Location Overview

A mere 40-minute transfer from San Jose airport, The Retreat Costa Rica is perched on the sloping hillside of a quartz mountain and nestled amongst abundant tropical vegetation in the Atenas province. A private, 8-acre estate with panoramic views out to the Pacific Ocean, this transformational wellness retreat is a truly peaceful and blissful haven for those looking to escape on a healthy holiday. Whilst the retreat offers complete seclusion, you can explore the surrounding area with excursions; from guided hiking to artisan chocolate tasting, and from boat trips to zip-lining, whatever your wanderlust craves, it’s guaranteed to be satisfied.


Boca Dulce

Enjoy organic, locally grown and freshly sourced cuisine with the ‘Tico Fresh’ menu at Boca Dulce, with plenty of raw, vegan, fish and meat options. Dine al-fresco as you indulge in a varied selection of nutritionally dense, clean foods that create the basis for The Retreat’s underlying philosophy. Throughout the day, the restaurant provides pressed juices, superfood smoothies and handcrafted cocktails which you can enjoy by the pool, in the gym or delivered to your room.

Wellness Facilities

The spa

With the sole intention of bettering overall health, the ‘Cristal Lotus’ Spa at The Retreat will transform your well-being and address any health issues through natural approaches. With nutrition being a core element of wellness, its healing powers are harnessed with ‘farm to spa edible body magic’ treatments. Why not try an authentic Costa Rican body scrub, able to miraculously dilate the cells and reduce the appearance of cellulite, or opt for a mint chocolate treatment which improves circulation and removes dead skin. Whichever your dish, nourish your senses and find total bliss at this haven of tranquillity.

Wellness Approach

The approach to wellness is all-round and demarcated by six core tenets: stress reduction, cultural involvement, gentle physical activity, spiritual connectedness, wellness recovery and organic eating.
