Refunds are available under the following terms and conditions:

Which rooms have private bathrooms?

Beachfront Deluxe rooms, Oceanview Deluxe rooms, and Bayside Rooms with Bath all have ensuite private bathrooms. All other accommodations are within a one-minute walk of shared restrooms.  

I’m travelling with my family. Which rooms are best for that?

The Beachfront Deluxe rooms can fit four people while the Oceanview Deluxe rooms can fit three. Both of these room options have a balcony and private bathroom. Another option is the spacious twin bed room, which can fit three people (two single beds plus one cot). These rooms are located throughout the Ashram and within a one-minute walk of shared washrooms.  

What is the difference between a Beachfront Deluxe room and an Oceanview Deluxe room?

Great question! These rooms are quite comparable: private bathroom, balcony, provisioned with beach towels and a tea kettle, located close to the ocean. The key differences are the bed arrangement, the color of the wood floors, and proximity to the yoga platform. Oceanview Deluxe rooms are close to the yoga platform. They can be arranged with two twin beds or one king bed, with space to add a cot or crib. Beachfront Deluxe rooms are further from the main concourse and therefore more secluded. They have two double beds and room for a cot or crib (no king bed option).  

Do I need to bring towels or bedding? What comes with the room?

What’s Included
Linens Bath Towel Beach Towel Private Bathroom Air Conditioning Tea Kettle Mini Fridge
Beachfront + Oceanview Deluxe Rooms
Bayside Room with Bath
All Other Rooms
Tent Hut
Tent Space

All of the rooms and tent huts are within a 5-minute walk of the beach, dining area, harbor, and yoga platforms. Rooms without private bathrooms are within a 1-minute walk of communal washrooms. Toiletries (shampoo, bath soap, toothpaste, etc.) are not included in the rooms – please pack accordingly or plan to purchase in the Boutique. There is a communal ironing board in the guest laundry room. No hair dryers available. Deluxe rooms and Bayside rooms are provided with hand soap. Tent huts have electricity, a lamp, a fan, and basic furnishings (bed, wardrobe, bookshelf).  

What is included in the accommodations price?

In addition to the room itself, the accommodations price includes the following:

  • Two delicious, homemade vegetarian meals
  • Two daily yoga classes (morning and afternoon)
  • Yoga Vacation Program workshop (midday)
  • Satsangs

Tuition for special courses and programs is in addition to the accommodations price. See our Program Calendar for upcoming courses and pricing details.  

Will I share the room with a stranger?

The Ashram used to offer dormitory-style accommodations in which guests booked one bed in a shared room and were open to sharing with a stranger (also called a friend waiting to happen). Since March 2020, this has not been an option. All rooms are now private, meaning that you’ll stay by yourself or with your chosen travel companions.
