Healing Focus

In 2014 celebrity chef, best-selling author and health and wellness coach, Diana Stobo, founded The Retreat Costa Rica with the goal to create a transformational healing center where guests could escape their everyday lives in a nurturing and gentle environment.

Offering a truly transformational experience with three to 21-night packages available, The Retreat Costa Rica’s offering starts with food that is designed to heal the body and extends to its daily schedule of activities to build healthy new habits. From daily Yoga practice and cooking classes, edible spa treatments and customized packages for anti-stress, detox and weight loss, The Retreat Costa Rica inspires a rebalancing of mind, body and spirit.

The Vida Mia Healing Center and Spa focuses on the metaphysical powers of the crystal quartz mountain in which it is nested. The healing treatments, such as crystal infused therapies, volcanic clay baths, forest bathing, farm to spa rituals as well as modern aesthetic treatments, revolve around all healing modalities that can be found in the surrounding nature. Vida Mia is the only Ayurveda healing center in Costa Rica. In a matter of months after opening, the healing center and spa was voted Top Five Luxury Resort Spas in Mexico, Latin America and the Caribbean by Spa & Wellness Mexicaribe.

„The Retreat Costa Rica’s approach to healing is based on six core tenets: stress reduction, cultural involvement, gentle physical activity, spiritual connectedness, self-care and organic clean eating.“
  • Detox
  • Ayurveda
  • Lifestyle Coaching
  • Organic Cuisine


From the moment you step onto the property at The Retreat Costa Rica, your healing journey begins.

A little piece of “Heaven on Earth”, The Retreat Costa Rica inspires healthy living through its daily schedule. Every morning begins with yoga flow followed by guided nature walks discovering the 60 acres of mountains and valleys surrounding this peaceful escape. Afternoons include restorative yoga.

The Retreat’s holistic approach to healing is based on a philosophy of clean living through healthy eating. With food as the foundation of The Retreat’s wellness programs, the cooking classes, visits to organic farms, markets and artisans are all integral parts of the guest experience

Outside of The Retreat, there is also ample opportunity to enjoy a host of nature-based activities including hiking, bird watching, surfing, windsurfing and kite surfing.

To compliment this restorative experience, the concierge team curated tours and excursions highlighting.
