Welcome to Samui

Welcome to Samui
We live in a hectic and fast-paced world. We tend to external circumstances daily, but often forget to make time to nurture our “inner world.” Sun, sand and sea – this is Koh Samui in a nut shell. Every beach lover’s paradise, premier choice as a peaceful hideaway and a stress buster hotspot for the weary soul, Koh Samui will soothe your mind with its beautiful beaches and marvelous tropical settings. At Samui International Meditation Center offers practical methods of self-mindfulness and teaches you how to find life balance in its 7-day meditation retreat.

About Samui Meditation Center

The Samui International Meditation Center is located in Koh Samui, the tropical island paradise, one of the finest and most original holiday destinations in Thailand. Individuals from all around the world come to the island each & every season for an amazing relaxed experience surrounded by sun, sea and ever-present coco palm trees. The center itself is suitably designed for practice meditation. You will be introduced to an ancient 2,500-year-old Buddhist meditation technique called “The Middle Way,” the great life balance.


To foster a clean, pure and organized mind our accommodations are designed with a minimalist approach. However, we have left no stone unturned when it comes to making your stay comfortable and warm. The simplistic environment enhances a tranquil and relaxing experience.

NOTE: Male and Female live in separate cottages/rooms and the bathrooms is just beside the residential area. 

Healthy Foods

In today’s world of fast food and instant noodles take time to cleanse your body alongside your mind and soul. Enjoy fresh and delicious locally produced goods. You will have a variety of nutrient rich food that is locally produced and toxic free. Some of the produces are even organically grown within the premises of the retreat center itself. 

Most of the meals are non-vegetarian and will feature a wide array of dishes containing fish, meat and eggs. If you’re a vegetarian, please make sure to bring some dried vegetarian foods and inform us beforehand. Similarly, if you have specific dietary requirements specific to certain illness or health conditions, please let us know at least 7 days prior to your arrival so we can make necessary arrangements.

During the course of the retreat, we will follow the simple Buddhist monastic lifestyle and will not have dinner. There will be two meals per day. This dietary practice helps meditators get the right amount of energy and compliments the meditation practice.

Program and daily schedule

You will begin your day early at dusk by cleansing the mind and clearing your head with meditation before starting with the daily activities. We believe that to find peace both our mind and body has to be at ease. With this in mind, our program ensures your time is balanced throughout the day.
