I went to this retreat last week. I have never been to a yoga retreat so I thought this would be a perfect start, considering it's in the Bahamas. There were several things that threw me off (I'll list the positives later to be fair): 1. Meals are provided twice, daily: 9:45 a.m. and 5:45 p.m. there are no snacks/in-betweens.... More

I was travelling to the Sivananda ashram on the Bahamas by myself in July 2015 and I loved it!!! The beach is perfect. The vegan Food delicious (I did not know that vegan could be that tasty and filling :-) ). The little huts cute and well kept and I enjoyed doing the yoga classes in the morning and afternoon....

A superb location and ideal proposition for a healthy vacation that gets away from it all. Four hours of yoga a day and then the rest of the time on the beach and reading. The food is well done (relative to my expectations for and inexperience with vegetarian food) although note that it is heavy on carbs and so not... More

It wasn't them, it was me. My review would repeat most of the misgivings in the "average" reviews. I wasn't able to cope with only two meals a day and, most of all, only having tap water from a single community faucet. I found the yoga classes to be really hit or miss on quality, and short on soulfulness. The... More

I just love going to the Ashram. What a wonderful relaxing place to go. Great yoga, lovely beach, wonderful food. The rooms are simple but clean and with that lovely atlantic wind there's just nothing like it. Came back feeling amazing. I will be returning very soon, it's really worth it.

I have stayed at this 3 times since 2009 and it just gets better and better each time. I usually go in August because it is not busy. The daily routine is rigorous but very invigorating. The meals are the best vegetarian food i have had. All ingredients are fresh and prepared with care. The rooms are small but air... More

It is a nice place for peace and quiet, to find yourself. Welcome by reception was very helpful; everything well coordinated. Members of staff are very accommodating... We had the best type of room: ocean view, comfortable beds, plenty of space, balcony, normal bathroom, kitchenette. The yoga and meditation programs are lead by very enthusiastic yogis; I'm a beginner and... More

Well, you can't beat the value of this lovely garden spot that shares a beach, but not an attitude, with the massive Atlantis resort. The deluxe beachfront rooms have private balconies that overlook the powder-sand beach with that crystal-clear Bahamas water. The rooms, which can only be booked if you have at least two people, also have private bath and... More

This place is like paradise! I did my yoga teacher's training in the Sivananda ashram in India and am familiar with the schedule of the ashram. I went during the busy time of the year and thus the place was totally packed!!! I believe the food quality suffered a lil because of that. Other than that, everything about this place... More

Just returned from 7 days at the Sivananda Yoga Ashram and can honestly say it was a wonderful experience all around. As a single late 50s lady and newbie to yoga, the staff and other guests were very cordial, friendly and helpful. The Ashram is located on a pristine stretch of beach with the most crystalline turquoise water and soft... More
