Guest Reviews of Shreyas
I had the most wonderful time in Shreyas! I was very well looked after and I can’t wait to go again next year. I highly recommend the resort and Health and Fitness Travel. The booking was very easy and all was organised for me!

I stayed at Shreyas for 5 nights and was absolutely overwhelmed by the attention to detail, the warmness of the staff, the beautiful rooms, the delicious and flavoursome food, the list really is endless...
I did the yoga retreat and it was truly a life changing experience. The teachers are very knowledgeable and get to know your strengths and weaknesses almost immediately; no yoga class is the same.
The individual yoga sessions were focused on my needs and pushed and challenged me, I have never attempted 3 yoga classes a day, but at Shreyas it felt like the most natural thing.
A special mention to Rita who has to be one of the most inspiring teachers I have ever met, thanks to her, for the first time ever, I have been motivated to do my own daily practice since my return
Another mention to Dr Rachna who was kind, generous with her knowledge and a positive energy to be around.
The meditation experience was like no other, Balaji is very gifted and his 1:1 session was the most surreal experience, I have been listening to the beautiful chakra meditation CD since my return.
In summary I felt like I wasn’t meant to be anywhere else at that point in time but at Shreyas. A calm, content and moving experience and I hope to return next year.

This is exactly the holiday I have been looking for for many years. Relaxing, rejuvenating, best staff ever, I felt they are my own friends of family. Beautiful landscape, super tent cottages, delicious food and services. Though very calm and serene there are a lot to do. Twice yoga classes a day, great and diverse massages, strolling in the beautiful landscape. The sunrise with an orchestra of birds are absolutely wonderful experience. .... I spent one week but i will stay more next time..as I AM DEFINITELY GOING BACK SOON.
