The Retreat Costa Rica is an adults-only spa and relaxation hotel conceived by wellness expert and chef Diana Stobo.
Located in the town of Atenas—known for its year-round spring-like climate—The Retreat is only 45 minutes by car from San Jose’s international airport. Because this hotel is catered to adults, the minimum age requirement is 16.
The Retreat’s Boca Dulce Restaurant emphasizes fresh, nutritionally-dense ingredients. The menu is farm-to-fork, without gluten, dairy, or refined sugars.
The 13 airy guest rooms are simply and elegantly designed to calm the mind and relax the senses. Each residence is unique, and named for a special plant or food grown on the property.
Rooms at The Retreat Costa Rica have no telephones or televisions, so as not to disturb the peaceful, natural surroundings. Large windows draw guests outdoors to appreciate the views and birdsong.
The crisp bed linens are organic, as are the all-natural bath amenities.
