"Excellent classes In a perfect location with amazing food."
Everything! The location was perfect - kudle beach and gokarna have everything you could possibly need. The setting - the Tipi garden is welcoming, has fantastic shower and toilet facilities and is on the edge of the jungle so there's an amazing view. The food - Yorgo is a fantastic cook and host. The variety of dishes and the fact that he really went out of his way to cater to us as vegans - the vegan tzatziki was insanely delicious. And finally the yoga!!!!! Atalya was a fantastic teacher who made you feel very comfortable and welcome. Her lessons were always varied and we were given 3 levels of difficulty for each asana meaning each person could do each position without feeling too pushed. I would highly recommend this retreat to anyone who wants to explore a wonderful location and feel energised, strong and well fed :D

It's an Amazing place and the accomodation was really beautiful. We started in the rooftop and loved it! Atalya was a great yoga teatcher. Made us feel very confident in the movements, and going through everything. We would love to go again

"Excellent retreat "
Atalya the yoga teacher was amazing. You could really feel her presence and she encouraged to be confident and comfortable but still work and deepen the postures. It was really the kind of encouragement I needed. I walked out of the retreat as a more confident yoga practitioner than before. And thanks also to Yorgo and his cooking skills.

"Very pleasant stay"
Atalya and Yorgo are really warm and kind hosts: they are really discreet and respectful of the privacy of their guests, but at the same time ready to help with anything (recommendations where to eat, arrange taxis, ...)
Yorgo is a really great cook who cooks with love and you can taste this in his food!
Atalya’s yoga lessons are really nice, she adapts to the general level of the participants and is very attentative to the correctness of the poses.
I would recommend Tipi resorts to anyone!

Where to begin? The Tipi Garden Resort is an oasis in an already magical beach. It's just behind the beach but it feels so peaceful and quiet and is surrounded by unspoilt nature. I learnt so much in the yoga classes and the food was divine. Our hosts made me feel so welcome and I was a part of the family in no time. I will definitely be going back and I recommend you do too!

We had an amazing time at the Tipi Garden Resort. The place looks incredible and it was just a minute from the beach. I thoroughly enjoyed the yoga and learnt a lot about correct alignment of my body. And the food was delicious! We will definitely be coming back.. much love to you guys!

The Tipi Gardens Resort was the highlight of our travels around India. Staying with Yorgo and Atalya was like staying with some old and dear friends, absolutely lovely kind people. The land itself is stunning, set behind one of the sea front restaurants is this little bird watching paradise, close enough to be on the beach within 30 seconds of leaving your bed, but far away enough to only hear the animals. We stayed in one of the Tipis, Amazing! They take glamping to a whole new level, two actual beds, hanging wardrobe, fan! Pimped out to the max. We were meant to stay for 5 days and ended up staying for 2 weeks, we just couldn't bring ourselves to leave. We did yoga with Atalya twice a day for the whole time, she's by far the best teacher I've worked with, and Yorgo cooked us 5 star � breakfast and lunch. I can't recommend these guys and there resort highly enough, we're already planning our next trip!

the tipi garden resort is not a typical beach resort. It is lovely place with tipis, rooftop bedroom and regular rooms. I had a lovely time, hosts took a great care of me :). Stay there if you wanna have a very nice yoga classes, tasty Mediterranean food and if you don't mind being wake up by hundreds of birds signing :)
