I just wanted to express my thanks and gratitude to PhuketFit. I had a FANTASTIC experience that I will never ever forget. The staff were all so lovely, friendly and helpful and I thank you very much for that. I loved the exercise and the healthy food – I wish the chef could come home with me and cook my three meals every day!
I would love to come back one day.

I wrote a short thank you note review about PhuketFit about a week ago, but I’ve been thinking a lot about the retreat almost everyday since I’ve returned home and wanted to make a full review to help people make an informed decision about choosing this retreat for your weight loss, fitness or detox holiday.
I want to cover what PhuketFit IS and what PhuketFit IS NOT; I’d like talk about their facilities, accommodation, location; I want to tell you about their nutrition and detox, their trainers, coaches, consultants and staff, and I want to give you a quick run through of my experience and the results I got on my 28 day weight loss program.
I think first of all it’s important to realize that PhuketFit is not a spiritual, holding hands and chanting type place, I’ve been to places like those before and they can be fun too, but that’s not what this is. PhuketFit Retreat is a place where people from all over the world with similar goals come to get results. If you’ve got a lot of fat to lose, PhuketFit is the place. If you want to detox your body, PhuketFit is the place. If you’re unfit and want to get into shape, PhuketFit is the place.
I met a lot of people at the retreat and we all chatted, laughed and had fun together. It felt like a family and through this I also learned a lot about what other people were experiencing and the things that came up again and again, are that it’s “scientific” the programs are designed specifically for you and that means you get the best results, in the fastest amount of time. The food is “amazing”, the nutrition really is out of this world, not only how it tastes, but how it makes you feel! You feel like a new person your body has EXACTLY what it needs to perform at optimal levels, it’s just incredible what happens when you start getting the right nutrition for your body and metabolism.
And it’s “A LOT of fun”! Everyone loves all the different classes from Zumba, to TRX, Yoga, Muay Thai, Pilates, and all kinds of other fun fitness classes — it rocks! The trainers are amazing, they train everyone to their personal level and there are also classes for specific levels too, I was in the beginner classes for the first two weeks and then started doing intermediate classes after that.
The accommodation at the resort is pretty good, it’s not really luxury or anything, but it was fine for my needs. I had a standard private bungalow and it was great. I know others booked at the luxury resort just a minutes walk away from PhuketFit, and that’s something I may consider when I return. But overall, the resort is great.
The facilities I was really surprised about because it being Thailand and everything I thought maybe the facilities would be old or something. But I was shocked when I entered and saw they have more up to date equipment than I have at my local gym here in America. Really great equipment and facilities.
The trainers, coaches and staff were amazing. My coach helped me with so much personal support, the trainers gave me all kinds of tips and were just so nice, and the staff were always there checking to make sure I had everything I needed. It was really super.
My results from my 28 day weight loss program were nothing short of miraculous. I’d been struggling to get rid of some stubborn fat on my stomach ever since my first child and whatever I did it wouldn’t budge. What I didn’t realize is that I had just about ZERO chance of losing the fat the way I was doing things, I didn’t realize it took a 3 pronged approach and I could never have done on my own. Thank you so much Serge’ you are the main reason for my weight loss, thank you! And thank you to everyone else who helped me along my journey!
Well my time here again has almost come to a close.
Once again I have enjoyed it immensely, thanks largely to you and your staff. You all make us feel very welcome and are sooooo helpful with anything that we need.
I have spoken with Melissa my daughter and told her I am planning to come back in about June and she wants to return with me and her husband, that would be fun.
I have listed below a few constructive ideas to share with you and please remember that these are put forward with the best of intentions. I have absolutely NO complaints!!!
I understand you are going through a transition phase and with the loss of Justin and Mark changes have to be made.
Leah will be great as she works into the job, she has big shoes to fill but I believe she is up to it!
My comments are as follows:
Detox staff….n/a…but meeting up with Om again is always a pleasure
Fitness and gym staff service….excellent
Cleanliness to gym….excellent (the young lady looking after the gym keeps it spotless, even the windows)
PERSONAL REQUESTS that I think everyone would like:
Please return the TRX a to daily schedule, maybe another staff is needed to handle the load.
