Ashiyana is like paradise! It's so tranquil you will never want to leave. Yoga in the gorgeous main shala is an absolute treat, looking out at the gardens with the sound of the ocean close by. I stayed in the palm grove accomodation which was beautiful. The food is fresh and delicious. yes, yes, yes!
