"Amazing experience!"

I had a great time and learned a lot of valuable things. The staff is very nice, always helpful and extremely accommodating.

In the beginning I felt a little weird about traveling alone to Mauritius but I soon felt like I had a mauritian family.

Thank you Vishal, Rita, Dave & Sandeep!

"I will warmly recommend the 8 Days Yoga Retreat at Sannyasa!"

During this retreat you are in the hands of the Sannyasa team where each individual is extremely passionate about their field. You wake up every morning at 5 to walk to the beach where Vishal guides you passionately through the pranayam breathing exercises. Being at the beach at 5 in the morning is an experience itself. You hear the quiet morning waves and feel the sun rising on your skin. After the pranayam session I was provided with a delicious and healthy breakfast in the best company of Vinoo and Sundeep who are in charge of the general maintenance at Sannyasa. They are both very friendly and loveable and will happily show you around Trou Aux Biches and help you arrange trips to different places of the island. At 10 o'clock every day I enjoyed the Hatha yoga class instructed by the very nice and calm Mr. Daya, who is also very passionate about his yoga and about finding exercises that benefit your needs. The day ended with the meditation class guided by Vishal followed by an amazing home cooked dinner. The cook, Rita, is not only a passionate cook but as well an amazingly loving person. During my retreat every day had a perfect ending sitting around the table with the Sannyasa family, enjoying varieties of Ritas local, home cooked dishes. Every single spice and vegetable has a purpose in Ritas cooking and the menu is very thought through and is as healthy as it is delicious. I will warmly recommend the 8 days meditation, yoga and detox retreat at Sannyasa.

The chakra cleansing meditation was great! The abhyanga massage therapy was exceptional! The closeness to the beach. The very tasty local food. Sightseeing tour to chamarel the seven colored earth and all the interesting information about Mauritius. Vishal has a great knowledge about the island. Vishal is very spirituell…while he was working with me he was "connected" to a "higher force/energy" and I could feel this connection...there was at this time nothing else but me and this connection with a purity.

"Wonderful stay"

This was a wonderful experience! Vishal is a great teacher and very friendly and accomodating. The breathing excercises by the sea at dawn were a unique experience. We felt welcome from the very first minute. He has a super friendly team: Sundeep takes care of the tasty breakfasts and is very kind. Dave, his father, teaches yoga and makes it also accessible to beginners, like my husband. You can tell that he doesn't just go through the motions, but lives yoga. And then there is Rita, Sundeep's mother and Dave's wife, who prepares delicious meals for dinner and who has a passion for cooking. We had some really lovely conversations and it felt like we'd been "adopted". We can only recommend Sannyasa and hope to be back soon! Namaste!

"Highly recommended - Das Mauritiuserlebnis besonderer Art "

Umgebung / Unterkunft - Sannyasa Wellness and Spa findet sich nicht unweit des paradiesischen Strandes von Trou aux Biches im Nord-Westen von Mauritius (ca. 5 bis 10 Gehminuten) - sauber, relativ windstill, nicht überlaufen... „Noch“ ein wahrer Geheimtipp! Die Unterkunft ist liebevoll eingerichtet und auf Sauberkeit wird großer Wert gelegt.

Essen - Rita (die gute Seele des Sannyasa Teams) zaubert jeden Abend ein Dinner der Extraklasse - eine kulinarische Reise durch die Küche Mauritius (vom indischen Hochzeitsessen bis zum traditionellen Sklavenessen). Tipp: Man sollte sich nicht entgehen lassen Rita beim Kochen über die Schulter zu schauen... Auch wenn Rita’s Küche das Frühstück etwas in den Schatten stellt, ist das Frühstück ein wahrer Pluspunkt: Gesundes (ausgefallenes) Frühstück, das zum Nachmachen einlädt…

Yoga: Das Programm (5 Uhr aufstehen für die erste Yoga Stunde) klingt nicht nach Urlaub. Doch nach der ersten Pranayama Stunde, unmittelbar am Strand mit der aufgehenden Sonne, ist das frühe Aufstehen vergessen... Trotz meiner geringen Vorkenntnisse in Sachen Yoga habe ich mich in den einzelnen Unterrichtseinheiten (Pranayama am Morgen, gefolgt von Hatha am Vormittag und Meditation am Abend) gut aufgehoben gefühlt – auf meine individuellen Vorkenntnisse und Bedürfnisse wurde optimal eingegangen …

Sannyasa Team – Der größte Pluspunkt ist allerdings das mehr als herzliche Sannyasa Team, das meinen Urlaub zu einem einzigartigen Erlebnis gemacht hat!

