Surrender to the natural beauty of Thailand’s jungle oasis in your stunning room above the tree canopies during this digital detox and mindfulness retreat. Unlike most retreats, this one does not follow a set program and you decide how many nights you wish to stay. However, there are set activities for you to enjoy while on the retreat like daily massages and wellness treatments. Along with massages, partake in daily yoga for 60 minutes and daily breathwork with mindful walks. With all these holistic activities, you quickly discover the joys of distancing yourself from all tech distractions.

This retreat is a feast for the senses, for the spirit, and of course for the body. Included in the price of ฿29900 (£690) are three meals per day. The menu is a set detox menu or a la carte that consists of vegan and halal options. Also, all the non-alcoholic and non-blended drinks are included for you to indulge in. In an attempt to keep you on a healthier path, the retreat invites you to join the Thai cooking class or Zero-Waste cooking class. As you probably can tell, you won’t even miss your digital devices while you’re on your journey back to your old self.

As the name suggests, Samahita’s brain health upgrade and yoga retreat helps you care for and improve the state of your brain. The retreat uses organic ancient practices like yoga and meditation as well as modern technology and bio hacks to promote brain health. These modern bio hacks include light therapy, brainwave modulation through audio-visual entertainment, and EEG feedback. Sounds fancy, hey? I know, but it’s all worth it.

While at this retreat, meditation, yoga, workouts, breathwork, and nutrition form an essential part of your stay.  Additionally, the retreat welcomes both beginners and advanced yogis. Every day’s schedule runs from 7 am to 9 pm for five days at a total cost of ฿44050 (£1020). Yoga and meditation happen before brunch followed by Core and Float therapy plus a brain health upgrade session every day. Your brain needs good nutrition, especially the right fats, good quality sleep, and moderate body exercise which is exactly what you get at this retreat. Of course, while being fully tech-free.

I know giving up all your digital devices may seem like a scary concept. However, it is equally rewarding. In fact, the benefits speak for themselves. I mean, who wouldn’t want an improved attention span, better sleep, and better connections with their loved ones? With that said, escape to Kamalaya Koh Samui to rediscover your true life’s potential. During this retreat, you stay for three nights in a room of your choice. The main difference between the rooms is the views. Essentially, you have a choice between sea views and garden views.

Not only are three healthy meals per day included but also a historic Asian foot massage with herbal foot soak. For some exercise, take part in private yoga, Pilates, or a super stretching session. In terms of mental exercises during your digital detox, choose between meditation, private pranayama, or a Reiki session. It’s all about you for three days straight.
