Mouth-watering organic food fresh from the farm...

Exquisite Ayurvedic culinary delights... Crafted by head chef Tess Rosenbush from top quality, locally sourced, ethically produced organic foods and freshly picked herbs, veggies, and fruits from the vast organic garden. Tess and her team keep ayurvedic guidelines and principles of food combining in the preparation of all meals for optimal health and digestion.

Organic lassis and spicy homemade chai... Made with love using Samata's own garden-grown ginger and raw organic milk from their own grass fed cow. This creamy milk is also used to make home-made organic butter, paneer, ghee, yogurt and sour cream. All Samata's eggs come from their own well-loved, scrap fed and organically raised hens.

Holistic and Ayurvedic treatments with world-class therapists...

Ayurvedic, Chinese, and Tibetan medicines and therapies... as well as a full range of bodywork and massage and leading practitioners. Acupuncture, TCM, cupping, moxibustion, TTM, Shirodhara, Svedana and Karma Chikitsa are amongst the treatments available at the Alternative Medical Treatment And Rejuvenation Center as well as Vedic Astrology. International physicians offer a wide variety of therapies and expert guidance as well as an extensive herbal pharmacy for support regarding specific health issues or nourishing your life in general.

The ancient medicinal lineages represented at Samata are based on a deeply holistic view of life and health. This ideal, called ‘swastya’ in Ayurveda, is the discovery of the unique nature of a person’s body, mind, and spirit. In Sanskrit, ‘Samata’ means the state of equilibrium and balance. The core intention of the on-site healing center is to support you in realizing your innate Samata.
