Relaxation technique number 1: Hammocks. Can you think of anything better than stumbling upon a hammock that is already put up between two palm trees right at the edge of a white sand beach? Ylang Ylang has a number of hammocks hanging up all throughout the property that are available to our guests. Take a nap, bring a book, or just watch and listen to the sound of the ocean, but most importantly, relax.
Relaxation technique number 2: Yoga. If you’re job requires to sit in a chair most of the day, yoga is the best cure. Not only is yoga good for your body, it also helps to relax the mind. Yoga at Ylang Ylang offers an open air studio with an ocean front view. Ylang Ylang yoga classes are great for beginners, intermediates or advanced students. We encourage everyone to give it a try!
Relaxation technique number 3: The Spa. Ylang Ylang offers a number of different spa treatments with our homemade massage oils. The open air spa allows for you to hear the sounds of the waves crashing while enjoying your massage. Need I say more? There is nothing better to take your relaxing vacation to the next level.
Located just beyond Ylang Ylang Beach Resort is a beautiful relaxing river, with swimming pools, small falls, and cool water called Piedra Colorada River. This river offers a perfect spot to relax, enjoy the sun, and swim to cool down. This is also a great location for kids! The shallow water is perfect for children to explore and play. If you climb a ways up the rocks, you will find small, secluded pools of water and big rocks to sit on and climb. Set up your own hammock in the trees, or bring a towel to sit on. It is a perfect way to add to your relaxing vacation.
A tradition was started many years ago to create rock sculptures out of the stones. Depending on the time of year, you will see hundreds of rock sculptures left behind by people passing by. The rocks at Piedra Colorada have incredible vibrant colors and therefore make for beautiful colorful sculptures. Make one of your own and see how tall you can pile the stones without them toppling over!
After a long day of hot and sweaty travel, the joy and relief once you finally arrive at Ylang Ylang Beach Resort is completely magical. You are welcomed with a cold, damp hand towel to wipe your face and a cool, refreshing passion fruit juice to quench your thirst, all surrounded by the smell of yellow Ylang Ylang flowers.The perfect greeting to get you to jump right in to your relaxing vacation.

Our wonderful receptionists, Cindy, Jeffrey and Katherin, will get you checked in to your room, detail our breakfast and dinner arrangements (which include one natural juice and main course per person), describe the tour and activity options and help you to feel comfortable during your stay here. It is all to help you relax and dive in to your perfect beach getaway and welcome you to our own Ylang Ylang paradise!

When visiting Costa Rica, you’ve got many options when it comes to hotels, restaurants, and activities. It’s a great place for single travelers, couples, and families. Our fantastic hotel is located in a secluded area. It is relaxing because it is not a touristy crowded location in a major metropolis. This is one of the only family owned hotels around. Because it is family owned, your stay will definitely be memorable.
But you don’t have to take our word for it — we’ve gotten plenty of testimonials from travelers who’ve stayed with us. Some of the comments include:

“What an incredible introduction to Costa Rica by choosing your resort!…I remember standing there and taking the sight of the resort in. I actually teared up because it was so beautiful. All of the different types of flowers, bushes, trees, landscape and how the buildings fit into the surrounding of the ocean was exquisite. We were standing in paradise…Thank you all so much for a vacation we’ll never forget and will highly recommend to all our friends and family. We hope to return some day.”
– John and Lara
“This is a gorgeous, relaxing, lovely corner of the earth. we’ve already decided to come back again & for longer.”

Taking a relaxing vacation may seem like a far-off dream, right about now. After all, it is the holiday season, and you are probably swamped with shopping, cooking, and entertaining guests. However, what better time to plan your next vacation than right now? It will give you something to look forward to after the stress of the holidays. Here are some vacation planning tips to get you started!
- Avoid spur-of-the-moment trips. Instead, take the time to plan out the details. You are much more likely to find money-saving packages by planning ahead.
- Choose a destination that is going to leave you relaxed and refreshed. This is your vacation – the last thing you want to do is spend it running around in a frenzy! Instead, choose a place where you can focus on YOU for a change, such as the Ylang Ylang!
- Do some research about your chosen destination to find out what events are on the schedule. You might find an event that you just do not want to miss, which can be helpful in mapping out the timeframe for your getaway.
- Make your after-the-holidays vacation a time for you. You spent the holiday season doing for everyone else, so splurge on yourself this vacation – you can always take a family vacation later on in the year.
- Try not to make a strict schedule for yourself. Leave plenty of time for spontaneity, including just resting and relaxing. You will go home feeling like a new person after a long, relaxing vacation.
