We invite you to join us at Kamalaya, a multi-award-winning Wellness Sanctuary and Holistic Spa set in an idyllic location on the tropical island of Koh Samui, Thailand.

Founded by John and Karina Stewart in 2005, Kamalaya offers a unique holistic wellness experience that integrates healing therapies from East and West, a breathtakingly beautiful natural environment, inspired healthy cuisine, holistic fitness practices and a wide range of results-driven wellness programs and small group retreats.

GWS delegates will experience a bespoke wellness program specially created for this year’s Summit. The “Taste of Kamalaya” program offers a brief immersion into Kamalaya’s expansive wellness offering and incorporates a synergy of treatments, therapies and modalities to benefit the mind, body and spirit.

After completing the program, guests will enjoy a greater sense of physical wellbeing and a heightened level of connection between the mind and body. In addition, they will rediscover the vital joy of reconnecting with their inner-self and the healing power of nature.

A Typical Day at Kamalaya Koh Samui . . .

Begin with a healthy breakfast overlooking the ocean or join one of the holistic activity classes offered, which may include yoga, pranayama, qi-gong, stretching or meditation.

Experience an authentic therapy or treatment in Kamalaya’s renowned Wellness Centre. Following lunch, enjoy a swim in one of Kamalaya’s two pools, unwind in the steam caves, or simply relax on the beach.
