SCP Hotels Is Set to Host the Retreat of a Lifetime With Certified Wellness Expert Andrew 7 Sealy
Ready for some much-needed rejuvenation? Soul Community Planet Hotels, also known as SCP Hotels, is hosting an immersive wellness and yoga retreat to help you reset and restore in the first few weeks of 2024. Led by connection catalyst and yoga artist Andrew 7 Sealy, this SCP x Andrew 7 Sealy Elements Retreat includes herbalist workshops from Anima Mundi, yoga, meditation and exclusive experiences in nature. The destination (Corcovado, Costa Rica) is beyond breathtaking, setting the scene for a transformative retreat for your mind, body and soul. Guests can expect to leave feeling not only at one with nature and the elements, but at one with themselves.
Taking place on the stunning grounds of the SCP Corcovado Wilderness Lodge, this five-night retreat is set to be an immersive and soul-satisfying experience. The lodge sits on the Osa Peninsula, which is one of the most biologically diverse places on earth, housing about 2.5% of the world’s biodiversity. Guests will be able to explore nearby Corcovado National Park and enjoy exciting activities, first-class service and the opportunity to unwind in a remote area of Costa Rica. The hotel itself is set on a 170-acre private reserve surrounded by shoreline and rainforest and is only accessible by boat!12/6
Local Insight: The SCP Corcovado Wilderness Lodge is currently closed for renovations, but guests on the retreat will be the very first to experience the newly refreshed property, which features luxurious accommodations.
The adventure begins at La Hacienda, the lodge’s private dock and reception center, in the sleepy town of Sierpe. Here, guests will meet the captain and embark on a 90-minute boat ride through the largest mangrove wetlands system on Central America’s Pacific coast. Be prepared to spot everything from monkeys and crocodiles to all kinds of birds.
“During the retreat itself, guests will be able to really dive into the beauty of nature and the biodiversity of Corcovado,” Sealy says. In addition to being able to ground and regenerate, this is the perfect opportunity for travelers looking to reconnect to Mother Earth.
The five full days (and six nights) will focus deeply on Elemental Reconnection. “Each day is dedicated to a different element,” Sealy explains. “The first day is dedicated to the element of earth so that guests can get grounded.” The second day washes impurities away with the element of water, while the third day focuses on fire to alchemize and embody. Finally, the element of air allows attendees to envision new perspectives. Each day will have specific activities—think tree climbing, scuba diving, herbal infusion gardening and bird watching—to align with the intention of each element.
Local Insight: A leader in alternative energy, waste management and recycling, SCP Corcovado Wilderness Lodge is certified in two sustainable tourism platforms and holds the maximum rating in Costa Rica’s program.12/12
