Kamalaya is a holistic wellness and spa resort located in Koh Samui, Thailand. It offers healthy lifestyle, exercises, healing therapies, relaxation and nutritious cuisine in beautiful surroundings looking over the Gulf of Thailand. The resort is built around a cave temple, which once served Buddhist monks as a place of meditative retreat, and is now providing an inspiring ambience for this place.
Staying at the resort
The resort includes cosy rooms with views either to sea or over the hills or you can choose to say in lovely villas located around the resort. We stayed in a sea view villa, with a spacious bed room-living room area with an open-air bathroom. The villas are lovely and include your own balcony. Some of the villas have their own pool, which is lovely in a nice weather. Click here to read more about my holiday at Kamalaya.
The Kamalya cuisine is a combination of nutritious and delicious dishes. You can choose to follow the light detox menu, weight management options or eat whatever you prefer – it doesn’t really matter what you choose, every plate is a piece of art made from mouth-watering, fresh ingredients. After a week you feel and see the difference in your body and mind. Read more about the Kamalaya cuisine from my lunch and dinner blog posts.
