Kick back and relax: Accommodation, Where to Stay for Muay Thai Training in Thailand

Updated: Apr 22, 2023

Muay Thai is a martial art that has been developed in Thailand for centuries. It is not only a sport, but also a way of life for many people in Thailand. Training Muay Thai in Thailand has become increasingly popular over the years, as more and more people are seeking an authentic experience in the birthplace of the sport. One of the key considerations when planning a Muay Thai holiday to Thailand is the type of accommodation that is available. In this article, we will explore the different types of accommodation that are available for those who are planning to train Muay Thai in Thailand.


The first type of accommodation that is available is the traditional Thai-style bungalow. These bungalows are typically made of wood and bamboo and are designed to be simple and basic. They often have a thatched roof and are surrounded by lush tropical gardens. These bungalows are ideal for those who are looking for an authentic Thai experience, as they are usually located in rural areas and away from the hustle and bustle of the city. They are also a great option for those who are on a budget, as they are typically very affordable. You will find bungalows in the south of Thailand near the beach resorts. Of course any accommodation on or near the beech wll not be cheap no matter how basic.

The second type of accommodation that is available is the hotel or resort. There are many hotels and resorts throughout Thailand that cater specifically to Muay Thai enthusiasts. These hotels and resorts offer a wide range of amenities, including swimming pools, fitness centers, and even Muay Thai training facilities. They are a great option for those who are looking for a more luxurious experience, as they often offer spa services and other high-end amenities. However, they can be quite expensive, so they may not be the best option for those who are on a tight budget. A good option is to look at business hotels, these are similar to "Travel lodge" in the uk and are smart and clean hotel accommodation but at reasonable prices.

The third type of accommodation that is available is the Muay Thai training camp. These training camps are specifically designed for those who are looking to train in Muay Thai. They typically offer a wide range of training programs, including beginner classes, intermediate classes, and advanced classes. They also often have on-site accommodation, so you can train and live in the same place. These training camps are a great option for those who are serious about training in Muay Thai, as they offer a highly structured and focused training environment. The obvious advantage is location, you will be next to the gym however sometimes the prices charged are disproportionate for the type of accommodation compared to a similar room in the same locality.

The fourth type of accommodation that is available is the homestay. Homestays are a great option for those who are looking for an authentic Thai experience. With a homestay, you will live with a local family, which will allow you to experience Thai culture firsthand. Homestays are also a great option for those who are on a tight budget, as they are typically very affordable. However, it is important to note that homestays may not offer the same level of comfort and convenience as a hotel or resort.


Finally a great option is to rent a small apartment or condo. if you will be staying for a month or longer this will be a good way to arrange accommodation at a bargain price and in a comfortable apartment with laundry, wifi and possibly a gym and a pool in the complex.


A long term Apartment or condo let is a good option if you are staying over a month.


There are many different types of accommodation that are available for those who are planning to train Muay Thai in Thailand. Whether you are looking for a traditional Thai-style bungalow, a luxurious hotel or resort, a focused training camp, or an authentic homestay, there is an option that will meet your needs and budget. When planning your Muay Thai holiday to Thailand, be sure to carefully consider your accommodation options so that you can have the best possible experience. With the right accommodation, you can truly immerse yourself in Thai culture and enjoy all that this amazing country has to offer.


Post Script: We don't advise Hostel Accommodation for Muay Thai students. Your hard training routine will call for sole use of a bathroom and your kit will need airing out to avoid bad smells.
