  • The natural view is nice but when it comes to the interaction with staff..yes as other said he just want money and we serve water to everyone but here as a room service you have to buy water bottle from them they don't have RO or water cooler and when we ask them to atleast provide us water they simply say fill the normal tap water. The behavior of staff is the main concern he is very rude..I'll suggest everyone don't come they will do formalities as i m regretting staying here. If you want a healthy and happy environment then this is not the option.
  • The most clean and quiet place in varanasi. The Ashram is facing the Gangas with a lovely green grass and trees. The owner is a real yogi, master in Ayruveda and has a lot of knowledge to give. The whole family and staff are so kind and they make you feel very welcome. Highly highly recommended!!!💚🙏
