Commune with nature in our peaceful open air, wooden pavilion, a hidden sanctuary in our secluded jungle paradise. The floor is teak, designed especially for yoga and movement with high wooden ceilings. It can comfortably accommodate 20 for yoga, and more for other activities. Looking out, you are surrounded by lush green flora, flowers and abundant nature. The ocean roar becomes more audible during high tide, a beautiful addition to the practice of meditation. Bird songs, butterflies, and an occasional hummingbird contribute to the inspirational atmosphere. It’s an ideal location for workshops, educational courses, events and celebrations. Use this space to practice yoga, dance, meditation, or whatever calls to your heart. Props include yoga mats, blocks, cushions and blankets.
We appreciate the need to stay connected to the outside world. We offer free wireless internet in all rooms and common areas.
