Dotted with gem colored lanterns and day beds, fringed by palm trees and liberal use of bamboo, the resort exudes Asian chic.

“I grew up in an Italian city by the ocean. I remember sitting on the jetty, just watching the happenings of the sea. And then my Uncle from Sicily took me snorkeling once and my world opened up.
I later moved to Malaysia and fell in love with Asia too. At Samadhi properties we care fiercely about the environment and try to build using natural materials wherever possible, working closely with the local ‘Orang Asli’ for materials such as bamboo and thatched roofs.
In Sanskrit, Samadhi is the highest state of meditation - the moment when the mind achieves stillness and a state of meditative consciousness.
Samadhi Retreats aim to deliver a transcendent experience, where the anxieties of daily life are surrendered at our doors and guests transition to a relaxed state of mind. Located in destinations that offer unique choices, each retreat takes on the character of its natural surroundings and serves as a form of escape for the urban traveller.
All our properties have long walkways, it’s a journey. You leave the city behind and immerse yourself in the experience you’re about to have. I call it the Dream State.”
