Omega is a large campus which runs various self-development and wellness workshops. The environment is beautiful, next to a little lake. It is not luxury accommodation, but no one really goes for that. The food is adequate (could be improved). The rooms are fine, except for one thing: the smoke detector, which emitted a continuous bright green beam of light...

I loved everything about omega. I went for a week long training and brought my daughter with me. She attended the children's program which complemented my program schedule. She loved the kids program which was a relief as she'd never done anything like that before. The energy is contagious and both she and I left as better versions of ourselves....

I went to Omega for a rest and relaxation weekend with my 16 year old daughter. It was fabulous for our purposes, but it is all in the eye of the beholder. If you want a comfortable room to sleep in and fantastic food served beautifully, do NOT consider coming here. The accommodations are very basic. The food is buffet...

This place is where you need to be to get away from it all. This time I had to stay off campus which is okay. A bit terrifying to travel back and forth when it is pouring rain and you need to travel back roads. GPS went out a few times. The workshop was fabulous. I was able to walk...

I was here for an Eckhart Tolle retreat not for the accommodations. I had one of the two rooms in a cabin to myself and I shared the bathroom and shower. The room was sparse and simple yet peaceful. I am happy I stayed on the premises so I could easily walk to classes and meals. I loved the solitude....

I went there for a conference and after reading the reviews, decided to stay somewhere else. I am so thankful I did. I saw the room and they were small and very sparse. The shared accommodations required four people sharing a toilet and shower. One woman had a mouse in her room the first night. The food in the dining...

Omega has a beautiful campus, which is the main draw. Accommodations run the gamut from camping out, to a private room with a/c and heat, and a wide range in between. Years ago, this was a Jewish summer camp, and many of the buildings are from that period. My room was the second to highest/most expensive level: a single room...

I am retired and was not ready for what the "dormitory" provided at Omega--a monk's cell with no place for much more than a back-pack. The price may be relatively low, but one suspects they still make plenty of money given the bare bones accommodations, troughs of veggies and tofu that turn the stomach in two days, and dizzy "classes"...

The place is loaded with double standards. masquerades as blue but is undeniably red. Caters to young people particularly with regards to employment. If you go there stay off campus the management is way to nosy about your personnel business.

Visited Omega for a week long conference. Accommodations were ok, simple but fairly comfortable. The food however is mostly terrible. I often eat vegetarian and love tofu - however after DAYS of nothing but tofu and tempeh my friend and I desperately left to find another source of protein - Taco Tuesday pushed us over the edge including indigestion.
