Surrounded by the stunning natural landscape and lush edible organic permaculture gardens, The Retreat provides repose from the daily grind in an artfully inspired luxury setting. We have lovely rooms overlooking the mountains and the Gulf of Nicoya, plus a relaxing pool, jacuzzi, spa, gym, sauna and a fine outdoor restaurant where you can taste our delicious dishes, organic wines and drinks with teas made in home.
