Beautiful property a short bike ride from Hermosa Beach. Super safe and friendly atmosphere. Can you bring your expensive laptop, camera equipment, electronics and feel completely safe about it??? Yes, 110% safe. The AC cranks in the rooms at night so you can get a cool nights sleep on a nice mattress with soft sheets. Hot showers with soap, shampoo and conditioner provided. Rooms are cleaned everyday with new towels provided. Pool is cleaned daily and is sooo refreshing on these hot summer days. Now the food... ohh the food! I am craving it now just thinking about it. Everything is made fresh and is so tasty. The kitchen staff is amazing. they get there early to work on breakfast. As soon as breakfast is over they start lunch, and then dinner. Non-stop cooking and cleaning until the day is over. The owner set up a quadruple, filtered hydration station that provides the cleanest drinking water in all of Costa Rica. I was blown away by everything going in this place and I am sure it will only get better. The owner is the kind of person who will be constantly upgrading and renovating to keep the spot in tip top shape.

There are not enough words to express how wonderful this experience was! Sean & the Vida Asana staff go above and beyond. As a female solo traveler it was comforting to feel so welcomed and have every detail taken care of- from the transportation to and from the airport, the amazing food, yoga, and excursions. Couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to surround myself with. Until next time!

I really enjoyed my stay at this small yet beautiful property. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, everything is cleaned and sanitized regularly. I felt very safe staying especially during these times. Every meal is freshly prepared, I am sad that I can't get that at home. The pool is so blue and cleaned regularly, our room was cleaned and mopped everyday. I really LOVED the toiletries in the bathroom. The soaps, shampoo and conditioner worked and smelled so good and natural. Every meal though similiar with rice and beans everyday they managed to put a super cool twist on it. My favorite dinner was the quinoa and eggplant lasanga. I'm still trying to figure out how they made eggplant taste sooooo GOOD. Sean the owner has built a beautiful retreat space. This was my first yoga retreat ever and he made us feel like we were part of his home and family. I hope to come back one day very soon!

Where do I even begin? From the moment you arrive at Vida Asana it's truly magical. This is not a hotel and you can't put a star rating on it, because Vida Asana is in a league of its own. Every person you meet at Vida Asana - from the owner Sean, to the office staff, yoga teachers, kitchen staff, cleaning staff etc. makes you feel like part of a family. This place is run with love and it shows in literally everything, including the decor of the rooms (and cleanliness), the beauty of the grounds, the yoga shalas, the food (OMG the food!!!) and the way the place is laid out to create a community experience where it's easy for people to connect. I've met many amazing people at Vida Asana and enjoyed wonderful experiences with them, including a traditional temazcal ceremony, surf lesson, and hike through the beautiful rainforest, - all arranged for by the amazing office staff Maria and Laurene. The twice daily yoga classes are taught by some of the best yoga teachers I've met and take place in beautiful outdoor locations surrounded by the jungle. I could go on and on... My 6 day retreat at Vida Asana was truly transformational and I can't wait to come back.

In April 2021, I had amazing and recharging days at Vida Asana. I was searching for some me-time to process the past years and get more clarity on my next life steps, and got it all. :-) This magic can happen because of the team, together. They are a golden group of individuals! Simply stated, they walk the talk! Vida Asana is much more than a place to relax and unwind. There is a vibrant spirit of love, friendship, no judgement, generosity, peace and respect. The team always bear in mind that everyone's needs are different and - as a result of that - enable all newcomers to live their own experience. I will always keep close to me the sound of birds in the morning, the kindness of all yoga teachers, the taste of all meals, the sweat lodge experience and the sunset by the beach. Should my way cross the region again, I will surely come back again!
