We recently stayed at Ahki for 3 nights and had what was probably the most restful and relaxing time we had on a vacation. The retreat is located on the hills above Playa Garza and Guiones in a very quiet and secluded setting. The beauty of the retreat and the surrounding area is just stunning. Pros - Beautiful buildings and... More

I had the pleasure of staying at Ahki last July while on a reconnaissance mission in search for a beautiful venue for yoga teacher trainings. My first impression upon arrival was that the space was very balanced, visually soothing yet stunning in it's simple elegance. The ambience is fabulous. The pool and adjoining gazebos are instantly both calming and inviting.... More

This place is a "Sanctuary for the Soul". Upon entering the property you will be greeted with the serene sounds of nature, and meditative music. We felt so relaxed after our 3 hour journey from San Jose. We enjoyed both the views and the FABULOUS retreat Karen and Greg have created. This should be a destination for anyone traveling to...

The owners, Greg and Karen Heil, are friendly, welcoming, entertaining, and just downright wonderful people! I love them, Ahki, and everything they have created together in the spectacular Nicoya Peninsula of Costa Rica. Ahki is one of the most unique and beautiful resorts I have ever visited, and as a Yoga instructor, I am in love with the amazing energy... More

Ahki is truly a sanctuary. The views are breathtaking and serene, I don’t know another place like it where every detail has been carefully considered creating a warm and welcoming retreat; perfect for relaxing and spiritual rejuvination! The town of Delicias, a few minutes away, adds to the charm of the area. Not far from the retreat center we trekked... More

Swinging in the hammock by the infinity pool at AHKI while viewing the surrounding mountains was nothing short of heavenly. Karen and Greg made our stay incredible with great care, wonderful meals, lots of advice on local sights, and wonderful accommodations. Karen's yoga classes in the rooftop studio united your soul with the spirit of nature. Trees, birds, mountains, and... More

This was my first visit to Ahki, and my first visit to Costa Rica as well. Of course, there are many places to experience nature in Costa Rica, but I believe what makes AHKi so unique is that it is immersed in nature. A quiet, exquisite haven outside of the hustle and bustle of the touristy town, AHKi is nestled... More

Usually when I'm in awe of my surroundings, I'm doing something unsafe but at AHKI I felt like I was in a little haven where I was secure to both wander and wonder. This area within the province of Guanacaste is known for its pristine nature and AHKI fits, without competing, with it's beautiful setting. I cannot see AHKI ever... More

... on our oh! too-short day trip in December, Greg and Karen were putting the finishing touches on Ahki (and so our photos reflect the 'in progress' stage). We’d followed their dream of building a Vastu Shastra-inspired mountain-top retreat center from afar for years, but the actuality took our breath away. It is an incredibly tranquil yet energizing place: the... More

This is an extraordinary retreat located in the foot hills of Garza..It an area that I personally prefer as its nicely tucked away in nature and yet easily accessible to nearby towns and commodities..The design of the surrounding building reminds me of being lost in an ancient temple in some other other time..The accommodations are more than comfortable with a...
