Feeling like an overstuffed turkey doesn't have to be the only reason why a detox holiday is next on the agenda. It's (almost) 2020, and a healthier lifestyle sounds like a magnificent way to start the year. If that sounds right up your alley, a wellness break at Samujana in Koh Samui could be your push-start button.

The setting itself is a wonder. All of Samujana's villas are located amidst a beautifully hilly horizon, with private beach access and incredible views of Koh Samui — in itself enough to make anyone feel instantly better. Once you've feasted on the vistas, you'll be ready to embark on a personal journey to tip-top health, thanks to a thoughtful team who have worked alongside experts in their field to put together a package that will include yoga, spa treatments, and delectably healthy fare.

Each of Samujana's perfectly curated 24 villas is designed to offer peace of mind to both the guests' body and brain. There's yoga mats in the living room, nutritious snacks in the minibar, meditation apps on the in-room mobile, and a unique detox menu, which can be prepared in your luxurious villa by a private chef. Paired with expansive terraces, idyllic infinity swimming pools, and an alluring, spacious living area, it's not hard to wake up refreshed and ready for a few rounds of sun salutations.

For those who prefer a more structured approach, the destination detox package includes one private yoga and one guided meditation session for two. Personal training sessions are also offered in all villas, with some spaces including a fully-equipped gym replete with boxing bags and techno gym products. Guests are also encouraged to try the much-buzzed-about Thai kickboxing, or Muay Thai, if they fancy.

Overachievers can also opt for a juice cleanse with island experts Juice Queen, which involves an abundance of organic, cold-pressed, and medicinal juice to keep your metabolism going, organs supported, and brain active. While we personally don't know if we can resist food at Samujana, you're probably not going to get more motivated than you are here. Topping it all off is a villa manager at your beck and call — from spa and fitness services, or tailored treatments, no request is too small for your clever aide. 2020 is off to a squeaky clean start.

The destination detox package is for two people. and includes a yoga session with The Yogarden, a 60-minute massage, a healthy BBQ dinner with a private chef, a hike with a private guide on the island of Samui, and a meditation session. For more information, visit Samujana.
