This has been one of the best experiences I've had traveling to an unknown place. I took a yoga retreat group here and everyone was beyond delighted. Everything was perfect, thank you Sansara for an unforgettable experience. - Nazli, Retreat Leader I would truly recommend this amazing paradise to anyone who wants to get away for reality. Every part of my experience was 100% satisfied. I truly loved the entire experience! The staff! Chef, front desk..... the welcome committee..... OMG!!! Everything! Thank you all for incredible service! - Barb, Retreat Guest Simply amazing. The staff are the perfect balance of professional and extremely friendly. They epitomize “barefoot luxury.” The property is gorgeous. The location is perfect for a getaway and all the experiences (yoga, surf, massage, waterfall) are wonderfully curated. The surf instructors are the best in the business and truly teach you to safely and properly surf on your own (without the usual “push”). The cherry on top is the exceptional food - consistently delicious and every dinner featured cuisine from a different culture. Thank you Sansara!! xo - Retreat Guest

Venue Highlights

Sansara is located oceanfront on the Pacific Coast of Panama. Situated within a small, rustic surf & fishing village in the province of Los Santos; we are approximately a 5 hour scenic drive from Panama City, the country’s capital. Remoteness is our most prized commodity. Nature, tranquility and serenity fosters growth like nothing else. The authenticity of the town of Cambutal changes people; it allows you to stop, it allows you to breathe, it allows you to truly let go.

We provide luxury transportation to and from Panama City for our Retreat Groups - to allow each guest to sit back, relax and enjoy the journey throughout the country of Panama.


Sansara has 11 uniquely built, and custom cabanas - with options for private, double, triple and quad occupancy spaces. Each cabana is fully equipped with their own private bathroom, hot water, a/c, lush linens and cottons (beach & shower towels provided), mini-fridges, organic spa products, and private patios to enjoy the fresh & salty ocean air.

Dinners are a mix between three course- chef's menus and family style - encompassing flavours from across to globe to give your taste buds the experience of a lifetime!


We utilize a luxury transportation company to bring our retreat groups to Sansara on the morning of the retreat start date. Recognizing that we are 5.5 hours from Panama City, it is important each guest feels safe and supported along the journey. Should you wish to join outside of the included transport- have no fears! The roads are fully paved and well-marked all the way to our doors at Sansara. We are located on Google Maps, as well as through WAZE.
