International Elite Shaping Up at ‘Panacea’,
Koh Samui’s Newest Active Retreat
Ultra-exclusive hideaway embraces global fitness craze with personal trainers in Thai Boxing, yoga and tennis
Personal instruction in Thailand’s national martial art Muay Thai, yoga and tennis now headline an exceptional range of sports and fitness attractions for the international elite at exclusive new tropical retreat PANACEA on Koh Samui.
Against the backdrop of breathtaking panoramic views, physical and mental discipline also extends to yoga instruction at daily classes or private lessons, workouts in a state-of-the-art gym, and personal coaching including a ‘ball canon’ at the hideaway’s floodlit tennis court.
The all-villa hideaway has its own dedicated boxing ring and personal trainers for the ultra-affluent to learn and practice the high-adrenalin fitness craze of Muay Thai.
Muay Thai, the most dynamic activity on the menu, is known as "the art of eight limbs" because of its combined striking with fists, elbows, knees and shins. The exhausting regime has also been recognised worldwide as a quick-fix to bulging waistlines and stress. Burning over 700 calories an hour, it is widely acknowledged to far outweigh the health benefits of more sedate fitness exercises like jogging on treadmills and aerobics.
Top-flight coaching in various disciplines at the 5-star boutique resort is inspired by the owner’s passion for sport, including a high-end martial arts gym in London.
The new ‘experiential’ concept fills a niche in the boutique resort market for providing professional-standard fitness and sports training to affluent guests.
“Every boutique luxury resort has its own stamp of individuality, with elements that set them apart, and our concept is reinventing the private villa experience. We believe many of our guests want more than just the unadulterated luxury and relaxation of a 5-star resort,” said Panacea General Manager Milos Kosanovic.
“They’re busy, wealthy individuals who need to be on top of their game, taking time out to invest in their health and wellbeing.”
Exceptional facilities extend to spa pampering and detox program and aqua aerobics, as well as more leisurely pursuits such as meditation and cooking and drawing classes for guests who prefer a more relaxing retreat.
The resort also offers stylish entertainment, with its own lounge-style cinema, elegant cocktail bar, karaoke club and billiards room.
Beyond the resort, a full menu of "active" outdoor activities includes hiking, mountain biking, golf and a vast range of watersports from jet skiing to paddle boarding.
“In short, our guests can push themselves if they want,” added Panacea General Manager Milos Kosanovic. “Our experiential concept is all about adding substance to a lavish experience.
