About This Center

THE RETREAT COSTA RICA is the brainchild of Celebrity Chef, two-time best-selling author and Health and Wellness Life-Coach, Diana Stobo. Diana’s goal was to create a transformational wellness center, literally “Heaven on Earth”, where every day people could come to escape the chaos and stresses of their lives and take an opportunity to reset their internal sense of balance in a nurturing and gentle environment.

The Retreat is one of the most special places I have ever visited. Rebecca S

Venue Highlights

Located less than 45 minutes from San Jose International Airport, THE RETREAT is nestled in the arms of a quartz mountain and overlooks a stunning balcony to the Pacific Ocean. THE RETREAT provides panoramic views extending over 60 miles across the world-renown beauty of Costa Rica. THE RETREAT is more than a luxury wellness destination; it truly is ‘Heaven on Earth’; a place where visitors can let go of the stresses of everyday life and learn how to create the inner feeling of balance within that you have always dreamed of having in your life.
