The bungalows are like ‘living in a basket’. Thatch roof, hand-woven bamboo walls and wooden floors are the way of life at the lake. All bungalows have small decks; all have front deck and some front and rear. All of them offer awesome cliff and lake views and a place for a nice hammock nap or viewing wildlife. Each bungalow is sparsely furnished— wooden bed frame, mattress, bedding, pillows, and mosquito netting and towel. All structures: the bungalows, restaurant, hang out space, pop up shop - are floating on the lake, connected by bridged walkways. Half of the bungalows are installed with shower and bathroom, although those without it offer a back deck more breezy. It is important to remember that the electricity offered is very limited; a generator provides it for a few hours each evening enabling us to recharge our devices. There is no cellphone signal, therefore you won’t be able to make calls, use wi-fi or 3G, except in an extreme urgent case scenario. What a bless!

CANCELATION POLICY ADN REFUND
The full deposit should be transferred within 2 months prior the retreat begins. Since we’ve experienced in the past last minute cancelations we kindly inform since now:
that full reimburses are only acceptable if you decide to cancel within 2 months prior the retreat begins
In case you decide to not come after this date only 50% will be returned, unless it is an extreme situation of family loss or similar instances that we will evaluate. Therefore, we suggest you to find another friend to take up your place
Since the numbers are counted and we have to pay upfront, it’s quite challenge to manage it in a short time notice. We really hope you understand it.
There are 55 countries allowed to enter Thailand without Visa. You probably have to do what is called “visa on arrival”, which take only few minutes at the airport in Thailand. For Brazilians is necessary to present the yellow vaccination card at the arrival visa process.
Jungle Yoga “CONVENIENTLY LOCATED IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE, is a floating yoga center situated in the heart of one of the oldest jungles in earth. The hidden village is nestled in Klong Long Wildlife Sanctuary, which is part of Khao Sok National Park. Praiwan Raft House or Jungle Yoga is an incredible paradise filled with abundant wildlife, thick tropical jungle and stunning limestone formations. A place in the heart of nature where you can contemplate life and rediscover those forgotten rhythms of long days, easy nights and the salve of the peace.
