Wellness Center Overview
In the country that does not believe in armies, that loves and respects nature and is internationally recognized for protecting its flora, fauna and clean air, we have created a Wellness Center in harmony with the laws of life. Located in El Cacao de Alajuela, skirting the Poás Volcano, Asclepios Wellness & Healing Retreat, (honoring the Greek God of Health) offers its guests 12 rooms which evoke the most important medical traditions of the world, together with a regulated ionized swimming pool, amphitheatre, fitness center, yoga and meditation pavilion, floatation camera, sauna, Hammam, Vichy and Scottish showers, 4 treatment lodges, a relaxation room and an organic Restaurant. We work with a team of highly skilled spa therapists and another team of selected holistic practitioners from all over the world. We have put together a great understanding and passion for physical, emotional and spiritual health resulting in great wellbeing. We care not only about ourselves, but also about our community and our environment. Asclepios Wellness & Healing Retreat seeks to educate in environmental appreciation and conservation. Our Center will not compromise our natural habitat: it only occupies 20000 square feet in an area comprising 12,500 acres. It is built in siding and brick, two sustainable materials. We use thermal solar collectors and take advantage of natural ventilation and natural lighting. Wild life has been preserved and our primary and secondary forests will be untouched.
We are cultivating a wonderful organic farm and are working together with experts to reintroduce native plants and animals that have been driven out by alien species.
