Anamaya is located on the cliffside above the Pacific Ocean in a beautiful converted home with several smaller rooms/buildings set around the property. Although about 30 people can be on the property at once, never do you feel crowded. The resort is designed to give maximum privacy and outdoor space to everyone, starting with the two amazing yoga decks overlooking... More

The website was accurate and amazing at giving us real insights into what to expect, but I could NEVER have been prepared for how this 1 wk would change my life forever. The beauty of the property and buildings amazing - attention to detail is evident everywhere. The staff are SO on the ball, it is easy to see they... More

From the moment I was welcomed at the resort to my departure the whole trip was exceptional. As a guy who hasn't done a lot of yoga and who is not in great shape I was worried that this would be a little to serious about the yoga, and the small size might be too intimate with the other guests....

Hello :) I stayed at Anamaya from February 28th to March 7th, 2015. It was magnificent. EVERYTHING was perfect. The rooms, the reception hall, the pools, the yoga decks, the environment... ALL WAS PERFECT. I left out 2 important mentions because they are worth the extra attention: #1) the staff: I felt so pampered, loved and cared for. Each person... More

I fell in love with the website and felt compelled to go there even though it was a little bit out of my normal travel budget. Let me just say it is totally worth every penny. From the moment I got there it was completely blown away and in awe of how someone could create such a beautiful space. The... More

I just returned from a one-week yoga retreat at Anamaya and I feel like my body and soul have been found again! Our yoga instructor was a local woman named Silivia Ericksson who teaches yoga at the local Motezuma Yoga studio. If you are not lucky enough to have Siliva make sure you make it to town for a class... More

I stayed at the resort in November and had a great time, the location, view and service is out of the world. We left relaxed and with a stronger yoga practice (our teacher, Lola was fab!). My only suggestion would be to do a survey before guests arrive to identify the level of yoga practice that they have and adapt... More

I stayed at Anamaya for a month for a Yoga Teacher Training. First off, the grounds and the views are great. But what really made the stay was the staff and their attention to detail. They listen to your needs and will adapt where feasible. They truly made the trip special!

I spent two weeks at Anamaya, and I loved everything about it. I have been to five other yoga retreats around the world, and Anamaya is my favorite. The location (both in nature and the facilities) is actually much prettier than all the beautiful photos. The food is gourmet (fresh, healthy, creatively presented) five times per day. The staff treats... More
