I expected a basic lodge. Instead I found a castle. Not only is the place just magical, but all the people working and living here are just beautiful. Thanks for letting me feel like a queen in your castle.
First of all, they grow their own vegetables, among many other things, on the property! Which makes all the food fresh and amazing! A special THANK YOU to the Chefs and the Staff, WOW!!! As we ascended up the hill, our location gave new meaning to "off the beaten path." Welcome to Selva Armonia! A beautiful hidden haven away from any tourism, yet close enough to everything you need.
Sensational location, great staff, divine yoga deck, epic views, yummy vegan food, lush forest, cool people, lovely pool, magical vibes! I would recommend this place to everyone! I can't wait to return to enjoy this slice of paradise.
Selva Armonía Retreat Center was as much of an inspiration for Envision Festival, as the festival was an inspiration for what Selva has transformed into. Envision was created to inspire our audience to live in harmony with nature and inspired to be your greatest self. The Festival is a showcase of what is possible, Selva Armonía is the permanent manifestation of that very concept.
With breathtaking ocean views from almost everywhere on the property, comfortable & charming lodging options, an epic swimming pool, open-air yoga temple, & communal areas to discover new friends & ideas, Selva Armonía offers a sustainable living solution that equally values style & comfort.
It is our intention to go above and beyond the guidelines set out by Costa Rica and the Health Department to give our retreat attendees a greater sense of comfort in our activities. We will be taking the following precautions to maximize the safety of the experience:
Hand sanitizers & handwashing sinks have been placed throughout the property and will be refilled regularly.

In the event that travel restrictions inhibit you from entering Costa Rica or from leaving your own country, you are entitled to a full refund. Refund requests can be processed by emailing email@example.com with your booking ID and proof of government imposed restrictions making you unable to travel.
Programming for The Escape Series requires advance deposits and as such we cannot offer refunds for any other circumstances.
Somewhere in between a hotel, retreat, and festival, The Escape Series sits at the crux of an entirely new lodging experience. Offering you the intimate programming and all-inclusive experience that you would expect from a retreat, with the added bonus of total flexibility to opt in or out of meals and activities at your leisure.
