Eco practices

Protecting the beauty of our land is personal to us. We share with our guests the various uses of plants, herbs and fruit trees growing naturally here. We engage in rain water harvesting, maintain a salt water pool, and organic food forest. In building Valley of Dreams we used repurposed building materials, we engage in hügelkultur gardening, and serve as protected 12 acres for local wildlife.


Immerse yourself in this award-winning space in the beautiful hills of Costa Rica, just 20 minutes away from beautiful beaches.

Our custom open-air deck is great for yoga practice, wellness activity or learning. As a gathering space - with tables and hammocks - it is a great way to get the day started or wind down. The deck is adorned with a colourfully painted ‘flower of life’, reminiscent of an Indian mandala.

Our 400+ year old Ceiba tree is perfect for meditation, yoga, or healing ceremony. A short walk on groomed trails brings you to the base of this tree thought by many cultures to be the connection between our world and spiritual world.

Each cabin includes two private bedrooms. Each room has a full-sized (matrimonial) bed, desk and closet space. The cabin includes a living room, dining room table, kitchenette with microwave, coffee maker, sink, and refrigerator. Your cabin includes an updated bathroom with instant hot water, modern plumbing, high-end shower, and stone sink.

In addition to personal living spaces, you enjoy the main salon with couches, fully equipped kitchen, and dining area with 14-person live edge wood table created by local artisans.

You will love our salt-water pool, and comfortable covered fire-pit perfect for ceremony or roasting marshmallows.
