      The accomodation was really nice and clean and the owners of the gusthouse are lovely.

      "First time visitor"

      Awesome training facilities. Being from America, the best part is the lack of douche bags at Santai Mai. This includes students and the training staff. Gyms in the States are full of douchers. No one at Santai Mai cares if you're a world champion or if it's your first time trying Muay Thai, if you want to train, get better and have fun, then you'll feel welcome and you'll progress very quickly! Also, the level of instruction is unbeatable, they don't let you slip with sloppy technique. These guys are the real deal, I learned a lot. I had the best training sessions of my life during my trip. I'll be back for sure.

      "Authentic Muay Thai camp!"

      This camp offers authentic Muay Thai training, you will be surrounded by trainers who are deeply passionate about the art, they have made a name for themselves in the industry, watching them and learning from them makes you understand why Muay Thai is a highly respected form of Martial Arts.

      They focus on your form and execution and they are very meticulous about it. It’s probably because it bothers them to see if you’re not doing it properly. I have learned so much from the 2weeks I’ve been there. And have met some amazing individuals who shares the same interest in the art.

      Everyone had such a great sense of humor & simultaneously vicious when deep focus calls for it. The fighters also train alongside the students during the training sessions. Seeing them train is extremely inspiring and motivating!

      Each trainer have a different style of teaching and also have their own expertise. You will gauge them better once you do the one-on-one with them during the sessions. I finally asked Kru Thailand for my private sessions. He was amazing and his teaching style works best for me, he ignited my passion for this art even more.

      As with everything else, you get as much as what you give to the training. They put their whole heart and soul into it, make sure you absorb as much as you can, it is something you take with you when you leave.

      This is the camp I will be going to over and over and over. I highly recommend this camp.

      Santai Gym is a great place to train! There are talented trainers for every level, the gym is well equipped, the accommodation is more than you would have expected for a Muay Thai camp and the town is remote enough to keep you focused, but also has most of the things you might need along with the cheapest massage place I have ever been to (which comes VERY handy). If I decide to go back to Thailand for Muay Thai, Santai will be my first and only choice.

      from London,

      As a complete beginner to Muay Thai, with a last minute decision and a quick search on Google I feel like I completely lucked out in choosing Santai Gym. I was only here for two weeks in between other travels, my main purpose was to get in shape and lose some weight (which I did, 4.5kg!). To an amateur turning up to such a place it can be an intimidating experience with the thump of pads being kicked, the shouts from the trainers and grunts from the fighters but after the first morning session we were made to feel right at home. The facilities, location, accommodation and, last but not least, the trainers are all perfect for such an experience. Only on doing some further reading did I realize we were being trained by such absolute legends in the Muay Thai game. They take they training seriously with a great sense of pride but do so with an amazing sense of humour and although they make you work hard, you have fun whilst doing it. There is a real family feel about the gym and after two shorts weeks I had learnt so much and was sad to leave. I hope I get the opportunity to return in the future.
