Why we like this Hotel

Often described as life-changing by past guests, there is nowhere quite like Kamalaya. The spirituality here is utterly palpable, and you feel immediately decompressed the moment you step through the doors. Where Kamalaya really excels is in mental wellbeing, teaching guests how to overcome their stress, and cope with life’s challenges. Their Emotional Rebalance retreat is totally transformational. If you are looking for a total overhaul, mentally and physically, then Kamalaya is for you.
