I bought the single yogini package after deciding I needed some time to relax. Every single detail of my stay was smooth. From being picked up to be being dropped off I enjoyed every single moment. The resident yoga teachers are all excellent teachers. Each class was planned with such care and creativity. The food served was creative and delicious....

I have been wanting to go to Xinalani for years, and I saw a promotion and spontaneously purchased one week there (and I was able to extend for a couple of days). This was one of the best decisions that I have made! The property is simply stunning and you everything you could ever want right there: amazing ocean views...

This is my third stay at Xinalani Retreat for a New Years yoga retreat. It's very much an adventure from the minute you step off the plane. One needs to take a lovely 40 minute ferry ride to arrive at the property. Depending on the sea, this could be a tranquil or arduous experience. You jump out of the boat...

I went to Xinalani for a yoga retreat and would return without a moment's hesitation. I had one of the tree top rooms that had two walls completely open to the ocean and night air. The experience of falling asleep and waking up to ocean waves was lovely ... like out of a dream. The chef and food are world...

I've never stayed at a yoga retreat place before Xinalani....and now I think the bar has been set impossibly high for anyplace else. My friend and I stayed in one of the deluxe rooms with two double beds - it was very comfortable with incredible views, comfortable beds and a very well-thought-out design. Food was incredible, yoga classes were great,...

Everything was incredible, the staff is friendly and caring, the service is extraordinary, the food is healthy, although, this place it's only for those who love nature, this is an eco hotel, do not expect AC, the whole main idea is to enjoy nature.

My stay at Xinalani was nothing short of magic. From the moment I arrived, the staff was warm and welcoming and the views were breathtaking. My room, which was nestled into the cliffs overlooking the ocean, made me feel like I was living in a postcard. The food was delicious, the staff was attentive, the sprawling premises were well-kept, the...

Xinalani is truly a magical place. My friend and I stayed for just three days but had the most amazing experience. Everything is so well designed and planned out for you.
