Awaken the 5 Senses

A tropical co-ed wellness retreat to explore the 5 Senses 

Thursday May 10th - Sunday May 13th 2018

Villa Mandarinas, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Experience a new side of Puerto Vallarta and discover yourself along the journey.  Travel with us down the coast to Villa Mandarinas. This 20,000 sqft villa cascades down the  mountain connecting the lush jungle to the warm Pacific Ocean.  Awaken the 5 Senses Retreat is a collaborative effort between Zen Casa and yogi/personal trainer Jake Ferree.  This co-ed retreat will bring together students from both communities to share this unique experience.   Awaken the 5 Senses is an opportunity to be present as you absorb and engage the surrounding environment.  Each activity is selected to thrill, tickle, and ignite the senses of touch, taste, hearing, sight and smell.  In addition to the access of daily yoga, participants will have opportunities to  sail on the ocean, snorkel at Los Arcos, enjoy afternoon massages,  and taste hydrating fresh juices, along with so much more.  Find yourself with us along the edge of the ocean.  

This 4 day / 3 night all - inclusive wellness retreat is held at Villa Mandarinas.  Once featured in architectural digest, the villa has 10 unique oversized suites, each with a private bathroom, and all with stunning views of the ocean and Los Arcos.  With access to the entire property,  guests will have plenty of time to leisure by the multiple pools, lagoons, hammocks, and sun decks.  The villa's full staff will help to ensure you can rest with ease.  As a co-ed retreat, we look forward to the diversity of those who attend.  Whether a couple, two friends, a single traveler, or treating mom for mother's day, all are welcomed.  Open heart, open community.
