The Hideout - Koh Yao Noi

About This Center


There is a secret waiting for you

A refuge.... an oasis... a sanctuary

Tucked away from the World that you know

Built from nature's bounty,

by those who call it Home

Where the only sounds you'll hear

are the music of the jungle and sea

And the only fear you'll have

Is missing a single moment of it

Step back in time, away from your World

to the hidden one that was made for You.


Away from the World.

Venue Highlights

THE HIDEOUT, KOH YAO: A sustainable, plastic-free, and electricity-free luxury treehouse retreat becomes the ultimate "Nurture in Nature” getaway! The Hideout welcomes guests to revitalize and rejuvenate with authentic healing experiences far away from the chaos of modern living.

From its inception, The Hideout has been proud to feature stunning open-air treetop suites crafted from local materials by island artisans, while also offering a veritable bounty for visitors seeking to unplug and lose themselves in natural and cultural beauty. But we also strive to be active participants in our guests' journeys to wellness, and our tailored packages are designed to nourish Mind, Body and Soul from a gentle and holistic approach.

From its inception, The Hideout's creator/owner worked hands-on with an acclaimed Thai architect and his tireless crew to realize her vision and minimize the environmental impact on the area. This level of passion and care for every tree, water source, and wildlife habitat — as well as how the resort would be seen from the sea and the air — is unprecedented in the region (and rare worldwide). It allows for an incredible sense of 'immersion' with the surrounding environment, to the point where hard to see where The Hideout ends... and the jungle begins!

Far from the beaten tourist trail, this 'Away from the World' gem on the lush jungle isle of Koh Yao Noi offers an unforgettable escape.


The Hideout features just 4 stunning open-air treehouse suites crafted from indigenous materials by local artisans on the sleepy isle of Koh Yao Noi, Thailand. From the beautiful island wood and bamboo frameworks to the intricately thatched roofs crowning each area of the resort, our goal is to offer our guests a one-of-a-kind escape — where raw nature and authentic cultural experience blend with just the right indulgent touches. This fusion of natural textures and colours, scents and sounds, and (especially) tastes combines to make for something truly magical and blissfully memorable. 

What you won’t find here are TVs, radios, buzzing fans, or noisy machinery of any kind — The Hideout is proudly electricity-free, aside from the solar-filtered infinity pool at the heart of the resort.

When you open the entrance gate to your private treehouse, you’ll first be greeted by a tasteful open-air bathroom level nestled in the treetops, complete with cool-water tub and rain-shower, vanity sinks and WC, and a host of complimentary organic and handmade toiletries. Then you’ll climb the stairs to the main room, which holds an eco-tourist’s paradise: a majestic thatched roof, rich wooden floors and furnishings, plush king-sized bed with mosquito net, and an unparalleled open-air panorama view of Koh Yao’s jungle, bay, and nearby islands.

The Hideout is a true luxury escape for adventure seekers or people who want to connect with themselves or their loved ones. Candles and stars light the sky in the night and the only sounds people hear are those of the nature and the waves washing ashore.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
