About Our Retreat Spaces At Vajra Jahra

A retreat back to nature is an incredible way for you to rejuvenate your body, intentionally withdraw from the commotion of everyday life, and recommit to your inward journey. Retreats allow participants to refresh their minds by removing distractions, disconnecting from their daily schedules, and step away from screens – all while creating a serene space for them to connect to their mind, body, and spirit. 

You will enjoy hosting the ultimate retreat at Vajra Jahra Villas & Retreat Center located in the beautiful Diamante Valley, Costa Rica.

Accommodate Your Group in Paradise, Surrounded by Mountains And Serenity

By hosting your retreat with Vajra Jahra, you will be given the option to reserve the entire property so that you and your group have complete privacy. Alternatively, you can reserve just a few villas while you immerse yourself in all VJ has to offer – including exceptional natural beauty surrounded by lush rainforest.

Each day, we will nourish your participants with healthy and delicious meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Your group will enjoy cuisines that include locally-sourced ingredients and seasonal produce to create Costa Rican-inspired dishes that are bursting with flavor. We are more than happy to accommodate dietary restrictions and food allergies with advanced notice.

Imagine hosting the ultimate retreat experience for you and your guests, while being surrounded by endless, breathtaking views of the world in its purest form. Wake up surrounded by the morning sun shining through lush rainforests and mountains, and the sounds of exotic birds chirping and water flowing in jungle streams.

Imagine connecting to nature through the stunning sights and calming sounds of the Diamante Waterfall, and tropical rainforest. Encircle yourself with the positive energy that flows over and throughout the entire landscape as you enjoy the natural rhythms of Costa Rica. 

We are located just 30 minutes from the picturesque beaches of Dominical and Uvita, and an hour from the Manuel Antonio National Park where you can enjoy the iconic wildlife of Costa Rica including toucans, monkeys, sloths, turtles, macaws, iguanas, and more. 

While visiting, your group can enjoy adventure tours like zip lining through spectacular views while capturing priceless photos against the perfect backdrop. Get adventurous and try white water rafting, surfing, or go snorkeling in the most gorgeous, clear waters of the Pacific. Take a trip to the hot springs or experience a unique cooking class.  You can reach deeper levels of your meditation by participating in a cacao ceremony.
