Most of our meals will be at Kin Dee – Mala Dhara’s incredible, vegetarian restaurant. The menu changes with the seasons, the harvests and the creative juices flowing through the kitchen. They don’t just accommodate vegetarian and vegan guests with options or alternatives – they prepare vegetarian meals that stand on their own jump off the plate, vie for your attention and delight your senses! There is so much to love about Thailand – especially the food!

Why Retreat?

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

Retreats inspire me to continue to practice and fuel my journey. I always find specified intention and feel it projects me closer to my purpose. Shannon

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.
