Mark, Switzerland - Dec 2016
‘’A journey to self-discovery’’ is a path I am following every day, but being in such a privileged space, where nature is preserved and alive, where the energy is peaceful, where the staff is mindful, smiling and calm, where yoga and massage are deep and professional and where everything transpire the ‘’yoga’’ true mindset. What best could I find to awake and clean my body and let my soul be! I am deeply grateful to the staff, the management and the creator of this magnificent space. With love and gratitude.
Jason, UK - Dec 2016

Veronica, Slovenia - Dec 2016
This is my very first yoga retreat and the bar has been set very high. How can anything overcome this? I love the little details, my room gets cleaned while I am at yoga class, shoes always find me wherever I leave them… food has been amazing. I wish I could stay much much longer. Thank you.
G. Sexton, U.K - Dec 2016
For my third stay at Shreyas I was once again spoiled by the lovely staff. As always they were respectful and professional. The food was consistently wonderful and I will be back. Thank you.
Candice, Marie Fox, ELuxe Magazine. (Australia & UK) - Dec 2016
There are not enough words to describe the experience I’ve had here at Shreyas! I can truly feel the love here! The beautiful energy and love can be felt I the food, the staff, the surrounding, it’s in everything here! I cannot want to come here again and also cannot wait for the world to see my article/review about this incredible and loving home that’s here for everyone to share! One big happy and loving family! All my love to you.
Chelvendra, Australia - Nov 2016
This is my third stay and I will be back.:)) Most important point of differentiation is the CARE shown by all members of the Shreyas team. I have learnt a great deal, I have had a quiet time and recognised myself. Thanks to all members of a great team. God bless.
Geetika & Manu, India - Nov 2016
Shreyas is an amazingly simple yet very elegant retreat that creates and orchestrates an environment for relaxation and awakening. All team members are exemplary in their attitude and willingness to serve and make one’s stay memorable. All this cannot be possible without a very smart and benevolent leadership by the top management and who run the place. Will recommend the place highly.
Gargi Ma, Janaka, Lakshmi & Narayana Canada - Nov 2016
Only the best things to say – we have in particular never seen such pure staff serving so perfectly. Having been to several ayurvedic resorts/treatment centres, we can confidently say ‘’Jai Shreyas’’.
Odette, Canada - Nov 2016
Iam going back with so many tools to continue my evolution because of all of you. I felt extremely well supported with amazingly kind and knowledgeable people. Extreme gratitude to everyone for a transformative stay.

Curtis, USA - Nov 2016
A great journey of self discovery’’ it was! I did the silent retreat for 6 nights and am glad I did. Loved the exquisite cuisine, the tranquil grounds and garden, the massages and most of all, the yoga and meditation. It is the caring and attentive staff who make Shreyas what it is. Staying at Shreyas has enriched my life . . . much thanks!
Ben Slow, Singapore - Oct 2016
To all the staff of Shreyas, thank you for grace and kindness. I leave here to reset and heal and you have helped tremendously with that. The yoga and meditation sessions have helped me to focus the mind on what is important. The food, service and hospitality has revitalized my spirit. The kind, warm nature of all the staff has been wonderful. Thank you, I’ll be back.
Bijal Shah, India - Oct 2016
Shreyas, the awesome kept secret of Bangalore! Awesome, superb, fantastic.
Seem & Rostov, Rene & Amita, India - Oct 2016
Dearest Rucha, from the time we spoke, your graciousness and hospitality and ability to understand the very specific needs of the guest was felt. It had a cascading effect on the way the staff, service and food of Shreyas operate. In today’s day and age, you definitely are a notch higher!!! Will be back.

Kalpana, Ventakesh & Sid, India - Oct 2016
Dear Shreyas team, this is our fourth or fifth visit to Shreyas and hopefully we will be back again. We can’t say what it is that brings us back again and again – the awesome food, the wonderful ambience or the super attentive staff. There’s some magic about this place that’s hard to pin down – making us feel welcome, relaxed and is a world apart! Thank you once again and look forward to our next trip here.
Kalpana, Ventakesh & Sid, Bengaluru.
Damien, India - Sept 2016
This is written on behalf of Aparna Gurumurhy, Pauline Juckes and Damien Miller. We found Shreyas to be enchanting. Everywhere you look, you see beauty – a feast for the eyes. And of course the peace and quiet, and soothing green environment made for a refreshing change. Finally, the food is nothing short of awesome. Healthy and awesome! A unique combination. Thank you to all the elegant and gracious staff who make Shreyas so special. All the best.
Shoko, Japan - Sept 2016
Thank you so much for everything you guys have done during my stay. This is the best place to relax and recharge in the world. I definitely will come back next year and hopefully I can bring my mom with me that time. I am sure I will miss yoga class and food when I go back to Tokyo… Arigato!!
Hester, Netherlands - Sept 2016
Dear people of Shreyas, you’ve made our stay so fantastic! The staff is so incredibly friendly, we have never experienced that anywhere else in the world! Thank you so much. Jane & Hester. Thank you so much for making this stay with my daughter unforgettable.:))
Stephanie, Germany - Sept 2016

Gowri, India - Sept 2016
Dear team, thank you so much for making my stay so comfortable. I loved all my 3 days here; the food was excellent, the treatments were amazing and I have taken a lot from this place. Will be back soon.
Suresh, India - Sept 2016
Dear Shreyas folk, service is awesome. Staff is very attentive. Yoga teachers are very compassionate. Mr. Balasunder gave me good yoganidra sessions, I transcended into swarga. Dr.Shaji has turned into a Buddha, always smiling and spreading goodness; similarly his chela, Dr.Arun. Some suggestions: doors are making a lot of noise while closing; moisturiser should be kept in room. Some of the taps are not working or very tight. Great stay, will recommend. Warm regards.
Stephen, U.K - Sept 2016
Thank you all for a very special stay. I have thoroughly enjoyed all aspects. I have gained insight into aspects of yoga and meditation. The team at Shreyas are just wonderful. All of the team make you feel at ease. The massage treatments were given with care and comfort. I enjoyed also the meal times which were a wonderful opportunity to meet many people from all parts of the world. The food was extra special. Alas, my time at Shreyas has come to an end even though I caught ‘Shreyas fever’.:)) Thanks.
Vilas, India - Sept 2016
It is a very nice place to come again and again. No complaints to write here, we enjoyed.
Sudha & Bharath, USA - Sept 2016
Dear staff members or should I say family members!! It has been a very excellent stay beyond my imagination. After spending 2 weeks in other parts of India, this was a very peaceful stay. I really.. really enjoyed yoga. Food has been delicious – getting very personalised care and love from all the staff members – which makes this place very unique!! Cooking class was great, we will come back.
M.Srinivas, India - Sept 2016
It is an excellent place, out of the world. Very well trained staff and they are very hospitable. Your yoga is amazing, highly experienced teachers. Finally I want to say that I feel like coming back, I think its given full answer.

Wonderful and unforgettable stay. Thank you for everything and special thanks to ‘Rita’ the wonderful lovely yoga instructor.
Victoria, Germany - Sept 2016
Thank you for welcoming us into the Shreyas community with such generosity of spirit, eagerness to heal and kindness to aloe people to find their own Shreyas journey. Being alongside such smiling, friendly staff and seeing where wellness is developed and nurtured for everyone is very inspiring. Shreyas has exceeded my expectations, allowed me the time and space I so desperately needed and left me feeling stronger, lighter and healthier in more ways than one. Take care.
Varun & Nirupa, India - Sept 2016
The ambience, staff and peace at Shreyas is unparalleled. It’s a delight to come back and meet the same staff year after year, one of Bengaluru’s best kept secrets.
Alison, UK - Sept 2016
My friend recommended Shreyas to me. She loved it and it has exceeded my expectations beyond that. For me what makes it special is the equilibrium you achieve between health, relaxation, fitness and food in a beautiful environment. The Shreyas colleagues are your biggest asset – it feels like they are welcoming you into their community about which they care so much and want you to experience with them. Without exception they are equal partners in your stay. The attention to detail and zero mistakes or confusion is super notable too, as is that priority seems customer care rather than making money, I am definitely coming back.
Stewart, UK - Sept 2014
My first visit for 10 nights, wow! The entire staff are amazing. The food is excellent, and I am not a vegetarian. The yoga instruction is fantastic, even when in group sessions attention is paid to each individual’s requirement. I came with an open mind and had an experience of a life time, and will be back. Thanks to all at Shreyas.
Moty, UK - Sept 2016
Another amazing 9 days at Shreyas, m 6th visit in the last 6 years. The journey just gets better and better. Thanks, team Shreyas for making my time here yet again unforgettable. Warm regards.
Shripati & Soumya, India - Sept 2016

Shreyas has been more than I could have imagined, exceptional in every way. The staff has really made my experience here perfect, anticipating my every need even before I do. Beautiful place. Thank you!
Sally, Australia - August 2016
I am in paradise. I was told I would love Shreyas and it is beyond my expectations. The staff are wonderfully efficient and caring, food fabulous, and a feeling of incredible calm and peace. My stay far too short but I will return.
Lucy Charlesworth, UK - August 2016
A lovely 48 hours – a shame I cannot stay longer! But the place and the staff made it feel as if I was here longer. Very attentive staff, beautiful food, and wonderful serenity. Thank you!
Arun & Gurvinder, UAE - August 2016
Dear Shreyas team, in the last 2 days we have learnt a lot about ourselves. Everything at Shreyas is so peaceful and serene which makes one wonder – the real meaning of life. We loved our stay, it was great to get away from the hustle & bustle of the city life and come in contact with our inner self and nature. The staff were all amazing and kind. Loved our sessions of yoganidra and pranayama with Ms. Rita, wish we got to spend more time listening to her. Thank you Shreyas . . . . we will see you soon.
Madhu, India - August 2016
Dear all, it was indeed a journey of self discovery. I would recommend it to anybody and everyone. It has been one of the best vacations I have ever taken. Totally mind blowing. The staff, food and service and the place itself has been enjoyable and the very best. Thank you all, see you next year.
Kriti & Harsha, UK - August 2016
Dear all, it was amazing experience! This was our first retreat and the experience was excellent; the yoga teacher, Heather Morton, is the best! We have learnt lot in the 7 days then we have probably over the years. The food was out of this world; never had such a variety of vegetarian dishes even though we are vegetarians. Overall experience was great; Krishna, Santosh & Dinesh have more than exceeded our expectations that is not to say that the others weren’t. We just came across them more than others. But all the staff are very polite and obliging and very well trained! The trekking experience was made a lot easier by the staff who accompanied us, i.e. Mani, Prakash & Krishna! The trip to Mysore was very enjoyable too. It will be sad to leave Shreyas but looking forward to coming back soon! Thank you to all the staff!
Nancy & John, Canada - August 2016
We had a wonderful time! This was our first retreat and we could not have asked for a better experience. Heather Morton is a great yoga teacher, and we learned a lot! The retreat itself is so peaceful – very much worth its reputation! Thanks!
Alexandra, Switzerland - August 2016
Dear all, it was an amazing time, even better than the explanation of the website. The stay was a good mix of yoga, relaxing and meeting great people. Thanks a lot and I will definitely come back one day. All the best.
Meera & Alex, Hong Kong - August 2016
Coming back to Shreyas was just what we needed. Excellent stay as always. All staff members are so in sync with the yoga principle, food is made with such fine energies that you feel at peace with every mouthful. It’s truly hard to find such consistency in today’s time. Until the next visit keep excelling. Thank you as always.
P.S: Thank you for making our daughter’s birthday and our anniversary so special. The cake was yummy!
Dinesh Anand, India - August 2016
Could not have been a better 3 nights we have had in a long time. Overall excellent, wonderful staff – we go home completely refreshed! Thank you.
Daya & Henry, Sweden - August 2016
Dear Shreyas team, thank you for making our stay a giving and an excellent experience! The best we have experienced so far in terms of ambience, wellness, service, food and everything! We are coming back! Best wishes!!
Meera & Venu, India - August 2016
It has been a pleasure to visit Shreyas for more than ten years. Over the years we have seen that the core premise of Shreyas which is ‘well – being’ has been kept absolutely intact. The dulcet sounds of the birds chirping and the wafting breeze from the myriad trees have been a beautiful constant. The immaculately maintained pool, the eucalyptus tinged wet towels, the lovely smells of the flower gardens and the almost magical way in which your shoes are turned around have made us feel the same warmth over the years. We will always be happy to return to such an abode to calm our minds and soothe our frayed nerves. Thank you for continuing the Shreyas Excellence.
Cecilie, Denmark - August 2016
After 3 weeks of work in Delhi, Mumbai, Jaipur and Bangalore in rain and dirt I was so pleased to end my trip at Shreyas which gave me a little relaxation and me time. I would’ve loved to stay longer but I need to get back. The food was amazing and the staff was so polite and welcoming, and like small fairytale elf’s they made your room without you noticing it and turned around your shoes. Amazing! Thanks for giving me these 2-3 days of joy.
Sanjay & Seema, Uttar Pradesh - August 2016
Dear Shreyas team, it was a wonderful endeavour to have a stay at Shreyas. We stayed for 15 days and felt so much like home with all the warmth and excellence of the staff serving here. We are really grateful to Dr. Shaji and Dr. Ajitha for their treatments. They treated my husband of a great danger which our lifestyle has given him. All the kitchen staff was also very hospitable, the minute we asked, the food preparation were ready for us without a single no. Rita was such a good guide in teaching us yoga and personal counselling also was very good. We learnt so many new things we will surely adapt in our life style. Dr. Arun was always present for us whenever we needed any help regarding anything. The office staff was very cooperative. We could have wonderful temple visits with the help of the staff. We are really thankful to Mr. Balaji for arranging the beautiful stay for us. Above all thanks to the owner of this wonderful retreat which he has created with intellect and poise. God bless him. Thank s a lot.
Ashan & Shalini, Sri Lanka - August 2016
Dear Shreyas family, our heartfelt thanks for the most tranquil and peaceful of our lives! We came to Shreyas with an open mind, without any expectations or experience in yoga and meditation, and what a life changing experience it has been! It has been a beautiful transformation in our mind, body and soul. The staff have been beyond excellent in their kindness and attentiveness. They embody the calm and compassion that their daily yoga brings them and it is wonderful to see how everyone lives and incorporates mindfulness in their daily routine. A special thank you to our dearest and old friend Leesha for making sure we had that extra special care. Thank you everyone again for everything. We will be back.
Anna, Rickie & Mark, UAE - July 2016
Dear Shreyas team, the stay here at Shreyas has been one of a kind experience. The staff here are very welcoming and it makes me feel as if I was back home. The activities that were provided were amazing eg: community service, yoga, meditation etc. Yoga is something I would definitely continue especially as it helped with my flexibility and the breathing technique with concentration (which helps at school). I came and learned that to be fit, not everything has to be about sports. Now to the main part, food. I am definitely a food lover. Also, a very picky person. Coming to Shreyas has taught me to like other varieties of food. Coming here helped me relax more and to take my mind off studying. Back to the point, food is great. The right amount of proportions, organic food and delicious desserts. I am sad to leave this place but also exited to share and continue the things I have learned here. I am definitely looking forward to coming back.
Delphine, Paris - July 2016
Dear Shreyas team, thank for so much for this nice experience. It was my first experience with yoga and I do not know how I was able to live without it! Thank you so much for so nicely welcoming me, a very pleasant breath into nature. Hope tobe able to come back soon.
Ritu & Alok, UK - July 2016
Dear Shreyas team, thanks for the wonderful stay! We really enjoyed the fod and the ambience. The service was also phenomenal and we plan on coming back for a rejuvenating and relaxing stay! Stay blessed.
Jyoti & Peter, Hong Kong - July 2016
Dear Shreyas team, it is a great pleasure to come back here. We look forward to more visits here. The hospitality is fantastic!! With love.
Sara & Laura, USA - July 2016
Thank you so much or yet another amazing stay with you! It’s lovely here – as always – and even though we only stayed for 2 days – we feel relaxed and brought back to life! We hope to come and stay soon again. With love.
Sam Gee, U.K - July 2016
Dear all thank you for a really lovely stay. I was only here for two nights but you made me feel very at home and centered for my every need. Namaste! The yoga pavilion is fantastic, such a lovely open space.
Sarah and Susan, India - July 2016
Having lived in Bangalore for three years, we are so happy that we made the time come to Shreyas and only wished we had discovered it earlier on. It has such a tranquil and peaceful ambience, the service is exceptional and the staff are lovely. The yoga setting was incredible and we really enjoyed the morning session, it was worth getting up for! Thanks.
Vijay, Sharmila, Sunaina, Ekta & Prisha, India - July 2016
Dear Shreyas Staff, Thank you for taking excellent care of all of us during our stay. Your place is a unique experience that I will never forget. The food, hospitality & spirituality of this place is outstanding. I love the farm to table concept. Also amazed at the cleanliness of the place. The place has positive vibrations and is sure to change life of anyone who visits. Thank you!
Niculin, Switzerland - July 2016
Thank you very much indeed for the good time here at Shreyas. The 4th time for me here. I was the only guest this week here. I was like the prince and chance was with me. Everyone here gave his best to help me to recover from busy life. I could learn many things at the same time Thank you once more and hope to see you again soon.
Angelique, India - July 2016
Had the most relaxing stay at this most excellent facility. Will write a longer review at Trip Advisor, but I just wanted to take a moment to thank you and your staff for such a wonderful, wonderful stay.
Imtiaz, UAE - July 2016
Great stay. It’s not the product that makes one’s stay; it’s the people – the staff and the teachers. It’s an intuitive process rather than a formula for one and all. The place to come if you want to feel centered and spiritual - irrespective of your baggage - mental, you’ll leave rejuvenated – happier – comfortable.
Sneha, India - July 2016
To all those who I met and many others who I didn’t see. Thank you for the good times. The days you filled with pleasure. Thank you for the fond memories. And for feelings I’ll always treasure. This is my second trip here and it’s even more special one. I had no plans to come here but I think this was just meant to be. Each one of you here has given me the most thoughtful gift – your time and for that, I am very grateful. It takes immense amount of hard work to maintain such a beautiful place. Thank you for ensuring everything was smooth. I never saw anyone entering my room nut every time I came back, the room was clean, the bed was made, and there were flowers. Food was served as soon as I reached the dining hall. I have no idea how all of this is done. I call it magic and each one of you is a magician. To all my teachers, you guys have been amazing and have nurtured my mind so much that it will stay with me always. Thank you for being patient and listening to all that I had to say. If I had t put one word for this stay, I’d call it enriching. I came here with some expectations and they have been far exceeded. To the chef and everyone in the dining hall, thank you for making and serving food with so much love. I will keep coming here more often but until then, thank you. You all are a family. Love!
Zakiyya, USA - July 2016
Dear Shreyas team, you have made my first stay in India memorable! Everything was wonderful and I feel much more relaxed, calm, and peaceful after my stay. I will definitely be back again! Thank you all.
Helen, UK - July 2016
Thank you for a peaceful and therauptic stay, we were very stressed on arrival, and the entire team have done a great job helping us relax. Particularly love the Thai massage in the pavilion, and the morning yoga with the sound of the birds. Thank you.
Kat and Dev, Russia - July 2016
Dear Shreyas team, I am new to India, but I always dreamt of going to yoga retreat and finally I came across your resort online. After talking to your team on the phone, I was very touched by your individual and flexible approach and was confident about coming over. Thank you very much! Food, pool, movies, service, room, yoga – everything was excellent! Loved the overall experience of Shreyas retreat. Hope to come back real soon. Thank you!!
Holly and Janet, USA - July 2016
Dearest Shreyas team, my only regret is that I leave from here so soon, but I have no doubt that I‘ll come back. This place is irresistible and unique – it is truly something else. I was told on my tour of the grounds that it takes at least a week here to truly experience it. I didn’t understand at first, but now I see that it takes a few days to really get a sense for and appreciate the way that the community functions, and the way the Shreyas family can truly support you. It is hard to see the bigger picture when you spend the first few days of your time, wide-eyed at how wonderful everything is. From the incredible amenities (the beautiful swimming pool, steam room etc.) to the life-changing yoga and meditation classes (a million thanks to my teachers), to the fresh flowers that smelled like heaven that I found, new and fresh in my room every day, to the way that someone turned my shoes around every time I entered my room. I have never in my life felt so well cared-for. I cannot thank the Shreyas team enough for the incredible good, amazing experiences, over- the- top hospitality an genuine care that I have experienced in the past few days. This was truly an experience that I will never forget – a few days that felt like a dream. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Johannes & Julia, Austria - July 2016
Dear Shreyas team, now, after this much, we are a bit sad because we can’t believe that all this is true. It was like a dream to be here at this amazing place. We felt like a part of the big family.:)) From the farmer to the cook, from the yoga teacher to the manager, every person was polite, helpful and lovely!! The food was great, we liked it very much… and soooo healthy!! One of the best things are the cooking session, the yoga lessons and the massages but, also all parts of this week were amazing!!:)) We hope to come back, it was soooo beautiful!!! Thank you so much for this experience! Namaste! P.S.: Perfect honeymoon, loved it.
Angela, Singapore - July 2016
Thank you for a wonderful retreat, everything was perfect. I wish was staying longer. Thanks to all the staff who made it so special, namaste!
Jen, USA - July 2016
Dear Shreyas family, how to put into words such an amazing experience?! Everything was beyond expectation and beautiful. I have so much to thank you for, so here’s a partial list: Thank you for:
*the beautiful porch to listen to the rain and read.
*yoga classes that were challenging but encouraging
*massages that made me forget my challenging yoga classes…
*meditation made all the better with the lovely outdoors joining us in the practice!
*always turning my shoes around.
*bringing me enough breakfast tea to keep me energised!
*amazing food… wow… I’m going to have to fast when I get home.
*the escorted walks to and from dinner so I didn’t lose my way and fall in the lotus pond…
*all the amazing flowers everywhere. I have never seen so many flowers, beautiful!
* the beautiful gardens – always something lovely to see.
*always being so kind and generous, even though I’m sure some of you were having challenging days of your own.
*the garden, such a wonderful space.
*the tree house in the garden… really felt like a slice of paradise (oh, and there were flowers there, too!).
*allowing me to take my tea and sit outside at the end of meals.
*the much needed time away that turned into the week made out of dreams. Namaste & love.
Shreya, India - July 2016

