"A break in paradise"

The warm welcome, tranquility of the place, excellent yoga sessions morning and evening, the high quality massages and holistic treatments offered,the delicious food , relaxing ambiance . Certainly a place of paradise if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of life. I did not leave the retreat during my stay as I wanted to cherish every moment and slow down but Bob arranged trips for those who wanted to explore further.Jill and Bob’s kindness and welcome was above and beyond what was required of them . My precious memories of Ama Tierra and meeting such kind people has enriched my life. Thank you Bob and Jill!

Isabelle was amazing. Her voice, guidance and clarity during the yoga practice was perfect. The massage was one of the best I have ever had. The food was wonderful.

Bob and Jill were great hosts - they made sure to greet each guest and have actual conversations with us! I loved that this resort only had 10 rooms because it provided an intimate setting for getting to know everyone there. I'm glad that I chose AmaTierra as my first yoga retreat!

"Step away from what stresses you ....."

The peace and serenity at this retreat would be hard to better. It’s a place to enjoy nature at its finest whilst finding an inner calm doing a variety of yoga classes and eating fresh healthy food. You truly can just breathe the fresh clean air and feel rejuvenated.

I spent 6 nights in the AmaTierra Yoga retreat. Bob an Jill are both wonderful persons. I felt very welcome there and the atmosphere was so joyful and relaxing. The Yogastudio is stunning! The Detox was perfectly guided and i felt in good hands. I had a wonderful time and could relax and renew my energy. I would totally recommend this place, it will change your life.

"Amazing Solo Trip! "

Everything. I haven’t taken a trip like this before and this surpassed expectations, setting the bar high. Definitely one for the books! Cannot wait to go back and for a longer stay.

"Ambience, Food, Yoga, Trips"

Amatierra has a great ambience-very peaceful, lush green surroundings with sounds of nature all day, all night long.

The food was deliciously prepared and catered to the individual preferences of the guests.

Kelly and Jill were great yoga instructors who led us through gentle, Hatha yoga poses and meditation.

We took several excursions including the Pas falls, The Catrera National park, the coffee plantation and the Jaco beach. The drivers and guides were competent, friendly. and knowledgeable. Also, access to Amatierra from the airport was easy.

The resort was perfect, food was amazing, the people were so beautiful. I found myself at peace as soon as I got there. All the services were spot on. I really couldn't have asked for a better experience.

"Amazing Yoga retreat for Solo traveler"

Loved the atmosphere, the location and the overall experience.

The schedule of the yoga classes and mediation classes was just perfect and it was great to kind of have a scheduled day more or less without it being toooo stressfully scheduled and having the time to read, relax, dip in the pool, take a nap

i was very hesitant going in this by myself but came out of it definitely relaxed and having met a great group of friends!

Owners Bob and Jill are very welcoming and so is the entire staff. Vanessa , our yoga instructor was just perfect ! i had almost zero experience in yoga, so definitely a beginner & this experience made me love it even more. It really was a physical and emotional experience. My favorite spot in the resort was definitely the Yoga Studio and hanging by the pool and reading a book on one of the hammocks in the property.

Food was fresh & very flavorful as fruits and veggies are all organic! Lunch was the only one that was not very filing but i believe it was overall part of the wellness and health offering and i personally didn't mind it at all!

I did some excursions such as Carara National Park, beach and the Waterfalls . Waterfalls were a magical experience in my opinion. Really a must do!

Overall, I really loved this experience and felt so much better coming out of it and with great positive vibes!

Thank you so much for this exceptional welcome and experience, didn't want it to end! Hopefully will get to escape once more another time!! Namaste!

"Best Trip Ever"

There is no other way to describe Amatierra other than paradise! I felt as if I was in the Garden of Eden. It was so peaceful and so beautiful. The overall experience appealed to all of my senses. The physical beauty of the place is indescribable, you wake up to birds chirping outside your window; your sense of touch is delighted as the warm breeze brushes against your face and body as you engage in your yoga stances in the open air yoga studio (which is the most beautiful studio I have ever seen). Your lungs are cleared and there is absolutely nothing to smell are seated at your dining table. This experience I really cannot describe. I appreciate fine dining and am new to the vegan world. I am from New York and the juxtaposition with those two worlds can mesh seamlessly. However, when I described myself and my friends as vegan (when I communicated with Bob -the owner) and he indicated they can accommodate our vegan diet. I expected that! An accommodation only -which I translated to healthy, unappetizing food. However, the chef at Amatierra is AMAZING!!! the food will have your taste buds dancing. The views are spectacular, Bob's music selections are divine. The massage is relaxing. The overall experience can only be described as spiritual - if you allow yourself to relax, unwind and really take in the experience that they offer.

"Erholung pur"

Ich wurde sehr freundlich aufgenommen und hab mich von Anfang bis Ende sehr wohl gefühlt. Jill und Bob und das gesamte Team kümmern sich hervorragend um die Gäste.

Es war eine wunderschöne erholsame Auszeit. Kann ich jedem nur empfehlen! Vielen herzlichen Dank!!
