Cheap Tickets to Bangkok For a Total Wellness Package

For some of you wellness might mean a couple of cheap flights to Bangkok and a lot of cheap sex and booze in the wet and humid Patpong, but trust me when I tell you that it’s not gonna last. Remember the blog I wrote about last week, all expats say it doesn’t last. In the end it only makes you feel sadder and lonelier.

So what’s one to do when he/she feels like they’re in a rut, at the end of the line, burnt out at work and at home? I have your answer. And yes, it begins with a cheap flight to Bangkok but has nothing to do with cheap sex and drugs.Actually the Thai’s have figured out an alternative way to get over the hump and  jump start your batteries.

And all you have to do is book a cheap flight to bangkok and then hop on a commuter flight to Koh Samui, where they have a prototype for the future of ‘wellness.’ And here it is:

A holistic retreat that caters to all of us in need of rest, in need of worrying less, in need of peace. And they do this by combining age-old disciplines with science, art and film screenings.

John Stewart, the founder, is a yogi who spent may years living at an ashram at the foot of the Himalayas where he  and his friends spent seven years hauling rocks to build plots of land for vegetable gardens and fruit orchards on reclaimed riverbed. Those experiences in India, where Stewart also met his wife and business partner, Karina, gave him the idea to start the Kamalaya Wellness Retreat and Holistic Spa on Koh Samui.

Kamalaya’s design is part earthy, part paradise.

Set among the boulders and palm trees of the sparsely inhabited southeast corner of the Thai island, Kamalaya’s construction was an undertaking that challenged even Stewart’s previous endeavors at the ashram. His aim was to merge the villa into the island’s natural beauty.

In one villa, for example, an enormous boulder is crouched behind the bed and merged with the wall. In the semi-al fresco bathroom, hemmed in by brick walls like the skeletons of Thai temple ruins, the shower nozzle gushed from inside a tree trunk while flowers and fronds sprouted from below. The alcoves look like a hybrid of a temple roof and a silhouetted tree.

This motif, partly earthy, partly otherworldly, is everywhere in Kamalaya.

The menus are made from mulberry bark, fish traps illuminate the restaurant at night, everything is made to reflect nature.

‘I’ve regained my appetite to compete’

Karina Stewart is the program director. As an undergraduate of Princeton University in the United States, she majored in cultural anthropology and minored in religious studies, specializing in Indian faiths. Then she met a Taoist master in Seattle which inspired her to learn acupuncture and do another degree in traditional Chinese medicine.

Her creation of nine core programs provided the anatomy for the sanctuary’s success: a 96-percent occupancy rate during the recent high season.

The detox, weight loss and rejuvenation programs are all popular, but what visitors come looking for a most is calm in a sea of stress. How easy is it to just jump on a flight to Bangkok and destress?

There’s the seven-day “Stress and Burnout Program,” which starts from 108,000 baht and is one of the most popular programs.

Taking control over your life

Much of the stress that grinds people down is self-created, says Rajesh Ramani, a life coach and meditation teacher.

Kamalaya’s overnight options range from hillside suites to two-bedroom beach front pool villas. And you’ll feel your stress melt away, seriously just check out our cheap tickets to bangkok!

The former monk who worked with the poorest of the poor in rural India for many years, gives workshops at Kamalaya and he pinpoints the underlying causes of stress and the ruptures in relationships from a layman’s perspective. And a lot of it has to do with unplugging from the world outside ourselves.

His workshops and consultations are devoted to giving people back a sense of control over their lives. Self-empowerment is the bone marrow of all the different programs at Kamalaya and why so many people are booking their their tickets to Bangkok. Also the prices are great.

Overall, the Kamalaya concept is vast and far-reaching, combining the age-old disciplines of yoga, tai chi and meditation, along with an art gallery, library and film screenings, juxtaposed against all the latest breakthroughs in science, nutrition and bio impedance analysis, that it defies any attempts to sum it up it in slogan-sized summaries or full-length features.