Neha, Hongkong - May 2016
Thank you to all the staff at Shreyas – this was a wonderfully relaxing, peaceful and calming experience with phenomenal yoga classes and treatments. The staff’s attention to detail and customer service is second to none – each guest is taken care of so well. The setting here is stunning and the perfect backup to a yoga retreat.
Katig, UAE - May 2016
Thank you so much for a wonderful, relaxing, calming few days. Shreyas and staff have become family.
Sarah & David, Australia - May 2016
Shreyas delivered far more than we could have expected. An amazing week with fantastic interactions and learning. Sad to leave but we will be back!! Thank you all.
Linda & Neil, USA - May 2016
We always look forward to our restorative time at Shreyas! This time we set a record with 11+ hours of sleep Saturday night. Yoga was fabulous! Meditation was great! Treatments were excellent and the food was delicious, fresh and creative as always. All of the staff is simply outstanding from our welcome greeting to saying farewell. The kitchen and dining room team is simply amazing with their attentiveness and creativity – the tables are always very special indoors and outdoors! Dr. Arun is very good, Ramakant is amazing and we loved our visit with Balaji this time. It is also fun to meet people who find Shreyas – this time from S. Africa and the U.S (like us). Thank you team Shreyas for helping us have the best ever recharge. With our gratitude and thanks – most warmly.
Bijal & Tanushree, India - May 2016
Shreyas has been a thoroughly rejuvenating experience for us. We had heard lots of nice things from friends and family but our stay far exceeded our expectations. Please keep up the good work. We look forward to coming again!
Julie, Australia - May 2016
Shreyas is a truly divine place, in every sense. This has been the most restorative and peaceful two weeks of my life. My deepest appreciation and blessings to the whole Shreyas team who excel at everything they do with a smile and an open heart. (On that more people in the wider world could do that . . . .). An outstanding experience. And I long to return to experience the exciting new dimension of the spa!
Ankol, India - May 2016
Shreyas has been fantastic as a whole. Thank you for everything. Ramakant and Bala have been such positive influences. I will return . . . . but for that I must leave. See you soon!!! Lots of love.
Leigh, Catherine & Iris, Canada - May 2016
We three family members enjoyed ourselves immensely and our visit exceeded our expectations. Our yoga practice improved and through the caring instructors, we were committed daily to the sessions – chanting. Yoganidra was remarkable. Our spa treatments were sometimes unusual but always therauptic. The doctors were especially caring. Practising in the outdoor pavilion during a rainstorm will be a lifelong highlight. All our thanks for this exceptional experience, and please everyone stay well. We hope to return. Namaste.

Dear Shreyas A team, this is my 2nd stay and it was even better than my first – I had to revisit and so pleased that I did. Feeling familiar added to my peace – there were no expectations or concerns as I knew it was going to be perfect. Thanks for your overwhelming warmth – your generosity – your spirit – on all levels I leave Shreyas feeling as though I have reached a little deeper into my soul – that I have peeled another layer. I will return to Australia with strength and understanding. Your ever ready and instant support helps me on my life’s journey. Thanks for your words dear Bala and dear Rita – every light and Namaste.

We had an amazing stay! Exactly what we were hoping for and much more. The staff was so polite, friendly and welcoming at all times. They accommodated our every whim! The food was spectacular from breakfast through to dinner. Yoga was taken to another level for us – I finally touched my toes and did a head stand!

Thank you to everybody who made this stay so special.

Ramya, Anya & Kannan, Mala – Switzerland - Feb 2016
Dearest Shreyas team, rarely does one come across a gem of a place like Shreyas, it really live up to its name of being all round. Kudos to you. Following areas struck me in particular and helped me enjoy to the most: # Staff: From the booking and reservations, to the kitchen to gardening to yoga teachers to drivers . . . . wow – professionalism, kindness, anticipation and solution orientation . . . . and just fantastic service. Made the stay extremely special. # Yoga: The various teachers are so distinct, yet very competent. They take the time to help you make progress. Great! # Agenda: Wellness consultation, agenda, structure; yet the flexibility to fine tune it. Made my stay very personally fulfilling and achieve outcomes I sought. Total relaxation and awareness - achieved. # Spirituality and values: Special congratulations to the founder, from creating this haven – wellness of the mind, body and the soul; and training for staff and welfare for them – can see from how teamed the staff are . . . . and simple and powerful principles of vegetarian, alcohol and smoke free ambience; religious yet not dogmatic . . . .. and very inclusive ‘’sarve bhavantu sukhinaha”. # Accommodation: Earthy, plush, warm – the rooms, décor all just ‘’fit’’. Extremely comfortable, spacious and luxurious. The place just feels so appropriately done up. # Food: Local cuisine, yummy, healthy, diverse! Excellent, what can I say. In all, all these elements helped us have a fantastic stay. I leave here feeling happy and blissful, and hope to carry the energy well beyond the compound here. Looking forward to our return! Much love and thanks.
David, Australia - Feb 2016
To the exceptional team at Shreyas. Hard to put to words the experience I have had at Shreyas but it has been a life changing experience of great depth and outstanding quality of guest services. Please do not change a thing. Back soon.
Astha, India - Feb 2016
To the amazing family at Shreyas, I don’t even know where to begin from. The booking over the phone with Mr. Balaji, who made everything seem so easy and welcomed my last minute requests and understood my confusion. To Mr. Ramakant who was super polite and extra helpful, the food really is the best I have eaten and so perfect and healthy. Cherished my food and loved the idea of getting the recipes. The chef is an icing on the most delicious cake! SHREYAS – WAY TO GO – LOVELY AND REJUVENATING. The best part is, every one, I mean EVERY MEMBER of this community runs to help you.
Barbara, UK - Feb 2016
To all the wonderful people who make up Shreyas team, I want to say thank you once again for a perfect stay here – it has simply been divine, peaceful, restorative and even my great 1-2-1 sessions with Ramakant (nicknamed death by abdomen!) had their moments of complete bliss! I have been here so many times and I have never been disappointed. I am already looking forward to next year and being met at the airport by Ponnappa’s wonderful welcome smile! A very special thank you to the chef for creating such wonderful meals – all served with extreme care and respect by Santosh and his brilliant team – Neelkamal, Dinesh and Rabin, all looked after me so sensitively during my 5 days silence. With love to you all.
Seda, Istanbul - Feb 2016

This is my second visit to Shreyas. I’ll be back again. As far as I am concerned that is all that needs to be said!:))
Jane, London - Feb 2016
By luck I found Shreyas: the magazine article; the weekend of 13.2 googling; the e-visa sought on 14.2 and got on 15.2; Shreyas’ last week before it became full! I thank my luck. Shreyas and the people who work here have made it an Outstanding First Yoga Retreat in India. My goal is to be happy and healthy; Shreyas, its staff and its outstanding yoga teachers helped me achieve that. Many guests have been several times before. I understand why! Thank you Shreyas, yours.
Priya & Rajen Ruparell, USA - Feb 2016
Dear Shreyas, thank you for an amazing and wonderful stay. What an experience! The facilities are fantastic, but it is the food and people that make this place very special. We will most definitely return. With love.

Lucy & Chris, U.K - Feb 2016
I cannot thank you enough for all of the kindness you have extended to me during my few days stay at Shreyas. Having arrived a little exhausted I have received the most beautiful, outstanding care – I cannot thank your Dr. Arun and his team for their wonderful support – it has been so sensitively connected, it is humbling – the massages, the yoga and meditation have been outstanding and thank you to the wonderful staff and the kitchen for their superb meals. Shreyas is a truly unique place with beautiful people – a haven of healing and peace. So many heartfelt thanks.
Anne, Australia - Feb 2016
Thank you and many blessings to such a wonderful team. My heart is heavy as I leave – I shall never forget you. I am off to meditation now but shall write further in the not too distant future. With love.

Shreyas is a beautiful & nurturing place, and I feel very fortunate to have spent this last week here. The service and atmosphere is so personal, you feel as if you are the only person here! Thank you to the outstanding yoga, meditation and pranayama teachers. I feel my practice has really improved so much. Also thanks to the chefs for the lovely food and cooking class, and the lovely waiters who made meal times such a pleasure. I look forward to my next visit!
Andrews & Saju, London - Jan 2016
Andrew and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts, we have had an amazing 7 days here. The beautiful, peaceful surrounds are immaculately maintained. The setting is simply stunning but what really sets Shreyas apart is your wonderful, kind, helpful, knowledgeable staff. Our experience has been truly wonderful, from the warm welcome with fragrant flowers in the early morning to the last fond farewell good byes with new friends that we have made here. We loved our luxurious and stylish room, the yoga hall and the stunning views, the candle lit dinners, the farm, the pool – I could go on and on…. We had come for a culinary experience, we love food and cooking. Rame, Rajan, Venkatesh and Vinod more than exceeded our expectations!!! They were simply superb We must have cooked over 60 dishes, asked hundreds of questions, learnt so much and what fun we had! They were kind, warm, hospitable, and generous and went out of their way to create interesting, healthy and delicious recipes. We were also impressed by the quality of produce, ingredients and the care and attention in the kitchen. The chefs cook everything from scratch using the best ingredients, we were very impressed. They make their own fresh stock for soup every day, fresh coconut milk for reach recipe and many many other details like that. The care and attention, professionalism, passion of the team is just brilliant. They simply love their craft, and are able to impart that to others. We loved our lessons so much we went to Bangalore to but similar items and hope to recreate these dishes at home and remember you with fondness. Thank you!!! We enjoyed the yoga and meditation classes, feel rested and rejuvenated and are inspired to carry on the practice at home. Thank you Dr. Shahuja for your patience, kindness and sensitivity, you have initiated many positive steps for Andrews back issue. Thanks Dr. Arun for ayurvedic consultations, it was highly informative and your suggestions are going to be put into practice at home. Thank you Rucha for your help, and arranging, organising and generally making our stay go smoothly. Thank you to our drivers for the trips to the orphanage and shopping trips. You were both patient, helpful, informative and organised so many small details. Shreyas is a sanctuary from a busy, frenetic, modern world and we both feel rested in body, mind and soul. We also feel inspired and fired up to get into the kitchen and try out these recipes! We hope to have many suppers with friends and families. We will be back soon. Love and best wishes.
Nicholas, London - Jan 2016
Thank you for a wonderful week. The few days I spent in silence were handled very sensitively and with great consideration – nothing is too much trouble here. It is a haven for yoga asanas and meditation. The yoga instruction is outstanding and the yoga hall an exceptionally beautiful place. The massages were special. Bala is a wise teacher. The list could go on. I will be back.
Anita & Andrew, Hong Kong - Jan 2016
It has been a truly wonderful experience. The staff at Shreyas are outstanding – attentive, dedicated, kind and always wanting to help with a smile.

Shagufa, India - Jan 2016

Ben, Australia - Jan 2016
Dear Shreyas team, I feel very grateful to have visited this very special retreat. Shreyas is truly a very unique place that continuously grows more amazing by the day. The service from the team is exceptional and the food is delicious. The ashtanga with Ramakant was awesome, his knowledge and dedication to the practice is first class. I learnt so much about my practice in such a short time. The ayurvedic treatments were fantastic – Anu was excellent. I appreciate all the effort contributed by everyone – you really care and understand how to deliver exceptional customer service.
Puri family, Ireland - Jan 2016
To everyone at Shreyas, this was the perfect place for our family to spend the new year. We found Shreyas to be the most relaxing and peaceful place for all of us to unwind. It is a pleasure to visit a place where every need is anticipated by the most attentive and courteous staff. Every encounter with the staff, whether yoga or meditation has been an unique experience. Look forward to our next visit.

