If you are looking for real healing and rejuvenation then this is the place. I stayed for 10 wonderful days. I was fed healthy, balanced vegetarian meals, offered Ayuvedic supplements and consultation, and received Panchakarma treatments. Panchkarma involves sesame oil massage, steam detox and other Ayurvedic treatments in order to relax, detox, and rejuvenate. I took advantage of the some of the healing services including a session with an interpersonal relationship specialist and a Transformational Breathing practitioner, both experts and healers. The rooms was clean and comfortable. But most of all the staff was incredibly attentive and genuinely helpful. Overall, an amazing experience!!!! I highly recommend this retreat and I will return soon !!!!
