Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary & Holistic Spa Kamalaya is a multi-award winning Wellness Sanctuary and Holistic Spa ideally located on the beachfront on the tropical southern coastline of Koh Samui, Thailand. Centred 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. Founded by John and Karina Stewart in 2005, the resort offers a holistic wellness experience that integrates healing therapies from East and West, a breathtakingly beautiful natural environment, inspired healthy cuisine, holistic fitness practices and customised wellness programs and retreats ranging from Detoxification to Stress & Burnout, as well as Optimal Fitness, Ideal Weight, Personal Yoga Synergy and the new Sleep Enhancement program. The principle of synergy is an essential part of the Kamalaya concept; the holistic wellness services are at the core of the Kamalaya experience, and accommodation and other facilities are natural extensions and expressions of the concept and vision. Therefore, Kamalaya’s focus is not on individual services but on how the different treatments, therapies, activities, environmental aspects, cuisine and people come together to create a synergistic wellness experience.
