Thank you RL for a wonderful time. Inspiring and relaxing at the same time. It was so much better than I had preconceived beforehand. The lodges are so well appointed in order to make sure that no lodge overlooks another but close enough to give a sense of community. Inside the lodges look as if they were just built they... More

Ratna Ling is a life changing experience for peace, solitude, reflection and clearing the mind and body. If you get the chance of visiting this wonderland, don't hesitate. We'd love to return one day, and we hope you get the opportunity to share this beautiful place we've discovered. The cottages are lovely, the staff are wonderful. The vegetarian meals are... More

The environment was so beautiful and serene with old huge redwood trees that made me feel like is was walking on sacred ground. Deers and wild turkeys roamed around and the human presence didn't seem to scare or bother them. The cottage had a rustic look outside but the inside was spacious, modern, and elegantly decorated that i instantly felt... More

My partner and I booked a 2-night stay at Ratna Ling not knowing exactly what to expect. We were completely blown away by the beauty of the grounds, the views, and our cabin... as other reviews note, the cabins are very spacious, modern, and luxurious. The meals, included in the price, were really delicious with lots of vegan and gluten... More

I bought a Living Social deal for a cabin for two, all meals included, for November of 2011. The price was a great deal but I wasn't sure what to expect. This retreat center exceeded my wildest fantasies! The cabin was HUGE, sparkling and new. Gorgeous natural wood everywhere, soft linens, giant jacuzzi tub. The grounds of the retreat center... More

I just spent a few nice reflective days at Ratna Ling Retreat Center. If you or your clients are looking for a place to quietly plan business, goals and life Ratna Ling is a welcoming alternative to Hotels and Convention centers. It’s a perfect retreat for small businesses and groups. Forget the Red Bull and Wine this is all healthy... More

I booked a personal retreat at Ratna Ling after traveling for months, as a way to regroup before the holidays. A bit difficult to find, the place is a hidden jewel. Ratna Ling is a fully functioning residential community, with a publishing company on its grounds. However, the personal retreats are across the street in a separate area. All rooms... More

I found Ratna Ling to be beautiful, peaceful and mystical. Although I was only there for a few days, I felt transformed and that feeling still lingers with me even 3 weeks after returning home. Not since my childhood, in an extremely rural and undeveloped part of the South, have I experienced such complete quiet. Ratna Ling is so peaceful... More
