Tucked away in a lush valley, overlooking the coast of southern Koh Samui, lies the hypnotically-beautiful Kamalaya, a luxury wellness and holistic spa resort in, offering stress relief, detox, weight loss, fitness and yoga, for the ultimate healing experience. 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 25-metre pool and a three-storey fitness emporium means it is also now the most well equipped and beautfitul spa in Thailand, perhaps Asia. The joy of staying in this most stellar of spas is that you will be nurtured by some of Asia’s best healers. Karina Stewart, the owner, is a master of Traditional Chinese Medicine, so when it comes to authenticity and application, you will find no better. 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. Kamalaya provides every type of healing imaginable from sleep enhancement programmes aided by acupuncture; and cognitive healing, releasing therapy to cope with loss and bereavement to Ayurvedic treatments used to de-stress and recover.

New to Kamalaya are group Life Enhancement retreats that allow for guests to reflect and heal collectively. Kamalaya is the ideal place to go to address and resolve your issues, it’s perfect for the worn down and stressed out, or for those who just want to slow down their pace.
