Wellbeing Sabbatical Program

Since opening in 2005, Kamalaya has been a popular choice for long-staying guests seeking a safe haven to relax, renew, restore and rejuvenate. However, recent years have seen a significant increase in demand from those wishing to experience a longer holistic immersion, potentially to combine the pursuit of their personal wellness goals with specific creative, or other endeavours in an extraordinarily inspiring environment.

Kamalaya’s Wellbeing Sabbatical Program has been specifically designed to support individuals in need of deeper, more restorative retreat time to counteract the stresses of contemporary lifestyles, such as exhaustion and even adrenal burnout. At the same time, the program provides the optimal setting for guests in search of creative inspiration, a fresh and clear perspective on life and freedom far away from the deadlines and distractions of everyday life. The program’s efficacy is further enhanced by the serene and stunning natural environment at Kamalaya; the power of nature nourishing and nurturing guests during their journey of discovery and healing on every level.

Upon arrival, your Wellbeing Sabbatical begins with a personal consultation with one of our health practitioners. This includes Body Bio-Impedance Analysis to determine your health and wellness needs which allows your program to be tailored for maximum effect and comfort. The program includes a synergy of restorative and revitalising treatments such as Royal Ayurvedic Massage, Shirodhara, Vital Essence Oil Massage, Tension Relief Massage and other healing modalities designed to release physical and mental tension and restore balance and relaxation. Your wellbeing journey continues with a Physiotherapy appointment to assess any postural or structural issues, nutritional guidance, weekly Naturopathic consultations, plus sessions with our Life Enhancement Mentors to explore stress management, meditation, Pranayama breathing exercises, or to discuss any life goals you may wish to achieve.

Should they be required, additional medical tests are available following your consultation (extra charges apply).  This program is available to guests staying a minimum of 21 nights at Kamalaya.

*Please note that Wi-Fi is available in guest rooms and in Kamalaya’s library. However, to ensure that other guests are able to disconnect from the outside world and fully benefit from the effectiveness of their chosen wellness programs, public areas at Kamalaya remain subject to our Digital Detox policy where mobile phones, laptops and other devices may not be used. A journal will be provided for guests to jot down any flashes of inspiration that manifest whilst relaxing on the beach, dining in our restaurants, or strolling around our expansive tropical gardens.
