Ama tierra Resort Costa Rica January 2010
My first trip to Costa Rica couldn’t have been any more wonderful than it was. I traveled to Costa Rica for the purposes of attending a spiritual retreat – a cellular activation and shift to mark and celebrate the beginning of what promises to be the most amazing year of my life to date, 2010.
The event was organized and planned out for myself and 11 other excited and committed attendees for the week immediately after Christmas.
We were graciously welcomed at Ama Tierra Wellness Resort located in San Pablo De Turrubares Costa Rica.
Our hosts Bob and Jill welcomed each and everyone of us with open arms and hospitality that would make anyone feel as though you’d been a part of their family for most of your life.
The wellness resort is a sanctuary of quiet, beauty, love, and kindness. In Costa Rica their highly regarded and often spoken mantra is pura Vida meaning pure life. Ama Tierra’s Resort Manager Kenny exemplifies the pure essence of the spirit and meaning of those well wishes.
The resort lies nestled upon the mountain side overlooking the beautiful valley of lush green landscape and on the high peaks you can enjoy the view of the ocean from a far. A particular treat if you venture up the hill to view the sunset which occurred for us starting at around 5:15 nightly.
The resort boasts the finest of foods prepared daily with the loving hands of the dedicated staff for which the planning of each guests dietary requirements is closely cared for by Jill. One of the talents that struck me the most was Bob’s innate skillful and truly earnest interest in the art of conversation. He can engage anyone in conversation in the most respectful and curious of ways. His manner and his interest in talking with each and every quest throughout their stay comes from a genuine place of interest in both who the guest is individually; however additionally from ensuring the guest is going to be able to have the most unique experience during their stay not only at the resort but also in Costa Rica in general.
He loves the country so much and it’s truly his wish for each and every visitor to have the experience of a lifetime and equally fall in love with its beauty and its splendor.
The yoga studio, healing center and massage areas are beyond magnificence. The teak hardwood floors defy description in terms of the craftsman ship and attention to detail that went into completing truly a work of art. Overlooking the valley and reaching out to the mountains and sky at the same time high above the tree’s the tranquility of the space and healing means by which Jill provides her yoga instruction amongst other highly skilled talents puts your heart in a place of oneness with all that is, that truly takes us out of our daily stresses and reconnects us to Mother Earth.
My stay in Costa Rica at Ama Tierra was beyond description in terms of the joy and satisfaction it brought to me in terms of a quiet sanctuary and retreat away from home.
Anyone considering visiting the country of Pure Life has to absolutely include in their travel itinerary a visit to AmaTierra wellness resort. The rooms are quaint, tranquil, quiet and provide all the amenities you could possibly need. For nature lovers the variety of plants, vegetation, landscape, and beauty will astound you.
