It's one of the top 10 resorts when i googled with "yoga retreat". And very reasonable price for the low season. Response from the resort was quick when i sent out enquiry. Very limited numbers of room with air conditioner. However, when i stay in a standard room without air conditioner, i am very appreciated to the resort insisting on offering me this low price room at the ever beginning. The temperature is nice all day long even at the noon time with sun. Wind breeze all the time. My room number is 128. Easy to go any where. Yoga hall is right above with a few stairs from a close corner. The stairs to the Health Center is 3 meters from my room, too. So perfect location when i only waring a piece of cloth for the daily treatment. Although the balcony is not at the sea front, sound of the sea is just right there, not too low not too loud.
It's a small and very quiet resort. Only one kid shows up at the 5th day. Ayurbeda is the major theme here plus Yoga and TaiJi Class. No meat neither alcohol except fish. The website of this resort provides very detail information about this medical system.
In short, if you are looking for fun or luxury, it's not the place. If you would like to give yourself a break in a peaceful environment, here it is.
Mosquito preventers like spray, patch, etc. Don't worry about the sleeping time. There is a net for the bed. Out of the bed, it's all on your own.
Sandals. It's extremely clean here. Local people get of their shoes before entering a room. It will make you look dumb not respecting that or wasting time on get in & out your shoes.
Travel size of shampoo & conditioners. The regular treatment make your hair full of oil while the water pressure is very weak in the room ( this is my only complain to the resort). So if you have long hair, wash them in the health center after the "garden session" will be better.
Another Sandals which could prevent slipping if you want to walk on the reef.
Sun Block. Of course.
A or some books you want to read but never have time / peaceful mind for them when you are home. There is a library here, but it might not have what you want.
If you are not very good at English, prepare a list to describe your concern to your health condition. Learn some words used in medical check. The doctor here will interview you at the first day and some days after as follow up.
Small changes for tip. Although everything is included in the package here, you could help local peoples by showing gratitude to their good services.
Read the instructions available in the Health Center Hall before you take those special treatments . It seems the doctors and therapists are not good at giving information.
You will like this resort. Enjoy.
