First let me say that, if you are looking for a place to get away for a while, this may be ok, albeit with a far eastern religious approach. However, I was just looking for a hotel room during homecoming weekend at App. State when hotels in Boone were booked or outrageously expensive. I do not think I will stay... More

Thank you for the feedback on your recent stay with us. We both welcome it and appreciate it. We are a unique property, not associated with any particular religion, and as a retreat center you will not find everything that a typical hotel has to offer but, rather daily yoga and meditation, Ayurvedic Spa services and Art of Living courses....

A friend and I went for a long weekend getaway and stayed in the spa hotel. The room was great, nothing fancy which we didn't need or expect. There is plenty of complimentary water, coffee, fruit, and tea down in the lobby. The room was pretty comfortable at night with the windows open, ceiling fan, and box fan. I would... More

If you are looking for an action packed, Grove Park Inn like experience...please pass by. If your focus is on health, inner reflection, growth through experiencing another culture and relaxation, please, come right on in. This review focuses more on the experience and not a general overview. I do suggest researching Ayurvedic practices and principles to give you a better... More

I planned a special Valentines weekend retreat and as you can image I wanted that to be a special time to celebrate our love for one another. It is extremely difficult to celebrate love when you are sweating in the mountains in February. I could have stayed at any hotel but I chose this spa because of the reviews that... More

the room was very comfortable. yoga and meditation classes were really great for a beginner. They really energized me and have me looking forward to a return. The vegetarian menu was quite a treat--not often vegetarians can eat all that is offered, and actually have choice of food. A great experience.

This place is a hidden gem, though not that far off the beaten path. It is a great place to unplug and reconnect with friends, family, and nature. There are many hiking trails on the property and it is so peaceful. The staff is very accommodating too. I loved the classes offered to guests, some of them free! The room... More

This place is just heaven on earth- very spiritual and it has such a healing environment. One feels more light and alive in this place. They have one of the best ayurvedic spa of the country. I really enjoyed "Bliss therapy" treatment. Looking forward to more.
