"great workout"

The level of muay Thai training is excellent . It is done with 5 to 7 trainers at once . They are very routined in understanding your level and make great work outs with very Nice flow which would be impossible to find in europe .

everything was great, the food, the cooks, the cleaners, the accommodation, the training equipment and most of all the trainers.

The guys bushed you to your limits but not over your limit.

There was all levels and they where all catered for.

They provide high quality Muay Thai training. The trainers are of high caliber. They push people to do their best but also know how to have fun. They adjust well to different kinds of trainees, may it be a beginner like me or people who have been competing in Muay Thai. You don’t feel it’s a group session because they give you enough attention. Highly recommended and can’t wait to go back!

"Excellent instructors, clean accommodation, nice facilities"

Firstly communication with Lynn was very good. She was very prompt and sent me the relevant information about the retreat and how to get there. I stayed in a shared accommodation but because it's low season I had the room to myself! The rooms were cleaned daily (except Sunday) and though it's quite basic it's still comfortable and even includes a mini fridge - I enjoyed the daily servings of fruit to my room.

The muay thai trainers were amazing - funny, friendly, and motivating, which is much needed as you're working hard on your body and mind. As this retreat is more concentrated on muay thai, I wasn't sure what the yoga was going to be like but I was quite impressed by how challenging it was. The teacher had a great style and as there weren't that many people she helped you to adjust.

Overall I had a great time and would recommend this place. Check out their website too for things to do in Phuket and useful info about technique.

"Amazing training and good location"

First and foremost the Muay Thai training at Sumalee gym was incredible. The trainers are fantastic and you get loads of 1-1 time with them during the classes.They really take teaching seriously and they won't cut any corners when it comes to teaching you the techniques but they will also make sure the training is fun. They are all super polite and sweet and they will never make you feel awkward about your skill or fitness level. The ratio of teachers-students in the classes is excellent, definitely exceeded my expectations.There is also a nice balance of men and women in the gym which was a pleasant surprise as well. I feel like what I learned in Sumalee in 1 week would have taken me months to learn back home.

The yoga practice is also excellent and it's nice that it's different everyday. The classes are nice and active and you definitely feel like you can progress your yoga practice. I think the classes are also nicely balanced so that beginners don't feel overwhelmed but intermediate people don't feel under-challenged.

If you have a scooter, or any other way to drive around, the location of the gym gives you access to some amazing beaches nearby.

"Very catering for beginners "

The instructors were all more than happy to help you improve Muay Thai skills or stamina in group sections. There were tons of them and they all kept an eye out for weaknesses and mistakes at all time, and would friendly approach you and help you perform better proactively, without in any sense appearing to be lazy, condescending, disappointed or impatient. All in good time you would find yourself getting the gist of things. Private lessons were exceptional for new students eager to see major improvement in a short period, and good value for money too.

"Je grens verleggen."

De trainers muay thai zijn allemaal super vriendelijk en passen zich aan aan je niveau. En dat tillen ze in een week gewoon een paar levels hoger. Omgeving is vrouwvriendelijk. Je komt jezelf op een leuke manier tegen en terug in eigenland trots op deze fijne ervaring. Fit en energiek. Secretariaat erg vriendelijk en bij vragen hekelen ze je goed verder. Top ervaring!!

"Shara Fue mi maestra de yoga improvisada muy buena."

La maestra fue solo para mi. Ya que es un retiro para Muay Thai, la mayoria de los alumnos estan ahi para Muay thai. En particular todos los maestros de Muay Thai son excelentes 100% recomendados. Todos tienes una tecnica diferente la cual recomiendo que tomen clases particulares con ellos, aun que las clases en grupo son casi personalizadas al igual, asi que 4 horas al dia de Muay Thai terminas destruido. Buenisimo sumalee Gym.

"Ideal zum Entschleunigen und fit werden, gerne wieder"

Das Yogatraining war gut, steht aber bei diesem retreat nicht im Fokus.

Es gibt eine Stunde täglich. Flow yoga, draußen und mit leichter Entspannungsmusik war für mich eine neue aber angenehme Erfahrung.

Hauptsächlich kann man hier sehr gut Muay Thai trainieren. Dei Trainer sind hervorragend und auch ohne Vorkenntnisse wird man exzellent eingewiesen und verliert schnell eventuelle Berührungsängste. Das macht sehr viele Spaß und die Stimmung mit den Trainern allein ist die Reise wert. Einen gemeinsamem Ausflug zu einem Boxkampf in Patong kann ich nur empfehlen. Vorab fragen wann das stattfindet.

Essen und Unterkunft sind gut und vollkommen ausreichend. Ein kleiner Pool zum Erfrischen. 15 min Fußweg zu Geschäften. Viele gute Street food Küchen in 5-10 min.
