Tucked away in a lush valley, overlooking the coast of southern Koh Samui, lies the hypnotically-beautiful Kamalaya. The award winning Kamalaya is located in Koh Samui, Thailand. This beautiful island is abundant in sandy beaches, coral reefs, and coconut trees. The spiritual energy is so pure and intense, it’s no wonder that Buddhist monks came here to contemplate, and it’s around their cave of worship that the resort has been built. Everything is geared for total and complete transformation. At Kamalaya, everything is directed towards a self-discovery. 

It’s just recently been revamped, so the rooms are bright and airy, and the additions of a three-storey fitness emporium and a 25-metre pool means it now is also the best looking, and best equipped spa in Thailand, if not Asia. The joy of staying in this most stellar of spas is that you will be nurtured by some of Asia’s best healers. You can expect the Traditional Chinese Medicine to be top notch as Karina Stewart, the owner, is a master of TCM. All of the treatments dig deep and are given by caring and loving therapists. 

Many of the counsellors have been monks, (and you will also get the best overseas visiting experts), the near-vegan food is delectable, and your mouth will zing with the Asian fusion taste explosion. There is no calorie counting here, that’s not the Kamalaya way, you can have a little of what you fancy, and even have the odd glass of organic wine for dinner in the evening. There is a state-of-the-art diagnostic centre, a mass of interesting classes, with new Optimum Fitness programmes been introduced shortly. There are all sorts of yoga, and Pilates that will burn your core, and there are meditation experts who will teach you to clear your mind, and to let go. The spa, the super-organized power centre of the resort provides every conceivable type of healing - Ayurveda used to de-stress and recover; sleep enhancement programmes aided by acupuncture; and cognitive healing, releasing therapy to cope with loss and bereavement.

New to Kamalaya are group Life Enhancement retreats that allow for guests to reflect and heal collectively. Kamalaya is the ultimate place to go to fix your issues, it’s perfect for the stressed-out, adrenalin-depleted city goer, or for those who want to slow down their pace.
