Haramara Retreat Introduces a New "Holistic Honeymoon" Package

The wedding is over, the band is all packed up and the last of the guests have gone home, now the best part of your wedding is ready to begin… your honeymoon. Imagine relaxing at an exquisite yoga retreat, situated on the side of the Sierra Madre Mountains, featuring breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and luxurious open-air cabana accommodations in the resort’s well-appointed honeymoon suite. All of this and much more can be found at Haramara Retreat – a premier destination hideaway designed to restore, rejuvenate and deepen guest’s sense of serenity, spirit and peace.

“We are very excited to offer newly-weds the opportunity to spend their honeymoon with us,” said Sajeela de La Borbolla, General Director of Haramara Retreat. “A honeymoon is such a special time in a couple’s life, and what better way to start a marriage then with an inner-sense of peace and calm serenity. This is why we created the ‘Holistic Honeymoon’ package – it is our special gift to the happy couple.”

New for 2011, Haramara Retreat is offering a “Holistic Honeymoon” package. Created to return newlyweds to an inner state of calm following the hectic pace of planning their recent nuptials, the package includes one breakfast and dinner on a private dinning terrace, daily breakfast and dinner for the balance of the stay, welcome drinks on the day of arrival, a romantic sunset cruise and a 80-minute massage for the bride and groom.  The package is offered at a fixed rate of $2,588.25, based on double occupancy, including 19% Mexico Hotel Tax, and requires a five-night minimum stay.

Known for their holistic approach to luxury, Haramara Retreat prides itself on its return to society’s fundamentals and their departure from modern accoutrements. As such, the entire property is illuminated by the soft glow of lamp light and has parted from the tedious demands of the electronic age. To continue with this holistic approach, the retreat has perfected the art of gourmet vegetarian cuisine and has created an eclectic and creative menu featuring memorable dishes from world class gourmet chefs.

Additionally, to help the bride & groom return to their inner-center, Haramara Retreat offers a host of yoga experiences that range from beginner to advanced that are all designed to nurture the guest’s holistic balance and inner-peace.

However, the fun doesn’t stop at yoga, Haramara Retreat also offers guests a host of tours and excursions such as fishing, snorkeling, whale-watching, sunset sailing, horseback riding, a zip line canopy tour, tour of a crocodile refuge, and shopping in Puerto Vallarta to name just a few. But, if you desire additional pampering, Haramara also offers a plethora of spa amenities that include massages, restorative treatments, manicures, pedicures, facials and body scrubs. 

Haramara Retreat is a secluded and idyllic place designed to provide a natural and supportive environment for individuals and groups searching for relaxation, renewal, and well-being.  It offers the serenity and seclusion, peace and tranquility for relaxing and renewing vacations and enhancing its guests’ physical, spiritual, and mental rejuvenation.

Haramara Retreat is situated on 12 acres of private land between the Sierra Madre Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, near the town of Sayulita.  Nestled into the tropical jungle vegetation on a hillside, it overlooks the wild and rugged coast of the Pacific Ocean and its own pristine, unspoiled beach.

Haramara Retreat can easily be reached by a 40 minute drive from the Puerto Vallarta International Airport via retreat shuttle, rental car, bus, or taxi.
