Meet the Sandhi Team

We are a family 

A house without love is not a home.
Its a huge difference between a building with furnitures and a home where there is hope and love, where you can explore the wonders of life armed with solid values.
Our family makes Sandhi House a home, with their inspiration, dedication and spirit of sharing good things together.
They sprinkle their magic, their energy and care in all the corners of Sandhi House.

Welcome hOHMe. We want your time here to be yours, allowing you to pause from your everyday life and re-treat yourself. Our family is here to provide for you, so you can create your perfect day filled with magical moments. 

Enjoy our daily yoga classes and treat yourself to a therapeutic massage by one of our specialists. Spend time in nature, try surfing or stand up paddle yoga. 

Take time to read a book or just sit quietly and listen to the sound of the ocean. This is a place for You to recharge, to grow, to invest in yourself.
