured yoga and meditation as well as plenty of time to do solo practice or just relax- thank you!

"Great place,amazing food, even if it's a work in progress"
The food was absolutely stunning and the russian volunteers who are helping to establish the place and are often around, are very polite.
The different meditations with different people and also little workshops were very enjoyable and educational, since it gave many aspects of meditation.
I wish SunArt centre all the best for the future and I will come back if I visit Koh Samui again.
Also, I'm from South Africa, not Australia.

"3 Day Feel Good Now retreat"
I had a great experience here, being a total novice at meditation and beginner at yoga. The instructors were amazing, kind, positive and and very open. I learned to relax and let go, still my busy mind and appreciate what I have in the now. It was only a short stay but I’m inspired to grow and continue my practice.

"Good experience in great nature"
Thank you Roman and your team for being our host at SunArtCenter. Your retreat is really great located, Annas food was so delicious and I could not just do Yoga and Meditation, I really got some new insights and ideas thanks to the good discussions we had and as the center is really located purely in the nature, calm and far away from the stress. It was also positive that there was in those days no internet. I think you should leave it like this :-) .
You are a real positive and pure soul Roman. All the best for you and your team. Tara, Marko and Marilyn

"Los voluntarios son el alma"
El lugar es increible y los voluntarios como Rocio y Julian son el alma del retiro. Las conversaciones con ellos mientras compartiamos experiencias en la cocina hizo que nos sintieramos como en casa. Te dan una bien venida excelente que te hace amar el lugar desde el primer minuto. Las clases con Sergey de yoga por las mañanas son lo mas potente del dia junto con la meditación con el gong y los cuencos, tiene un don y te hace sentirlo y vibrar com toda la fuerza que lleva dentro.
Gregory solo va a dar clases de meditación pero a pesar de estar iniciando te lleva a otro nivel de concentración.
Sin embargo, se nota que es un negocio, las clases que estaba sustituyendo el dueño del lugar jamás habría pagado por ellas en una ciudad y mucho menos repetiría, hay desorganizacion y falta de preparación en sus clases. Tuve la percepción de que la filosofía de vida que predica no es la que practica ya que tras el intento de hacer una critica constructiva la actitud no fue abierta ni receptiva, por lo que me reafirmó la sensación de que para él solo es un negocio, sin embargo el hecho de habernos encontrado con el en el retiro e ir con una actitud de aprendizaje, nos hizo recordar y reflexionar, por lo que el balance de la experiencia es mas que positivo.

"Super entspannt und man fühlte sich wie zu Hause "
Ich bin einfach begeistert. Es ist ein magischer Ort in der Mitte von Dschungel auf der positivsten Insel Kho Samui. Das Essen ist rohkostbasiert, immer frisch und lecker zubereitet. Frische Gemüse als all you can eat! I habe richtig genossen die Meditationsrunden an den Wasserfällen. Ein Wasserfall ist hier 2 min entfernt. Magic Garten ist 5 min mur dem Auto entfernt. Dort hatten wir auch meditiert. Ich könnte mich tiefer mit der Kundalini Yoga auseinander setzen. HIGHLIGHT war Meditation mit nf Meditation mit Tibetischen Klangschalen. Ich habe an diesem wunderschönen Ort 6 Tage verbracht und ich wollte nicht weg. Sergej und Olga waren super nett und versuche jede Wünsch zu erfühlen. Sergej(Kundalini Yoga Lehrer) hat sogar mir einen persönlichen Kundalini Übungsplan erstellt.
Ich würde immer wider noch mal zurückkommen..❤

"Great overall experience"
This place offers a calm and peaceful environment to calm down, meditate and find your inner self. The waterfall is amazing and the viewpoint the best place to start the day with morning yoga and see the sunset over Koh Samui. As a beginner in yoga and meditation I was perfectly instructed and got great tips how to work on my inner peace and personal fulfillment. The food was delicious, very fresh and healthy! I had an exceptional stay and really enjoyed it. Thanks for this experience!

Had great yoga classes and enjoyed the kundalini and loving kindness meditation class. Learned a lot more about yoga and meditation and the filosofy behind it.

The place is wonderful, up in the mountains, very quiet. Everything is really clean. The food was completely amazing and really healthy.
The yoga professor, Priscilla, was also really good.
It's a place where you can really relax.
