Our kitchen is the heartbeat of our resort and our philosophy for living clean with food is the foundation of our wellness program. We reinforce this philosophy with willingness to share this knowledge with you so you can take your learning back into the world with you. Our teaching kitchen gives us the opportunity in an exquisite setting to teach many aspects of organic lifestyles. Classes in raw food preparations, herbal medicine making, fermenting, juicing and sprouting are a few offerings of the curriculum, which can be customized to maximize your experience here.
Our yoga house opens to the most beautiful terrace, situated to overlook THE RETREAT and has unobstructed views to the Pacific Ocean. The combined yoga studio, teaching kitchen, and terrace also function as event space that can accommodate up to 70 guests to host any function in delicious style and grace with a touch of rustic organic feel. Imagine a retreat in the clouds overlooking the lush Pacific Valley that inspires greater creativity and stretches the minds of your executives with training and education at THE RETREAT.
There are many local day trips to satisfy a wide range of desires, from challenging hiking trips to leisurely walks through the local wildlife refuge. There are artisan chocolate tastings, and organic coffee farm tours, beach days with surf lessons or boat trips, trips to the farmer’s market, and of course the beloved zip lining. Our concierge can customize a day-trip for you based on what you would like to see and that will complement your experience here at The Retreat.
The yoga house is set at the peak of THE RETREAT and with beautiful French doors, opens to a large terrace overlooking the Pacific Valley. This space accommodates 20 yogis and is fully stocked with mats, blocks, bolsters, straps, and meditation pillows.
Not only is our gym stocked with the newest equipment, TRX, aerial yoga, elliptical, treadmill, varying dumbbell weights, and exercise balls; but it also comes with incredible views. Run three miles on the treadmill while gazing out over the valley and feel like you are in the clouds…
Guests have full access to the community room with board games and an extensive lending library. Nights on the yoga terrace get cozy around the fire pit with a glass of organic wine and a telescope for stargazing. Or go for a night swim in the heated pool or relax in the Jacuzzi before heading off to bed. Bird watching is incredible here due the altitude and diversity of plant life – you will see hummingbirds, toucans and other tropical birds.
