The property is completely serene and the staff is utterly fantastic. Everything was in place to make my stay as relaxing and care-free as possible, with the staff highly attentive yet not overbearing and my time equally divided between interesting and challenging activities and rest and relaxation.
As an example of how well-cared for the guests are, I casually mentioned that I had a minor sunburn to one of the staff members one afternoon and only a short time after another staff member came to me with fresh aloe from their beautiful gardens! True service.
I would highly recommend Shreyas to any and everyone interested in a rejuvenating and reflective getaway from the everyday stresses of life or those simply interested in spending time in a beautiful place with interesting guests and an endless supply of activities that are good for the body and soul.
As someone who is not new to yoga, I found the multiple sessions each day to be challenging yet incredibly rewarding, with the rare opportunity to practice in a very small group with highly skilled instructors.
The massages were heaven. My only caveat would be to make sure to let the staff know if you have sensitive skin. I failed to do this and had a minor skin irritation on my face for several days following a facial, which I don't fault the staff for at all. They were very professional and excellent at all of the spa services!
Overall, staying at Shreyas is a 5-star experience and anyone who goes is pretty much guaranteed to cherish their time there. Another guest who I met during my stay had been there 5 times, which is a sure sign of the quality of the place. I can't wait to go back myself!
