Anamaya Resort, a breathtaking exotic place, is built on a cliff edge and overlooking the most incredible ocean views. The view, the food, the yoga, the surfing are all first class. The staff make it feel like your home. Overlooking the jungle and ocean makes the daily yoga practice so much more than one thinks it could be; and having a special visit from a couple of monkeys every once in a while was a real treat too. Anamaya Resort and Retreat Center hosts a number of fun, healthy and exciting retreats and now their Yoga Teacher Trainings have become a big part of their yearly program because of the high demand.

Aside from Yoga, Anamaya offers a healthy-living environment by providing only organic and local food. The fish is fresh and usually caught daily. The fruits and vegetables are pesticide and harmful chemicals free and they even offer gluten-free dining. Anamaya is one of the most eco-friendly resorts in Costa Rica, designed to maximize airflow and shade for natural cooling, and non-toxic building materials used throughout.

he accommodations are the perfect balance of luxury and simplicity which immediately make you feel loved and wrapped in the comforts of home. The views from our cabana were incredible; we woke up with the howler monkeys at sunrise every morning and opened the curtains to soak it all in—-or went out on our balcony in the hammocks—-too awesome! The infinity pool is fun but the big thing you will definitely love is the proximity to the waterfalls, just a great 5 minute walk down the hill. Anamaya works with Young Vision Surf School and they come and pick you up right at the front door of the property.

The name Anamaya is the most perfect one as Anamaya focuses on holistic wellness and Anamaya Means ‘good health’ in Sanskrit. Good food, good place, good people, good yoga, and good fun are seen as vital elements to a well-balanced spirit, and all are served up in healthy portion-sizes. The food is organic, sourced locally. The place is exotic and the people are friendly. Their young, experienced and ever smiling Yoga instructor are their assets.
