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, equipped for your audio-visual needs. 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.”

I have created this retreat for Light Workers and Energy Healers to come together as a community for deeper healing in their own lives, for the expansion of their own gifts, and to reignite the passion for that sacred call to carry love and healing to the world.
A 5 night/5-day retreat led by art therapist Ella Dufrene & Yoga instructor Ryan Bean, in which you will expand awareness and deepen connections with Mother Earth. Eco-art therapy’s roots take us back to the prehistoric cave paintings, during a time were people intimately connected to their natural environments
Created and curated by Trauma Specialist Jimanekia Eborn, this retreat is for femmes of color who have experienced – and survived – sexual assault. This retreat honors a group of women that are constantly pushed to the side, overlooked, and over-sexualized by supporting them in their healing.
A body, soul, heart, and spirit 7-day immersive experience. For 6 nights and 7 days, you’ll only have to focus on one thing: claiming the life you want. I will guide you to navigate your journey beyond the physical body alone. You’ll learn how to live your life as your WHOLE self through mastery over your body, soul, heart, and spirit.
I know the pain of yearning for something and not being clear on the next steps to get it. At the Nourish Into Wholeness Retreat, you will not only access what you’re looking for – but unleash it.
You already have everything on the inside to live a purposeful, healthy, and free life. We will help you tap into it all. Because when you transform from the inside, you won’t be reliant on the external guidance of others.
Instead, you’ll become your own compass. And begin to experience TRUE autonomy.
