My husband went to Shunyata for a 4 night/5 day detox, he rang me after 3 days to suggest i come the next week - I'm so pleased I did! Paru's passion for helping people in every aspect of their life is apparent from the moment you meet. Everything was fantastic, the great clean but delicious food, the views, the...

Great little place to detox and get out of the hum drum of life. Paru is great cook and knows how to do a great massage. Perched on hill with beautiful views of Diamond Harbour. If you don't mind piece and quiet I would recommend this.

Stayed for one night/two days and had a much-needed, totally relaxing break. Paru's food is amazing and beautifully presented. Loved the morning yoga on the sunny deck and all the treatments are wonderful. Left feeling relaxed and revitalized.

After a few recent challenges in my life I needed a break, time to reconnect with myself. Paru made the whole experience wonderful. Beautiful, healthy food, relaxing treatments and to top it off lost some weight too. I return home completely rejuvenated. 🙏

I stayed with Paru for 3 days/2 nights. The setting is absolutely beautiful, as is Paru's cooking! At a challenging time in my life, my stay was just what I needed to rejuvenate my spirit. I feel a happier, more positive person. Thank you Paru.

My friend and I spent 2 nights at Paru's home in beautiful Diamond Harbour having a much needed rest. Paru literally wouldn't let us lift a finger and went out of her way to make us feel welcome in her own home. Paru is a very good cook and we enjoyed her nourishing meals along with morning yoga and mediation...

The bottom line of my stay is that the clear lack of cleanliness let me to leave on the second day of my intended 10 day retreat.
