Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary & Holistic Spa is a multi-award-winning wellness sanctuary located on the southern coast of Koh Samui, Thailand, founded by John and Karina Stewart in 2005. John visited Koh Samui a few years earlier when one day a densely forested landscape studded with ancient granite boulders immediately captivated him. Walking the tropical jungle terrain reminded him of his years in northern India as a young monk, a memory that became even more vivid and significant when he came upon a cave that was once used as a place of meditation and spiritual retreat for a lineage of Buddhist monks. Serendipity had provided the place for him and Karina to build their dream. Since opening in November 2005, Kamalaya has been offering enriching holistic wellness programs which combine healing therapies from East and West, in a breathtakingly beautiful natural environment. It integrates an inspired healthy cuisine and various results-oriented wellness programs ranging from Detoxification to Stress & Burnout, as well as Healthy Lifestyle, Yoga Synergy and Emotional Balance. Kamalaya’s latest wellness program ‘Immunity & Resilience’ launched in June 2020 and is dedicated to support physical health, strength and balance of heart and mind.
