KINKÁRA, Costa Rica’s New Eco-Luxury Retreat Destination, Opens Doors (and Glamping Tents) for Wellness-minded Travelers
Natural Sanctuary and Regenerative Property Centers Around Alignment of the Mind, Body and Spirit; Offers Ideal Setting for Yoga and Mindfulness Retreats, Family Gatherings and Corporate Team Events
, a regenerative, eco-luxe retreat destination, located in the foothills of Mount Chirripo—Costa Rica’s highest mountain—has officially opened, bringing a new kind of wellness experience for Costa Rica. Nearly two years in the making, the 880-acre natural sanctuary centers around the alignment of the mind, body and spirit and is designed for yoga and mindfulness retreats, family gatherings, corporate team events and more. Travelers are now able to book accommodations and curated experiences through the site, with nightly rates starting at $295 per person for double occupancy.
Perched 3,000 feet above sea level and surrounded by mountains, rivers and waterfalls, Kinkára is rooted in wellness, gastronomy, education, regeneration, creation, and leadership. Designed with each traveler in mind, Kinkára provides guests with customized, all-inclusive stays. Farm-to-table cuisine, daily guided meditation and yoga in open-air spaces, regenerative healing services, sound-baths, indigenous cacao ceremonies, hiking, and waterfall swims are just some of the unique experiences guests can expect at Kinkára.
Accommodations include 35 fully-furnished individual and group eco-luxury Lotus Belle canvas tents, giving guests the most comfortable and reparative night of sleep and deep connection with nature they’ll ever have. Each tent features locally made craftsman furniture, organic 500-thread cotton linens, plush robes, warm blankets, USB charging pods and WiFi. Guests fall asleep under a canopy of stars and wake up feeling refreshed as the sun rises over the vast property. Guests also have access to luxury bathhouses, steps away from the tents, which feature rainfall showerheads and various organic amenities made specifically for the property.
“Kinkára energizes the spirit. It connects guests to nature, to each other and to themselves. Each element of the guest journey is aligned to offer an immersive experience that is simultaneously fun, adventurous, communal, and rejuvenating. It is an antidote to a world that is often out of step – and out of tune,” said David Comfort, Kinkára co-founder.
The property offers several serene and engaging open-air spaces, such as Casa Bulu and El Morén, which are designed to foster dynamic conversations and robust collaboration. Each can accommodate a wide variety of programming, from mindful movement to lectures and small break-out sessions. In addition, the vast property allows for more active engagement activities such as team building, ultimate frisbee, kite flying, and more.
Regeneration is at the core of Kinkára philosophy, enhancing the guest’s experience by nourishing their body and mind while on property. Kinkára’s goal aims to integrate the Kinkára farm, food forest, and cuisine with well-being of the body, mind and spirit so that guests may return to their everyday life feeling deeply refreshed and re-inspired. The culinary team is dedicated to consciously sourcing ingredients grown on its land, from local farms, artisans and local producers.
Kinkára’s edible Mandala Garden provides guests with organic, farm-to-table culinary delights unlike any other. Within each plate, award-winning chef Kuntal Kumar strives to create dishes that celebrate the sustainability of the land through an artistry and diversity that is present within each bite. In addition to house-made kombucha, hand-picked herbal teas, elixirs and fresh-pressed juices, sample menu items include oven-roasted free-range chicken, flavored with rosemary alium and sweet potato served with amaranth, chayote and squash pilaf with cilantro and ginger and sautéed pak choy with ginger and sesame oil. The dynamic dining experience on property revolves around the natural rhythms of the farm and the guests’ preferences and dietary needs.
Kinkára is located about 100 miles away from San José International Airport and based in the heart of Costa Rica’s biodiverse Southern Zone. Typically included with the stay guests arrive at the property by a 20-minute private charter flight.
