About.

We offer tailor-made experiences for individuals, groups and retreat leaders. Our packages include yoga, eco-spa therapies, and more.

Situated in one of the most biodiverse places on the planet Blue Osa Retreat & Spa Beach Resort is a tropical paradise to relax & renew.

From the moment you walk through our gates, you will feel different. We offer a complete experience: a world class yoga studio, beautiful and elegant eco-friendly accommodations, a chlorine-free pool, and meals harvested from our organic garden. AND we are only 50-meters from a beautiful remote jungle beach.

Our secluded beachfront property is located on Costa Rica’s biologically diverse Osa Peninsula. Here you will find coconut trees, colorful wildlife and crashing waves –– all guaranteed to provide a tranquil setting for letting go and living the pure life.

You want to get away –– we want to help.

Blue Osa Beach Resort & Spa is the perfect place to rejuvenate and retreat. From the friendly smiles of the staff who know your name, to the way the bread is baked from scratch daily, everything is done mindfully with love.

With 12 rooms and a capacity for 32 guests, this intimate beachfront eco-resort offers the ultimate sanctuary if you’re seeking solace from the hectic world. Nestled off-the-beaten-path in the virgin Costa Rican rainforest of the Southern Osa Peninsula, guests have an endless selection of quiet places to meditate and reflect.

Only 50 meters away from the waves, you can see the private beach while practicing yoga from our elegantly designed second floor Yoga Studio. Onsite, there is also a chemical-free lap pool for an afternoon swim.
