Phuket Retreats


Phuket is a beautiful destination with white sand beaches and wonderful places to explore and get lost in.

While quite built up in some areas of Phuket, for example the areas of Patong, the island is far less built up than famous Bali island in Indonesia.

If there’s one thing that these two tropical South East Asian island have in common, it’s being top destinations, maybe THE TWO top destinations for weight loss and detox retreats.

Phuket has resorts and retreat centres ranging from incredibly luxury to many budget and cheaper options for your weight loss holidays.

Phuket has incredible destinations for your detox and weight loss holiday too with retreats like Phuket Cleanse who push the meaning of their retreats into encompassing full body healing and rejuvenation.

Phuket and Bali are fantastic destinations, where do you think is best for a detox holiday?

    I have been looking for a good weight loss vacation in Phuket or somewhere else in Thailand just a place I can go to de-stress and invest in my health and fitness. I know there is atmanjai, phuket cleanse and also I heard that even tiger muay thia is good. Not a retreat but good for fitness training

    phuket can be nice especially in the north of the island in places near bang tao beach just don’t go south to Chalong and rawai

    AVOID PHUKET! It is definitely not the best place for a weight loss holiday there are much better places in Thailand like Koh Samui or go to Chiang Mai! Bali is way better than Phuket much better for weight loss and detox yoga retreats.

    Is Phuket really the best place for a detoxifying holiday and also because I want to lose weight? Are there now better places in Thailand for me to get in shape like I heard once that there is a good detox centre up in Chiang Mai but now I have forgotten it’s name.
    I want to go to Thailand for a weight loss holiday but of course I also want to get a feel for like how the culture is and everything in Thailand. So maybe Chiang Mai or somewhere more inthe norther area of Thailand is better than Phuket for me? Need help!

    Phuket is overrated for detox weight loss vacations and there is much better retreats in Bali. But also there are places in India too. Phuket is overcrowded and the people there are much more about Muay Thai then the weight loss with Yoga and Pilates like most of us on this site want. I have done a weight loss retreat already on Phuket island and never will I again!

      Agreed Phuket is not the best place for a weight loss holiday. I made the mistake before of trusting to go on a detox program in Phuket and was very disappointed. Maybe there are good places to go for weight loss on the island but where I went to is a place I would not go again.
