I signed up for a program through the Omega Institute at the Blue Spirit Resort and ventured on my first solo adventure. I was a bit nervous, especially as i was sharing a room with someone I had never met, simply because I booked so late there were no singles available. Thirty seconds into the trip and my fear was...

After taking our group of 30+ to Blue Spirit this April-- I have nothing but excellent things to say about this location, its accommodation, its food but, most importantly it's staff. Raquel, Jose and John went above and beyond to make our group feel welcome and taken care of. Being the single point of contact for our group of 30+,... More

I have done several yoga retreats and this location is definitely one of my favorites! Our group practiced in the Sky Hall which I can say is the most beautiful yoga room I have ever practiced in with amazing views of the ocean and the jungle. During our evening practice, troops of howler monkeys would come swinging through the trees... More

We have been to Blue Spirit for the last five years with groups of yoga students. We keep going back because everyone loves it so much once they go, and those who haven't gone want a chance when they hear the glowing reports. The food, accommodations, amenities, staff and service are all top-notch. The private beach is easy to access... More

I've visited and led Wellness and Yoga retreats at Blue Spirit every January for the past four years. The journey isn't too far from New York and other major cities, and yet it feels very remote. The facilities are top notch, with wonderful classrooms, a beautiful open air dining room and common areas overlooking the ocean. Hermitage rooms in the... More

Everything about Blue Spirit was fabulous - from the early morning wake up call from the Howler Monkey's to the cool evening breezes filling the yoga room while we chanted. The food was delicious, organic and mostly vegetarian. The staff were helpful. The massage therapists great. There are four yoga rooms and they all have a special feel to them.... More

We have been to Blue Spirit for the past 5 years and the beauty of this sanctuary never ceases to amaze me. Every year the retreat center-hotel becomes more and more beautiful. New art, new installations, more plants sheltering you and more wild animals to discover. The facilities are incredibly confortable and natural. My family is returning for New Year's... More
