Venue HighlightsHarmony Dawn provides tranquil, nurturing, harmonious accommodation and highly acclaimed cuisine to compatible guest groups of between 10 and 22. We also conduct our own HD in-house workshops and retreats on meditation, Tai Chi Chuan, Qigong and Yin-Yang cuisine through which we try to help guests establish or consolidate their own mind-body health practice. We believe it is important to balance one’s internal and external environments since they are interconnected.
