ABOUT ANAMAYA

The Main House

The main house is where our guests collect for meals, cooking classes, to snoop in our gift shop, or chat with a friend in our conversation pit. The upper yoga deck and the pool are located at the main house, and it’s the heart of Anamaya.

Food

Anamaya means health or to be free of disease in Sanskrit, and our brilliant chefs and cooking staff are dedicated to creating tasty and healthy meals. All our food is gluten free, and although we do serve fish and chicken – we also have vegetarian and vegan options.

Yoga Decks

Witness the epic views from Anamaya’s sky-high yoga decks. Our guests tell us that our yoga decks are the number one reason they came to Anamaya – to practice yoga overlooking our incredible views.

Salt Water Infinity Pool

Having a picture taken at our pool is so coveted by our guests, it’s become one of the most popular social media profile pictures. Our pool has also been featured in most of the press we’ve received over the years. It’s warm enough to swim in all year, and it sits on the corner of a bluff high above the ocean and jungle below.

Anamaya Spa

Our spa is one of the true gems of Anamaya. Our experienced therapists offer our guests the most luxurious treatments and premium health services including a variety of massages, facials, body scrubs, reiki and cranial sacral sessions, watsu, and more.

Anamaya Excursions

We have something for everyone in order to customize your stay at Anamaya. Surfing lessons, horseback riding, waterfall hiking, zip-lining, and more. Experience everything Anamaya and Costa Rica have to offer. There’s a reason it’s called the happiest place on earth!

Our Waterfall

The famous Montezuma Falls is only a 5-minute walk from Anamaya. There are three separate waterfalls in total, and our guests enjoy the swimming holes and rope swings. All rivers in Costa Rica are considered public land so you can hike up the falls and enjoy the natural beauty.

Beaches

We are blessed with some amazing beaches near Anamaya, located in Montezuma, Cabuya, Mal Pais and Santa Teresa. We also have a beach excursion that many of our guests say is one of the highlights of their stay with us.

Anamaya Farm

A 10-minute drive from Anamaya is our farm Rancho Delicioso where we grow a lot of the food that our restaurant uses to cook our delicious meals. We also have a permaculture program that we offer at the farm, and many people love to host their own retreats at our farm as well.

Wildlife & Animals

Costa Rica is an animal lovers dream! There are a variety of monkeys, exotic birds, whales, turtles, butterflies, sloths, frogs, iguanas and more. Costa Rica has such an impressive array of wildlife that we can guarantee you will have many opportunities to see the animals who share the jungle with us.

**Anamaya Resort has been featured in and recommended by: Forbes, Elle, Independent, Smarter Travel, Fashion, and more!

HANUMAN

Double Occupancy: $2945/PP
Triple Occupancy: $2595/PP

Hanuman is named after the monkeys we often see in the canopy surrounding Anamaya. This room (like all our rooms) has an epic view that you can also enjoy from the beautifully designed open air bathroom. 


This room sleeps 3 people and is one of our guests favs because of the uniquely designed queen sized bed built into its own special niche. It is very goddess like. 


Hanuman is ideal for 2 friends with who will have their own luxurious beds (the built in queen and a king sized bed)… or for three friends with two single beds instead of the king sized…or it’s also perfect for a family.


Like all of our rooms it has air conditioning and a ceiling fan, and a beautiful private deck to take in the view, enjoy the hammock or read one of your favorite books.

ANAHATA

Triple Occupancy: $2495/PP

This room accommodates 3 people with  3 adult sized single beds. This room used to be called the Master Suite because it used to be the master bedroom of the owners of the house, before the property became Anamaya Resort. 

This room is now called Anahata after the heart chakra partially because it’s in the heart of Anamaya on the second level of the main house.  It has a gorgeous private balcony overlooking our epic ocean view. The room also has vaulted ceilings, a ton of closet space and a large bathroom.

Like all of our rooms, there are ceilings fans and air conditioning, but the room is very well insulated so our guests find they don’t need to use the AC very much.

JUNGLE

Double Occupancy: $2695/PP
**RESERVED FOR MEN ONLY

The Jungle room is a huge favorite at Anamaya because it is unlike any other room. What is unique about this room is that it is built into the jungle canopy. This is the only room that doesn’t have an ocean view, but the view from this room is epic!


The design and lighting in this room is stunning, with your very own open air shower and balcony. This room has two twin beds, surrounded by 3 walls of glass making you feel completely connected to nature. The windows and sliding doors can be opened for a natural refreshing breeze, but like all our rooms there is air conditioning and a ceiling fan.


There is also a beautiful outdoor shower, making it even more fun! Our guests have seen monkeys, anteaters, toucans, and may other tropical animals in the canopy… that’s why we call it the Jungle room.

THE CASITA

Quintuple Occupancy: $2345/PP
**2 SPOTS LEFT

Casita used to be a small house on the property before Anamaya was built. It is now a large and lovely home for solo travelers, 5 friends, or anyone traveling on a budget. We have something for everyone in terms of affordability.

There is a large deck with hammocks and a seating area overlooking the ocean and the jungle, and it is well designed with high ceilings with a lot of natural light and airflow.

