Creature comforts? or traditional Zen bungalow style? the choice is yours.....
The beautiful and traditional accommodations and grounds are vast with an expansive view out to the ocean, allowing you space between activities and room to wander and reflect.. It has a chilled ambience; a sense of calm and quiet beauty that encourages study, self-development and contemplation.........
BEACH BUNGALOWS bring guests close to nature while providing every convenience. The rooms are quite modest, rustic both inside and out, yet clean and comfortable they feature twin or queen-sized beds and direct beach access. A private terrace allows you to take in one of Samui’s spectacular sunrises. All bungalows come with simple interior bathroom with hot shower, AC, mini fridge, and a safety box.
ZEN BUNGALOWS are perfectly named, being traditional huts built with local, natural materials. They provide an opportunity to leave contemporary hotels behind and feel yourself become totally at-one with Koh Samui’s natural surroundings, with the stunning views from our cliff-top location right outside your door.
Food is prepared and served at the on-site restaurant, the VIKASA LIFE CAFÉ is both healthy and delicious. It’s also a hub for the community at the resort and a great meeting place. They have excellent access to tropical fruits, organic food and fresh local produce which is conducive to transformation, healing, detox, fitness or just healthy living. You will feel a physical transformation just by eating their delicious and healthy food everyday during your stay.
Vikasa serves wholesome health-conscious meals in buffet style (included in the price). Kickstart your day to an amazing brunch. A freshly squeezed juice, tea and coffee, a sunny side up or vegetable omelette, wholegrain toasts, oatmeal/ muesli with yoghurt, or chia seeds pudding, superfoods, boiled veggies with specialty in-house organic dips, vegetarian sandwiches or pancakes, and of course a variety of fresh-cut tropical fruits. Dinner includes a hot soup, typical local dishes with tofu, brown rice, two or three vegetarian dishes, fresh salad, dahl, and always one seafood dish. For dessert they serve fruits and occasional delectable mango sticky rice, a true Thai speciality. Their homemade signature tea is a perfect companion to your meal.
