To start planning your vacation to Kamalaya
Kamalaya is Thailand’s first Wellness Sanctuary and Holistic Spa, founded on the tropical island of Koh Samui in November 2005. Its key concept is to promote holistic wellness - harmony in mind, body and spirit. Each guest receives a complimentary Wellness Consultation to ensure individual aspirations are supported in every possible way.
The beauty of Kamalaya’s surrounding nature is integrated into the simple elegance of its architecture and design. Buildings are nestled amidst ancient, granite boulders, streams, and tropical vegetation, with existing rocks and trees as defining elements for many of the structures. Rooms have elegant interiors and modern comforts such as air-conditioning, tea and coffee bar, snack center, refrigerator, sound system, telephone and internet connection. However, they are without a television so you can really escape from reality and focus on yourself.
Your stay here is a lifestyle, everything from what you wear to the meals you eat will be tailored to help you achieve your aim of coming here in the first place. Meals are specially designed whether you are on a detox, fitness training or healthy program. There are also menus to cater for those who are eating normally too!
This is a very specialized resort, so you would only stay here if you are on a wellness journey or accompanying someone who is. If this is your aim, then look nowhere else.
There are several different room categories at Kamalaya, varying for their location, size, views and amenities. Whichever category you choose, you can guarantee an air of calm as you walk through your door with light airy colors and unfussy décor.
Cosy rooms found amongst the boulders and trees and located near the hilltop Yoga Pavilion and Yantra Hall. Views are of the sea or garden, some have balconies and they are furnished with either twin or king bed. They measure 35 sq meters.
With a location at the top of the resort you have sea views. These suites have a private balcony and are close to Soma Restaurant and Alchemy Tea Lounge. Most have outdoor showers and bathtub. They measure 65 sq.meters.
These villas look out to the sea, beach and the valley and have a large balcony with a daybed. Several feature indoor/outdoor bathrooms. They measure up to 100 square meters.
|Beach Front Villa||
There's just one of these found on the quiet beach. It has a covered balcony, living area and an indoor/outdoor bathroom.
Children are allowed to stay at Kamalaya, however we wouldn't recommend it simply because there is very little for them to do. Children below 16 years are not allowed to take part in any of the wellness programs.
A full board stay is recommended to make the most of your program at Kamalaya. There are three dining options - Soma Restaurant, Amrita Café and the Alchemy Tea Lounge. Their relaxed open-air venues offer menus to match your program. You will find yourself taking many of the delicious recipes home with you!
Whilst Kamalaya is on the beach, it is worth being aware that it is not a beach resort. It is possible to walk along the beach, but it is rocky in parts and the sea is shallow so not really suitable for swimming.
There are of course several wellness facilities at the resort to include a Shakti Fitness Center, the herbal steam cavern, plunge pools, Elixir Bar, a yoga pavilion and a yoga sala. There are also two swimming pools to include one lap pool. The Monk's Cave which provided the original energy for the location of this holistic retreat also worth spending some time at for some peaceful meditation.
Your chosen package will determine how you spend your day, whether that is boosting your fitness, finding peace with yourself or de-toxing to name a few. You can spend your day having treatments, using the facilities, learning from lectures and most importantly taking time out to truly relax and find inner peace.
