We booked this retreat for a reset during our 5 1/2 month travels of Asia but we received was so much more. A place that teaches you how to implement yoga, breathing and meditation into your daily life. LIFE CHANGING RETREAT!!! The management staff, yoga teachers and the Khmer staff are simply amazing and very well organized. The food was...

I cannot even begin to relay to my friends and family about the wonderful experience I had at Hariharalaya. The staff, program and accommodations we're just the icing. What Joel and his family/staff have created is like nowhere else. A safe and comfortable place to begin a journey of self- realization through yoga and meditation. My favorite part was THE...

I found Hariharalaya to be a very balanced retreat - a good amount of yoga and meditation with other activities. The food is wonderful, healthy and abundant (all vegan). There is no coffee or black tea, but none of us caffeine-addicts seemed to have a problem with the detox. The center is very peaceful and pretty with nice gardens and...

This is an amazing place for anyone who needs to relax! The environment, the food, the activities, the staff - everything is great! I think everyone needs to visit a place like this to get a break from reality, the stressful pace and to be reminded what's important in life. There is just the right amount of free time VS...

I visited Hariharalaya from 31 Jan to 6 Feb 2017. The centre is very well organized, free pickup from the Siem Reap city centre to the retreat. The food is vegetarian and light. I expected to lose some weight, but since the meals were offered in abundance, did not succeed. The program had mandatory and non-mandatory parts – Dharma talks,...

This retreat was a perfect mix of yoga, meditation and relaxation, with delicious vegan food in beautiful surroundings. It felt like a week in paradise, with amazing blue skies, butterflies, lush gardens, relaxing space with hammocks and a pool to cool off in. I stayed in an open air bunglow and fell asleep to the sound of crickets, geckos and...

I have nothing negative to say about my time at Hariharalaya. This week long retreat was incredible and life altering. The staff are knowledgeable and passionate, the other guests are now my dear friends, and the food was delicious and healthy. The yoga/mediation sessions were both challenging and rewarding. I had only taken a few yoga classes before coming here:...
