Needed a chance to rebalance, de-stress, re-energize. Saniye and Ivan did that and more for me. I spent 3 nights, which was just perfect for me. Yoga, shiatsu, facial, exercise were all terrific. The facilities are great with the spa bath and steam bath - and more. The food is outstanding - fresh, homemade, organic - so delicious! And the... More

I didn't know what to expect when I signed up for a week at Sanivan Holistic Retreat in the Catskill Mountains in Upstate New York. I'm not a Spa kind of person, but the description of Sanivan Retreat as a 'Holistic B&B for the Soul' appealed to me greatly, so off I went. What a wonderful treat It turned out... More

Saniye and Ivan have created a beautiful healing oasis at Sanivan. They were extremely conscious of my need to work while I was there and supported me with unobtrusive hospitality. Saniye's juices were deliciously creative and Ivan's bodywork is extremely intuitive and nourishing. Of the three places I have been for a juice fast, this is the only one I... More

I just went for four days by myself to center myself and heal. It was such a great place to do it. The massage, sauna, and showers were great! I looked forward to each meal-Saniye is a great cook. They were the best home cooked meals ever. Saniye went to the CSA to pick up veggies and we had it... More

My daughter and I went to Sanivan Holistic Retreat with the goal to cleanse ourselves there and put our lifestyle on the right track. In our 7 day stay, we achieved, actually, more than we hoped for! Exquisite fresh organic juices and smoothies, absolutely delicious organic raw food (got great recipes from Saniye!), body detox with Dr. Schulze herbs and... More

I have been to Sanivan four or five times in the past year. Everytime I go I arrive stressed and tired and leave feeling peaceful and energized. The greatest asset that Sanivan has are its owners, Saniye and Ivan. They are caring, knowledgable, lovely people who really work very hard to make sure that your stay is comfortable and satisfying.... More

My husband and I came to visit Sanivan for a week in June. I needed a chance to get away from my hectic life and recharge my batteries. I chose to come to Sanivan because I wanted a more relaxed and "personal" experience than just going to a B&B, hotel, or big retreat center. What we got was exactly what... More

I spent a weekend here with two friends. It was relaxing, we had great massages, rooms are comfortable, and the food is excellent. But what the website does not tell you is that this is really a private house in a residential neighborhood, and you are eating in the owner's kitchen, sitting in their living room, and walking in their...

Hello Ithacanmom, thanks for your feedback. To address a few of your points… - We’re glad you enjoyed the treatments, accommodations and food! - Regarding us being a bed and breakfast: We’ve always had a large headline right on our home page that says “B&B for the Soul” as quoting Budget Travel Magazine, but thanks for pointing out that this...
