A hidden 'Utopia' in a small town in Iowa. I have visited many of the best spas but this is the best. In December, I was at Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter. They have a very nice spa there. In November, The Bachelor Gulch spa near Vail, Co was also excellent. The Raj is different and I felt, a...

Wonderful spa and place to re-center. Very relaxing and welcoming. Food was very good and healthy. My daughter has life threatening food allergies and they were great about accommodating (lunch and dinner).

I've heard it said, "Never underestimate Maharishi's programs." My recent visit with the Ayurvedic expert reminded me and confirmed what I've experienced in the past ... a sense of wholeness and confidence is strongly felt. Afterwards, as I am incorporating the recommendations into my life, something very beautiful is happening ... my body and my whole self is loving it.

The training of the staff, especially the technicians (masseurs and masseuses) is beyond anything you'll find anywhere else in the continental U.S. The Raj rooms are quiet and serene, the food is prepared by an amazing chef, is 100% organic and much of it grown right in Fairfield. I don't suggest The Raj if you're looking for a busy, touristy...

From the moment one crosses the threshold of the Raj the journey into healing begins. Friendly, knowledgeable staff help to create the calm, peaceful and nurturing environment of the hotel as well as the treatment area. Stress melts away and one is healthfully nourished, body and soul. You owe it to yourself to experience the Raj!

The Raj has the best Ayurvedic treatments in United States. This is not a luxury spa but a treatment spa. The technicians are well trained. The treatments offered are the most comprehensive. Dr. Mark is the best.

The Raj is unique in that one can get heavenly pampering and rejuvenation unlike anywhere else in the country. The staff are friendly and helpful and the Ayur Vedic treatments fill one with a sense of health and wellness. Afterwards, I had great clarity of perception, greater energy, and a calming of the mind. I recommend it highly!
