Training was great. Make sure you ease into it a bit as it is very hardcore exercise for 4 hours a day. I stayed a month and learned a lot. The trainers are mostly very friendly and helpful, if you want to focus on technique more than power or something like that tell them and thethey will accommodate for you. Rooms were good. On site cafe good. Ate a lot at a local place called Pornthips partway to the main road past the Meera restaurant that was amazing and big portions for cheaper prices than at the place called Tik's.
Pool was good to use and the area was quiet. Secular area for focusing on training which was what I wanted. You can rent motorbikes to go places though.
You will sweat so much here. Bring a smaller towel to class to wipe it off or be sitting in a puddle lol

The quality of instruction was good and there were plenty of instructors but at times the classes were too big. The accommodation was fantastic but I did not stay at the camp.

Everyone so helpful. A wonderful camp with a variety of restaurants on site. Anything you need or want they will help you out. Felt very safe and comfortable. The trainers are amazing. So good. So much space and time and just the best Muay Thai camp around. The local town has all the massage, food, drinks and shops. Also Dr's pharmacy and anything u need. Lovely beaches nearby and all the day trips if u want to do all that.

"2 weeks training beginner level at muay thai"
The trainers were both professional & friendly they look after beginners at the camp with a separate introduction to muay thai and cater to all levels up to fighter level. Training was organised and fun. Food is great at the pool restaurant and there are other restaurants closeby to switch it up ( Tiks restaurant & Happy Time are both really good) & great value for money.

"Perfect place to practice :) "
Instructors where amazing and professional! Group classes where really challenging!
My experience at Rawai was excellent and a definite 10/10. The reason for this rating is mainly due to the staff and trainers who were excellent and always going that extra mile to ensure that residents and students were all comfortable and progressing in their training. I observed trainers catering attentively to students of all levels. The accommodation and food in and around the camp was of a good standard. However, I would recommend those not used to the heat to opt for an air conditioned room or look for alternative accommodation in Khao Lak. All in all a wonderful experience and I hope to return again in the near future.
When I first arrived to Khao Lak Thailand to begin 1 month of Muay Thai training at Rawai, I had zero background experience with any martial art, let alone Muay Thai. I came in excited anxious but a bit nervous. I had read reviews that this camp was good for all levels but sometimes you just never know. However, what you read is what you got with this place. Truly fantastic. My first 3 days were spent with a trainer, separated from the main group classes to focus privately on learning the foundations of Muay Thai and focusing primarily on the techniques. After 2-3 days and when the trainer thinks you are ready for regular classes, you transition over. For beginners, like myself, I felt more at ease and more confident in my abilities rather than just being thrown directly into the normal classes with no private instruction. From the start, I fell in love with this camp. From the disciplined, motivating, encouraging, yet laid back staff to the friendly open minded and charismatic campers, my one month at Rawai was truly unforgettable. I made lasting friendships with people from all over the world and I will miss the lifestyle and routine I grew so accustomed to at this camp. I look forward to returning again next year....and who knows maybe Ill sign up to do a fight! Until next time Rawai!
PS. The customer service at this camp is exceptional. The women in the reception, the house-cleaners, all of the trainers and Diana. You guys rock!
