Never before have I traveled to a property where I wanted to become part of the staff. This is a special place, tucked away in a special part of the world, run by incredible people. It's worth every effort to get here and experience the magic of a true retreat.

While it is a long drive to Sansara, literally at the end of the road awaits a gem that truly does sit where the ocean meets the jungle. The resort is very well designed with beautiful views of the ocean. The chef Maria serves up delicious and healthy food. It is the staff that sets Sansara apart - everyone knows your name and they truly want you to have the best week and work their best to make that happen. We had a group of us that did lot of surfing and Kenny, Luis, RJ, Alex and Cami all did a great job taking us to the best places for the conditions. We also do the tide pool adventure with Kenny and Luis and I highly recommend that. There is not much else around Sansara In terms of restaurants, shops, etc. - this was perfect for us but some people may want to know that because that would not be perfect for them.

Sansara is one of the most amazing places we have ever stayed. Every detail has been thought of. The grounds, rooms, facilities are all beautiful and clean. The staff are attentive and friendly while respecting your space and privacy. Food and drinks are amazing, healthy and fresh. You can experience amazing yoga classes with a beautiful ocean view and the surf areas are super user friendly and the instructors knowledgeable, safe and fun. Beginners to advanced surfers can all enjoy the areas.
