shreyas

7 nights from £1,750 shreyas karnataka

Shreyas provides a blissful combination of authentic yoga with modern luxury. It’s a beautiful, calming oasis – lush gardens set around a vast serene pool with a stunning open yoga shala.

Step inside and immediately you notice the peaceful environment created by the genuinely kind, smiling and humble staff who provide such attentive yet unobtrusive service.

The estate offers eight tented suites spread throughout the expansive gardens – luxury mini bungalows, each with their own front terrace, garden, large bedroom space and tropical-feel wet room bathroom.  The three pool suites are closer to the restaurant and a step away from the pool and its high comfort sunbeds.

Yoga is expertly taught with grace and spirituality (if wanted) – and you can enjoy one on ones, group classes, and early birds can join the staff for their morning meditations. The small spa offers delicious ayurvedic treatments which heighten your blissed out state.

Food at Shreyas is delicious and vegetarian, lovingly prepared by Chef Rami. His authentic light local dishes are to die for. We actually think western food is out of place here – but he’s keen to show his flair for other cuisines as well, and so you can choose western cuisine if you’d prefer. Don’t expect any flexibility on the no meat or no alcohol policy though as they are strictly off limits… but do take time to enjoy a cooking class with Rami, who’ll generously share tips and recipes you can recreate at home.

Highs

  • The serenity of the place combined with the warmth of the staff
  • Opportunity for a full immersion into yoga with excellent local teaching
  • Jugs of chilled coconut water served to you on your cushioned bed by the pool
  • Fabulous new spa

Lows

  • If you’re a gym bunny, you’ll find the gym somewhat minimal, but then Shreyas isn’t about sweaty cardio workouts
  • The garden perimeter is close to a railway line, so insomniacs should go for a pool suite or request one of the inner garden suites

Healthy Traveller Tip

Immerse yourself fully in the spirit of Shreyas by helping farm in the organic garden, join the chefs cooking and then join the Shreyas team serving food to the local village children.

  • Also in Kanartaka, southern India, on the famous Om beach there's Swa Swara
  • In Kerala, a little further south on the south western tip of India, we would recommend Kali Kovilakom - minimum stay two weeks for the ultimate in mind / body rejuvenation.
