“I honestly can’t say enough good things about this space, the land, the facilities, the staff, the stewards, their events. I will never forget this place and hope to come back. Forever grateful for such beautiful blessings!”
“Having never gone to a spa or retreat, I heard this is the place to go. The mountains, the hiking trails, the wildlife, and the vastness of the place set up the parameters for a happy and interesting week. Every staff person I encountered could not have been more welcoming. One new employee said all the supervisors treat each other and other employees as well as they treat their guests. Vegetarian food is fresh and excellent. Wait ’till you see the modern yet traditional spa! The main house and guest rooms are lovely. I came to learn yoga from outstanding teachers and to relax and get some care taking. Mission accomplished.”
“Nicole’s KuNye massage was transformational. She released several tight muscle and joint areas with targeted and deep pressure and massage. I felt more flexible and incredibly relaxed. The Dewa Spa facility itself is beautiful, peaceful and extremely relaxing.”
