Wellness, Yoga and Self discovery in Eco Setting
Xinalani was conceived as a tropical haven to host mind-body-soul retreats for individuals, couples and groups in search of a one-of-a-kind experience made of adventure, exclusive contact with nature and inner-discovery. Featuring a state-of-the-art Studio, specially designed for the practice of Yoga and other physical and spiritual disciplines. Immersed in a natural environment of spectacular views, the resort is filled with a serenity that allows guests to discover - and reawaken a more balanced lifestyle.
Born out of the vision of a Mexican-French family with a strong anchor in Architecture, Interior Design, Yoga, Surf and Adventure, Xinalani opened in October 2010 and has offered guests a relaxing WOW ever since.
Offering sea views, spacious palm thatched villas float on stilts. These luxurious handmade eco-chic suites are surrounded by lush jungle, edging a pristine beach, with the only access by boat (a shuttle service available).
Unplug while you enjoy the sensation of the sea breeze from your hammock on your private terrace.
