Used only the second half of the day, therefore unable to describe and comment in more detail the various facilities and programmes offered...but I can say that all by itself, and by local standards, is a good place to de-stress. However, the centre can improve vastly in some areas, for example, by providing some very basic facilities such as slippers... More

Liked the overall experience.. the place was very quiet and serene. The staff the therapist and the doctors were very helpful and co operative. The food was good as well. I would surely visit again and recommend it to my friends and family. Only thing which I would like to mention is the price for half day was not worth... More

Tucked away into the mountains, this place is more than a wellness center. It is therapeutic in more facets than one. Very judiciously planned marriage of Ayurveda and Yoga, coupled with custom planned therapeutic center.

This has been my first experience in an Ayurvedic retreat, you do not go there thinking of it as a vacation, but rather to unplug from your everyday life, to join a different life style and a world of peace, quietness, almost in a slow motion, and to find yourself far away from the problems left behind. But it is... More

Kare is an amazing facility. It has a very good Yoga Program and excellent treatments. Food is also good with different variety everyday. The best part of Kare is the AMAZING staff who know their job well and are super friendly and efficient. I loved my stay and will go again.

Looking over Mulshi Lake, a perfect location. You won't have time to go sight seeing and shopping as everyone has a full itinerary of yoga and treatments from start to finish. Thank you Kare for another great experience.

Spent 6 days here being rejuvenated!! It's an amazing place and I came away feeling calm and restored after a busy 4 weeks backpacking in Gujarat. The setting is wonderful with fabulous views toward the lake. At first I found the yoga really tough as I hadn't tried Iyengar before, but I began to really enjoy it and actually looked... More

I stayed for nine nights and eight days in January, and did a three day detox. Wasn't sure what I had let myself in for, and would have welcomed more information (perhaps in the library?) about ghee detox and the principles and practice of Ayuverdic medicine. I should have done my homework before going, maybe. However, I followed instructions, the... More

This nurtures the body and takes one beyond its finite form into a timeless realm of peace, bliss and serenity aided by a highly qualified team of doctors, therapists, nutritionists and paramedics to ensure best methodical treatments. KARE, set atop mystic Sahyadri ranges, overlooks the calm water of the Mulshi Lake, against a backdrop of flowers and green scenic surroundings and natural waterfalls.
