Leaders who choose Samasati have a proven record of delighting their clients. If you are an established leader with a solid record with your clients, we would love to connect with you. We also are open to mentoring new leaders who share our mission to heal.

Are we right for each other?

Over 85% of our guests visit us because they feel lost and seek purpose, are dealing with a recent major life change or simply want a tranquil get away to de-stress and recharge. If this is you, then our retreats can help you heal, rejuvenate and reset.

Forest Bathing

While technology makes our lives easier, the modern lifestyle robs us of our natural ability to cope with stress and fight illnesses. We evolved in nature and it has been scientifically proven that being surrounded by trees and plants unlocks our natural healing abilities. Walking the grounds, swaying in your hammock or lounging by the pool overlooking the Caribbean Sea and the Rainforest, will reduce your stress, boost your immunity, lower your blood pressure and promote a sense of well being that forms the foundation for natural healing.

Plant Medicine

Due to numerous requests, we are now offering plant medicine retreats. Plant medicine, such as Ayahuasca, is a powerful means to activate your inner guide. Find the answers you seek. It can also provide healing for the mind and soul. Participants will be carefully screened to ensure that they can learn from this powerful teacher safely before joining a retreat.


You will be served fresh, locally sourced food and juices. The Caribbean side of the country affords us unique access to food sources untouched by modernization.
