Where you are going...

A serene haven is one way to describe Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary. Surrounded by greenery, in a place where monks used to meditate, Kamalaya is an oasis. The resort has been designed with respect for nature. Between the palm trees and tropical plants, with views of the sea. Koh Samui airport: approx. 45-minute drive

Why you’ll love it...

At Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary, personal development and growth go hand-in-hand with relaxation, comfort and luxury. Rest, discovery and insight are the order of the day at this absolute top class resort. The attention to the smallest of details is very evident from the outset. The rooms, the staff, the programmes, the specialist treatments, delicious meals and unrivalled atmosphere. They all reflect Kamalaya’s motto: ‘To feel life’s potential’. In other words, to experience life to its full potential. Inspirational!

Wellness, Spa and Health

Health With 29 treatment rooms, quiet areas, multiple saunas and pools, the spa is outstanding. The brand new fitness centre opened in 2015 and measures no less than 600m2. The gym is fitted with the latest cardio equipment, weights and all sorts of kit, including a Pilates reformer and kinesis wall. However, it is the specialist programmes at Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary that are utterly unbeatable. Perhaps you’re looking to detox, lose weight, learn how to sleep or manage your stress better? Or maybe you need pure relaxation, fancy a special yoga retreat or fitness holiday? For any or all of the above, this is the place to head for a personalised programme.

What’s on the Menu

Delicious! This one word sums up the food at Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary, which is highly acclaimed. The chefs cook original, refined and tasty meals, while the waiting staff serve them with care. The ingredients used are fresh and healthy. What’s more, they have a cleansing and calming effect. Despite them being light and pure, even the detox meals leave you feeling satisfied. Enjoy these at the Soma restaurant atop of a hill, or at the Amrita Cafe by the pool. There is a large communal table where – should you be that way inclined – you can pull up a chair to enjoy your meal together with other guests.

We love...

A session with Rajesh. This spiritual master coaches you straight to the solution of your problems.

The cooking workshop! Will teach you how to cook food as delicious as the food here.

An acupuncture treatment from Chinese Dr. Song for relief of all your complaints and ailments, just like that.

Good to know

Kamalaya is located on a hill. This means inclines and descents. If you’re healthy, this poses no problem. It could become an issue if you aren’t so good on your feet.
