Samantha's Review of Kamalaya

There is a special magic at Kamalaya, an award-winning sanctuary and holistic spa carved into the hillside of the lush Thailand jungle and overlooking the aqua blue sea. It is the perfect setting, a delight for the senses and also the winner of the title of Thailand's best spa. My journey begins at Koh Samui airport where I am greeted with a cool towel and a warm smile, I am glad to arrive...

Paul's Review of Kamalaya

Having spent seven days in Thailand including a two night stopover in Bangkok at the Anantara Riverside Resort & Spa, I was ready to begin my healthy holiday at Kamalaya in Koh Samui. Voted as Destination Spa of the Year in Asia and Favourite Spa in Thailand, I was looking forward to spending one week re-energising myself at this stunning Wellness Sanctuary and Holistic Spa.

Guest Reviews of Kamalaya

All of the elements for a wonderfully restorative week are in abundance at Kamalaya. The health and wellbeing practitioners are brilliant, the staff in reception and the restaurants are wonderful and full of care and attention to detail. Everything was arranged or delivered to a very high standard. The food is a standout, absolutely gorgeous. The real difference between Kamalaya and other health retreats that I have experienced was in the flexibility. I arrived and left on dates I chose, I adapted the program to suit my needs and goals, I ate when I wanted and could sit quietly on my own if that's how I was feeling (as opposed to always eating in groups at set times). The tailored individual approach at Kamalaya combined with the high level of quality and care are why I will be back.

- pairoftravellers, TripAdvisor Review -October 2015



Have just come back from Kamalaya where I have been for the second time after last November. It is really like Paradise and a safe haven. It is wonderfully settled in the hills and with so much nature around. Great views on the sea and so inspiring and relaxing. The Yoga Classes, the possibilities for sports, the great healthy food, the meditations and workshops, the quiet and peace AND! Especially all the great employees who really make you feel like at home and truly welcome. Furthermore the possibiity to really learn things that will chance your life and perspective and let you grow! I will definitely come back again. Thanks for all!

I just spent 7 days at Kamalaya and loved every minute. From the moment I arrived to the moment I left, I was so grateful that I had chosen it as the place to re-charge and 'embrace change' before starting a new job. I didn't expect it to have such a profound impact on me but it really was a little slice of paradise, with a very calm and enriching energy. It is the perfect place to come and contemplate your life, to make some changes to your mind and body, to re-charge your batteries, to detox, or simply lie by the pool.

There are so many interesting treatments and classes on offer there is always something fascinating and relaxing to do. The international group of therapists were all outstanding - so intuitive, wise and knowledgeable I have come away with so much more awareness of life, my mind and health and have the tools to carry what I learnt with me. The staff were all so kind, friendly and attentive, the facilities wonderful - beautiful pools, delicious food (you are spoilt for choice!) I highly recommend Kamalaya, it is a very special soulful experience and I hope to return again soon. Thank you to all the wonderful staff for making it such a beautiful, life changing experience not just a lovely holiday.
