The Secret Retreats Collection is Perfect for Your Post-COVID travel.

We are all looking forward to welcoming you back to our beautiful Asian homes!

The COVID-19 pandemic is causing change in all our daily lives, including how we travel. With new social protocols required of us all, and the need for infection risk to be seriously managed, post-covid travel requires a level of sincerity and care that one would see in a family home, and this is where a stay in a Secret Retreats property provides you with the peace of mind you require. We are your homes from home in Asia.

With uncertainty and fear hanging over travelling, no one knows how quickly tourism and business travel will fully recover. Will we all still fly as much as pre-covid? And what will the travel experience look like with all the new health security measures in place? Despite these challenges, maybe BECAUSE of these challenges, you can be sure that the Secret Retreats hotels, inns, lodges, boats and restaurants will provide you with quality, safe and fascinating experiences for you and your family for your post-covid travel. Now, let us tell you why, so that you can leave your worries behind and start planning your next Asian holidays!

Secret Retreats are small, family owned boutique properties where guests are cared for as they would family members…the delightful homes of the owners, they are Your homes in Asia…

Each of the villas’ luxurious interiors feature contemporary design with a local touch—from modern locally handcrafted furnishings to antique pottery, porcelain and lush handwoven Isaan silks. Supanniga Home is the perfect place to escape the pressures of modern life, reconnect with family and loved ones, commune with nature, start your journey in wellness with meditation or perhaps yoga practice or simply learn about the beauty of Isan life, culture and cuisine.
