Many years ago the piece of land where the guesthouse is located “found” us. We couldn’t help falling in love with the beautiful surroundings, the views of the snowy peak of Mount Humantay, the fabulous old Pisonay tree at the bottom of the garden, the patches of dry forest with endemic bird species… We designed and constructed our home and soon we had the vision of a bigger project where we would share the beauty of this peaceful spot by welcoming guests here. We built bungalows for our visitors and a Yoga and meditation hall (we trained as Sivananda Yoga teachers) and began cultivating the land using only organic manure. We love spoiling our guests with wonderful vegetarian home grown food and give them the maximum opportunity to relax and reconnect with Nature.
Whether you are looking for a relaxing weekend getaway, a bird watching experience, a Yoga holiday or nature hikes, we are delighted to have you staying with us. Our service is highly exclusive and personalized with much attention to detail, we would like to make sure that your stay with us will be a happy and memorable one.
Looking forward to meeting you!