David & Cheryl - Geneva, Suisse Canada & Scotland - Jan 2016
Cheryl and I enjoyed such a wonderful 10 days, from the community session to the cooking lessons, the whole experience was uplifting. Having experienced de-tox programs a few times before, the 7 days program that was prepared here was by far the most tasty and went by so seamlessly. Furthermore, the whole staff were so incredibly welcoming and warm, it was a truly blissful stay for us both. Namaste.
Dave & Patty, UK - Jan 2016
When revisiting places rich in memory one is inevitably made aware of the varied losses caused by time. What is remarkable about this place is that the enchantment has remained unblemished. Our thanks to all of you whose unfailing courtesy was humbling. Some borrowed thoughts:
- We live in this world when we love it – Tagore.
- We see well only with the heart
– Saint Exupery.
- Everything should be made as simple as possible, not simpler – Einstein.
May peace go with you..
Sara & Mark, London - Jan 2016
This was our second stay at Shreyas and definitely won’t be our last! It felt like coming back to see good friends who were all so welcoming and kind and taking a genuine interest in our wellbeing. From the booking process with Balaji, to the careful consideration of Dr. Arun (particularly as I fell and hurt myself on day one!) everybody was wonderful. I would like to name everyone individually but special thanks to Bala, whose words of wisdom will go back to London with us and will change our way of thinking about life. You are all very special people. Good bye for now but see you again, soon!
Fabienne, France - Jan 2016
I have come to this marvellous place, grateful to my family (especially my husband and my sister) and friends that offered me this wonderful gift. What I didn’t know is that I will receive a second gift after coming here. The generosity of all the people at Shreyas, including the generosity of the guests. The kindness of all these people will certainly change my life, I am sure, A huge thanks for that step in my life.
Lara & Gabrielle, Australia - Jan 2016
Dear Shreyas family, it was our first trip to India for Gab (my friend) and I – lucky enough to have a trip together. We were so blessed to have 2 trips to Shreyas in our 3 week tour. After our 6 days initially – we had such a magical, restorative and spiritual, connective retreat; when we became sick up north during our travels, all we wanted to do was come back here. It is rare and special place – so authentic and spirited. I have worked and stayed in many retreats and spa around the world and Shreyas is my favourite of all. The staff are all incredible, intuitive and nurturing – the food exceptional, and the beautiful magical grounds so healing. I know I’ll be back – so it’s not good bye but see you soon.
Samita, Mumbai - Jan 2016
It was a great experience to come to Shreyas. The service, meditation, yoga were all excellent. Would love to come back for the experience.
Amanda, Australia - Jan 2016
Thank you for an amazing 4 days. The food was always fresh and delicious. Wonderful to have the company of other guests. The meditation and yoga was excellent – great for a beginner! As for the massages – no words to describe the exquisite experience. I will certainly return – hopefully for a longer next time.
Laura & Reine, Australia - Jan 2016
This is such a very special place! Shreyas surpassed our expectations! Mostly what impresses us was the tenderness and professionalism of the staff. They all work so well together and know the guest needs very well!!! The food was also a huge treat – everything was delicious, varied and of top quality. The yoga, breathing and meditation were very well done and enlightening! The spa was delicious! Thank you!
Vanessa, France - Jan 2016
Dear all, it was such a amazing experience! The mood is so special with a fantastic and unique service. In French, we can say – ‘du sur mesure’, because we are so well treated. I am looking forward to coming back soon. Thank you so much for everything. I will never forget this time. Warmest regards.
Thomas & Thierry, France - Jan 2016
Dear Shreyas team, our stay with you was absolutely fantastic, a unique experience well above our expectations!! Thanks to your constant attention and high professional skills, we went through a spiritual and physical journey towards peace and reconnection with ourselves. The estate is wonderful, a real heaven. The meal time is always a feast, both for the senses and thanks to the attention of the staff. Yoga classes are almost like private lessons and the dedication, expertise and kindness of the teachers is in itself a good reason to wake up at 6.20 every morning. We have never done that on holidays as a routine before. Well done Shreyas! Massages and treatment were another discovery and source of absolute well being. It will be difficult to g back to regular life and we will miss our retreat. Thank you so much and we look forward to our nest stay.
Grethe, Norway - Jan 2016
Dear Shreyas team, thank you for a wonderful, relaxing and peaceful week. I have really appreciated the ’big things’ like yoga, massages, meditation, and indeed the food. But the smaller details is what has really impressed me, the beautifully decorated tables at every meal, the outdoor dinners, the flower decorations everywhere – even in the bathroom, and the lanterns in the evening that makes the whole place magical. I feel I have been gently taken care of at all times in a very special atmosphere. I have also appreciated getting to know the other guests from around the world, all relaxing and enjoying life whilst staying here. So, again – thanks for all your hard work to make me feel at peace. Namaste.
Helen, USA - Jan 2016
Dear Shreyas, thank you so much for everything you do, on a daily basis, to make Shreyas such a lovely place. Everything here feels like it is in synchrony – from the beautifully kept grounds and garden, to the delectable organic food and drink, to the calming and yet energising massages, to the meditation and yoga practices – yet, all of these take, no doubt, a lot of effort to keep in such good form. Please know that your effort does not go unnoticed. I am so grateful for having been here with you and feel that I leave more at peace, more centered, more full of grace, than perhaps have ever been. Thank you for making that possible for me and all your guests. You are a positive force in the world. Blessings and love.
Max & Marie, France - Jan 2016
Dear Shreyas Team, I am not sure we can find the right words to thank you
– there is so much to thank you all for! - Everyone’s kindness and constant attention.
- The incredible benefits of the ayurvedic treatments, with wonderful therapists.
- The enlightenment of meditation sessions.
- The energy of the yoga classes, led by demanding
– but always smiling teachers.
- The insights from ayurvedic medicine, with a great, educative doctor.
- The taste of food, even the detox! etc., etc. We have spent a wonderful week, a truly transformative one.
We’ll try to prolong at home all the benefits and we’ll keep in our hearts all your teachings. Namaste.

The best compliment I pay Shreyas – we are already planning our next holiday back to Shreyas! Thank you, merci, namaste.

Dear Shreyas team, Shreyas is a lovely place, well maintained…. All of you made our retreat a memorable one. Thanks! We will come back again!
Brian, Kenya - Dec 2015
Dear Shreyas, 25 days already gone, I really enjoyed my stay here! I knew what I wanted to get out my retreat but got more. Lost 7 kilos (wow). I enjoyed the service that to me was the best service that I have received anywhere. The staff are selfless and very very welcoming. I am happy with the trip and I look forward to coming back in 2016 for just a few nights. Thank you guys and much love.
Shashi, India - Dec 2015
Dear Rucha, Ramakant, Ramegowda, Bala & Balaji, and all the other endearing staff; thank you for everything that you do the way you do. This place is very close to our hearts and realigns us to remember how things ought to be done. One of the best people and places I’ve visited. My daughter says she will always come back. Grateful and sincerely.
Papiya Sarkar, India - Dec 2015
Dear Shreyas team, thank you for making the stay soo comfortable. It was an amazing experience! Don’t change. 🙂
Linda & Neil Brownstein, USA - Dec 2015
Dear team Shreyas, we suppose that we keep returning says how much we love it here! How to count the ways? *Our beloved Ramakant greeting us with other warm staff members. *Our welcome visit with Balaji who made every effort to make our stay even exceed our expectations. *Incredible yoga adapted to our level of practice – love it! *Terrific Spa sessions for us as well as special therauptic treatments for Niel’s cola and cough. *Wonderful attention from Dr. Arun and Dr. Shahuja, Dr. Arun was particularly caring to be sure to get Neil well before leaving – loved it! *Rita’s instruction in pranayama was excellent, she is warmly dedicated to Shreyas. *Bala’s meditation is always centering and calming. *The dining staff and food are impeccable! From the beauty of the table settings to the careful service to the scrumptious cuisine; it is all perfect. Most of all, the entire team is so well trained and so dedicated to making each guest’s stay just what you come to achieve. For us Shreyas is our inner sanctuary…. Where we come to restore and re- charge to grow in new ways…. And to find a sense of balance. We re-enter our ‘normal’ life anew, until the next time. With our deep gratitude and affection.
Nishant & family, Australia - Dec 2015
Absolutely love our 1st/2nd stay. Always feel sad leaving this heaven. We came here exhausted, drained and badly needing a break. We are glad to have come here. The staff were very affectionate, caring and professional. We loved all the sessions. We thank everybody for making our stay memorable. The best compliment I pay Shreyas – we are already planning our next holiday back to Shreyas! Thank you, merci, namaste.
Rachel, London - Dec 2015
Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful experience for me. The whole environment here is so calming, I feel nurtured. I have loved the yoga (despite the early start),the wonderful vegan food, the massages, the dinner setting by the pool, the meditation, so much! I very much hope to be back for another dose of calm!
Rutu & Saagar, Dubai - Dec 2015
Dear Shreyas, thank you for the wonderful experience. We enjoyed every bit of it, didn’t realise where the 5 days went by. Especially appreciate the little things; shoes turned around, the dinner/lunch table arrangements. Thanks once again to all the staff, teachers and management.
Roza, London - Dec 2015
Shreyas is a truly magical place, the staff are all incredible and you are made to feel like royalty, no attention to detail was spared, and you were totally loved and cared for. Thank you so much to each and every one here. The only thing that spoilt the tranquillity was the construction noise, which on some days made it impossible to find a quiet corner just to sit and be. I will definitely return, but maybe once the building work had been completed. Namaste.
Pritty, London - Nov 2015
Another extremely beautiful stay at Shreyas for me! Staff, food, treatments are 6 star in my opinion. Special thank you to Dr. Shahuja for being so proactive, caring, attentive and loving towards me. My only request is that Shreyas does not change in any which way! Please…. I hope to be back soon. Thank you to every single person at Shreyas.
Hayley, Autsralia - Nov 2015
Thanks to the staff for having us two. Calm and relaxing, Great yoga!
Donna, Australia - Nov 2015
Would have been Utopia except for the noise created by construction. Thanks for having us!!!
Elizabeth, London - Nov 2015
Thank you for a wonderful stay. I love Shreyas! Thank you for all the yoga sessions and for teaching me so much. Amazing massages and such a kind and caring environment, thank you, thank you! Would love to stay longer but hope to be back!
Zheng (Hannah), USA - Nov 2015
The whole experience made me fall in love with India. I loved the yoga classes. Can’t wait to come back with my husband so that he can experience this magical place too.
Deena, India - Nov 2015
Thank you to all the staff for coordinating and making my stay very memorable. The ayurveda massage was the first time I experienced a synergised treatment. The ambience is amazing, had no idea this place is so close to Bangalore.
The food is awesome and lip smacking. Keep up the good work.
Annu & Kaushik , UK - Oct 2015
Kaushik and I can’t thank you all enough for the wonderful experience we have both had at Shreyas. Yoga has come into our lives a few years ago and whilst our classes in London are very good, the experience of the yogic teachings, both physically and spiritually has truly enhanced our understanding and appreciation of yoga. The staff at Shreyas are fantastic, so helpful, gracious and hospitable. The quality and range of food provided at our meals has been outstanding. The programme offered as part of the package is so well thought out and fulfilling. The site at Shreyas is beautiful, full of ambience and positive energy. Thank you once again for this most uplifting experience we’ve had at Shreyas.
Veronique, France - Oct 2015
Thank you for this fantastic experience. The more I stayed the more I appreciated and feel the full benefit of these early yoga session and full program - to push further knowledge and well being. I leave with this energy and perfect to follow this great discipline. All the team made this journey perfect!
Jessica, France - Oct 2015
Thank you for a wonderful discovery of yoga at Shreyas. As soon as you step into your cottage, you are in a different world. Staff has been welcoming and very attentive to our needs. Vegetarian diet was both terribly healthy and very good and giving us a wide overview of local delicacies. We are leaving with both body and mind rested and energised. Again, thank you to all for a warm welcome.
Sapna & Vinod, Dubai - Oct 2015
1) We were very impressed with Sheyas from the time Mr. Krishna came to pick us up. Service in the car was excellent. 2) We loved the traditional welcome with aarti and garlands. 3) We loved the variety, quality and service in the kitchen. 4) Co-ordination between all the staff is amazing. Shreyas has achieved six sigma which the airlines and medical facilities have failed to achieve. 5) Suggestion: If you could separate the dining area for those wearing the silence badge. 6) Most importantly, I loved Shreyas because it is the only unpretentious place I have come across. So, thank you for staying pure and natural.
Dianne, Australia - Oct 2015
Shreyas retreat transcended my expectations on most every level. Its simple elegance, the devoted staff who were discrete, attentive, obliging and gracious. I felt they all were driven by a genuine desire to please and satisfy my every request. Bala, Rita – I am grateful our worlds converged. Your wisdom, guidance and your generosity. For it all, I thank you both deeply. My vehicle has taken a turn for the best. Doctor, you are amazing, thank you for remembering all my requests and your care. Rucha, for the gorgeous shopping. Mani & Venkatesh our cute chefs in the wonderful cooking class. I wish I could take you home. Thank you to the wonderful attentive wait staff, for the outstanding food and presentation. I leave the gates of Shreyas knowing I am better prepared to experience my world differently and for that I am grateful. Thank you Shreyas.
Jodie, Australia - Oct 2015
The stay at Shreyas has been incredible . . . . such a stunning surround and ambience and peacefulness . . . . the attention to detail and hospitality has been impeccable I will take this lightness and peace with me. To the staff – each and every one of you, ‘may the sparkle in me also be with you’. Namaste!
Mollie, USA - Oct 2015
This was my first visit to Shreyas and in fact my first retreat. It was an incredible experience and my only regret is that it didn’t last more nights. I will definitely be back for further physical and spiritual exploration.

Gaynor, UK - Oct 2015
Martin has been telling me about the wonderful Shreyas for the last 8 years, and at last we have made it together – to celebrate his 60th brithday. It has been completely fabulous – cannot fault anything – the staff made such a fantastic effort to make Martin’s birthday so special. All I can say is thank you and see you again soon . . . .
Daniel, UK - Oct 2015
My second visit, the last was 8 years ago and have wanted to come back ever since. For one reason or another it hasn’t happened until now. Those amazing memories have turned out not to have become more rosy with time, it really is true. This peace is amazing, exceptional and wonderful. Everybody is so helpful and pleasant. I will not wait another 8 years!
Preeti & Sqn. Ldr. S.V. Kumar, India - Oct 2015
On my daughter’s insistence we came here. In fact she brought us here and we have additional pleasure to be here. The verdant greenery, tall trees and sylvan ambience, lovely, absorbing and unwinding feeling is to be shared many fold. In fact like to visit this place many more times.
Vivek & Priyal, India - Oct 2015
We wanted a day break from our busy life in Bengaluru. Shreyas was an awesome discovery. We fell in love with the place, staff and garden cottage the very instant we walked in. We appreciate small things such as keeping our slippers in the right direction. Overall, had a great stay and would like to come back again.
Shaz, London - Oct 2015

Specially the staff of Shreyas is so attentive, loving and caring, making it an unforgettable stay. Hope to visit again. Thank you for every moment you make us enjoy the stay.
ManonKanaroglu, London & Greece - Oct 2015
Shreyas has been, 5 years ago, the beginning of a new life, I’ll keep coming back to enjoy the positiveness, the energy, the well being, the warmth, the elegance, the comfort and the privacy . . . . I love PRAGNYA (my space!). But above all, the teaching of yoga with wonderful and calm teachers, understanding and re-comforting – the attention given to the meals, the table set up, the cooking and the service is a delight. The family atmosphere, the attention – everyone from the management to the night guard, is aware and know our needs before even formulating them. Thank you to all, don’t ever change . . . . with all my love.
Santosh, India - Oct 2015
How t express? It’s unimaginable experience. Shreyas team is so hospitable; it feels like home away from home. Right from your entry into Shreyas campus, you experience the special attention here. It’s full of positive energy. I would like to thank Giriji, Rita, Bala, Rucha, Shahuja, Arun, Nidhe, Balaji and all the Shreyas team. Thanks all.
Anne, Australia - Sept 2015
Thank you to everyone at Shreyas for making me feel very welcome and cherished. Loved everything. I will be back.
Greg, UK - Sept 2015
Dear Shreyas staff and management, what a fantastic 6 nights. Everything was so well arranged, non intrusive and of very high standard. Yoga, massage, food, attention to detail and staff warmth – amazing! Will be back soon with my wife. Best wishes and thank you all.
Kesav, Malaysia - Sept 2015
Dear Shreyas, it was my 1st trip on a yoga experience. Thanks to my daughter, Charu, who indirectly forced me to attend this retreat. What a wonderful experience I had and am taking back to Malaysia all the wonderful memoirs and people of Shreyas. The staff were all like a small joint family – always smiling and ready to help you in one way or the other. I am going back home full of positive energy and will return back soon again to re-charge again. Kudos to all my yogi teachers who were just awesome. With warm regards.
Alice & Ruth, Paraguay & England - Sept 2015
To the Shreyas team, you have made us feel special, safe and cared. The food was amazing, the yoga challenged us and the treatments relaxed us. The company at meals was great, we will be back.
Prerna, India - Sept 2015
To the team Shreyas: Peaceful! Blissful! Wonderful! Soulful! One of the best experiences of life by far. Especially the staff here is unbelievably wonderful. Small gestures like turning the slippers in the right direction whenever we stepped in, has touched my heart deeply. Knowledgeable yoga instructors have given us a new direction to discover. The way the table is laid for every meal will make you feel no less than a KING/QUEEN. Wonderfully planned menus and an amicable doctor always there to help you make you feel so special suddenly!! It might sound funny but as I leave Shreyas, I feel like a daughter stepping out of father’s house into a new world. I better stop now. Me and my family truly loved this place. Thank you all, we are definitely coming back.
Gauri, India - Sept 2015
To the staff and team of Shreyas, thank you thank you thank you for such a blissful 6 days. It was truly amazing and I want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart. Everyone here is so attentive and thoughtful, taking care of every small need that arises. The yoga and meditation was lovely and a very grounding experience. The day very well planned and the food absolutely delicious. The dinner was so beautifully crafted and the outdoor candle settings made it so much more peaceful. Thank you once again. Look forward to coming here soon.

Matt Larson & Sierra Larson, USA & Ireland - Sept 2015
The hospitality we experienced here at Shreyas is unparalleled. The best setting possible for the most enlightening meditation, yoga, massage and culinary experiences of our lives…. our parents wanted us to travel to India together for an experience we’ll never forget. Thanks to Shreyas - we found it. Thank you, Namaste.
Lu Parker, USA - August 2015
Namaste! Everything about my experience at Shreyas has been magical! From the moment I arrived, I knew I picked the right place for my first visit to India. Each person who works at the property has a light that shines – from yoga sessions – to the incredible food – to meditation – even the cows know how to make you feel at home. No detail was missed. I consider you guys friends forever. Thank you for sharing your spirit – see you again. Namaste.

Amazing place – perfect end to a wonderful trip to India. Top-notch staff and lovely amenities. Thank you to everyone for making the past 3 days so enjoyable.
Moty Naschon, UK - August 2015
I guess that the fact that I am here for the fifth time in the past five years says it all. The place, the ambience, the food, the treatments, the yoga, the meditation are all of the highest level but what makes this place magical are the people that run and manage this place. Thank you team Shreyas for making my time here truly inspirational. See you soon.
Ria & Sabrina Sakhrani, Indu Gobind, India - August 2015
It was what we were looking for. A getaway from the city and it exceeded our expectations. It was lovely to have the 3 - bedroom cottage – thank you! The staff was so alert and the attention to detail was phenomenal. Definitely don’t feel ready to leave this beautiful and tastefully done place! Thank you for your gracious hospitality.
Niculin, Switzerland, - August 2015
Thank you very much indeed for the nice week shared together. Was here for the 3rd time. I enjoyed everything a lot, feel like I am part of your family. The yoga (lots of private) sessions were really great, thanks to all the 3 teachers for correcting me as often as I needed. I did postures that I never thought were possible to do with my body. Massages were really nice and will help me to work again a lot with computers, very nice eye treatments. And the food that I will regret and miss when I get back home. Nice practice of meditation in so nice a place. Thank you once more and see you soon. Bye.. bye, Namaste.
Terri, Australia - August 2015
Thank you everyone at Shreyas for making my time here so special. My silent retreat has been a journey I will never forget. You are kind and generous people and I appreciate everything you have done for me over the past 7 nights. Until next time, best wishes.

