An escape for the martial arts lover

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 7 Aug 2022
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!

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.

Room tip: Every room is the same with stylish bathroom and room design. Very good natural light and clean.

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.

Room tip: Great vibes

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.

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.

Room tip: All rooms are facing the pool area.

Recently had the pleasure of staying here. Aaron is a great host and offers a range of pursuits from yoga, surfing, martial arts and loads more aimed at all proficiency levels. Some great books in his personal library to look through. Nice to be in some open space with fresh air and no noise pollution.

Room tip: All similar arranged around the pool for easy access.
