“special interests are well served in a lovely setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2011

My experience at BS was exceptional. I found the physical layout of the buidings & amenities to be well planned and perfectly executed. My visit was in BS's second year and everything was brand new. Our nature cottage was huge,airy and was situated so that while it was adjacent to other cottages it felt private. The shower was outdoors and one day a howler monkey observed the bathing process.This is a "green" resort so the linens and towels were not changed all week. There were numerous steep stairs up to the main bldg. BS is not suited for someone with walking restrictions. Although the main bldg. has an elevator. The meals, lobby and programs are held found in the main bldg. which is full of windows and open to the air. I loved the quiet at BS, never heard any street noise or commotion from other resorts. The beach was delightful. It is crucial to watch the tides. Bring h2o shoes for the rocks.
The vegetarian food was a advertized. All veggies. Fish one night. Bring chocolate for your room. The program I attended was good, and these change every week. Overall the facility exceeded my expectations. I have been to Omega Rhinebeck, several times, and this is nicer. ~~ A superior hotel facility.

Had a wonderful time at Blue Spirit. The building is beautiful, the attention to detail is amazing. The yoga studio is amazing..a 360 view of water and mountains. Attended an omega institute week and I really enjoyed the programs. The food is very healthy and terrific. Had two massages that were wonderful. I came home feeling much more relaxed and rejuvenated....
