My husband and I went for a R and R package to Omega for four days last month. Most R & R packages are 3 or 5 days- but the people at reservations were flexible. One of the things that stands out about Omega is the staff who are very dedicated and friendly. Everybody there is friendly, helpful, and down to earth.
We stayed in a cabin. It was comfortable but small. Don't go expecting world class resort quality rooms. If you go thinking . . .elevated camping you'll be pleasantly surprised. If you're picky you may want to bring your own pillow. You should also bring a towel for the beach, a flashlight (it's very dark at night), soap and, bug spray.
The vegetarian food was fantastic. In truth; some meals were better than others. They do have an extensive salad bar and choices of things to eat. I especially enjoyed the gazpacho and chickpea salad. I was not impressed with the pizza or tacos- but where I live there are many great restaurants.
I truly enjoyed the classes- some of the teachers seemed to be visiting for the week- like the tai chi, yoga, and meditation teachers. Others were staff members. It was a great sampling of what Omega has to offer. My husband and I felt so relaxed and renewed afterwards. If you are on the fence about going- you should go. Ok- they don't have 400 thread count sheets. It doesn't matter- you will get so much more out of going there than doing a "normal" vacation. It really was inspiring to us. On other vacations I have come back with dirty laundry and a hang over, but with this trip I really felt terrific and I can't wait to go again.
