Ayurvedic Meals


 

Our food is prepared for all doshas. Each guest will receive the same meal, but in a neutral way, in order to assure the balance of all doshas. From time to time we also serve meals with a little Western taste to have a little variety. We are happy to adjust your meal, according to your special needs, whether you are intolerant to anything, or vegetarian, vegan or follow a gluten free or dairy free diet. Just let us know and we are more than happy to prepare individual meals for you. You won’t find shrimp, crab, tuna, shellfish or pineapple in our meals as they are aggravating some of the doshas. 

At our sister resort Spirit of life, we grow our herbs and vegetables on our own farm. Therefore we ensure the use of organic vegetables, as we are not using any fertilizers. The ingredients such as vegetables (the once we cannot grow in our farm), herbs and fruits are bought fresh every day from farms or selected organic traders.
