We arrived on our shuttle after a long and bumpy ride from San Jose. After ringing the bell, Arik arrived immediately to warmly greet us. He invited us into Olam for a smoothie and set the tone for a relaxing vacation. Once we had our smoothies, we were given a tour around our Villa.
The Villa had everything we needed. It was spacious and well-designed. The living room was very comfortable to relax in between activities and after a long day exploring. The wifi worked perfectly for skype. We used the kitchen for snacks and breakfasts. I used the water to brush my teeth but didn’t drink it. The patio was also very nice and useful. We brought pastries from the Bakery and drinks from Olam to enjoy a breakfast on the patio after yoga one morning.
The yoga classes were very good. I love practicing yoga in the city but this was such a better experience. The beautiful yoga deck overlooking the jungle where you can feel the ocean breeze and hear the birds sing provided the perfect space to practice. I attended three yoga classes and enjoyed each one of them. Since the class sizes are small, the teachers were able to cater to our skills and preferences. After days of surfing and walking on the beach, we were sore, and the teacher provided a more restorative practice. It was very relaxing.
The overall hotel setting is very calm and the gardens are beautiful. I enjoyed the pool area as I read and wrote postcards between swims. One of the best parts is the friendliness of the owners. Adi was so kind and thoughtful. She always made sure to ask how our day was going and ensure we were having a good time. She was really great in helping us plan activities and make reservations. She also made us feel extra cared for through details like by making sure we’d get an English-speaking taxi driver so we can properly communicate our plans.
Thank you for such a wonderful stay!
