Just Say ‘Om’Hotels & Resorts, Kenya, Lost Girls RTW Adventure, Spa & Beauty, Spiritual Travel — By Holly C on December 15, 2006 at 3:10 pm
The Lost Girls found a secret hideaway in Diani Beach on the coast of Kenya: Shaanti Holistic Health Resort and Retreat. Set on a white sand beach overlooking the Indian Ocean, it’s an oasis of calm.
Yoga and meditation classes are offered daily on an outdoor platform, Ayurvedic facials and massages are given in thatched-roofed huts, and a nutritionist on staff can cater the vegetarian meals to your personal needs. It’s the perfect spot to go to detox, take a break from a fast-paced schedule or for a romantic retreat (you’ll have the beach almost all to yourself).
No shirt? No shoes? No problem! The vibe is so laidback that you can dine in the tree house-like restaurant in just your bathrobe and slippers. Plus, there’s no specific check out time. Though the staff doesn’t rush you, we stayed until almost 7 p.m. on our last day and I think they started to wonder if we were moving in. We didn’t want to leave!
Check it out for yourself at www.shaantihhr.com; doubles start at $250 and include all meals, yoga and meditation classes.
