It is difficult to find a place to begin how much Nirvana has changed our lives.
Carlo and Natty are the two factors that makes this such a wonderful place. From the neighbors to the staff to every design feature of their resort it comes from their passion. They are wise, kind, caring, attentive (an offhand remark of a desire or a preference and you will find it magically delivered the next day). I've worked in the luxury hotel industry for almost two decades and I've never seen this level of attentiveness.
If you are here for detox (yes to American ears it sounds extreme), I could not recommend their process more than saying I've never felt better in my life. The yoga and tai chi at sunrise, followed by beautifully guided meditation then a foot massage and your first series of transcendent juices. Next you'll have the best two hours of Thai massage.
The rest of the day is relaxation in the best coastal location in Thailand I have ever found. I've been traveling in Thailand annually since 1995 and there are really few places like Khanom. The beaches are gorgeous, without people, the people are generous, the food is mighty and it is just really how life should be. From Nirvana, with its beautiful views of the sea, is a short walk to the beach. There are a number of local places for food and provisions nearby. If you wish to go anywhere nearby, the local markets, other beaches, the caves, or to see the magnificent pink dolphins, Carlo and Natty will provide you a ride as if you are a family.
At the end of two weeks we were transformed. Completely. Mind, body and soul. I've lived and holidayed globally for more than 25 years and I have never found a more wonderful and life giving place on this earth.
PS: If I may continue with the superlatives, if you choose a detox plan, the juices are incredible and you are never really hungry. But if you want to taste some of the best Thai cooking in your life, please let Natty and her staff feed you.
