About Cole Cruz

UPCOMING DEPARTURES

Samasati Retreat & Rainforest Sanctuary

The architecture of Samasati’s Caribbean casitas were designed to silently sit within the terrain, climate and natural offerings of this land. We deliver comfort within an earthy simplicity. We have ten Caribbean style casitas built with precious native woods that are nestled within lovely tropical gardens and the lush forest. All casitas have private bathrooms and a spacious veranda overlooking the rainforest and South Caribbean Sea. Some casitas have lofts that accommodate up to three people. All of our casitas have comfortable new mattresses, which are king, queen, full or two singles. Our guest House bungalows are smaller private rooms with a choice of a full or two single beds. The bungalows are semi-private with each sharing a bathroom with one other room. Outside, there are large verandas with hammocks overlooking the rainforest.

Our spa house consists of two cozy rooms sitting high up on a hill. A cool breeze gently brings in just the right amount of fresh air during your treatment. This is a sweet space where our guests feel comfortable and nurtured.

Samasati was amazing! It's perfect for nature lovers, tucked away in Costa Rica's rainforest with a quick 10 minute ride to the beach. The drive from the airport is long ( 4 1/2 hours approx.) but the views are worth it. The staff at Samasati are so wonderful!

This trip was jam-packed full of activities offsite along with twice daily yoga in a great natural rainforest location. I found this trip physically challenging meaningful and rewarding. Wildlife was plentiful.

This was an adventure outside of my comfort zone, but it was the most amazing experience. The bus ride in was 5 hours and we were made aware of this, however, being prepared and actually doing it is another thing. I would recommend taking the plane if you can make it work. But that should not overshadow the breathtaking views, the quaint casitas, and of course the amazing hospitality of Stephanie and Scott and their incredible staff. Stephanie organized all our excursions for us and we were a group of 21! That was no small feat. She listens to what you want and advises based on what you want. I have no regrets booking this trip and can safely say if you want the real rainforest experience this is the place to book! Howler monkeys and all!! Thanks
