I decided to treat my wife to a yoga retreat in the mountains, while I spent my days photographing the coffee harvest. We both discovered so much more, and had a hard time leaving the resort. Something neither of us had experienced before. One week really was not enough, and we will likely return for 2 weeks in 2007.
This is not your typical high end resort. Their packages include plenty of yoga, food and off site tours. I toured all of the available accommodations and they are all great. We were fortunate to get upgraded to their most luxurious room, the Pagoda, which is like a private chalet with a king sized bed, jacuzzi tub and an outdoor shower! The food is exceptional with nothing but healthy choices and enough chicken and fish to satisfy your typical carnivore (like myself). I had never tried yoga before, and this is the perfect location to start. I'm now hooked! The staff are really great, and go out of your way to make you feel welcome. We made great friends with them before the end of the week. There are also a number of great and relaxing spa treatments that are fairly unique, and well executed. Can't wait to go back!
