Group Retreats 2022

Kamalaya Koh Samui Announces Bespoke Group Retreats in 2022 Tailored to Feel Life’s Potential

Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary & Holistic Spa is set to host a series of retreats scheduled to take place this autumn. Each retreat will be guided by distinct wellness professionals and has been developed collaboratively with retreat leaders who hold a deep appreciation for Kamalaya’s philosophy of holistic wellness, combining life-enriching insights with bespoke therapies.

While the focus at the legendary wellness retreat is on personalised wellness, Kamalaya retreats are intimate, limited to a maximum of 12 participants, and led by internationally renowned practitioners. Each retreat offers the perfect setting in nature where guests can explore particular topics in greater depth and benefit from the support network of a group of like-minded individuals.

The two group retreats are ideal for guests seeking personalised support and expert guidance within a nurturing setting. Dates have been announced for two group retreats in September and October:

‘There is a special energy that arises out of doing something with others and this dynamic life force will be harnessed through our series of retreats, each customised to enhance our guest’s wellbeing experience,’ said Karina Stewart, founder and Chief Wellness Officer of Kamalaya Koh Samui.
