I would highly recommend Shanti Resort! My sister & I have been staying at Shanti Resort for the past 5 years & will be returning again this year. Great home-made vegetarian food, wonderful yoga (taught by Wendy & Darin during our stays) and fabulous accommodations, at a great value! They often have guest instructors too. It's situated on a lovely...

This was my first yoga retreat and my expectations were blown away. Darin and Wendy are so incredibly kind and welcoming. The staff are all very warm and helpful. The property is beautiful and peaceful. It appeared there were many outdoor activities to do in the warmer months, but being chilly out it was so lovely to bundle up and...

I attended my first yoga retreat here with some trepidation. I felt that melt away as I approached the property. A playful and peaceful energy seemed to be strategically placed throughout . The garden buddhas, the labyrinth, the swings and hammocks all beckoning for some attention. The food was wonderful and the people were open and warm. Such a beautiful...

Attended an energy healing/easy and restorative yoga retreat mid-week end of August. It was ideal! There was great flexibility in the classes to allow all levels of yogis to participate and fully engage. Wendy and Darin are wonderful and enthusiastic yoga leaders! To top it all off, the grounds and lodge inspire joyful tranquility.

I am still vibrating with love after the wonderful week spent at Shanti in silent retreat…. I am so appreciative for the nourishing environment provided, from the energy of the property, to the little hugs I felt on the inside with their nourishing food, to the attention to detail that shows love everywhere. I have travelled the world, for business...

I stayed with a couple of my friends for the Labor Day weekend at Shanti retreat. This is an oasis and starts from the moment you arrive. Despite arriving really late, Wendy, the hostess, cheerfully whipped up a quick delicious dinner. We felt at home right away. The ambience is beautiful. The river and the surroundings almost seem surreal and...

I stayed as a bed and breakfast guest for couple of nights and it was nothing short of fantastic. I had experienced two highly stressful weeks prior to my visit and I left feeling like a new person -- relaxed and refreshed. The Inn has been renovated and its has a wonderfully relaxing feel to it.

Wow!! What. Place!, My daughter and I decided to partake in a yoga retreat this year. The Shanti was an excellent choice. So relaxing. Beautiful surroundings, excellent organic food, pleasant staff. Well worth the money. So relaxing. We stayed in the main building. Nothing fancy and I would have enjoyed air conditioning. Eating a delicious meal on their patio over...

Shanti is the sort of retreat where great memories are made. The atmosphere at the lodge is welcoming and truly amazing if you are looking for great energy and a peaceful get away from the city. The yoga and meditation classes are enriching and will leave you so relaxed people back on the mainland will notice. The food is always...

I had a wonderful time at the retreat - everything was absolutely perfect. That is until I got home and opened my wallet to find the two one hundred dollar bills missing. I notified the owners and they assured me in 13 seasons, they have never had a report of theft and I should let them "know if the money...

We're very happy to hear that you had such a wonderful stay. As mentioned in our earlier email correspondence, we're very sorry to hear about your situation. It's a very unusual occurrence for us. In our thirteen years of operating Shanti we've never had a report of anything being lost or stolen. We stated that "it may turn up where...
