Nestled on the northeastern shore of the Dominican Republic, Samaná is a secluded paradise where rainforest meets coast. Brilliant white sand beaches stretch alongside the glistening Atlantic, lush forests offer endless exploration, and the peninsula’s thriving ecotourism scene make Samaná an ideal destination for the Earth-loving adventurer. The retreat centers around Tapas, the Sanskrit word that means, “to heat, to give out warmth, to shine, to burn.” The concept of Tapas teaches us that heat is necessary for purification. Through fiery flow and meditation, you will stoke your inner flame and brighten your glow. When not on your mat, vacation options abound. Lounge at the pool, bask on the beach, curl up in a cabana with a book or two, sprawl out in your suite, indulge in a visit to the spa, or get your ecotourism adventure on. Catamaran tours, zip-lining, parasailing, horseback riding, and hiking are all available. Whether you’re seeking outdoor adventure, poolside piña coladas, or some combination of both, this Samaná retreat is sure to light your fire.
