My husband and I booked Bali Pavillion for a three night stay and wow what a luxury it was to have the entire property to ourselves! The drive was something else but definitely worth it for the incredible house and jungle setting. We spotted white-faced monkeys, three-toed sloth AND two-toed sloth, hummingbird, toucan, different kinds of poisonous dart frogs, lizards,...

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,...

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,...

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...

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)...

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...

If you are looking for an amazing location for a yoga retreat with an intimate setting and unparalleled amenities, this is it.

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,...

“Free wifi in the Dining/Main meeting Room. Surprisingly good internet connection for a place that seems so remote! If you work online you can work from here! Wifi reaches the private room at the north end of the meeting room and to the first room across the path to the south of the meeting room. We did not need the A/C.”
