After I returned from Samasati Nature Retreat, everyone I've told about the trip wants to go, or wishes they could go. I went there for a seven day yoga retreat (ended up staying ten days). There was no internet, no television, no phone, yoga twice a day, vegetarian food grown on property, and hiking trails through the rainforest that I... More

Have stayed at Samasati twice and my whole family loved it. Will definitely be back. It feels like our home away from home. You can't get any closer to the rainforest than this. Be aware this is a nature retreat, NOT a resort. Come here if you want to unplug, enjoy the surroundings, relax, and explore the rainforest, not if... More

....magical, breathtaking, a vibrant kaleidoscope of fauna and flora! The tiny neon orange frogs were my favorite little critters, the howler monkeys were everywhere but you couldn’t see them, they would wake you every morning at 6am with a chorus of moans, sometimes the sounds came from the south, sometimes from the north. The extraordinary species of orchids were stunning,... More

Rustic luxury may sound like an oxymoron, but the moment you step into this space, you will understand fully. Surrounded by gorgeous, lush jungle filled with beautiful animals in their native habitat, this house has an amazing ocean view to boot. Sitting high atop a tree directly off the expansive deck was our welcoming committee – a sloth – which... More

I am a yoga teacher and the first time stayed i 2006 with a large group of students. We had a blast and were very well taken care of. I have returned 4 more times, 3 with groups and once with just my husband and I. It feels like home, except for they have way better food, view, lodgings and... More

Where do we start !!! It was a unforgettable vacation. We rented a 4x4 vehicle in San Jose.. It was necessary to have a 4x4 to get in and out of this resort although no vehicle is necessary as they have a free daily shuttle to the town The yoga classes were incredible. Classes were at 6.30 a.m. and 5:00... More

My mom and I had the pleasure of staying at Samasati in March of this year. Arriving to samasati we were both extremely exhausted from life and travel. We walked into the home we were staying in and it was beautifully decorated with flowers from the grounds and the towels were folded like swans. I love little things like this.... More

For anyone who loves nature & all that it brings, I recommend Samasati. It's the perfect spot for a yoga or meditation retreat, or a bird-watching expedition. First of all, I would highly recommend making shuttle bus arrangements, in advance, between San Jose & Samasati, which are 4 hours apart. Also, be sure to allow 2 hours between arrival at... More
