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.

    Dear Shreyas family, thank you so much for a truly wonderful experience. I came here hoping to relax and detox and couldn’t have asked for more. Your staff are always accommodating and their attention to personal detail was really impressive. They always went the extra mile! I will definitely come and visit you again soon and hopefully drag my husband along too! Best wishes. From Shreyas Review Page:

    "Absolute bliss!!!"
    "I booked a yoga retreat at Shreyas to further my yoga practice and to take some time out of my busy life. It was just what I needed. Whilst there was more scheduled to do than I anticipated when booking, every session was fantastic and inspiring. The yoga, meditation, pranayama and yogis were brilliant. I highly recommend Shreyas. The retreat staff were very attentive and were able to anticipate needs without hovering. The food was lovely and the chef was easily able to accommodate dietary requirements." From Tripadvisor

    "A small Paradise"
    "A beautifully laid out retreat on 25 acres , well landscaped and offerings of food and all its yogic activities help the mind slow down and relax. It certainly has some service and process issues that management must look into as for the price point of this property is very high and they cannot afford to have such lapses as air conditioning failures in the same room 4 times in a span of two days, showers not working, serving cold soup, or serving food that one is allergic to despite having had you fill up a written form at check in and also meet an Ayurvedic doctor. The spa is above average and the therapists are very good. Here again however there is a lack of attention to detail. However I would definitively recommend it and will go back myself" From Tripadvisor

    "Shreyas Yoga Retreat"
    "I have been to Shreyas twice now. I enjoyed it both times. The food is vegetarian there is no alcohol served. Its definitely US pricing for the stay though they do throw in the 2 yoga classes as well as one meditation class a day. My first visit was in the winter & the resort was completely sold out. I had a great time since I met a 7 other women from other parts of the world. I enjoyed the food which was delicious inventive everyday. My second visit was in July with a friend from London. We enjoyed the experience tremendously but found the cuisine not as creative as I had found last time. There were only two other sets of guests & they seemed to be on lots of dietary restrictions.....& perhaps that was the reason for our kind of boring meals." From Tripadvisor

  • "Relaxing yoga retreat"
    "I spent a long weekend at Shreyas in November and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff were excellent, incredibly attentive and specialists in what they do. I had a nicely packed schedule with a mixture of yoga, breathing and meditation lessons as well Ayurvedic treatments. The treatments were wonderful, no packaged branded lotions and potions but instead all natural remedies made from the produce grown in their grounds. They served us a variety of vegetarian food three times a day and whilst it was healthy it was really delicious. The weekend was also made by the wonderful ladies I met whilst i was there, from all corners of the globe, who I had the pleasure of sharing my meals with. On the negative side, and the reason for 4 stars, I went when the weather was cold and rainy. The pool was not heated enough to be used, the hot tub was not hot, the sauna was only switched on when you asked for it and it was therefore never warm and the gym is really just an old running machine and nothing else. For a place of this standard and cost the facilities should be better. They were also doing building work that was noisy during the day." From Tripadvisor
