Just as serene as it is detoxifying and developed by raw-foodist, award winning author and Chef gone hotelier, Diana Stobo, this is an awakening. There is simply nowhere we would ever recommend more for detox and wellness-inspired vacations than here. Not only that but they have added sprinkles of adventures and organic wine for those that cant do without, so don’t fret, there is something for everyone here. Immersed in a valley it’s surrounded by mountains and scenic views of nature and the ocean. Our bachelorette and girls gone wild-2.0 version is our experience best seller and there is no way it wouldn’t be, because here, everything you do becomes some sort of spiritual transformation.
Nestled within the mountains of Atenas, The Retreat gardens are a terrace overlooking Pacific Ocean. Altos Del Monte is just7 kilometers outside of Atenas town proper, and has been dubbed “one of the best climates in the world” by National Geographic Society. The landscape of The Retreat provides for beautiful flora and fauna, perfect for long walks, quiet mediation, and wildlife watching.
The beautifully designed Retreat guest rooms are perched on a westward facing hillside just below the main house, and feature breath-taking and unobstructed views of the mountaintops, Pacific Ocean, and Nicoya Peninsula beyond. Guests can relax in a swing on their private balcony while enjoying quiet moments of meditation and submersed in nature’s bounty. The Yoga House rooms feature picturesque views of the property with its stunning waterfall and fire pit, salt-water pool, and sweeping views of the mountaintops from the bay windows of each room.
The gardens, the salt-water pool, the al fresco dining pavilion, and the yoga studio all boast expansive ocean and jungle views- a perfect oasis from life’s hectic pulse. Intended as a space for transformation, The Retreat menu is designed to support healthy, balanced lifestyle choices by offering farm to fork cuisine on a daily basis, with vegan options at every meal, as well as plenty of all raw choices.
