If you have the opportunity to visit Blue Spirit, you simply must! The grounds are beautiful. You can watch the howler monkeys and other beautiful creatures all around the property. It is so lush and green! The food is amazing. I really wish they offered a cookbook as I would have definitely purchased it. There are so many choices at... More

This was a very good experience, the hermitage rooms were small but very nice and just the right space for one person. The no a/c in room was not a big deal at all and this is in August! To have the howler monkeys come through outside your room in the mornings was the special treat, they were my alarm... More

My husband and I had the wonderful opportunity to participate in a retreat called In the Light Of Love with Deva Premal, Miten and Manose at Blue Spirit in March. The accommodations exceeded our expectations. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the staff is very welcoming and friendly. All the meals were included and were vegetarian. Twice that week, fresh...

I went to Blue Sprit for a woman’s spiritual retreat. What a lovely place. I fell in love with Blue Spirit the first day. The food is vegetarian and fish. Food is very good healthy and organic. In the morning, meditation, yoga or tai-chi. Later one attends the workshop. The gardens are lush. Hearing and seeing the howler monkeys is... More

I stayed in one of the Nature Suites and really enjoyed the privacy, the outdoor shower, and the surrounding nature setting. Food at the resort was vegetarian and flavorful. Wish they would sell a recipe book. View from the yoga studio was stunning!!! The massage studios can be a bit noisy during meal time when there are big groups in... More
