I came here on a women's yoga and meditation retreat for a week in May 2014 and it was a truly special experience. The staff are amazing and you are greeted with smiles, cold aqua fresca and cooling ocean breezes. The food is plentiful, delicious and incredibly fresh, prepared by the highly talented and professional chef, Abram. Every detail of the facility has been consciously formed out of natural resources - stone, earth, wood, leather - and it's all beautiful and done with an artist's attention to detail. It is a true retreat, miles of empty coastline (except for your occasional local fisherman throwing his nets in the surf, which makes it even more picturesque), there are no intrusions into your experience, just waking up each day and being there. I highly recommend it for anyone needing to get away from the craziness of our modern busy lifestyles. Be prepared to leave your worries at home and embrace the people and environment around you.
