The first thing people say upon seeing the well manicured grounds and exotic foliage is “how did you find this place?” Also, many people remark just how delicious the food is given that everything is all included. Featuring breakfast, lunch and dinner served daily from the on-site Buena Vista restaurant as well as four other dining options. A new and truly beautiful restaurant called Arecife just opened to great reviews. We now can offer vegan and vegetarian options for all three meals.

A YOGA RETREAT WITH EXPERT HOSPITALITY
Since our launch in 2011 we have welcomed guests from all over the world – with many of them arriving as strangers and leaving as friends. After running over twenty retreats we have learned to offer guests the flexibility to do as much or as little as they like. The most important thing to remember is you are on a vacation! From the airport transfers to making sure you bring everything you need (passport as well) you will the most professional care and service from the Punta Serena staff. Especially the massage therapists Rodrigo and Miriam.
A TRUE HOT YOGA ROOM.. AUTHENTIC
We have the most authentic hot yoga room you can possibly imagine. In January 2016 we completely rebuilt the yoga room to perfectly represent what is a true hot yoga class. Calibrated temperatures are never more than 105 degrees and 40 – 50% humidity. Hot Pilates classes and most morning classes will max out at 95 – 100 degrees. Most important will be the beautiful ocean breezes during Savasana
THE TEMAZCAL EXPERIENCE
Temazcal is a traditional ceremony that is a staple at Punta Serena Resort & Spa. We take part (it is optional) and begin after morning class with sun salutations and a journey to the beach to begin a process of exfoliation which leads to purification. Special mud is applied and then the fun begins. Many guests have written in their reviews about Temazcal, claiming a transformative experience It is something that truly cannot be explained! You will find that after doing two classes daily and practicing Temazcal you will start to achieve a state of absolute yoga bliss!
