I booked a four week trip, and left after two weeks even though I wasn't given a refund. It didn't seem worth it to stay.
I googled 'Thailand weight loss retreat' and found this place. A more honest description would be simply 'Muay Thai camp'. The Muay Thai classes were perfectly fine- the Thai instructors are friendly enough, but there isn't much about this place that is dedicated to weight loss.
I was not happy about the lack of healthy food options (the menu onsite is oily and has literally no vegetables) and the fact that there are no weights. Aside from a few medicine balls and a rusty bench press station, you pretty much can't weight train for the entire time you're here. I love strength/weight training and think it's important, so I was quite disappointed about this.
I was hoping the 'cross training' classes would be like crossfit classes, but they're more like basic circuit classes with body weight exercises. I'm sorry to say, but I found the instructor (I won't say his name. Not Mike) to be very condescending and uninspiring. I love fitness, but these classes just weren't enjoyable for me.
Finally, it really is in an isolated location. If you love beaches, they're a few kilometres away and they are nice enough. The accomodation at Bai Bai house is lovely and good value for money. However, as I really wanted a fitness holiday I ended up moving to a busier location in Thailand for much better fitness training.
I'm sorry to leave such a negative review, and I'll say again that the accomodation is lovely and the Muay Thai training is fine. However, I thought it was important to leave an honest post because all I read were positive things about this place, and I was consequently quite surprised and disappointed when I arrived.
