Visit Anamayas' website and you'll get a tenth of an inkling of how beautiful this resort is. Google Anamaya Resort, and you'll see photos of Anamaya alumni whose lives have been changed by it - it's a soulful experience. Everyone on the staff, from housekeeping to the owner, is personable, welcoming, caring, and available. Those on staff with specialty skills... More

This summer I spent a total of 9 weeks at Anamaya taking two teacher trainings with a retreat sandwiched in the middle. Bottom-line, Anamaya is like a home to me, and the staff and owners, well, they are family. Everyone is well aware of the amazing views, food, and gorgeous accommodations, but what they may not be aware of is... More

I chose Anamaya for a yoga retreat after a tough start to the year and it has been without a doubt the most wonderful experience of my life. It is such a healing and welcoming place that myself and the people I was with didn't want to leave. The food was delicious, the staff were lovely, the yoga teacher Emily... More

Spent a week at Anamaya doing some yoga and surfing. I had some serious reservations and was skeptical of the glowing reviews on trip advisor. Well I am now singing their praises. I typically don't write reviews but believe that anyone considering a yoga retreat should seriously consider ANAMAYA. The staff and the attention to the care and well being... More

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
