Menla Mountain retreat is nestled in the Catskills mountains at 1,500 feet above sea level and set on a 325-acre private nature reserve. This region of the Catskills is renowned for its unspoiled beauty, variety of wildlife, abundance of rushing streams and rivers, and ancient forested mountains. In addition to the healing nature of the property is also the 4,000-square-foot, two-story Mahasukha Spa. This Tibetan healing center features eleven treatment rooms, Finnish and far-infrared saunas, steam rooms, rain showers with jets, Tibetan herbal soaking tubs, an Ayurvedic room, a couples massage room, a two-person Jacuzzi tub, a relaxation room with a view of our garden, men’s and women’s locker rooms, and an outdoor pool.
