I stayed at Anahata for nearly 3 month as a karma yogi... As a newy to yoga I'm so glad that I chose this place as my yoga starting point, as it teaches you, in my opinion, still the real and traditional yoga. Your days start early and are fully planned and even sometimes you have to do things you don't really like, at the end you see that it is all part of the bigger picture and part of your personal growth. Anahata is located on top of a hill with stunning views over Golden Bay, a very beautiful location not just to watch the sunrise or sunset but also to take some walks. Accommodation is basic but has all you need and three delicious vegetarian meals are served a day. I loved my time up there and experienced the most magical and unforgettable NYE of my life. Thanks everyone for making my stay so wonderful. Om Om Om!

Anahata Retreat and the beautiful wise souls that welcome you there are hard to describe adequately. If you are even slightly thinking you might need some 'me time' or want to know more about what yoga really is, then book your stay. You could not possibly regret time spent here. X

I always wanted a place near to a beach that had serenity, calmness,clean and a resort next to a beach that is awesome. I found Anahata retreat. This place has a great staff to take care of guests, huts that u will love. The only thing i missed is Indian food. Since i dont eat european food, i rarely found Indian food. Rest, don't dare to skip this place.
