I spent ten days at the Present Moment Retreat; the staff were fabulous. The morning meditations and yoga classes were very intuitive. On the premises they have a variety of health services for those interested. I felt sublime after staying here for 10 days. Oh and the the restaurant, I wanted to eat every dish on the menu. Arriving home...

Back to Bliss Yoga just returned from our 2nd trip to Present Moment...& I must say that we will be back again. My favorite part as one of the yoga teachers is that this is such a beautiful setting to teach yoga overlooking the Pacific Ocean. CJ & Cobie did a fabulous job of making our job easier.

I have spent many weeklong vacations in Mexico. Zihuatenejo and the Playa del Ropa are one one my favorite destination vacations. Three years ago I discovered a whole new Mexican vacation genre when I spent a week with a Ted R.'s yoga group from the Twin Cites at PMR. I have been back every year since. PMR offers a place...

This was my third year at present moment, each time on a YogaTed retreat with great yogies. I am sure it would be equally stunning with any visit. The first year was spectacular and it keeps getting better. Not because it's a 5 star hotel but because it's a 10 star, unpretentious yoga retreat. All the necessities for comfort without...

"Back to Bliss" founders, Jen and Harriet, (the two yoga instructors that traveled with our yoga group from Montana) believe in having fun while practicing yoga and taking in all that is offered at a destination, and yet emphasize that everything is optional~ even yoga! At Present Moment Retreat Center the "art of doing nothing" can be mastered, along with...

Don't be fooled by the rustic look and simplicity of this resort. Getting back to basics has its cachet! So don't expect a safe, a door that locks or a hair dryer but do expect falling asleep to the sound of waves and living a totally awesome experience connecting with nature and feeling the amazing energy that transpires throughout the...

PMR has the best healing staff, of many different modalities. Massage (all types, of course), acupuncture, cranial sacral, gi gong, tai chi, sacred dance, aromatherapy, sound vibration, coaching, and much more. My experience with their very own bruja was magical -- her knowledge of plant medicine, the elements, and ancient Mexican healing techniques was spot on. I trust her entirely....

It's easy to be present PMR. I went with a group for a yoga retreat. I would return in a heartbeat for another yoga retreat or on my own. I'm still dreaming about my week there in January 2014. Loved the authentic accommodations. I also like the smaller environment. It was a perfect combination of authentic but not too rustic....

At the risk of restating: this is a magical place, truly transformative in so many beautiful and unexpected ways. The amazing people who own, run and work at PMR have managed to create a space that just feels good in some inexplicable way. No doubt it is physically/aesthetically sublime—from the cabanas to the landscaping to the beautiful beach the property...

I vacationed here in July-2013 and my experience was beyond my expectations. The staff is awesome, the place reflects so much peace and tranquility.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our exclusive oceanfront boutique hotel and yoga retreat is situated on a quiet, serene beach in Troncones, thirty minutes up the coast from Ixtapa, Zihuatanejo, Mexico. Restore in a gorgeous setting with wellness classes, yoga by the sea, meditation, qigong, dance classes and more. Rejuvenate with our offerings of spa treatments and healing arts. Dine on healthy gourmet cuisine. Take in the local adventures such as sunset horseback riding, eco tours, waterfall hiking, kayaking, surf-yoga excursions, surf lessons, shopping in our boutique, exploring the village and much more. Our loving staff have pleased even the most discerning guests, and are ready to delight you. Our eleven private bungalows are the perfect antidote to the chaos of everyday life. Each unique bungalow is dedicated to one of the values that we hold in the highest regard. Authenticity was imperative in the construction of every inch of Present Moment. Thus, all bungalows have an indigenous palapa thatched roof, hand-crafted in the Mexican tradition, and are furnished with a pillow top queen-sized bed, luxurious 400 count cotton bedding and a canopy of white linen. ... more   less
