Highs + Lows

  • The whole place is truly transportive and inviting. It feels like nowhere you've ever been, and home at the same time.

  • The service is subtle but strong. The staff knows exactly when to appear and when to slip away.

  • Sunday Morning Yoga is held around 8:15am, a bit earlier than someone in a blissfully relaxed state might want to hit the mat.
