While we welcome and encourage families to Anahata, we need to emphasise that children are the sole responsibility of their accompanying adult.
We are only able to provide internet access for essential communications e.g. booking flights and other crucial travel arrangements. Casual internet access for general e-mail and web browsing is unavailable due to our reliance on and limited supply of solar power. We have a satellite broadband connection that is quite power hungry!

Eat to live, don't live to eat.
Food nourishes us and provides our physical body with the energy it needs to go about its daily activities. All meals at Anahata are vegetarian - simple, nutritious & satisfying. Much of our organic food is sourced from local growers or picked fresh from our garden, which is developed along permaculture design principles.
We provide 3 Vegetarian meals per day:
Breakfast: a light meal to break the fast from the previous night.
Lunch: the main meal of the day, when our digestive fires are the strongest.
Dinner: a light meal to ensure that all food is completely digested before going to sleep.
The water at Anahata is from a pure mountain spring and is absolutely safe to drink.
The kitchen is not to be used for personal cooking. If you have medically related food requirements or allergies, please inform on booking.
Food is not allowed in the bedrooms. We can cater to vegan and gluten free requirements, for other required speciality foods or snacks you may wish to bring your own supply. Please confirm when booking if in doubt.
