    an amazing place tucked away in the mountains. The views are stunning. A great place to spend some quiet time and re discover yourself. The spa is also amazing. It is bit hilly but there were shuttles provided to make it convenient. Very helpful staff.

    Hello and thank you for the question, We do allow children here at the Art of Living Retreat Center with the one exception. The exception is that children under the age of 18 can not stay in our Spa building.
