Holding a retreat at Villas Espavel immerses you in our tranquil natural setting while the beautiful beach, restaurants and shops of Samara, Costa Rica are a quick 5-minute walk away. In the open second floor retreat space that we call The Bird's Nest, you can teach what you love while birds and butterflies flit by and howler monkeys scamper through the trees.
Sharing the glorious pool, outdoor dining room and the tree top classroom, our villas each have a kitchen, bathroom and patio. Together the six villas sleep between 12 – 24 people.
Villa Palma – Sleeps 1 - 2
Villa Selva – Sleeps 1 - 2
Villa Mar – Sleeps 2 – 3
Villa Jardin – Sleeps 2 - 4
Villa Rio – Sleeps 3 - 5
Casa Espavel – Sleeps 3 – 8
We have hosted student groups, and retreats focused on yoga, Pilates and family adventures. We are well equipped for photography, writing or other creative or business retreats. Villas Espavel has the fastest wifi in town, a projector, speakers, and two spaces for groups to gather.
We can help you arrange meal preparation as well as wonderful experiences for participants including massages, dolphin tours, snorkeling, stand up paddle boarding, ziplining, cooking classes or Latin dance classes. We look forward to talking with you about Villas Espavel and your retreat ideas.
