Kamalaya Testimonials

Hi Josie,

I enjoyed the stay at Kamalaya and had a good time. Indeed it is a different kind of experience. Must also say it’s well suited for singles and single female traveller. Nice resort and quiet. No noisy crowds or kids running around. Very chill indeed. 

Signing up a package makes life easy especially for people like me who have a hard time planning. Flip side is it clashes with some of the free activities. Can’t have it all I guess!

The detox menu selection was harder than I expected. The food tasted good but so little one can  eat! This part I did regret at some point and had cravings for carbs and meat. But that said, I did feel good after the program.

All in, I am very happy with the trip. Happy with the resort and it remains on my ‘go back’ list. 


Hi Mei Yun

Thank you for the note. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Kamalaya and already hoped to go back again in future. Service was personable and travel did not take long.

As it was our first trip there, it could be that we did not know what to expect, but I thought it would be helpful if we know the schedule of our activities there earlier so some adjustments and re-scheduling could be done.

The promptness and friendly service by Lightfoot and yourself added to the enjoyable experience.

Thank you :)


Hi Mei Yun,

Wow what a fab place Kamalaya is, I just loved my few days there (very jealous of Camilla still there!).
To be honest there isn’t much I would change. The transfers to and from the airport were on time and good. It was great to be upgraded into where we were as those rooms seemed to be really well located, had good space with a lovely balcony over looking a bit of the sea.

I would go back instantly and would highly recommend it to anyone who was a) looking to just switch off and detox or b) even just to get away and have a quiet weekend away with lovely treatments and yummy food.

The only slightly annoying thing for me was we had to pay for internet in our room. I understand that you are supposed to switch off from the outside world etc.. but I had to be in contact daily with the children to check in as they were ill so it was a bit annoying that I had to pay for that service. Saying that it wasn’t very expensive but i was just quite surprised that the rooms weren’t already set up with internet on tap.

I think its a great place and loved every moment of my short stay there. Hopefully I can go back again soon!!
Thanks for all your help Mei Yun.
