Kamalaya is a great place to relax, workout and pamper your body and mind.
* food and drinks (amazing, very fresh, yummy) 99% of the menu is ultra-healthy and the curries are AMAZING. All the fruits/veggie cocktails are tasty.
* The property is beautiful and very well kept up. [As mentioned by other travellers, Kamalaya is on a steep hill that you cannot avoid, I didn't mind it but you need to be aware]
* the fitness classes (from personal training to yoga, pilates or a one-hour boot camp session on the beach) I LOVED IT ALL - the teachers are all great honestly.
* the SPA treatments: massages (prefered one by far is the Thai Massage), body scrub & wrap, manicure, pedicure... were FAB! the ladies at the Spa are delightful and very dedicated to their customers wellbeing.
Considering the amount of money I spent on this 10 day fitness retreat, I expected it to be perfect. It was great but far from meeting my expectations. I travel a lot and more often than not, I am very pleasantly surprised. Unfortunately, this was not one of those times.
* Although the personnel is very sweet, their level of English is appalling. It enduces many misunderstandings and unpleasant annoyances... I will spare you the details.. but grrr
* The room i was in was cute but for that price.. I was a bit surprised. (I had a suite) it's location was great though... the A/C is a real problem. I had no remote control so had to get up to adjust it and it's the loudest A/C i have EVER come across. not good (and it's too hot to avoid using it)
* you can change treatments in your package but at a cost (20%!).
* very pricey (especially for Thailand) but I knew that before I went so fine.
Overall, I would recommend Kamalaya as I did come home happy, rested and fit. Would I go back?... I might! or I'll try Chiva Som instead which I hear might be slightly better (not cheaper though!)
