"The retreat changed my life forever..."

The first retreat was one of the most amazing life-changing experiences of my life. There is nothing like feasting on the highest quality fruits and raw food in a beautiful environment surrounded by like-minded people. I've been on three of Simon & Tina's retreats now and at every single one of them, I had the best time of my life. I've also been on other retreats and none come close to fitshortie's retreats.

"This is not your average retreat, it is so much more"
Read More
I took part in Tina and Simon's retreat in 2019, to this day I keep going back to the memories, information and inspiration that that week gave me. When I consider the life I want to create, the joy tropical fruits give me, or the excitement I still feel when I consider the experiences their retreat provided me...it's invaluable. I feel grateful and honoured this is an adventure I committed to. I hope to join them again. I recommend this retreat to anyone looking to enjoy time spent in great energy, eating and learning about amazing fruits, enjoying beautiful nature spots you would be hard by finding on your own and truly experiencing a very unique and magical experience. This is not your average retreat, it is so much more and if you're reading my words I'm sure there is a part of your soul calling you to go, very much aligned with what Tina and Simon have lovingly created. Enjoy!

"Going on an adventure with them is something special"
Read More
Tina & Simon hosted me several times for fruit retreats in Asia. I visited more than 30 countries in my life but going on an adventure with them is always something special for me. We first met in 2018 at the Bali retreat and they changed my life. Later on, we did another adventure in Malaysia. I can still remember when I had the most relaxing massage in Bali's jungle, followed by the best jackfruit ever😋 They take great care of everyone and bring like-minded people into the group. I also made new friends through their adventures. Tina & Simon create exciting experiences and share their positive vibe with everyone. Their passion to bring the best fruits is simply amazing. I'm looking forward to our next adventure and can only recommend the jungle adventure to every fruit lover ✨🥭

"I felt so light and had so much energy!"
Read More
I was plant-based for a few years, but eating the tropical and rare fruits was a whole different level. I felt so light and had so much energy! I feel that even in that one week I healed some ailments. At home, I was close to being homebound but on this retreat, I was hiking and able to do so much more!!!! The conversation as a group and individually was amazing as well. At home I’m not around many plant-based friends and having everyone around me on the same page was sooo neat. Everyone pitched in to help when needed. The home we stayed in was so fancy and nice! The smells, sights, and sounds of nature were perfect. The adventures all worked seamlessly and everyone had a great time. The retreat with Simon and Tina was life-changing for me. I personally would recommend this adventure to everyone! (As long as I have my spot first 😉)

STILL HAVE QUESTIONS?
WE'VE GOT YOU COVERED!

👉 What are the requirements to enter Thailand right now and what about visas? 

There are NO special entry requirements regarding covid or vaccination to enter Thailand right now. Everyone is welcome!

Passport holders of the 64 countries below will receive a 45-day free visa exemption stamp in their passports. This means you just fly into Thailand and at the first customs at the airport you give your passport, they stamp it for free, and that’s it, you can stay for up to 45 days in Thailand for tourism purposes. 

Nationalities that are not on this list have to apply for a visa-on-arrival before traveling. This can be easily done online or at the Thai embassy in your country.

👉 How to get to the island of Koh Phangan in Thailand? 

There are 2 good options to get to the island of Koh Phangan. 

  1. Fly into Koh Samui, which is the neighboring island. Then on Koh Samui take the 45-minute Seatran ferry from the Bangrak pier which is a 5-minute drive from the airport. There’s 2 Seatran ferries each day. Alternatively you can take any of the other ferries that go between Koh Samui and Koh Phangan, they all take about 45 minutes. You can find all ferries here: www.phanganferries.com. This is by far the easiest and fastest way to get to the island.
  2. Fly to Bangkok and take a short domestic flight to Surat Thani which is the town on the mainland closest to the island. From the airport you can take either the bus or a private taxi to the Donsak pier. Most ferry tickets bought online come with this bus trip included. We suggest you take the Lomprayah ferry but you could also take the Seatran or Raja ferry. The Lomprayah ferry is fastest and most modern. Book your tickets in advance on www.lomprayah.com or 12go.asia . Search for routes between Surat Thani Airport and Koh Phangan.

👉 Do I need to bring extra cash to the retreat?

No. The Thai Raw Food Retreat is all-inclusive. Everything – lodging, transport, food, drinks & activities – is included in the price of the retreat from start to finish. Your flights to/from Thailand, as well as transportation to/from Koh Phangan before and after the retreat, are not included.

👉 Where and when does the retreat start & end?

The retreat starts and ends in Thongsala on Koh Phangan. After securing your spot at the retreat you will receive an email with the exact location of our meeting point (in Thongsala). The retreat will start in the morning on the first day of the retreat and it will end in the evening on the last day of the retreat.

👉 Are children allowed on the retreat?

