AmaTierra Retreat & Wellness Center Review
This destination’s prize possession is their open-air, hardwood yoga studio. The panoramic view from its treetop mountain perch spans across the Turrubares Valley, allowing nature to come forth as your primary healer. One connects deeply with this tropical oasis through yoga, meditation, mindfulness, and other holistic health practices.
Ultimately, this retreat aims to facilitate a connection between you and your peaceful inner-self – leaving your mind, body, and soul rejuvenated. This is achieved through various classes and treatments including…
- Two daily Hatha Yoga classes
- Bodywork, including lymphatic and deep-tissue massages
- Abdominal chi-mover massages
- Myofascial release treatments
- Energy balancing
- Volcanic clay wraps
Nested amongst mongo and hardwood trees, AmaTierra’s 5 suites feel as if they are cradled by mother nature herself. Each morning, the resident birdlife chirp to bring the forest out of its slumber.
Waking up to this chirping is an experience, however, the layout of AmaTierra’s suites makes it truly special. The hardwood ceiling and decor feeds off the forests, bringing its ambient energy into the room. Furthermore, the suites have terraces for guests to enjoy the sights and sounds of the forest with their coffee.
The large tropical bathrooms have baths, as well as everything one would need to feel pampered. Ultimately, the rooms can be described as elegant and clean, but not luxurious. The idea is luxury by nature, with the resort’s minimalist design showcasing the property’s natural beauty.
With regards to food, AmaTierra will impress. As part of its holistic health and wellness program, the resort provides some of Costa Rica’s freshest food. The ingredients are grown organically by the local population, while the end product is usually a locally inspired gourmet dish Jamie Oliver would be proud of.
A further drawing card is the resort’s location. Tucked away on the outer slopes of San Jose’s Central Valley, AmaTierra is away from the hustle and bustle of the city, ensuring unrivalled tranquillity. However, it is also ideally situated for day trips to San Jose Province’s major attractions.
