About the Retreat

Enjoy the natural beauty of Dominical Costa Rica, at Manu Retreat centre – perched on the mountains overlooking the Pacific Ocean, with 30 acres of lush tropical rain forest. The surrounding landscape is peaceful and breathtaking, inspiring you to awaken your senses.

Relax, Rest & Restore:

Dip into one of two infinity pools, walk through the tropical gardens, lounge and relax in the luxury of your Bali-style villa or bedroom, catch a glimpse of the colorful toucans, savor the delicious meals made with love, enjoy spectacular sunsets every night as you converse with friends, old and new; take in the harmonic and uplifting sounds of crystal and Tibetan singing bowls as you wind down each evening and indulge yourself in the elements of nature. Pause, breathe and enjoy personal time.

Awaken Your Senses Day trips:
