I can't say enough about my stay at Prema Shanti Yoga Retreat I arrived a 'stressed out Melburnian' needing to check out of the rat race for awhile. Mara & Jenardhan couldn't have provided a more caring relaxing restorative environment to unwind in. From the beautiful meals, lovely room, tailored yoga and meditation to the idyllic setting in the rainforest... More

Prema Shanti (PS) is a wonderful place. If you like yoga and are open to meditation, then PS is definitely worth a visit. There is a nice balance between the yoga (about an hr and a half each day) and meditation (just a 1/2hr a day) on one hand, and having unstructured free time to pursue all that the Daintree... More

I spent four nights at Prema Shanti and I could have easily stayed much much longer. Your day begins with morning meditation followed by a fresh and healthy breakfast prepared by Mara and Janardhan. After this, the day is all yours to spend however you choose. Prema Shanti is perfectly located in the heart of the Daintree so everything is... More

Thank you Mara and Janardhan for the wonderful stay at Prema Shanti. It is a really special place, right in the heart of the Daintree Rainforest and my second time staying at this eco-retreat. It was so good to relax in a hammock on the verandah and read helpful books from their library. The yoga classes by Mara and Janardhan... More

If you need to escape a hectic life and realign your priorities as well as your body this is the place to do it. There are magnificent beaches, water holes and walks to enjoy. Often it feels like you... More

If you're after a Golden Door luxury style retreat, Prema Shanti is not it, and nor does it pretend or even wish to be anything but what it is. For me it was a profound mental, spiritual and emotional experience (not to mention the "feel good" soreness from yoga); I challenged myself to confront deep personal issues within the safe,...

It's been a full week since I left Prema Shanti and daily I still think about it. I feel infused with a new sense of calmness, clarity and wellness.

I recently spent 6 nights at Prema Shanti Yoga Retreat and just loved it. Mara and Janardhan take very good care of their guests, providing wonderful yoga classes and delicious home cooked meals. The rooms are very comfortable and the ambience of the beautiful rainforest setting is fabulous. A piece of paradise.
