All guru are experiences, passion and you can learn so much. Peaceful and you live very close to the nature which bring a wonderful environment to clear up your mind, learn... More

The place is in a nice setting, the food was good (although not enough) and it was quite cheap ($90 for the weekend in a dorm room). However there was just a very unfriendly vibe throughout our whole stay. It felt like a very closed community, that was basically welcoming new comers for the money. I was 5 months pregnant... More

I'm not a fan of writing bad reviews but I have to concur with the last reviewer. Beyond disappointing. The fees are out of control. For dorm or share type room you're paying top dollar. The food is minimal/mediocre at best and there is not much thought or creativity in it. The karma yoga thing has become tedious. Mostly -... More

This place is a rip off I was charged $150 per day for a room with no toilet or ensuite. I got food poisoning on the eggplant curry that was served for lunch then served again the next day after it had been reheated. Which for me meant two nights of vomiting and diarrhea. I paid $1500 for this .... More

Was really uncomfortable and the food was average. I had a really creepy feeling as we drove up the isolated dirt road. We had to do "karma yoga" which mean housekeeping, cleaning toilets and sweeping.

A yoga ashram, a retreat centre and a yoga school all in one... this place is hard to put into words! Spending time here even for a few days nourishes the body, mind and soul. Fantastic vegetarian food, surrounded by nature, and a variety of yoga and meditation classes with internationally renowned teachers. Peace, quiet and time to connect with... More

Hidden up in the valley along a dirt road one then enters a near picture perfect location where the weather changes but the winds often miss. Stayed here in May/June 2013 and the weather was changeable - warm, cool, wet and dry. The relaxing and peaceful environment allows the inner self to become alive and experience the senses that come... More

Very nice relaxed place, great to come for a personal retreat for a weekend or more, I felt that I got more out of it by staying longer (almost two weeks!) and got to know the place and the people. Can feel a bit strange at first as people wear different colours depending on their level in the ashram and... More

I have been to the Ashram 5 or so times over the last 10 years. It never fails to soothe and relax the body and still the mind. The food is vegetarian and excellent. Room facilities are simple but adequate. The location is lovely and the entire centre generally has a peaceful, tranquil feel to it. I cannot wait to... More

I have traveled to Mangrove on a couple of occasions, a couple of times for a personal retreat, where I was able to enjoy the amazing bush, delicious and nourishing fooding, plentiful yoga classes and general Ashram vibe whilst relaxing deeply and enjoying some time apart. I have recently taken my daughter to the Family Yoga week and she loved... More
