Origins Lodge Introduces Customizable, Private Retreats

The new Origins Lodge retreats feature rejuvenating spa treatments, healing therapies, and exclusive experiences.


Origins Lodge has debuted private retreats for guests looking for a transformative escape while recharging in nature. With accommodations for four nights and five days in a Luxury Lodge, guests will embark on a personalized retreat filled with luxurious spa treatments, healing therapies, and exclusive experiences both on and off-site.

Daily yoga and meditation practices are included with all private retreats, as well as three gourmet meals a day, customized towards dietary preferences. Large selections of on-site experiences are also included to create a customized retreat for each guest. These activities include hiking to Oro Waterfall, horseback riding, cooking classes, sustainability and farm tours, lagoon fishing, nocturnal tours, and birdwatching. 

Private retreats can be further personalized with specialty treatments and experiences arranged for an additional fee. Available transformative healing therapies include sound healing, Reiki, chanting mantras, and breathwork sessions over the course of three series. Spa treatments can also be added to aid in relaxation with an available menu of facials, massages, body treatments, reflexology, and other signature treatments. Premium off-site experiences can also be selected to further enhance retreat itineraries with chocolate tours, tubing, hiking to Celeste Waterfall, and visiting the butterfly center or Caño Negro Wetlands.

“We are excited to continue the expansion of the wellness programming at ORIGINS Lodge by introducing restorative private retreats,” says general manager Claudia Silva. “With a myriad of treatments, therapies, and activities to choose from, we are confident that every guest will be able to customize a transformative experience perfectly tailored to his or her individual needs.”

Pricing for the four-night personally tailored retreats begins at $4,500 for double occupancy, and $3,900 for solo travelers.
