About The Ashram

The Ashram was founded more than 40 years ago by Swedish health and wellness pioneers Catharina Hedberg and Anne-Marie Bennström. From the very beginning, Cat and Anne-Marie had a vision to introduce healthy eating, physical exercise and a connection to nature in order to cleanse the body, still the mind and nourish the soul.  It was the first “boot camp” retreat with a simple but effective formula that has kept its essence throughout the years while still continually progressing to provide guests with a fun, challenging, and innovative  experience. Together, Cat and Anne-Marie created one of the most highly acclaimed and successful health getaways in the world where guests return time and time again.

WHAT'S IN A NAME

The Ashram means “A Place of Peace”.

We felt it was a name to live up to and therefore every aspect of The Ashram permeates that concept. The serene beautiful mountains that surrounds us. The beach with endless blue ocean and warm soft sand. Our fresh delicious organic food. You will sense the warm, welcoming feeling wherever you go on our property and, most importantly, you will experience our amazing staff. They all come from a place of a sincere heart and have a genuine willingness to embrace you with their love and care.

This peaceful energy is created by decades of a pure intent on providing a place for each guest to "stop the clock” for a moment and letting us take care of every need during the week with us.
