This is a place where you feel like home, but in the middle of the the whole day you are in focus. Everything - the nature, the drinks, and food, and the the people who are surrounding you - helps you to relax and change your mentality. Thank you 1x more for the comfortable relaxation.

I can't say enough about how much I loved Bethsaida Hermitage! Set in a lovely beach paradise, Bethsaida is a perfect place to go for ayurvedic healing. I spent two weeks there and received fantastic care from my amazing massage therapists Arun and Alex. Dr. Shayinam set me on a detox regimen that was very effective. Every person working at... More

Naturally made private beach in a state where private beaches seems non existant. Perfect environment, very well kept. Perfect place for ayurveda treatments, except if you want to go for some hardcore ayurveda programs. This is a perfect place to retreat, relax, rejuvenate according to basics if ayurveda. Serious ayurveda medical treatments probably are to be taken in other, not... More

The resort is on top of a secluded cliff with two quiet and beautiful private beaches (with lifeguard), with also two swimming pools overlooking the sea. The splendid location, its luxuriant, enormous garden, and pampering services offered by the ayurvedic clinic of the hotel are matched only by the kindness of the staff. Exquisite food is available almost all day... More
