About this listing
Nestled in magical Tepoztlan, Avalon is a tranquil oasis of enchanting beauty: lush gardens, walking paths, lotus ponds, yoga hall and a stunning view of the mystical mountains. NOTICE: We are currently expanding! We are building two more cabins in our property, so you may encounter noise generated with building, ask for details with hosts.
Satori house is exquisitely designed and built by expert craftsmen and artisans in the Japanese style where simplicity, beauty, quality, and comfort are seamlessly integrated. The floors and ceiling beams are of natural wood with sliding rice paper doors that separate the bedroom and bathroom from the main lounge/kitchen area. A glass walled mini-zen garden with an exterior fountain separates the bedroom from the bathroom which boasts a handmade square wooden bath and sink as well as a stone and glass shower. The kitchenette has a small fridge with gas burner to heat water for the organic tea or coffee that is provided. It is important to know the burner is small and appropriate just for heating water, not for cooking.
The bedroom has a very comfortable double bed with a magnificent view of Tepozteco through the large glass doors of the house. Screens, sun blocking blinds and a anti-mosquito UV light keeps the morning sun and mosquitoes away.
Avalon Sanctuary invites couples and singles to deepen their relationship with nature, with their own hearts and their connection with their partner. Take quiet walks along the wooded paths, enjoy your morning smoothie or coffee by the lotus ponds, cuddle in the shade of one of several hammocks nestled under an umbrella of leafy vines, get an Ayurvedic massage or Reiki Session or take a yoga class in Ananda hall. This hidden sanctuary is like being in your own private zen garden you would never guess that you are minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Tepoztlan's famed food and artisan market, or from the hiking trails and ancient wonders of Tepozteco.
Between 8:30 and 11:00am a wholesome breakfast of smoothies, fresh local fruit, artisanal bread, homemade granola, yogurt and jam is provided at the common terrace of the main house.

Ayurvedic massage and Energetic Sessions such as Reiki or Harmonyum Healing are available at additional cost. Kalki and Cristina are also advanced trantric practitioners and guides in the path of Conscious Living and loving so if you're seeking reconnection with your partner or healing in that regard let us know in advance, as your stay could be easily transformed into a healing or expanding experience.
