Rules

Interest in holistic wellness preferred. As a place where people come to relax and cleanse away from their normal chaotic lives, we want to create a peaceful ambiance, where people can build their consciousness without distraction or undue toxicity. With this is mind, we don't allow drinking alcohol on site (except on special occasions), drugs are strictly prohibited and non smokers are strongly preferred. We are relaxed but not a party atmosphere - more meditative, to support the guests experience.
