Possible Extra Donations During Your Stay
There are some extra donations next to accommodation, see below. For some we mention that we prefer cash donations in Trinidad & Tobago dollars. Depending on your arrival time you could ask your driver from the airport to take you to an ATM, or you can ask someone to take you to an ATM while you are here. There are some ATM’s at the airport but they are known to often not work. Make sure when you have a foreign card, that its permission is set for payments in Central America.
Room Key Deposit: We ask you to make a deposit of 300 TTD when we give you your room key (or you can pay for this while paying for accommodation). This amount will be given back when your key is returned and your room is found back in original condition.
Airport Transport: There is an additional cost for transport to and from the airport (two-way) which is 600 TTD per person. Contact us for more information on arranging this.
Retreats/Workshops: We ask for a donation for all non-recurring retreats/workshops given at the Ashram, which is in addition to your accommodation donation. One can currently expect donations around 100 TTD to 200 TTD per morning or afternoon workshop, though higher donations could be asked for very specialized workshops.
Health Food Store / Gift Shop / Wellness Cafe: At the ashram we have a small health food store where you can buy drinks, spring water, snacks, toothpaste, laundry detergent and much more. We also have a gift shop where you can purchase books, CD’s and DVD’s, clothing, jewelry, religious items and more. In our Wellness Cafe you can buy snacks and light meals after Healing Circles and Satsangs and special breakfasts on Sundays. We prefer cash donations in Trinidad dollars in these shops and the cafe.
Wellness Treatments: We offer many different wellness treatments in our Wellness centre, ranging from reflexology and Reiki to health consulations, coaching, Swedish massage, Thai yoga massage, all kinds of Ayurvedic treatments and more. Donations are generally between 200 TTD to 550 TTD per session. For some occasions we also offer mini-treatments at reduced donations. Our Wellness centre prefers cash donations in Trinidad & Tobago dollars.
