"Paradise of Zen"
I booked this trip as a place to go and relax for a week and it completely exceeded my expectations - not only the retreat but also costa rica. The food was absolutely amazing and very tailored to our individual needs. The chefs were absolutely lovely ladies and always have a smile on their face and remind you to drink your juice and will even bring them to your room (if you choose to juice fast). The guards were also lovely as they had a few laughs and jokes with us about our fear of bugs and happy to come to your room at whatever hour to remove them if needed.
Fateh is very accommodating, very laid back and very insightful. I took away an abundance of good energy and ideas from my chats with fateh. Before this retreat, i had never thought deep about the spiritual side of yoga but this place has changed my tune.
The nearby waterfall is fun to relax in. I came home feel very relaxed and healthy.
Perfect spot to escape corporate america and relax.

"Juice cleanse, meditation, yoga, me time and weight loss!"
There was so much I wanted from this vacation and I was not disappointed.
I wanted to give my body a break from toxic foods, the craziness of everyday life and I wanted to re-connect with myself.
I selected the Waterfall Villas Wellness Retreat in Costa Rica because it offered a full 7-day juice cleanse, morning yoga classes with meditation, and a therapeutic massage with pure essential oils.
The fresh juice was delicious, and I came to crave it when hunger hit! Being away from junk food and temptations was the best thing I could have ever done.
Fateh (owner & yoga teacher) is beautiful inside and out and had a way of connecting with me during and after my yoga sessions. She was extremely thoughtful, caring and truly wanted to make sure I had a safe, relaxing and spiritual time at her retreat.
After 7 days I felt rested, healthy and rejuvenated. When I got home I weighed myself and I had lost 7 pounds - 2 inches off my waist, 1.5 inches off my hips and 1 inch off my thighs. My jeans fit again :)
Overall, it was a beautiful trip and I would recommend it to others.
Thank you so much Fateh and team! xo

"Yoga Retreat Juice Cleanse "
We were told the roads would be difficult terrain - they were not. Perfectly paved and lit, the trip from Manuel Antonio to Cascadas was a breeze. It was a bit difficult in the dark to find the entrance to the retreat, but it is doable.
We were fed a nice vegan meal upon arrival and began juicing the next morning. The security guard would give me cocunuts when I asked him too, and the cleaning staff was excellent as well as the kitchen staff.
Upon arrival, we were greeted by Tony, Fateh's assisted. We were not advised he would be taking care of us, but he was very attentive and helpful. He has sent me a tremendous amount of literature on spirital items as well as healthy recipes to continue to eat well.

"Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful! Transformative Relaxation"
The location is as beautiful as the pictures, the suite was lovely and bigger than I expected, the spa treatments were professional and transformative, the food--OMG--the food was incredible! I went for a 21 day detox and was supported and held from the moment I arrived until I left. Fateh arranged everything for me, and made adjustments on the fly for my whims. The food is incredible, this is the longest I have gone vegan and her wonderful chefs and recipes made it so easy. The staff was so helpful while I was on the juice fast, making sure I always had the next juice on schedule. The staff is also so incredibly nice, even the night guards who jump to the rescue for a small spider, I felt like family by the time I left. Fateh's contacts are great, she always provided the best tour guides. I found that the experience was exactly what is portrayed in the description and in the photos, and I loved every day here.

Fateh and her staff were attentive & thoughtful with amazing attention to detail. The vegan cuisine was out of this world! Watching Fateh in the kitchen was a lot of fun! She made sure to find out exactly what I wanted to get out of the cooking class and catered her teaching to the things that were important to me. I have already incorporated my new knowledge in my kitchen and my family loves! The setting (Cascade Waterfall Villa) was breathtaking, rooms were comfortable, serene environment, excellent setting for doing yoga and/or meditation. No wifi, but that was ok with me! Make sure to fit in a trip to Hacienda Baru or Nauyaca Waterfalls and/or other local fun adventures, all very close by!

"An amazing experience!"
The rainforest and waterfall sounds, peace and tranquility, learning so much from Fateh, the food, my villa, the staff, I was treated like a queen and felt so special!! Fateh has knowledge and connections that are limitless, so grateful for the whole life changing experience ❤️❤️
My experience at Cascadas Farallas was delightful, peaceful, and exceeded my expectations ....The whole environment was like a sanctuary in a jungle cocoon..
It is warm and a little humid but very comfortable. In the Bali style villa you are inside and outside at the same time ..it is designed so you are protected from the outside but since there are lots of windows and light you feel part of the outside .
My daughter and I took part of the kundalini yoga daily that was led by the owner and I still feel the wellness one week later ....!!
Fateh, the owner is kind to all her staff and has created the food menus and assists in the serving. She is gracious to her guests yet not intrusive..
The food is incredible! delicious, beautifully presented . Lots of variety from day to day but pretty much a set menu .. it is very healthy ..too
A few things to remember :
3 1/2 hour trip from the airport costs about $200 u.s.
Internet available at the beach for the price of a juice or coffee ..
Bus ride to the beach $1 and takes about 20 minutes
Bus goes 3 or 4 times a day ..
Would love to go again ...
from United States,
The purpose of my trip was to unplug and detox from my life as a 58 year old CFO. I was more than pleased with my experience over 8 days cleansing the diet beginning yoga, it was tough but it was at my pace leaving me with the desire to continue. Fateh is a great hostess and is involved in every aspect of the diet and yoga plan along with talks about the impact of our diet on the body that helps digest the changes needed. The waterfalls are great to meditate or just clear your mind and 4 massages /wraps.round out a great experience. It is intimate with under 8 suite in the jungle so you can escape or if you want more activities the beach and the parks are not far away. I may not continue the vegan diet but it will play are larger part in my future diet and well being as will the yoga.
