Danyasa is truly one of a kind! Nestled on the main road in Dominical (right behind their Bamboutique storefront) it's conveniently located and easy to find upon arrival (although, the resort is does a great job of remaining totally private and secluded) Each guest room is a shipping container-turned-bedroom (with it's own name, we stayed in Ganesh); each fully equipped...

I learned so much from them and consider them true friends, and hope to return soon. The rooms they offer to guests are cozy, clean,... More

I stayed here for nearly a week in July of 2013, and my memories of this tranquil place situated in the quiet town of Domincal make my heart happy. Even if you are not staying at their eco-retreat (now called Danyasa), taking a class in the studio (Bamboo YogaPlay) is an experience you won't forget. The studio can accommodate a... More
