Stay

Kamalaya Koh SamuiKoh Samui, Thailand

When modern-day life is getting you down, it's time to retreat. At Kamalaya Koh Samui, a luxury spa retreat on the popular Thai island, take a step back, indulge in holistic healing treatments and come out the other side feeling like a new you.

Kamalaya has a number of programs designed to help overcome stress and burnout, but we love the sound of Asian Bliss – when in Rome, after all. For between five and 10 nights, turn off your gadgets then exercise, eat well and be nurtured by treatments taking in Chinese Traditional Medicine, Ayurvedic practice and traditional Thai therapies.

Each day there's a schedule of complimentary yoga, pilates and tai chi classes, plus there's a fitness centre, swimming pool and steam cavern if you want to stretch out on your own.

Feel like you've got stress levels under control? There's a whole raft of wellness programs including detox, weight-loss, exercise and yoga programs. As far as the resort goes, the entry-level rooms are cosy and chic and surrounded by trees; others overlook the ocean, some have private plunge pools or there's the opportunity to book a beachfront villa. Just those views are likely to make knotted muscles unwind.
