Everything about Manu Yoga Retreats was amazing. The lodging, pools, meals, staff, spa and setting are just incredible. I highly recommend a stay at Manu for travelers heading to Dominical, Costa Rica!

I just returned from a 4-night stay at Manu Yoga retreats and it was one of the most special, relaxing, beautiful places I have ever experienced. The houses are architecturally amazing, the entire staff was incredibly friendly, and the food was so local and fresh. Every day, we were greeted by toucans in the trees, dart frogs along the paths,... More

This place was amazing! The staff could not have been friendlier and more accommodating. The food was delicious and the kitchen staff was very amenable to any changes we requested. They all went above and beyond. It is a quaint secluded property off the beaten path that provides gorgeous views and spectacular flora and fauna. Short drive from the beach,... More

Six of us stayed at the beautiful, luxurious and comfortable Manu Villas the second week of March. The perfect place for 3 close couple friends (55y - 65y) to relax, cook and eat together, explore nearby areas/beaches and enjoy spectacular sunsets every night while floating and drinking pina coladas in the perfect infinity pool overlooking the ocean. Manu Villas, the... More

We stayed at Manu PooToo Treehouse for the second half of our Costa Rican honeymoon. We are an active couple, 2nd marriage, 46 & 51yrs old. The tree house was spectacular in every way. It was a good little hike up to the home after a 15 minute drive up the mountain (which is very steep and not all paved)... More

I've been traveling to Costa Rica these last few years leading meditation and yoga retreats. By far, of all the places we've taught this is the most peaceful, beautiful and secluded mountain top ocean view retreat. Our meditations were pristine, both morning and night and the Hatha Yoga sessions were divinely inspired. The jungle Yoga Pavillion made an excellent space... More

I spent a week at Manu Resort with a yoga/meditation group. The owner is easy to work with. The buildings are really beautiful with such attention to detail, especially in the woodwork. The view from the house toward the Pacific ocean is really lovely. The weather was comfortable 80-ish degrees F. The location is about 15-20 minute drive into Dominical,... More

My wife and I just got home from one of the most divine vacations we've ever enjoyed! Hatha yoga and meditation every day at the Manu Villas was a deep dive into ourselves in a supremely luxurious location. The buildings are set around a small peak in the jungle just north of Dominical, Costa Rica's surfing capital. They are connected... More
