KAMALAYA / Buddhists do it better
Kamalaya Koh Samui is all about aligning mind, body, and spirit. Canadian John Stewart and his wife Karina, a master in traditional Chinese medicine, take a holistic approach to well-being that integrates complementary therapies from Eastern and Western traditions.
Some of the world’s most in-demand practitioners come here to share their wisdom – from yogis to naturopaths, acupuncturists, and meditation masters. Traditional treatments are geared towards twenty-first century ailments: burn-out, stress, insomnia, addiction, and depression.
Authenticity is the watchword at this peaceful sanctuary. Simple, thatched cabins enfolded by palm trees are kitted out in traditional Thai style. Wholesome organic food, pepped up with Asian spices, is anything but bland.
But the key takeaway from this healing hideaway is a renewed sense of joie de vivre. You will leave feeling lighter, happier, and more fulfilled.
