AsiaSpa Award “Spa Cuisine of the Year”

At the 12th annual AsiaSpa Awards in Hong Kong on Wednesday 16th November Kamalaya was awarded “Spa Cuisine of the Year”. Shortlisted alongside five other reputable properties from India and Southeast Asia, Kamalaya is honoured to receive this accolade for their Inspired Healthy Cuisine which is an integral part of Kamalaya’s holistic wellness concept. Combining fundamental principles of ancient Asian healing traditions with current research, Kamalaya co-founder Karina Stewart and team of chefs have created a colourful menu that is both healing and delicious.

“Every dish is flavoured with the skill and passion of our kitchen hosts, and we feel truly grateful to see their daily dedication recognised”, says Stewart, who holds a Master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine and has more than 15 years experience in functional nutrition and healing.

“At Kamalaya, we view food as medicine and hope our guests feel inspired to use this powerful healing tool and continue to eat healthy when they return home”.

AsiaSpa is Asia’s premier spa and wellbeing magazine, and with the awards, they are setting a benchmark for spas in the region and around the world.

Spafinder Wellness Travel Awards

On 9th November in London, Kamalaya was selected as a multiple winner at the 2016 Spafinder Wellness 365™ Travel Awards including the Crystal Award “Best in Asia” as well as its fifth Country Award “Best in Thailand”.

Crystal Awards are given to the top spas, resorts and retreats on six continents. Each year, Spafinder also gives Category Awards to the worldwide top ten properties that offer exceptional wellness experiences in each of the 20 categories.

With a total of nine Category Awards Kamalaya reached this year’s highest score within the group of category winners and was chosen as among the Best for Nutrition & Healthy Cuisine, Best Eco-friendly & Sustainable Property, Best for Going Solo, Best for Mind & Spirit, Best for the “Wow” Factor, Best for Yoga, Best Hidden Gem, Best Ahead-of-the-Curve Innovation and Best Weight Loss Program. From a shortlist selected by a panel of 39 wellness travel editors and industry experts, over 130,000 consumers and travel agents voted for their favourites.

Flavourful and warming, Kamalaya’s Mung Bean Risotto is one of the most popular dishes on our Detox Menu. Green mung beans are rich in complete plant protein, fiber, antioxidants and phytonutrients. A cup of coconut milk gives the risotto its creamy texture and slight natural sweetness, and also helps to lower cholesterol levels and improve blood pressure.
