    I have been to this wonder haven 3 years in a row. Every year has continued to exceed my expectations -- from the lovely meals to the retreat space itself, every detail has been thoughtfully and carefully crafted. The owner and her staff are ever so friendly doing anything to contribute to the healing quality of the experience. Although excursions are offered, there is no need to ever leave. Everything you could want or need is here. -- Deepest Thanks to Karen and her team for creating this retreat experience!

    I was here for a yoga retreat. What an amazing place - the food, the arrangements, the location are truly magical. The only thing I would warn on is that if you get car sick, take a Dramamine before the drive, it is unpaved.

    Ahki is not your run of the mill B&B, but a beautiful architecturally designed and landscaped property up in the hills behind Garza Beach, an easy 15 minute drive to Guiones Beach. All buildings on the property showcase a sophisticated CR and Asian flair and the rooms are stylish, spacious, and comfortable. Fantastic breakfasts and dinners available as an extra (if you do not fancy the drive into town). It would be very easy to not leave the property and give into rest and relaxation - that said, there are many beautiful attractions near at hand. The pool area is spectacular and there is a beautiful yoga space. No Wi-Fi in the rooms, but available poolside. Wonderful tree specimens and landscaping abound, and yes, nature as well - that means the sound and occasionally sight of monkeys, hummingbirds, frogs, and various critters, who we share this space (the jungle) with. I appreciate the ethics of Ahki in not laying poisons out to eradicate these harmless indigenous locals, and accordingly, it's possible you may see a few critters around the property - but nothing of concern. The only caution is for those with mobility issues. The rooms are a few minutes walk down stairs and terraces from the main house and this may not suit elderly or mobility impaired persons. You should also be prepared for a steep gravel driveway (but this is not uncommon in Costa Rica) - I would strongly recommend a car for independence - but it's not absolutely necessary. There were during my stay a range of couples coming through the property and a few single people as well. Everyone had space for privacy and the shared breakfast spaces etc allowed for gentle interactions. Finally, no review of Ahki could be complete without recognizing the great efforts and energy of the owner, Karen, who is a wonderful person and personality, ever present, always interested in the well being and enjoyment of guests. This is very much Karen's home and a testament to her taste and interest in the environment and sustainability.

    What an exquisite spot!!! The ambiance was soothing and very zen. The food, views, monkeys, and people left nothing to be desired. I would return in a heartbeat.

    Just returned from an amazing week at AHKI. What a beautiful place. The attention to detail and the convergence with nature are inspired. I was there for a week long retreat and its an incredible place for such an experience.
