About this trip

Join Janya on the 5th expedition to her beloved homeland during the Festival of Light! For nine memorable nights you will immerse in awesome nature--vibrant jungle & magical beach, sweet people, lovely Thai culture and sumptuous cuisines, sacred temples, and more. Each day begins with an inspiring flow yoga and ends with a meditative yin & restorative yoga. You have all day to relax at the splendid resorts, luxuriate at the spas, or take personal or group excursions to the gorgeous locales. You will be fully rejuvenated and come home with lasting memories.


Stay at two amazing locations handpicked to represent the best of Thailand. The first 5 nights are in Chiang Mai at a luxe eco-resort in the mountain on the bank of a river next to an elephant camp. Wake up to the fresh morning mist with yoga by the pool. After breakfast you can walk to take the elephant ride or sit at the picturesque riverfront cafe and enjoy watching the majestic elephants walk by. You will go on a walking temple tour, visit local markets, and see the idyllic Old City of Chiang Mai--the Northern Capital of Thailand rich with historical and cultural treasures. You will celebrate the Festival of Light (Loy Kratong & Yi Peng) with the locals in Chiang Mai City. The last 4 nights are spent at an ultra eco-luxury resort on the most gorgeous beach with a stunning ocean view at Koh Yao Yai Island of Phuket. The short flight from Chiang Mai to Phuket and the speedboat ride to the island are well worth the trip.* You will stay in a teakwood villa that blends in perfectly with the natural mountainous surroundings. You will have a rare, private stretch of beach frontage, unrivaled guest facilities that include a spectacular waterfall swimming pool and world class restaurants serving the absolute best in Thai and global cuisine. Spend each day soaking in the saltwater infinity pool and be mesmerized by the unique ocean view or swim in the warm crystal clear ocean. Your body will be supple, your heart will be delighted, and your memory will be filled with breathtaking moments.


*Retreatants will be advised to purchase a specific one-way flight (to be confirmed after September 30) from Chiang Mai to Phuket. A domestic flight from Bangkok to Chiang Mai is approximately two-hour long and cost about $100.