This is an adults-only retreat due to the nature of the activities. We can only accept children above 15 years old and they need to pay full price and have to be accompanied by at least 1 adult family member.

👉 Do I have to be very fit to take part in the activities of the retreat?

No matter your fitness level you will enjoy the retreat tremendously. There will be some activities like nature hikes of around 2-3 hrs at a leisurely pace, but if that’s not your cup of tea, you can always stay behind and enjoy the luxury of the retreat villa. This retreat will be at a more relaxed pace comparing to our previous retreats as we will have plenty of mind, body and wellness activities on the schedule.

👉 Changes to your booking and refunds

We allow name changes in case you can not make it to the retreat. If you have booked your spot and decide you can not attend the retreat, we will allow you to transfer your spot to another person which you will need to find on your own. We allow name changes up to 1 month before the retreat start date. Once you have booked your spot for a certain week of the retreat, you can not change the dates of your retreat week even if we are hosting several weeks of retreats close to each other. The retreat is non-refundable. This is because we have already booked the retreat villa, drivers, and prepaid many activities. If you have opted for a payment plan but cannot attend the retreat, the pending payments will still be charged. No credit will be given towards future retreats except in the unlikely scenario that the Thai government changes entry requirements due to covid, and you don’t have a vaccination certificate, then you will be able to use your payment as credit towards any of our retreats in the next two years.

👉 Are we going to eat only fruits during the retreat?

You will be able to enjoy unlimited, seasonal, tropical fruits (including durian), coconut water and freshly made juices. In the evenings we will also enjoy a delicious salad buffet and decadent, savory, raw vegan meals. Like always, we believe in serving you premium-quality fruit and raw foods in absolute abundance!

Yes Simon and Tina, count me in. I’m down for the adventure of a lifetime! I want to experience a week of absolute abundance of tropical fruits, exquisite raw foods, and thrilling adventures in breath-taking scenery with the most amazing people. Koh Phangan, here I come!

"I must say that all of our expectations were met on every level!"
Read More
Prior to going on this retreat with my girlfriend, I had been living a raw vegan fruit-based lifestyle for some years and one of the fruits I would eat constantly is durian the “king of fruits” it is my favorite hands down. One day I randomly discovered Simon and Tina on Youtube, I remember thinking when I saw one of their first videos “wow these peeps know what's up when it comes to high-grade tropical fruit and way of living with nature” but not only that, they seemed like genuinely cool people that I could see myself hanging out with and they love Durian! So for a year or two, I would watch their videos and just be in awe of all the traveling and fruit that they would showcase. I told my girlfriend I need to meet these two someday. Not too much longer after that, they announce that they were having retreats, I remember at the moment turning to my girlfriend and saying yooo this is our chance to finally eat some epic tropical fruits, link up with Simon and Tina, and vibe! So with no hesitation, we booked it! I must say that all of our expectations were met on every level. Not only were the people there super cool and real but Simon and Tina were exceptional hosts and some of the most down-to-earth people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting in my life, they are true Gems. We love them and their lil one Leo so much and consider them some of our closest friends to this day. The reason I go into much detail on this review is that if you are reading this and considering going on one of their retreats think no further and just do it, You won't regret it! The fruit is of the highest quality hand-selected by the master Simon on the daily. I mean when you actually try this local fruit and raw foods you’ll know when I say what more could you want! Also, the adventures they have planned for you are so majestic, I’m talking waterfalls and epic hikes galore! They really go out of their way to ensure you are always doing something exciting! I obviously had an amazing time as you can tell haha and I definitely will be going on another retreat as soon as the time aligns!

"One of the highlights of the day was always the dinner talks"
Read More
I loved the retreat with Tina & Simon💜 We went on amazing adventures, to beautiful remote natural spots. Not to mention the group and the people I got to know there. One of the highlights of the day was always the dinner talks where we could get to know each other better. I heard so many inspiring life stories. I got the first motivation to leave my 9 to 5 life there which I did 2 years after the retreat and moved myself to the tropics too. I'm waiting for the next adventure and I will definitely join again! Thank you for the experience again 🤗🥰

"It was the best decision I ever made!"
Read More
I started following Simon on YouTube a long time ago before they decided to launch the Retreats. For months my dream goal was to go to Asia in order to live the fruity lifestyle as I was seeing other people living. As I never backpacked alone in the past I had no idea where to start. The moment I realized Tina & Simon were going to host a retreat I just had to book it!! They even told me I was their first booking. And it was the best decision I ever made! With them, I learned how to pick the best ripe fruit. It's so different from when you watch a video about it. It was an intensive "course" on fruit but it wasn't only that. We also followed waterfalls and we went to "secret" spots where you were the only travelers between locals. The little hidden gems of Bali. I felt like such a jungle girl that I got a huge boost in my confidence. My only regret was that I ate all the fruits instead of focusing only on Durian. I should have done a full day on Durian only just for the fun of it. But instead, I feasted on all the fruit they got us like a little princess. That retreat opened up my eyes. After it, I solo backpacked 8 months in Asia. It made me realize that this lifestyle is possible and it's so easy!!!

