Six of us stayed at the beautiful, luxurious and comfortable Manu Villas the second week of March. The perfect place for 3 close couple friends (55y - 65y) to relax, cook and eat together, explore nearby areas/beaches and enjoy spectacular sunsets every night while floating and drinking pina coladas in the perfect infinity pool overlooking the ocean. Manu Villas, the... More

We stayed at Manu PooToo Treehouse for the second half of our Costa Rican honeymoon. We are an active couple, 2nd marriage, 46 & 51yrs old. The tree house was spectacular in every way. It was a good little hike up to the home after a 15 minute drive up the mountain (which is very steep and not all paved)... More

I've been traveling to Costa Rica these last few years leading meditation and yoga retreats. By far, of all the places we've taught this is the most peaceful, beautiful and secluded mountain top ocean view retreat. Our meditations were pristine, both morning and night and the Hatha Yoga sessions were divinely inspired. The jungle Yoga Pavillion made an excellent space... More

If you are looking for an amazing location for a yoga retreat with an intimate setting and unparalleled amenities, this is it. As a yoga teacher who leads retreats annually, I found Manu Villas & Spa to be a hidden gem and a place I'll return to regularly for retreats! The staff (so friendly and supportive) feels like family and... More

I spent a week at Manu Resort with a yoga/meditation group. The owner is easy to work with. The buildings are really beautiful with such attention to detail, especially in the woodwork. The view from the house toward the Pacific ocean is really lovely. The weather was comfortable 80-ish degrees F. The location is about 15-20 minute drive into Dominical,... More

My wife and I just got home from one of the most divine vacations we've ever enjoyed! Hatha yoga and meditation every day at the Manu Villas was a deep dive into ourselves in a supremely luxurious location. The buildings are set around a small peak in the jungle just north of Dominical, Costa Rica's surfing capital. They are connected... More

Our group, 3 couples in our 50’s & 60’s, stayed in Bosque en el Cielo villa in September. Lynne, the owner, was so easy to work with and always responded promptly to our emails and answered all our endless questions. We booked online and paid through VRBO, and all was handled effortlessly and efficiently. We arrived over an hour late... More

Manu Villa sits on top of the clouds! It is an adventure to get to the Pacific Coast from San José but it is worth every bump in the road. There are great local tours nearby, snorkeling, a surf lessons or zip line at the Hacienda Baru but once you arrive at the Villa you do not have to leave.... More

Alex and Grace were fantastic hosts. We just returned a week ago and couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. While the homes are in Costa Rica, it truly feels like your in a Bali resort with jungles all around the look and feel of teak. I had an initial concern about being too close to other villas, but...

My husband and I spent 5 nights here on our honeymoon in July. It was the most perfect place to get away from civilization, yet still enjoy some adventure. The area was gorgeous and the accommodations were perfect. Grace is a fantastic cook and great host. They are nearby enough to help, yet give you privacy as well. I highly... More
