Kamalaya Koh Samui, a spa on an island paradise

Located off the east coast of Kra Isthmus, Thailand, the island of Ko Samui has seen a significant increase in the number of tourists as more and more people have discovered it. With its coral reefs and the coconut tree lined, sandy beaches, Koh Samui did not remain secret for long.

Kamalaya Koh Samui is one of Thailand’s award-winning Wellness Sanctury and Holistic Spa resorts. Guests are treated for stress and burnout by an international theme of naturaopaths, creating their own, individual health programmes with services ranging from holistic medicine and yoga, to spa and healing therapies.

The resort itself is centered around a cave that once served as a place of meditation for Buddhist monks. The name itself, Lotus (Kamal) Realm (Alaya), symbolizes the growth of the human spirit in the ancient Buddhist tradition. Traditional Chinese Medicine, the Indian system of Ayurveda and Thai herbal healing are all available for you for a truly transformative experience.

The Wellness Sanctuary features a huge variety of lodgings. From beachfront villas and penthouses, to villas with their own indoor swimming pools as well as ‘Hillside Rooms’, nestled among large boulders and lust trees.

Cleanse Your Body With Kamalaya’s Unique Detox Programme

Kamalaya features not only the amenities necessary for spiritual restoration, but also for the physical. Three tiers of detox programmes are available – ranging from the introductory program to those new to the process to a comprehensive one for experienced detoxers.

The simple and effective program features Kamalaya’s delicious and healthy cuisine combined with a large variety of holistic therapies meant to cleanse the body, mind as well as spirit. You will feel revitalized on all levels and feel a new ’lightness of being’.

The rest of Kamayala’s menu mirrors this pursuit of a healthy lifestyle with an exclusively vegan and vegetarian cuisine.

Explore an Island Paradise

Kamalaya functions much like a self contained village and features a wide range of facilities to keep you occupied during your stay.

All of the dining areas, such as the Soma Restaurant, the Amrita Cafà and the Alchemy Tea Lounge offer their refreshments in an open-style interior settings with wonderful views of the nearby beaches.The comprehensive Wellness facilities include a fitness centre, a herbal steam cavern, plunge pools as well as a variety of Yoga classrooms.

There are also two swimming pools available; a lap pool and a leisure pool. The local art gallery impresses its visitors with works from some of Thailand’s most established artists.

Finally, the island’s centre piece is The Monks’ Cave, a centuries old cave, encircled by the rest of the compound. This cave was once used by Buddhist monks as a haven for meditation and spiritual enlightenment. Even today, their ancient traditions add an aura of spirituality to the already stunningly beautiful island.

Most famous among the monks is Arjan Daeng, a Buddhist sage known for his ability to communicate with cobras and his extensive knowledge of healing plants. Daeng built his own bote and made numerous pilgrimages to nearby islands where he established other monasteries. Most of all, he is remembered for his doctrine of universal compassion and for being an exemplar of self-discipline, simplicity and patience.
