In November 2013 we led a group of 24 women on a yoga retreat for a full week at the amazingly beautiful Villa Sol y Luna. The Villa is a wonderful venue for holding a yoga retreat! We can't say enough about the setting, the villa, and most of all, the owners and staff. Rafael (owner) is responsive and accommodating.Ismael, Norma and Maria tended to all of our nutritional needs - no small feat given that many of our guests had food allergies and sensitivities. Loida and her staff tended to all of our household needs and helped us keep our rooms and space in order. Pedro (groundskeeper) and Norberto (property manager) attended to all of other needs. The beach is like no other we have retreated on - white, soft sand and although public - the villa is secluded and we saw few than a handful of other people over the week. The pool was a pleasant option, and laying about on lounge chairs at the beach or by the pool was definitely the main focus of each day outside of yoga and enjoying our meals on the beautiful veranda. The villa rooms are spacious, beautiful and comfortable, and having the more economical option of additional rooms in the guesthouse really worked for our group! As a group of women longing to recover from our busy lives and life challenges - we can't say enough about the healing properties of this setting - we loved it so much that we booked again for November and almost half of our guest re-booked to join us back on the beach. We can't wait to get back, and sense that our yoga retreats will be an annual event at this wonderful spot in the beautiful Riviera Maya.
