Loved, loved the place. Came here for a retreat led by Iyan, and it was lovely. The food was amazing and so beautifully presented. The spa treatments luxurious - rose petal bath, anyone? The activities were just the best, including the bike ride and the rice field walk, and as others have noted, Iyan made the yoga level appropriate, so you will not get bored even if you are an experienced practitioner. The place used to be a palace, so it is mystical and gorgeous. I did not warm up to Claude, but he has to be given credit for being s shrewd businessman (though in my opinion his appearances sort of destroyed the sweet, unearthly aura of the retreat).
