Experience 5 Star facilities at imiloa
Many guests describe Imiloa as the “five-star barefoot” experience, including high-end facilities and luxury amenities designed to activate discovery and wonder in the hearts and minds of those who visit here.
Share your mastery
Open for connection and deepening in two extraordinary high-tech spaces perfect for workshops or trainings.
The Imiloa “Heart,” a large 200m² multi-use dining and chic lounge area sans internet (fiber optics run throughout the property elsewhere, though!) and “House of Masters”, a spectacular 250m² Balinese super-structure hanging 100 feet in the jungle.
You have access to all the necessary props, materials, food and water whatever time of day or night in either of these spaces. Imiloa handles every item, from touchdown to takeoff, so you are free to share your mastery with the world..
Immerse your body
Three salt water pools and spas overlook the ocean for poolside classes or soaking tired muscles at the end of the day.
Spa services for every size, shape, desire and budget are available. From blissful massage, to Thai yoga treatments with influence from Russian sistema martial arts, to facials and deeply relaxing practices.
Alternatively, you can descend down 300 stairs to bathe in a private waterfall in the middle of the untouched jungle.
Rest & Rejuvenate
Everyone will feel rejuvenated after a good night’s sleep in our luxurious, en-suite jungle accommodations.
We have 16 luxury en-suite accommodations, including 200-year-old homes imported from Bali on a cliff, Geodesic Domes deep in the jungle or our lush Waterfall Jungalows with semi-enclosed bathtub in the middle of the jungle.
Imiloa can host 15 to 40 individuals and room configuration is at your discretion, so your event can be designed to perfection. Single, double, triple or quad configurations are available.

At Imiloa we share the stage with one of the most sought after chefs in Central America, Chef Pedro.
Your group will enjoy an explosion of flavors prepared by Chef Pedro and the team. Inspired by ayurvedic and plant-based cuisine, menu collaboration is welcomed and your gathering will be nourished and transformed by the possibilities in Chef Pedro’s food.
