I chose Navutu Dreams in Siem Reap for a yoga and wellness retreat. My expectations were fully met: from the friendly staff and beautiful grounds, to the clean room and delicious traditional food. I was most impressed with the yoga/ meditation teachers and spiritual advisors who led the yoga and wellness program. They were knowledgeable, personable and very helpful. Everything was well thought of and well organized. The resort’s traditional massage offerings are also exceptional. I would happily return for another visit to Navutu Dreams and architecturally breathtaking Siem Reap.

I normally visit a yoga retreat in Thailand but I wanted to try something different this year so found Navutu online. When I arrived, I thought it would be ten days of yoga and spa treatments and some time to visit the temples nearby. What I got was something much deeper than that. Louise tailored my stay to suit me – we met on the first evening to discuss my wellness programme and it involved so much more than physical treatments and yoga. I have never done any holistic healing before but I opened my mind to the possibilities and what I got was incredible. Through breathing, meditation and yoga practice, as well as spiritual healing and using Louise’s expertise, I gained so much more than physical relaxation, I felt mentally relaxed too. Louise taught me some excellent practices that I have brought home to the UK to practice daily which is already helping me cope with the demands of everyday modern life. I would thoroughly recommend Navutu and particularly Louise’s wellness programmes.
