As a group leader I found this place to be exceptional. Top shelf on every level. We were pampered on and off the mat.

I stayed at Blue Spirit for a week long Ashtanga yoga retreat! What a fabulous place. I was initially unsure about eating vegetarian for a week and was pleasantly surprised by the food!
