In 2020 we will be returning to the amazing Thanyapura Health and Sports Resort on the beautiful tropical island of Phuket, Thailand.
Phuket is famous for its year-round warm weather with average highs of 27-29 C. Add to this incredible scenery and world class training facilities and this makes Thanyapura the perfect venue for those looking for a quality winter training week.
Swimming sessions take place in the beautiful Thanyapura 50m Olympic Pool. The pool is only a few minutes walk from the hotel accommodation which makes the early morning routine super easy and stress free. Alongside the main pool is an additional 25m pool which is perfect for warm-ups, cool downs and drills.
Bike sessions take place on the roads around Phuket. Road surfaces are very good and the views are incredible. There are plenty of hills to climb as well as flats to stretch the legs and admire the views. Even the bike hill reps session is a pleasure as it is done within metres of the ocean. Just watch out for the crabs scuttling across the road!
Run sessions - Thanyapura resort is set in the countryside so we have the choice of either running around some of the regions roads or trails, or on the world class running track right situated on the resort itself.
The camp schedule will vary from day-to-day and will be flexible but in general, the day will start with a swim session of around an hour. It will then be time to refuel with breakfast before preparing to head out for the next training session. On most days there will be a bike ride. The rides will vary in length and terrain, each with a specific training focus. There will also be run sessions on most days. Again, each run session will have a specific aim (even if that is just a gentle social/recovery run following the bike).
The overall feel of the camp will be informal and relaxed (sessions will start on time however, so be warned!). Athletes are free to choose whether they attend all training sessions - there is no pressure from the coach, it is up to you! Between training sessions, your time will be your own to rest, recover and explore!
Camp Fee £799 per person.
*Costs are based on two people sharing a double room. If you would prefer single occupancy this can be arranged for an additional £350
Thanyapura is a 77-room premium resort and as such the hotel, their rooms, food and other facilities are very good quality. Athletes will be staying in the 'Pool Wing' area of the resort which offers a dynamic and refreshing atmosphere for guests with a 25m recreational pool, pool bar and 24-reception. The Pool Wing is surrounded by green gardens so provide the perfect environment for recovering after hard training sessions!

Thanyapura Resort has several restaurants and cafes including The Booster Deli and Cafe, Khun Khao, DiLite and DiVine. Daily breakfast will be taken in the DiVine Restaurant where guests can select from a buffet style breakfast which includes freshly baked breads, free-range eggs and organic fruits and vegetables. The menu has been designed to include elements of Local Thai Favorites, Raw Plant Based, Vegan, Western, European and Asian specialties.

Travel Arrangements: The camp fee does not include your travel to Phuket and you will need to arrange your own transportation to Phuket Airport. Most travellers will be coming from the UK so the flight we recommend is the Thai Airlines flight TG911 that leaves London Heathrow at 11:50 on Saturday 9th February and arrives in Phuket (with a transfer in Bangkok) at 09:55 on Sunday 10th. You will be tired on arrival on the 10th but with a light day on Sunday and a good nights sleep Sunday night, you should be ready to train on Monday morning!
The recommended return flight is the Thai Airlines flight TG202 that leaves Phuket at 10:55 on Sunday 17th February. This also transfers at Bangkok and lands back at Heathrow at 19:35 on Sunday evening.
Final Itinery: Around 6 weeks before the camp, we will send you a document containing all the information you will need to get the most out of your trip.
