"Will definitely come back"
Room: got upgraded to cabana room with a nice pool view and balcony. The bed is comfy and have air con. I like the bathroom that integrates into the nature.
Location: 30 mins from airport and the Main Street is 15 mins on foot. Of course things are much easier if you can drive scooter.
Food: Mana provides a selection of nice local food. You can have plenty of other options in the Main Street as well.
Yoga: I’m a regular and the classes are up to my expectations. I like it because they have four classes a day with different practice.
Facility: two swimming pools with enough space for you to have sun bath and chill. The decoration inside Mana is amazing too!
Staff: can’t ask for more, they’re all nice and helpful! They make you feel like home.
Surf: The surfing lessons are not provided by Mana. Do have a try if you like water sports. The beaches are nice and you won’t regret.
Spa: the area/ room for massage is nice and it doesn’t cost you much. A must-do activity after the whole day work out.

"Amazing Yoga retreat!"
Mana is a fantastic place to relax and take care of your health. We loved the always friendly and helpful staff members, passionate yoga teachers, delicious food and colourful drinks, and the place itself - a beautiful oasis among palm trees with clean and stunning bungalows, and a clear swimming pool. We also loved the cinema every evening :)

"Fantastic Mini Getaway "
Luscious gardens, peaceful vibes, friendly and helpful staff and great food. Winning! Much needed break from Bekasi.
from South Africa, June 2019
Lovely retreat for 4 days with great balance of yoga, detox and great food. Building work was going on so that was a little disappointing but the space is really lovely and they’re extending, so that was just unlucky timing. Food and service were fantastic and yoga was excellent! Highly recommend this as a spot for chilling.

"A wonderful experience to be repeated"
What a treat to have stayed in Mana Yoga Retreat for holidays. Everything was perfect. As soon as you enter Mana’s property it feels like it’s a different world..like paradise. The garden is spacious with lush vegetation. The relaxing swimming pool or the small huts in shade are perfect to spend the afternoon at. The restaurant offers super tasty fresh juice and amazing food. The spa package was great too; the therapists are very caring and the environment is perfect to have treatments.
I loved the yoga space with the cool breeze. They offer different types of yoga 4 times per day.
Staff is very friendly, flexible and always welcomes you with a nice smile.
I took some optional surf lessons that were great too.
The place is a bit far from beautiful beaches but a lot of people rent a scooter to get there.
I definitely recommend this place and plan to come back again hopefully soon!

"A true eco-friendly and relaxing escape! We love it!"
I love Mana so much, the staffs are super friendly and with good heart. We are there for 7D6N full board. We are surprised by the food everyday even they don’t have a big menu. I love their breakfast bowl and smoothies bowl. It is what I want to start my day after my morning yoga practice. The beetroot burger is super. Everything handcrafted. I can’t help myself to ask the chef what is their recipe of their food. So delicious and healthy. If you are vegan or gluten-free, it certainly fulfilled your need. My package included 3days Spa ( body massage, body scrub, body wrap, hair treatment and herbal ball massage) which is super! Totally from head to toe! I feel so relieved and recharged after that. I can access as many yoga as I want every day(4 yoga classes per day) I love the yoga room because it is open air and quiet with plant surrounded. We also love the location of Mana. It is close to Kuta beach and Kuta town, which got beautiful cafe and bars. Only 15mins motor ride to the secret sunset point Segar, and some lovely hidden beach for surf and chill.
We have no regret to come all the way to Lombok and we love it so much. Already thinking of when should we go back!
Definitely recommend to people who want a quiet holiday and if you love surfing, it definitely meet you expectations!
We also love the way they treat the animals, cats living there happily;)

"my retreat at mana"
I loved everything. Staff, food, yoga, the place itself.. so tranquille and so lovingly taken care of. nothing but bright smiles-a very happy place where one can just be.

"It’s been a pleasure! Thank you Mana! "
From the moment I arrived at Mana I felt at home! Everything was very welcoming and I’ve never seen a cuter dorm than this one. The daily yoga classes really improved my wellbeing and my personal yoga practice. For me it was also perfect to start the day with a gentle stretch and the delicious, freshly prepared breakfast! Also the size of the accommodation is very private and strengthens a sense of community not only between the guests but also the staff! I can’t wait to come back in the nearer future and all the best to the lovely people from Mana Yoga Retreat!

"El mejor final de mi viaje por Indonesia"
Todo. Empezando por la comunicación fluida, y ayuda de Evie antes de la llegada. Me resultó de gran ayuda. El transporte incluido en el package, desde y hacia aeropuerto o Puerto. El restaurante y staff son muy buenos. Buenas ensaladas, desayunos, smoothies y el mejor café que he tenido en un hotel viajando en Indonesia . That's a point for me😊.
Las zonas comunes, super. La habitación compartida es cómoda, grande y buena deco. Pero quizás, sobre todo me quedo con las clases de yoga, además en un ambiente inmejorable. Y los tratamientos de spa. ISNA,, creo que se llama, tiene unas manos maravillosas y es muy simpática.
En general, todo me gustó, estuve muy relajada y ahora vuelvo a casa bastante descansada.
Mil gracias a todos.!espero verlos pronto😉

"Relaxing zen zone"
I did a week retreat package in September. As it’s the dry season the weather was lovely, mostly sunny every day and nice, not-too-hot temperature.
I really enjoyed the space at Mana, I stayed in the dorm and there was enough privacy in the bunks and space to move around. It was a nice way to meet others and was kept clean.
The classes catered for most people, and there was a decent variety to choose from.
All the staff are absolutely lovely.
from Taiwan, July 2019
The staff were so lovely and helpful. The place was beautiful and quiet... and cool with lots of trees for shade. There were also lot of different places around the pool and in the gardens to relax and read a book. There was a variety of yoga classes to choose from and the movies each night were fun. Thank you for a lovely stay.

"Peaceful yoga retreat with amazing people (staff and guests)"
- Beautiful and well maintained place. Feels like you're in your own bubble and you never need to leave. I stayed in the dorm and even that was gorgeous.
- The staff were always so friendly and happy, and that energy really reverberated in the place. I think this part is super important and so I hope management continue to foster this.
- Location was it was hidden enough to feel private, but still close enough to the main street
- Yoga shala is beautiful (located outdoors)
- Loved all the hangout spots (bean bags, little huts etc)
- The massages were phenomenal! After every message, I felt rejuvenated and so relaxed. The massage 'parlour' was really beautiful, and the therapists were SO nice and skilled.
- This place also attracts a certain type of person. I met such amazing and beautiful people during my stay, who I hope to stay in in touch with.
- Overall, amazing so I even extended. Most people wish they could stay longer :)

Wat een prachtig resort. Twee mooie zwembaden met ligbedden en parasols, zelfs een hangmat. Schietende tuin en geweldige cabana's en tuin villa's. Het eten is heerlijk, de yogalessen (3 per dag) zijn goed en variërend, de spa biedt heerlijke behandelingen (bijna allemaal ervaren en allemaal boven verwachting) en het personeel is ontzettend vriendelijk. Absoluut een aanrader!
