Yoga Getaways; 3 A-Rated Destinations Under One Yoga Umbrella

Looking for an A-rated Wellness Getaway? One that’s set in the wonders of nature, encouraging you to get outside and explore? One that offers a variety of guided eco-adventures, from zip lining through a jungle canopy to hiking up an active volcano? Look no further: R&R Resorts is found in stunning locations, including the jungles of Costa Rica, near ancient Maya ruins and Cenotes in Mexico and vineyards surrounding Georgia’s Blue Ridge Mountains.

Not only will these yoga getaways reconnect you to nature, they’ll also reconnect you to your body and spirit: three healthy, locally sourced meals are included daily at each resort, and gentle exercise and spa treatments are available for your participation. R&R Resorts have consciously chosen not to have televisions or WiFi in the rooms so guests can truly be present in the moment, and focus on themselves and their environment rather than the virtual world.

Ready for some real R&R? These 3 A-Rated Yoga Getaways will set you on your way!

Tucked inside the Mexican Riviera, you’ll find the thatched-roof villas of Maya Tulum. Your wellness journey here begins with being immersed in nature: each personal residence is individually designed to let in the fresh air and the soothing sounds of the ocean and features immaculate beds with crisp white linens and well-appointed tiled bathrooms.

For the body, the Yoga Halls offer classes twice daily, including Hatha, Vinyasa, Iyengar and SUP Yoga, and for the mind, the resort also offers an oceanfront Meditation Labyrinth for quiet moments of reflection and an on-site Temazcal Sweat Lodge, where local healers perform soul-cleansing Mayan ceremonies.

Inspired by ancient Mayan traditions, the spa at Maya Tulum Resort offers a variety of spa treatments, including the Mayan Honey Xuunan Kab and traditional Mayan Clay Massage. A full menu of treatments can be customized to fit every guest’s needs, including Hot Stones Therapy, Reiki, hydrating facials, body wraps, exfoliations & more.

Costa Rica may be a small country, but due to its many rainforests, it can be a difficult one to navigate in terms of transportation. Luckily, Pura Vida Retreat & Spa is located just 20 minutes northeast of San Jose International Airport – but it’s a whole world away, too.

Set on a private eight-acre mountainside estate surrounded by coffee-draped hills with stunning volcanoes in the distance. Pura Vida Retreat & Spa is home to four sacred yoga studios, each with striking views of Costa Rica’s lush natural beauty. A unique variety of hatha yoga classes are offered twice daily except on Wednesdays.

But your healing holiday doesn’t start and end with yoga – the resort’s spectacular Wellness Center offers a wide variety of calming therapies, including Ayurvedic treatments, holistic and Asian bodywork, bio energetic healing and Watsu treatments.

Even the rooms were designed to take you far away from the stresses of daily life: Pura Vida Retreat & Spa offers 49 imaginatively designed rooms with lush garden or epic mountain views, from luxurious suites with wraparound porches to A-Frame Cottages and eco-chic Tentalows. Oh, and did I mention the recently renovated pool and hot tub, perfect for chilling out with a cold cocktail?

No passport? No problem. The Dahlonega Spa Resort is located just a short drive from Atlanta in the heart of Georgia’s famous Blue Ridge Mountains. A peaceful oasis dedicated to balance, this Resort Spa is home to a spacious, beautiful Yoga Hall that offers an extensive schedule of hatha-style classes, along with 1.5 miles of private walking trails, a 40 foot walking labyrinth & large outdoor Jacuzzi, where you can end the day with a glass of bubbly. Or, if you prefer staying dry and cozy, snuggle up in a rocking chair on the wrap-around veranda whilst taking in a technicolor sunset with a fresh cup of tea.

All three resorts offer a variety of three-, five- and seven-night getaways, starting at $885 per night for two people. For more information or to book your getaway, please visit
