Take the shuttle boat across the bay to Paradise, literally. It's a jungle with bubbling fountains, shady palm trees, quiet places to meditate and sleep in the tent you brought or one of their "tent hut" tents (on a platform with cover with a bunch of other tents) or in a dorm, a tiny room or a slightly larger tiny...

If you love camping and yoga, you'll love this place! If you don't love camping, you might enjoy it if you get a room with a private bathroom. I visited the ashram on the Vacation Program. I stayed for five nights in a tent hut and was very comfortable. As a solo traveler I liked the privacy of the tent... More

Nice yoga retreat on an AMAZING beach! I stayed in a shared garden room with a bath. It was clean and basic but fine for the week I was there for a professional training. The food was fantastic and healthy. There are many places to sit and clear your mind and relax on the property and plenty of walking and... More

This is a special place that is very easy to visit and join into mindfulness and healthy habits-- with 2 times daily 105 minutes of yoga classes and robust vegetarian meals served buffet and family style. Traveling with my 20 year old daughter, we arrived in Nassau on New Year's Eve Dec 31 2015. We took a $30 taxi ride... More

not enough choice of accommodation when you don't want to share a room, or a bathroom. No service besides cleaning ...it is ok when the weather is fine, not always the case in the Bahamas, nice healthy food

Best food anywhere. Karma yogis always ready to help with anything. Common bathroom, showers and wash basins impeccable. One large family and everyone with a smile. Speakers were captivating. Early meditation set the pace for a great day every day. Silent walk on the beach was spiritually motivating. Slept in a tent hut and it was very comforting with lots... More

After visiting last year with my 2 adult children, we are planning to visit again next week. It is an unusual place, an "intentional community" where people from all over the world come to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and study together and participate in the classes and events. The beach is exquisite and very quiet. The living quarters are varied.... More

They talk about peace and love, but I did not experience it during my stay. Nobody meets your gaze on the path. Nobody smiles when they make eye contact. I always had to introduce myself; nobody introduced themselves to me. A joyless, humorless place in the middle of paradise.

Thank you for visiting the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat and for taking the time to write a review. It is very unfortunate that your experience was as you described. Our selfless service, karma yogis and staff are often immersed in silently chanting their mantras or may be practicing "mauna" - silence as they go about their daily tasks and duties.... More

I came on here on the recommendation of two friends who had experienced yoga here. I came to embrace the full ashram experience and to do so over the time period of my wife's sudden and tragic death one year earlier - it was an important part of my healing process. I was not disappointed on any aspect. As I... More

I have returned again and again to this little spiritual retreat on Paradise Island. This recent visit was filled with the making of new friends, delicious healthy food, excellent learning experiences and rich spiritual immersion I have come to know I can depend on when visiting. I shall return again and again and am very grateful for this oasis.