"The stuff dreams are made of!"

Tina and Simon's retreat was pure bliss from the get-go. It was a small group so we all gathered and had the warmest welcome, immediately after which we were taken to a lush market and were absolutely wowed by an amazing fruit picnic - seriously it was like uncle Scrooge swimming in his mountains of gold, only it was fruit of ALL different kinds that we have never seen or tasted before...And what followed was one week of absolute abundance during which they trained us to be the worst of durian snobs 😜🤣😂, or as it was in Simon's words: "We should have only the best!" The time we spent together felt longer in a nice way! Because every single day was packed full of visiting natural beauty sites and having adventures and heartfelt conversations. I didn't even miss my cats badly, and that says a lot because I am the worst and most attached cat mum ever 😜. I loved every minute of the retreat and can't wait for the next one to be announced. Can't recommend it enough, it is such an incredibly beautiful experience! The stuff dreams are made of!

I attended Simon & Tina's retreat three years ago. The fruit quality was just outstanding. We visited some fantastic waterfalls and nature spots. This retreat also made me appreciate tropical fruit on a much deeper level. I met great people and had a great time. I would definitely attend another one of Simon and Tina's retreats in the future and would highly recommend it!

"To anyone thinking about joining their next retreat... do it!'
Read More
I love to think Simon & Tina as my close friends, but it all started at one of their retreats four years ago. The fruits we ate there were amongst the best I’ve ever eaten. The whole retreat was one big adventure with fantastic activities in nature and long evenings of storytelling & connection. Right now I’m building my fruit forest in the tropics, but to anyone thinking about joining their next retreat I say do it, you won’t regret it, their retreats are amazing!

The retreat was absolutely magical. Some of the highest quality fruit I’ve ever had, epic adventures and amazing people. Tina and Simon taught all of us so much and brought us to some magical hidden spots within the island. I recommend everyone experience their retreats at least once in their life.

"A constant state of bliss and harmony!"

Oh it was such a marvellous bonding time with Mother Nature for all of us on the trip! Immersed in vibrant primordial jungle vibes and breathing pure, lusciously humid tropical air we were spoiled daily by the abundance of insanely delicious fruit with a great variety of flavours, colours and textures! And that kind of sheer indulgence inevitably led to a constant state of bliss and harmony! Tina and Simon are truly the master fruit hunters and always find the best treasures Nature has to offer, be it supple perfection of a wild durian or pristine beauty of a wild waterfall deep in the jungle... I love you guys!

My trip with Tina & Simon was the adventure of a lifetime and I cherish those memories today! I met beautiful, warm, interesting people from all over the world. We were taken to very off-the-beaten-track locations and bathed in stunning pristine waterfalls! The variety, quantity, and quality of the fruits we ate 3x a day were thrilling and nourishing. If you have a chance to travel with these two, jump on it, I would go again for sure!

That retreat was a beautiful experience...I tasted durians for the first time and it was love and hate emotion, choice of fruit was very vast ... And of course Tina and Simon, two very genuine human beings, friendly and available at any time... Daily excursions a bit tiresome for me, but in exchange of that was the beauty and diversity of that land, very vivid till today in my life... I would recommend that experience to anyone who likes to explore our globe...With much Love Maria 🍎🍎🍎

"Epic adventures and amazing people!"
Read More
In 2020, I went on the retreat. I wanted to explore pristine nature and eat epic fruits, like rambutan, which I did in copious amounts every day. Simon and Tina made sure coconuts were flowing, the fruit stash was always abundant, we were eating enough, and enjoying ourselves. I'm usually not one to enjoy group trips, because they make me feel like a tourist, but this trip was the opposite! Simon navigated the land like a native, scouting out the best waterfalls for our group to cool down for a dip. If you're into adventure and want to transform your health, these retreats are for you!

The retreat was one of the best experiences of my life! Tina and Simon are both extremely knowledgeable and down to earth and facilitate a very inclusive and welcoming introduction to one of the world's most exotic places. I have never tasted such amazing fruit before much of which was untouched by the Agricultural Revolution. The flavors range anywhere from bubblegum to alcoholic white-chocolate.

"Everyone was very welcoming and friendly."

It was my first time going on a retreat with people I never met. But I'm so glad I went! Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. There was endless fruits and fun activities everyday. Most of the activities were with a local guide, so we got to avoid busy tourist attractions. Simon would go out every morning to shop for fresh fruits. He got crates full of fresh fruits everyday! Wish I could join the retreats in the future!
