Thailand In Style adds the Kamalaya, Koh Samui to its collection of health, wellness and rejuvenation destinations in Thailand. A Wellness Sanctuary and Holistic Spa, Kamalaya embraces nature with rooms and villas, yoga pavilions, pools and outdoor hot tubs set amongst granite boulders, streams and tropical vegetation and sweeping views.
Practiced by Mesopotamians, Egyptians and Minoans, Greeks and Romans spa-going is no newcomer to society and yet as an addition to the travel chest it may appear an apparent newcomer. Since "the early days" (the mid to late 1990's) spas have sprouted in abundance driven by mass marketing campaigns and advertising, the "new" industry seeking to create a fashionable and healthy public identity.
Today, with the pressure to create, invent and clarify, to brand and to position, many spas have emerged exploiting the fashionable aspect of identity whilst loosing sight of the purpose but Kamalaya on Koh Samui, an island in the Gulf of Thailand, not only pioneered the notion of Spa Retreats in the area but remains stoically focused on the roots of the practice.
"The idea behind Kamalaya is that by the time you leave, you'll be happy, healthy and relaxed, but internally you'll have something to take away with you. All the other spas out there had better sit up and take notice, because this is where the industry needs to be." - Tiffany Darke, The Sunday Times, UK, June 18, 2006
In selecting Spas, Health and Wellness Retreats, Hotels and Villas for its exclusive tailor made holidays in Thailand, the company places great importance on authenticity and defines spas as being places that focus on prevention as opposed to cure.
"We select Spas for their ability to vigorously promote healthy lifestyles, fitness, spirituality and relaxation" says Miguel Cunat, CEO of Thailand in Style, "Experts should be on-hand to tailor individual plans that incorporate physical, physiological and psychological processes and above-all, every client who experiences a Spa Retreat through Thailand in Style should benefit from a positive legacy of their experience long after their return home".
People go to spas for fitness, stress management, peace of mind, pampering, pleasure, health and wellness. Previous Spa clients of Thailand in Style are unanimous in their needs; Time, Space and Guidance. Kamalaya is a tropical sanctuary with the environment, facilities and expertise necessary to exceed expectations.
With a moniker that emphasizes "Wellness Sanctuary" as opposed to Spa, Kamalaya's spiritual epicenter is a Monk's cave located in a lush green ravine that once served Buddhist monks as a place of meditation and spiritual retreat. Around the ravine stilted wooden huts, lotus flower-studded ponds, honeysuckle bushes and coconut-laden palms blend harmoniously before merging with the powdered, private white-sand beach and turquoise sea below.
The accommodation consisting of Hillside Rooms, open suites and spacious villas have been designed to blend with the valley and overlook the pristine coastline of southern Koh Samui. Pre-existing ancient rocks and trees have been skilfully incorporated into many of the structures as defining elements. Cream-linens, Asian textiles and art pieces bedeck the interiors.
Facilities include the Wellness Sanctuary itself with open air/indoor treatment rooms and yoga pavilion built on top of the cliff. A proper lap pool is available for a sweat-inducing swim and a separate relaxation / recreational pool to satisfy those more lazy moments. A series of plunge-pools at varying temperatures assist circulation while a spectacular steam room hollowed out of a cave maintains the holistic authenticity of Kamalaya.
While Kamalaya considers exercise an essential component of wellness this is no New Age Boot Camp and a pilgrimage to Kamalaya is designed to derive as much enjoyment as it is benefit. Breakfasts are deliciously healthy and varied with an absence of fat-soaked bacon and reconstituted sausages. The menus are constantly inventive involving both Thai and European dishes.
Thailand in Style welcomes the Kamalaya to its collection of boutique hotels and villas in Thailand and highly recommends it to their clients as a destination where the nurturing of your whole being is energized through the location, the facilities, the programs, the retreats and of course the cuisine.
