Fantastic location right on gorgeous Lipa Noi beach. The atmosphere was healing and supportive.

The location was fabulous, perfect beach, sea and position of the retreat. It was rustic but that is what made it so lovely.
The staff were amazing, I felt really looked after and they were always on hand and keen to help with anything. I can’t praise them enough. The treatments were all fantasic, healing and well planned.
I was unsure at first that I had made the right choice but it turns out that the whole thing exceeded all my expectations, I made great friends both in the others there and the gorgeous staff team. I cant wait to go back!

"3 day detox program "
The energy of the staff was lovely everyone was always kind, bubbly and interested in how your day was going and what you had on your schedule. The beach is amazing the water is super clean, soft sand and shade areas as well. The rooms are more on the basic side but very clean (good linens) and spacious for what you need (you spend most of your time outside).
I enjoyed having a Schedule as it keeps you super busy which I think helped me do my fast with ease. It was my first time fasting for more than a day and the way they prepare the drinks you have is outstanding, I never had a headache, felt dizzy (even when working out), groggy or irritable which I was prepared for! I did follow their pre cleanse instructions at home which I must say I’m glad I did and I as think it helped my body transion much better and enabled me to get the most out of the program.
It’s easy to go and do their programs alone as there are others doing the same. Met some Lovely people from all over the world!
The goodie bag was lovely and having a Water bottle with refill points keeps you very hydrated and saves on having a multitude of plastic bottles!
Overall it was a very comfortable, cosy experience that really helped me prepare for my following yoga reatreat.

A life changing experience - delivered by a dedicated, caring, professional and friendly team. My 13 day "detox & fitness" program was well planned, holistic, fun and most important - effective. Having previously visited "five star" retreats elsewhere in Thailand I enjoyed my time at Orion more even though the accommodation is quite basic the beautiful beach location and the friendly vibe more than makes up for it. I loved it so much I re-booked for next year before I left!!! Thank you Orion!

The results of our detox retreat at Orion have been nothing short of amazing. We both jut got our trousers back from being altered a size down which we were when we came back. Guess what, they need to go back again, as they are once again a size to big and that's all in just a couple of weeks.
The gift you give yourself is exactly what it says on the tin, rejuvenation and vitality. We have a new kick in our step we were lacking before we went and we both are now sleeping around 2 hours a day less, WOW that's an extra day in a week if you add up the hours. Imagine that, we actually now have 8 days a week!!!
