Koh Samui

Thailand's award-winning wellness sanctuary and holistic spa retreat offers complete spa programs in an awe-inspiring natural setting. While many visit the haven to partake in the wellness programs, the retreat is open to guests seeking a rejuvenating holiday; complimentary offerings include wellness consultations and holistic activities. Kamalaya, meaning "lotus realm," an ancient symbol for the growth and unfolding of the human spirit, is designed around a former Buddhist monks' cave, where today's guests can meditate. Healthful cuisine is served at the three on-site restaurants, and its 60 guest rooms and villas--amid tropical vegetation, natural streams, and ancient boulders-- connect guests with the beautiful surroundings.
