Australia’s premier travel and lifestyle magazine, which is exclusively dedicated to luxury travel, annually asks its readers to nominate outstanding luxury travel experiences in Australia and around the world. This includes hotels, resorts, spas, airlines, cruise ships as well as travel agencies, tour operators and destinations. Luxury Travel Magazine’s Gold List is one of the most comprehensive luxury travel surveys undertaken in Australia and among the country’s leading travel awards.
John Stewart, co-founder of Kamalaya commented, “We feel especially honoured to receive this award as we know that our Australian guests are very health conscious and have high expectations in terms of holistic wellness. We are delighted to see the appreciation from our visitors and hope to see more Australians experiencing Kamalaya.”
The award follows a number of successful wins for Kamalaya including being awarded “Best Destination Spa” at the prestigious London CondéNast Traveller Spa Awards in February this year, “Spa of the Year” at the 2015 Asia Spa Awards and “Best in Thailand” at the 2015 SpaFinder Wellness Travel Country Awards.
