This was one of the greatest vacations I had in my life!
The center is great, in the middle of nature, treatments are excellent and people working there are wonderful.
All very kind, willing to support you in every moment at the reception, at the treatment center and at the restaurant.
When you arrive there you have the first day checkup with a doctor who follows you for all your stay there and prescribes the treatments that suit you best.
I was lucky to have dr Mahesh who is a very skilled doctor. He explained to me the Ayurveda basic principles which was something unknown to me and he had also the patience to clarify any doubts on the treatments always smiling.
The girl who did all the treatments to me was Nich, I don't know how it is written but means " night". She was really lovable and took care about me so gently and supportively.
I wish I would go back there soon!
Something to improve:
Fruit 2 times per day. I love fruit!
Very nice island and center! A beautiful and green territory, special food was tasty. I took the bike into the hotel and went to the old city and rode around the island. The therapies was fantastic and relaxing. I had a small problem with my nose and after therapy i am breathing easy! But i have two comments: Wifi should be faster and fruits two times per day! Highly recommend this center for therapies and quiet relax.
