Kinnari Award

Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary & Holistic Spa Secures Top Kinnari Gold Award from Thailand Tourism Authority

Koh Samui, Thailand. Kamalaya Koh Samui is proud to receive the Kinnari Gold Award in the Wellness Retreat category at the 13th biannual Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Awards.

Held every two years and known officially as the Thailand Tourism Awards, or The Kinnari Awards, they serve as Thailand’s ‘Hallmark of Excellence’ – a symbol of assurance in the finest achievements, outstanding quality and reliability of tourism products and services.

Princess Ubol Ratana Rajakanya Sirivadhana Barnavadi, as Honorary President, presided over the 13th biannual Thailand Tourism Awards 2021, which took place online as a virtual ceremony via the Facebook fan pages of Thailand Tourism Awards and Amazing Thailand.

John and Karina Stewart, co-founders of Kamalaya Koh Samui commented, “As we prepare to mark the 16th anniversary of Kamalaya, we are honoured to receive this prestigious Kinnari Gold award from Tourism Authority of Thailand. Winning this award is a testament to our dedicated team who serve and inspire while nurturing our guests and showing them new ways to live.”

The Thailand Tourism Awards are a benchmark of quality with the objective to raise the standard of tourism in Thailand. They play an important role in the mechanism for the sustainable development of the Thai tourism industry.

Scooping the Kinnari Gold Award follows host of international accolades in recent months. Earlier this year, Kamalaya received the 2021 TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice Award which is given to hotels that consistently earn great reviews and are ranked within the top 10% of properties on TripAdvisor.

Most recently Kamalaya has won the award for Best Wellness Retreat of the Year from Destination Deluxe for the third year running, Best International Wellness Retreat by Australia’s Travel Play Live Magazine Reader’s Choice Awards 2021, and the Condé Nast Traveler Reader’s Choice Awards 2021 placed Kamalaya among the Top 40 Spa Resorts in the World.

These latest accolades follow on from Kamalaya’s success in 2020 when Kamalaya was revealed as Wellness Retreat of the year by Destination Deluxe. And at the 2020 World Spa & Wellness Awards – the first ever to be virtually – Kamalaya received for the third time the honour of being named ‘Worldwide Health & Wellness Destination of the Year’.

With lush tropical vegetation, cascading streams, 250 meters of idyllic private beach and a cave once used by Buddhist monks as a place of meditative retreat, Kamalaya’s nature and setting is an integral part of each guest’s experience.

Since opening in November 2005, Kamalaya has been offering enriching wellness programmes that combine healing therapies from east and west, in a breathtakingly beautiful environment.
