Sleep deprivation is becoming increasingly problematic, which is why hotels, resorts and spas around the world have begun to create custom sleep packages for travelers who desperately need some quality shut-eye. From packages that involve a medical component to rooms that contain special sleep-inducing facilities, the ultimate goal is to help you to maintain beneficial sleep patterns, significantly improving your quality of life in the long term.
Kamalaya, Koh Samui, Thailand
Kamalaya, in stunning Koh Samui, offers a fantastic Sleep Enhancement Wellness Program to their guests, aiming to re-establish healthy sleep patterns while addressing any sleep issues and imbalances. Their treatments and therapies incorporate everything from Chinese herbal medicine to massage therapy to preventative programs to acupuncture. Guests are also encouraged to make use of the plunge pools, steam cavern and fitness center, and enjoy complimentary access to the wide range of scheduled daily holistic fitness activities. The sleep package can be booked as a stand-alone, or it can also be incorporated into a 5, 7 or 9 night stay, the latter of which is usually the most popular option after guests first witness the spectacular natural beauty of Koh Samui.

There are many studies that have proven a connection between poor sleep and a variety of health issues, including high blood pressure, depression, weight gain and diabetes. It has also been shown that an adequate amount of sleep will not only improve alertness and productivity, but also memory and overall mood. If you frequently suffer from insomnia, or are eager to develop healthier sleeping patterns, then a sleep vacation may be just what you need.
