“Menla is one of my favorite retreat centers in the world. The natural beauty, the wonderful staff and great accommodations always make the experience of leading a retreat effortless and graceful. The blessings of HH Dalai Lama and many other Great Beings who have been there usher us into our own True Nature with joy and ease.”
“Usually you expect basic accommodations for a Retreat Center, but the deluxe room I stayed in was amazing. All the nature around is very special, and don´t forget to book a massage at the wonderful Spa!”
“I love Menla! The views are gorgeous, the organic vegetarian food delectable, the staff professional and friendly and the program’s top flight!!”
