    ‘Next time I stay longer’ Original review (automatically translated)

    As always a great experience. Nice people and great yoga classes. This time it was only enough for 2 days - but that's not enough to come down and relax. show more

    • Hotel in general
      Three former spa clinics, which were rebuilt on their own. Not very chic but lovingly.
    • Service and hospitality
      Everyone is incredibly nice and helpful. But it must be clear that this is not a classic hotel, but an ashram, so much must be done yourself.
    • Cuisine
      The food tastes great to me and I like it very much. Only the presentation of the dishes could be better - they deserved that.
    • Treatments and programmes
      Huge offer and very good yoga teachers!
