For over a decade, we have performed as a successful, well-established retreat center with tourists and repeat guests who greatly appreciate the value of this nature space and the high-quality accommodations and features. It is a truly beautiful, magical property that is energetically integrated into the surrounding, pristine nature. It is now time to pass along this masterpiece to the next steward of this land. Asking Price $2,350,000, 42.5 Acres, Turn-key.
The Campus — Barefoot Luxury

Plunge into these revitalizing waters and let your body and spirit be cleansed.
Sustainable & Eco-Friendly
This property is aligned to be sustainable and independent, while not feeling like an off-grid establishment. For food, you have all of the fruit orchards, greenhouse and root vegetables gardens. We make our own soil through composting. We harness water from 2 natural springs. The solar installation is presently tied to the grid, but you can move it over to batteries. The mine provides us with the material we need to maintain our road. It is a remarkable way to live!
Move-In Ready Business Opportunity
The sale includes the fully established, turn-key, move-in ready, retreat center, hotel, lifestyle business. Whatever you want to make of it, you can start right away!
We spent the past 12 years using this space as a vegan, natural healing retreat center, called Farm of Life. We offer all-inclusive, formal retreats during dry season (January - April) and the remainder of the time we operate like a hotel where guests make reservations as they like, a-la-carte. You, of course, can create it however you'd like.
There are multiple business opportunities here. Aside from wellness, yoga and eco- tourism, you can continue to operate it as a retreat-resort-hotel, formal or informal. Live on-sight or manage it from abroad. Or, morph this property into an intentional community, as a spiritual- co-living ashram, agricultural business, educational facility, live-play-work online scenario or any other creative endeavor that you want to call forward.
There is plenty of available space for expansion too. You can build more homes, guest cabins, a maloca, game room, meeting room - whatever is the best fit for your business model.
Watch this for an example of using this property for hosting retreats, in this case a yoga retreat.
