We stayed for only one night (sadly) but the one night was very memorable! We were greeted by fresh juice and ice cold towels to wash up. Service was prompt, friendly and all around amazing! The grounds are stunning and the views breathtaking. We loved the food! We were able to enjoy three healthy flavourful meals, lounge by the pool and walk the grounds. I also must say that my sleep was the deepest, longest sleep I had in a while. The setting is serene, the air fresh and it's quiet! The hotel was also able to accommodate our request for a late check-out (this may not always be possible, in our case our room wasn't booked the day of our departure). We loved our stay and would recommend this hotel to all our friends!
The only possible downside is that the yoga options are limited. I would expect more class options from a yoga retreat. There were only two classes a day and none on Wednesdays. This was a bit disappointing. A word of caution I would give is to make sure your taxi driver knows where this hotel is located. Ours brought us to another similarly named hotel and we winded up driving around for 45 minutes looking for this place.
If you're looking for a quiet & beautiful retreat, look no further! You won't be disappointed.
