The Spa Koh Chang Resort, Thailand is the result of our passion to live a healthy lifestyle. My husband, Kamthorn and I, Piranuch are health practitioners (I, myself am a Doctor of Dental Surgery). In our normal life we live a healthy life. We routinely exercise. We cook healthy food for our family. We are really mindful about what we eat so that we do not consume red meat but only white meat mainly fish in our daily diet. We take extra care to the selection of food we choose to have every day and study cautiously what kind of food is nutritious for us. We choose unpolished brown rice instead white one, take as much fruits and vegetables as possible. Therefore our acquired knowledge of natural holistic health from our own interest, studying, training, and in-cooperate the practice in our daily life.
We had the opportunity to visit The Spa Samui Resort and tried their fasting for cleansing program (Detox Thailand) which was really effective for our health improvement. Thus, we would like to adopt their program to apply the service to our valued guest back at The Spa Koh Chang Resort too. Even though we are new in this business, you can feel our mere desire to help everybody to obtain their healthy objective in this health destination Thailand.
Moreover, We, Kamthorn and Piranuch, love to travel all around the world. We trekked on the Himalayas to Anapurana Base camp for 15 days twenty years ago and the second time in Nepal we took our two little children with us in a backpacking style again. We had a good memorable experiences of escaping from the rhinos in Chit wan national park, cruising in the Pheewa Lake, a good time in Guttmandhu, watched the rising sun above the Everest peak at Nagagod. That was a very nice and memorable impression until now.
We also drove to Shangri-La for 15,000 km for 20 days and drove around ASEAN countries as Luang Prabang in northern Laos, Li Pee Waterfall in southern Laos, Halong Bay in Vietnam, Angkor Wat in Cambodia, Malaysia, and Singapore. We have also been traveling all over Thailand especially in the last five years; we climbed to Phu Kradung every year. It would be a pleasure if there are those out there to share the same interest as us so that we can share our experiences and make your stay more precious to us as we are curtain that we, as a host, can be your good hosts as well as friends in Thailand.
“Let us serve you our BEST”

Fasting retreat Thailand
Yoga Teacher, Massage Therapist
Kailash Lim has immersed himself in yoga, meditation and bodywork in India, Thailand and elsewhere for close to thirty years, having studied with teachers from a multitude of traditions. Since 1999 he has been teaching yoga in Southeast Asia, India, Sri Lanka, Canada and Europe. This is his third winter high season as the resident teacher at The Spa Koh Chang. In 2013-14 he was the senior teacher at Island Yoga, a well-established yoga retreat in south Thailand. He has also facilitated meditation retreats and dharma programs in Thailand and India.
Kailash sees yoga as the art and practice of awakening the intelligence of the body through movement, posture and breath. He has an eclectic style, inspired by the Iyengar-adapted approaches of Erich Schiffmann and Dona Holleman, using the body to move towards inner stillness. He is particularly known for his ability to communicate to students a proper understanding of the mechanics of movement and posture. He covers a wide range of styles, from dynamic vinyasa flows to gentle restorative yoga, as well as pranayama.
In addition, Kailash also offers Chi Nei Tsang, a specialized form of deep abdominal detox massage from the Taoist tradition. This works to release physical blocks in the abdominal area which often have their basis in deeply held emotional blocks. The release of these blocks helps restore optimal digestive function.
Kailash also teaches workshops in Shibashi, or 18 Movements, a simple, gentle yet subtly powerful form of Taichi Qigong.
Well-known for his clarity and empathy in communication, Kailash also speaks French and some Mandarin. His commitment is to guide, nourish and support each student, regardless of their level, to explore the edges of their practice, and what it means to “do yoga.”
