I was not staying here as the resort was fully booked so I decided to come for dinner, the place looks lovely on arrival the views are wonderful and there is an extensive menu, I was told I was only able to be an hour for dinner and so I agreed. The place is nice however there is just something missing, I asked if I could come to the astrology free talk that was on and I was told no only for in house guests ! I then asked if I could book a private session with the guy I was told that I would be emailed, still have not been emailed That's fine but there was a level of attitude that I honestly felt, it was not warm there was just something missing, an intuitive feeling I had, the manager was in the office and did not even bother coming out to talk to me, they just sent the front of house staff to tell me.. I was considering booking into this resort for my last week but I'm not sure now after the general feeling I got! I spend $120 USD on dinner which I also felt was a bit over rated for what I got, down the road at sweet sisters they do amazing food similar to what was on menu and the price half and to be honest was better .. I'm sure it's lovely staying here but it lacked heart just saying some thing missing a great pity in fact as I can see the potential to be world class but general attitude lacking compared to where I am staying down the road
"Fantastic place to recharge the body"
After my wife and I spent 5 week holiday in Australia wining and dining our bodies were in desperate need for revitalisation. We elected to go onto the basic detox programme for 7 days. Everything was first class from start to finish. We stayed in a Hillside Seaview Room which had everything you need. The programme was well planned for both the treatments and the supplements. The food quality and choice were excellent. (Couldn't enjoy it all as on the Detox programme) Whilst the site is hilly it is easy to manoeuvre around and golf buggy rides are available if one finds the going tough. (day 2/3 of the programme) The staff both in the Wellness Centre and the restaurants are absolutely fantastic and spoil each and every guest. I initially went to support my wife but after day 2 I was converted to the programme. So much so that we will both add an extra week at the end of any indulgent holiday to recoup A must do experience .
"Outstanding health resort wonderful staff and food"
This is an extraordinary resort, miles from anywhere in the south of Koh samui. It is perched on the side of a very steep hill. Many of the treatment rooms are built around large boulders. It is not a resort for the disabled or elderly unable to cope with stairs, in spite of the many golf buggies whizzing around from hotel room to treatment etc. The facilities are Magnificant and unusually for Thailand well maintained. The new gym and lap pool are stunning, perched right at the top of the hill. The treatment staff and all the Thai waiters receptionists etc were great. Some of the treatments I did not like much. I was on the healthy weight programme which is pretty full on. Be careful of the infra red sauna. My kidneys became inflamed. The wellness reception would do well running a large corporation office, the way they juggle appointments and treatments for many people is astounding. On the programme the food is pretty sparse and lots of smoothies etc. I lost 3.5kgs in a week. And my bad back is improved. It is a large complex but is spread out so one never notices too many people about and there are lots of other activities such as yoga, talks, art, cooking etc. It is slightly prison like with tight security to the outside world. Downsides are there are lots and lots of stairs, it is very isolated and ... Very expensive. But considering the number of treatments, gym instruction, massages, acupuncture etc etc it is just about worth the money for a five star resort in a wonderful setting. One stupid irritation no wifi except in your room and they even charge for that - this in the 21st century. But they must be doing something right because chat at the communal table (a nice touch for singles) reveals that many guests are on their 4 and 5th visits.
"An ideal wellness and reset vacation"
If you are looking for a recharge and kickstart to a healthier and more mindful lifestyle then there is nowhere better than Kamalaya. I spent 10 nights relaxing and enjoying life, attending a daily yoga class, paddleboarding, sunning myself on a lovely beach, making new friends and dropping a few dress sizes. The staff were incredible. My mind was also opened up to more holistic therapies and wellness approaches and tools that will stay with me forever! I can't wait to return to Kamalaya.
Kamalaya is an exquisite place to go for a detox. It's beautiful - food is stunning. Amenities and activities all you would want from a spa resort. Everything about it is carefully ordered . A recharge for the senses and the soul
