ACCOMMODATION

PURE packages – accommodation included:

Included in our Pure Yoga Retreats  packages is accommodation at the Bamboo Huts, in simple Thai style bungalows surrounded by lush, well tended gardens, with the refreshing ocean, white sand, Yoga shala, and multiple eateries just a few minutes away.  

A perfect compliment to the minimalist yogi lifestyle, these simple, rustic wooden bungalows have a double bed, small bathroom (no hot water, but trust us – that’s a good thing!), fan, limited shelving/clothes hanging, and a hammock on the deck so you can relax and take in the paradise vibes. It doesn’t take long from the time you step off the boat, to realise that in fact, simplicity offers you space to grow in your practice, and yourself. Yogis have been teaching this for centuries.

*Please note that Pure Flow is an independent yoga school only with no onsite accommodation. We have organised preferential booking for our “Retreats in Paradise” students at the nearby Bamboo Huts Resort, and these rates apply only when booking a package through Pure Flow Yoga.

  • Sunscreen & Natural mosquito repellent – To protect you (and the environment) Also available for sale on the island
  • Flashlight – To help you see the paths between beaches at night
  • Quality earplugs – For meditation and also for Friday and Saturday nights, which are party nights here in the bay. It is best to come prepared if you are a sensitive sleeper. You can also purchase from pharmacies on the main part of the island
  • Alarm Clock – Its nice to have a simple alarm clock that isn’t your phone so you can have a bit of a digital detox.
  • Spending money for your entire stay – There are no ATMs on our part of the island. You can exchange cash, traveler’s checks, and use your debit card and visa in Had Rin (a 300 Baht boat ride each way) where there are plenty of ATM’s, exchange centers, and banks.  We always recommend bringing more than you think you’ll need just to be safe.

THANK YOU! My experience with Pure Flow Yoga changed my life in so many ways and last year, I finally found the courage to follow my dream of moving to South America, inspired by you and the other people from the retreat. Life in Ecuador, where I live now, is a roller-coaster to say the least, but I’m very much enjoying it and have decided to stay for another year. I wrote something about my experience on retreat, in case you’d like to read it here.  You’re an inspiration and a life-changer and I send you so much love from the other side of the world.
