The Kamalaya Koh Samui wellness sanctuary is cultivating closer ties with the Australasia travel sector securing a regional membership with Virtuoso’s network of agencies and a scheduled visit to Australia by Kamalaya General Manager, Pierre Lang.
As a Regional Preferred Partner, Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary will provide Virtuoso’s network of Australian and New Zealand agencies with bespoke and unique opportunities and deliver exclusive experiences for Virtuoso customers. In addition to receiving value-added benefits such as complimentary breakfast, Wi-Fi and room upgrades, guests who book through a Virtuoso agent will be invited to a personalised wellness and goal-setting consultation with a Kamalaya naturopath to discuss their wellness concerns and specific objectives they have ahead of their stay.
“We warmly welcome Kamalaya as a Regional Preferred Partner of Virtuoso,” said Fiona Dalton, Virtuoso General Manager, Australia and New Zealand.
“Thailand’s multi-award-winning property is a perfect fit, delivering a world-leading spa and wellness property to our portfolio of 2,200 leading hotels, tour operators and cruise lines,” Dalton said.
