One week birding, yoga, and delicious ayurvedic prepared meals made this an incredibly memorable and wonderful experience at Sanctuary of Two Rivers. Each day was another delight. Liz's talent and intuition as a yoga leader were inspirational, challenging and restorative and each of our twice daily yoga sessions was another avenue of exploration... Jeff's vision, knowledge and super high energy helped us find every possible bird sighting across the 44 acres of amazing Jungle property... and Michelle and her team provided 3 meals a day of healthy, delicious, inventive and satisfying Ayurvedic vegetarian cuisine.

The accommodations to the open air are captivating... sleeping to the beautiful sounds of monkeys, nightlife, birds, was amazing. Open air shower - WOW!...

Yoga Pagoda and yoga open air is so energizing!.. and everywhere you go, you find another place that you want to stay awhile and savor the experience.

I highly recommend the Sanctuary!

I have been fortunate to have many amazing getaways, but this one tops them all. The Sanctuary is just that...a sanctuary. It is remote, private, stunningly beautiful, peaceful and magical. From the initial walk through the river and onto the property, the transformation begins. The accommodations are amazing, open, thoughtfully built and beautiful, complete with a shower facing the garden outside. The howler monkeys, jungle sounds and perfect breeze pull you into nature and the spectacular yoga pagoda brings your practice to a whole new level. The gourmet vegetarian meals are lovingly prepared and honestly the best I have ever had. I can’t rave enough about the staff and I highly recommend this magical, peaceful and transformative place.

A retreat where there are no judgements, where who you are is celebrated and expanded in a setting as natural and spectacular as any jungle movie you've ever seen. The yoga, the meditations, the hikes, services, food are not to be topped and the staff is upbeat, knowlegable, professional and loving. A most satisfying and joyous experience!

Jeff, Liz and their small and helpful team make you feel staying with an extended family in a magnificant jungle paradise.

I stayed here throughout a Yoga retreat and we an amazing time.
Completly rejuvenating. Being connected with nature, letting go and enjoying being far away from civilisation.

We enjoyed the lovely Pagoda for Yoga (and listening to the monkeys and birds at the same time), the outstanding fresh organic food created by chef Michelle (** Quality!), wonderful massages and whatever treatment you may look for.

Watch the stars in the night from this remote place!

If you like additional action and don't want to stay here for the whole day there are other activities possible such as a good horseride, etc.

Thanks to you all in the Sanctuary team.
You made it an amazing and memorable stay!

We went to a yoga retreat - loved the opportunity to do yoga in the pagoda. The vegetarian good is absolutely gourmet! Also take advantage of the massages offered. Sarah is awesome. All the staff are friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: We stayed in Studio 1 - a comfortable tree house in the jungle. Right by the newly installed Hammoc...

I just led a week long yoga retreat at the Sanctuary...having researched many places, I am unbelievably grateful this was my final choice. Being in the remote jungle, surrounded by nature, eating decadent, healthy food, with such wonderful people, and nourishing energy was a healing, rejuvenating journey of body and soul. The facilities - including our rooms with outdoor showers, our beloved yoga pagoda, the pool and massage rooms, and each little stone on the pathways connecting them all - were impeccably and mindfully designed. Everything is very simple, but the materials are high quality, creating a feeling of luxury that isn't indulgent. There are hikes to take solo or with friends in every direction...to a nearby canopied waterfall or a further grand waterfall, to a vista overlooking the jungle and ocean or a river walk to the local beach. The food served here is some of the best I've ever had, and that is saying a LOT. The staff are lovely, helpful and respectful. I am looking forward to returning to the Sanctuary very soon!
