Situated next to The Retreat Costa Rica, Vida Mia Ayurvedic Healing Center and Spa recently made its grand debut. Featuring a healer from Kerala, India, it is the first Ayurvedic healing center in Costa Rica.

Created and inspired by owner Diana Stobo, the center has seven treatment rooms. Designed by Costa Rican architect Luis Edwardo Ortiz with French interior designer Veronique De La Cruz and Costa Rican designer Andrea Artinano, the 7,000-square-foot center features breathtaking sea and mountain views and designated areas for special events. Each guest will receive a personalized assessment when booking an Ayurvedic treatment with an in-house healer. There is also a medical practitioner on staff as well as functional nutritionists and personal trainers to provide a well-rounded experience. The programming has been designed to deliver internal healing based on Ayurvedic philosophy.

The menu features all traditional Ayurvedic philosophies, such as panchakarma, shirodhara, and more. The new center also offers guests and organic and biodynamic wine cave with a tasting room, an exotic tea lounge, a vegetarian café, a warm lap pool, an ice-cold waterfall, a crystal-infused intention pond, and water swings. “After traveling the world as a healing and spa junkie," says Stobo, "I have discovered the most effective and exciting tools to create the perfect healing experience."
