Karina Stewart named ‘Spa Personality of the Year’ at the AsiaSpa Awards 2009

Koh Samui, Thailand…Karina Stewart, co-founder of Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary and Holistic Spa, was named ‘Spa Personality of the Year’ last night at the AsiaSpa Awards 2009. The awards were announced at AsiaSpa magazine’s awards ceremony, held in Hong Kong’s Armani Bar.    

Kamalaya was one of eight nominees in the category, which included distinguished destinations from Asia and Australia. Kamalaya was also nominated in categories for Spa Retreat of the Year, Spa Therapist Team of the Year, and Spa Cuisine of the Year. A panel of 27 independent judges from across the Asia region were charged with short-listing nominations and selecting the ultimate winners across 27 categories, digging deep to find the most original places to relax, heal and grow.  

‘I feel deeply honoured, humble and grateful,’ said Karina, a doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine who is also Kamalaya’s Brand / Concept Director.  ‘The industry is in such a phase of growth and development, and there are so many people right now who are making huge contributions.’
‘It’s lovely to receive this award, and I do so knowing it’s very much due to the unfailing support of my communications team,’ she continued. “It’s also a testament to the strong commitment the entire Kamalaya family makes each day to helping our guests have the best and most beneficial experience possible, and to our holistic approach toward health and wellbeing.”  

The AsiaSpa Awards were created in 2005 to give recognition and reward to the region’s best in terms of innovation and quality. Setting a great benchmark for spas in the region as well as around the world, they put the spotlight on Asia's best spas.  

This year’s awards ceremony comes just a month after Kamalaya won the coveted Crystal Award for Favorite Spa in Asia in the SpaFinder Readers’ Choice Awards. These awards also named Kamalaya Favorite Spa in Thailand, as well as one of the top ten spas in the world in each of the Best for Mind-Body-Spirit, Best Medical Program, Best for Weight Loss and Best for Yoga categories.
