Let me get some basics out of the way. Room...we stayed in large, well designed, private and clean cabin. It had an outdoor shower where I get in some great bird photos. Food...I happen to really like vegetarian food and the selection was great. I loved the natural teas. Building...a truly well designed space for eating, sleeping and taking classes.... More

The location is a mixed bag. As other reviewers have said, it's isolated which is great if you like that sort of thing. Otherwise you might feel stir crazy. The food was pretty good. The tea selection was VERY bad. We were surprised that at an eco-friendly yoga kind of place, the had almost no good tea. No chamomile, no... More

Although I agree with the many positive comments made by other reviewers, I was unable to get more than 3 or 4 hours of sleep each night because of barking dogs, crowing roosters, and howling monkeys. I left Blue Spirit with chest pains and heart palpitations because of lack of sleep. I could not even nap during the day because... More

Best beach book I have ever lived. Will return soon to actually walk the pristine beach 700 yards from facility. Be prepared to shed pollutants and brace for re-entry because spending one or two weeks without chemicals, surrounded by hearts and smiles will make returning to the US of the A's challenging. Room choices in the main lodge matter not... More

General Summary: Blue Spirit retreat center can be the perfect holiday for the right kind of traveler. Please note we are pleased with the overall experience, we just realized this center is not the ideal vacation for us. Positives: - Grounds/Center is breath-taking and immaculately kept with special areas like the Sky-top room and hidden nooks throughout the grounds -... More

On that first day, when I walked into the Sky Hall the top floor of Blue Spirit's main building, I was awestruck. Overlooking the dense greenery of the forest with the breeze rushing to greet me through the opened doors of floor to ceiling glass, I felt as if I could drift across and out along the beach, sailing the...

This resort was one of the best places I've ever experienced. They give a totally different meaning to service and relaxation. The entire staff was incredible. I've worked in hospitality for over 12 years for Marriott & Starwood and can hands down say Blue Spirit was by far one of the best ever. The rooms and views were breath taking,... More

Everytime I think of the time I've spent at Blue Spirit I smile and can't wait for the next yoga retreat there. From the time we arrive to the time we depart I feel inspired and nourished. We practice yoga in the most amazing space I've ever done a warrior II in overlooking ocean, mountains, bays, wildlife... The meals are... More
