I came up here with a girlfriend in the hope of finding some solace from a very hectic year. (August 2013) Prema Shanti Yoga Retreat offered us a beautiful place to recharge ourselves, my mind some peace and quiet, absolutely beautiful surrounds and a great base to explore what the Daintree has to offer. Upon arrival we were greeted by Janardhan who offered a tour of the retreat and our room, then gave us some time to settle in. Whilst the rooms and bathroom are simple the retreat is designed to get back to nature. The retreat is surrounded by lush rainforest and the sounds of wildlife. Thats the beauty of it.
Meals were vegetarian, relaxing and an opportunity to mix with other guests. I often sat and took in my environment and managed a lot of time for reflection. We appreciated the time in the afternoons to walk through the rainforest, walk on the beach, swim in the swimming holes and eat at some of the beachside restaurants. Any activities at the Daintree Mara and Janardham are only too happy to help you organise. We found them delightful hosts so much so when we went to Port Douglas we went to their yoga they run on the beach to say hello.
I had been looking to find somewhere that offered Yoga and Meditation and the morning Meditation and evening Yoga really suited me. With only 4 weeks annual leave a year I wanted to incorporate this into a holiday and this was perfect for that. Its not too intense so beginners would get a lot out of this or people who are looking to do some meditation and yoga but who also want to have some time to themselves. I learnt a few new techniques in the Meditation which was great to learn and now do at home.
Overall a lovely part of our holiday which I will always remember and be grateful for
Thank you Mara and Janardhan
