This amazing retreat is like a dream, a mix of every great place I've ever stayed. Great shopping, yoga several times a day, comfortable bed in an air conditioned room, full kitchen, and best of all, incredible people. Brendan and Sofiah are so welcoming and laid back. I can't wait to go back.

Everyone is very friendly and knowledgeable of the town and excursions. We went there to kind of reset ourselves and fitness and health goals and have left there healthier and happier. They're extremely organized and have a great communication to... More

I checked out of Danyasa last night, and it was soooo hard to leave. This eco-friendly center is so welcoming and light and gorgeous, with a variety of on-going yoga classes that keep you feeling fulfilled. It feels more like a home than a retreat center, and is incredibly safe. I attended a teacher training for aerial yoga, and they... More