"Une retraite exceptionnelle, ressourçante et inspirante"

Tellement de choses, j'espère rien oublier! Vishal et Ismael sont 2 professeurs merveilleux, spirituels, bienveillants, accueillants, remplis d'amour inconditionnel et ont un immense plaisir à partager leurs connaissances et expériences. Les cours sur la plage ou au studio sont étoffés et passionnants. La retraite est personnalisée, évolutive et inspirante. Les 2 ont également un réel plaisir à nous montrer la région que ce soit par les excursions organisées et négociées ou en plus personnalisé si on en ressent l'envie. La maison et le logement sont d'une propreté irréprochable et d'un confort parfait, tout est équipé pour notre bien-être (cuisine, Wifi, moustiquaire, clim, piscine, plages à proximité, etc). Le bilan et le soin ayurvédiques prodigués par Vishal sont aussi extraordinaires. Les 2 ont un tel plaisir de partager des discussions et de cuisiner ou de nous faire goûter à la nourriture fraiche et locale, c'est magique ! Je me suis sentie comme une reine, j'ai dû avoir le droit de laver une tasse une fois, sinon on prenait soin de moi en permanence afin que je puisse me ressourcer au mieux. Me concernant, j'ai rencontré 2 personnes qui sont entrées dans mon coeur à jamais tellement ils m'ont touché, m'ont appris, m'ont fait confiance et donné confiance et m'ont enveloppé d'amour spirituel à haut niveau. Pas de doute, je conseille à tout le monde cette expérience incroyable et magique que ce soit pour l'Ile Maurice, l'emplacement, les hôtes, les cours, les excursions !

"Stunning 4 day retreat "

I was at Sannyasa retreat for 4 days and what an amazing experience

Even before I arrived Vishal kept in contact to ensure that all would run smoothly for my arrival and it was comforting to know that someone from the retreat would be picking me up from the airport

The retreat is tucked away in a quiet part of Trou aux Biches where you will find everything you need pharmacy, shops, cafes, restaurants, bank and post office

The beach is a short stroll away where in the peace of dawn each morning the Pranayama class is held

Kind and caring Sandeep provides wholesome and healthy breakfasts to set you up for the day

Yoga with Dav is relaxing and his kind nature left me feeling very nurtured

Massage at the retreat is truly amazing and both Vishal and Vilash have ‘magic hands’ easing away all aches and pains and calming the mind

Vegetarian meals with local produce are prepared lovingly by the lovely Rita. My tummy expanded !!!

The excursions are definitely an added bonus to soak up some culture

Meditation led by the incredibly kind and knowledgable Vishal were truly life changing for me and gave me the tools and tips to take away with to practice in my own

I would recommend this retreat and WILL be coming back for more

Love you all

Very recommendable!

Ibrahim Switzerland


My stay at Sannyasa was really excellent. The Queen room and bathroom are really spacious and comfortable. I loved the common kitchen area where I was able to share friendly moments with other guests as well as our Vishal host. Having visited many beaches on the island which is 5 minute walk is probably the most beautiful with that of Mont Choisy (next village). I will never tire of attending the sunset on the beach of Trou aux Biches. This is a show not to miss! With regard to the wellness Sannyasa, I really want to thank Vishal and Ismael for their excellent yoga and their Ayurvedic massages. Their therapeutic approaches and their theoretical knowledge allowed me to open a new chapter not on the spa but on the management of my body and my health.

Yoga and Ayurveda are a way of life for Vishal and he never hesitates to give advice tailored to each and to share knowledge.

Vishal has not hesitated to take on his free time for me to discover the island. I spent unforgettable moments whether at the National Park, during the ascent of Morne during our trip to the south of the island or explore the nightlife in Grand Bay and still many other activities. Vishal really a huge thank you for this visit so rewarding. I come back for sure!

Mon séjour au Sannyasa a été vraiment excellent. La Queen room et sa salle de bain sont vraiment spacieuses et agréables. J'ai adoré l'espace cuisine en commun où j'ai pu partager des moments sympathiques avec les autres vacanciers ainsi qu'avec notre hôte Vishal.

Pour avoir visité bon nombre plages sur l'île (merci Vishal!), celle qui se trouve à 5min à pied est probablement la plus belle avec celle de Mont-Choisy (village d'à côté). Je ne me lasserai jamais d'assister au coucher de soleil sur la plage de Trou-aux-Biches. C'est un spectacle à ne pas rater!

En ce qui concerne le wellness au Sannyasa, je tiens vraiment à remercier Vishal et Ismael pour leurs excellents cours de yoga ainsi que leurs massages ayurvédiques! Leur approche thérapeutique ainsi que leurs connaissances théoriques m'ont permis d'ouvrir un nouveau chapitre non pas sur le wellness mais sur la gestion de mon corps et de ma santé.

Le yoga et l'Ayurveda sont un mode de vie pour Vishal et il n'hésite jamais à donner des conseils adaptés à chacun ainsi qu'à partager ses connaissances.

Vishal n'a pas hésité à prendre sur son temps libre pour me fait découvrir l'île. J'ai passé des moments inoubliables que cela soit au Parc national, lors de l'ascension du Morne, lors notre excursion au sud de l'île ou la découverte de la vie nocturne à Grand Baie et encore tant d'autres activités. Vraiment un énorme merci Vishal pour ce séjour si enrichissant. Je reviens pour sûr!
