I returned home last week after spending 9 wonderful nights at this beautiful resort. This was my first time to a yoga retreat and I wasn't really sure what to expect but this place totally exceeded my expectations on every level.
I really enjoyed getting back in touch with nature.The grounds are very well maintained and simply gorgeous with beautiful flowering plants full of hummingbirds and fruitbearing trees loaded with papayas, coconuts, mangoes and citrus all along the walkways. It is the perfect setting to relax, unplug and rejuvenate.
The food was healthy and delicious and served buffet style in the Dining Hall, the spa treatments were outstanding to say the least, my room was spacious with an amazing view of San Jose and kept spotless by the housekeeping staff. The instructors in the yoga classes were second to none.
I could go on and on but what really makes this place so special is that every single member of the staff is genuinely kind, caring, nurturing and completely dedicated to ensuring that every guest gets the most out of the experience and that is why I can't wait to go back.
