"I have hosted three incredible writing retreats at The Retreat over the last few years and I am gearing up for another one in January 2024. There is no other place in all of Costa Rica that is better suited for my writing retreats - with their impeccable front desk service, the exquisite rooms with views that are breathtaking to food that nourishes the mind, body and soul. Yet, don't be fooled - the real secret behind The Retreat's success is the staff. From the minute we enter the lobby, the Costa Rican staff makes every second there blissful. My writing groups have threatened to steal away the chef(s) because their cooking and care is beyond comparison. The farm-to-table meals and environmentally committed philosophy along with the spa services make the space perfect to unwind and focus inward with gratitude. Every single staff member at The Retreat is genuinely invested in our well-being and that is why I keep returning with groups of 8-15 global writers every January.
The venue is superb but it's the people that make The Retreat a real slice of heaven! I am so grateful to have found this space in Costa Rica to run my writing retreats and I look forward to a long-lasting relationship with many more writing retreats in the future!"

Hosting our immersion at The Retreat was an experience that fostered deep connection and transformation for each person who joined us. The energy of the land, gorgeous accommodations, kind and loving staff were just a few of the elements that made for an experience of a lifetime. Our work of spiritual healing, meditation, energy medicine and transpersonal psychology needs a potent sacred container and The Retreat's environment is truly perfect to hold the depth and breadth of work we share through our organization, The EAST Institute. The organic, plant-based, culinary creations nourished our attendees on every level as they continued to journey back home to their authentic selves. Many of our students shared that this was the most transformative experience of their life and we feel that it was the co-creation of our healing work and the energy of this unique and magical property that made this kind of alchemy possible.
