Came back from the resort few days ago. I took the 5 day mind body spirit package and deeply regret that I did not take the 7 day package. I really did not want to leave the place. I stayed in Zenda with a friend. The room was very clean and just the right size for two. The yoga in the morning and evening was fantastic and it was taught by different teachers which to me was a plus. Food was outstanding, the chef was very nice and accommodating and was so nice to chat with her as long as I had a translator nearby. all the staff , from the cleaners to the cooks to the reception area employees to the sales person Miguel were very nice and made us feel very welcome. Enjoyed the day tours that they offered and especially the amazing Jenny ( our guide) . She was so knowledgeable . I wish though that the resort would invest in another more comfortable van for the day tours especially one where the guide can sit while she is talking instead of having to stand for over an hour. The scenery of the place is amazing with real kinds of birds singing all the time. Make sure you make use of their outstanding healers. They all have amazing talents.
