Two friends and I stayed at The Raj in July. We also had the facial and the oil massage called Abhyanga. We had a fun and relaxing time overall, but The Raj was just okay. In our opinion the room rate and treatment prices were higher than appropriate. I will not return. The Pros: The beds were very comfortable and... More

I was there for a week for the Panchakarma ayurvedic treatment spa. The hotel itself was clean and nice. Beautiful grounds in the middle of Iowan farmland. Also was located in Vedic City, which is the first man-made "enlightened" town in the US. Everything is built to code in the ayurvedic style. All food is vegetarian. Interesting experience.

People come to the Raj for Panchakarma treatments -- they stay for a week ... or a month and get a variety of treatments. It's at once a very relaxing hotel / spa-like environment in the middle of nowhere and also an anchoring institution in the heart of a very interesting spiritual community (TM - Transcendental Meditation). I came on... More

Staying at the Raj is like staying in a freshly rennovated mansion. The rooms are sound-proof, the place is beautiful. My body immediately relaxed into the comfort and deep rest that is part of the Raj's healing experience. I found the people (both the other participants and the staff) interesting, kind, and helpful, the food wonderful, the oil massages every... More

I have been going to The Raj in Fairfield, Iowa almost yearly since it opened in 1993. That fact alone should be an impressive recommendation! For the deepest kind of rest and rejuvenation you just cannot do better. It offers so much more in the way of real healing than any other spa.

A VERY, VERY interesting and different experience for me. The Raj is not really a spa in any traditional sense but an in-patient wellness program focused on cleansing the system and nourishing the body. The experience was fully individualized by caring professionals. The other guests, a limited number due to highly persoanl system of care at 10-15 individuals, were other... More

The Raj isn't really a hotel, although that's the TripAdvisor category. It's primarily an Ayurvedic Health Spa. I had 7 days of treatments here in both November 2011 and November 2012, and my experiences were even better the second time. Having a friend in Fairfield, I didn't stay here, but the general areas, dining, and treatment rooms were all very... More

I have been to top health spas all over the world, and the one I keep going back to is The Raj. It is truly the most peaceful and rejuvenating.
