This place has it all. I have been here four times and coming back for the fifth time November 2015. This location is where jungle meets ocean, sun, moon, healing foods, incredible yoga, great staff. ideal location, and amazing scenery which provides a great environment for yoga and meditation. I love it and can't say enough! You won't be sorry... More

I've visited and led Wellness and Yoga retreats at Blue Spirit every January for the past four years. The journey isn't too far from New York and other major cities, and yet it feels very remote. The facilities are top notch, with wonderful classrooms, a beautiful open air dining room and common areas overlooking the ocean. Hermitage rooms in the... More

Everything about Blue Spirit was fabulous - from the early morning wake up call from the Howler Monkey's to the cool evening breezes filling the yoga room while we chanted. The food was delicious, organic and mostly vegetarian. The staff were helpful. The massage therapists great. There are four yoga rooms and they all have a special feel to them.... More

Beautiful environment, lovely staff, awesome retreat center. We've come three times over New Years week to lead chanting and yoga retreats. Everyone has been sublime. In fact, they've gotten better and better it's completely healing resort. Highly recommended.

We have been to Blue Spirit for the past 5 years and the beauty of this sanctuary never ceases to amaze me. Every year the retreat center-hotel becomes more and more beautiful. New art, new installations, more plants sheltering you and more wild animals to discover. The facilities are incredibly confortable and natural. My family is returning for New Year's... More

Pura Vida is alive and well at this spa resort. It will make you live longer and better, but don't come here unless you are already in good shape! I'm staying two weeks; the first week is in an Eco Cottage, 300 or so stone steps from the beautiful main building where the dining and my morning retreat activities take... More

Our third time to Blue Spirit on yoga retreats. A delightful place to settle into yourself, energy and peace, gives time not to think and just be. Stayed in the huts at the bottom of the slope a few times to get that extra back to nature feeling, and showering outside :)

I led a retreat to Blue Spirit in January 2015. The grounds were luscious, the food was delicious, and the staff were super friendly and attentive. Blue Spirit has clearly discovered what it takes to provide the ideal setting for a retreat. We will be back next year.
