Kripalu Accommodations verses Hampton Terrace, a Lenox Inn


Kripalu is considered one of the premier yoga retreats in the world. Its programs attract thousands to the Berkshires. Not well known is the fact that their accommodations are spartan…..the majority of their rooms are dormitory style, holding 6-22 people with bathrooms at the end of the hall. They do have a limited number of private, or semi-private options at a price much higher than staying in a local inn.

We frequently host Kripalu program participants at Hampton Terrace in Lenox. To stay beyond Kripalu, you would pay a $50 guest fee, which includes use of all Kripalu facilities including meals. Then you would pay for the program and services you use. At Hampton Terrace, mention our Kripalu Special, and we will give you a king or queen room with fireplace and Jacuzzi, daily housekeeping, private bath……for $150/night, 20% off our normal off-season rate (slighly higher on weekends). At this discount, we are virtually paying your daily Kripalu fee and your meals.

We are located one mile from Kripalu….about a 2 minute drive.

This is $150 per room…..not $150 per person. Compare that to the cost for dormitory, semi-private, or private options at Kripalu…..and you would choose a highly rated local inn EVERY time. Share a room, and the difference is profound.

Room prices are not obvious on the Kripalu website. Take the overall charge….deduct the cost of the program you are attending, which is listed separately, then deduct $50/day for the number of nights you will be paying the daily…and then the balance is what you are paying for your room. Compare that number to us at $150/night. We know you will be checking with us for availability: 800-203-0656 (add $15/night for weekends) (not available July, August and October).
