Kamalaya resort, Hua Thanon

Kamalaya resort, Hua Thanon

It's full name is Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary and Holistic Spa Resort and is centred around a monk's cave that once served Buddhist monks as a place of meditation and spiritual retreat, Kamalaya's essence is expressed in its name, 'Lotus (kamal) Realm (alaya)', an ancient symbol for the growth and unfolding of the human spirit.

The accommodations include cozy hillside rooms, open suites, and spacious villas overlooking the coastline of southern Koh Samui. Buildings rest amidst ancient, granite boulders, streams, and tropical vegetation making the retreat at one with nature. Come here for what was once called “the cure” and the wellness and holistic therapies cover detox, yoga, Tai Chi, ayurvedic therapy and dozens more. The meals are fabulous, this is not spa cuisine unless you want it, the healthy food includes meat and wine too.

Well hidden away with hardly any outside distraction at all at a very quiet corner of the island, it's a haven for retreat and working on your wellness. Prices are at the medium to higher end range but well worth the investment.
