This is a lovely hotel. It's very relaxing and nourishing for the soul. The food is not always the tastiest (although usually it's great) but it is very good for you and my wife and I felt like different people afterwards. If you're worried about the vegan aspect, don't be, as you can order meat dishes too. The meditations were amazing. The pool is nice and big and the beach is lovely. The rooms are very clean and comfortable with a fantastic view. Overall a lovely, memorable experience. (The only thing I would say is that it's very expensive and the service just doesn't quite come up to scratch for that price - e.g., we waited almost an hour for eggs and toast one morning. This kind of thing didn't happen often but it shouldn't happen at all when you pay this much money.)

Absolutely loved our time at Palmaia - the food was incredible (as a usually non-veg/vegan it was a huge treat and has inspired my husband and I to reduce our meat intake because we never missed it), the staff were all really lovely, the room had a great view and the beach was fab. We also went to several of their activities and the spa and really enjoyed them. Perfect spot for our babymoon/honeymoon!

As a vegetarian, I found this resort to be a heaven-sent. The set of facilities here is very well thought through. The food is thoughtfully put together - delicious and healthy (and of course, instagrammable). The staff is really friendly. The resort itself is very clean and well taken care of. The suites are spacious, the bed super comfortable and the view is amazing. We had a great spa experience too. But my favorite part has to be the DJ spinning out chillout beats on the beach in the night - the Rituals of Sound. It is an experience that changes the way I wanna live my life. The only bad part that I'd want the hotel to improve - their Whatsapp based service with Nomadic Guides is not responsive and there's no clear owner of the experience. Despite the promise of being always available to help me, I never heard back from my nomadic guide (some general operator responds to you, and the response time can be several hours, and a couple of communications just got no response at all). That system doesn't work when you need it, and they really need to fix it.

One of the best hotels we have stayed at. All the staff was very friendly, the pools were very clean. I really love the nature feel of the hotel, you feel that you are so far away but are not. I really liked that it wasn't loud despite being a family friendly hotel. Definitely a great getaway, very relaxing.

The vegan menu and quality of every meal was the best I ever tasted. I have never seen my vegan wife eat so much! The staff was incredibly welcoming and friendly, great service on the beach from Israel, housekeeping made up our room every morning and turned our room down almost every night. Rediscovered the artist in me during an art class on the beach, learned how to breathe again during a breathwork class, got a wonderful tightness the next day from the Vinyasa flow class the day before, cabanas on the beach were beautiful, and our couples massage on the last day at our own spa temple was heavenly... a spot that we will tell all our friends about as it truly was the best wellness escape and first of its kind that I have ever visited. Absolutely 5 star! Going back in the spring! Peter M.