TRX a little later, I understand the reason for the time change but 2pm is a little too close to lunch for an effective vigorous workout
Suggesting mosquito coils on the workout area floor for the late afternoon
Suggest mosquito coils in the restaurant after 5pm
TRX straps badly need replacing, the majority of current straps slip constantly, in some classes there were not enough good ones to go around. Fortunately I had bought my own from home but I know it must have been frustrating for Leah and some of the others.
Serge was his usual cheerful self and I learn so much from him on each visit.
Please take all these suggestions in the spirit they are given, I look forward to my next visit.
I’ve just completed a 7-Day Total Fitness program at Phuketfit and would like to like to recommend PhuketFit to anyone who is considering doing a similar one .
The program is well structured and very well executed. It started with consultation to understand my objective, lifestyle and fitness level, which were the basis of recommendation for my diet daily calories target and activities. The diet plan wasn’t fixed – I chose from the menu (with calories chart in mind) It was a good way to learn to think before I order – a habit I will benefit from in real life. All the food were delicious too.
The fitness classes included group full body workouts, Muay Thai, TRX, yoga, pilate and zumba. I tried them all except the advanced classes. All the instructors were great. I especially enjoyed the classes by Justin (group & circuit workouts and personal training) and Mark (TRX) – their classes were innovative, motivating, challenging but suited for all levels and you’d feel so proud of yourself after the sessions!
Phuketfit creates an environment where all members are comfortable regardless of shape or size. I was fortunate to share my time there with some very interesting members from all over the globe (British, Australian, Indian, Turk, American, Russian, Swiss, Asian…) all friendly and encouraging towards each other. So not only was the program good for you, it was fun too. I liked it so much that I am returning with boyfriend at the end of the year!
A few tips for future clients:
* bring or buy (in Phuket) headbands if, like me, you don’t want sweat dripping in your eyes
* bring or buy insect repellent. Mossies are abundant late afternoon (during TRX especially)
* if you are going during wet season, bring a raincoat
Some suggestions for Phuketfit:
1. Sat morning schedule is very light. I started my program on Sunday (rest day) and departing Sat afternoon (ie missing Sat afternoon programs). With Sat morning offering only breathing/meditation Pilate after 8am, I only practically had 5 days training I instead a full week. Please consider adding a fitness session on Sat morning
2, if you offer cooking classes throughout the week at extra cost I would very interested. Please consider 2-3 lunch time classes a week.
Did a 10 day detox (7 day full fast)
I went into the challenge of a full fast a little nervous but was surprised at how quickly the days passed. I feel much stronger having completed this and feel as though I can achieve things I couldn’t have before. I also really loved the food and beautiful presentation of all the raw meals, I will definitely be trying some of these back home. All the staff in the Detox house were really friendly and helpful and made it a very welcoming atmosphere.
Thanks very much, Ill definitely be back in the near future.
I did a 5 day raw food detox, followed by a 5 days of eating at the Healthy Kitchen restaurant. Overall, the experience was beyond my initial expectations. All the food was prepared and delivered in an extremely professional environment. I had never eaten raw food before and absolutely loved it.
On the 9th day here, I had all my measurements retaken and was thrilled to see how much I’d lost. I would absolutely recommend Phuket Fit to friends and family and look forward to returning.
A big Thank You to ALL the team.
Did a 5 day Juice Fast
Really feel so much better after. Think I’m going to try juice fasting 3 or 4 times a year from now on. The group I detoxed with were very friendly and supportive and the girls at the Detox house were great.
Many thanks for a fantastic week of raw food ! I have truly enjoyed the opportunity for rest, healing and fitness in this incredibly supportive environment and appreciate all the amazing staff in the kitchen, gym, detox centre and reception – all so welcoming, delightful and talented! I look forward to future visit
With all best wishes and warmest regards
PS Lisa is running late to meet taxi for flight – wishes to express her gratitude as above with love to all the team also. Lisa
