Kamalaya Koh Samui offers a holistic approach to wellness that makes it as luxurious as anyone could feasibly imagine. This is seriously organic, contemplative living for better health. On first glance it looks like any luxury resort by the sea. Set on a private stretch of beach adjacent to Laem Set Beach on a small, peaceful lagoon, guests can shake off all the stresses of everyday life. The posh rooms, suites, and villas range from simple havens of quietude to large private pool retreats, either on the hillside, with a sea view, or on the beachfront. But scratch beneath the stylish surface and guests can rub their hands in self-effacing Buddhist delight at the wellness treasures that are the very foundation of this sanctuary.
There is a pervasively calm spirituality about this place that is wholesomely catching in every good way. Whether guests come for a small adjustment in attitude or an escape from sinful excess, they’ll come away knowing they’ve enjoyed a complete physical and spiritual overhaul. Nothing is prescriptive and everything about this place is inspiring. That includes the delicious food that is conjured up in the restaurants, cafés, and tea lounges. The appetising menus are designed with health and enduring vitality in mind.
This place is a self-contained nirvana of wellness facilities that include a fitness centre, two herbal steam “caverns”, plunge pools, an elixir (great juices) bar, yoga pavilion, and sala. There are two swimming pools, an art gallery that holds exhibitions of the work of some of the region’s most inspirational artists, a library, and TV Lounge (don’t fret – a TV can be brought to a room or villa upon request). Most importantly, there is a historic monk’s cave, an enchanting and inspiring place for reflection and meditation.
The sublime environment works hand-in-hand with healing therapies so guests can detox, de-stress, still the mind, and learn how to heal themselves.
Like the rest of the resort, the cuisine offered is healthy, invigorating, and satisfying. The menus feature fresh, seasonal produce bursting with nutrients and medicinal properties to offer a holistic experience. The specially formulated ‘Detox Cuisine’ is low inflammatory, low allergenic, and low GI vegetarian dishes that will convince even the staunchest disbelievers that healthy food doesn’t have to be bland.
Restaurants include: Soma Restaurant, Amrita Café, The Alchemy Tea Lounge.
