There’s a reason why so many people are drawn to the Himalayas… the incredible beauty that makes the eyes widen, the kindness of the people that makes your heart expand and a feeling of peace and freedom that you can only find here. It is something that cannot be explained and can only be experienced.
This will be a breathtaking journey in Nepal! Discover the food, nature, yoga and meditation secrets of Nepal’s Himalayas in your off-the-grid, eco-luxury boutique resort!
1 night in a stunning hotel in Kathmandu
3 nights in your own eco villa
3 nights in your own luxury eco tented-villa
*All transfers to the resort from Kathmandu airport are included
Nestled in the natural paradise of a lushly forested valley, and set against the backdrop of the majestic Himalayan mountain range, the retreat is a truly eco-sensitive luxury resort experience.
Located in the unique setting of a working organic farm, the natural beauty of the setting reflects Nepal’s historic heritage as a centre of spiritual practice and the resort’s tranquil environment is perfect for undistracted meditation and yoga.
Here you will enjoy morning and evening professional yoga and meditation teachings, an eco-farm tour, a ‘food as medicine’ and ‘Nepalese cuisine cooking class’ from Marissa’s new cookbook ‘Himalayan Vegetarian Kitchen’.

Your first 4 days will be staying in villas surrounded by rice fields, then you have the luxury of the another 4 days in tented-villas in the forest by Phewa Lake, looking out to the Himalayan mountain range.
