Step out of your routine and enter an oasis where paradise and yoga unite to create an unforgettable energy.
Anamaya Resort, situated on a cliff’s edge with incredible ocean views, provides a stunning setting to recharge, reconnect and take your practice to another level.
The Nicoya Peninsula has been named one of the world’s Blue Zone areas – one of five places in the world where people live the healthiest and longest. Montezuma is located on the southern tip of the peninsula on the pacific ocean. Anamaya is a short hike away from epic waterfalls surrounded by tropical rain forests proven to be one of many most memorable moments. The local beach town is a short walk downhill and popular beach towns such as Mal Pais and Santa Teresa are only 25 minutes away.
Enjoy waking up to the sounds of monkeys rustling in the trees and tropical birds singing away. Maybe catch the sunrise peeking up over the horizon while lounging with some freshly brewed Costa Rican coffee, take a morning dip in the salt-water infinity pool or choose to sprawl onto the yoga deck to soak in some sun before morning practice. Morning classes will include discussions, fun-filled and creative vinyasa flow practice, pranayama and meditation, all on the yoga deck with a view that will naturally heighten your awareness and infuse you with vibrational energy. Late afternoon workshops will include Traditional Pilates, Contact Yoga, Mindfulness Meditation, Freeing the Breath and more.
Anamaya is Sanskrit for good health and wellness which is the true focus of this retreat. Nourishing organic, gourmet, aqua-vegetarian meals with gluten free options are served three times daily and an option for our group to go into town for lunch to enjoy local cuisine is always recommended.
With plenty of time to relax, hang in a hammock, swim and explore, this retreat is sure to meet all of your vacation needs and then some. If spending your down time at Anamaya is your preference, a variety of impressive spa services that are sure to make you melt are offered on site. If you are itching to get out and explore, adventures to wildlife reserves, a boat excursion to Tortuga Island’s white sandy beaches, snorkeling, diving, surfing, hiking, fishing, canopy tours, horseback riding on the beach and shopping are amongst several options that can be easily arranged through the resort.
Anamaya’s charming variety of cabinas are elegantly designed with every detail focusing on protecting the environment. These boutique style accommodations are sure to keep you comfortable with air conditioning, ceiling fans and organic cotton sheets.
