Transformational retreats and group experiences in eco-luxury with plant-based cuisine



Imiloa Institute Costa Rica is a 22 acre jungle and ocean oasis, sleeping 15 to 44 guests for transformational retreats and group experiences, nestled in the Savegre Mountains just outside Dominical, Costa Rica. 

We believe that through a spirit of service and a posture of learning, we can cause the individual and social transformation of the planet and build stronger communities as a result. 

Imiloa is a home and an experience where all living beings are welcomed to awaken their consciousness in service and harmony to ourselves and the planet

Partnering with Imiloa, allowing our team to be the COO (Chief Operating Officer) of your transformational retreat, educational workshop or luxurious corporate get to-together, and you’ll discover a whole new sense of peace and prosperity. The guest experience is un-matched and best-in-class (4.9 overall out of 5 from thousands of guests).   


It’s been a lifelong journey to get to this moment at Imiloa Institute.

Immerse yourself in high-end facilities and a full service center of evolutionary transformation. Host your next transformational retreat, international workshop, or corporate off-site with 16 five-star ensuite accommodations, complete with gourmet plant-based cuisine, and an experienced operations team that becomes the “COO” of your retreat at the chosen home-away-from-home retreat center for the world’s leading masters, influencers and teachers.

17 Lux Accommodations allow for 15-44 occupancy depending on single, double or quad arrangements. At Imiloa, you’re in the driver’s seat. You choose how to organize and price each accommodation based on your event. 

Variety of accommodations including our 200 year old homes imported from the Java Islands, Bali, our gorgeous Sacred Geometrical Geodesic River Domes and our Waterfall Jungle Bungalows (“Jungalows”)

House of Masters: Each Imiloa has a House of Masters. It’s the global classroom. In Costa Rica, it’s a 250m² Balinese super-structure hanging 100 feet in the jungle. Often used for workshops, yoga, meditation, gatherings and dance parties.

Three salt water pools and spas overlooking the ocean.

Miles of jungle pathways that lead to our very own private waterfall

The “Heart” of Imiloa: This is at the center of the property. The space is where Chef Pedro dazzles, where groups eat and share time together. The space is a blended design honoring the indigenous of Costa Rica and imported Balinese pieces. “Heart” is 200m² of dining, multi-use, loungy and relaxation space. Perfect for break out sessions, dining, dancing, deepenings, relaxing or individual meditation and rejuvation.

“Working with Imiloa is like joining a family. I felt so supported and welcomed, from detailed advice that took away any anxiety, to warm hugs from everyone, and simple clarity in how we collaborate. The Imiloa experience is such a treat”

“Imiloa is one of a kind. It’s a mix of deep rooted nature with a waterfall included, and is also high end luxury. I fell in love with the entire team. The operations group is incredible and holds a needed and beautiful container of groundedness. The Chef changed the game in how I view vegan cuisine. It is the best food I’ve ever had in my life. Thank you.”

“Imiloa is a sacred and beautiful place. It provided rest for my soul and nourishment for my body unlike any I’ve ever experienced. I want to gather up all my friends and family and bring them with me to Imiloa the next time I go. That way, they’d get to experience the love and grace that I received during my time there. I can’t thank the Imiloa team enough for what they’ve created. Forever grateful.”
