I did the aerial retreat with beautiful and talented Ana Prada at Anamaya. I have been back in the states for four days now, and I am still missing the place and the friends I made there like a homesick puppy. The entire staff are such joyful, calm and warm hearted people! I had a great time and left so... More

Coming to Anamaya was my first time travelling abroad on my own. Needless to say, I was nervous as to what to expect. From the minute that I stepped foot into the grand, beautiful, welcoming resort, it felt like home. The staff treats you like family--actually, better than family. They make sure to go above and beyond to treat you... More

Anamaya - thank you so much for having this vision and sharing it with the entire world. My adventure to Anamaya will be one of my most memorable experiences I have ever had in my entire life and I am grateful. I have met so many inspiring and talented individuals that colorfully shine like gods and goddesses filled with unconditional... More

I was a solo traveller, and I wanted a peaceful retreat where I can practise yoga, zip line and hike. I did a fair bit of research as to where I should go in Costa Rica and opted for Montezuma and Anamaya solely on the reviews on trip advisor, the fact that I was a solo person, safety and from...

Anamaya is such a beautiful place from the stunning details of the linens, lighting and furniture to the engaging wildlife and nature! I loved this resort for so many reasons but to sum it up, it felt like I was visiting family in their gorgeous private home. The food was so delicious that it was hard to believe it could... More

I went to Anamaya on a last minute getaway. I decided to take a solo trip and do the yoga retreat and get in as much relaxation and pleasure in one week as possible. I came to the right place. I'll never forget how I giggled with excitement the moment that I stepped foot into the main room and looked... More

From the minute I walked into the main house I went into deep relaxation mode. We ( two other guests who I shared a cab ride with from the Tambor landing strip) were greeted at the front door by Joseph, one of the owners. I had spoken to him by phone a few times prior to my trip and he... More

My husband and I visited Anamaya for our honeymoon this past March and we were thrilled. The resort is just stunning. It had the perfect combination of relaxation, friendliness and tranquility we were seeking. We did not want to go to a typical resort with lots of people and this place was cozy. We got to know all the guests... More

One of the most beautiful places we ever stayed. There's bugs, but you really don't even notice. The views were breathtaking, the food was excellent and the whole thing was really just surreal. It's a very very unique setting in which you get to know the cook and the other guests very well. The pool is beautiful. We never got... More

Anamaya is a great welcoming place to wind down and get away from it all. Nestled in the dry forest, yet minutes away from the "town" of Montezuma. Adventure is close at hand, or you can lay in a hammock and read your book all day - either way, you will be well cared for. The staff at Anamaya wants... More
