  Kamalaya: Best Complementary & Alternative Medicine Wellness Centre: Crystal Awards Asia Pacific  

Kamalaya Koh Samui voted 'Best Complementary & Alternative Medicine Wellness Centre'

Koh Samui, Thailand… Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary & Holistic Spa was named Best Complementary & Alternative Medicine Wellness Centre last week in the sixth annual Crystal Awards Asia Pacific 2009.

The Crystal Awards, organised by Global Ratings & Awards Solutions, employ a collective voice of leaders in the spa and wellness industry to salute the best in the Asia Pacific region. Awarding brands and properties in various categories, they endorse the contributions each makes to enhance the industry while exerting an overall definition for the future direction of the sector.

“The awards stand apart from the rest for our impartiality in recognizing and honouring those who set the standards across the industry,” said Crystal Awards Chairman Michael Loh. “Winners will be celebrated and relished as standard bearers for the industry as worthy models to follow.”

The Crystal Awards judging process is rigorous, featuring the evaluation and scoring of submissions by a panel of industry judges, a secret shopping audit, and votes from the readers of Spa Asia magazine. Kamalaya last year received the Crystal Award for Best Wellness Retreat. This year, Kamalaya was a finalist in both the Best Destination Spa and Best Wellness Retreat categories, as well as the winner of the Best Complementary & Alternative Medicine Wellness Centre award.

This Crystal Award was Kamalaya’s third honour in three months. In October, Kamalaya took home six prizes in the SpaFinder Readers’ Choice Award competition, which named the resort Favorite Spa in Asia and Favorite Spa in Thailand, and 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.  In November, the Asia Spa Awards named Kamalaya co-founder Karina Stewart Spa Personality of the Year.

“All of us are so grateful for the support and recognition that Kamalaya has received this year,” Karina said. “The reality of Kamalaya as an atmosphere in which life transformation happens is already so far beyond what (her husband) John and I ever dreamed.”
