What an incredibly beautiful place nestled in the heart of the Catskills. The owners of this resort are delightful and the grounds are filled with bountiful flora and Fonda birds frogs and butterflies. I would definitely return and have already reserved my spot for next summer. There are only three rooms so get them while the going is hot.

Just returned from another week at Sanivan wanting to highly recommend a visit here, especially during this beautiful spring/summer season. I usually come for a week of juicing, and delicious raw foods. But always what I most appreciate is the serenity, the kindness and wisdom of Saniye and Ivan, and the blessings of the surrounding community. This B&B atmosphere offers... More

First of all, I'm glad I read the previous reviews. People, this is a house. A home. Saniye (rhymes with Kanye) and Ivan live here. It's on a corner lot in a neighborhood, with neighbors and dogs and other stuff beyond the control of the Sanivan staff. So once you know that, you are ready to settle in and enjoy... More

I spent a week at Sanivan Holistic Retreat and Spa in mid February 2016. Saniye and Ivan have integrated their expansive knowledge about foods, exercise, spiritual balance, health choices and environment to create a truly holistic experience. Your stay will be personalized yet guided, whether you want to juice and detox, or treat yourself to a facial or shiatsu massage.... More

Needed a chance to rebalance, de-stress, re-energize. Saniye and Ivan did that and more for me. I spent 3 nights, which was just perfect for me. Yoga, shiatsu, facial, exercise were all terrific. The facilities are great with the spa bath and steam bath - and more. The food is outstanding - fresh, homemade, organic - so delicious! And the... More

I didn't know what to expect when I signed up for a week at Sanivan Holistic Retreat in the Catskill Mountains in Upstate New York. I'm not a Spa kind of person, but the description of Sanivan Retreat as a 'Holistic B&B for the Soul' appealed to me greatly, so off I went. What a wonderful treat It turned out... More

Saniye and Ivan have created a beautiful healing oasis at Sanivan. They were extremely conscious of my need to work while I was there and supported me with unobtrusive hospitality. Saniye's juices were deliciously creative and Ivan's bodywork is extremely intuitive and nourishing. Of the three places I have been for a juice fast, this is the only one I... More

I just went for four days by myself to center myself and heal. It was such a great place to do it. The massage, sauna, and showers were great! I looked forward to each meal-Saniye is a great cook. They were the best home cooked meals ever. Saniye went to the CSA to pick up veggies and we had it... More

I have been to Sanivan four or five times in the past year. Everytime I go I arrive stressed and tired and leave feeling peaceful and energized. The greatest asset that Sanivan has are its owners, Saniye and Ivan. They are caring, knowledgable, lovely people who really work very hard to make sure that your stay is comfortable and satisfying.... More
