This place is like NO other place on earth. You get the chills the minute you enter the gates. The gardens mesmerize you with their scents, colors, and shapes and the chakra gardens embrace every one of your senses. The rooms are immaculate and spacious with amazing views. The staff is delightful and full of passion. The massage therapists are the best I have EVER had!! The most touching part however is Carol the owner who has built this gem in the hills of Peru from rubble. She has also dedicated much of her success to helping local children attend school and actually build a school. There are no words to describe what this one woman has done to change the lives of so many. I am so inspired I plan to help!!! HIGHLY encourage you to visit the school and meet the cherubs who attend. They are taught skills so that begging is not their way of life. They walk for hours in the cold to get there! It will change your life to meet these wonderful children!!! It changed mine!! This is a place that will forever remain etched in your heart and soul. It holds the secret to life...
