    I can't wait to go back and I know I will. I stayed for 6 nights and was taken away with how helpful everyone was, the amazing food, the sweet cottages and the serenity. It was like being taken out of the wild, crazy world...More

    We went to BBI retreat for yoga retreat with a group. Everything about the BBI retreat was excellent - accommodation, food, Ayurvedic massage, the staff. Looking forward to returning to this patch of paradise soon.

    It was a good opportunity for me to rest and meditate, to eat healthily, to experience a part of traditional India, and all of that surrounded by a gentle and always smiling staff. The rooms are lovely, and the bank by the river is indescribable.
