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

I just spent 7 days at Kamalaya at the end of September - beginning October 2014 completeing the Asian Bliss program and loved it. I was slightly hesitant in the beginning as wellness can seep into too esoteric for my taste but all concerns were quickly swept aside. The friendliness of the staff was the best I have ever experienced... More

I just spent 5 days in Kamalaya between September 5 and 12 and needless to see it was too short. One needs at least 7 full days to explore and enjoy the wonders of this high end, friendly, caring, rejuvenating resort. Most guests seems to stay 14 days, which I totally understand. From the arrival at the Koh Samui airport... More

Everyone should experience kamalaya once at least. I believe they have one of the best holistic treatments and very effective as well. The spa and food there are second to none. Amazing glorious food!!!! Even your detox cuisines are yummy. The only gripe I have are the rooms. Somehow I don't find them exceptionally clean even after housekeeping. But at... More
