I had only planned to stay three days at Ayurveda Health Retreat, but ended up staying six days! The place was so relaxing and the food was simply amazing! I let Richard know i was very interested in the cooking lesson, and he made sure I got plenty! It was lovely eating around the table together, and everything was always extremely clean. The entire place is very calming, they have a a blue sky with clouds covering the ceiling in the dinning room and kitchen, also have a beautiful sunset garden mural in the yoga studio. The panchakarma treatments were so relaxing, i felt so refreshed after them, and it was very convenient for them to be right next to my room. to I would definitely recommend this place of healing for anyone looking to get away.
