The first day when I entered this Nirvana Nature Cure, I was not so sure whether to continue my wellness holiday considering the property looked not so luxurious with everything just too simple. Five days at the retreat and I realized the power of Naturopathy and the service quality. Today I recommend Nirvana Nature Cure as one of the most reasonable and good quality Retreat to cure body problems or as a detox rejuvenation holiday.

From Sunset Meditation to SattvicDetox Meals to Mud Baths to Hydrotherapy to the Kriyas of the world, this place is settled to set your soul to abound.
Hospitality Experience: Each and every staff is extremely polite, caring, well trained, experienced, meticulous and hard-working. I would often go for long walks of post therapies. The staff would make it a point to hunt for me in the entire retreat until they would find me to give that one glass of chaach as instructed by the nutritionist.
