Anamaya Resort is truly an exotic retreat and wellness resort, built on a cliff edge and overlooking the most incredible ocean views. The resort is a few steps away from epic waterfalls surrounded by rainforests and located in one of the world’s most beautiful tropical beach towns.
“Anamaya” is Sanskrit for “good health” and that is their focus. This unique retreat center offers gourmet organic food, yoga teacher trainings, several types of yoga classes and yoga retreats, a variety of luxurious spa services, and an array of uniquely designed retreat packages, and workshops all in respect to the body, mind and spirit.
The easiest way to get to Anamaya is from Tambor airport. You can take a short 20-minute fight from San Jose International Airport to Tambor and then a 30-minute ride to reach the retreat. The other option is to take the shuttle from San Jose. Approximate travel time is 5.5 hours including a ferry ride into Puntarenas. While it might take a bit more time to reach Anamaya than other locations, this stunning region of the Nicoya Peninsula is a tropical paradise worth the journey.
