I attended a yoga teacher training at Ahki and was very impressed by their accommodations. I've stayed in many places throughout Costa Rica, and Ahki is definitely near the top of my list. Nestled in the mountains, you're surrounded by nature and quiet (when the monkeys aren't chatting). The yoga shala has a panoramic view of the property, including a... More

I unfortunately stayed at Ahki for Marianne Wells Yoga Teacher training in Nosaros. I was not happy with the accommodations. The owner seemed very unorganized upon arrival. The rooms were infested with bugs, our fan barely worked and you couldn't put toilet paper in the toilet. The water was either really cold or really hot. They didn't bother to clean... More

I stayed at Ahki for a week during a wonderful yoga retreat and it was definitely magical. Ahki is wonderfully located out of the way from the hustle of the down town area. It is only 20 minutes to shopping and the beaches though. There were 13 of us on the retreat and the space was fantastic. There is plenty... More

Charming place and owners/operators were gracious and responsive. But there are some things that require attention. I was part of a retreat group of about 16 and the space felt cramped - from the lounge (which was the only common/free space to be) and dining area, to the pool and then the yoga room. Accommodations are a hiking distance from... More

After planning a retreat here for many months prior to last week, our experience each step of the way was easy and collaborative. My communications with Karen were so helpful and clear and we really worked together to plan what turned out to be a wonderful retreat. This place is really perfect. There is nothing that it lacks, no detail... More

Such a calming and rejuvenating place to stay! I was part of one of the first yoga retreats here and it was incredible. A very relaxing place where you feel like you can just unplug.

During my journey into the beautiful and exotic Costa Rica I was given the opportunity of staying at Ahki with the warm and open-hearted owners, Karen and Greg. This wonderful couple opened their home and retreat sanctuary to me in between a transition period of my journey, and my life. The energy that encompasses Ahki embraces oneself from all angles...

An extraordinary place for a retreat...for healing the mind and soul; a well kept secret in Nosara Costa Rica. The place itself is amazing and Karen and Greg - the creators of this space - make it even better.