Claire, UK - June 2015
This place feels like heaven on earth. The surroundings, the sounds of the forest, the wonderful food, yoga and meditation. All of this is made possible by your wonderful employees – look after them as they make your guests feel treasured. It’s an excellent concept.
Nathalie, Paris - June 2015
Here is the end of the stay. Wonderful detox experience, amazing ayurvedic treatments. I lost weight and my skin is soft now. Place of peace, joy and wellbeing. I will recommend to everyone. No television, nature and dinner with other guests as a family. Thanks for all the work of each Indian person, gardening, laundry . . . . each of them, they do a wonderful job at taking care of each guest. All the best, I am coming soon.
Ananthakrishnan, India - June 2015
Both self and my wife had a wonderful stay here. The hospitality extended is far beyond expectations and all the service staffs from all sections extended full support to feel yourself comfortable and made us at home. Special words for your teachers of yoga, the ayurveda spa and the wonderful illustrations provided to us by Mr. Balasundar, for sound meditation and yoganidra. Our special thanks to all service staff and the supporting staff. Thanks and looking forward to come here in future. NB: Food served is excellent and of good quality and suits to every one’s requirement. Very sincere staff. A.Ananthakrishnan & Vijayalakshmi Krishnan, Bengaluru.
Ebru, Canada - June 2015
Thank you very much for this wonderful stay. I came here ready for a break, I needed to get calm and one with nature again and this environment has provided me the best to get to myself again. Most of all, thank you for the wonderful staff! Beyond words, so nice! Also, for my yoga practice, I will definitely keep my practice and incorporate wha I have been taught here. Thank you!
Mary, USA - June 2015
This stay far exceeded my expectations! I am just starting my yoga journey and this was the perfect environment to learn and grow. I am excited to take my new knowledge and to continue to build upon it and work towards balancing my life. Much love.
Suzanne, USA - June 2015
One of the best experiences of my life. I am coming away with so much more than I ever expected. I have learned so much about yoga and myself. The staff is over the top amazing, everyone! The yoga and meditation classes centered mind, body, spirit! All the spa treatments were caring and relaxing. The food was incredible – we looked forward to every meal. Thank you for everything, I am ever so grateful! Namaste, love.
Eana, UK - June 2015
This was exactly what I was looking for, thank you!
Sunitha and kondur, India - May 2015
Thank you for an amazingly lovely relaxed experience. I was here just for a day and want to come back very soon for an extended visit with a group of friends. Every moment from arrival, the talk with doctors, the yoga sessions and meditation, the dining experiences have been warm and friendly and more so very genuine. The food has been simple and delicious and would just recommend adding an evening snack for those who come here just to relax. Very, very impressed with the service and facility. Going to recommend to all the Bangalore friends to come and getaway to this oasis, so close to the city. Thank you.
Gowri, Venkatesh and Vaishnavi, India - May 2015
Thank you for a great ambience and your attention to detail is highly praiseworthy. Bringing people to the spirituality plane is very difficult and you have achieved that with such finesse. Names of cottages, slokas, books prepare guests for a relaxed overview of Indian spiritual experience. Hope you excel further in your efforts.
Somindra, Preeti & Little Satwik, India - May 2015
First of all, I would rate Shreyas as the paradise closest to Bangalore one can come over to. Amazing place, superb ambience, flawless service and most importantly attention to detail – examples – your slippers are reversed when you enter and leave a room, odomos cream, ear plugs and the list goes on…. Home theatre is another USP which I have not come across – same with cookery classes…. Pity that me and my wife couldn’t enjoy the spiritual part of this retreat – yoga et al as we had to manage our 2 year old son’s antics! Looking forward to come again and recommend all those who are looking for a quiet weekend!
Ayesha, Canada - May 2015
Thank you to everyone at Shreyas for a wonderful stay. Care was very attentive and I feel in just a short time the improvement in my yoga. Thank you! .
Marnie, Australia - May 2015
Everything from the yoga to the food to the attentive service was beyond any expectations I had. I feel rejuvenated in mind, body and soul. Thank you for allowing me to improve my yoga and connect with myself in a way that my busy life style at home doesn’t always allow. I am already planning my return trip here (and plan to bring along family and friends). Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Manjit, Jagtap Singh Bassi, Canada - May 2015
Thank you to everyone at Shreyas for an incredible stay. Your entire team’s attention to detail and personal care of each person is exceptional! I feel incredibly at peace even with this short stay, my mind, body and spirit is rejuvenated. Thank you for the peaceful rooms, the creative and nourishing food, the beautiful table settings and the well-kept gardens. Thank you to Bala for raising questions; Ramakant and Mani for the care in teaching yoga, and for Shobha’s magical hands!! I am imagining and planning another visit!! Thank you!! Love and peace.
Stephanie, USA - May 2015
Thank you to the generous and wonderful staff and management of Shreyas. I arrived spent and feeling unhealthy and I depart feeling satisfied in mind, body and soul…. my journey just begins…. Thank you for the start.
Lina, Canada - May 2015
Dear all at Shreyas, thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart, for such a fantastic and brilliant stay here at your amazing property. Every minute was perfect; your attention to every little detail to make sure that my stay exceeded expectations was appreciated. All the staff were so kind and so helpful. The yoga classes were such a treat. I learned so much from Ramakant, Manikant & Rita and I will take their instructions with me when I leave. The kitchen staff were always so sweet. The food was always perfect – even on my detox days!!! I met so many new friends and I am grateful for such a wonderful experience here. I hope to be able to come back for a longer stay. Lots of love and hugs to all of you! You have made my stay so memorable. From farming, to visiting the children, to trekking with Giri and Anudas, to cooking with the amazing chef Rame – thank you, thank you, thank you! Love….
Thushani (Age 10) - Mauritius/South Africa - April 2015
This has been one of the best hotels I have been to! I felt so relaxed. The food was delicious!!!
Sugania Moodley Mauritius/South Africa - April 2015
This has truly been such an invigorating experience. I arrived with great expectations and these were more than fulfilled. I have never experienced such warmth and love from the entire STAFF. You all are simply incredible. It is heart- warming to know that such love and hospitality still exists in our lousy world. This was a bonding retreat, a special time for my gorgeous daughter, Thushani and I. Thank you for giving us such cherished memories. I am looking forward to returning with my entire family.
Malani Padayacha, Samon, South Africa - April 2015
It feels as though we have stumbled upon ‘’heaven on earth’’. The whole experience from the start to finish was incredible. A very relaxing way to end a trip to India. This ‘’mother/daughter’’ trip will be treasured forever. Our very 1st experience of yoga, meditation and pranayama has given us the basics on which to build on. Hoping to come back in the future. A big ‘’THANK YOU’’ to all the staff at Shreyas for making this so special.
Yaerika Samon (13 years), South Africa\ - April 2015

Rene & Leonie, Switzerland - April 2015
We say thank you for the warm welcome; for the various, creative and tasty food; for your friendly, warm and open hearted smiles; for your attention: all the warm lights, always turning our shoes, an umbrella just at the right times; a glass of water, a freshening towel, mosquito protection everywhere; for your well organised team – they helped us to relax our brains; for your patience during yoga/meditation sessions; for your wise words and thoughts which you shared with us; for the curious monkeys and quacking frogs; for your talented hands during massages; for the lovely decoration of tables and flowers everywhere; for the best lemon cheese cake we ever had:)) We are deeply impressed and grateful to know such a place like Shreyas. Special thanks to the kitchen team. We enjoyed the food a lot . . . . Special thanks to every one of you – stay the way you are!!! Taking this experience back to Switzerland . . . .
Alessandra, Pavolini - April 2015
This is a secret jewel paradise you have developed. Very rare to create these days and I hope you’ll preserve it as it is. I will bring it with me in my travels as the one only place where the birds, the smells, the colour, the light and the water bring peace. Thanks.
Javid, Dubai - April 2015
Thanks to everyone for making my stay very memorable. The last 3 days has been one of the most peaceful days of my life. Since I am pressed for time, I had to leave in 3 days. Can’t wait to come back and this time stay for a longer duration.
Karen and Lynn, Australia - April 2015
Nurturing . . . . nourishing . . . . Namaste . . . . Our challenge is now to replicate this wonderful experience back home. All staff are so kind, so friendly and make you feel so welcome. The food, service, treatments, yoga, meditation and doctor services are truly wonderful memories and continually value the friendships we have made. Thank you Shreyas.
Holly, UK - April 2015
It is the people that make Shreyas so special – I will miss the Doctor appearing out of thin air to ask about my treatments, the long, philosophical conversations about spirituality with Bala (and a few tears!) and the laughter and smile of Ramakant. The other guests I spent the week with provided wonderful and hilarious company and I left with new friends. An emotional, interactive and mind – opening experience I won’t forget. I hope, when I return, I will have found my Inner Truth, Breath, Posture, Energy and /love.
Mischa, UK - April 2015
Thanks to all at Shreyas for making this a wonderful stay. I feel extremely healthy and my yoga has improved (I think!) a huge amount in a short space of time!
Subir & Christine, UK - April 2015
Christine and I enjoyed our stay at Shreyas. The staff, environment and facilities are in complete harmony. I would have no hesitation in recommending Shreyas to my friends, family and colleagues. Thank you for a wonderful time.
Dr. Sema Sagier, Argentina - April 2015
Dear Shreyas team, thank you for having us once again. As usual, our stay was wonderful. We see this as our ‘home away from home’. With love.
Puja, Singapore - April 2015
I can always safely say, this is my second home of 10 years! I love Shreyas so much. It really is my slice of heaven, and will always be. Everything (staff and food, ambience, quality, details, massages and hospitality) is BEYOND expectations, as usual. I always leave with a hole in my heart! Will see you all next year . . . Love
Ryan, UK - April 2015
Another beautiful week at Shreyas. What stands out for me this time is how caring, kind hearted, patient and hard working the staff are here. It is such a pleasure staying here. All the love.
Marga, UK - April 2015
I have stayed in a lot of places but none of them can beat Shreyas. The staff is exceptional, there is so much eye for detail and the food is delicious. This week has been a true journey of self-discovery for me. It was a great experience. Thank you.
Uma, India - April 2015
It was truly a journey of self-discovery. It was a discovery of one’s mind, soul and of course yoga. It was my first experience of yoga and I felt, Shreyas is a great place to start this. Yoga and meditation taught me discipline which I intend to carry with me forever. Thanks Shreyas . . . . for the awakening of my mind and soul and for sowing the seeds of self-discovery journey . . . .
Tamara, Paris - April 2015
I arrived with high expectations, all of which were exceeded. I am feeling grateful for the journey that brought me here and for the journey to continue deeper into the Astanga practice. Special thanks to Ramakant and Mani – you guys showed me, I am able to go further than I ever knew. You’ve started something great, wait until I come back next year! Also to Rucha, Bala, Dr. Arun and Dr. Shahuja (I hope, I got that right) – I have learned a lot, treasures that I bring home with me. With great love and respect.
Manuela, India - April 2015
Vintage Shreyas at its best! Service, impeccable; staff, very attentive as always.
Samantha, UK - April 2015
Shreyas is that rare combination of precision and attention to detail at every level, combined with a truly nurturing and life reinforcing energy. It is a wonderful place with wonderful people. If I could bottle what you have created here and spread it around – the world would be a better place. Thank you to all, for all.
Neil, UK - April 2015
Thank you for everything. I can’t believe how much I feel I have gained in my week at Shreyas: from improving my yoga positions to enhancing my meditation practice to just learning ways to deal with the stresses of everyday life. I am taking a lot from here that will help me live a better life overall. I also want to thank the chefs and their teams for all of the wonderful meals and cooking lessons. Food is an important part (and special) and all of it was spectacular and healthy! AND thank you for the special dinner on my last night with all my favourites, I loved and appreciated it. Can’t wait to be back.
Fiona, Scotland - April 2015
I came to Shreyas to mark stopping a stressful job, to lose weight, start to get fit and take up yoga again after 20 years. I leave here so much lighter, in both body and mind! I would only echo the previous entries which describe, much more elegantly than I could the kindness, thoughtfulness and support given by all members of staff. I am glad I have very much the privilege of staying here and hope very much to come back. Thank you for everything!
Lucy, UK - April 2015
Thank you so much for an amazing week. Each time I come, I gain new memories of the wonderful people including all staff members and gain memories of all the fabulous lessons, food and much more. Thank you again for everything.

Barbara, UK - March 2015
What can I say? Yet another wonderful stay at this stunningly calm, serene and beautiful place. Each and every one of you have looked after me so perfectly – so, firstly I must thank all of you and I do this from the bottom of my heart. As a returning guest, you have every wish and hope to experience all the previous magic of the previous visit, but this is interlinked with a little fear that your memory has played some tricks and it will not live up to all the hopes! The reality is that Shreyas is exactly the same as ever – as peaceful, soothing and enriching as ever. Absolutely everything is truly wonderful. My thanks to you all.
Tonia & Stephan, Switzerland - March 2015

I don’t have the words to describe the feeling of peace, calm and soothing energy I felt here; far from the maddening world.:)) This place is a true gem and even though my time here was short, I am taking a lot from the people that dedicatedly work here, the architecture, the trees, the vegetable garden, the food. This place is spiritual and I am sure no one is left untouched. Inshallah! I shall come back again. Thank you all for creating this paradise.
Stella, Canada - March 2015

Shraddha, USA - Feb 2015
Thank you Shreyas for providing a retreat where we can get back in touch with the way we should be living our lives. These 5 days reminded me that I have to take time to care for my mind, body and soul and in doing so, I can be at more peace. Everything from the yoga to the healthy eating and being surrounded by nature – I hope to take it back with me in my heart and live it every day! Thank you! See you soon!

Dear Shreyas, thank you so much for the warm hospitality. It has been an amazing 5 days of Zen. I have learnt and experienced so much in such a short period of time, and it’s been a great start to 2015. The staff, I am so pleased of the genuininity, passion and grace they provide to all guest. I was so impressed when one afternoon I was at the little hut in the organic garden, and a nice gentleman came to deliver a water bottle. Everything is so well thought out – keep up the great job, I will surely include a review in my blog, will recommend, and be back next year. Lots of love.

John & Kim, England - Feb 2015
We came not knowing what to expect. A beautiful place with wonderful staff, where nothing is too much trouble. It became an experience we will never forget, especially the pooja! The patience of the yoga teachers was beyond belief as it is very early in our yoga journey. Thank you to the doctors for their guidance and direction, we felt very valued by your staff and every one at Shreyas.
Mireille, France - Feb 2015
There will definitely be a ‘before Shreyas’ and ‘after Shreyas’ in my life. Came here at a very troubled time and the experience has been so much more than I expected. Having never really done yoga before, I found the teachers really exceptional in understanding my needs and helping me improve a bit more every day. Similarly, I discovered meditation and pranayama, and the sessions with Bala will stay with me for a long time. I go back home, stronger and more at peace with myself than ever. Thank you, ALL the staff are wonderful, this is a very special place.
Mehreen, Pakistan - Feb 2015
I had a great time here. The staff was very helpful. I wasn’t expecting it to be that great. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience of doing yoga and getting massages. Hope to come back soon.
Carla, USA - Feb 2015
The most amazing vacation of my life. Everything I hoped for and more. Food was absolutely outstanding at every meal! Nice variety of foods served. Cooking classes were absolutely worth taking. Yoga was fantastic! Instructors really know their skills and teach well. They peck up quickly on your ability and can challenge you. I learned so much, improved and feel I really can take what I learned home for my practice. Meditation and pranayama very very good. Had never done pranayama before and found it to be an excellent way to enhance and further my meditation experience. Spa was beyond words!! I was so pleased, so impressed and so grateful to ALL the staff. Everyone’s care and concern made this trip the amazing journey it was. Having some special circumstances, I was nervous about my visit. There was no need to be. Everyone went out of their way to make sure I could navigate the grounds and that I had absolutely everything I needed at all times. I am truly grateful beyond words. Thank you. P.S.: Added bonus: I had so much fun meeting other guests; we really enjoyed good conversations together.
Janessa and Anjali - Melbourne & London - Feb - 2015
Thank you Shreyas for providing a wonderful base from which to continue our spiritual growth. The tranquil environment and surroundings have added to our experience of yoga and meditation. Staff have always been and often go out of their way to provide us with extra comfort i.e., different fruits to try or preferences with cuisine. The teachers at Shreyas have been wonderful. Our experiences with Bala, Ramakant and Mani deserve mention. They have been amazing with pushing us physically and mentally beyond what we thought we were capable of, in a short amount of time. Thank you again for this truly unique experience.
Andrew & Judith, UK Feb - 2015
A few months before arriving, my wife asked if I would be interested in a holiday to a yoga retreat in India. I am a 62 year old man who eats meat, drinks wine and has done very little exercise in the last 20 or more years so to say the least, I was a little apprehensive. I have to say I would now recommend anyone to have a break, in more ways than one, at Shreyas. Without exception, everything has been excellent: the food, the staff, the place/setting, the yoga classes, meditation etc., and I feel fitter than I have done in decades as does my wife. Thank you to all at Shreyas, you are all brilliant and an example to anyone.
Edwards, USA - Feb 2015
My stay was very relaxing. The yoga and instructors were really great. Everything felt personalised. The staff at Shreyas made me feel safe and comfortable. Always smiling and eager to help. The aura of the place is really special – everything is wonderful.
Christine, Switzerland & Singapore - Feb 2015
We had a most relaxing and enjoyable time at Shreyas. The food was excellent and we were both surprised about the great variety being it all vegetarian. The yoga sessions were very professionally conducted and we are proud to say that we didn’t miss a single one during our 10 days! Ayurveda was a novelty and we were taken away by the different sensations. All in all our expectations were exceeded and we are more than happy to recommend ‘Shreyas’ and look forward to be back. Good luck and the all the very best. PS: A huge compliment to all the staff, they are exceptional.
Mynko Bartell, USA - Jan 2015
Thank you for a wonderful trip! The food was fantastic, the staff were friendly and available and the surroundings were peaceful and beautiful! Namaste.
Dhanwanti - Thailand : Jan 2015
Food was nice and meditation was nice. Everything was nice, I will be back soon.
Laura - USA : Jan 2015
Shreyas is everything I could have hoped for and more. I came here to begin yoga practice for my body and meditation for my soul. It turns out that both are wonderful for your body and soul. The private yoga sessions have given me confidence that I can continue my practice when I return home. The meditation and pranayama sessions were wonderful. The only negative I have to say is that I don’t ever want to leave. Thank you everyone at Shreyas for your care and hospitality.
Catherine - Jan 2015
I can’t wait to be back. Thank you for the truly special and surprising place. It’s the caring and attentive staff that are making Shreyas what it is. Merci! Merci!

