Echo Valley Ranch & Spa

Price: from $570
Morning on the five-star ranch begins with Thai yoga. You decide for yourself how to spend the day further: digital-free weekend program includes horseback riding, bicycle tours, hiking, fishing, and spa treatments. Of course, there will be no TVs, Wi-Fi and telephones there – satellite communication at the hotel will be disconnected for three days.
At first, the owners didn’t plan to make a hotel from the former farm: there’s still no conditional reception, no porter, no marble lobby, and the staff is one big family. The guests of the ranch and the hosts dine at the same table and share their impressions of the new day.
The total area of the ranch is nearly 650 square meters and it’s decorated with land art by Michael Blackstock in the style of Indian ethnicity.
