What a delightful, charming place. The view, with an infinity pool perched on a cliff overlooking the ocean, will take your breath away. For this mostly-vegetarian, the meals were a treat - fresh, delicious, beautiful to look at, plentiful. Staff was friendly and accomodating. I thoroughly enjoyed the twice-daily yoga classes with guest teacher April, with howler monkeys and iguanas... More

I had the pleasure of being a guest teacher at the exotic Anamaya and I have to tell you that I am already planning to go back! From the moment you walk through the doors until the time you leave you are treated like family. The staff and the resident kitty, Onyx, really care about your well being and your... More

I don't think there's a place as magical as Anamaya. I travelled on my first solo trip here and was feeling a little nervous but from the moment I arrived I was greeted with a delicious smoothie and open arms. Everyone was just amazing....staff, travelers....the place is gorgeous! Delicious food and probably the healthiest I've eaten in my life! Lots... More

Amamaya is ONE of a kind. No words can truly explain the magic that comes from Montezuma! This place changed my life forever and I can not thank Anamaya enough for guiding me thru meditation, yoga, healthy eating and experiencing nature at its most beautiful extent! I never dreamed it could be that good. EVER. It was a truly mystical... More

I was looking for a special place where I could practice some Yoga with other inspiring people in a beautiful environment. And I exactly found that special place in Anamaya, Montezuma, Costa Rica. After a warm welcome from the receptionist I was given an awesome Smoothie and shown the generous and very clean room, called "Temple". I had a private... More

I had been searching for months trying to find a yoga retreat somewhere exotic that really resonated with me. Somehow I found Anamaya's website and knew that it was exactly where I needed to go. I flew into SJO and had a shuttle from Anamaya pick me up and bring me to the resort. I was a little nervous to... More

I found it very expensive for what you got. Only clean the room once a week, if that. Food is good for the first 3 days, then gets terribly boring. They act like they will follow your allergy concerns, but don't. Not enough yoga. Don't buy a activity or relaxation package, only pay for the room. If you calculate it... More

Service, people, rooms, food, cleanliness, grounds, views.... georgeous & excellent. You will not be disappointed with anything. I was seriously injured during surf, no fault to anyone or mother nature... just a fluke... and I was treated better than in the states.

A little piece of paradise nestled high above the Montezuma Beach ocean coast. Fabulous food, amazing staff made for an exciting & adventurous week. The food is grown locally & prepared by chefs. Exquisite! Opportunities for surfing, zip-lining, horseback riding.
