Caveat Emptor

This is a lovely place. It is NOT a resort. Note, is disguised by really great marketing is that you will be sleeping in a hut in the middle of the jungle, in a bed that needs to be draped in mosquito netting for a reason. And even though the food is very good...out of season, the accommodations made me really appreciate the Nelson Mandela quote posted 7/18/14 on Xinalani's FB page: "I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.


The brave man is he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear."

I was very happy to end my stay early and come home to a dog on her deathbed, despite the fact that two weeks later, my luggage is still outside for fear of insect infestation which some of my fellow guests experienced. I made it longer than I had anticipated and am really pleased at my mindfulness acquired through conquering Xinalani, which I now comically reference as my "Survivor Yoga Vacation"

A pleasure to work with

the team at Xinalani is a pleasure to work with. They really do facilitate everything from helping you to promote and implement your program. Given the amenities, the pricing is just right. If you're planning a retreat, give them a shout. They will be happy to help you make it happen.

Happy Yogi

I've lead two retreats at Xinalani and I am happy to report this place is incredible! I go during the winter season to escape the brutal cold and I am always welcomed by the friendly staff, crystal blue water, and beauty of Xinalani. The yoga facilities are versatile and always supplied with yoga props. The music system and cleanliness of the studios are appreciated. The chef and his staff are very accommodating and the food is 5-star quality. During the day- lounging my water is always accompanied by friendly service if you need beverages. I highly recommend Xinalani

I love this place

Xinalani is magnificent - the setting, the service, the staff, the bungalows, the yoga, the food. This place gave me exactly what I needed - a complete escape so that I could truly relax and do the restorative work I needed to do. If you are looking for action, this isn't the place. If you want quiet, privacy, kind people and attentive service so you needn't have a care in the world, this is the right place. I loved my stay here.
