KAMALAYA - Kamalaya might not be the most luxurious resort in Samui, but it is certainly one of Thailand’s best integrated wellness retreats. Programs are varied but newcomers should try the full-board, introduction program that aims to cleanse toxins from your body with a diet of pure organic food (no meat or sugary fruits and vegetables) and a number of body treatments over three days. More advanced programs, including colonic detox, are available for longer stays. Until October 31, special rates for Asia residents are from B39,000 per person for a selective three-night program.