Sugandha - India - Dec 2014
Shreyas is a very tranquil and calm retreat. I feel rejuvenated after my stay. Initially not knowing what to expect – Arun scheduled my activities which were well planned. Having tried yoga for the first time – Ramakant, Rita and Bala are excellent teachers; I will try it out once I go back. Housekeeping staff is very attentive with eye to details. Food was fantastic stay and I would definitely want to come back to stay the next time. Regards.
Aparajita, Seema, Isabelle - India: Dec 2014
Shreyas is place we come to for peace, tranquility rest and rejuvenation. As always, it has given us all of those things this time. It is a safe place for our daughter to run around. The yoga is terrific, the food amazing and overall, an incredible experience…. The staff and service here is superlative and for the 10 years we have been coming here, the quality has only improved. The rooms are tranquil and the housekeeping is meticulous. We are always grateful for our time at Shreyas, where we have always grown as individuals and as family. Thank you.
Pall - Iceland : Dec 2014
Dear Shreyas, after mere two days here, I feel rejuvenated and serene. Everything has been perfect. The service here is absolutely impeccable and the yoga/meditation instructions have been very helpful indeed. As a beginner to both yoga and meditation, I have now acquired a taste for it and hope to learn more. My stay here has been too short and I am determined to come again. The ambience and the spirit around here are just wonderful. Everything, both staff and surroundings, seems to emanate calm and kindness that is contagious. I leave Shreyas with joy in my heart. I look forward to returning and enjoy a longer stay.
Marie - France : Dec 2014
Dear all, why is it that I am not bored of Shreyas? Easy: after eight years of coming here regularly, nothing has changed. The staff is always perfect; the food excellent, the classes amazing and the place is a realm of calmness and kindness all over. I feel that I shall be back soon……. Again! Thanks to all of you.
Priya & Amith - India : Dec 2014
Lovelies at Shreyas, it was an amazing two night stay here away from the maddening lifestyle we have. The yoga instructors were so knowledgeable/approachable. We benefitted a lot from the trip. We will definitely take back the learning’s from here and hoping to come back here, soon! Thanks a ton.

Marlene & Sylvie - France - Dec 2014
We had a wonderful experience here at Shreyas. Absolutely everything was made to make us spend a perfect stay. I arrived here after a very stressful time, and will come out deeply relaxed. A special mention for the food – both Indian and Western – absolutely amazing. Thanks so much for having taken into account my food allergy and for preparing me separate dishes every time I needed, that was really appreciated! The yoga classes were all amazing; it was really nice to have all those classes with different instructors, all with their own personality and way of teaching. A special thanks to Rita with whom we had the private lessons, and who was a wonderful instructor. I will definitely come back; after all it’s less than an hour from home! Thank you so much for everything to every single member of the staff, I am very glad to have discovered this place!
Jennifer - Dec 2014
Dear Shreyas, I came exhausted, stressed and not even thinking about what to expect at Shreyas. The treatments, yoga and meditations melted the entire work world and daily stresses away. This was a complete, holistic and spiritual experience on deep and many levels. With gratitude.
Diane + 8 Members - USA - Dec 2014
Our group of 9 from LA all enjoyed the resort and had an unforgettable experience! We feel relaxed, refreshed and ready to go back to our western lives with new purpose and poise! The spa treatments were unique and indulgent. The yoga practice was welcoming and instructive practice for all of us, each at a different level, and inspiring to continue. We loved our breathing instruction from Bala . . . he helped us see and feel the world around us differently. You spoiled us with food and fantastic service and we hope to visit again – especially for the delicious food – yum! Have a healthy, peaceful New Year and we hope to see you again.

Alanna - USA: Dec - 2014
An absolutely mind-blowing experience. I have never felt calmer within myself and in relationship to my surroundings – I cannot emphasize my gratitude to Shreyas and the staff for helping me on my journey of self discovering. I was only here for two days and I wish it could be longer! I hope I will to be able to return and enjoy this experience. Everything was impeccable – staff, food, yoga, ambience – thank you!
Malti & Tulsi - New Zealand : Dec 2014
This was our first visit to Shreyas, and we are sad, it only lasted a week! The ambience was spectacular and beautiful and we have felt more relaxed and happy than we have in our lives, in the dark, cold and gloomy New Zealand. My mother and I are so glad to have found. Shreyas as it has opened so many doors on our yoga journey. We really think we have now fully become ‘Yoginis” because of this new ‘belief’, we do hope that this will not be our last visit to Shreyas and they may see much more of us in the future, especially to eat, more like the divine, amazing food! Thank you for your hospitality! Namaste.
Natalie, Stella - Canada : Dec 2014
Natalie, Stella and I came to Shreyas with no expectations. We were excited to come to India but beyond that were unprepared for how amazing this place is. The subtle beauty, the attentive staff, the wonderful and relaxing treatments, and yoga have all given us so much joy these last few days. We won’t forget our short (too short) time here and hope we are able to come back to visit someday soon. Thank you for the delicious food and keeping our bodies feeling good and healthy! With love and thanks.
Camille - France : Dec 2014
I will never forget my stay at Shreyas. It has become like a second home. When I first arrived, everything I felt mentally
and physically was dark and painful. What I feel now is like having been pulled up. Shreyas is a very special place: all the
staff practice yoga every day, creating a profound and joyful unity. The smiles I saw on the faces, the kindness I was
given, I won’t forget how precious it is. The property is unique, the garden, the birds singing, the quality of food, home
grown vegetables prepared with care . . . all this was for me part of a beautiful experience. But what I value the most
are the people I had the privilege to meet and whom I want to thank for sharing their knowledge with me. From day
one, a year ago, when I found out that I was sick, till the end of my treatment, a long and painful one, I relied on
different things, friends, family, doctors and myself. I first came here exhausted with an unresponsive body. I had no
idea about breathing, about meditation, I knew a bit about yoga. Through the process of my education at Shreyas, I
know something was given to me, something that cannot be bought, something that I will take back home. Something
that all of you create with your kindness and good care, sincerity and that got me back on my feet.
Kelvin - Canada : Dec - 2014
Dear staff & friends at Shreyas, this is clearly an oasis of peace, love and spiritual awakening. Thank you so much for the hospitality and gracious service. I have never felt so relieved for so long, despite my very short stay here. All the best, Namaste!
Cassandra, Canada - Nov 2014
Though I was only able to stay for one night - Shreyas has helped me relax, enjoy and be in the moment. Thank you to the staff that instantly makes you feel at home. The food – the food is unbelievable – the gorgeous mixture of spice that brings out the flavors is remarkable. Last but not the least – the yoga instruction is simply fantastic – gentle, challenging and strengthening all at the same time. Thank you.
Marianne & Lars, Denmark - Nov 2014
We would like to thank all the Shreyas staff and management for a super treatment during our two weeks stay. We enjoyed all the yoga, each of the instructors and their own style which was very inspiring. The massage was wonderful, thank you. The dinner, lunch, breakfast and service was well worth travelling for and lived up to the ‘Relais & Chateux’ expectation. We have a wonderful ‘feel good’ on body and soul and it boils down to thank you very much, we will be back. See you, Namaste.
Neil & Joe, HongKong - Nov 2014

Pritty, UK - Nov 2014
Dear all at Shreyas, thank you all so so much a truly beautiful experience at your retreat – it was so beyond my expectations. The resort and its simplicity & serenity make it a soothing environment however, what makes this resort so unique is its staff, each and every one of them. Wherever you go, you are greeted with a smile and Namaste. All the running around the staff do in the background to please you is amazing. There is so much attention to detail – the way staff places your sandals the right way around, the way flowers are presented in your room etc. The service you receive is so personalized. I would like to especially thank and appreciate Shobha - for her ‘magical massages; The chefs and waiters – for serving me the most delicious food; Dr.Arun – for taking care of my every needs, Rita – for the care & concern she showed & her 1 – 2 – 1 yoga session; Bala – for his support & comfort provided; Rucha – thank you for our very long chat! The security guards & Vishal for their wonderful smiles; Rame – nothing was ever too much trouble; Balaji – thank you for the care & understanding you have shown me & for arranging my orphanage visits.

Namaste.
Hybeen, India - Nov 2014
The Shreyas experience is out of the world. The environment and the ambience is soo . . . . peaceful. All the staff services are excellent. I am sure in three days time I could experience a wonderful and memorable stay at Shreyas. I am sure to come back for a longer stay and experience. Thank you soooo . . . . much Shreyas team for everything.
Amanda, UK - Nov 2014
A truly magical extended stay. My family left last week and I was blessed to stay for an extra 5 days. I am so pleased that I did, peaceful and beautiful. Yoga is excellent, spa and services are fabulous. Thank you Shreyas, I will return for sure.
Fiona, USA - Nov 2014
I have really enjoyed my 3 day stay at Shreyas and wish I could stay longer. I hope I can back again one day. I would like to thank all the staff for their hard work and felt very well looked after and cared for. The room was kept spotlessly clean with beautiful flowers every day. The food was wonderful, very tasty and varied. All the yoga teachers were wonderful, patient and caring. I especially enjoyed my last private session with Rita. I also had several spa treatments – all very good. Thank you to everyone at Shreyas for this fantastic experience. Namaste.
Moty, UK - Nov 2014
The Shreyas experience is magical. The place, people and kindness of all the staff is beyond expectation. The spiritual guidance, treatments, meals and yoga classes are of the highest level. It felt like ‘coming back home’. I have been here three times in the last four years and will definitely be back. Thank you all!!! Namaste.
Amanda, England - Nov 2014
This is my second stay at Shreyas. This time, I brought my husband, son and daughter with me (ages 19 & 11 years). What a wonderful experience again. The environment is so conducive to togetherness, love and healing – it is really a very special place here – one always to be remembered. Thank you all at Shreyas. The place of oneness. Amanda Chester
Sebastian & Phillips, England - Nov 2014

