Yoga Shala: “Yoga shala,” in Sanskrit, denotes the room or practice area where yogic practices take place. Many of the old yogic texts, in particular Hatha yoga ones, offer guidelines on how to design such a structure. Taking into account old wisdom and modern knowledge, we have built our shala. It is the central feature of M21547 and the hub of all activity.
Meditation Garden: We have created next to our yoga shala a garden for quiet contemplation, fire ceremony and other ritual practices, as well as meditation sessions.
Herbal Steam Room: Close to the pool and with windows looking out to the beach is our herbal steam room, which uses a combination of thirty Thai herbs, plants, and spices gathered locally on Samui.
Beachside Swimming Pool: Right by the beach is our swimming pool, which has plenty of sun beds and a large shallow area for children. In keeping with our efforts to stay as close to nature as possible, it is a saltwater pool, which is easier on your eyes, hair, skin, and internal organs than chlorinated water.
Beachside Lounge: Next to our dining area is a beachside lounge opening wide onto the beach, with panoramic views and gentle sea breezes (unless the wind is up, then it’s positively cool!). This area is equipped with a full-size screen for video presentations and movies, a library, and plenty of cushions. We’ll gladly connect your Ipod to the sound system if you want to share your sounds (within reason, of course). An offshoot from it is an extended private shala at the water’s edge.
Nearby attractions and activities:
As well as being a tropical haven of beaches, five star hotels and spas, Samui has a rich Buddhist heritage and is home to many active temples. Only a five minute walk from retreat is the Laem Sor Pagoda. With its shining golden tiles and peaceful atmosphere next to the mangroves and the ocean you can also visit the remains of Leung Poo Daeng, a realized monk and climb up to the Khao Chedi, high on the mountain with breathtaking views. Wat Kunaram is home to the preserved body of the revered Lung Padaeng, known as the Mummified Monk as he is still sitting in the meditation position over 20 years after his death. The most iconic Buddha statue on Samui is Wat Phra Yai, or Big Buddha temple not far from the Airport, where you can climb the steps up to see the large majestic Buddha. Only a short drive from here is Wat Ban Plai Leam where you will find is a large selection of intricately designed temples.
Beaches: For deep swimming beaches the North and East of Samui have less reef protection, with Chaweng’s powdery sands drawing in vast crowds of tourists from around the globe. A hub of shopping, nightlife and entertainment, this bustling metropolis feels like a million miles from the tranquility of M21547’s quiet beach.Silver Beach near Lamai is still reminiscent of old Samui with a few family run resorts and restaurants and is a favorite for swimming beach with the locals.
Fun for the children. Thins to do. With over 1,000 feet of bouncy castles, tunnels, slides and swings children under eight can burn off steam at Fairways, the islands first soft play center while parents relax in the coffee shop downstairs.100 baht per child, open seven days a week, 10 am-7 pm. Children and adults can get up close and personal with a range of tropical birds and animals at Paradise Park Farm.
