Travel is one of the best ways to accelerate the development of our senses.  Opening and allowing yourself to be immersed in another culture is life-changing.  Traveling pushes us out of our comfort zone  - we may be faced with many fears; flying, safety, not understanding a language and getting lost.  When we decide to leave the comfort of our familiar lives and routines we also choose to grow  - growth can only happen through change.

 

We are so excited to announce our collaboration with Natural High Detox Spa/Wellness Eco Retreat and Luna Chica!  Together we have created a unique retreat package designed to nourish, renew, restore, and rejuvenate your entire body, mind, soul, and of course your senses.

 

A perfect combination of: 

gentle cleansing of mind/body/spirit

nature therapy, educational workshops & consultations,

 excursions, and cultural immersion blended together to create a true Sensory Adventure!

Natural High Detox Spa & Wellness Eco Retreat

Nakhon si Thammarat (NST) Thailand

 

Nakhon si Thammarat (or NST) is a well known region of Thailand on the Gulf of Siam, famed for its multitude of ancient temples including cave temples, set against a backdrop of mountains and waterfalls which are part of the enormous networks of Royal Thai National Parks. 

The area is also well known for organic farming, marvelous fresh food markets and great flea markets in town at the weekends.  NST and Surat Thani are home to several world famous meditation centers.

We will be staying at Natural High Detox Eco Spa & Retreat, a well known cleansing spa and wellness center founded by Sarah-Jane Goodall from the UK.  (more about Sarah-Jane below).   Our beach front accommodations are located on a the coastline of Khanom, lined with coconut trees and miles of sandy white beaches famous for the unusual pink dolphins of Khanom (do not be surprised if one swims by you).  This location is one of the few unspoiled beaches left on the planet and we want to take you there : )  If that's not enough - there are mountains, rivers, hot springs, & waterfalls too! 

All meals & beverages are included in the package, however, if you feel you need something more - there is a juice bar & cafe located on the premises.  Beach front cafe is housed in a large, airy, classic Thai ''Ban Mai'' or wooden house. Open daily. Our vibe is relaxed, quiet with good music, hammocks and salas for the ultimate castaway chill-out. All our ingredients are locally sourced organic produce.

This is going to be an EPIC sensory adventure!  Really hope you can join us!

FAQ:


Do I need a passport or visa?  You will need a valid passport with at least a 6 month window prior to expiration.  U.S. , Canadian, and most of Europe do not need a Visa to travel to Thailand.  .If you need a passport, allow at least 6-8 weeks from time of application to receive or you can pay an additional fee and have it expedited.  

 

Is it safe to travel in Thailand?  Just like anywhere else including the U.S., there are certain areas that are more dangerous than others.  We will be traveling to SAFE areas geared mainly for tourists.  Crime happens everywhere;  anywhere you travel, you need to use common sense and take standard precautions, i.e. be aware of your surroundings, don't flash valuables around, and don't leave your wallet on the beach, be respectful of local traditions.   

 

Will we have food during the cleanse or just juices?  Our package is for a "gentle" cleanse which means we will be eating fresh clean botanical food in addition to juices.  For those who may be experienced with cleansing and desire a more intensive juicing only cleanse, we can accommodate you for an additional fee.  Contact us for more information. 

Do I need to prepare for the cleanse?   To get the most out of your experience we recommend some preparation prior to the cleanse.  When you register, we will send you instructions and a consultation with more details on preparation before, during, and after the cleanse..  

 

Do I have to eat vegetarian or vegan? Although this retreat includes all vegan/vegetarian meals as part of our cleanse, there will be meat and seafood options available at the on-site cafe.  However, these are not included in the cost of the retreat. 

What should I bring?  When you reserve your space, we will send you a detailed information sheet of what to bring (and what not to bring) to ensure you are comfy and cozy and well prepared for the trip.

Can you help me with my flight?  Yes - we can guide you to help find the best flights & prices from your location.
