Travelling all the way from Norway we were eager to find a place that could fullfill some of our wishes for the trip. First of all we wanted a place where we could practice and learn some (more) yoga . From the reviews and the pictures Sattva spa seemed a very good choice. As we arrived we were met in an rather unfriendly way and did not feel very welcome. To our big disappointment the yoga teacher and owner Mr. Anand had gone for a motorcyckle holiday. We could use the yoga hall , but no fan and air condition, which made our yogaessions a rather sweaty affair. A room had been prepared for us, but as my wife has a bad leg, we asked for the bungalow with ground entrance. That room was not clean and when my wife found a scorpion in the bed we accepted the room that had been prepared. That room was fine and had a good view. The sheets however were not clean and when we asked for new ones, they only turned them around. When we asked for the room safe to be opened nothing happened and the same with a request for some cleaning of ants in the room. The food was good but very limited in choice and the first two days we mostly ate potatoes as they had not bought any food for the guests. Still we paid far more than twice the prices for similar food in Rishikesh. The manager was friendly as was the man that served us food (he seemed a bit embarrassed in fact). The only thing that was up to standards that would be expected in such a place was the spa. Expensive, but clean, a good atmosphere and a sweet and very skilled massage woman. The place as a whole was not as expected and when my new Gopro Hero3 camera with some spectacular shots disappeared we had enough and left the place before scheduled. We had to pay (full price) for the whole stay, but were glad to go to Rishikesh.
