Reviews for Yoga, Ayurvedic cooking & detox retreat in the Austrian Alps


review 13 Sep 2015

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

I enjoyed the combination of the yoga, mindfulness, walking, good food and friendship on this trip. The activities were organised well and delivered professionally by our hosts but what made this trip particularly special was the friendly atmosphere created by the hosts. We were made to feel special right from the start and we loved eating together with other guests around the table and by the end of the week, it was like we had known each other for years. However, the real highlight for me was the amazing meals created by the Chef which were healthy, delicious and used locally sourced produce.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Combine spending some time relaxing as well as joining in the activities on offer. The hosts are used to supporting people of all fitness levels so don't be afraid to talk to them as this is a safe environment to try something new. Do spend time talking to fellow guests and enjoy the meals but also make time for some mindful contemplation of the lovely surroundings. The building itself is very comfortable - ask for a room with a balcony if you want a view of the Alps from your room. The location is remote so talk to the hosts about the best way to get to MoaAlm.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes definitely. The Chef used as many locally sourced products as possible. The whole set up is to support conservation and the hosts are very knowledgeable on impacts on the environment. The hosts are also mindful of the local community and make every effort to work with the local people for the benefit of the whole community.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent, all the ingredients of this holiday came together to provide us with an amazing experience. The slogan for the company is "relaxing active" and that is a good description of what to expect from the holiday.
