AN OASIS OF CALM
Welcome to Samadhi.
We are a growing hospitality and restaurant group offering unique holiday and dining experiences in Asia, delivered through our signature Samadhi Experience.
"The Samadhi Experience"
Translated from Sanskrit, 'Samadhi' is the highest stage in meditation, the moment when a state of mind is achieved and one experiences a fusion with the divine universe. Our wish is to deliver a transcendent experience where stresses and anxieties of daily life are surrendered at the door and our guests transition to an intensely relaxed state of mind, in what we call 'Samadhi Experience'.
Our luxury resorts and villas are typically small, the antithesis of large chains, where the Samadhi Experience can be enjoyed in an intensely personal way. We find ourselves in special and unexpected locations, whether far-flung or in the heart of the city, we carve our own special oasis of calm.
Each of our properties, be it a beach resort or a restaurant hidden in the jungle, is unique in itself and true to its sense of place. Our philosophy is also deeply rooted in our respect of our immediate environment: the history of a building, the nature around or its people.
Luxury to us does not merely mean creature comforts, thoughtful service, elegant details and beautiful destinations, but also the luxury of space, time and the freedom to truly immerse in one's sense of being, advocating a 'luxe for less' philosophy.
Regardless of trends, our belief is to share what we ourselves enjoy, with like-minded people.
Founded and owned by Federico Asaro, Samadhi is a culmination of his extensive cultural, culinary and spiritual travels throughout Asia with his wife, Maple. Enchanted by Indochina, especially the time he spent with the hill tribes that populate the Mekong delta, he returned time and time again with a head full of recipes, luggage stuffed with antiques and a heart bursting with inspiration. He opened Tamarind Hill in a leafy jungle enclave in Kuala Lumpur, marking the beginning of Samadhi.
Today, Samadhi has several resorts, villas and restaurants in Asia, and is a proud Asian brand with a solid track record and developmental potential.
"It has never been my aim to open as many hotels and as quickly as possible. A Samadhi property in the making takes years to discover, months to conceptualize, and many more to build. I have always been in search of something special, something so unique that you have to journey to reach. Whether it's a long boat ride to get to or a long walkway to stroll, a Samadhi property is a retreat, and when you arrive, you know you have reached somewhere extraordinary."
