No amount of raving could ever do this place the quality of review it deserves. from arrival to departure it is truly a beautiful and profound experience! I can't wait to come back and enjoy all it has to offer a second third fourth time! If you've ever needed a moment to stop unplug and reboot yourself from a new place of self awareness this is it! the food is spectacular and the people are truly Beautiful Souls! Extroadinary experience!
I was on the Finding Emotional Balance Retreat and have to say that it was fantastic. Beyond expectations, life changing. The mentors were great and very knowledgable. The resort is beautiful, food was awesome, staff super friendly. Lots of walking and going up and down stairs as the resort is set on a cliff. Felt very safe. If you have the money, go!
Beyond our expectations
We stayed at Kamalaya for a 3 nights room only package. As this was our first spa and wellness stay we were not sure what to expect. We received a very warm welcome on arrival with Kamalaya’s signature fruit drink and cold face towels. We were taken by golf buggy for a tour of the grounds and were introduced to different staff members at a few of the different heath centres, when we arrived at our villa we were both impressed and without doubt the best accomodation we have ever stayed in. No detail has been overlooked plenty of free glass bottles drinking water, fresh fruit and as a gift from Kamalaya ametal flask each to fill up at the many drinking stations around the grounds. We both love the outdoor shower and the view from our deck overlooks Kamalaya Beach. Next we were collected by golf buggy and taken to the Wellness centre for a heath check up, it is free and painless and we both took a few ideas away from the consultation. We like the digital detox, you are given one hour free high speed wifi for your stay,however, you can purchase extra time if you wish 300 Baht for 24 hours or 1,000 Baht for your whole stay. We both found dinner a little disappointing, both our meals were very bland and expensive we ordered a pumpkin curry and zucchini spaghetti with brown rice 1,100 Baht including 10% service charge and 7% VAT. We woke refreshed thanks to the most comfortable bed in Thailand! The breakfast buffet is amazing and well worth the 1,900 Baht for two people. We were given a tour of the buffet tables and as we were not a Detox package we could eat whatever we wished I usually eat congee ( rice soup ) for breakfast. I asked if they served congee and I was told of the different congee dishes and ordered the chicken with red rice and no extra charge and it was delicious. We have attended a few of the free classes and they start at 7:30 am and are held throughout the day until 8:00 pm so you will find something to take your interest from Pranayama, Qi Gong, tea sharing, aqua aerobics and talks about stress dissolution. We enjoyed just walking the grounds and you discover little secret areas to sit and relax with free ginger and mulberry teas and bottled water. If you walk through the Wellness Centre you will find a steam room and three outdoor plunge pools with temperatures of warm, hot and cool. All the staff are very courteous, happy and speak conversation standard English and go out of their way to ensure you have a great stay, they all enjoy generous working conditions and this shows as they feel appreciated by the management of Kamalaya and I was told there are 350 staff and 76 rooms. We both love what Kamalaya represents and their vision “ feel life’s potential “
Just what I needed!
I stayed at Kamalaya at the end of August for 8 days under one of their programs. It was exactly what I needed and I had a fantastic time there. The location is beautiful - plenty of green, a view of the sea, a beach should you need it and you'll get these fantastic views across various locations across the hotel like the yoga pavilion and alchemy bar. The hotel itself is on a hill, so yes it does take a lot of walking but they do golf carts to take you around. I enjoyed the daily work out and felt all the better for it. The amenities are great, the hotel and all the facilities are very clean and every part of the hotel has the Kamalaya aroma from all the essential oils, incense and candles being burned! Absolutely all of the staff were wonderful - incredibly pleasant, friendly and helpful. My birthday fell during this trip, and I was left with a gift in my room and a card from everyone which was very sweet! If you're traveling alone it is a great place to go and unwind - there are many people doing the same. There are plenty of people to speak to and also a communal table, but at the same time everyone is very respectful if you need alone time, including staff who are attentive of this but also very chatty and friendly if you do want conversation! If you're going with others, there are plenty of things to do on-site, including holistic activities, use of general amenities and any wellness classes or treatments, that you may even get to maintain some alone time should you want it with everyone doing different things. I was lucky to be able to go in the low season. The classes and communal areas were not very busy which was very much appreciated. Everyone is somewhere on site doing something so can be very serene. I even managed to have the entire pool to myself one afternoon! I had a pretty full on program which I liked, it kept me busy and also made the whole trip easier as I didn't really need to think about what I wanted to do. I enjoyed the massages and treatments at the wellness center under my program. I was able to try some treatments which I wouldn't usually select, in addition to joining some holistic activities that were new to me and thoroughly enjoyed. I did not get bored once during my time there, but I did have a friend who went before me who said they couldn't have done more than 5 days. So be aware of want you need. During my stay most people were back in their rooms by 9/10pm, so if you're looking for a very lively place this might not be for you. I love it and embraced all of it, including the digital detox. If you're looking for a place to unwind, have some time for yourself, detox, drink lots of coconut water, and have some amazing, healthy food - this is definitely the place to go. Everything was exactly as I had hoped for! I will definitely be back!
A piece of the heaven on earth
Well.. your journey start with a fancy SUV waiting you at the airport. The drive is about 40 mins to the resort. Room is amazing viewing the sea. I have signed up on one of there fitness programs. The will run few evaluation test to measure your body mass, fitness, ...etc People working there are way above amazing. Friendly, helpful and nice. I would definitely recommend it for any one who is looking for sanctuary for a great time. The offer full board packages. You don’t need to get out of the resort. You will live few days elegantly.
