I spent a week during the New Year's Eve, and it was an amazing experience. The food is delicious, they have potable water everywhere, it's a calm and peaceful place to stay. The beach is beautiful, The sunset at the beach is awesome! The jungle with monkeys allover makes you feel in a forest.

Beautiful environment, lovely staff, awesome retreat center. We've come three times over New Years week to lead chanting and yoga retreats. Everyone has been sublime. In fact, they've gotten better and better it's completely healing resort. Highly recommended.

I've visited and led Wellness and Yoga retreats at Blue Spirit every January for the past four years. The journey isn't too far from New York and other major cities, and yet it feels very remote. The facilities are top notch, with wonderful classrooms, a beautiful open air dining room and common areas overlooking the ocean. Hermitage rooms in the main building are perfect for a single person or couple, with a private bath and overlooking the jungle. The staff is friendly and eager to help. The food is amazing, utilizing varieties of fresh local produce and fish. I love the grounds at Blue Spirit which are filled with howler monkeys and birds. We conclude each day of the retreat down at the beach watching the sun set over the Pacific Ocean. My retreat participants are always thrilled, and many return year after year.

Just returned from leading a yoga retreat at Blue Spirit and have already booked for next year! Blue Spirit is an amazing retreat center and the perfect place to deepen your yoga practice. Blue Spirit's stunning natural environment, delicious healthy food, beautifully designed facilities and warm supportive staff made for an unforgettable week with new and old friends.

 I led a retreat to Blue Spirit in January 2015. The grounds were luscious, the food was delicious, and the staff were super friendly and attentive. Blue Spirit has clearly discovered what it takes to provide the ideal setting for a retreat. We will be back next year.

I have been leading yoga retreats at Blue Spirit for several years. Blue Spirit uniquely combines a beautiful natural setting, amazing healthy food with gluten free options at every meal, yoga rooms that are set within the beautiful landscape, breathtaking views of the ocean and a staff is friendly and knowledgable. Not to mention the massage therapists who are truly healing. Cant wait for my retreat next year.

This is probably the most peaceful, most beautiful, most restorative and most perfectly balanced place I've been to in my life.

I don't have the right words to express our appreciation. We only received compliments and smiles at Blue Spirit. Thanks so much for creating and holding this space for our practice. The support and energy of your staff is priceless.

My experience at Omega ~ Blue Spirit was indescribably wonderful. The campus is so beautifully and thoughtfully designed, and its every aspect promotes happiness, tranquility, relaxation, and deep inner work. Despite being so far from home, I feel as though I came home to myself during the program; it more than lived up to Omega's tagline "awakening the best in the human spirit".

Blue Spirit seemed to run flawlessly, and the staff were all so kind. Bravo to Stephan and his team! We also loved meeting and working with Steven. What a kind, caring, and interesting human, and a delightful qi gong teacher! The intimate setting at Blue Spirit was wonderful in permitting us access to the faculty.

I came with my mother and sister, and we hope to be back many more times in the future!

The best retreat center that I've ever been to in my life, I've never been so much at peace.

The Choose Again experience at Blue Spirit was a truly transformational experience. The program was life-changing, the resort and area were gorgeous, the food was amazing and the staff was top-notch. I would most certainly go back! 

~ Angie Byrd,

Blue Spirit is like a pocket of bliss nestled within one of the most beautiful places on Earth. The facilities were absolutely beautiful, food was delicious and varied, and the staff was 100% available and always eager to be of service. I definitely plan on visit Blue Spirit sometime again.

I had a truly wonderful time. It was very peaceful and beautiful. What a perfect place to do yoga. I loved that it was off the beaten path and that I felt really one with nature. The grounds were kept beautifully clean and the staff from groundsmen and cleaners, to massage therapist and front desk staff, were all so friendly and helpful. You all helped to make my stay magnificent. I loved that during yoga practice, I was surrounded by nature and the sounds were the perfect background for meditation. Because I was involved in power yoga, I looked forward to my outdoor shower often! What a wonderful addition. I would definitely recommend the Nature cottages to anyone who is coming to stay. Away enough that you feel you are in your own space and able to think about the experience in nature, yet close enough to feel a part of the resort. Thanks for helping to make my journey and experience so special.

Thank you so much for all your help throughout the week! I honestly felt SO much better throughout the week while on the cleanse. My whole being lit up as I felt lighter yet stronger throughout my day. The cleanse along with the wonderful environment helped balance my mind, body, and spirit. I am a new me! Thank you!!

"I had a wonderful week at Blue Spirit and I'm so glad I participated in the Cleanse program. I felt great and learned some excellent guidelines for healthy living. I had not planned on participating, but after learning that I could still eat many of the foods offered at lunch and dinner, the choice became obvious. Even during the daily morning fast I was able to participate fully in 2hr. yoga practice without feeling hungry. In fact, as the week progressed I felt stronger and more alert. 

Thank you so much for your support and encouragement during the week. You were always there with a smile, every step of the way.

Hope to see you next year!"

- Lee

P.S. Although not exactly part of the plan, and never mentioned as a goal, I managed to loss the 10 lbs. that I had hoped to loss "before"
coming to Blue Spirit.

It is apt that Blue Spirit would offer a detox program that would bring your body into balance with its natural health. The retreat center is a sanctuary for the spirit and the body available, accesible and allowable to experience full out health. With the facilitation of the chef, Sofia who guides you through the whole process and the staff who are on point with delivery, Stephan has created a perfect and needed detox program to kick start you to healthy habits, eliminating sugar cravings and food addictions.
I am grateful to the full experience of nourishing my body, nurturing my soul and reviving my spirit.

“I am very appreciative of the effort that went into the Cleanse. I feel great and clearly a beneficiary of the Cleanse.”

“Thanks for a great program. It was nice to be off sugar and bread for a week. No chocolate, gah! Stephan was there to give an overview when we signed-up. Sofia was great, always there to answer questions; answers included NO a lot. Ha! But there was plenty of good food to eat. Again, thanks.”

- Mike

"Thank you so much for guiding us in the Cleanse experience. It was a wonderful opportunity for both of us and we appreciate all you and your staff did to make it easy and delicious!
Thank you for this good guidance for continuing the benefits of what we have already received.
Pura Vida!"
