Ayurveda vacation in a dreamlike resort.

My Ayurveda vacation was different than expected

Stephanie Andrea Z.

March 2024

solo | 50 to 59 years | 4 - 8 days

The vacation per se was very relaxing, but I was disappointed with the overall package - especially the Ayurveda retreat. My room was very small and the bathroom was simply not suitable for a woman; the mirror was useless as it lacked the necessary lighting. The consultations and treatments were ok, but definitely not up to the standard I am used to from other Ayurveda retreats!

We were more than satisfied!

The location and ambience of the UTMT complex, the professionalism and friendliness of the staff and especially the quality of the Ayurveda spa convinced us.

Very good Ayurveda treatment and great food.

Everyone is very eager, responds to changes daily, offered tours and drinks and food prices, however, extortionate prices, yoga instructor did not ask about previous damage and has held every day the same program - this is not at all
