We spent 5 days at Sanskriti and really enjoyed the massages,professionalism and attentiveness of the staff. We got the package which included 2 massages per day, 1 yoga class and ayurvedic consultations, food, and lodging. We got very good value for money. The food was good, very well presented and of course, very healthy. Each staff was so nice, considerate and attentive. The place is perfect if it was not for the narrow street running in front of it with motorcycle drivers using their horns non-stop all day. Although we loved the massages and all the attentions, we were not able to relax. We had to stay in our room (with windows, balcony door shut and the AC still not installed) as the beautiful terrace (which has a great view of the Ganga) was just to noisy. Management has told us that they will soon install a terrace in the garden at the back of the building. This will be an improvement, for sure. I don't understand why the owners chose this location... really!
Another disappointment was that we only got 3 days of yoga and not 5 as promised. A teacher came for the first 3 days, then had to go out of town but was not replaced. No compensation was offered. Also, on our last day, we were told that the treatment and lunch was not included! This really surprised us since we had paid for 5 full days and not 4 and a half. This was not the initial agreement. We had to argue the point before we finally got what we paid for. This was a sour ending.
Overall we were very satisfied with the quality for value but unfortunately wouldn't go back just because of the location.
Thank you staff of the Sanskriti for you kindness and professionalism.