We call the Casita a dorm style room because it is a shared space, but this is unlike any dorm you’ve seen. It is surrounded by organic herb and vegetable gardens, and has two bathrooms – including a very large garden bathroom and shower that our guests rave about and will often use it to take showers in the rain!

The Casita is the first structure that was built on this property so it is set apart from our other cabinas, offering a lot of space and privacy.

GARUDA'S NEST

Double Occupancy: $2695/PP

We like to call this room the Sky Cabin, but some of our guests call it the Tree House. Whatever you would prefer to call it, Garuda’s Nest is one of our more popular rooms.


This tower has the best views on the property! Because it’s so high it does sway slightly in the wind, so if you are afraid of heights this might not be the cabin for you. This room is for our more adventurous guests. 


This room is perfect for 2 – 3 people. On the lower level you have the option of 2 single beds or one King sized bed, and in the upper loft is one Queen sized bed. 

Below the main cabin, halfway up the tower is your very own private deck and lookout for you to practice yoga, read a book or take an afternoon nap in one of the hammocks. This room is truly epic!

BALI CABINA

Double Occupancy: $2795/PP
**SOLD OUT

The Bali Cabina is probably one of the most popular rooms at Anamaya. It was designed in Bali, then disassembled, shipped to Costa Rica, and re-assembled here. This room has a spectacular garden bathroom and deck overlooking the ocean.

This room is perfect for couples, solo travelers, or two good friends. There can be two single beds or one King sized bed in this room.

The Bali house is a very exotic room and has three walls of glass with large curtains for privacy.

From this room you can see the mainland of Costa Rica, all the way down to Jaco and Quepos. On a lucky day you may see dolphins or whales playing in the water, and most of the time you can hear the Montezuma Falls off in the distance. 

The outdoor tropical bathrooms are a big hit here at Anamaya, and the Bali Cabina is one of the largest garden bathrooms. It is one of only two rooms that has a bathtub, and from the tub or shower you are treated to a breathtaking view through a unique round window.

GAIA HOUSE

Quintuple Occupancy: $2395/PP
**SOLD OUT
women only

The Gaia house is perfect for our solo travelers or 5 friends! Or maybe 2 friends who want to connect with other travelers from around the world (true retreat style!). 


There are 3 single beds on the lower level, and 2 loft areas with a single bed in each loft. There are 2 bathrooms each with a toilet and a sink, and 2 open air showers with curtains for added privacy. Many of our guests have told us they LOVE the open air showers so they can look out over the jungle and the ocean… something they definitely can’t experience from home.


The view from Gaia is breathtaking and there is a lot of light that floods the space. It is a modern but rustic space, and a favorite amongst our Yoga Teacher Training students.

ANANDA

Double Occupancy: $2695/PP

**SOLD OUT

Ananda is a favorite amongst couples.

The views from all our rooms are spectacular, but from Ananda they are even more breathtaking. This bright and spacious cabina has many windows to let in maximum light and airflow. All our rooms have air conditioning, but it’s really not needed in Ananda because of the excellent eco-friendly design. 

One of the key features of this room is the open air bathroom with a sculpted circular tub looking over our epic ocean view. There’s also a desk, private deck and hammock.

This room has a single bed in the loft area, and either two singles on the main level or a King sized bed for couples. 

Ananda also has a hidden zen garden that helps to add even more beauty and create a very peaceful space.

Originally this room was built for the owners to use when they stayed at Anamaya but we’ve now opened it up for our guests to use. This room is perfect for a couple, or two friends. You can choose either a king sized bed or 2 adult sized single beds.

This is a very private room overlooking the ocean with a great view of a large tree that the monkeys love to hang out in. There is a private outside deck with seating, and inside you have air conditioning and a ceiling fan so your stay is as comfortable as possible.

LOTUS

Single Occupancy: $3495 | Double Occupancy: $2695
**SOLD OUT

The Lotus Room is one of the most popular because of the views to the East and the South. It is perfect for a couple (with a king sized bed), or two friends traveling together (with two adult sized single beds). 


The ‘split king’ Morrocan-inpired beds are our own unique design, made in Costa Rica from cenizaro wood. We have a variety of high quality bedding and our linens are organic.


There is an open air closet, which is the best way to store clothing in the tropics, a desk for your laptop, and an outdoor deck with hammocks. 

The panoramic ocean and jungle views from this cabina make it one of the favorites here at Anamaya.

GANESH

Single Occupancy: $3495 | Double Occupancy: $2695
**SOLD OUT

This room is a favorite with visiting couples and solo travelers. It’s cozy and private, with incredible south-facing views of the ocean and southern Nicoya peninsula.


Ganesh has a queen sized bed, and is unique because it has a view of both the sunrise and the sunset… as well as a distant visa of Cabo Blanco national park, located at the southernmost tip of the Nicoya Peninsula. On a rare day, you might be able to see a rainbow down inside the valley, coming from a waterfall that’s hidden in there.


The room has air conditioning, a ceiling fan, and a small desk with a gorgeous ocean view. There is also a deck above with a hammock offering a gorgeous view of the peninsula. Some of our guests have seen whales or dolphins in the ocean below in front of the Rio Montezuma river mouth.
