During this retreat, you will be staying at Luna Lodge. Amid the tropical rainforest of Costa Rica, sit their accommodation options of eight bungalows, two haciendas, and seven platform tents.

There is no stagnant water on property keeping the Luna Lodge virtually mosquito-free.

Luna Lodge is committed to protecting, preserving, and raising awareness about the rainforest. Whether taking one of their nature hikes, leading a retreat, celebrating your wedding, birdwatching, practicing yoga, or enjoying a therapeutic massage at the Luna Spa, the Luna Lodge truly is a unique experience not found elsewhere in Costa Rica or in the world.

Each accommodation in Luna Lodge is beautifully situated in the rainforest and offers breathtaking views from the outdoor sitting areas. Eco-friendly soap, shampoo, and conditioner are available in each room, as well as a drying line for bathing suits and beach towels.

Nature lover tents

The seven completely enclosed nature-lover tents have two single beds or one double bed, a private bathroom with hot water, electricity, and a balcony overlooking the canopy of the rain forest. Some think the tents have the best view on the property as the majority of them are situated at the top of the hill above the yoga platform.

    "Hoping to try yoga out for a lark, Korrie and Lokaii introduced me to the true benefits of practicing yoga. Always encouraging and welcoming, I discovered, and am still discovering, the true benefits of practicing yoga in the deeply sweet and caring Lokaii community. With every mindful breathe I am deepening my awareness. Not only awakening my body as was my goal, but also enjoying the journey, the newfound awareness of just breathing. Korrie and Tony have created a cornerstone hearth of warmth and light in the community where I feel at home and am free to expand, free to breathe, free to fully grow. "

  • Beoordeling van Winsome D.

    "Costa Rica Retreat was in a word ‘AWESOME’!! It was inspiring from the moment we started our trip to Luna Lodge. Flying over the lush green landscape and along the shoreline, the view was amazing. Once in the Osa Peninsula, it was another jaw dropping ride to Luna Lodge where we were given a warm welcome and shown our bungalows for the week. Our days were packed with three awesome meals, activities, exercise, yoga (oh the view), surfing, hiking, zip lining and we still had time to relax – lay about by the pool, in a hammock, in a rocking chair or have a nap. You will be amazed by nature on this trip. All arranged by Lokaii…great job guys!!"

  • Beoordeling van Jessica Shriftman

    "No need to even think twice about booking with Lokaii. I have done both the Costa Rica and Machu Picchu retreat and can’t recommend them enough. Tony and Korrie, the founders, do so much leg work and research beforehand to create impeccable and thoughtful itineraries from morning to night. What’s great about booking with them is that all you have to do is say yes, book your flight, and then every detail of your trip is already done and you can guarantee it will be amazing."

    "For Costa Rica, we stayed in this incredible high end eco friendly lodge in the middle of the rainforest. It was a chance to get off the technology grid and connect to nature in a way you can only see in netflix documentaries. Literally the howler monkeys will wake you up in the morning. The meals were fantastic and all the day trips- from hiking, surfing, zip lining, massages and yoga in the majestic land were incredible. The whole trip package is such a well rounded way to experience the Costa Rican rainforest."

    "With Machu Picchu, Lokaii removed all the stress of finding hotels, booking tour guides, hike guides, and getting permits- all that was taken care of. It was truly the trip of a lifetime, one where you get to discover how strong you are mentally and physically while surrounding yourself with breathtaking sights. Korrie and Tony thought through every detail of the trip meticulously including booking us a 5 star hotel for our final day of the hike where we finally got to shower, sleep in a real bed, eat a three course meal and get pampered- absolutely genius idea. Everything they included in their Peru travel package from the day you arrive to the day you leave is wonderful."

    "Korrie and Tony are salt of the earth human beings, and they help you be more human thanks to how grounded they are to nature, community and mental wellness. Both retreats were trips of a lifetime and couldn’t have been without their care taking and attention to detail."

  • Beoordeling van Anne Girvan

    "I attended the first ever Costa Rica retreat at Luna Lodge in December 2015. This amazing opportunity couldn’t have come at better time in my life as I had just gone through a marriage separation after 20+ years of marriage as well as some minor surgery just weeks prior. I figured that after raising my 2 adult kids who are now 20 & 22, it was time to do something for myself! I deserved it! I’ve been to the all-inclusive “eat, relax and drink” resorts so this time, I was determined to kick it up a notch!"

    "Luna Lodge was amazing, the sounds are forever memorable and the view was breath-taking! Words will never describe that experience. The hikes and yoga sessions were challenging enough that there was a great sense of great accomplishment at the end of each night. We also learned a lot along the way from the knowledgeable guides. I can’t rave enough about the food! I still start my day with fresh fruit that will never compare to what was just picked locally in the surrounding gardens and trees."

    "Tony and Korrie did a great job picking this spectacular location and ensured the activities were well planned. I enjoyed every second, I made some great friends and I will be jealous of everyone who follows in our eco friendly footsteps….."

    "I started training with Tony Gammer almost a year ago. I went to him with 30lbs to lose that I had been struggling with for the past few years. When I first met Tony, his cheerful and positive attitude was a huge clue that I had made the right decision in taking on a personal trainer. The workouts he designed were unique and enjoyable with the perfect amount of challenge. I never got bored with our workouts and Tony encouraged and motivated me through every activity. Not only did I lose fat and gained muscle tone, I learned so much about fitness. Working with Tony was how I came to my decision to pursue a career in the fitness industry. I am 100% delighted with the decision I made a year ago, and anyone who works with Tony will know how lucky they are after just one session!"

    "Working out with Tony is joyful. Tony is a smart and creative trainer man. He makes you to try harder than you taught possible and he pushes you when you are about to give it up. He helps you to change your wrong eating habit and transfer your body forever."

    "I lost fat and added muscles in a couple of months by his help, and I am stronger and more confident now. I would say there is nothing better than having a fit body and if you want to stop dreaming and make it happen, Tony is the one who make it possible and fun for you."
