FAQs

 

DO I NEED TO BRING YOGA MAT AND TOWEL?

Yoga mats and other supplies are available on the spot. Unless your yoga mat is really wicked with a Batman logo on it there’s no need to bring it along 🙂 Daily fresh towels are also provided both in your rooms and in yoga spaces.

CAN I GET AN AIRPORT TRANSFER

Airport transfer is not included in the price and should be arranged prior to arrival.

Budget Option:
To get to the retreat from the airport, there are minivan services available at the Samui Airport for approximate THB 200/way

• Taxi transfer ($20/person/way)
We can help you arrange this option. A flight number is required for a pick-up to be arranged. Please send us an email to micku@thewildguru.com with full name, arrival date, time, and flight number at least 48 hours prior to arrival. Transfers are provided only to and from Koh Samui airport. No pick-ups from ferries are provided.

HOW DO I GET TO KOH SAMUI?

YOU CAN GET TO KOH SAMUI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT VIA:

• 2 direct flights from Singapore daily (Silkair and Bangkok Air)

• 2 direct flights from Kuala Lumpur daily (Firefly and Bangkok Air)

• 1 direct flight from Penang every second day (Firefly)

• 2 direct flights from Hong Kong daily (Bangkok Air)

• at least 10 daily frights from Bangkok (Bangkok Air, and Thai Airlines)

• see flights via Phuket, Krabi, Chiang Mai, Pattaya as these are often cheaper (Bangkok Air)

• Alternatively there’s an option to fly cheap with AirAsia from Kuala Lumpur or Singapore to Suratthani International Airport located on mainland. From where you will need to take a bus to Donsak pier, then a ferry or speedboat to Koh Samui, and finally a taxi to Vikasa.

WHAT’S THE WEATHER LIKE?

Koh Samui climate is tropical and high in both temperature and humidity. Most people find it pleasant. The average temperature is about 30 degrees Celsius, or 86 degrees Fahrenheit. When it is getting too hot, just enter an air conditioned room and you will “recharge your batteries”. A dip in a pool can also be very refreshing. Remember to drink a lot of water so you don’t become dehydrated. You will experience “summer temperatures” here year round. On some days you might find yourself in a refreshing tropical shower for a moment. The rain showers are often short and as island’s water supplies are finite, the rain is needed and important

DO I NEED TO GET A VISA TO COME TO THAILAND?

Standard tourist visa upon arrival is normally valid for 30 days upon arrival to Thailand without prior application for the most of passport holders. Please consult a Thai embassy representative in your home country just to double-check.
