This retreat will suit those interested in the science and ancient wisdom of Ayurveda - transforming your daily food into medicines and eating for your doshas. Your body is made up of three different dosha types: vata, pitta and kapha corresponding to your physical and personality traits. Each of these doshas is a combination of two of the five basic elements (earth, water, fire, air, and space).
The five basic elements are also distributed in the six tastes known in food such as sweet, sour, salty, pungent, astringent, and bitter.
So, identifying your dominant dosha type brings in a health intelligence of how to harmonize the elements within you by picking particular food tastes that would counterbalance your dosha type. You can therefore turn your daily meals into more restoring your health than aggravating it.
At Sannyasa Wellness and Spa, you have noted among their patients that eating in line with the dosha type not only brings the healthiest balanced state but also results in weight loss, simply because the healthiest balanced state cannot possibly imply overweight or underweight for that matter. They have also noted that two weeks is an optimal period, where the tailored Ayurvedic diet plan recalibrate the body completely into its healthiest mode.
Wake up to the sound of local fauna and start the day with a pranayama class in the fresh morning air on the sandy beach of Trou-Aux-Biches. Then, have a delicious, and nutritious breakfast with plenty of time before starting a slow-paced Hatha flow aimed at loosening and relaxing the body and mind.
Enjoy a massage of your choice for the rest of the day or take a swim in the lagoon, surfing, diving in the big blue, cycling, or walking around to explore other neighboring beaches or simply enjoying the swimming pool and sun terrace of the center.
Join the Ayurvedic healthy eating cooking class in the afternoon. The local cooks serve essentially Mauritian vegetarian meals, with seasonal fruits and vegetables. Traces of both northern and southern Indian Mauritian cuisine can be found on the menu. Common preparations are delicious curry, chutney, rougaille (tomato paste that is very popular on the island), and pickles, most of which use local ingredients. The Mauritian versions of those dishes have a local flavor and differ, at times considerably, from the original Indian recipes.
The day ends with a meditation therapy class and in the evening, you will have dinner and can sometimes gather together for a quick after-meal walk on the local beach.
During the retreat, you will experience one island tour to visit most of the famous landmarks of Mauritius. Some of these places are quite unique in the world like Chamarel, the seven colored earth - a volcanic phenomenon producing seven different shades of earth, the Grand Bassin sacred lake of God Shiva with a 108 foot statue of God Shiva and the 108 Shivlings temple. You will also visit Black River Gorges National Park, Alexander Falls, Trou Aux Cerfs volcano.
Sannyasa can also organize other key island tours covering places like Le Morne Brabant - an undersea waterfall, another spectacular volcanic phenomena of Mauritius, Pamplemousses botanical garden - ranked in the top ten gardens in the world - Ile aux Cerfs, and the ocean route visiting different beaches around the island.
The tropical island of Mauritius sets the perfect environment for sun, sea, and its exclusive white sandy beaches. The wellness facilities in Mauritius are located a few minutes’ walk from the famous beach of Trou Aux Biches village. The center provides the most unspoiled, pristine, and traditional natural remedies, blending the perfect natural environment with the authentic forms of yoga and Ayurveda from the Himalayas.
The retreat is very close to local amenities, supermarkets, craft shops, diving and sports centers, local cash points, foreign exchange, taxi stands, and bus terminals. The capital city of Mauritius, Port-Louis, is only 30-minute away by bus from Sannyasa retreat facilities. Bus fare costs less than a Euro to get to Port-Louis. Known for its old architecture and sole harbour of Mauritius, Port-Louis is a great city to stroll around, providing an excellent history of the French and British colonizations.
The Natural History Museum in Port-Louis contains some fascinating artifacts, such as early maps of the island and paintings of Mauritius' original fauna - including, of course, the dodo. The bell and a cache of Spanish coins from the wreck of the St Géran are also on display. The ship's demise in 1744, off the northeast coast of Mauritius, inspired the famous love story Paul et Virginie by Bernardin de St-Pierre.

To complete your retreat, you will be served with daily vegetarian breakfasts and dinners. The local cooks serve essentially Mauritian vegetarian meals, with seasonal fruits and vegetables. Traces of both northern and southern Indian Mauritian cuisine can be found on the menu.
Common preparations are delicious curry, chutney, rougaille (tomato paste that is very popular on the island) and pickles, most of which use local ingredients. The Mauritian versions of those dishes have a local flavor and differ, at times considerably, from the original Indian recipes.
To add excitement to your retreat, there are a lot of activities that you can do during your free time. As the local beaches are surrounded by strong reefs all around, you can go for snorkeling, trekking all day along the long stretch of beaches, or go for a swim in the shallow and warm sea water.
The ocean route is probably the next best thing to do from Trou Aux Biches, cruising from North West of the island along the coastal roads all the way to the east, where you can take a boat trip to the island of Ile Aux Cerfs. The trip is also best done on the scooter, which allows for reaching each and every beach on the road. There are around a dozen of beaches on the ocean route - each quite different from each other, some of the sandy beaches, rocky beaches, Mediterranean blue water, deep blue water, forest beaches, etc.
You can also book boat trips organized in the area to see dolphins and to visit other small tropical islands around Mauritius. For as little as 30 EUR, you can visit three islands off the north coast of Mauritius. These tours include pick up and drop off from the retreat, free drinks, free open lunch buffet, snorkeling accessories, etc.
The retreat is also close to the popular tourist attraction Pamplemousses Botanical Garden. Pamplemousses is the oldest botanical garden in the Southern Hemisphere and for a long time, it ranked third among all the gardens that could be admired over the surface of the globe. It is famous for its long pond of giant water lilies and the wide variety of plants and flowers covering an area of almost 37 hectares.
The capital city of Mauritius, Port-Louis is only 30 minutes away by bus from our retreat. Known for its old architecture and harbor of Mauritius, Port-Louis is a great city to stroll around, providing an excellent history of the French and British colonizations. Things to see in the capital city are the central market (Victorian style architecture), Caudan Waterfront - the new city of Port-Louis, China Town, the Natural History of Museum (where you can see an actual stuffed dodo as well as other extinct animals), Fort Adelaide - the Citadel, Champ de Mars racecourse, the old Cathedral Church, etc.
The other main landmarks of Mauritius are mostly in the south of the island, which is covered by the island tours organized by the retreat center. These include Trou Aux Cerfs Volcano, Mare Aux Vacoas lake, Grand Bassin sacred lake of God Shiva, Alexander Falls, Black River Gorges National Park, Chamarel Waterfalls, Chamarel volcanic seven colored earth, Le Morne undersea waterfalls, Gris Gris beach, Casey Adventure park, Flic en Flac beach, etc.
