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...

This is the 4th time I have visited Prema Shanti - and that says it all. I truly love it here. 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...

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 know this sounds a bit hippy dippy, but if you visit Prema Shanti and immerse yourself in the program of meditation, yoga, mindfulness and natural surrounds - even just for...

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.

I visited Prema Shanti with my partner, and we both felt nothing short of enlightened. Mara and Janardhan are radiant beings and amazing teachers, and we both feel blessed to have met them. Gained so much insight into both the practices of yoga and meditation, but also into ourselves and our relationship. Would recommend everyone a stay at Prema Shanti!...

Prema Shanti offered me so many levels of therapeutic bliss. I desperately needed to escape from the Sydney rat race and this was the perfect way to do so. Some of the highlights were …. waking up to the birds in the Daintree Rainforest, sharing the experience with some amazing people who I will cherish forever, no phone or internet...

What can we say about this incredible place in middle of the Daintree rainforest from the moment we were greeted at our car by Janardan in the pooring rain till the moment we left we felt the positive energy flowing out of every pore of the place, words cannot explain the experience, but I'll endeavour to give it a go,...

A stand out feature of our stay at Prema Shanti was the care and consideration shown by Mara and Janardhan to tailor the meditation and yoga to the experience and needs of the guests, without compromising the integrity of these observances. Having undergone spinal surgery, I felt safe, guided and appropriately challenged by the yoga, and rejuvenated by the mediation....
