We usually stay here when visiting the town rather than a hotel on the highway. It is always so relaxing and quiet in a qorgeous southern style atmosphere. We usually eat lunch or dinner in town as there are so many interesting places to eat. The Raj is our home away from home. Room a/c's are a it noisy.

Loved my five days at the Raj. Treatments were excellent. Felt so well . Food could be improved . Vegetarian is good but could be more creative. Yoga classes were too slow for my taste. Liked the evening lectures. Met interesting people.

This was a wellness weekend that far exceeded our expectations. World class knowledge was shared with the guests and the experience is unlike any other you will likely receive stateside. Love yourself and get the royal treatment at The Raj.

The Raj has a very settled, peaceful, positive atmosphere that always makes me breathe a big sigh of letting go as soon as I walk in the door. It is a very good place to rest and power down for a little while. The staff makes guests feel welcome and cared for.

Best experience for the price! Very healing and warm energy from everyone there! Met many people who make an annual trip to the Raj for many years! I understand why! Great food, treatments, and lectures. A vacation for the soul.

The Raj provides world-class Ayurvedic wellness treatments along with delicious meals and relaxing rooms and service. Rest and quiet are paramount. It is worth the travel to the out-of-the-way location for the experience one gets at the Raj.

The location is a bit out of the way but the facility is lovely, comfortable and clean. The food is delicious and the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable. The trip is not direct for me but its an easy trip.

I like to write positive reviews as I always like to reward effort. However, in this case, my review is quite critical. My overall impression was a cult like experience. I felt the employees were almost like robots, quite stiff with a forced smile. It gave me the creeps. No one went out of their way to help, I had... More

I'm sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience. We hear this from time to time - usually from those who had different expectations. The Raj is a HEALTH SPA and our goals are much different than those of a regular beauty spa. Our entire facility is conducted & built around authentic Ayurvedic principles, especially the food. We...

I decided I needed a break from work and family and just a few days to destress. I decided to take a two day trip for a program they call "Taste of the Raj" just to relax. I have been to a number of destination spas before, but never a medical spa. I knew I was going to arrive late... More

I arrived with several health issues, one of which was sudden weight gain and sluggish thyroid, and the other was very irritated eyes with and an unbelievable number of floaters. I lost all the weight. I had a thyroid test, and the results were excellent. And I can't believe it, but at least half of my floaters are gone and... More
