The retreat venue

Wareerak is the ideal place to escape during cold winter months and retreat from the hecticity of urban life. A magical landscape with jewels of healing waters mystically spread throughout the property. The founder and owner of Wareerak is the one who, years ago, found this hidden hot waterfall in nature that a monk had told him about. For years he kept the place secret, in a wish to preserve its raw beauty and would come only with his family for day trips from time to time. After a few years he eventually shared his discovery with the Thai government and helped build a natural park around this newly found site. After the purchase of the land across the river, he started building his vision for a place filled with beauty, that could also host guests to experience this natural wonder with healing properties of the waters. The property is a true little eden on earth, filled with flowers, fruit trees, incredible lush gardens that surround the pools that completely and seamlessly integrate in the natural surrounding.

Getting there

Most visitors going to Krabi choose to fly into Bangkok, then take a connecting flight to Krabi Airport (KBV).
Pick-up from the airport will be arranged via mini Van. Cost is 1500 THB equivalent of 40€. The fare can be shared between up to 9 people. The pick-up will be arranged in such a way that guests can come together if possible as long as flight times are a match.
You can also get to Krabi from Phuket, by land or water. Ferry/speedboat, bus and ferry are the three main ways to travel in that case. Thailand is highly organised and moving from one place to the next is very easy and straightforward.

How to plan your trip

If possible we highly recommend to add on some more time in Thailand before or after the retreat. Krabi is famous for its scenic views and breathtaking beaches and islands. The coral reefs in this part of Thailand are one of the world’s most beautiful, which makes  Krabi an ideal spot for diving.
With attractions including wildlife sanctuaries, sea caves, coral reefs, exotic marine life, limestone cliffs that draw rock climbing enthusiasts from around the world, and national Parks that include the Island paradises of Koh Phi Phi and Koh Lanta, one could easily spend weeks in Krabi and leave yearning for more. Let us know in case you like any idea on where to go and we are happy to give some recommendation.
