Tree Roots Retreat is a peaceful tranquil sanctuary set back from the golden beaches of Mae Rum Peung. The retreat offers Mindfulness-In-Action, Modern Martial Arts, Yoga and Surfing experiences. It also boasts one of the largest private book collections in Thailand so sitting around the pool with a book and listening to the sounds of the jungle is also an option.

Tree Roots was an amazing reset for both the mind and body.

I have to admit that I was initially a little apprehensive as it was located on the outskirts of Rayong with very little in the way of attractions but this turned out to be a good thing as I could focus on the people there and the training. It also has two lovely friendly dogs that love pats and company.

Every morning, there's training and Tree Roots attracts the most interesting and friendly people from former law enforcement to miniature painters. In the evenings there's also open mat. Tree Roots becomes like a self enclosed community.

The rooms were spacious and comfortable and there is a small pool to dip in. Internet connection was good (unless there's a storm and it'll need to be reset). It also has a vast private library which was a nice place to catch up on a bit of reading or do some work. There's also a well equipped gym to do weights.

Breakfast is provided every morning with coffee and while simple it had variety and was healthy and refreshing. Laundry is self service though the staff will sometimes help you dry them in the sun.

The beach is an 8 minute walk away and also near a 7-11 where you can pick up amenities or cash. They have an affiliated restaurant that does Thai food and you can eat on the beach.

If you want to go around, you can either rent a moped or book a Grab bike (car is hard to get) to Rayong city proper which is about half an hour away.

Would recommend this to anybody who wants to get away from it all and get some martial arts training in while still having creature comforts! Would definitely recommend getting some privates in especially if Rodney is at the retreat!

After initially 8 days, plus returning for 2 more days, my overall experience with Tree Roots is a positive one!

I'd like to emphasize that this is not a "full service" hotel, rather an oasis of tranquility and peace where it's easy to lower the shoulders, be oneself and feel at home.

Help yourself to a "self service" breakfast whenever awake and hungry. Enjoy the tranquility of the green garden, find an interesting book to read in the library, take self defense /martial arts lessons with Aaron, or do your own workouts in the gym area.

Chat with other guests, maybe share a pizza in the evening, - or simply retreat from all "to dos"and revitalise in your own company.

Sharing my impressions in some collages.

Had a lovely memorable few days at this charming hidden gem. Was a perfect getaway from the bustle of city life.  A retreat where I could rest & recharge the mind, body & soul. Each night slept deeply in the stylish comfortable ensuite room which was paired with a tranquil view of mother nature. Woke up to a home cooked yummy breakfast with fully stocked self service kitchen. Great amenities, fully equipped gym. Paired my morning Wim Hof breathe work with a an ice bath (which was prepared on request). Sending my true gratitude to Aaron & his team for creating a home from home experience.

Tree Roots epitomizes the difference between a resort and a retreat, the peaceful ambience is almost overwhelming. The rooms are gorgeous, great facilities and both owner and staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The gym and sporting facilities are world class, and the resort is extrtemely pet friendly; highly recommended.

This place does something good to you. Its a beautiful place for reflecting and relaxing and/or doing a lot of physical exercise. Going for long walks and going to the beach.

Aaron has done amazing art pieces from driftwood to be enjoyed all over the place together with a lot of other art like paintings and tresaure pieces.

Aaron is the perfect host and will make sure you are looked after. Will always come back to this place.

We came here after bustling, frantic Colombo and stayed longer than intended as it was so peaceful. It is what it says on the tin: a retreat; if you want a lively party place do not check in! Although there is plenty of life at the bottom of the lane with myriad eating places along the beach so you can have the best of both worlds. We did not partake of the many physical activities on offer by Aaron as we were happy to relax and explore the area: Rayong Town and the aquarium to name but two. The bungalows, gardens and pool are very well kept - the fan and a/c are best we’ve experienced on our travels ... so needed! Great beds and pillows for good nights sleep before ample breakfast! Congrats on a great retreat Aaron!

I was working for 2 weeks in Bangkok and needed to have a break from the megacity for a weekend. The Tree Roots Retreat was the perfect solution. Very quiet location, great and super clean bungalows and super nice staff.

Not a normal style retreat but a retreat with a difference. Emphasis on movement meditation fitness and relaxation. The pace is as slow or as fast as you like. Aaron the owner and instructor ably supported by Khun Bim and Crispin offer experience mixed with knowledge and an abundance of fun with everyday being different. From stretching to rolling, from art classes to hill walking, this was a perfect get away from it break

Small and tranquil resort located within walking distance to the nearby beach. Owner is very accomodating. A great place to relax by yourself, with your loved one or with your team. Great facilities for boxing, yoga and general fitness.

We had a very enjoyable time in Aaron and Bim's Resort.
Beautiful, spacious rooms (very high ceilings) surround a garden.
If you like to read you have plenty of books in your room as well in Aaron's library.

Next door there's an extensive boxing gym.
This is the place where Aaron teaches his Crazy Monkey style.
Make sure you take some lessons.

Also on offer are surfing or paddle boarding when the waves are too small.
In our case it was paddle boarding.

Every morning you can have a nice breakfast with fresh fruit.

The resort is a nice 10 minute walk to the beach.
If you get to the main road, you'll see that the first part of the beach is occupied by various restaurants.
Once you pass them you get to the beachy part of the beach.

To be honest it's not the greatest beach in the world. It could use some more cleaning.
Once you're in the water it's all fine though. And you're probably the only one in the ocean

The best part of the beach are the aforementioned restaurants.
Very fresh and affordable seafood made to order, after which you can take a nap in your deckchair.

Another good thing about the location is that it's not very touristy.

All in all the Tree Roots Retreat is perfect if you look for a relaxing, yet active holiday in an environment which is not run over by tourists
