Reviewed 15 January 2017

I wouldn't change anything about samahita, and the fact that other guests are consistenly returning to the resort speaks volume. Besides the world class ashtanga teaching, samahita caters to your needs, the food is wonderful, the resort has an amazing flow that will help you deepen your yoga practice and disconnect from your daily life.

The vegetarian food is excellent, the massages are very nice and I have met great people in this place (including samahita's employees). I really liked the two yoga workshops I had with the 2...

If you are looking to do a yoga retreat, detox or other health & wellness program - Samahita is a great place to be! It's not a luxury hotel (self-serve water & put away your dishes), but a true wellness retreat (no alcohol or smoking). They serve buffet brunch & dinner filled with yummy vegetarian/vegan options.
