Below you will find some of our most frequently asked questions.
And please ignore our sarcastic humor to some of your questions, BUT if it offends
you, this is definitely NOT the retreat for you princess.
1. Do I need any experience in Muay Thai?
No, we are open to and and ALL levels.
2. Do I need to "be in shape"?
No. Trust us you will GET in shape, you do not need to be in shape.
3. Is "everything" included?
Included: Your 7 nights accommodation at Fairtex Hotel + all Fairtex regular muay thai classes, breakfasts, Jungle Gym day pass, Muscle Factory group workout, 1 day sauna pass, 1 day Centara water park entrance fee, transport for daily FITE planned group outings, and your 1 ticket to our evening at Max Muay Thai Fight. We also cover 1 Thai massage (happy endings are at your own cost). Joking...not joking
What is not included:
Flights, Airport to Hotel Transfer (instructions for bus, Grab (Uber) and taxi will be sent to you). Any other meals besides breakfast at Fairtex. Any additional private Muay Thai coaching from either a Fairtex Coach or coach Andrea.
6. What are the entry requirements for travellers to Thailand?
According to the Royal Thai Embassy, the proof of vaccination is no longer required. Travelers from China and India will require a negative RT-PCR test before departure and should have health insurance covering at least 10K USD for COVID-19 that covers the duration of your stay in Thailand + 7 additional days. Visas for travelers from Canada, USA, England, and Australia are NOT required.
7. What should I wear / pack?
Thailand is HOT AF! The daily average temperature is 28-35 degrees. So pack shorts, t-shirts, tank tops, 2 pairs of training shoes (they get sweaty), and flip flops. Keep in mind all this can be bought in Thailand as well for all less than $10 per item.
8. Do I need my own gloves / wraps?
Yes. Bring those. But Fairtex is the worlds #1 brand and so of course they sell all these and much more in their two, on-sight pro shops, and they make a great souvenir too.
4. Can I stay at Fairtex or Thailand longer?
Of course! We suggest you DO stay in Thailand for as long as you can. Our retreat is basically 6.5 days so feel free to come before or stay after as long as you like. But that cost, and planning is all yours. However Ror can give you some great suggestions about where else to visit in Thailand.
5. Do they offer vegan meals?
Dude... It's Thailand, they don't care about this shit. But yes, there are lots of salad, rice and vegetable options, but we can't guarantee anything.
Eat meat. Live happier.
9. What in Check In / Check out?
You may check in at Fairtex on the Monday of the retreat at 2pm. If you arrive earlier you may check your luggage, and they will grant to access to the pools, gym, bags, etc., anytime after 10am. Earlier than that? They have a great lobby to nap in.
Check out is at Noon on the next Monday. If you have a later flight booked, the front desk can hold onto your luggage until 11pm same day.
10. Are there other activities besides training?
Yes, but we are there to train! Muay Thai. CrossFit, Power Building are all on the agenda. BUT we also have some markets, an island trip, local fight, sauna / cold dip, dinners out, roof top pool bars, and VERY late night party nights planned. We hope you like hitting Bags, Beers and Bikinis, because ALL that will be experienced!
