Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary
& Holistic Spa
Centered around a monk's cave that once served Buddhist monks as a place of meditation and spiritual retreat, Kamalaya's essence is expressed in its name, 'Lotus (kamal) Realm (alaya)', an ancient symbol for the growth and unfolding of the human spirit.
Kamalaya has a beautiful beachfront location, just 45 minutes from Koh Samui Airport, which has direct flights from Bangkok, Hong Kong, Singapore and Phuket, and more. Additionally, Bangkok Airways runs regular flights to Samui from Phuket, from which there are flights to many other international locations.
Kamalaya’s 59 rooms and villas are situated amidst ancient, granite boulders, streams and tropical vegetation, with existing rocks and trees as defining elements for many of the structures. Asian textiles and carefully selected art pieces combine with modern amenities to create comfortable, serene and elegant interiors. All rooms include air-conditioning, CD/stereo system; yoga mat; refrigerator; telephone; iPod dock; beverages, fruit and snacks, and Wi-Fi is available at an additional cost. Rooms do not include televisions and DVD players, however these can be requested.
At Kamalaya, the cuisine is an integral component of the holistic wellness concept. The menus reflect Kamalaya’s philosophy of healthy living and the celebration of different cultures, featuring fresh and healthy dishes with enough sumptuous twist to satisfy the most discerning palates. Co-created by Karina Stewart, Kamalaya’s Co-founder and a doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and the Kamalaya Chef, Kamalaya’s healthy cuisine is influenced by Karina’s wealth of knowledge in functional medicine and cellular detoxification. It is based on principles of Asian healing traditions, as well as the latest nutritional research. The healthy, inspired cuisine is a fusion of Eastern and Western culinary traditions and menus include extensive vegetarian options as well as fresh seafood, poultry and lamb dishes.
