The room will be cleaned daily. The main building includes a large open living space and seating area, a bar, a barbecue grill, a sound system, free Wi-Fi, and a fully equipped kitchen. The swimming pool measures more than 1200 square feet. It can be used 24 hours a day and is attractively illuminated at night.

At its longest point, the pool measures 45 feet and is between 4.6 and 5.3 feet deep. There is no lifeguard on duty or any special safety devices for children, so CaribeYoga recommends that only adults and children who know how to swim make use of the pool. Please use it at your own risk.

Program

Who does not want to come home deeply and thoroughly refreshed from a long-awaited and well-deserved vacation? You will recharge your batteries, enjoy life to the fullest, broaden your horizons, and simultaneously do something good for your body. A yoga holiday can be a wonderfully satisfying combination for body, mind, and soul. Leave the daily routine behind and treat yourself with an intense experience under palm trees - a yoga retreat in the Dominican Republic far away from the hustle and bustle of cities, amid the spectacular, and diverse nature of the Caribbean.

Yoga is a practice that will adapt to you, not the other way around. This retreat is specially created to convey the fact that yoga is so much more than just a posture. Everybody is welcome regardless of skill level, even if they have never done yoga before. Anyone who would like to have a personal practice, customized to their preferences, will benefit greatly from this experience. Even those who are already on an advanced level (that would like something more challenging than a normal yoga class) can benefit from learning how to live the philosophy of yoga in their daily life.

During this retreat, you will live an experience to harmonize your body and soul. Totally unwind, let your mind go, and relax while your body immersed in the perfect combination of restfulness and motion-free from external influences. This retreat offers daily yoga practices and interaction with the yoga instructors and like-minded fellow travelers in the incredible picture landscapes. Yoga is rather a way of life which is about compassion, mindfulness, and truthfulness.

The atmosphere on this retreat is quiet and, except for the daily yoga hours, your time is your own to read, swim, sleep, and enjoy. Much emphasis is placed on healthy, diverse, and fresh food to accompany the experience. The yoga classes will be suitable for beginners, intermediates, and advanced learners.

Included excursions

Beach day Playita

This is a beautiful beach to spend a moment of tranquility and enjoy nature with fresh coconut and pineapple. This is one of the nicest beaches in the world. Quiet waters, very low key, this is the dream beach you are looking for. You can enjoy a perfect day in a clean place far from the piles of trash you see everywhere.

River tubing

During this retreat, you will take part in the lazy river tubing through the beautiful landscape. You will meditate while going down the river through Dominican nature. You will be able to relax and clear your mind while enjoying the beautiful mangrove forest. The mangrove is an endemic specie of the island used in many ways by the natives before the colonial times. In the end, you will arrive at Playa Rincon, which is a three-mile-long, white sandy beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the Dominican Republic. On this beach, you will have the perfect spot to finish this adventure.

Retreat location

The retreat will take place in Las Galeras, the Dominican Republic. Away from the crowds of tourists and surrounded by marvelous nature, you can find the Samaná Ocean View Eco-Lodge. Here is a perfect retreat for dreamers, people seeking peace and quiet, yogis, and meditators from all kinds of all methods and schools. The Samaná Ocean View Eco-Lodge is located on top of a hill near the village of La Guázama and the idyllic fishing town Las Galeras on the Samaná peninsula.

This spot is widely recognized as the most beautiful region of the Dominican Republic, primarily due to the thousands of coconut trees and the many pristine beaches. The closest beaches are Playa Grande (the main beach in Las Galeras) and the especially beautiful beach, Playita. Both can be reached within 15 minutes by car or motorbike. It is also close by is the beach Playa Rincon, a three-mile-long, white sandy beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the Dominican Republic.

From Las Galeras, you can reach it within 25 minutes by car or within 15 minutes by boat. There is also Playa Fronton, a perfect snorkeling spot. This Robinson Crusoe beach with its impressive panorama can be reached with a 30-minute hike, or by boat, or horse (not accessible by car). The small romantic bay with its natural beach Playa Madame is also within reach either by boat or by horse. Las Galeras, with its small supermarkets, restaurants, and beach huts, can be reached within 15 minutes by car.

Here, you can drink Dominican rum together with the locals or book a boat trip with the local fishermen. For those who want to discover the beauty of the Samaná peninsula independently, a rental car would be most suitable. But those who prefer to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere at the Samaná Ocean View Eco-Lodge can easily get around with taxis and so-called 'Motoconchos' (motorbike taxi) procured for you by the property manager. You will experience the genuine Caribbean and pure relaxation.

Every year, more than 1000 humpback whales migrate from the polar regions into the Bay of Samaná for mating season. From mid-December to the end of March, you can observe this great spectacle directly from the Samaná Ocean View Eco-Lodge. There are also regular boat excursions from Las Galeras if you prefer a closer look.
