I had a short stay at Sumalee, staying for 3 nights but there were plenty of people staying for long stints - weeks/months! The training is a high standard and the trainers let you work at whatever level you are able to. I was glad there was no egos from them or the people staying there to make it uncomfortable.... More

I did the yoga package for two weeks in April, and absolutely loved every aspect of it. I was most excited about the Muay Thai training. There are two sessions each day, and you can also book private lessons. There are several instructors at each training session so you get a fair amount of 1 on 1 time in the... More

I stayed at the sumalee boxing gym for one week and booked the yoga retreat programme, which contains 4 hours of muay thai and one hour of yoga a day.

Thanks so much for your comments. I know the whole experience was new for you and some people find Yoga more challenging than they imagined. Even some of our fighters are unable to do it!

Over the past month the Sumalee Boxing Gym has become a second home to me and leaving was exceptionally hard. The seven trainers excell in pushing you to your limits while still making sure there is always a fun vibe in the gym.
