About the place

Shreyas Retreat is situated on the outskirts of Bangalore near Nelamangala. There are many historical and spiritual sites in the surrounding areas. The stress of urban living lives its imprint on each of us, the chaotic noise makes it difficult for us to hear our inner voice; at Shreyas we give you an oasis of calm making it easier to relax and connect with your true self. From the moment you drive through our gates you are surrounded by nature and will begin to feel its restorative effects. Shreyas is a seamless blend of the modern and the timeless, luxury and simplicity, indulgence and enlightenment. The private, serene and “simply” luxurious accommodation has been structured to make the guest feel like they are living in the middle of nature. The architecture and interiors are a confluence of traditional and the modern – tiled roofs, antique doorways and stone pillars give way to contemporary interiors and state of the art facilities.

Food

The meals during Silent retreat are also specially customized and prepared with ingredients that are known to calm the mind and are easy to digest. The ingredients for the meals are freshly hand-picked from our organic vegetable and herb gardens, and all preparations are light and nutritious. According to Ayurveda, self-imposed mouna (silent) during eating greatly aids digestion and improves overall health.

    My wife and I spent 7 nights doing a silent retreat at Shreya in early May. We had an amazing time and would love to return one day. The accommodation was very comfortable. We loved doing yoga and meditation in the morning. The food was outstanding . Overall I'd highly recommend it. From Trip Advisor

    "Wonderful retreat for wellness, meals and peace"
    Shreyas exceeded expectations in every way. It magically combined the quality of a high end resort with the integrity of a wellness destination. The attention to detail and design was sublime and the yoga was inspirational. That is quite a feat. For me, each day after morning yoga and meditation, my hours became a choice between a discreet poolside relax, a solitary day of book reading on my bungalow porch or a relaxing walk around the lovely grounds. And... there was always the option of a spa treatment. Those I booked were wonderful. Also, the grounds were so interesting with walking paths and a thriving organic garden whose bounty featured in the ingredients of each meal. This range is what made Shreyas such a special place. I could choose to engage or enjoy quiet - each day - as I gradually unravelled from City Life and The City Ratrace. I did meet some lovely people over the meals and each one raved about their personal connection with the place. Daily, personal yoga lessons, intense detox, or Ayurvedic treatments comprised other guests' itineraries. I was happy to just decompress and enjoy the group yoga and meditation sessions. The meals were wonderful. I recommend being very clear about your meal preferences during check in. They seem to be able to accommodate a wide range of requirements. I chose a bungalow which was perfect for me. You can choose how close or far you'd like to be from the main walkway and pool. I chose very close to the pool so I could maintain a strong wifi connection. Whatever you choose, each bungalow offers complete privacy because they are staggered along a path meaning no one is too close to another. All in all, I plan to return to Shreyas and have recommended it to many friends. It's a very special place. From Tripadvisor

  • "An amazing experience of hospitality"
    Our first visit to Shreyas and hopefully not the last. The team at Shreyas live up to their motto “Atithi Devo Bhava”- guest is your God. This property is the place to step out of the rat race, pause and reflect. The entire team at Shreyas is worthy of praise and the spa is heaven! We experienced many small examples of hospitality that turns this Retreat into a special place. The yoga and sound meditation times are special and tailored to our ability. Great food and good sized swimming pool to top it all From Tripadvisor

    "An amazing retreat and more"
    This retreat exceeded all my expectations. Set in the stunning surroundings of an old coconut farm this boutique retreat is dotted with beautiful comfortable garden tent accommodation each with its own veranda terrace and open bathroom leading out into your own little courtyard. I enjoyed a week of excellent yoga classes and learnt to relax using a variety of meditation styles and pranayamas. There are group sessions as well as one to one tuition which is tailored expertly for you. The whole experience together ensured I have returned home rejuvenated and relaxed. The kindness and care of all the staff is, in my opinion, unmatched and all very personalised. The new spa is a blissful haven of tranquility with expert therapists. I enjoyed wonderful massages and body scrubs. Particularly good was the Balinese massage and the Ayurvedic synchronised Abhyana massage. And the Hibiscus body scrub with all natural products left me feeling soft skinned and smelling beautifully! The food is deliciously healthy and lovingly prepared using gorgeous fresh, organic ingredients all grown on the land there. All dietary needs are catered for without fuss and special diets can be created to suit everyone. I can't recommend this retreat highly enough. I loved everything about it and will definitely be returning! From Tripadvisor

    "another wonderful stay in Shreays"
    This is a wonderful luxurious yoga and Ayurveda retreat. You will find wonderful people, an excellent yoga and Ayurveda Treatment in a Tropical garden with good swimming facilities. The vegetarian food is just great and tasty I want to thank all the people who keep this place in the way they do. There are different yoga classes every morning and in the afternoon with wonderful teachers, regular Meditation hours with philosophical talks every morning and really a wonderful sorrounding to relax and enjoy. The doctor of the ayuverdiv health treatment is a real expert looking after his patients all day long: I have come back to Shreyas many times and it has not changed. My last visit was in September 2017 and I am very happy to come back in December , in some weeks. Thank you all for your great hospitality and friendliness . From Tripadvisor
