From the Vedanta talks, to the wellness menus, yoga morning sessions and afternoon workouts, it's a mind, body, spirit retreat. The highlight for me of course was Prohuit who waited...

Great place, comfortable rooms, good service, serious and genuine yoga (but accommodating to all levels), fabulous personal trainers, authentic ayurvedic treatments, luxurious spa and delicious food. The only thing you could hope for is a longer stay.

We achieved what we set out to do- which was coaching on meditation and yoga. Our routine was idyllic- yoga, breakfast, mediation, spa treatments, lunch, exercise, and evening meditation classes. What differentiates Anandaspa from other...
