I reluctantly went to The Pearl with my wife (who had been there solo last year). After a week I was a changed man (and 9lbs lighter!). I was reluctant at first since it was a week of no meat, alcohol and nicotine. The Pearl is a hiking, yoga, spiritual, cleansing retreat. I'm new to yoga and found it a...

The Pearl Laguna allows for an escape from the world's hamster wheel. The week was filled with rigorous yoga in the morning, a challenging hike in the afternoon, a daily massage!, and gentle evening yoga that was one of the most relaxing experiences I have ever had. The food is pure and delicious. And then there is the Pearl team,...

My wife and I spent a week here doing the detoxification program. It includes great physically demanding hikes, yoga morning and night, a nice afternoon relaxation period, daily massage and great healthy food. By week's end we were completely relaxed, but also physically and mentally reinvigorated. Understand, you don't get much to eat- but what you do get is completely...

I am so blessed to have experienced The Pearl twice, since they opened. It transformed my health, both physically and emotionally. The staff, the beauty, Katresha and Geo, the activities are all incredible. The food was lovingly handcrafted with care. The massage therapists were top notch. Fresh flowers, essential oils, blissful yoga, great company, every last detail was delightful. I...

I spent a wonderful week at the Pearl Laguna in late August of 2016. It was exceptional. Fantastic food, fantastic service, and an incredibly well thought out program. As others have commented, the food is beautiful and delicious (thank you Katresha!). The daily hikes keep your body working hard, while the daily yoga, massages, and sauna provide the perfect balance...

Escape to The Pearl! There's no place like the "pearl" Geo and Katresha created. It's nestled in the hills of Laguna, it's a quiet oasis offering all the components for restoring total quality of health, spiritually, physically and mentally: Fabulous hiking trails for all levels of hikers, amazing spa and daily massages, absolutely delicious food ... while minimal, and yoga...

I've been to a wide assortment of retreats and high-end spas on my own and wanted a nice place my husband and I could go and have a healthy week to recharge together, without a cast of thousands. The Pearl did a fine job of satisfying our needs. It is small - approx 12 guests max - and is up...

If Geo and his wife are not there the staff is rude of course when they arrive everything changes. They themselves I find a bit affected, Geo I found to be overly flirty. Some rooms nicer than others.

Of the ten other guests that were with you that week, six were returning guests who book with us often. We’re sorry that our retreat was not for you. Our guests come to cleanse and the food is monitored. We made special vitamin protein shakes for you, extra nuts were provided for your hike and food was available anytime you...
