March 22-29, 2019
Come spend a week with us at the stunning Oasis Yoga Bungalows in Koh Lanta, Thailand. Sleep steps from the beach, explore the island, and move the bod into fun shapes with two classes a day taught by our very own Keela.
The rundown: fly into Krabi, jump in one of our vans, and drive to your new home for the week. We’ll have our first yoga sesh and a family welcome dinner on the 22nd. Two classes a day from there before we head out on the 29th. When we’re not doing yoga, there will be plenty of time for grade A beach lounging, island hopping, and food-venturing in and around the resort.

How do I get there?
Fly into Bangkok and take any number of regional flights into Krabi (including Thai Air or Bangkok Airways). To get the best flight deal and schedule, we recommend that you book your flight to Bangkok first, then book your flight from Bangkok to Krabi separately.
You can also fly into Phuket, but there may be an additional transfer cost from Phuket to Koh Lanta.
If you have the time to explore other Thai cities, we recommend heading up north to Chiang Mai, spending an extra day or two on the streets of Bangkok, or jumping over to the other side of the country for some more island hopping on Ko Tao, Ko Samui and Ko Pha Ngan. If you need advice planning any of this, just ask!
Do I need a visa?
U.S. citizens carrying a tourist passport and in possession of an onward or return airline ticket do not require a visa to enter Thailand. Just make sure your passport has at least six months validity remaining (they take that stuff seriously). Upon arrival, you’ll get a 30-day stamp, which you can extend for an additional 30 days (ugh, we’re jealous) by paying a 1,900 baht fee to the Thai Immigration Bureau office.
Do I have to fly through Bangkok?
Not at all! As long as you can get yourself to the Krabi airport, we can pick you up.
Can I use my credit or debit card?
It’s easiest to use Thai baht when out shopping or eating as using your card will incur a fee. There are many ATMs you can use to withdraw Thai baht with your American debit card. You can also exchange money at the airport.
What are temps like during the day...does it drop at night? Is it rainy?
During March the average temperature on Koh Lanta is 85°F during the day and 77°F at night. It rarely rains on the island this time of the year, but it doesn’t hurt to pack a light rain jacket just in case :)
How do you get around the island?
You can walk to lots of shops and restaurants from Oasis on the main road or the beach. If you want to venture further, it’s easy to hire a tuk tuk (fun little rickshaw-cabs) or rent your own motorbike through Oasis for daily or weekly rates.
Are there vegetarian food options?
Yes! A typical breakfast at Oasis includes fresh homemade bread, homemade chia seed granola, homemade yogurt, local veggies, fresh eggs, loads of tropical fruits, cheeses, sweet potatoes and cold pressed juices. Lunches will be Thai, prepared clean, light, and fresh with an option of chicken or veggie. Snacks will include smoothies and fresh tropical fruit. When eating out you can always choose a vegetarian option.

See you there, hot stuff.
