“What a Way to Relax....What a Way to Unwind”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Creacon Lodge has been my destination for years when I really want to get away. Working very long hours and days, I seldom get the chance to just be with no hustle and bustle. Creacon Lodge, with their friendly staff, excellent service and unique tranquil atmosphere I find myself always recharged. Their unique spa services and classes make this a self help mecca without ever trying. Come and enjoy this exquisite place. It is like none other I have ever been!

Room Tip: Every room I have had is special.

Creacon Lodge is an impeccably clean and well-run facility located in a lovely, peaceful setting and run by extremely welcoming and friendly staff. My spa treatment was top notch; much better than those I've had at 5-Star Resorts. And it was so warm! Which is saying something, for those familiar with retreat centers in Ireland and the U.K.

Despite this, I give the centre an 'average' rating because -- as someone who is not a disciple of Derek's (the lodge's owner/guru) -- it was simply a bit over-the-top for me. As a seasoned meditator, I found the meditation hall overwhelming; more sensory overload than the relaxed meditative environment I had hoped for. Upon entering the hall to your left is a buddha statue flanked on one side by a picture of Merlin and on the other side by a drawing of a hooded man who I assume was an avatar of sorts -- (i.e., a being that certain New Age philosophies believe have superhuman qualities, this includes Jesus). Throughout the hall you find various idols and pictures of Jesus, angels, many Indian gurus, a large photo of Michael Jackson, photos of Derek and his wife as gurus themselves, and much much more. I found it cluttered and confusing, but that is just my perception, of course. I prefer a more simple meditation hall.

By no means did anyone apply any pressure to 'convert' us to the Prema Agni belief system that Derek has developed. It was VERY relaxed in that regard. But throughout the lodge were quite a few icons and idols of Derek himself, such as paperweights with Derek's face etched onto them. This gave me some pause and made me wonder if he is a cult figure, but 'the internet' shows he has helped many people, which is wonderful.

All in all, Creacon Lodge is quite well run by a lovely staff, but the mixture of religions/icons can be a bit overwhelming for some. For those looking for a more neutral meditative environment, Creacon Lodge is not it, in my opinion. For those intrigued by New Age philosophies, this IS it! I don't think you'll be disappointed!!

A friend and I partook in lunch today, purchased through Groupon. We both had potato & leek soup for starters which was beautiful and very well received on a very cold day. The ambience of Creacon is unique , very tranquil and the staff very welcoming and warm. We then had a toasted sandwich and bruschetta which were both very tasty. Highly recommend the peppermint tea made with mint grown at Creacon! Desserts too were divine - an apple & cinamon muffin and chocolate biscuit/cookie cheesecake. The whole experience was peaceful and lunch was divine. Highly recommend. We will definitely be returning. Thank you Jonathan and Marcela.

Thank you for your rave review of Creacon's lunch. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed every course including our homegrown peppermint tea :) What is more exciting is that our new and improved cafe format is launching next week complete with more options, various salads, and a bounty of gourmet and homemade treats.

Room Tip: i was given a room on the ground, and it was quiet. i guess i would suggest that.
