Anamaya was great! The staff was like family and it was beyond beautiful there. The food was incredibly good and healthy. The yoga deck was the most serene place imaginable, perfect for yoga. The view from the deck felt as if you were in a movie. Hope I get to visit again! Could not have asked for a more beautiful...

Not enough words to describe the experience at this beautiful resort. The pictures do not do it enough justice. Not to mention the wonderful staff who were always willing to help out with any need I had. They were caring, kind, pleasant and very friendly. Yoga was intense and invigorating, wonderful instructor. The massages as relaxing as can be.The food...

Also, if you have...

I recently attended a month long yoga teacher training June 2013. The experienced was LIFE CHANGING! The website and pictures do NOT do the resort justice. It is absolutely magical.

If you need some time away to recover and recoup while having an amazing time, this is the place to go! The pictures don't do the place justice- it is amazing. I did the surf and yoga package and had an amazing time! I was a beginner at both and had a great experience. Could not recommend the place more...

The views are spectacular. The staff are wonderful, fun and helpful and will make your stay unique. The fresh, organic food is incredible. The yoga classes are beautiful and a peaceful, playful spirit infuses the whole experience. The photos barely do it justice. You must see for yourself.

If you are considering doing a teacher training or a week-long retreat, THIS is the place to do it. The view by itself is worth the trip, not to mention the pool, sauna, massages (Lindsey rocks!!), and the yoga is obviously amazing! I just completed a yoga teacher training there with Jackie in May 2013. My husband and I both...

I spent a full week at Anamaya in April and I can honestly say that it was the best place I have ever stayed in all of my travels. Everything was perfect, it was paradise. Anamaya is located on top of a hill above the small village of Montezuma overlooking a spectacular view of the Pacific Coast and surrounding mountains....

This was by far the coolest and most relaxing place I have been to. I did the yoga retreat and may have actually achieved nirvana there. Costa Rica is breathtaking on its own, throw in yoga twice a day, fabulous people (staff and fellow travelers), various adventures, excursions and the ambiance of Anamaya and it may just change your entire...

Easily one of my favorite places I've traveled to date. Started here on my long journey around Costa Rica and Nicaragua and was extremely spoiled not only with incredible gourmet, organic and local food prepared by their chef daily, but oustanding service and little extras i did not expect. The staff are genuinely happy to be there and to meet...

Anamaya is a luxury boutique hotel and yoga retreat center in the beautiful beach town of Montezuma, Costa Rica. We have the best view of any hotel in the area, and are right next door to famous Montezuma Falls, which is a 5 minute walk from our property.