Julie, UK - Oct 2014
Dear Team Shreyas, Never before have I encountered such a joined up approach to ‘welcome’ – to have been ‘touched’ by so many different facets of your ‘retreat’! The staffs that collectively make it all ‘work’ – the food that makes us all look forward to the next meal (despite being a committed carnivore). The accommodation that ‘lured’ us back after yoga, meditation to sleep like a baby even after the first night when all I had done was travel here. I truly applaud the way each of the staff is integrated into life here. The orphanage children performing their dances on Diwali with such smiles of pride and delight is testimony to the work which is done here. I am in Bangalore until end march and do hope to come again and will ensure all my friends especially back in the UK know about the ‘rejuvenating’ Shreyas retreat. Thank you so much.
Vina, UK - Oct 2014
Dear friends at Shreyas, thank you for my wonderful experience at Shreyas. I loved every minute of it and feel inspired to take forth the principles of good eating and yoga and meditation to give me the inner peace and balance I seek. I cannot compliment the staff enough – you were all fantastic, thank you. I look forward to coming back . . . . until then. Thank you for my wonderful time. With love and light.
Fred, Afganishtan - Oct 2014
Shreyas, I spent two reinvigorating days and night in this wonderful facility accompanied with very good services. The staffs are truly great. I thank management for ensuring that the conditions exist to provide such comfort and peace of mind to guests. Please keep it up as a slip in standards can be easily noticed and may be more difficult to regain lost momentum. I loved the meals – they were delicious, all of them. Also the massage and yoga classes have been excellent. Keep it up, it is a wellness place. All the best.
Prema & Kumar, India - Oct 2014
Dear friends at Shreyas, this was our second visit and I can’t decide which one was better.:)) The service is excellent – we are treated as ‘special’ in every way. The attention to smallest details (flowers in room, on dining table, the positioning of our sandals, and just the way everyone greets and welcomes is very humbling and spiritually uplifting. The yoga and meditation sessions were deeply rewarding. The food – sheer bliss and so healthy too, We’ve had long nature walks and Shreyas really has an ambience that naturally turns a person inwards. Thank you all – we definitely hope to return soooon.:))
Happy diwali to all!! Love and blessings.
Suzanne & Hans, Germany - Oct 2014
This was a very wonderful time here in Shreyas. We enjoyed this time which passed too fast. Now we feel energized and fully powered for time at home. Thank you, all the teachers, personnel, doctor . . . .
Leng & Walter, Qatar - Oct 2014
Your motto: ‘Journey to self discovery’ is handled with perfection by your team and the faculties. The word ‘awareness’ in our daily life actions had been embedded in all the things we did and we are thankful for this. Nmamaste.
Sabrina Law, USA - Oct 2014
Thank you very much to all the staff at Shreyas. I had a wonderful stay. Will definitely return. With gratitude.
Sriram Karra, India - Oct 2014
We have seen 5 star hotels that celebrate material excess and then we’ve been to ashrams driven by ascetic minimalism and spiritual practices. This is the first time we’ve seen an attempt to blend the two – a place where we can reconnect without inner selves without worrying about doing the dishes! Loved the experience overall, in particular your staffs’ attention to detail and attending to the special needs of my pregnant wife. Well done!
Virginia Ling, USA - Oct 2014
Just some of the thoughtful services that were provided:
- Yoga teacher’s personal scarf, loaned to me when I casually mentioned that I felt cold.
- Extra mosquito repellent put out during yoga session.
- Impromptu cooking lessons with the staff in the staff area after community service.
They are just some of the personal touches that the stellar staffs provide. This retreat is more than a place to practice yoga, it is a sanctuary to relax, rejuvenate and rebuild life!
Reina Hinds, West Indies - Oct 2014
Coming to the retreat all the way from the Caribbean was an adventure but I was in no way prepared for the spiritual and emotional breakthrough that I would have. The surroundings and the fact that everyone (staff) is all in tuned spiritually naturally lends itself to being a spiritual haven; but the depth of inner peace and quietness of the mind and spirit that I experienced was unexpected and unbelievable. I cannot express enough how much Mr. Bala played an integral role in the start of what can only be described as my spiritual journey. For that I will be forever grateful and eternally indebted. The energy and positive vibrations that this place has is unlike anything that I have ever experienced and I cannot wait to tell people about it and also come back. Thank you all for the most memorable experience of my life! Namstey.
Edith Davis, India - Oct 2014
This was the best experience of my life. The food is healthy and taste delicious, the staff and everyone who works are nice. The yoga, massages, meditation and breathing classes have made my life better and the facility is extremely clean. Thanks for making my stay wonderful and unforgettable.
Gabi & Zolton Kamon, USA - Oct 2014
We had an OUTSTANDING time at Shreyas. Thank you so much for all the attention to details and the lovely service. This place is out of the world and will stay in our heart forever.
Katja Walter, Germany - Oct 2014
Dear yogis, doctors and staff, Shreyas is just heaven to me. I am glad I had the opportunity to experience heaven in India. I love all your thoughts about attention to detail. You really understand the concept of service. The cuisine served at Shreyas is outstanding, excellent choices of vegetarian meals – this must be the magic talent of the chefs. Thank you very much for making my stay unforgettable. I am going to tell everyone about Shreyas and the way to self discovery. A very special thank you to Santosh (for being excellent in his service), to Ramakant (for being a inspiration), to Rita (for advice and thoughts to be continued), to Vidhya (for magical moments). I hope to see you all again. Take care and keep this place as it is. You all are doing great!!! All the best.
Sanjay Sharma and Anand Rathi, India - Oct 2014
First time at a resort like this. Exceeded our expectations. Great place to unwind, peaceful and rejuvenating. Love to come back. Thanks to everybody – the people, the yoga teachers, the chefs and the administrators.
Fiona Riley, Australia - Oct 2014
This place will always hold a special spot in my heart. It’s magical, rejuvenating and so beautiful. My time here has been too short but I plan to return one day and will highly recommend Shreyas to all my friends.
Elly Chen, USA - Sept 2014
Had an amazing time. Special thanks to the staff and teachers who made me feel cared for and inspired. Will definitely tell all my friends.
Meeta, Bangalore - Sept 2014
Everything at Shreyas is perfect – the surroundings, the people, the yoga. That’s why I will keep coming back.
Alexis, USA - Sept 2014
Sigh, it is time to leave already?! Feeling so fortunate to have had even 48 hours at Shreyas, and all to myself. Nevertheless, a perfect private oasis! I am leaving with my belly full (best food ever!), body relaxed and mind awakened. A beautiful space for a journey of the ‘heart and soul’. Thank you from a weary traveler!
Didier and Sophie, Paris - Sept 2014
We came old and tired . . . . We leave Shreyas - young and in good health! We were alone during our stay like a King and Queen!!! Congratulations to you all.
Rajpal Singh, India - Sept 2014
A very good resort and good service. We shall come back soon.
Elizabeth and Karen, USA - Sept 2014
A wonderful place to unwind - learn about a lot here, people are very humble here. Very transparent – in sharing recipes and knowledge of yoga and treatment. Would love to come here again and definitely would recommend family and friends!! Very peaceful and tranquil place.
Thank you very much to all at Shreyas for crafting a fabulous, refreshing and rejuvenating (and all too short) retreat for two slightly city waery guests. We loved every moment, particularly the lovely table settings and wholesome, delicious food!
Catherine, London - Sept 2014
Mr. Ramegowda told me that the flower garland given on arrival represents how the team at Shreyas treat their guests - as Gods and it is true! My ‘silent’ stay has been profound and amazing. I see things in a new light and I want to thanks every single one of you for all the love and kindness you show in every day here. The flowers in the room, at the meal tables, the switching shoes around so they are easy to step in to . . . . And that’s not all, the delicious food, ayurvedic massage, great steam room and the yoga instruction (amazing) and the meditation (revelatory) . . . Love.. love.. love..
Niculin, Switzerland - Sept 2014
A great intensive Ayurveda week just to recover from busy stressful life. Was again a great experience here at the quiet big park from Shreyas. Thanks to all the people here on what they do so nicely for guests. It’s really a pleasure to share time and get nice knowledge from your side. Massages were again so nice an experience. All the yoga sessions with adjustments/corrections gave me an impression that I had private lessons all the time. Thanks for the nice food even though I did a 5 day detox. Will be lovely to be here a third time to meditate and share experiences with you. Once again, thank you very much indeed and see you soon.:))
Saranjit, London - Sept 2014
Thank you so much to the whole team at Shreyas. Another peaceful and thought provoking stay. I am feeling well looked after and with some strength to look forward. Sad to go but I am looking forward to coming back for the 5th time to learn more! Thank you once again.
Hilolo, Germany - August 2014
Dear Shreyas, I have nothing to add to my wives note. I just want to comment on the beautiful meals and lunches we had. The cooks are really amazing. Never had such a variety of food in my life. So, thanks again also from me. Kind Regards.
Heather, Germany - August 2014
Dear Shreyas, there are not many words to describe such an outstanding place as the experience of ‘Shreyas’ goes beyong the ‘word’. As a guest, but also a teacher I also had the unique and wonderful opportunity to interact with the staff and teachers in class and beyond. It was such an honor to teach them regularly and to feel their level of commitment. ‘Shreyas’ is truly a journey toward the ‘self’ and coming to remember who we really are. But beyond what is offered, it is the people who make a place and the right combination of attention, and love given. Speaking as a mother too, it was so helpful to have the baby cared for! Many thanks is not enough to say! See you again! Best and kind regards. Yes indeed, we all have never eaten so very well with 3 meals a day! And a great variety of food, amazing!!
I loved the flowers on the table, the nice service and our foot wear being turned around!!
Heather Morton, Canadian (Living in Germany).
Pier, Germany - August 2014
Dear Shreyas: (A note from Pier)
Thank you for the wonderful stay. I felt everything was a s wonderful, I got a little overwhelmed at times. Thank you to the wonderful and kind ladies who took care of me. I also enjoyed and appreciated the meals that were made especially for me as I am a fussy eater!:-)) Thank you for caring and looking out for me.
I look forward TO PLAYING WITH YOU AGAIN! Love and hugs.
Pier (1 year old son of Heather), Germany.
Bhaskar, Ghaziabad - August 2014
It was an entirely different experience with a warm and accommodating ambience. The arrangement and deco emanates the beauty of nature and spirituality. The response of the staff to even simpler needs have been spontaneous and always satisfactory. The journey of self discovery as they say is not an easy task but this was a great beginning. With best wishes.
Marie, Paris and UAE - August 2014
Thank you very much to everyone in the Shreyas team for making the time spent with you sp peaceful, and so special. I enjoyed every aspect of my stay here, the beautiful garden, the quality of the attention we were getting from the staff, the delicious food, the very interesting meditation and breathing sessions and the quality of the conversations. Even if I don’t feel like leaving this place (as Bala told us, we cannot run away from our present life) but at least now I know where I can escape to find peace.;)) It makes me very grateful and happy to know that a place like Shreyas exists in this crazy world. I hope I have the chance to come back here. Thank you very much.
P.S - I also enjoyed a lot all the books available here. Read a great one.
Hamshy, USA - August 2014
Dear Shreyas team,
Thank you for a wonderful experience. Although I was here for a very short time, I am leaving a lot more centered, rejuvenated and energized. The staff at Shreyas has been incredibly attentive, providing excellent service. The facilities are second to none, and the food is extraordinary. Lastly, special thanks to Dr. Rachana, Ramakant, Bala and Santosh for making my experience totally enjoyable.
Graham, Catharine, Sophie and Phoebe - UAE, August 2014
Dear Shreyas family,
Thank you for our amazing experience, the retreat truly surpassed all of our expectations in every way. Your staff are some of the most wonderful people and their service and attention to detail is remarkable (we loved the reverse of flip flops)! We would like to give a personal thanks to all the chefs for the best food we have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. This yoga retreat has pushed us to our limits, strengthened us and taught us unforgettable life lessons that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Once again thank you all for opening our eyes to the beauty of India and tranquility of yoga. We will be back soon, until next time.
Vijay and Asma, India - August 2014
Dear Shreyas family,
We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the warmth, hospitality and memorable stay at your retreat. Please do extend our gratitude to each and every staff member for making our stay comfortable. Personal thanks to the chef for the fabulous food on all three meals. An experience like this is often what’s needed to break from the humdrum of city life and take a step back and live precious life moments. Thank you, will visit again.
Sejal, UK - August 2014
Shreyas is an experience that I will cherish. It is so much more than what I expected. There was peace and tranquility and the rooms and overall décor was exquisite. The staff are lovely and so helpful and friendly. The yoga classes were brilliant and the breathing classes really pushed me out of my comfort zone. There is so much that I have taken from here that I hope will remain to change my life direction. Thank you to everyone at Shreyas.
P.S - Can I kidnap your chef, the food was incredible.;))
Zaheer, Canada - USA, August 2014
Our stay at Shreyas ended up being so much more than we had expected or imagined. As a family, we got to spend some quality time together, sharing yoga, fabulous food, massage experiences and so much more. Individually we experienced new insights about ourselves and how yoga can help us. The staff felt more like family; they were attentive (without being intrusive) and warm, anticipating our every need. We hope to be back! Thank you, thank you! Zaheer, with other loved ones from – Canada and USA
P.S- Even though I love meat, But I enjoyed the Veg food here immensely!!
Allison, USA - August 2014
My stay at Shreyas was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I appreciate each and every staff member for their attention to detail, thoughtfulness and kindness. This is a beautiful, clean and peaceful environment that I wish I could stay in forever. Though India is a far journey for me, my next visit, and any visit will always include a Shreyas experience. Thank you for everything!
P.S- Would love a cook book of all the delicious recipes! My favorite dessert while here was the apple brownie!
Nicholas, Mauritius - August 2014
I needed to make a break and I discovered a new way of living. Outstanding service and a unique touch in everything, at anytime, Shreyas isn’t an hotel, it’s an experience, a wonderful experience! Words aren’t enough to describe how grateful I am to all the team that contributes to create such magic. Shreyas will always have a special place in my heart.
Priya, UAE - August 2014
Disneyland for Yoga – healthy, relaxing in a green lush environment, with the most (foodie people) tasty vegetarian food! Shreyas – an unique delight, a well kept secret away from the big city lights. Amazing service from the beginning to departure. In a nutshell, I wish I could stay here forever!!
Kinis, India - August 2014
We had a great time at Shreyas. I surpassed all our expectations – we live in Bangalore, an hour away and had not heard of Shreyas until now and you can bet we’re going to spread the word! Your staff is ever so attentive and we loved the attention to detail, so rare in the world of hospitality and so appreciated! The atmosphere is perfect and we’re leaving completely rejuvenated. Thanks Shreyas.
Mohini, USA - August 2014
Thanks a lot for everything, the amazing service and wonderful people at Shreyas. I had the best 3 days, very relaxing. I hope to come back every year as this place has given me a lot of motivation.
Roberts, UK - August 2014
Thank you so much for making my (too short) stay here so wonderful. I’ve had the most lovely couple of days with you at the end of a very busy time here in Bangalore and am going to make sure I come back to explore the 8 limbs of yoga further . . . . Thank you so much, it really has been amazing and the massages out of this world!
Karen, USA - August 2014
Thank you for an amazing escape from the noise, dust and stress of the city. I spent a lovely weekend during my business trip to Bangalore. It couldn’t have been better. The food is simply amazing – flowers, variety and experience is out of the world. I am very sad not to be able to continue being surprised and delighted with the next meal. The staff has been amazing and so attentive to every need. I hope to come back again. Best.
Karthik, India - August 2014
,I came to visit Shreyas thanks to my wife Vaishnavi. She believes and practices yoga at home. At first, when she told me about this place, I was a bit skeptical. However, my stance turned into that of a pleasant surprise once I arrived here. The place was calm, peaceful and welcoming. We rested well, explored the wonderful vegetable garden. I had a good Balinese massage and was able to distress and rejuvenate at this place. My wife attended yoga sessions, had a massage and she loved it too. The staff were very helpful and courteous during my visit. They also helped me my birthday and I was pleasantly surprised. This is an amazing retreat, and I would definitely visit again.
Shaila – China July, 2014
I have enjoyed every minute of my stay at Shreyas. This is a completely new experience for me and I will surely go back a different person. I would rate everything here as ‘7 Star’ from the facilities to the accommodation and the staff who are phenomenal. They have made me feel at home. Mani and Rita have been absolutely fabulous, and I feel like I have learnt so much from them. I would definitely like to make this a yearly thing now and will aim to be back next year with friends. I hope the integrity and sincerity of this place always stays as pristine as it is now. My stay at Shreyas has been an experience of a life time for me and I will cherish these memories forever! Thank you.:))
Shreyas, India July, 2014
Thank you for the fabulous time we had. After a stressful few weeks it is amazing to be back at Shreyas to unwind and just rejuvenate our self. We have been coming for the last five years and the service, ambience and quality has only gotten better.
Zoe, UK July, 2014
Thank you all so much for a wonderful stay. I was expecting to have an enjoyable week and it surpassed all my expectations! From the attention to detail of the staff in taking care of our living quarters to the generosity, professionalism and patience of the yoga teachers, not to mention the superb cuisine, everything was simply perfect! I would recommend Shreyas whole-heartedly to anyone and am leaving transformed! Many thanks to all the wonderful staff who have made my say so pleasurable; Rita and Mani, Shoba and Vidhya, Dr.Arun, Rucha, Bala and the kitchen staff who took such marvelous care of us. It made it one of the most amazing experiences ever!
Andrea – USA July, 2014
I had a very short stay but enjoyed every minute of it! The room and facilities are beautiful and serene. I enjoyed every unscheduled moment as much as I did the yoga, meditation, and massage! The food and service were amazing! Shreyas is a very special place. I hope to return for a longer stay someday! Thank you to all here!
Laura & Sara, USA & Sweden July, 2014
Padma, Chennai July, 2014

To the entire team at Shreyas, a big thank you from the bottom of my heart. I came here on my first solo getaway to do some thinking and reconnect with the yogic way of life. The Shreyas experience and every element of it enabled me to do that. Green and serene! Thanks for the warmth and special attention to detail. The yoga and meditation certainly helped me clear my mind and I am filled with good vibrations.
Haifa & Lubna, Jeddah - March 2014
Dear Staff, beautiful setting and gardens, very friendly and competent staff, excellent value. Nice to have met you. 🙂
Kaine & CJ, France - April 2014
It was our first yoga experience and we don't think it could have been any better! Yoga instructors were excellent, so was the food and the atmosphere.

Lakshmi, India - March 2014
I am delighted we picked Shreyas for our family to come together from different parts of the world. We were able to bond together in a serene universe away from the distractions of city life. We were extended the highest level of service every one of our needs was attended to with warmth and friendliness. My elderly parents were treated with great courtesy. The food was superb elegant cuisine cooked just right. I would particularly like to mention Arun, Santosh, Krishna, Jack and Lakshmi I will miss them all. The family will remember this as a memorable vacation. Thank you Shreyas.
Sara, UK - March 2014
Thank you so much for an amazing experience. I have found the place that will bring me calmness and strength to face up with normal life back home. This visit has exceeded my expectations in every way. My yoga has improved vastly and now I can practice Pranayama, thanks to Rita. I would definitely recommend this place to all my friends and Ill be back in the near future.
Barbara, UK - March 2014
I suppose that returning to Shreyas for a third time speaks volumes, but nonetheless I did wonder before I arrived whether the magic would still be there. Within seconds of arriving I knew that nothing had changed and the wonderful warmth of the staff and the lovely smiling faces have just wrapped around me in a perfect cocoon. My only regret is that I have only stayed one week. Thank you to every one of the staff who have helped to restore some calm and serenity back into my life. All your little touches make me feel very special and cared for. You are all incredible! I will be back for visit number four very soon.
Cathy, Canada - March 2014

Brenda & Samuel - March 2014
Dear doctors, staff and yogis; it was a long way from Vermont, USA! And we are grateful, grateful that you were on our path. The journey of travelers overload was brought to a Nirvana pause at Shreyas Retreat. And to retreat to my inner world was sorely needed. So, thank you for the beauty of the trees, the garden, the cow and calf, the tender care by all involved. Your attention to detail is perfection. And my yoga classes and meditations proved to be deep and revealing. Namaste to each of you. Love.
Carole, Belgium - March 2014
Amazing! All here is a dream: people, place, friendly like a family. Thank you so much. With love.

This is my first time at Shreyas and I was able to achieve one of the most peaceful and relaxing weekends of my life. The yoga classes were so lovely, the instructors were very instructive.

To you all at Shreyas, how can we begin to thank you enough for our wonderful stay with you it was far too short but we will be back. The peace, tranquility is just what we needed after a long journey. So our massages, newly learnt breathing, yoga, meditation, Pranayama was just perfect. Your setting, gardens, fruits, vegetable gardens are an inspiration. We are ready to go home and get ready t plant in the spring. Your staff are faultless, kind, so helpful and attentive to our every need. We have never felt hungry, the food was delicious. Our room was cozy, beautifully planned for comfort with a great bed and sympathetic calming decor. I wish I could take you all home with me but will love to settle for coming back to see you all again soon. A HUGE thank you to you all for your kindness and patience.
Venia, Taiwan - February 2014

Thank you all the yoga teachers for the wonderful classes and the conversations, you guys are truly awesome and youve made me realize what yoga is really about as well as life. Thank you, the kind and attentive restaurant staff for providing the best vegetarian food Ive ever had and service. I really wanted to lose a few pounds during my stay but, it was just not possible. :-)) Thank you my two beautiful and caring massage therapists, your magic hands have comforted me so much . . . . Thank you to the people who make my room so comfy everyday and make this place so beautiful and tranquil . . . . I am more than fortunate to be taken care by you when I most needed it.

Jessica & Vikas, Bangalore USA - February 2014
It only took one day and night here to feel like our life in busy, downtown Bangalore was far, far away. The setting, the yoga, the food, the massage all helped us feel completely relaxed and content. We love the trees and the waking up to the birds in the morning. The staff was so kind and accommodating and we truly appreciate how much they helped us hit our first cricket bowls in the batting cage! Hoping to stay much longer next time!
Allison, India USA - February 2014
This is certainly a memorable experience. It is not often you have the opportunity to spend a week living amidst nature in a beautiful environment, surrounded by beautiful people. I wish I could write a personalized thank you to each staff person recognizing their contributions to my stay. From the well-tended room, the flower displays, the delicious meals, the well planned schedules, the tailored Yoga Pranayama meditation sessions, the beautiful grounds I could go on and on. I will take back the things I have learned here and reinforce them in my daily life. I hope to return sometime in the future. Thank you, thank you!
Kym, Australia - February 2014
To all the humble, happy, beautiful staff at Shreyas, words cannot express how much I have enjoyed and benefitted from my 6 nights at your tranquil, gorgeous slice of heaven here.

Marianne, Switzerland - February 2014
Dear all and my dearest staff, my second stay was again amazing and I felt very special. The treatments as well as the environment were just perfect, inspiring, emotional, peaceful and happy. The food I had the whole week was more than delicious and attending a cooking class was a wonderful experience. I will again come back to this magic place to relax and find my own peace of mind. Love.
Marlene, The Netherlands - February 2014
Dear All, I am sad to leave this little paradise but so very happy to have had the experience to stay here, although it was short! The staff was most helpful and knowledgeable.

Jessica, Canada - February 2014
My stay at Shreyas was blissful. The Yoga, meditation, food, service and aura of the place couldn't be better. You feel part of a community as soon as you arrive and very quietly realize you don't want to leave. So grateful to the amazing attentive staff who made it an amazing few days.
Holly, Canada - February 2014
An amazing experience for mind, body and soul. I appreciate your dedication to yoga philosophy and for providing me with the opportunity to be a participant.

Ruth, UK - February 2014
This has been the best place I have been it's been the best journey I have ever started and its been a life changing experience. The staff have been amazing. From fantastic yoga instructors to meditation that I finally got the hang of. My compliments to the chef. The food was consistently fantastic, loved all the Indian cuisine (and the chocolate cake!). The housekeeping staff and dining room staff couldn't do enough for me, they were so helpful. I really can't explain how much I appreciated all their help. Thank you so much, it really has been a great place for me to look after myself.

Sandrine & Herve, France - February 2014
Heavenly place for both of us. If only we could hide somewhere and stay here . . . ! I was particularly pleased by the yoga classes as I had severe back pain and was given very useful exercises and postures to help me deal with it and correct it. Thank you to everyone.
Amrote - February 2014
Thank you very much for the wonderful service. It has been a great experience, I will make sure that others also come and stay here. Thank you!
Cynthia - February 2014
The harmony and beauty of this place are sublime plus the thought and consideration that's gone into their construction and the minute care that goes into their maintenance. And the range of resources available. I think there's too much food however and too many things go on plates at meals. My room is rather dark and there's no plug in the bathroom sink. Staff morale and manners tip top but no centre or office or person seemed to me available to question or complain to. P.S.: I loved the color schemes at meal times.
Marion & Paul - February 2014
Our stay at Shreyas has been first class; the atmosphere of the grounds is amazing. The staff go out of their way to make your stay comfortable and do everything they can do to please us. We stayed at Shreyas last year and again this year and aren't disappointed. Thank you to everyone, you made our stay amazing.
Yasmina - February 2014

Hooteshwaree & Nishant, Mauritius - January 2014
A welcome break from the daily grind. Had a pleasant stay, enjoyed all the activities. Felt enriched and rejuvenated by the end of our stay. Our deepest thanks goes to all the staff who made our stay special. Would definitely come again.
Bruno, France - January 2014
A second stay in Shreyas and still in love with the place even more . . . Shreyas spells grace in everything and everyone. The staff, each one of them, is efficient, sensitive, helpful, attentive, and friendly and gracious. It is an oasis in this busy, frenzied world, where one can truly rejuvenate, relax, come closer to nature and to one's own true self. Thank you so much for being what and who you are. We hope to be here again, and again and again.

JBB - January 2014
Shreyas, thank you for all your service, which was so respectfully done for our special requests. It was an experience between a stay in a hotel and an ashram. Very thoughtfully done. Namaskar
Sunita, India - January 2014
The Shreyas experience could not be better. From the moment we got here, every aspect of our stay has been perfect. The staff is so kind, pleasant and attentive. Every detail is well thought out. The amenities such as the steam are lovely. As well as the room and food! The yoga, meditation, Pranayama instructors are extremely proficient.

