The experience

  • Find serenity with a walk along our enchanted pathways as you  breathe in pure jungle air and commune with the tropical birds and  troops of monkeys promenading in the trees. 
  • Join our daily morning yoga practices designed to rebalance your  nervous system while cultivating vital energy, strength, and stamina.  
  • Soak up warm tropical sun rays and the nourishment of the sea, while  you explore our pristine, privately accessed beach or float in our  natural tide pools.  
  • Immerse yourself in the cool waters of our many nearby magical  waterfalls.
  • Let the vast Pacific ocean views blow the doors of your heart open  and reconnect with your child-like joy when you spot a whale or  make other mystical wildlife encounters. 
  • Give your body a reset with fresh, power-packed, locally sourced and  well-balanced foods, while we sit together family style, commune  and connect with each other. 
  • Wind down with sunset meditation, evening chants and fire circle.  Stargaze from the deck and contemplate the immenseness of our  cosmos. 
  • Retire to your luxury ocean front villa and allow the sounds of the ocean and the jungle to lull you into a deep and restorative sleep.
