When we watched the sun rising on top of the hill... It was truly a magic moment.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Apart from the nice morning hikes, the retreat offers a gret opportunity to get some tips and hints for yoga practice , as it offers variety of workshops, but alternatively you can also just chill in the wonderful meditation garden or swim in the pool. The place is truly wonderful - great for everyone who loves nature and likes to try some fantastic vegan food.

Absolutely, most of the ingredients of our meals were coming from local sources - and prepared by an awesome local cook as well.

It was a very nice week, fully recharging. The staff is absolutely wonderful, they truly take care of the people to make sure everyone gets the support they need to enjoy their retreat.

review 16 Mar 2019

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Hard to decide....the location, the yoga or the food. Actually it was the other people who made it a great week, staff and customers alike.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Youíll only need casual clothing, something loose for yoga and walking boots for hikes. If youíre not already vegan, be prepared for surprisingly tasty food.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Definitely. Care is taken to avoid plastics, and recycle and compost where possible. Food is local and organic and all paid staff are local.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

The location is so perfect I would have forgiven them if the yoga hadnít been good, but it was excellent, especially the meditation. Altogether excellent value.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

I loved the food and the yoga classes. The normall meditation classes were a bit much for me. I did loved the walking meditation!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Book in a season when there are not that muh mosquitos. I had more then 70 bites and had to put on a lot of spray. The weather was perfect tho.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

It helps the farmers with producing more foods on the land.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

I really enjoyed it. Except the part with taking all the cash with me during travels.. And the meditation classes were quite long for a beginner.

review 4 Oct 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

There are two things that really stick in my mind; when I read one of the books on the coffee table and realised something fundamental about myself, and when Namit was correcting my posture and I listened (perhaps for the first time in my yoga practice) to exactly what he was saying and made the changes / activated the muscles/ sucked in my tummy, it's amazing how much of a difference this made to my practice.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Prepare to open your mind......and your hips.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The retreat really felt part of the community, in terms of connecting with the local farmers and businesses and the people were very respectful of their surroundings.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

It was a truly wonderful experience. We didn't have the best weather for the week but it really didn't matter as the staff just created more workshops for us and I think we benefited more from that. Plus that final day beside the pool was heavenly when we got it.
