I had a wonderful time at Kare, everybody was really friendly, helpful and the food was delicious. The iyengar yoga in the morning, treatments and relaxing yoga in the afternoon plus interesting lectures and talks made this a perfect stay. The landscape is calm and inspiring. I felt well taken care of. It was my first detox and the result... More

KARE is a gem. It's unique and transformative -- of body, mind and spirit. It's not a big resort -- with homogenized decor and "out of the box" gloss. It's a retreat centre focused on ayurvedic healing. The staff here have emotional intelligence, excellent skills, and thoroughly professional training. After ten days of two fabulous (and varied) massages daily, and... More

KARE is the only relatively traditional ayurvedic center in the vicinity of Pune, and they take full advantage of that by charging prices that are unreasonable for a place like this in India. Most of their clientele are non Indians, hence they get away with it. Most firangs find it convenient to arrive here from Bombay or Pun airport. And... More

I came to KARE in late July in order to do a 14 day cleanse (panchkarma). All of the staff here made my stay very pleasant and were warm and friendly, with the practitioners being helpful and experienced. The Kalmadi family who own and run the retreat were particularly generous to me and I really appreciated their thoughtfulness. The location... More

KARE situated on a mountain slope facing the Tata Hydro electric reservoir, amidst dense forests is a sight to see by itself. All around, the peaks invite you and it is difficult to resist this mountain call. And the sparkling water in front, reflecting the morning and evening sun takes you to a different world. And this is the place... More

I came to KARE in order to find a quiet and peaceful place to re-charge my batteries, get some good "pampering" treatments and do Yoga at the same time. The main reason why I chose KARE was the close distance to Mumbai and the very positive reviews I read on TripAdvisor. But my overall experience was rather average. You can... More

We arrived at KARE in October, when orange oasis flowers bloom at the end of the monsoon season. We traveled with with friends who raved about their visit last year and promised we would love it, too. They were right! The beautiful mountains and lake made this tranquil setting a nurturing place to plunge into the healing world of Ayurvedic... More

We spent a quality time at Kare Mulshi, its been a wonderful experience in a lot of ways, the people around here know their Job and do it with a great positive zeal. I would recommend this to all, specially the young people to help them achieve a greater understanding of their body improve health and lifestyle.
