Third Night Free At Kripalu

The Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Stockbridge, Mass., is offering a third night free to guests who book two nights in its R&R pogram, Sunday through Thursday, through Jan. 29.

Kripalu offers a wonderful and peaceful experience, full of yoga, delicious organic food and two whacking  huge whirlpools — one for women and one for men. (Bathing suit optional.)

It’s not luxurious and it’s not as cheap as it used to be, but I find it supremely relaxing. Fancy spa treatments wear off in hours but Kripalu gets in your head.

The lowest rates are for shared dormitory rooms, at $155 a night. So a single person would be looking at $310 for three nights, all food and yoga programs included. It’s certainly not a bad deal.

In fact, Kripalu may present a better bargain for singles than for couples. It’s one of the few places where there’s no real single supplement unless you insist on a private room, which is rather pricey. Massage treatments are also on the expensive side, but are extremely good.

Also, there’s free Wi-Fi in the cafe, where I’m sitting right now.

Of course this kind of experience is not for everyone, but if you think you might enjoy it, check out the blog entry I wrote about my last visit.

    Let me see if I have this straight. You are at Kripalu to chillax so you will be stress free for your Hawaii vacation? You are my idol.

      Well, yes. It’s sort of a pre-vacation. I’m trying to figure out if I have the right temperament to be wealthy. If it turns out that I do, I will then have to figure out how to get wealthy.

    My favorite travel blog reports there’s an outrageous cruise bargain on Celebrity about the time the Hawaii trip is winding down. Would make a great way to decompress after that long flight back from Honolulu, no?
