Description

Located on Koh Samui’s serene south coast, the resort weaves around a sacred hillside where Buddhist monks and nuns have been coming to seek enlightenment for hundreds of years. The landscape is beautiful, with all boulders, banyan trees, birdsong, and a beach, with plenty of enchanting corners for contemplation. The resort is around a 40-minute drive from the airport.

Humming with peaceful vibes, it attracts an astonishing array of characters; slide onto the communal table at breakfast and you might end up sitting alongside a U.N. ambassador, a BAFTA winner, a Fortune 500 CEO, a musician, or a runway model, all happily casting off their high-profile roles for a few days or weeks of peace.

There are over a dozen different room categories, ranging from sunny hillside suites with balconies and magnificent sea views to split-level villas hidden in the jungle, to cavernous beachfront villas perched on giant boulders with outdoor bathrooms and private infinity pools. The styling is intentionally simple; creamy walls, indigenous woods, large comfortable beds, and a smattering of local artworks

Kamalaya has two lovely al fresco restaurants and an approach to nutrition which eschews dieting in favor of promoting healthy eating habits, which are both mentally and physically nourishing.

At the center of Kamalaya are the Spa and Wellness Centre, Amrita and Soma restaurants as well as the communal Alchemy Lounge and well-stocked library. Kamalaya is a network of pathways surrounded by green foliage that links the accommodation to the rest of the resort. Above the wellness center at the top of Kamalaya, you will find the fitness center, lap pool, and yoga pavilion. Some of the hills are quite steep but if anyone has walking difficulties a buggy is always on hand.
