Our location - Koh Phangan

Rumours have it that this idyllic isle is formed on a giant crystal, giving it powerful properties that amplify the energies, initiating spiritual transformation and healing for all who are lucky enough to visit. Koh Phangan, Thailand’s fifth biggest island, is an hour from the mainland and just 30mins by ferry from Koh Samui where the closest airport is located.


Recently designated by the Thai government as an 'ecotourism zone' to protect its unique rainforest ecology, this small tropical island is blessed with sandy golden beaches, bath-warm turquoise waters, spectacular dive sites, refreshing waterfalls, majestic sunsets, towering palm trees and awe-inspiring nature. The Thai culture is strong, with Buddhist monks walking the streets at dawn to collect ''Tak Bat" offerings, incredibly ornate temples, and delicious street food from vendors who sell everything from Pad Thai to deep fried dumplings.


A mecca for yoga, meditation, health, wellness and conscious events, there are foot spa's and massage places aplenty, with everything from contact-improv, ecstatic dance, cacao ceremonies and shamanic sound baths to kirtan taking place daily. The local village of Srithanu, where we'll be based, also has fabulous restaurants serving everything from vegan pizza to freshly caught fish and lots of lovely stores for shopping.

Our venue - Orion Healing Centre

Orion Healing Centre is one of Thailand’s leading yoga, detox and wellness centre’s. This healing sanctuary is tucked away on a serene bay just a short walk from the centre of Srithanu village.  An oasis nestled in tropical gardens, where beach and ocean meet, it's the perfect place to enjoy the soothing sound of lapping waves and sunset views while chilling in a hammock with coconut or freshly squeezed juice in hand. 


The local shops, foot spa's restaurants, cafe's, ATM's and Happy or Zen beach, where a nightly drum circle collects to honor the setting sun, can all be reached in a 5 - 10 min walk, while the islands stunning array of waterfalls, temples, jungle hikes, world-class snorkelling, diving, boat-trips, food markets and fabulous restaurants can all be reached by taxi in 10-30 mins or less — we do not recommend driving scooters due to the high number of accidents and injuries. 


Orion is set in lovely tropical grounds, overlooking the ocean. It's just a few steps to the jungle or ocean-view yoga shalas, treatment spa, herbal steam room, infrared sauna, and the award-winning, open-air vegetarian restaurant with ocean views, serving the best locally sourced, unprocessed, nutritionally-rich and delicious plant-based food.  It's a magical place to stroll through the gardens, rest in a hammock, chat with new friends over a coconut, detox in the steam room, or get a regenerating reiki treatment.
