Things to Consider When Choosing a Yoga Retreat

So you’ve decided to embark on a yoga retreat in Cambodia. Great decision! After a few days of nurturing your body and mind, you are sure to feel revitalised and ready to take on the world.

To help you pick the best retreat for you, here are a few important things you should consider before you reserve your space.

Perhaps the most important consideration when choosing a yoga retreat is location. As Cambodia is not a yoga hotspot, there are limited places to embark on a retreat, however, of the available locations, they are all very different. 

Siem Reap is a great option for those wanting to experience Cambodian culture. Basing yourself in the city means world-class temples and religious sights are just a stone’s throw away. You’re also close to a range of restaurants and amazing nightlife. If you’re travelling to Cambodia, especially for a yoga retreat, it is one of the easiest places to access by plane. If your retreat is part of an extended trip, Siem Reap is also a good jumping-off point for many other parts of the country. 

If postcard-perfect beaches are more your idea of paradise, you’ll find them in Cambodia. Staying on an island with a limited WiFi connection allows you to really concentrate on your practice and hone in on self-reflection, while still being able to soak up the sun in your downtime. 

If you’d prefer a less touristy base with easy access to rural Cambodia to focus your mind, Kampot is an ideal spot. The beach town of Kep is just half an hour from the city and you’ll find plenty of restaurants and bars in the centre. There is a large expat scene in Kampot so if you’re craving a taste of home, you’ll find it easily here.

No matter whether you are a complete newbie or an experienced yogi, you’ll find a retreat in Cambodia that offers what you need. All the retreats on this list cater to all levels, meaning that you’ll be welcomed no matter your experience or fitness level. Retreats tailor classes to the ability of the participants and alternative asanas are readily offered for those with injuries. 


Yoga retreats vary in cost hugely but in general, for a week, you’ll be looking at somewhere from $270USD upwards. If a luxury retreat is what you’re after, you could be looking at anywhere up to $1,500USD per person, especially if the schedule includes luxury accommodation, spa treatments and healing sessions. 

Most retreats have the option of shared accommodation, which is a great way to keep costs down. Private options are also available and range from a basic single room with a shared bathroom right up to a large private AC bungalow with swimming pool access. 


Most yoga schools will offer a choice of accommodation and at least one yoga class a day as part of a retreat program. Food is usually included in the cost of the package and will often be vegetarian. Spa treatments such as massages and healing therapies such as Reiki may be included in more expensive packages or can usually be added on for an additional fee. 

Make sure you know exactly what is included in your retreat. If you add on lots of optional extras or your accommodation is exclusive of the package, it could push the price of your retreat right up!

Most yoga retreats usually have a minimum stay requirement of two or three days. The average length of a retreat is around six days to a week, however, some retreats offer longer stays too. Longer retreats tend to offer the best value for money.

Start Dates:

Many yoga schools only run retreats on certain dates. This means the duration and start/finish dates are set in advance. Some yoga schools allow you to choose your own start and finish dates, essentially offering rolling retreats. These are ideal for those who think they might like to extend their stay at a yoga retreat or are doing a retreat as part of an extended trip.
