A word from the founders...

“Lime Wood’s Herb House Spa and Kamalaya both share a true appreciation and love for nature and natural wellbeing. Just as Kamalaya’s lush coastal land Lime Wood’s ancient forest surroundings and peaceful gardens provide a vital connection with nature, a powerful healing source that many people are missing in their lives. With excellent hospitality standards and passion for holistic and authentic wellness, we feel that Herb House guests will appreciate having access to the expertise contributed by our Kamalaya team.”
– Karina Stewart, Kamalaya Co-founder, Brand & Concept Director

“Having visited many spas and wellness destinations around the world I can hand on heart say that nowhere quite revives and resets me like Kamalaya. With over 40 years of combined experience, devoted to a life of spiritual and healing studies and traditions, John and Karina have combined holistic medicine and complementary therapies from Eastern and Western traditions to take a balanced approach to achieving your best physical, emotional and spiritual well-being, and all on the stunning lush coastline of Koh Samui. We could all do with a little more time for ourselves these days, to genuinely and deeply relax, re-charge and re-energise, and I can think of no better guides than John and Karina. So this May, I have invited them and their top team to the New Forest so that you can get a taste of and benefit from a little bit of Kamalaya’s magic without the jet lag!”
– Robin Hutson, Chairman & CEO of Lime Wood and THE PIG hotels
