I was impressed by the photos on the website...the photos and the reviews made this place seem to good to be true. And yet my expectations were exceeded in every way! I actually went in April 2013, and still keep in touch with all of the people who were there that week. We have a Facebook group, and multiple people... More

I was here for a yoga teaching course. Couldn't have asked for more...staff, service, location...everything was fantastic. The food was absolutely fabulous. Fresh fruit every morning with either homemade yogurt or fresh coconut milk. The chefs went out of the way to accommodate everyone's dietary needs. I love this place and would definitely go back.

When my shuttle turned into Anamaya resort, and I first saw the view of this place, I was in awe. I couldn't believe I would be staying at such a beautiful place for the next seven days of my yoga retreat. Every corner of this resort is well thought-out and beautifully designed. As soon as I entered this resort, I... More

I stayed in the Temple room for a week. It was an amazing week. The food was fantastic and everything was made by the chefs (many ingredients grown on their property). The grounds are beautiful and well kept. The staff went out of their way to meet any request made and made it seem like anything is easy to accommodate.... More

The reviews speak for themselves but the Yoga Retreat experience at Anamaya is hard to describe with words and pictures. You just have to experience it for yourself to understand what it means. Rooms: I stayed in PRANA, amazing room, cozy with a gorgeous ocean view, a rocking chair and a hammock on my balcony. Would be hard to leave... More

I went to an Anamaya Yoga retreat in November of 2013, by myself. It's not so easy to describe how wonderful and transformative this place is. There were 30 of us from all across the world. Not many places you can stay and enter as 30 strangers and leave a week later as family. The property, location, staff, food, yoga... More

What a delightful, charming place. The view, with an infinity pool perched on a cliff overlooking the ocean, will take your breath away. For this mostly-vegetarian, the meals were a treat - fresh, delicious, beautiful to look at, plentiful. Staff was friendly and accomodating. I thoroughly enjoyed the twice-daily yoga classes with guest teacher April, with howler monkeys and iguanas... More
