Welcome to The Retreat

Birthed in 2014, THE RETREAT is the brainchild of Celebrity Chef, two-time best-selling author and Health and Wellness Life-Coach, Diana Stobo. Diana’s goal was to create a transformational wellness center, literally “Heaven on Earth”, where every day people could come to escape the chaos & stresses of their lives and take an opportunity to reset their internal sense of balance in a nurturing and gentle environment.

Located less than 30 minutes from San Jose International Airport, THE RETREAT is nestled in the arms of a quartz mountain and overlooks a stunning balcony to the Pacific Ocean. THE RETREAT provides panoramic views extending over 60 miles across the world-renown beauty of Costa Rica. THE RETREAT is more than a luxury wellness destination; it truly is ‘Heaven on Earth’; a place where visitors can let go of the stresses of everyday life and learn how to create the inner feeling of balance within that you have always dreamed of having in your life.

Peace, harmony and tranquility are the keys THE RETREAT provides you with to a happy, healthy and youthful life. Visitors leave THE RETREAT with the necessary tools and information to continue to harness these keys in their everyday lives.

The moment you step foot on property, Pura Vida! Your life of wellness begins.
