I went solo on a retreat to Ratna Ling in March, and I had a lovely time. I connected with beautiful, amazing people. The vegetarian meals were delicious! I took all the classes provided and also had some solo time to reflect. The grounds and the cabin I stayed in were fantastic. My cabin wasn't very close to other cabins,... More

Beautiful newly built cabins with attention to simplistic high quality woodworking and high hand done detail right down to the beautiful iron hardware on doors and vent coverings throughout the house. Small kitchenette areas (not a full kitchen with stoves..just microwave and fridge and sink area), sitting areas, healthy food (all inclusive), decks overlooking forested areas, and wonderful people on...

We had a great time. The food was amazing. The grounds are beautiful. Great trails around the property for a trail run or a short hike. We drove 20 mins to the coast for a late morning run and a beautiful sunset picnic. It was quiet and serene. We even booked 2 massages in our cottage. The perfect girls weekend.

I needed to get away and so did my friend. We found a 3-day retreat on Living Social and I'm so thankful we went. Ratna Ling is beautiful, quiet, and indulgent. Our cabin faced phenomenal views and the buildings were gorgeous. We could hike to the cove and take yoga or meditations classes. I'm not a quiet person in life,... More

I was at ratna ling for a 5 day yoga retreat this past weekend and it was beyond beautiful! The food was absolutely phenomenal at breakfast, lunch and dinner. The surrounding area is picturesque, the cottages are simple and clean with porches that look out to redwoods and green pastures. The staff was lovely, very helpful, and flexible. If you... More

Thank you RL for a wonderful time. Inspiring and relaxing at the same time. It was so much better than I had preconceived beforehand. The lodges are so well appointed in order to make sure that no lodge overlooks another but close enough to give a sense of community. Inside the lodges look as if they were just built they... More

The environment was so beautiful and serene with old huge redwood trees that made me feel like is was walking on sacred ground. Deers and wild turkeys roamed around and the human presence didn't seem to scare or bother them. The cottage had a rustic look outside but the inside was spacious, modern, and elegantly decorated that i instantly felt... More

We were completely blown away by the beauty of the grounds, the views, and our cabin... as other reviews note, the cabins are very spacious, modern, and luxurious.

I bought a Living Social deal for a cabin for two, all meals included, for November of 2011. The price was a great deal but I wasn't sure what to expect.

“All of the lodges are excellent. Some however are further away than others. If you do not wish to walk far (albeit say 7 minutes) at night then ask for one of the six lodges that are next to the main buildings”
