Kamalaya. I rarely leave somewhere itching to come back. As soon as I got home I booked my return holiday for this year. My first true relaxation / spa / healthy eating / no alcohol holiday and I am converted. I left Kamalaya following a 4 night stay feeling relaxed, refreshed, healthy. happy, grounded, fit and at peace with myself... More

Kamalaya is one of the most perfect places I have ever been to. It is not ostentatious, it is just relaxed luxury--where everything is thought of (from replacement combs, razors, toothbrushes and toothpaste in your bathroom cabinet to glass bottles of water, and tea made from lemongrass, ginger or mulberries available throughout the massage complex). The spa is not forceful... More

We stayed here as a couple a good while ago, when the rooms and hotel were relatively new. The trip down from room to beach is very steep but was not an issue. It is expensive and I would certainly not recommend this setting for a family - it has more an air of romantic or posh or specialist spa... More

If I could give it more stars, I would. This is a truly holistic wellness centre. It offers regular beauty therapies though that is not its focus. You can be as serious as you like about your stay - a full detox (which is not a fasting one), pick and choose your therapies yourself or from an assortment of packages.... More

My wife and I just returned from a two week spa experience at the Kamalaya Spa Retreat in Koh Samui. The room presented itself as very shabby with chipped furniture, fungus in the shower seals as well as cheap fittings throughout. The dining and breakfast room had cracks in the walls and what I believe water ingress since towels had... More

Kamalaya is a haven. Unlike dreadful places like Chiva Som, it is a non stress detox health retreat within the embrace of real nature and not a suburb. The food is delicious and beautifully presented, without any need to fast (which i=they don't do). Every pilates, yoga, gym, outlet is available. There is no need for deprivation only celebration that... More

Very, very special place to reconnect with nature and yourself. Staggeringly good food and some of the most talented 'wellness' practioners I've ever come across. I love the no phone policy (except in your rooms), Enjoy the nurturing.

Since visiting this place I have told all my friends to add it to their bucket lists. It is an absolute experience. There is something amazingly special about the atmosphere. As soon as you walk in you feel a sense calm come over you. The grounds are gorgeous and the pool area is incredible. The staff are absolutely amazing. So... More

All in all this is one of the nicest places you can spend time at. Stayed here for 9 days and did a program. Had numerous treatments ranging from massages to acupuncture to meditation. The beach is beautiful and the whole surrondings are very relaxing at all times. On Fridays nights you can release lanterns into the night sky. The... More
