Recently stayed, and while yoga with Mara was good, I wouldn't describe it as 'luxury'. I know that as an Eco- lodge there are considerations around power and water but they don't tell you that 'share bathroom' means one toilet and one shower for up to 10 guests. There were 4 others when I was there. For me the food... More

If you are wanting to relax and escape the city life, practice yoga and meditation with two of the most beautiful and experienced teachers you could hope for... in the depths of the rainforest but still only a stones throw from the beach and reef look no further than Prema Shanti. I couldn't recommend this place more highly to recharge... More

My mum and I stayed at Prema Shanti for 5 nights in late June. I have always wanted to visit the daintree and have been meaning to get into doing more yoga and start meditating so this seemed a good way to do all of that in one hit. Mara and Janardhan were very welcoming hosts, they were able to... More

Overall, this was a very lovely place to stay. The hosts were very kind, sweet and helpful. The vegetarian food was simple, healthful. The yoga was not too intense and meditation was a wonderful way to start the day. Wildlife everywhere. Great, peaceful home-base for exploring this area of Australia. My only two criticisms; 1) after dinner and lights out... More

This place reminds me of the energy that I want to bring to my daily life - it is full of peace, spirituality, health and beauty. Mara and Janardhan are very welcoming and caring people. I recommend a visit. Diana

Wasn't sure what to expect as I've never done a yoga and meditation retreat. After three days was sad to leave the temple. Amazing people, magical atmosphere and good old fashioned hospitality. Be open and you'll get what you came for. Would go back in a heartbeat.

I just led a group of students to 6 day retreat at Prema Shanti. From the moment we arrived we were all captivated by the peaceful surroundings and the cozy, laid back setting. The facilitators Mara and Janardhan are kind and gracious hosts and we instantly felt at home. The experience was perfect for our group of novices. Morning meditation... More
