Costa Rica welcomes The Retreat at Altos Del Monte

Located off the mountains of Atenas, at only 20 minutes from the international airport of San Jose, The Retreat at Altos del Monte has entered the destination’s luxury offerings. 

The luxury 11-room boutique hotel, spa and yoga retreat is expected to position Costa Rica in a new segment and market on the globe. It is the newest health and wellness property owned by Diana Stobo, celebrity Superfood specialist and wellness coach.

The exclusive sanctuary can accommodate up to 26 guests in well-appointed rooms situated on a secluded eight-acre estate. The design of The Retreat reflects the natural elements of the lush, subtropical landscape with eco-friendly materials and nature throughout the property.  

“I have created ‘heaven on earth’ and I named it simply, The Retreat because we all have a different definition of ‘retreating’ and we get to create our own experience everywhere we go. My mission is to provide everything you may need and want for the perfect wellness vacation,” commented Stobo.

Guests are privy to three room-types spanning two buildings. All the rooms feature queen- or king-sized luxury pillow-top beds with mosquito-free mattresses and are dressed in eco-friendly Oekotech linens. All bath amenities and spa products are handcrafted by Raw Botanicals, a locally made organic and biodynamic skincare line. There are no phones or televisions in-room. Free wireless Internet access is available to all guests throughout the property at all times. 

The Cabinas are the largest of the accommodation options, featuring a private terrace perched on the edge of the property overlooking the dramatic mountainside. Each of the three cabinas can sleep up to five guests with two queen size beds and a daybed. 

The Yoga House Rooms are located above the Sanctuary Spa and are part of the tranquil Yoga House. These elegant rooms can each sleep two or more guests, offering either a queen and daybed or a king size bed. All rooms offer a patio with a view overlooking the beautiful hotel grounds and mountain landscape.

The Retreat at Altos del Monte features a large outdoor saline pool, complete with waterfall and centered by a fire-pit. Near the pool is a warming hot tub to enjoy after a day’s hike, a workout or in the evening under the stars. The pool area is equipped with plush sunbeds, umbrellas and complimentary towels.
