Relax & Rejuvenate

Located by a creek and shrouded by Costa Rica’s dense tropical forest, our spacious al-fresco Yoga Deck prompts full communion with nature. Fragrant earth, billowing wind, fluttering candles and streaming water fully engage the senses and enliven the spirit.

Private yoga classes are available but must be pre-scheduled with the reservations department. Yoga instructors are encouraged to organize their own groups, and yoga enthusiasts can ask us to create a fully customized getaway for their group.
