Kamalaya Wellness Holiday Offer
Bonus Nights Stay 5 Pay 4
Kamalaya is a wonderful wellness sanctuary set in the south of Koh Samui. We know Thailand really well and usually Koh Samui wouldn’t be our first destination on the ‘must visit’ map but you know what, Kamalaya is a luxury holistic jewel on this island. It’s perched on a hillside, amongst the tropical palms and overlooking the ocean on the islands Southern coast which is by far less touristy.
Owners John and Karina Stewart both have rich histories of experience in Asian philosophy, Traditional Chinese medicine and Holistic healing therapies. Their vision combines Western scientific knowledge with ancient Eastern practices which work to promote healthy long term lives for those who visit.
How can food which sounds so healthy taste so good? Low allergenic, low glycemic, high energy cuisine is in order at Kamalaya. The meals are nutritious and filling so don’t worry about feeling hungry and enjoy your new found energy levels!
Kamalaya is on a hillside, scattered with palms which slopes down to the beach at the foot of the resort on the Southern coast of Koh Samui. We must point out that we thought that this coastline was by far the most peaceful and less touristy than other parts of the island.
Why is it a Sanctuary
Centred on an ancient meditation cave, Kamalaya has one foot in Eastern traditions with the one firmly set in Western science. It's stunning location, perched on the coastline of Koh Samui, offers breathtaking vistas of the ocean. It's a haven for relaxation and renewal with wonderful support system of naturopaths, healers and visiting practitioners in both Eastern and Western modalities.
Kamalaya has a wonderful selection of wellness programs such a different levels of detox, yoga and meditation. They also address sleep disorders and common problems such as stress and adrenal burn out. The atmosphere is peaceful and nurturing and the cuisine is super healthy and tasty too.
We adored the Detox Cuisine so much they gave us a recipe book from Kamalaya to take home! Of course the emphasis is on fresh, organic cuisine wherever possible and cooking methods are designed to enhance flavors and support vibrant health. Low allergenic,low inflammatory,low glycaemic and extremely high taste food is in order. We loved that they don't ask you to fast as it's harder to eat again after detoxing and this way you get some super recipe tips!
