The Retreat Costa Rica


About The Retreat Costa Rica

Founded on natural healing philosophies, The Retreat Costa Rica channels the very best of Costa Rica’s dizzying natural diversity to create a unique and gentle wellness experience for the body and soul. Delve into a technicolour jungle oasis in the country’s Alajuela province, just outside the city of Atenas, characterised by the treasure trove of crystal quartz buried beneath the mountain side, which lends its positive energy vibrations to every aspect of your stay. The water and spa treatments are infused with crystal energy, while the fresh and delicious produce grown on the resort’s farm benefits from the richness of the soil, creating vibrant and inspiring menus which are free from grains and dairy.

The healing through nature theme extends inside, where each of the beautifully curated rooms enjoys breathtaking views of the surrounding valley, extending towards the shimmering Pacific Ocean. Personalised wellness packages focus on inner and outer wellbeing, using natural and organic spa treatments in the expansive Vida Mia spa, cooking classes and plant-based nutrition, and daily yoga practice to refresh and revive your mind, body, and soul.

Spanning an impressive 8,000 square metres, the Vida Mia Spa forges a deep connection to nature through organic remedies, the metaphysical powers of the four elements, and views of the crystal mountain from each of the calming and spacious treatment rooms. From the signature ‘Heaven on Earth’ massage to Ayurveda, crystal healing therapies, and organic, edible body scrubs grown on the resort’s farm, each of the soothing treatments is designed to nurture and restore the body.

The Location

The Retreat Costa Rica’s prime location on a crystal quartz mountain aligns perfectly with its wellness ethos, allowing it to channel the deeply healing energies of the land.
