Shreyas is an exclusive retreat which looks to combine fine living with a spiritual touch, Yoga being the principal medium through which we communicate the message of "living life completely". At Shreyas, we aim to demonstrate that Yoga can be learnt and practiced by all, irrespective of age, health and faith. We also believe that you do not have to compromise on your creature comforts to get access to authentic teachers and teachings from this eternal, vibrant and universally applicable philosophy. Life is a journey of self-discovery and Shreyas provides the sacred space needed to retreat, reflect and rediscover yourself for a fulfilling, effective and purposeful life.
Set in 25 acres of pristine countryside, 1 hour's drive from Bangalore city, Shreyas offers you a luxurious home away from home. The 25 guests that can be accommodated at one time have the rare luxury of being cared for by our carefully trained staff in a secluded, private and serene environment. Belying the idea that a retreat means roughing it out, cottages at Shreyas Retreat are built for comfort. Accommodation comprises of 8 elegant and earthy garden cottages with tented canopies, enclosed courtyard & open-air shower rooms), 3 luxury poolside cottages and one luxury 3-bedroom cottage.
Each well-appointed, elegantly designed garden cottage ("Tent") sits on its own plot of land, surrounded by a generous expanse of trees and flowering shrubs and has en suite bathrooms that open onto private walled courtyards.
The 3 en-suite pool cottages that overlook the signature swimming pool are just as exclusive. Each one is conceptualised to soothe, restore and rejuvenate.
The three bedroom cottage accommodates 5 people, has its own private living area, and each tastefully decorated bedroom comes with an en-suite bathroom.
Shreyas is dedicated to helping you achieve a perfect balance in body, mind and spirit. To deepen the sense of quietude, and be more in tune with your inner self, you will be attending daily yoga and meditation classes, and working with instructors on an individual basis. Lessons, which are non-denominational and suitable for everyone, cover various aspects of yoga and meditation including classical Hatha yoga postures, Mouna (silence), Pranayama (breathing techniques) and Pratyahara (internalising). A dedicated yoga hall provides ample space for these lessons, and the retreat’s compound has many more areas specially created for quiet repose.
Shreyas offers a variety of yoga packages and retreats for guests wanting to deepen their knowledge and practice of these age-old, time-testes techniques. Packages can also be customized for you, depending on your specific needs and level of experience.
Meals at Shreyas are truly a fine dining experience. Shreyas serves a variety of gourmet vegetarian meals, with flavours from India, Southern Europe and the Orient. All the ingredients are organic, home-grown at Shreyas and freshly picked for meals. Shreyas is happy to accommodate any special dietary requirements or restrictions that guests may have, and plan special menus for them.
Shreyas offers many recreational activities to guests looking for fitness, rejuvenation, relaxation or simply laying back and recharging their batteries away from the stresses of daily life. Our massage centre offers expert Balinese, Thai and Swedish massages, body scrubs, aromatherapy and more. Guests can enjoy a leisurely swim in the temperature controlled infinity pool or simply lounge in the deck chairs with a favourite book from our extensive library. A gymnasium and a 3-kilometre jogging trail await guests wanting to stretch and tone their muscles, and cricket enthusiasts can head for the nets where a professional bowling machine will test their batting skills. Guests can end their regimen with a relaxing soak in the Jacuzzi or the invigorating steam room. And for movie buffs, there are over 500 movies in the Home Theatre for your viewing pleasure.
From its calming façade, to the cuisine, exercise classes, spa menus and no-alcohol policy, every detail is carefully considered so that guests are provided with optimal opportunities to realise material and mental harmony, however short their stay.
