dalijo retreat center

Thank you!

Dear D’Alijo Yoga Center, Thank you so much for opening your home to us! This is the most beautiful place I’ve ever been. The veggie food is incredible. Everyone is so nice, thank you for understanding our silent retreat experiment. Everything was perfect!

I stayed more than planned

I had scheduled a two week stay. After three days here I changed to be here an entire month. The kindness & loving service surrounded by beautiful trees & clean waterfalls. This place is soul food. Francisco Morales-Bermúdez – Synergy Yoga.


The resort is absolutely magical. Every little detail is a witness of the love and compassion that’s spreading in the aura of this place and its people. I LOVE IT <3 Sofie Nishida – Privilegium
