Kamalaya was the vision of John and Karina Stewart, both with extensive experience of Asian and Himalayan spiritual traditions and Karina, a doctor of Chinese medicine. Their partner, Marc brought excellent hospitality and management skills to what has proved, over the last 15 years, to be a perfect team.
A stay here is about enjoying the beautiful natural scenery, the lagoon and white sandy beaches, cascading streams and lush tropical vegetation. It is also about the people – and staff here are genuinely interested in you. In fact, your Kamalaya hosts are wellness specialists themselves because it also about you.
Yoga, spa, massage, delicious healthy cuisine, bit of gym, swimming in the sea – sound good? Take it a step further if you like. Kamalaya will suggest the perfect combination of these things to help you relax, un-stress, detox, healthy-up – whatever is your preference. Like it?
Want a little more? Complementary therapies from Western and Eastern medical traditions, visiting healers, discussions (individual or group), emotional balance, weight loss, fitness, better sleep – whatever you would like to look into, the team are here for you. The magic at Kamalaya is that they get the balance just right. Take any of these elements of healthy living just as far as you want; talk about what you will but relax and enjoy yourself.
You are living in a little corner of paradise in a luxury lodge, spread out over the hillside like a small village. Beautiful suites or private villas, plunge pools, private decks, sea views or hilltop breezes, there is the perfect spot for you. Restaurants, cafes, pools, art gallery, library, lounge, gym, hammam – all this before you get to the beach and sea.
Come to Kamalaya. Have the most wonderful holiday – but go home feeling better than you have ever felt before.
