“This was hands down the best spiritual retreat experience I’ve had since I left my teacher’s ashram. Omega, Kripalu, Esalen don’t compare to the lovely energy happening at Menla. The small, intimate facilities allow them to make delicious food, very sattvic & each meal feels restoring to vitality. The staff is very kind and helpful. Everyone we met seemed to have a fullness of heart and a strong dedication to be of service to the place & the guests. The environs are gorgeous! The hiking trails are well marked. I could spend 100 days here & never wish for the outside world. I cannot recommend this place more.”
“A getaway you will treasure! Fresh air, silence, mountains, streams, mossy stones, pond, and trails. A break from the outside world. The staff is extra friendly, personable, and helpful. The food is grown on-site, fresh, and amazing. The accommodations are nice, clean, with diverse options. The perfect retreat location–go to Menla whenever you get the chance!”
“To stay in the same place as His Holiness is a blessing and privilege. It is as if I could feel his love and tranquility vibrating all throughout.”
