5-Night Chai Talay Estate Parent & Teen Retreat: Managing Anxiety in Teens


Chai Talay Estate is a luxury private retreat on the tropical shores of Koh Samui, Thailand. Whether looking to focus on your fitness, nutrition or mental and emotional health, Chai Talay Estate's programme is packed with activities and workshops to help you make sustainable lifestyle changes with more than 35 different activities and workshops.

This week-long retreat is Chai Talay Estate's first Parent & Teen Well-Being Retreat. Offered for parents and their teenage children between 13-18 years old, this retreat is targetted at helping teenagers cope with stress, manage anxiety, and build resilience to life's difficulties. Through examining health and unhealthy behaviours, this retreat will provide parents with the knowledge and awareness to support their child, and teens with the tools to better manage their own mental health and recognise triggers. 

With the support of an expert team of fitness, nutrition, and mindfulness practitioners, guests can expect to meet like-minded individuals while they kick-back in paradise and enjoy a comprehensive schedule of fitness and holistic activities, including Muay Thai, Pilates, yoga, meditation HIIT, circuit training, TRX, meditation and AquaFit. Whether you're a seasoned athlete or complete beginner, there is something for every taste and level—plus the opportunity to challenge yourself by trying new activities. 

Building confidence, self-esteem, and most importantly, a better level of communication and understanding, this retreat is the perfect start to the school holidays for parents and teens alike.

Chai Talay Estate is made up of three privately-owned villas: Baan Orachon, Baan Kilee, and Baan Puri. The three villas work together as one giant resort or individually and can be privately rented. Each villa has its own swimming pool, kitchen, dining space, lawn, and indoor social space.

The Estate has a total of 17 rooms which can sleep up to 40 people. All rooms are ensuite and luxuriously designed with excellent use of light and space.

Baan Orachon is the smallest villa with four rooms, and sleeps up to eight people. The rooms are flexible as either double or twin. Baan Kilee has six rooms ranging from twin to four-person, two-room suites, and can sleep up to 16. Baan Puri hosts five rooms, comfortably sleeping 10, with extra bed options available.

The Estate has been designed to function for whatever guests need: beams in the undercover walkways are strong enough to hold TRX belts and host a class of up to 20, while the lawns can be transformed from circuit boot camps to lantern-lit dining spaces.

Chai Talay Estate includes all meals, snacks and beverages in its retreat programme (excluding premium drinks like coconuts). Meals are served family style, with a wide selection of Thai dishes on the menu. All of the food is refined sugar-free, gluten-free, predominantly lactose-free, and dishes are clearly marked.
