What to Expect from your Detox
(Updated for the new Maenam Resort April 2019)
The New Leaf detox programme is very structured. However, there is still enough time to do personal activities or explore the island of Koh Samui. If you stick to our easy programme, you will get great results, fast. We have proven time and time again here at New Leaf. You will get out of it what you put in, and the results might amaze you.
You don’t have to take part in any of the activities, but we do recommend trying all of them out at least once. You never know, you might stumble upon a newfound passion or hobby. Our qualified and certified instructor or trainer guide all group activities at New Leaf.
6:30 AM –Wake Up (Knock, Knock, Good Morning)
Maenam on the north coast of Samui is so beautiful as the sun rises. It is a great way to start the day. We offer a different guided morning walk each day that just about anyone can do. If you have mobility restrictions, we suggest a short beach walk or stick with aqua sports like an aqua spin bike, aerobics or swim training.
6:45 AM – Meeting in the Dining Area Overlooking the Pool and Beach
You’ll be given some morning supplements, meet some of the other guests and head out on the walk. Some days it’s a refreshing 4 km walk on the beach while other days it’s a challenging 12 km jungle loop or a hike up a hill. Don’t worry, you’ll know ahead of time which morning walk it will be. If it’s not for you, you can always go for a stroll on the beach. Our fitness instructor will be with you to ensure you’re not only safe but also provide you with encouragement and motivation. Don’t forget to bring your ‘complimentary’ stainless drink bottle you are given at your check-in briefing.
8:30 AM – Breakfast is Served
Our juices are freshly prepared and organic, ensuring you get the best quality possible. Many of the ingredients are from our organic farm. The juice changes every day; not only will you not get tired of the same taste, but you’ll also get all the vitamins and minerals your body needs to carry out the detox program. Thailand is home to some of the most delicious tropical fruits and vegetables and rests assured, and you’ll get to try most of them while with us!
8:30 – 9:30 AM – Plan Your Day
During this one hour, you can check your measurements and blood pressure. Monitor your weight loss with our Program Director. We recommend you weigh in once a week or at the end of your stay. You can schedule your health and wellness private consultation, a colonic or intravenous vitamin and anti-aging infusion.
NOTE: Individual daily schedule for colema and massage are on the whiteboard in the Dining Area.
Between breakfast and aqua sport and water aerobics, you will have time to try the parasite zapper. You can read about the benefits of the zapper here. It’s also an excellent opportunity to chat with other guests and even make long-lasting friendships.
9:45 – 10:30 AM – Aqua Sports
It’s time to get ready for water aerobics or aqua spin bike. For the next 45 minutes, our fitness instructor will work every muscle of your body. You’ll not only lose weight but also start to build strength that you may have thought you never had. Aqua sports are low resistance, and great for rehabilitation of any injuries, you might be carrying. We have a 25 x 8.5-meter saltwater lap pool with the shallow area (1.0 meter deep) of 80 square meters of the pool floor for aqua sports. It’s deep enough to tumble turn if you are swim training and shallow enough to stand and exercise. You can read about the ‘Sun All Day, Designed That Way’ here.
10.30 AM – Herbal Steam Room
The amazing herbal steam room, separate women and men, are perfect after the pool exercise and before lunch.
11:30 – Lunch Served
You’ll enjoy a fulfilling smoothie packed with all the energy you need to keep you on your feet and going strong. You’ll also be given a few different supplements to get your body into tip-top shape.
12 Noon – Noon Group Activity
A typical day at noon you’ll be encouraged to join in the midday activity. Taste the broth of Green Curry in the Thai Cooking Class or build stamina in the Thai Boxing session. Educate yourself on parasites in Parasites 101 or learn how to break the detox properly in our Nutritional Talk. There’s more to Koh Samui than just our detox resort, and you’ll have the chance to explore the most beautiful, awe-inspiring sights on the Island Tour. All activities are included in your detox program, and although optional, will help you to make the most of your experience.
12-4 PM – Massage and Colema
During the afternoon, all guests will partake in a self-administered colema or a scheduled colonic. Colonics need to be booked and planned and have a small fee. Now, we won’t go too much into this here, but this is one of the best ways to cleanse the colon, eliminate parasites (if you have any) and repopulate your gut with good bacteria. The Staff at New Leaf Detox Resort will carefully guide you through the colema process, so you know exactly how to do it.
Apart from the colema, you’ll get to be pampered in a daily Thai or oil massage. This will help you to realign the body, clear out stubborn toxins and promote healthy, glowing skin.
When you’re not enjoying the massage or cleansing the colon, you are free to do as you wish. Whether you want to read a book on your veranda, mingle with other guests or go out for a stroll into the beautiful village of Maenam 2 minutes away. You will have the afternoon to take care of your personal needs.
2.00 PM – Green Juice Break
Don’t forget to stop by the dining area every day for your healthy green juice break before you go to your next activity. Most of the ingredients grown at New Leaf in our herb and hydroponic gardens.
4.00 PM – Yoga
Each day at four, you can centre your mind while building strength and flexibility in the daily yoga sessions. Whether you’ve never done yoga before or think you’re just “not flexible enough” these classes will show you that anyone can do, and enjoy, yoga. If you’re not into yoga, you can always take a swim in the pool or relax. Yoga is a great way to cleanse toxins from your bodies’ pores and prepare for a good night’s rest.
5.00 PM Meditation
Five days a week there is a Meditation session following Yoga. You can opt to do this if you want to. The benefits of learning meditation and regular practice are immense on mental and physical health. Try it if you haven’t already.
5.00 PM – Far-Infrared Sauna
Each Spa room has an amazing far-infrared sauna which holds 12 guests at a time. The benefits of this type of sauna are incredible. Reduced stress and muscle pain, increases metabolic rate to assist in fat burning, detoxifies the body, improves the appearance of cellulite, increases the immune system and improves the skin. Try and get along to one of these daily sessions and see the benefits for yourself.
6:30 PM – Dinner Soup
New Leaf serves freshly made in house tasty, healthy, hearty soup to give your body plenty of fuel for the next day. By the time dinner is over, many guests retire to their rooms with a herbal tea and a movie. It’s a perfect way to end the busy day and prepare for another active day of your extensive detox programme at New Leaf.
That’s Not All
There’s plenty of activities you can add onto your day from Personal Training and Boxing Training, Personal Yoga Sessions and Swimming Lessons. Teeth Whitening and even a private Cooking Class.
At New Leaf, you can pick and choose to relax or stay as active as possible. It’s up to you.
