Host a Retreat in Paradise

Host a Retreat

When seeking to conduct a yoga retreat, meditation retreat, or similar meeting, retreat hosts look for locations that reflect positively upon them and offer an environment that meets their values. As someone interested in planning a retreat, there is little to no margin for error. Your guests have high expectations that must be met through a perfect combination of many elements.

Checking All The Boxes

Stunning Location

The venue should be inspiring and enhance the overall tone, mood, and spirit that the retreat leader wishes to create for their group.


Gourmet Food

As a retreat leader and attendee, you don’t want to worry if a place can handle your special dietary needs, be them vegetarian, vegan, etc., but rather you want everyone to rave about how great the food is and how the kitchen exceeded your needs and expectations.


Facilities and Logistics

Retreat leaders and group participants need to know that the equipment, facilities and staffing at the hotel will be taken care of so they can focus on their retreat, and forget about the day-to-day logistics that make the venue run smoothly. This allows hosts and participants to be inspired by the moment-by-moment aesthetics of being present.

Your Playa Viva Retreat

Playa Viva is a favorite choice of wellness and other retreat leaders who want to provide their guests with the perfect combination of beautiful surroundings and eco-luxury living without the expense of a 5-star resort. Located just 35 minutes south of the Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa International Airport (ZIH), Playa Viva is both easily accessible and a world away. Spread out over almost 200 acres, Playa Viva is the ideal place for your yoga, mindfulness, corporate or really any type of retreat. Playa Viva was constructed and is maintained as an eco-friendly facility. Our property blends in with the surrounding Sierra Madre Mountains, coastal mangroves and Pacific Ocean.

What our Retreat Leaders Say

Our Excellent Reviews

5 Stars | 210 Review

"Beyond the stunning beach front setting, exquisite natural architecture, and amazing healthy meals 3 times a day, what I loved was the quiet. No loud music, no kids screaming, NO ONE on the beach for miles. It feels like your own private paradise. The staff is incredible with professional yoga teachers and massage therapists at your beck and call. The chefs care about cooking exactly as you like it (there's only a few cottages) Even though the offer plenty of activities and excursions my friend and I never wanted to leave and do anything but relax. The most unique part is the resort is part of a turtle sanctuary and every morning they safely release hundreds of baby turtles into the sea. Such an amazing experience. Worth every cent! Enjoy!"

"This is the ultimate get away from it all vacation. But what is most appealing is the idealism and vision for using the resort to improve the local community. We all went away inspired, and feeling that that our pampering was being put toward a higher purpose. What Amanda is doing to rebuild the land and food forest and to teach first her farm staff and through them, the whole village, is truly remarkable. And returning to the pampering, Anjuli and Alok are the best of yoga teachers, and their Thai massage is out of this world. The friendliness and attentiveness of all the staff is unequalled in any resort property I've ever stayed in. The water temperature is magical, and having an unspoiled beach to yourself (except for the turtles) is a precious gift. Seeing whales and dolphins playing offshore reminds us what a magnificent world we live in. Oh, and you have the best dogs ever!"
