My week spent at Blue Spirit was above and beyond what I expected. The setting is beautiful, the staff were wonderful in every way and the food was exceptional. The chef prepared vegetarian cuisine that was fresh and exciting every day. My Hermitage Room in the main building was perfectly clean and very comfortable. My week long "Holistic Detox" was...

An amazing place, on a hillside, by the ocean. Very luxurious and extraordinarily designed and developed. Tranquil, beautiful, and clean. I had to change rooms because of an invasion of bees, and (obviously) wasn't allowed to go in and re-pack everything myself. The young man who moved my belongings did a spectacular job of packing and unpacking everything, setting up...

Beautiful retreat centre near Nosara. Food was excellent as were the smoothies and juices from the cafe. I was in a Hermitage room which was prefect for one person. Room very clean and good air conditioning. Room serviced every day. Work rooms and studios were beautiful. Staff were helpful. There is no laundry service and as I was staying for...

So, this is a great place, but I do think much of how you relate to the place will depend on your group retreat. We had the entire place, so there was a great sense of community built. I wonder if it would be the same way with multiple smaller retreats running concurrently. My retreat was truly phenomenal, and for...

Last year, at this time, after my first visit, I found absolutely nothing negative about my stay at Blue Spirit retreat center. This year was different. I'm reluctantly offering up mixed reviews. My stay both years was in connection with a dance retreat in February. The issues that seem to trip up the resort could be easily fixed. Two years...

Where people and nature live in harmony. Where the body is able to express itself in all its full potential. Where the mind can relax into quiet and stillness. Where respect for each other and for mother Earth is evident and relevant. Where food comes straight from its source in its natural package and could be discarded to go back...

Breathtakingly beautiful beachfront property - the best parts were the food and my morning strolls along the beach before yoga in the warm sunshine! The staff were all super helpful and accommodating. My only pointer is that if you want to go out a lot in Nosara, you will not be walking distance to anything here. They can arrange taxis...

I was at Blue Spirit attending a one week Omega seminar. It was run like clockwork and the staff were polite and warm and very attentive. The actual resort is very unique and absolutely gorgeous. There are little places to sit by yourself to stare at the incredible views or to watch the howler monkeys in the trees. There is...
