El-Sabanero is the perfect playground for different groups, retreats, and special events. Common areas are peaceful, surrounded with nature, overlooking beautiful view of the Cañafistula valley, and providing the perfect atmosphere for holistic inspired retreats. In addition, our friendly staff, gourmet cuisine, and relaxing environment complete your perfect tropical getaway.

We work together with yoga studios, and other holistic practitioners to help facilitate retreats and special events, as well as host our own yoga retreats and workshops. We offer affordable yoga retreats, yoga teacher training and other transformational programs cater to all tastes and budgets.

In addition, our ‘hustle free’ approach helps teachers and facilitators focus on what matters most to them. We take care of all your needs. From rides to and from Liberia or San Jose airports, to accommodations, meals, and excursions, we make sure it is all set up for you and your group.

We always love to hear new ideas for retreats or events and looking to grow our community of facilitators with people from all walks of life. Feel free to get in touch and we will be happy to arrange a group package for you.

  • Quasi Yogi PARADISE
    Staying at El Sabanero Eco Lodge was an amazing experience. The grounds are beautiful and the atmosphere is very relaxed and peaceful. Although, I am not really into yoga, I never felt uncomfortable and I really enjoyed myself. The owners, Amit and Tasha, have such an incredible energy and I am truly thankful for the time I was able to spend with them and their children. It was easy feeling at home there. The food was DELICIOUS, fresh, and varying each day. I would highly recommend El Sabanero Eco Lodge to anyone. I feel blessed to have had this experience and can’t wait for my next visit!
  • Like saying Good Bye to an Old Friend!
    El Sabanero. Not just an ole Eco Lodge. Now re-shaping itself as a major Yoga training and certification destination just outside of Tamarindo and Playa Allvenas. It's my 4th year coming here....and for good reason. It now feels like home....but with a much better view and climate. The owner Kurt Reichenbacher has cultivated an easy going, relaxed, yet effieciently run mini paradise. Comfortable, cozy cabinas, a wonderful infinity pool with a stunning valley view, outstanding food. With the addition of Amit and Tasha as the head Yoga facilitators, El Sabanero is expanding and very quickly becoming a must be at destination when visiting the area. I look forward to coming back....perhaps sooner, rather than later, hanging out with Kurt, expanding my personal Yoga experiences, and thoroughly enjoying the massive mental, spiritual and emotional de-compression this place has to offer.
  • Fabulous Place To Stay
    I love this place, very peaceful/tranquil great place to stay if your visiting Costa Rica. The owners and staff ( Kurt, Harold, Ameet, Donald, Tosha, and more..) are very gracious and welcoming. The lodge has a beautiful pool, hammocks, yoga studios, hiking grounds, lots to do. You can also venture out, which the owners will help coordinate and arrange a driver (Fernando), zip lining, horseback riding, Tamirando, Beaches and more. Also, the lodge prepares delicious healthy meals thru out the day (breakfast, lunch and dinner). Ameet leads dail yoga classes in the evening, the experience is very relaxing ans serene.I highly recommend staying at the El Sabenero if you want to feel relaxed and experience the TLC feeling while in Costa Rica.
  • Tranquil week spent with Amit, Tasha, Kurt and Donald at El Sabanero
    A week in paradise. Truly the most tranquil, welcoming and rejuvenating environments I've ever experienced. The owners, Amit, Tasha and Kurt, couldn't be more gracious and are always available and eager to help accommodate any needs you have. The lodge itself is absolutely breathtaking, with a beautiful view of the Guanacaste mountains from the pool and deck, and two yoga studios, both semi-outdoors to remind you that you're not just practicing in a studio, you're practicing in Costa Rica. There are myriad opportunities to venture out of the lodge, which the staff will help your coordinate. Our group spent time in Tamarindo as well as zip lining and horseback riding through Guanacaste. And to save the best for last, the cuisine at El Sabanero is the most mouth-wateringly delicious food I've ever had. Each meal was better than the last, from butternut squash and ginger soup to fish and yucca fajitas, every bite was absolute perfection. if you're looking for a peaceful, charming retreat center with delectable dishes, look no further than the El Sabanero lodge.
