Friends – it’s that time of the year when we slow down after a busy summer and wonder what’s going on our island. We are happy to tell you about a series of events designed to connect people who share a vision for a clean and green world, starting at home, on Samui.
Samui Mala has held an annual event on Samui to mark the International Day of Peace on Samui since 2007. We’ve embraced yoga, environmental education for children and adults, we’ve fund raised for worthy causes on and off the island. We’ve danced, we’ve held art exhibitions, we’ve drummed and laughed. We’ve painted temple walls and started a green market. We’ve connected people in our community. And we keep doing it….

Join Samui Mala?
No fees, no fuss. Samui Mala is a small ad hoc group of local residents on Samui island who support a vision for a clean and green world, starting at home, on Samui. See more about our philosophy
Host an event?
We’ve been generously hosted by many venues notably Tamarind Springs, Kamalaya, Samahita Retreat, June’s Art Cafe, International School of Samui, Bandara Resort and Spa, Vikasa, Yogarden and others.
Our festivals have all been a conscious effort to ‘live the mala’ by being kind to each other, and to our planet. We ask that organizers minimize trash, the use of plastic and avoid unnecessary consumption. Let’s be local, sustainable wherever possible.