Thank you to all the staff at Shreyas for a wonderful stay. Every detail is looked after and nothing is too much trouble. A special thank you to Ramakant for coming in on his day off to teach me yoga.
Mia, Lisa & Goran - January 2014
We rarely go back to the same place for holiday, as you easily get disappointed if you have great expectations. But with Shreyas, we decided to risk it since we had such lovely experience last time. And we are not disappointed on the contrary. It was an even better experience this time. It is the thought to every detail, even those you do not notice. But most of all I would say it is the STAFF that fill this beautiful place with the ambience it has. A special thank you to Rucha and Balaji who spent so much extra time to help us. We wish you all well and really hope to be back at Shreyas soon again.
Sara & Paula, UK - January 2014
What can I say it has been such an amazing experience . . . from the moment you enter Shreyas, you start to feel relaxed. The staff cannot do enough for you and ensure that your every need is met. We feel extremely lucky to have experienced hospitality of this level. The yoga and massage has been enjoyable, food has been amazing. Thank you so much to all the staff for an unforgettable stay.
Tessa, Australia - Januaey 2014

Sue, Australia - January 2014
This was our second visit and I enjoyed it even more than the first time! Many thanks to all the staff who have just been fabulous.

Thank you and until next time . . .

It was a wonderful stay at Shreyas! Every single aspect was great the yoga sessions, food, ambience, staff service, the 3 bed room cottage. I think what made this trip the best experience is the people I meet. The staff are friendly and genuine. All guests are friendly and interesting. I am glad I have spent my holidays here and I wish to be back again soon! Excellent family!
Andrea, Dubai - December 2013

Harriet, Hong Kong - December 2013
Shreyas is one of the best Yoga retreats definitely. The retreat is beautiful, cozy, and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. I was really impressed by their attention to detail. It's all these personal services that melt your heart! The Ashtanga classes and massages are so good that I had 2 classes per day, and the massage almost every day. The visit to the orphanage was so meaningful to me. Their performance here on X'mas day was really fantastic. Excellent food here as well. I cannot have enough good words about the service standards here. I don't think anyone can beat Shreyas! Just love it here, and thanks to every staff members here and hope to be back soon.
Jala, Dubai - December 2013
Dear Shreyas family, I was here only 2 months ago. I came back at the first chance and I will definitely come many other times and will bring all the people I love so they enjoy this marvelous placea paradise on earth. The staff are the warmest and friendly people I have ever met in any other tourist attraction. Beautiful setting,. Comfortable. Clean, efficient - down to the smallest detail. THANK YOU for giving me this lovely time.
Harini & family, Amsterdam & India - December 2013
Thanks you! For an AMAZING and restful end to the year. The incredible attention to detail from everyone of the staff, Mani who welcomed us(and gave our first facial), Jack who took care of my mom, Santosh and Arun in the dining room, I could go on, but it is really the great attitude that sets Shreyas apart. I loved coming back and look forward to being back soon! Have a great 2014! Love.

My second time here and it won't be my last. The little touches constantly surprised me, and the 4 girls giving the treatments looked after me so well I felt very nurtured in their strong hands. Thanks Dr. Arun for accommodating my ever-changing schedule so gracefully, Ramakant best yoga teacher Ive ever had. Thanks to all.

Diane, USA - December 2013
I wasn't sure what to expect from Shreyas but can say that what I got exceeded any notions I could have had. I arrived very anxious after a traumatic event and Shreyas was the best therapy I could have dreamt of. I am leaving much more educated about health but also about what service should really be about as this place has set the bar really high and is successful. Thanks so much for being who each of you are individually and collectively. This was not only a break but a time for me to break into a new way of living in terms of food, exercise, treatments and always striving to enhance my knowledge about yoga, meditation etc. Many thanks.
Ariadna, UK - December 2013

Therese, Switzerland - December 2012
The journey of a thousand miles begins beneath one's feet. Lao Tzu regarded action as something that arises naturally from stillness. I have found stillness of Shreyas and sowed the seeds

Suresh, India - November 2013
I reached here through Google search and after being here for three days it seems like this place was made to order. Whatever I wanted in a relaxing place was here and nothing extra. The greenery, the vegetable garden, the Spa were all great. The chanting sessions and the hatha yoga session were simply great and above all the GREAT food and the grace in service, smile and Namaste by all. It was great to be part of Shreyas family. I will be back soon again and hopefully again and again.

Anisa, India - November 2013
Shreyas has been an absolutely perfect combination of luxury and wellness. The grounds and facilities are all that I wanted. Beautifully serene. The staff is what set Shreyas apart so very accommodating, and responsive to every need. And what I appreciated the most was how despite having taken a package there was room for flexibility and was able to personalize it to my needs and wants. Thank you, I will be back.
Karen & Lucy, November 2013
Shreyas has been restorative and the staff superb. The combination of wellness, simplicity and luxury is unique and contributes to an overall sensation of feeling nurtured. Thank you for making all our requests a reality the trip into Bangalore was so well organized and I appreciate the effort that went into making it happen (thank you Rucha). Although we did not take a package we would advise others to do so. We were able to make our own self-styled package but also did not stay long enough to see and do all that is available. I hope to return. Would love to go to see the palaces in the area.
Farah, November 2013
This is truly paradise on earth!! Staying at Shreyas was a life changing experience. It is a unique, peaceful and magical place. A huge thanks to all the staff for taking care of my every needs. I will definitely come back. Many many thanks.

Shreyas is the place to be if you are looking for peace, rejuvenation and learn about Yoga and meditation. I have had a very peaceful and relaxing time staying here for seven nights. The staff of Shreyas is really special. I am a non-vegetarian but have not missed any chicken or meat as the food from breakfast to dinner is really very nice. A special thanks to the doctor who is such a nice and caring person. All the best for the future.
Marilyn - October 2013
Such care and attention! Shreyas came highly recommended and has fully lived up to expectations. It has offered a magical environment in which to deepen my yoga practice. The wisdom and experience of the teachers and the warmth, kindness and professionalism of all staff have made the whole a very profound and enriching experience. With heartfelt thanks.
Caroline - October 2013
Sitting in my room Vairagya, which is most appropriate for my state of mind to achieve. The rain pouring on the roof of my tent, I am filled with pleasure once again having spent only one week with you. I would stay another week, month or year if I could. Everything I loved and remembered from my last visit is still in place, with more improvements if that is possible. The staff at Shreyas are a joy to meet every day and exceptional at what they do whatever that may be. I have watched the garden be transformed this week by careful and gentle gardeners and my body has been transformed by Vidya with her massages. I will of course be back again and sooner than I can hope. Thank you for the peace, calm and serenity you give with such care and love.
Dana & Tamir, World citizens - October 2013

Tracey, Australia - October 2013
Finding myself a little lot stresses with my everyday life, I thought a yoga retreat sounded just about right. I did how ever find my stay more than a retreat; it became a holistic rebuild that exceeded my expectations. Shreyas is pure paradise, thank you.:-))
Jala - October 2013
This is exactly the holiday I have been looking for ever where and finally I enjoyed it hence I will ask Trip Advisor to create a grade over fabulous so I can place Shreyas in this grade. My most thanks is due to the most friendly, attentive, professional staff of Shreyas. The landscape is amazing and I just love the idea of tents, so comfortable. Many thanks for giving me this wonderful time, I will be back very soon!:-))

Ayesha, India - October 2013
It is with fond memories and joy I go back today, home but I will return to this wonderful sanctuary of peace and wellness soon. Shreyas, has a wonderful aura around it, you could feel it in every nook and corner of this countless-acres property. The staff here are the most courteous and welcoming, making you feel like a part of a bog family. I have never imagined it to be so perfect, when I found it online, coming here was bliss! Thank you, for everything. P.S:- Try the Yoga Nidra, its surely something youll treasure.
Nitu, UK - October 2013
The food was divine; every meal was wonderful and energizing. This really has been an experience of a lifetime and has taught me so much about myself. It's left me so much keen to learn more and hopefully one day return. Big thanks to Rita for her wonderful teaching and Dr.Rachana for all her wise words and knowledge and Bala for giving me the most wonderful and moving meditation experience, this is something that will stay with me forever.
Sabine, Paris, US India - September 2013
Shreyas, what an amazing place. This has been an incredible experience. I really feel blessed to have been able to stay at Shreyas. I came totally burned out and after 6 days, I leave feeling that all is possible, that it is up to me. Saying thank you is not enough for all the great moments at Shreyas. The great yoga teachers, adjusting their teaching to fit my lack of experience, my aching, stiff body. The amazing staff, taking gentle cares of all your needs (even turning your shoes!!) the delicious food. The beautiful surroundings and the kindness of all. This is really a unique place; you have succeeded in creating a little place of heaven on earth. I cannot wait to come back. I would recommend the tented room even if you come alone, no issue here in Shreyas. Thank you for all the coconut water.

Mr. and Mrs. Abbas, Oman - December
Being our first time in a Yogic retreat, we were not expecting anything more than what we read from the website what we found was nothing less than amazing!! Upon reaching Shreyas, you are transported into a magical world that is both familiar yet close to nature. The food was out of this world, the chef caters to every diet and even if youre not a vegetarian youll love the food.Whatever your hearts content you will find it here... The food, the Yoga, meditation, Ayurveda as well as the many luxuries of a 5 star resort. It will be sad to leave this wonderful place but we will sure make arrangements to come back soon. Many thanks to Shreyas staff for making this trip so memorable!! Warmest thanks,

Christin, Germany - November
5 days might not be such a long time, if it is any 5 days in a month at a random place- 5 days at Shreyas have passed and they feel like a much longer journey, with each day filled with new learning, new discoveries, new bliss, new loving and caring encounters. You all have made the journey of each day here a wonderful and blissful one. I want to thank you all very much for making this a very special time! While I will miss the beauty and tranquility of Shreyas, I am filled with it and so much more to take home
Christin, Germany - November 2012

Debbie, UK - November
What can I say about this wonderful place, we arrived tired, stressed and full of toxins. Every single member of the staff here has made us feel like royalty. I feel I have learnt so much in the short week I have had here. All the Yoga teachers are superb and really dowalk the talk. Bala has really taught me a lot about the philosophy and I appreciate his spiritual teachings, I will never forget him. The Ayurveda Doctor (Jaya) has been so thorough and knowledgeable. The serving staff serves with love and kindness. To be honest, I could go on forever and I could really find anything bad or negative to say aboutShreyas. Thank you everyone for welcoming Anne & I, we love you!

Loved the yoga classes, they were very professional and felt the beauty of the environment more enhanced by the giving nature of the teachers. God bless them.

Jayanthan, Lalitha & Shivani (4 years old), India - September 2013
We decided to stay at Shreyas after a research from the net and the rave reviews it had received. I must say that we received/experienced all that we hoped for and more. The place is heavenly, the hospitality unparalleled and the experience totally awesome with the body, mind and soul being replenished, relaxed and rejuvenated. I would specially like to thank all the staff for the attitude with which they served attended on us. The attention to detail like any particular preference had to be mentioned only once, the slippers at the doorstep kept in order so we could just conveniently slip on and leave, the beautiful and varied flower arrangements at the dinner table and so much, much more Overall the most unique experience we ever had on any holiday this far. May the Lord always shower his choicest blessings on Shreyas and on everyone at Shreyas! God Bless! Thank you! Lots of good wishes, Namaste!

I loved my stay at Shreyas. I was here for 5 days and wished I stayed longer. Absolutely wonderful experience in every way Bala the meditation guru was very inspirational and accessible, cuisine was delicious, private yoga classes/sessions really helped me improve my practice. Massages with Vidhya Balinese massages were extraordinary. The environment was so beautiful so lush and great attention to every detail. The staff was so kind and took care of my every need. This was a very special experience that I will always treasure. I came with no expectations and feel entirely thrilled with how I feel - my body, mind and spirit are vitalized.
Jain, India - September 2013

Cooks gave me such delicious food. Waiters prepared for me such beautiful tables with fresh flowers. Masseurs made me so relaxed. Doctors have given me advice for my health.

Mehul & Miti, UK
This is our 4th stay at Shreyas and we are already planning our next visit! Everything here has been of the very highest standards; the environment ambience, food, classes and, most of all, the people here. They have always made us feel loved and valued in the way that our close family and friends love and value us. This is a feeling we have not experienced anywhere else we have been, which is why Shreyas continues to be at the top of our list of destinations whenever we plan our holidays. Thank you all, we wish you the very best and we are looking forward to seeing you again, soon.
Quiqke, USA - August 2013
This was my first stay at a yoga retreat and I'm quite certain that Shreyas has made it so I can never go to another one! The property, staff, food and entire experience were exceptional. All of my expectations were entirely exceeded. My only regret is not staying longer. Thank you!
Joyce & Clarence, Singapore - August 2013
The level of attention to detail the table settings, the flowers, the way our slippers are rearranged to face outwards when we come in, the way the garden staff and security are trained to greet guests bespeaks of the meticulous way Shreyas is organized and run. All this ensures a high level of comfort and care. Shreyas deserves its excellent reputation, as one of the 'top Ten Yoga Retreats in India(which is how I found out about this place and decided to come). Thanks and appreciation especially to Dr. Rachana, the ever patient and smiling Arun, Dr. Jaya, the yoga instructors Rita & Ramakant, the knowledgeable and serene Bala, Balaji & Nidhe for patiently answering my many emails before I came. We enjoyed ourselves so much, we can't wait to come again.
Helen, Canada - August 2013
This was my second stay at Shreyas and you lived up to the very high expectations you set during my first stay! Everything was perfect the classes, the food, the massages and of course the service.

What a wonderful place. We came here to relax and Shreyas definitely succeeded. Loved the small number of guests and beautiful surroundings. Food was amazing and the massages were excellent. Thank you!
Venky & Kavitha, India - August 2013
To start with, it was a wonderful experience for us in Shreyas. The service is outstanding. We have been in Bangalore for over 10 years but never knew that Shreyas existed. My special thanks to Mr. Ramakanth who was very courteous and took us around the garden. Mrs. Jaya listened to our needs and gave us useful tips that we can follow. Mr. Bala's knowledge and wisdom was something inspiring though we spoke to him for less than 10 minutes. Came to know more about body, mind and soul. Finally a 7 star experience, will visit again.
Saritha & Dhayalan, India - August 2013

Iddoshe, Japan - July 2013
To the wonderful Shreyas staff, Thank you for the wonderful experience!

I hope to return soon for a longer visit. Namaste & shukriya
Ram, India & USA - July 2013
I am back for my seventh visit and it is reassuring to see all familiar, welcoming faces. The overall quality remains high and the cuisine is outstanding. The new menus are great and add to the diversity. I am grateful to have this tranquil paradise just an hour from my home when I am in Bangalore.
Jung & Aki , India- July 2013

To dearest Shreyas team, Thank you for creating a real paradise on earth. Everything was fantastic and better than anywhere else. I have ever been. I will miss everyone, beautiful staff, good food, trees, flower, birds singing and all different sounds and noises. Everyone work together so beautifully and with such a calm sense of common purpose and have created a place that is a true Oasis. I have learned so much from all the practices here and will cherish the memory of this lovely time. With God's will, we will love to come back.

Jasmine, UAE - July 2013
Absolutely loved every bit if this tranquil heaven. I wish it were more easily accessible (I am from Dubai). The food is marvelous, the place is gorgeous and the people add the saffron and the garnish to it all! I will come back sooner or later, but in the meantime I will keep sending friends and family.:-) The ashram is a wonderful cause, and it's a great initiative by the management and staff who devote time and energy to keep those kids going. Thank you! See you SOON!

My wife & I came here to have a quiet vacation for our 50th wedding anniversary. This was very admirably hosted by my two daughters. Yes it is something to remember. Some discounts for the rooms could have been better.
Rajen, Dubai - June 2013
To the team at Shreyas, This was my first visit to this glorious place and it has been exceptional end to end. The team is so thoughtful and considerate; we have been blown away. From the yoga, the spa treatments, the meditation and the various classes each aspect has been fantastic. The cuisine has been delicious every time and so varied, it was a treat not to have to think about the menu and we looked forward to each meal with delight. The trip to the orphanage and meeting the children full of happiness and love and energy was truly inspirational and it is beautiful what Shreyas is doing here in Bangalore. My time here has been brief but truly amazing and I thank Aliya for encouraging me to join her here. I am sure we will be back soon on a longer visit to get deeper into the yoga and further along our spiritual journey. Thank you.

This is my second visit to Shreyas whilst working in Bangalore, and once again it's not long enough. Excellent service from all the staff, which is a welcome change in Bangalore . . . Thanks for such a great, relaxing experience that has recharged my batteries.
Ruchika & Nikhil, India - June 2013
Shreyas has reinstated the belief that Indian Hospitality knows no bounds. We have felt welcomed, cared for and at complete peace. Right from when we reached and met Mr Manikant to the anniversary surprise of decorating our room, the staff left no stone unturned to comfort us. Small details like umbrellas, shoes turned in the right, never to ask for room service incensing at yoga centre- All of this added to the happiness. I WILL COME BACK AGAIN! Thank You!! Please maintain the excellence and bring guests newer ways of rejuvenation each time they return.
Jessica and Benedicta, Tanzania - June 2013
Thank you very much for a wonderful stay and hospitality. The food was the best - as a meat-lover didn't miss it at all. Will definitely come back again.

Thank you all for giving Kumar & me such a lovely & special time. Thank you for your love and generous kind gestures. Thank you for guiding us through all the health questions.

Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who met us . . .helped us . . . guided us and just smiled through it all. We will love to come back again . . . and again. We go back with better health, mentally and physically.
Samantha, France - May 2013
I arrived at Shreyas exhausted from work and tired, following winter illness and the last of all anemia. Although I only stayed 8 days- I would have loved to stay more but I could not- I leave this place rested, fully recovered and more peaceful. The food was SO GOOD that after the 2nd day after my arrival I started feeling much better. The yoga classes were FANTASTIC. Special thanks to Ramakanth for his wonderful ashtanga classes! Thank you to Rachana too, notably for her Pranayama classes. Thank you to Bala who invited me to meditation, Yoga Nidra and Trataka. The massages were fantastic. I will be coming back soon to this dream place! Thank you to all Shreyas staff for having my stay so wonderful! I wish I could have stayed longer. I was going to forget Thanks to the 2 ladies giving massages!
Aditi - May 2013

Charlie & Maren, Switzerland - May 2013
We can only agree on all the wonderful comments that we have read in this book. on all aspects of what you do and live here at Shreyas. One of us came here with a long-term physical problem that wasn't resolved over many years by western doctors. Incredible but true the pain in my partner's feet disappeared! I strongly believe in the spirituality of treatments. In this case, the healing power of the staff proved to be greater than the pain and discomfort. You will hear me telling everyone that wants to know.:-)) Thank you!
Maggie - May 2013
Life does not get any better than this.
Sivani - May 2013
From the moment I arrived at Bangalore airport I was greeted and given some water and hand towel by the friendly driver. The welcome I received at the retreat was like no other I have experienced. It really is the perfect place to come and rejuvenate, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. The meals were some of the best I have had and definitely enjoyed the fresh fruit juices, especially the coconut water. The classes were set outside in the midst of nature, with the sounds of birds in the backstage. It really was the best place to practice yoga. The best part for me was the massages I have never had such amazing massages before. I would definitely recommend Shreyas to my friends and hope to come back in the near future. Thanks, Shreyas
Robert, New Zealand - May 2013
Wow, I didn't expect a place like Shreyas. From the moment of arrival and the warm welcome, it has been sheer pleasure and delight every step of the way. Gentle and flowing yoga classes, nice massages, but don't forget the brilliant food. Thank you for the great stay, as Arnie says, Ill be back.
Marilyn, Canada - May 2013

A brief 3 day visit following 4 weeks working in Bangalore with an NGO. We arrived exhausted and are leaving feeling refreshed and reinvigorated.

Marion, USA - March 2013
After a whirlwind trip of Delhi & Rajasthan, it was so wonderful to have down time at Shreyas. Loved the Yoga classes, Massages, Breathing and Meditation classes, the food was simple yet tasty & home grown. As well, it was relaxing just to sit by the pool! Sad to leave but I am now ready to deal with the busyness of life. Thanks to all the fantastic staff for making my stay so enjoyable.

Tazim, Canada -January 2013
Where do I begin, there is so much to appreciate: the gardens, the food, the staff, the massages, the Yoga, the teachers, teachings. All of it was synchronized and harmonious with the senses, all my senses. Even though we were here for 3 days only, the relaxation and learning in the environment was manifold. I will be taking all of this back with fondness and certainly with the hope of returning back. Lots of fondness, warmest regards.
Debbie, Hong Kong - January 2013
Coming to Shreyas was one of the few decisions in my life that I can say I made an absolute right decision. Shreyas didn't just look after my physical needs; they looked after the needs of my mind and wellbeing. The experiences have been very personal- going home with hopes and understanding. Shreyas also helped me start a journey that I had been longing for. So much was given to me! I look forward to coming back.
Clare, UK - January 2013
Thank you Shreyas for yet another wonderful and truly relaxing stay- this is such a special place. There is no other like it. It's been the most spoiling and relaxing week, I feel like a different person from when I arrived. A big thank you to everyone here that made our stay so special.
Sharon, UK - January 2013
The end of a fabulous holiday and the start of a brand new year full of hope and a full list of new year's resolutions if I refer back to Dr. Jaya's report! The food and service were excellent, day after day, after day. Even my 6:00 am green potion I became rather fond of after my good morning madam call. Mani + Dr. Prarthana- the Yoga was a challenge (I'm new to it) and very enjoyable. I will definitely return to the UK more bendy than I arrived! Bala- “Thank you. Since our 1:1 conversation. I have felt lighter on my feet. Your comments, insight + calmness are a powerful combination. You have a rare and precious talent. And a great smile! I enjoyed meditation much more towards the end as I learnt to sit still! Rame- you have been fabulous + funny in equal measures. And as we laughed about a lot this week youre everywhere I turn. Watching you and Vinod in the kitchen was a delight. My mind was over whelmed with information and ideas are you still with me Am I allowed a second page ... Shobha + Vidhya- I think you knew my body better than I do! Thank you for caring for me this week and helping me relax. We got there today, didn't we? Thank you also for relieving my very sore back. I have an excuse to buy a smaller handbag at the airport now! Dr. Jaya- I promise I will keep my bedroom tidy from now on! On a serious note, time with you has been enlightening. So many little adjustments I can make plus some larger changes. Thank you. Ramesh- thank you for your safe driving + company in Bangalore this week. I enjoyed the day out was good to get back though. Thank you also for the lady who massaged me today with Shobha. Apologies I don't know how to spell your name. You were great. Also thank you to the staff that looked after our house and attempted to tidy my room! Bed time now. And I don't think I should steal another page! Thank you all. Happy 2013. Love.
Adrian, India - January 2013
Just few words, we did not stay long enough. It's a really good experience.
Ashok, Jungian Psychoanalyst - January 2013

We hope to return many more times- God willingly, for the Nature, the personal touch, Yoga, wonderful media Room, living in Nature and most importantly the Staff. Thank you. Best wishes.
Tara, London - December 2012
I had a wonderful time, thank you so much, everything was just fantastic. Amazing and can't wait to come back. I would highly recommend the Joy of Giving!
Susan, USA - January 2013
After 11 amazing days, it's hard to imagine going back! It's hard to believe that Shreyas and Brooklyn are on the same planet! This holiday was everything I could hope for- beautiful settings, world-class Yoga, thoughtful service, scrumptious food, well-guided meditation. Truly life changing. I'm going to take home a little piece of each amazing staff member in my heart. Special thanks to Dr. Prarthana, Dr. Jaya, Bala, Santosh, Manikanth, Ramesh, Dayanand, Vidhya and Kavitha for anticipating my every need/desire. And the incredible talent, Ramakant, who helped me, take my asana practice to a whole other level, with a strong arm and a gentle smile. I'm already planning my return journey! Love.
Atish, Hemanti and Rushay, South Africa - December 2012
We had an absolutely fantastic Yoga experience and introduction to Yoga and taking it forward with us in our everyday lives. We especially like to thank Dayanand and Co for their enthusiasm and smiles as well as high levels of service. We also enjoyed the Yoga classes by Prarthana. The Ayurvedic assessments were somewhat disappointing. It wouldve been better if the personal assessments were done earlier to further understand our own personal understanding of Ayurveda and its benefits in daily life. Thank you all.
Caroline, UK - October 2012
I return home walking taller and with a clearer and calm mind. Thank you to everybody at Shreyas - you all do something very special.

Until next time.

Dear Shreyas Staff, Thank you for such a fabulous two weeks. As someone who had zero interest in Yoga prior to this trip, I'm amazed at how much I've come to enjoy the (6:30 am!!) classes and hopefully I'll be able to find somewhere in Australia that measures up. Leaving behind the food is going to be incredibly hard, so a special thank you to the chef cooks wait staff for making meals so enjoyable. My only wish is that the daily meditation classes philosophical sessions could be longer! They're incredibly interesting. Thank you so much!
Emma, UK - December 2012
My third visit to Shreyas and it is wonderful to repeat that it is as magical as always! The experience is exceptional- nothing is too much trouble, and it genuinely feels that all the staff care and is motivated to take care of guests, this is very much appreciated. I badly needed to relax and escape the chaos of my life and have truly achieved this through the excellent food (incredible standard and variety), the Yoga practice, meditation and wellness experience, like massage and dosha readings. I have learned a lot about both myself and the fascinating traditions of this beautiful country! Thank you especially to Ramakant, Rita, Bala and Shobha
Shivani and Naveen, USA - October 2012

Samanda, Australia - December 2012
Dear Shreyas Staff, Thank you so much for a wonderful relaxed start to my holiday. I have learned how to breathe- thank you Ramakant and Prarthana. The massages were sensational- like everything at Shreyas there is exquisite attention to detail which is so relaxing I ended up booking 2 extra! Loved the outdoor table settings and the ceremony of presenting food. Everyone is helpful, kind. Genuinely a blissful experience. I will be back. Thanks for an insightful journey.

Relais and Chateaux have never disappointed me with their resort and hotel collections. Shreyas is no exception, they have the best vegetarian meals, ambience is relaxing and invigorating, daily agenda is paced designed well that no pressure is felt to attend activities. I would definitely consider returning to Shreyas. Thanks to all staff (service and ground), excellent service standards.

Thank you very much for a relaxing fantastic experience. It will make me smile to remember the monkey pinching my water bottle at the temple, the sari dressing and the rangoli drawings. I will keep trying to get nearer my toes!

Joanne, Australia -January 2013
Thank you for an amazing 5 days at Shreyas. We arrived at 2:00 am after a long journey to a gracious welcome and the service and enjoyment continued for 5 days. The Yoga teachers were all inspiring and met the needs of the differing levels of experience of the people in our group. Each night we looked forward to the dinner- wondering what lights and flowers and decorations would adorn the area, not to mention looking forward to the food as well! All meals were delicious and even the non vegetarians seemed happy. We had a relaxing escape and would love to return one day. Namaste

Our 2 nights stay was much too short and we would have loved to spend 2 weeks in this relaxing place. Thanks to all the Staff of Shreyas for their excellent service which made our stay unforgettable. We hope to come back to experience more about healthy food, Yoga and meditation!
Kate, UK - December 2012

Our third visit to Shreyas- and we love it here. We are so well looked after and it has such a relaxed and calm atmosphere. The Yoga teaching is exceptional, wonderful massages, delicious food and the staff all so helpful and kind. Visiting the orphanage was a great experience and I was really impressed by all that has been done there- and is being done now- by Shreyas. It has been a truly special and memorable week, and I have learnt so much from all the teaching and Yoga practice.
Harini, Amsterdam - January 2013
Shreyas has been an incredible experience. The attention to detail and the high skill levels of the staff here really distinguishes it above all other places.

Thank you so much to Prarthana for our special pre-natal Yoga classes! She is a brilliant teacher. The entire experience was so relaxing and it will be hard to leave. Thanks to the amazing spa staff- I had the most wonderful facial and relaxing massages. The upmost care was taken by everyone to assure the comfort of my sister and I during our pregnancy, and that is greatly appreciated.

We know we will be back soon and look forward to see our friends at Shreyas again. Namaste, With love
Esha, India- January 2013
This was my first trip to Shreyas, and the experience was wonderful. This was the first time I took such a trip, and I was quite apprehensive when I reached Bangalore, but I felt at home as soon as the car entered Shreyas. I received a wonderful welcome from the staff, and had a great lunch with the group already here. I settled in very soon and enjoyed all the activities during the day. Waking up at 6:00 am for the morning Yoga sessions became a habit, and far easier than I imagined it would be. I signed up for a three day package because I was unsure of what to expect here, but now that it's time to leave, I wish I had signed up for a longer one. The food was excellent, Yoga relaxing, and I never thought I could sit still for my hour long Pranayama and Meditation. I spent my free time sitting in the patio outside my room drinking tea, reading, and eating fruit, and I loved it. Thank you to the entire staff for making this a truly memorable trip. I will definitely come back. Thank you
Priya - September 2012
This has been a very good experience- beautiful, well-maintained property, extremely courteous staff, and good food. Serene, calm and great experience. THANK YOU!
Kym, Australia - October 2012

Sue, Australia, - December 2012
Thank you to everyone! I had a great time and appreciated the efforts of everyone. Nothing was too much trouble and people went out of their way to be helpful. The biggest bonus is that my back is no longer sore. Ill think of you all while doing my daily practice! Hope to see you all again.
Nancy and Ross, Canada - January 2013
Being here is a special experience. Thank you for everything youve given us- a beautiful environment (the grounds and farm), caring staff and memorable Yoga.
Hitesh, India - 22nd November 2012
I had a great time and I am sure my wife and my daughters did too. Truth saying I never stayed for 14 days in one place but I guess my family liked it so much that they didn't want to go in one week. I know that we were the first ones to come with a family of four and my smaller kid was very harassing and too noisy, but the staff here did not make a fuss about it and handles her very patiently. I conclude by saying that I had an excellent time here.
Laura, UK - February 2013
Thank You, A beautiful and special place with kindness.
Susan and MeganUSA - January 2013
There are times when flow happens and everyone involved knows it. We experienced this at Shreyas where the surroundings are lovely, the practices of Yoga instructive, and the services meaningful and targeted, and the food divine! Thank you for your amazing attention to detail. It has been a truly memorable stay for this mother daughter combination.
Hillary, USA - November 2012
Dear Shreyas, What an amazing gem! I fell in love with this place from the first day. It was spiritual and healthy and warm and friendly. I always felt very well taken care of and will leave feeling truly refreshed, and reenergized. I believe I learned lessons here that will make me more aware, stronger and happier when I return to NYC. I very much enjoyed the meditation practices, daily Yoga and the spa. Every day I looked forward to dinner- the kitchen staff was remarkable and made every meal memorable. Lastly, I will treasure all the philosophical conversations I had- truly one of the highlights. Thank you for everything and I can't wait to come back.
Sema and Aparajita, India - November 2012
It is always sad to leave this place. Time passes really quickly and it is never enough! It is the perfect home, refuge, and sanctuary. I don't know of a better place where I feel all my senses awaken as I get back in touch with nature and myself. Thank you for making this place so unique; look forward to coming back!
Emma, UK - September 2012
Lovely stay at Shreyas. Very serene; all staff lovely. Particularly enjoyed Rita's Yoga and Prarthana's Yoga and breathing. You feel extremely cared for in a lovely, quiet, non-intrusive way. Thank you
Kevin, USA - January 2013
My second amazing visit to Shreyas. What can I say From the moment I arrived I felt like I had returned home. All the familiar faces and the wonderful care. This year I got extra special care as I was ill for several days and felt like my family was caring for me. Wonderful all around!
Rayhana, Bahrain - October 2012
My second visit and impeccable. The fun and laughter with staff and guests alike had just put the icing on the cake and that extra needed touch to my wellbeing. Everyone has been fantastic but I cannot leave without saying a few specific thank yous. Dr. Jaya thank you, thank you for your knowledge, time and caring touch. Vidhya and Shobha for their magical touch (I think next time I may bring a large suitcase and take you with me)! Aah the Yoga team: Prarthana for her seamless instructions making you aware of where you need to be at every point and breath; Mani soothing voice and smile and of course Ramakant, what can be said, you have in very short space of time taught the practical importance of Prana in practice, to take your control over the body, thank you. All of the house keeping staff. The dining room, the heart of Shreyas lovingly as usual served by smiles and great food, thanks especially to Chef Rajan, Dayanand and Arun. Last and not the least, Balaji for arranging my package and making dining possible in the tent the last night. Thank you all. Ill be back

We want to say a big THANK YOU once again to the whole Shreyas family. We feel really blessed to have found you. We could go on for a very long time, describing the beautiful setting, the immaculate attention to detail, the lovely food and all the wonderful things on offer However, what make Shreyas really special are the people here. Each and every person here has gone out of their way to create an unforgettable experience. You have not only touched our hearts and connected with our souls, but we have learnt so much from you. You have taught us about: - unconditional love, patience, humility, humor, honesty, wisdom, giving, caring, sharing, respect, service with a smile We are sad to be leaving you, but we are taking happy memories away with us. We will be back as soon as we can and until then we wish you all the very best. May God bless you all. With love

Thanks to all of you for giving us both this wonderful break. We leave tonight full of new experiences and energies!
Jane and Joe Goldblum, USA - October 2012
To all at Shreyas,This has been an idyllic stay good for our body and good for our soul. I personally think every traveler should end his/her stay here reflecting the beauty, the peace that (also) is India, which is truly the best of India. We appreciated every detail- the flowers on our dining table, the treatments, the Yoga, even (for first-timers) the chanting. I hope we can take the calm, the spirituality home with us.Gratefully
Ann, England - December 2012
When I booked this mother and daughters holiday I could not have imagined that by the time December rolled around, both daughters would be pregnant. The Staff at Shreyas went beyond the call of duty with specially designed Yoga classes, massages and wonderful food. What a holiday! I will never forget this happy, healthy break with my two beautiful girls- all made possible by everyone at Shreyas. Thank you.
Nikki, UK - September 2012
To the entire Shreyas family- Thank You. Every one of you has touched my heart and made me feel so welcome. It is you that have made my time here perfection. I came here hoping to learn a little Yoga, shed a little weight. I leave here not just lighter in body, but much more importantly- lighter in my soul, my heart and my mind. Namaste
Kirsten, UK - November 2012
To my new friends at Shreyas, HAMSAH SOHUM SOHUM HAMSAHA I have a very strong feeling that I am going to carry this chant around with me for the rest of my life. The Shreyas retreat was everything you promised it to be- fantastic location, settings and ambience. The rooms are unique in their own right and the acres of land are so well looked after and give Shreyas a real sense of wellbeing. The farming and community service reminds us to be a humble, simple and gratefull, and the Yoga and meditation has taught me so much, which I hope will stay with me and help me for many years to come. As I embrace the next stage of my life, I am so glad that Shreyas has helped me to start the journey and provide me with some great principles, and practices from which to grow and learn. Above all, the most commendable are the staff- whilst always remaining professional, it was great to meet all of them and it was so refreshing to see they all have personalities and a sense of humor- totally spoilt for service and I hope, a long term friendship. I look forward to coming again soon (hopefully as the headstand master) but until then, may I wish you all great happiness and success, both personally and professionally. HAPPY DEEPAVALI!
Gita and Pankaj, England - December 2012

The Kothari's and the Gami's, England - December 2012
Thank you to each and every member of Shreyas family. We all had a great time and we are enchanted and seduced by the tranquil grounds. It facilitated a healing environment, both for the physical body and the soul! Well be back!
Marie Franocise, France - November 2012
Well, what can I say that I have not expressed during my other 6 visits Shreyas is and always will be such a special place for me. Full of good and constructive experiences that I shall try, once more, to bring back with me.
Thank you to all for being who you are.
Mikaela, Australia - October 2012
What a wonderful experience! Everyone was so lovely and caring, all the little things really made a difference. From the lemon tea at 6 am brought to my room, to the concern everyone had for my stomach ache, and impeccable housekeeping done so discreetly (not once did I see them!); I am already planning my return trip. Thank you to all, Namaste.
Elizabeth, Hong Kong - September 2012
Shreyas really was a journey of self- discovery. Everything I had read about Shreyas was even better than I expected. The experience was wonderful and I hope to return in the future.
