Laughing Buddha Retreat Centre Testimonial
To Whom It May Concern:
I have been conducting residential music retreats in Australia for the last 14 years. I have used four venues during this time, including Ballina Beach Village.
My experience at this venue has been very positive, chiefly due to the total dedication of the owners and staff. When participants have put aside their hard-earned funds, and made time in their busy lives to attend a retreat, the care and attention they receive at a venue can make or break the experience.
Rikki Grinberg and her staff have always been 100% willing and able to accommodate the often unpredictable needs that arise. As an organizer, I know that at BBV, solutions will be found, and the participants will have their needs met.
I have recently booked in the Ecstatic Chant & Devotional Singing Retreat with Deva Premal & Miten into this venue for 2014 with full confidence and excitement.
