ANAMAYA: Yoga retreats and more
Since 2009, Anamaya has been offering life-changing 7-day retreats. You might think it’s lofty to say that a 7-day retreat can change your life, but Anamaya isn’t like most Retreat Centers and our guests agree.
Our epic and unique location overlooking pristine jungle and 270 degrees of ocean coastline, along with our stunning salt water infinity pool, adventurous excursions, educational classes, custom retreats, delicious food, health enriching spa services and inspiring energy of Anamaya’s team have motivated our guests to come back time and time again.
Based on your needs and interests you can customize your own unique experience. Below are some examples of the perfect retreat you can create at Anamaya.
PLEASE NOTE: Some of these excursions or add-ons may not be available due to weather restrictions, etc. Please check with our Reservations Department for updated information.
Example Retreat creations
Costa Rica is the perfect place to add some adventure into your life! We offer zip-lining, horseback riding, hiking, surfing, snorkeling, boat tours and more! Feel free to add one or two of these excursions to your retreat, or fill your days with one adrenaline rush after another!
If you are new to surfing, or an avid surfer who would like to take their skills to the next level – there is no better place to surf than Costa Rica. Surf with professional instructors who are attentive and focused on all the details, so you can enjoy the ocean in one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
Most of our guests come to Anamaya to practice yoga on our epic yoga decks overlooking the ocean and the jungle. You can participate in all 10 classes we offer throughout the week… or take a class here and there, depending on how you feel… or decide not to participate in yoga at all… the choice is up to you.
If you’re interested in creating a retreat for yourself that includes relaxing and recharging your batteries, then we have numerous options for you to do just that. From Spa Treatments to Watsu Therapy to our famous Beach Excursion… you will have the opportunity to get out of your head and back into your body for the rejuvenation you deserve.
We have many private rooms designed well for intimate partners, couples massages and a romantic dining option on the patio (in dry seasion) for those interested in cultivating more connection.

Can't say enough about how special the Anamaya Resort is. The atmosphere is super friendly, casual and relaxing which I appreciate because we (husband, adult daughter and her friend) were not looking for a stuffy hotel type of service/environment. Gorgeous setting, lovely and clean accommodations with great views, genuine staff, excellent spa treatment selection and service, great yoga classes twice a day (Banyan Gallagher....but the teachers vary from week to week) and loved the camaraderie built over the week with fellow visitors (15 guests total the week we were there). A highlight was the tour of their organic farm where all their delicious food comes from and the beach trip with all the guests and staff (surfing for those that wanted it). Will come again!
Katia: Yoga Retreat
Testimonial: "Treasure in Paradise..."
"My stay at Anamaya was the most refreshing vacation of my life... I awoke each morning for an hour of yoga on the most beautiful yoga deck with a panoramic view of the jungle and the Pacific. The rest of my days were filled with a swim in the infinity pool, zip lining, waterfall climbing, aerial silks, Zumba and surfing... the pictures do not do it justice. You cannot smell or feel the amazing vibe it has. I have booked a return trip to Anamaya in a few months. So fortunate to have stumbled upon this treasure in paradise."

Testimonial: "Amazing Yoga and Surf Retreat..."
"My friends and I just returned from a week long yoga retreat at Anamaya and I have had a difficult time finding words to describe how amazing the entire trip was!!! Not only did our retreat to Anamaya allow us to escape the stresses our daily lives (if only for a few days), but the memories with the new friends we made, the staff at Anamaya and the people of Costa Rica will remain with me forever.... The food was unbelievably fresh and good, and I have missed putting coconut milk in my coffee ever since! Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!"a

Testimonial: "Anamaya has a piece of my heart. I can't wait to return to heaven on earth!"
"Upon arrival, we were immediately greeted by one of the gracious owners and the beautiful ocean, glimmering all around us. The view from the saltwater infinity pool or the yoga deck under a full moon will forever be burned in my memory... the private lodging gave us an intimate view of the sunrise over the water each morning and an equally magnificent sunset from our porch's hammock. I WILL be back and I highly suggest making Anamaya a must-do on your travel itinerary!"

Testimonial: "Paradise found..."
"Doing early morning yoga on the deck that overlooks the beautiful Pacific Ocean is something I'll never forget. My mind definitely wandered more than it should during yoga as I took the amazing views. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. It's even more beautiful in person... We were very lucky and people who started the week as strangers quickly became our friends. We had many a laugh while sitting around the pool... We'll be back..."

PERMACULTURE AND YOGA AT OUR FARM
We are excited to offer our guests coming down to Costa Rica a Permaculture & Yoga retreat. This is held at our farm Rancho Delicioso, NOT AT ANAMAYA. At the farm you’ll be getting your hands dirty while you learn about organic farming and sustainable living. A popular combination is to stay at the farm first and rough it a bit… then stay a week at Anamaya for some pampering. You are already paying for a flight down here, so why not stay an extra week and learn about sustainable farming. This program includes 6 nights accommodations, 3 organic meals per day, yoga classes, and daily permaculture classes.
