An Inside Look at Cala Luna Boutique Hotel’s Wellness Program

October 24, 2018 Health and Wellness No Comments Email Email

Cala Luna Boutique Hotel & Villas is a sustainability and wellness hub tucked within Costa Rica’s Playa Langosta and the Baulas National Park. The ethos behind Cala Luna is that it is ‘more than a hotel’ but rather a way to a simpler, more fulfilling life. Cala Luna’s offerings are deeply rooted in the pursuit of its guests well being. At the hotel, visitors will find balance, whether on the surfboard or guided meditation, color, in seasonally changing meals and the nature that surrounds them and an authentic sense of place.

In addition to a comprehensive wellness program, Cala Luna has launched a series of luxury wellness retreats. Its first one began October 17 and will run through October 24 featuring modern yoga master Arkady Shirin. The Yoga and Martial Arts retreat will encourage participants to practice asanas and ancient vinyasas combined with Martial Arts, bodywork tips, and much more. Other activities to promote an active lifestyle include surfing lessons, snorkeling, zip lining, kayaking, horseback riding, stand-up paddle and much more.

“We define wellness as the search for a balanced living and strive to implement practices that will inspire our guests while on vacation and also beyond it. While we offer options of healthy eating and physical exercise, our comprehensive wellness program also incorporates yoga, meditation and a space that is conducive to relaxation,” said Federico Pilurzu, Cala Luna’s general manager, and former pro surfer. 

A typical morning at Cala Luna begins with outdoor yoga classes surrounded by jungle and the sounds of native birds and monkeys. Guests are then welcome to experience the hotel’s indoor/outdoor spa which offers healing practices, volcanic rock and mud treatments and holistic massages. Those who want to connect deeper with meditation are welcome to visit the nearby La Senda, an organic farm that houses the world’s largest meditative cacti labyrinths.

Organic, sustainable and seasonal eating is not an afterthought at the hotel. La Senda produces all vegetables used at the hotel; local fishermen provide the hotel with freshly caught seafood, and meats are also responsibly sourced.

Wellness and sustainability go hand in hand, and Cala Luna is well immersed in all things green. Some sustainable practices include using solar energy, providing sustainability workshops to hotel staff, recycling, biodegradable toiletries, glass-bottled water, bamboo straws, environmentally safe cleaning products, complimentary bikes for guests to explore around Tamarindo and much more.
