I went to Anamaya for a month long yoga teacher training and could not have been more pleased with the location, accomodations, staff and food. We were made to feel completely at home.
The site is perched on a hill overlooking the water and is a mile or so walk down to the beach and town. It is STEEP and good going down but coming up is a workout! Cabs are available if you are not so inclined. It is a spectacular location with views from most every room. I stayed in the Hanuman Cabin which is down a few sets of stairs. (Don't pick this one if you have difficulties with steps) It had a king bed and a queen bed, outdoor bathroom and deck with hammock. I saw all the rooms there and really, there is not one I wouldn't have felt comfy and happy in. There are a number of 'share' rooms with many beds. they have good pictures on the website if that is important to you.
Food - Grown locally on a farm that is associated with Anamaya. Everything fresh, delicious. They have a fantastic chef. They are willing to accomodate any diet - Just speak up! and it will happen for you. All of the staff is so friendly, helpful-I feel like part of their family now! Joseph the owner and creator of this retreat center is helpful and knowledgeable and you can see his attention to detail everywhere. He's done a wonderful job in making this a place to remember and come back to. I can't say that really, about anywhere else I've ever been.
Let me know if you have any questions further - happy to answer them for you about this place!
