MECH Review : Dedicated to the philosophy of Yoga, Shreyas probably is the only boutique retreat of its kind in India. Combining the best of traditional and contemporary architecture with the most modern of facilities, Shreyas veers away from the conventional trappings of a resort or a retreat and offers guests a serene hideaway to commune with nature and self. Among the cool and restful sitting areas, pool side, library or the yoga and meditation room, Shreyas allows you the luxury of spending time with yourself.
Aptly described as a luxury retreat with a soul, superbly comfortable and stylish and comparable to the more exclusive and private hotels of the world, Shreyas which means "Total Excellence” strives to
achieve perfection in every aspect of your stay here.
Concept : Spread over 25-acre, Shreyas is set amidst stunning gardens and an enormous herb and vegetable farm, where guests are encouraged to till and sow. Quiet sitting areas are scattered around the gardens are ideal to relax and meditate.
The essence of Shreyas is the concept of wellness of body, mind and soul, for the purpose of self-mastery that manifests as excellence in all that they do. The principal medium through which guests are exposed to this is Yoga, which is non-denominational and open to people of all faiths. They
demonstrate through various customized programs that, contrary to popular belief, Yoga can be practiced by everyone – fit or unfit, old or young, supple or stiff. Yoga has an amazing effect on the body and mind energies allowing one to deal with life’s ups and downs with sense of equanimity.
Shreyas will appeal to those who wish to understand or familiarize themselves with the philosophical tradition of India, without necessarily delving into its organized religious aspects.
Guests are also encouraged to get away from an over-worked and hectic lifestyle or the rigors of the office, to come and de-stress by working in the vegetable and herb garden, planting paddy and getting their feet dirty! A true retreat geared to self-discovery, where the intention is to bring a little of the best of Indian spiritual wisdom (namely, Yoga) into the lives of its guests.
Their intense and interactive CSR programs involve working on the farm, cooking and feeding the inmates of an old age home that Shreyas has adopted.
