"Fantastic experience, will definitely be back! "
Everything was fantastic. The food, the accommodation, the settings and facilities, the instructors, the yoga itself and all the extras included in the programme. I got birthday cake and a song while I was there too. Met fabulous people and will 100% go back. Cannot recommend this retreat highly enough 👌🏻

"My week in Hariharalya"
I got exactly what I wanted from this vacation - a body, mind and soul break with great people, great food in Cambodia - a country I wanted to visit (this was my first trip there). They had many activities - cooking, visit to the hidden temple, games night, Khmer wedding musicians and game, massage that kept things interesting and lively and it was well organised.

"Either u hate or love it"
For us, we loved it, we loved the practice of mindfulness, silence and the yummy vegan food... the staff are all very smiley and helpful. Our stay is wonderful. Thanks to Hariharalaya, we went back feeling lighter and more mindful.

"Happy Hariharalaya "
from Thailand, January 2018
Hariharalaya is an amazing, beautiful place. The natural surroundings help to keep the place cool even in the heat of Cambodia. The chefs make incredible, delicious, wholesome vegetarian food and there is always more than enough. I loved not needing an alarm clock or my phone for 6 days. Joel does a great job at teaching chanting and meditation. If you need to relax and unwind I would highly recommend visiting. I also loved Julia’s conscious massage course it helped to let me loosen up with touching and being touched. The highlight of the stay was visiting the temple, being blessed by the monks, asanas under the trees with the sun shining through the branches and the breeze gently allowing the leaves to fall down around us, a walking meditation around the temple and forest with leaves crunching under our feet and an eye gazing meditation to connect with our fellow yogis.

"Hurrah for Hariharalaya"
The attention to detail was surprising and wonderful - encouraging stillness, play, nourishment & nurture.

"A beautiful experience."
Staff are lovely and very genuine. They sincerely care and live the sort of life they espouse. Unlike some retreats I have been on they are not just going through the motions. There is something for every one at this retreat and the yoga is quite gentle. The accomodation is basic but perfectly adequate and makes for a low environmental impact. If you have issues with bugs and critters you may find the location challenging. I loved it.

Hariharalaya is een prachtige pled om tot rust te Komen. Helaas is er veel luide muziek die dat verstoort. Ze hebben een strak programma waar je je aan moet houden. Dat vond ik lastig, alles ging zonder klok maar met gong. Hierdoor weinig rust met de afspraken die je ook had. Ik vond de groep van 30 mensen erg groot, maar heb veel leuke gezellige mensen ontmoet. Gevoelens delen in een groep van 30 mensen die je eigelijk niet kent, vond ik heel ongemakkelijk, en zoals het ging en de staf daar niet op inspeelde vond ik heel ongepast. Mijn tranen hebben me geheeld. De Hariharalaya is een geoliede machine die 90 mensen per maand op bezoek krijgt. Het is als een cassettebandje dat op repeat staat, en in mijn ogen daardoor erg vlak. De yogalessen vond ik fantastisch.

"New experience getting to know myself"
People, program, food everything was way much good than I expected. You can relax in the beautiful village surrounded by palm trees and other tropical plants, and learn how to meditate and focus on yourself.
