We enjoyed 2 weeks of relaxation in a very peaceful environment. We started with 8 days of detox. The information and support from the team were really perfect. The menu, although it was a detox program, was fresh and tasteful. The core and cycle training were perfect to get rid of the remaining toxins. Yoga and meditation were really helpful. After the detox, we enjoyed the total care program with sauna and massage on top of the core and cycle training and for sure the yoga and meditation part. The trainers were really excellent and motivating. The food was really tasteful and the chef was doing a really great job! If you are looking for a peaceful oasis disconnected from our crazy world, just go there, relax and enjoy the sound of silence!

For the third time we had a wonderful, relaxed, active and happy time at Samahita! It’s the combination of all this that makes Samahita so unique. And that’s why we will come next year! Thank you Samahita for taking care after my little accident! Not of your fault I had to go to hospital three times, and you paid the taxi everytime! That’s not normal service, but real hospitality! See you next year!!!

I truly breathed in a new life with Samahita. So so much thank you for that!! A place that helps to get rid of unnecessary thoughts and habits from our city lives. Such a beautiful location! Nature is fantastic, best yoga with the sea view ever! healthy food, very good spa and massage. I am pretty lazy with sport and the purpose of this retreat was to energise myself and let the new healthy habits to be born. It has been achieved and after 7 days I could see a great result, that I brought back with me and so far there is no day without yoga. People. They became a family .Teachers knowledgable and very helpful. They shared best practises. I met friends who will be forever. I left this place with a gratitude that i have met them, I have learnt from each of them. And that what makes this place great - people. Thank you to all of you.

spent 5 nights at Vikasa Yoga Retreat, before moving to Samahita retreat to join my yoga group for 4 nights there. We did not participate in Samahita’s yogacorecycle classes, so I will not comment there. However, after experiencing the healthy, almost-vegan but absolutely, so very delicious and grnerous food at Vikasa, the food game at Samahita was a major disappointment. Healthy food does not have to be tasteless, or bland, or unimaginative, as proven by Vikasa. Samahita needs to up their culinary game, in my opinion. Also, after observeing the PR officer standing at the buffet table to wipe up non-existant mess after each guest help themselves to food, is off putting and frankly, quite rude of her. Was it her intention to shame or make your guest embarrassed? Not good guest relation skills at all. Please do better. Paying guest do not like to be treated like misbehaving kids.

Dear Teri, thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear you did not like our food offering. We do generally get very good feedback both on the food, and the cleanliness of our facilities. Cleanliness is of importance to us, and especially so in these coronavirus times. We are sorry to hear you perceived our efforts as shaming or misbehaving towards guest. That was certainly not the intention. We will, like many business, close for a period of time now and we will take this time to reflectupon our offering and do our utmost to upgrade and improve everywhere we can, including our buffet. Thank you for your feedback, it is important for us to receive all feedback to be able to constantly improve. We wish you health and peace in these turbulent times. Warmest regards, Johanna & Team

2019 was a tough year - lots of personal life transitions and not enough time to really process it all at the time - a break was needed. On the recommendation of a colleague I decided to go to Samahita instead of something closer to home and am very glad I did. I needed time to myself, time to refresh, recharge and renew and found all those things here. I also made a few friends along the way. I took the YogaCoreCycle program and it was a great value. Despite the distance and longer flight - this was all together much more affordable than alternatives I considered in the US, Mexico and Caribbean. The facilities are very nice - clean, comfortable, bright and modern feeling. The yoga and breathing classes are excellent. Spinning is spinning and I skipped the core workouts after the first day. you really can't do all the programs every day or you would be exhausted by the end of the week. Pace yourself - there's no pressure to be at everything - in fact the staff also recommend pacing and not trying to do too much. I recommend the self-directed yoga with support later in the week. Its a good way to get your own personalized yoga practice to take home - and its almost like getting a personal lesson. I went two times and there was only one other person doing it - so I got a lot of attention from the instructor on duty. I also signed up for the total wellness add on which includes 5 or so spa treatments - excellent massage treatments! I tried the infra-red sauna, but only went twice - it was warm enough and I sweated a lot from the regular programs - I didn't need to sweat much more. For a single male traveler I had the perfect mix of quiet time, social interaction, exercize, healthy eating (excellent food), and pampering. The staff is wonderful - from the instructors, wellness staff, housecleaning staff, snack bar staff, and the "leaders" who are instructors who wear a couple hats - they make a point of checking in a few times personally during the week to see how things are going, are very approachable. They mingle a bit during meals. I will be back!!
