I'm not one for many words or writing reviews but I had to make a point say how wonderful my experience was at Xinalani Retreat. Everything from the staff, to the room, to the food, to the yoga was absolutely fantastic. I have been wanting to do a solo yoga retreat for a while and when I saw this deal...

A friend and I visited Xinalani in April and had a wonderful time. This is a long review (sorry!), but so many people have asked me most of these questions that I figured I would just lay it out for everyone on this site, too. Location & Design I like that it is nearby to a major airport, but totally...

We had not been on a yoga retreat before and this is an amazing spot. So most of the reviews cover the basics, amazing views, terrific food, and yes, a lot of steps to get anywhere. A couple things, the town next door that they reference with the Coco's restaurant, yes, it is a town, but there is nothing there,...

I can't say enough about what a magical place this is. I traveled with my yoga school and stayed in Deluxe Room 22. Even though the room shared walls with neighbors, and was open sided to the bay, I never heard them, it felt very private. The bathroom was very roomy, with plenty of cubbies and hangers, hooks, and places...

I bought the single yogini package after deciding I needed some time to relax. Every single detail of my stay was smooth. From being picked up to be being dropped off I enjoyed every single moment. The resident yoga teachers are all excellent teachers. Each class was planned with such care and creativity. The food served was creative and delicious....

I have been wanting to go to Xinalani for years, and I saw a promotion and spontaneously purchased one week there (and I was able to extend for a couple of days).

This is my third stay at Xinalani Retreat for a New Years yoga retreat. It's very much an adventure from the minute you step off the plane. One needs to take a lovely 40 minute ferry ride to arrive at the property. Depending on the sea, this could be a tranquil or arduous experience. You jump out of the boat...

I went to Xinalani for a yoga retreat and would return without a moment's hesitation. I had one of the tree top rooms that had two walls completely open to the ocean and night air. The experience of falling asleep and waking up to ocean waves was lovely ... like out of a dream. The chef and food are world...

I've never stayed at a yoga retreat place before Xinalani....and now I think the bar has been set impossibly high for anyplace else. My friend and I stayed in one of the deluxe rooms with two double beds - it was very comfortable with incredible views, comfortable beds and a very well-thought-out design.
