“OMG”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

I just returned from spending a week at Present Moment. I am not a "yoga guy" at home, but I accompanied my wife and figured I'd take a few easy classes and enjoy the beach and some food. Boy, was I in for a surprise! Everything, including the facility, the classes and massages, the quality and style of the food, and the amazing staff, was beyond my wildest expectations. In general, when I plan a 7-day trip, I'm ready to go home on day 5. This time, when day 7 rolled around, I found that I wanted to stay longer. I and my wife plan on making Present Moment an annual event.

Present Moment Retreat is a haven for all those who find their way there. Every facet of your stay is mindfully cared for by CJ, Coby and their staff. You will LOVE the setting, friendliness, food, and whole-being approach that they have created. Their attention to every detail - from the organic soaps in the shower to the heart centered yoga classes by the sea - invites you to rest, relax and renew.

What a gift this retreat space is to the planet! Truly!

Room Tip: We stayed in the room entitled "Bliss" thought all of them looked equally charming...

We spent a week in March at PMR with our two daughters, 15 and 17, and loved it. The instructors, staff and proprietors were delightful in every aspect. The daily classes and excursions kept us busy when we wanted to, and the setting and beach were relaxing when we needed it. The food is exceptionally tasty and fresh, and very health conscious. And the drinks, n.a. and a., are delicious and in wide variety. The open air cabins are just the right size for night time. And the pool invites for a quick dip.

We would recommend PMR full heartedly for a long weekend getaway or a weeklong retreat. It is a little oasis in a busy world, a paradise within yoga retreats, where one feels at home quickly.

Room Tip: All cabins are in a semicircle around the pool and all great.

we attended a retreat here, that was led by another yoga instructor, Happy Jack, but also had access to all of the amenities that Present Moment Retreat offers. It was exceptional. The extensive menu was filled with page upon page of delightful dishes, with choices from the light and vegan menu, to spectacular seafood dishes, pasta, you name it. My favourite, which was ordered at least once, if not twice a day, was the mound of guacamole that had veges poked in all around, to make it look like a porcupine. Of course, you could get tortilla chips too, but the veges and guac was absolutely addictive. Fantastic smoothies. And an ultimate molten chocolate cake that shouldn't be missed. Loved the variety of practitioners. Gracious hosts. Live music. Hmmmm. Memorable for so many reasons.

from the very first inquiry we made prior to booking, to the day we left PMR; nothing , absolutely nothing was less than genuine and gracious. All/any service provided was done by genuine human beings. People who love life and are fulfilled by being, not simply doing because it is their job. The accomadations/bungalows were immpecable, the food diverse and wonderfully prepared (6 days never ate elsewhere). The location and layout of buildings are secluded and private, extremely safe and comfortable. After a day or so, we realized what might have been slightly dissapointing for us, was in fact a special effect. The beautiful rock deposit along the beach and into the ocean just in front of the resort prevented easy acess. However, by it's prescence the spetacular natural view was uninterupted as the swimmers were just down the beach +/- 100 yards.
The classes and services allow for as much activity as needed when one is on a retreat vacation.
We didn't go to PMR because we knew of or, expected particular offerings or agendas. We went for the thatched roofs and quiet beach, what we left with, is priceless. we have had the good fortune of worldly travels spanning several decades, this belongs in the top 2.

i don't usually write reviews and don't really want to give away the secret of PRESENT MOMENT, but i can't help myself. PMR is one of the most beautiful places on earth. And, not only does its cover live up to its reality, meaning the water is as blue as it looks online, the rich and colorful huts, as pretty when you first open the door, and the beds as comfortable as promised. Every morsel of food is prepared to perfection with care and attention, and you can live on juice alone, or go for the nachos at happy hour. Traveling alone, i appreciated the attention of the wonderful owners and hosts. The cherry on top of this delicious place are the amazing healers and staff. See Michelle, the healing hands/acupuncturist with an attitude to transform yourself, and take a piece of PMR home with you!

Room Tip: You can't go wrong. Every hut is perfectly situated around the pool and within hearing distance...
