    I stayed at Orion for 16 days at the beginning of January, I experienced both the Yoga and Healthy Living program and the Cleanse and Detox one...and after a couple months I still have no words to properly describe how great everything was :)The location is dreamy, the atmosphere is peaceful and loving, the staff is experienced and ready to help with anything you need, the food is delicious. To say that I had a transformative experience is an understatement: I actually thought about moving there to be part of this incredible project of Orion. I stayed in one of their bungalow inside the property and I barely moved for my whole stay, you really have everything you need in this incredible happy island. Yoga classes are amazing and you can choose among a lot of different styles and teachers, there are plenty of workshops to keep your body and mind busy if you want, or you can decide to be on your own if you prefer some solo time, there is never any pressure or judgment, everyone is ready to help with a smile, you really feel at home and part of the family as soon as you get there. I met several wonderful people that I hope to keep in my life forever and I will definitely be back as soon as I can. Thank you to chef Cooper for his delicious food, all the reception staff and everyone for their great job. Orion is a precious, unique place in this world full of pain and anger and I look forward to going back!!

    Orion's is one of my happiest places on this planet! Not only does the team create an exceptionally beautiful and tranquil environment but there are also remarkably qualified yoga teachers, lots of inspiring workshops and events to choose from every day, and the most yummy vegan food of the island. While I was there in January 2023, I already reserved my spot for 2024 - just to make sure it won't be sold out until then 😉

    Amazing facility, located in the heart of Srithanu directly at a beach. Incredible selection of courses related to yoga, meditation, movement, spiritual practice, breathwork, shamanic ceremonies, creative endeavors, ice baths and sauna.Also they have the best vegan restaurant on the island, by my estimation. Incredible food.Overall the energy and vibes are very good, relaxed and uncomplicated. I will always come here when on Koh Phangan!Peace & Love

    I loved my time at Orion. I did the 16 day package but many people stay for different lengths of time. There were lots of yoga and workshop options, access to a large range of incredible practitioners and amazing vegan food prepared by the kitchen - it is enough to make you reconsider your meat eating ways. The staff in the office are all really lovely and very accommodating. Highly recommend it - planning my next visit!
