Sansara Surf & Yoga Resort is the dream
space to host your next retreat.
We specialize in yoga retreats, yoga teacher trainings, surf experiences, meditation intensives, women empowerment programs, fitness and wellness escapes, corporate and team building getaways, detox retreats, foodie vacations and so much more.
Sansara is here to help you turn your dream retreat into tropical reality.
We know how to bring any idea, any vision and any concept to life. We know the importance of creating a sacred space where growth, connection and inspiration can flourish beyond measure. We know how to support you as a leader, innovator and educator.
Sansara is located in stunning, rural Cambutal, Panama.
Cambutal is a small, rustic fishing village in the province of Los Santos, approximately a five hour scenic drive from the country’s capital, Panama City.
Remoteness is our most prized commodity. Nature, tranquility and serenity fosters growth like nothing else. The rawness and authenticity of Cambutal changes people; it allows you to stop, it allows you to breathe and it allows you to truly let go.
Disconnect to Reconnect is ultimately what we live by.
Our intention is to simply hold a space for you, as the retreat leader, so you can then inspire, help and enhance the lives of your guests. Our aim is to create an atmosphere and vibe that allows you and your guests to surrender, open up and connect with one another. Our focus is YOU and your vision.
Sansara is a beachfront resort and has 11 luxury cabanas.
Our stunning cabanas can be arranged to accommodate single, double, triple or quadruple occupancy. Our space holds up to 27 people to offer a truly intimate, genuine experience for your guests.
Each cabana is beautifully unique and influenced by Mother Nature herself. Crafted by local artisans in Panama, every cabana is designed to inspire serenity and bliss. Infused with essential oils, laden with hypoallergenic bedding and filled with natural, organic body products, these rooms are exactly what your guests deserve on your dream retreat.
The cabanas are just steps away from the Pacific Ocean in one direction and the wild, mountainous jungle in the other.
Sansara has a number of stunning spaces for you to educate, teach and inspire your students.
Our beautiful, open-air yoga shala is constructed with an intricate palm thatched design and boasts phenomenal views of the Pacific Ocean. This sacred space is the ideal location to teach your daily yoga, pilates, fitness or dance classes. The shala is outfitted with bolsters, half-moon yoga mats, straps, wooden blocks, kettle bells and top-of-the-range sound system.
Many retreat leaders use the shala for educational talks, group bonding activities, workshops and training sessions. However you intend on delivering the information, we can help; use our projector, white boards, writing utensil and so much more.
We also have the outdoor stone Buddha patio, the poolside lounge and the oceanfront restaurant to use as your teaching space.
Your participants are encouraged to take full advantage of our other facilities; they can take a plunge in our saltwater pool, swing in a hammock under a palm tree, enjoy a treatment in the open-air massage shala or chill out on their private patio.
Our team of chefs have one goal: to nourish you and your guests.
Our talented in-house chefs are ready and raring to cater to your every need, using the finest, local and seasonal ingredients Panama has to offer. Our restaurant specializes in farm-to-table food with a majority of the ingredients made in-house.
As a retreat host, there is no need to worry about your participants' food allergies, preferences or choices: our team of chefs are experienced and equipped to handle any diet. Each week is carefully curated with a mix of three-course dining experiences or family-style services to enhance connection and oneness between participants.
From fully raw retreats and fresh fish feasts, to juice detoxes and vegan vacations, we have done it all. However you envision the food experience during your retreat, we have you covered.
Your retreat group can also "whet their whistle" at Buddha Bar, that serving world-class cocktails, spirits, fine wines and local artisan beers.
Our favorite way to play here at Sansara is to throw on our swimsuits and head out into the amazing surf.
Sansara is located near a myriad of incredible surf breaks; your participants can rent boards or choose to take part in our world-class 'Learn to Surf Program.' Whether you are a beginner or an experienced surfer, our incredible, knowledgeable instructors will be there to guide you to the next level of your surfing journey.
Your participants will have the opportunity to take part in a number of other exciting, adventurous and inspiring activities: we believe in the moto "work hard, play hard." In between scheduled activities, your guests can kayak to a local snorkel spot, try stand up paddle boarding in the calm bay, take a trip to the secret waterfall, ride horses on the beach at sunset, share stories around a roaring bonfire, find balance on our slack lines, explore Cambutal on our top-of-the range beach cruisers or take long walks on the pristine beaches of Cambutal.
You can rest assured that your clients will have an unforgettable experience while exploring all Sansara and Cambutal have to offer.
