    ‘Ayurvedic treatments great, rooms and facilities run down.’ Original review (automatically translated)

    The food was delicious, but it was in the style of a canteen and had nothing to do with a restaurant! Very basic and uncomfortable. ... in addition: you had to queue for a long time to eat and if you were unlucky, you had to wait again until "replenishment" came... it was all kind of stressful. show more

    • Hotel in general
      Asbestos. Carpets that were easily 30-40 years old and quite disgusting. Rooms simple, reasonably clean. Old and not up to date.
    • Service and hospitality
      Staff was friendly. Especially in the treatments for Ayurveda.
    • Cuisine
      Vegan. Healthy, delicious. Restaurant extremely uncomfortable.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      Spa area well designed, although not very sophisticated.
    • Treatments and programmes
      Massages were good and soothing. Staff very friendly.

    ‘A wonderful and active break’ Original review (automatically translated)

    The treatments were carried out professionally and carefully, and I was able to develop spiritually and physically. The food was wholesome, filling, organic and regional. Two meals were absolutely sufficient for me. The offers were mostly well organized and I was positively surprised by the variety. I found the help in the form of karma yoga in the association to be okay, I cleaned my room myself. I can only rate the organization and communication during my trip positively. Guests and staff were open, polite and friendly. I would love to come back! show more

    • Hotel in general
      Clean, bright, a bit run down. My room was simple, but absolutely fine.
    • Service and hospitality
      My requests were dealt with quickly, there was even a toothbrush set at reception because I had forgotten my toothbrush. The staff are very polite and friendly.
    • Cuisine
      The food exceeded my expectations: Ayurvedic, sattvic, organic and mostly regional.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      I was mainly in the Ayurveda area, and I also booked a singing bowl massage. Everywhere was clean and comfortable. The loungers were heated and precious oils and therapeutic bowls were used.
    • Treatments and programmes
      Everything was professional, the staff nice and polite.

    ‘Many wonderful and new experiences’ Original review (automatically translated)

    There was a lot on offer. I think there was something for everyone. Yoga in all its facets was represented. show more

    • Hotel in general
      You can't imagine a real hotel here. These are former clinics from the 1970s that are run as ashrams. It has a lot of youth hostel charm. So it's simple and you don't get served, but it's down-to-earth and good.
    • Service and hospitality
      You are not served here like in a hotel or restaurant. However, there are always competent people you can speak to and they are very friendly and helpful. I was given a very warm welcome and had a nice guest advisor.
    • Cuisine
      Here we had typical yogic food. Simple, but good and delicious. The salad buffet in particular was very varied. Everything was very lightly seasoned, but you had plenty of options to add your own seasoning.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      I did not use the spa area.
    • Treatments and programmes
      There were a lot of offers to practise yoga. Sometimes the decision was very difficult and unfortunately I couldn't physically do as much as I wanted. The individual classes were very easy to do. The instructions were easy to understand and many of the trainers had a great charisma.

    ‘Intensive yoga practice, varied program’ Original review (automatically translated)

    An intensive yoga week surrounded by friendly people. The accommodation is more functional than comfortable. The vegan food is healthy and delicious, but if you are not quite on time to the dining room, the pots are often already empty. Nevertheless: good value for money. show more

    • Hotel in general
      Three huge houses in a beautiful location, surrounded by nature and yet close to the town. Yoga rooms are very pleasant, people are very friendly, bedrooms and bathrooms are simple.
    • Service and hospitality
      Everyone is very friendly, but the first time you could use a little more instruction to get around.
    • Cuisine
      Healthy vegan food, usually also very tasty. Unfortunately, there is not always enough of the delicious things, so you have to hurry to be quite punctual in the dining room, where there is then a big crowd.
    • Treatments and programmes
      Great variety of offers around yoga and meditation, lectures etc.
