“A place of healing and reflection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

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. The rooms were beautiful and the food was excellent. Bring comfy shoes as the walk from the rooms to the main resort is quite an uphill trek. Also, be sure to bring a headlamp or flashlight as there aren't a lot of lights at night. If you intend to leave to explore I suggest renting a car as it is about a 20 minute ride to the beach (it's really not that far away, but the roads are so poor). Otherwise they can call for a cab, but you need to give 4-5 hours notice. The mosquitoes aren't bad, but the occasional bug might find its way into your room. Since I was in the jungle I expected it. If you want to buy beverages from them bring some cash to pay.

All in all fabulous place and I hope to return next year.

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 and really gives you the opportunity to relax, and breathe in the beauty of nature that surrounds you. On top of being in a great location close to beaches and other nearby excursions, ahki retreat has plenty to offer those who stay here. One could spend all day around the retreat swimming in the infinity pool, lounging on the day beds in the cabana, swinging in a hammock that overlooks the ocean in the near distance, feeling the cool breeze from the upper yoga space as you meditate or do yoga, get lost in a book inside the library/salon, or just sit back and enjoy the view of the mountains that surround you! Just remember to take a moment in the evening to kick back by the fire pit, or lounge in a chair to gaze up at the stars that glow brightly against the dark night sky. Thank you again Karen and Greg for welcoming me into your home and your hearts with light and love. Xoxo ~ Jessica Grace

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.

What an exquisite spot!!! The ambiance was soothing & very zen. The food, views, monkeys & people left nothing to be desired. I would return in a heartbeat. The hosts are accommodating and knowledgeable. The location leaves nothing to be desired; sunrises over the jungle canopy & sunsets over the pacific.

AHKi is built to be in harmony with the incredible natural beauty that surrounds it. Karen and Greg have created a place that is, indeed, a sanctuary for the Soul. Every detail of this stunning retreat enhances your experience. The guest rooms are spacious, the common areas are beautiful and the food is great. There are wonderful views of the ocean and the mountains. At night the stars seem close enough to touch!

Just returned from an amazing week at AHKi. What a beautiful place. The attention to detail and the convergence with nature are inspired. I was there for a week long retreat and it's an incredible place for such an experience.
