With your group, you have exclusive access to our resort. We ensure that everyone who visits this peaceful paradise on Curaçao leaves well-rested, revitalized, satisfied and full of beautiful memories. You too, as a yoga coach or retreat/group leader, will be talked about for a long time after a retreat week.
“Ananda is a top retreat center for getting back to nature and totally restoring yourself. It is the perfect sanctuary for a yoga retreat”
Ananda isn't just a resort where you can also have a yoga holiday. It's a place that lives and breathes yoga. Everything around you shows that this wellness oasis has been developed by someone with a love and understanding of yoga, mindfulness and meditation. We have beautiful spaces, both indoor and outdoor, with everything necessary for a relaxing session. The well-equipped gym is also at your disposal.
Something happens to you in the labyrinth. It's at the center of our large garden, the place where you can set your mind free. Let yourself be borne away by the almost tangible peace, and the smells and sounds of nature. Many group leaders are inspired by the labyrinth to take their retreat program to a higher level.
Walk, meditate, get into conversation, read a book under an old tree, or come back to yourself on the grown-ups' swing. Dozens of views in the labyrinth literally give you a different perspective on the here and now. After sundown, the special lighting emphasizes the magic of this unique spot.
“Staying at Ananda was absolutely blissful. Walking the Labyrinth was an enlightening and life-changing experience”
Scattered throughout our garden full of native trees, flowering shrubs and medicinal plants, you'll find five luxury ‘island-style’ four-person residences, each bearing the name and a painting of a Caribbean bird. From the fully equipped kitchen to the luxuriously furnished terraces and the comfortable box-spring beds, from free Wi-Fi to air conditioning and cable TV... Your participants will want for nothing! There's a special place (literally) for villa ‘Falki’. Due to its location above the gym, you can not only enjoy all the luxury and comfort, but also the spectacular views.
The four-person villas have two bedrooms, each with two separate single beds each and their own bathroom. For individual participants, there is ample opportunity to withdraw quietly, and single room occupancy is naturally also possible (at an extra cost).
Two of the modern six-person accommodations at our villa resort are detached, with shady terraces on both sides and lots of private green space surrounding them.
The six-person villas not only have an extensive kitchen, spacious living room and large verandas, but also three bedrooms, each with two separate single box-spring beds. Two bedrooms have their own bathroom. In the Villa with a View, all of the bedrooms have their own bathroom. For individual participants, there is ample opportunity to withdraw quietly, and single room occupancy is naturally also possible (at an extra cost).
This place on earth gives us so much that is good that we want to do something in return. That's why we've built our resort as much as possible with respect for nature and the environment. We purify all of the waste water from the garden villas in our own installation for reuse in the garden. We generate a lot of our own energy through solar panels, and make use of sustainable materials that burden the environment as little as possible. Air conditioning is only used in the bedrooms and in common use areas; we use energy-efficient tropical fans for cooling all other areas.
“My goal at Ananda is to offer people tools such as yoga and meditation to help them in their further spiritual development”
Ananda founder Patricia McGraw – herself a certified Vedic Master and Kundalini Yoga instructor – conceived and designed this unique oasis on Curaçao specially for yoga and other retreats, together with her husband Martyn Barratt. Patricia McGraw: “With Ananda, we wanted to offer the perfect place for people to retreat, relax, revitalize and renew. Our ambition is to enrich people's lives and make transformation possible. We therefore cordially invite everyone to get closer to themselves at our resort, and to connect with others.”
