  • Description


    Hello Workaway’ers!

    We are located in beautiful Koh Phangan Thailand. We are a family run hostel/beach club recently re-branded into a fitness club. Our doors just opened for business New Years 2020 and we are recruiting for some awesome individuals to help bring this place to life.

    We partnered up with a Beach Club to bring this new gym concept to life. Most of our equipment is made out of wood and recycled material all sourced from Koh Phangan but with a dash of modern traditional gym equipment that we obviously had to order from the main land.

    Oh and the best part, it’s a complete beach front gym. And if the beach front wasn’t good enough, it’s also a sunset hotspot each and every evening.

    But these views and beautiful location couldn’t be achieved without the help of our partner with their amazing property that can host 100+ guests from private bungalows to large and small dorms. There is also a restaurant and bar on site just a sea shell throw away from the gym.

    Currently we employ around 10 local staff to work the kitchen, bar and property. However, our fitness staff are all foreign workers bringing that extra power and creativity to the team.

  • Accommodation


    Our staff will be staying in either one of our lovely big 20 bed dorms with guests or if preferred in one of our smaller 6 bed staff rooms.

    Our dorms are very elegantly decorated and honestly more comfortable than the bunk beds in smaller dorm staff rooms. However if privacy is more a concern then the bunk beds are not a bad option.
