Luxury Wellness Retreat at Hacienda Pinilla Resort


The ultimate mind, body and spirit holistic experience



Replenish your mind, body and spirit with our holistic approach to wellness in our “Wellness  Retreat”.  We have arranged the schedule with some planned activities that are included in the price of the package, and we also have allowed you plenty of  ‘free’ time to pick and choose what you want to do, with ‘optional activities’ available in the Hacienda resort that are your own choices. In this way, you can design your free time according to your own personal preferences.  Some of the optional activities have an additional cost.


During our Wellness Retreat, you will discover the spiritual, mental and physical benefits of stretching and toning your body with yoga and the pilates system of exercises. These sessions are included in the package.  There is also an opportunity to pamper yourself with a deep body massage – one of two spa treatments included in the package. And one afternoon will be spent on board a catamaran sailboat – also included.  More details on this are in the itinerary.


For some free time optional activities, you can go swimming or surfing in our pristine coastal waters, go jogging or horseback riding along three miles of sun drenched beaches; try surfing or scuba diving; or you can play some tennis or swim in the hotel pool. And if you are a golfer, there is an 18 hole world class course on the property. 


When you want a break, you can just relax in your room, and take a nap, or indulge yourself in a relaxing spa treatment, have a snack and enjoy a cool drink, or try any of the amenities the resort has to offer. In the evening you can watch the awesome beauty of the sun slipping slowly behind the horizon of the Pacific Ocean.

The town of Tamarindo is only 20 minutes by car from the Hacienda, and there you can join tours for sport fishing, rafting, or to visit some of our national parks and active volcanoes.  A special discount will apply if you book these tours through us.


You can enjoy all of this in a breathtakingly beautiful and restful tropical paradise. By the end of this 8 day retreat you will be a completely new person, energized and rejuvenated.


Costa Rica is called the “Switzerland of the Americas and it’s people are kind, warm hearted and hospitable. Temperatures average around 85 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit year around. The country is a democracy and English is spoken throughout the Hacienda Pinilla Resort. It is easily accessible with daily flights to and from the United States and Europe.


Breakfast is included in the Wellness Retreat package every day, but lunch and dinner are on your own, so that outside of the few planned daily activities, you will be free to come and go as you choose on the 4,500 acres of the Hacienda complex.


The Hacienda boasts five pristine beaches on three miles of coastline, offering a variety of water sports, including surfing, snorkeling, fishing, hiking and horseback riding. 


At ‘The Stable’, over 40 horses are available for horseback tours along 6 kilometers of totally natural trails, along rivers and a lake, or a trot on the beach at Langosta Beach. An equestrian school is also connected to the Stable. Other activities range from bird watching to surfing and scuba diving.


In addition to the La Posada 5 star Hotel there are private villas and houses that can be rented.  La Posada provides a variety of services including a restaurant, a bar, a relaxing pool for swimming and a shuttle to the beach and golf course.
