Few days full of happiness and love I spend 5 days in this beautiful place. 3 years ago I met Dr. Suboth the first time, so I decided to join his Yoga Retreat. He is humorous as well as spiritual intellectual. I really enjoyed his classes and small discussion rounds in the evening. He also took me to his university class, which was a nice experience. His wife Kopila is such a cutie. She is an awesome cook and does a really good massage. She takes care of you like a mum. Actually I would like to stay longer over there, but there is always a next time. Thank you all!

New Location is Perfect! I stayed for 8 days and 7 nights at their new location which opened a month ago. During my stay we also visited the old accommodation, which was old and a bit run down – so I understand the previous reviews! The rooms and facilities were all new and very clean – like staying in a hotel. The food was incredible, with the opportunity to learn how to cook. The place is run by a local family, and everyone is very warm and accommodating. The classes are very different to the Western style of yoga, suitable for any level – and you really get an opportunity to learn the philosophy and practice. I definitely felt very refreshed and gave me a new perspective. Everyday you get to experience a different treatment – which are high quality.
