By far a simply astounding place...could never believe a place like this existed. When I set foot here I just didn't trust my eyes...The valley was right in front of you...breath-taking...So much peace, such calmness, such view...simply unbelievable. Have you ever felt hungry due to the aroma of cooking...you will feel it here...amazing traditional food. Reach here to feel it...words aren't enough to express Upasana.

Room Tip: Take the rooms providing you with the front view...the valleys are superb...for the back room you ma...

It was a fun and loving stay at the place. The pleasant green color of the nature accompanied by quick room service and fresh food made the 3 day stay memorable. Sipping a coffee while praising the beauty of the rising sun was wonderful. It deserves no less than 5 stars!!

If heaven was on earth, Upasana just might be it. The burning question on my lips, however, was how could I take it all home?

Days often started at 5.30am and finished at midnight. Was life stressful? Absolutely. Something had to give.

The five days I spent at Upasana, Wellbeing retreat above the western Ghats, turned everything on its head.

Days were suddenly a mix of morning sun,nourishing organic meals, activities, wellness seminars and a lengthy dose of afternoon dreamtime for languishing the day

With no office commute, no meals to cook... etc etc!!! Enjoyed a lot!!

Room Tip: "Rooms on the south side are quieter"
