My family and I just finished a wonderful week at Xinalani for a yoga retreat. We were there with a group of 16. The bonds we made will last a lifetime. Yes there are many stairs to climb, but that is part of the experience. The massage I received at the resort was out of this world. The staff is...

Xinalani is a gift for the soul. I booked a yoga retreat with a group that was scheduled. I did not know them or the teacher, but I sure lucked out! There were a number of couples in our group, but I came with a friend. The group becomes your family for the week, but there is plenty of time...

Stay at Xinalani was spectacular. I really have to give many thanks to surfing instructor/hiking guide Pedro. His English is perfect and his surfing instruction was absolutely great. When learning surfing or going on a hiking excursion at Xinalani, ask for Pedro!

I travelled a lot in my life, but this was undoubtedly a stellar experience in so many ways. From the moment you embark on the boat you enter a magical world. It's more than a resort, it's the people, the nature, the ocean, the food, service..and yoga - just perfect. Stop dreaming - do it! .. enjoy! ;-)

I booked Xinalani as a last minute trip, having been interested in a Yoga Retreat for some time. I wasn't disappointed. Yoga classes were taught by an extremely kind, and responsive (to any requests or individual needs) Buddhist monk. As many reviewers commented, the stairs are plentiful. You'll want to be mindful of what you bring with you from your...
