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

My sister and I have been hosting yoga retreats together for the last 6 years... the last 3 of which we brought our group to Samsati. Samasati is like our home away from home. Every year we meet the same familiar faces from the year prior, so it feels family esque:) It is in the jungle, though still feels like... More

The staff at samasiti responded immediately when I placed a call two days before the retreat started! They made arrangements for transfer from San Jose. When I arrived at the reception desk I was greeted by Stephanie, the retreat director and yoga instructor. I have practiced yoga for over 10 years, have been to other retreats in costa rica, and...

We enjoyed everything about Samasati. Neither of us are vegetarians or yoga practitioners, but we both enjoy trying new things. The yoga kicked our butts - but we needed it. The food was awesome, didn't miss the meat. But if you do have a hankering for meat, you can eat in the restaurants in town and get your fix. Samasati... More

I spent a week at Samasati and had the most AHH-mazing experience! The resort is located in the middle of a lush rain forest with breath taking views and incredibly diverse wildlife. Where else in the world will you be able to HEAR the sunrise and sunset (thanks to the howler monkeys!)? The most beautiful beaches are only a few... More

Feel at home in the Rain Forest! Samasati Resort and the amazing staff made my experience in Costa Rica one I'll never forget. I will definitely be back to visit; I'm even considering buying a lot a building a home inside this tropical retreat.
