“Beauty inside and out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2011

The food is clean, fresh and highly nutritious. The yoga is achievable and extremely toning. The staff are magical and the weight loss achieved very satisfactory. I left feeling more beautiful inside and out with a new calmness which has lasted.
The bedrooms are fab, clean and fresh with tasteful colour schemes and the infa red sauna was a huge bonus along with the hot tub.
The hikes are uplifting as well as challenging. Come and stay here if you want to lose weight, improve your skin and radiate health.

I was fortunate enough to stumble upon Blue Pearl Laguna while searching the internet for a pre-Christmas destination for my wife and me. I knew only vaguely what I was looking for, but when I read through the website I was sure that the Blue Pearl was it. My wife ultimately could not get the time off work, so I ended up going solo, which turned out to be a great experience. The newly restored facility and grounds are beautiful - every detail is cared for. All of the rooms are lovely - mine had a large bathroom and shower, with a beautiful view of the Laguna wilderness (and no TV, no phone). All meals are included and are an epicurean delight, 100% vegetarian. No alcohol is served.

One thing that is important to know is Blue Pearl Laguna is not a traditional bed-and-breakfast type place. There are a couple of different programs – one four day program and a seven-plus day program. I stayed eight days, many people stay ten days or two weeks. Except for a hiking excursion each day, I never left the resort. A typical day runs as follows: wake at 6:30am with a hot tea, yoga at 7, followed by breakfast (mostly locally sourced and all 100% organic fruit and yogurt), then off for a several hour hike in one of several nature preserves, including the beach. After the hike is a customized gym workout, followed by a wonderful lunch. After lunch and hot tea, there is a massage (included), an infrared sauna, whirlpool (and a nap for me). Each evening includes, in addition to dinner, a light yoga session, as well as an “extra-curricular” of some sort – one night was Tai Chi, another night focused on energy awareness and meditation techniques.

The thing that really made my stay at the Blue Pearl unforgettable was the incredible team that Geo and Katresha have put together. Without exception I met folks who are working in a job they love, who really care about the job they are doing. It makes the experience personal. A stay at Blue Pearl Laguna is not cheap, but for anyone looking for something that is fundamentally more authentic and personally valuable than the typical vacation, it is well worth it.
