We can host up to 15 guests in our three accommodations – 8 Casa Grande, 4 Casita Violeta and 3 Casita Mimosa – while we can accommodate up to 35 people in our event space. For group workshops or vacations, we can provide all meals and refreshments.

Our event space is ideal for yoga or wellness groups, weddings, and special events. For group workshops or vacations, we can provide all meals and refreshments.

Casa Grande

Casa Grande is The Seed’s stunning heart and a one-of-a-kind eco-villa experience.

Casita Mimosa

Sleeping up to three guests, this sustainable bamboo house features a private garden and romantic mezzanine bedroom.

Casita Violeta

Up on the hillside surrounded by lush vegetation, our newly-built Casita Violeta gives you an amazing feeling of living in the forest tree tops, with beautiful natural views from both bedrooms and a private garden area.

Common Areas

Whichever property they choose, our guests have access to all of the common areas; extensive tropical gardens with quaint little hidden spots, sauna, plunge pool and a lovely children’s play area.

Reconnect with nature and nourish your spirit as you spend some peaceful time outdoors surrounded by natural beauty, or find out more about the bountiful food and medicinal plants that we grow and harvest.

The Casa Grande ‘big house’ outdoor common areas offer guests stunning views of the lake and the forested mountains that surround us. Guests are drawn outside to the serenity and charm of our large tropical hardwood veranda with its majestic views, large comfortable sofas and chairs scattered with locally handmade fabric cushions and covers, and big outdoor dining table.

You will feel like you are in an upside-down forest surrounded by the veranda’s striking hanging clock vines, while the veranda is a dream for birdwatchers who will spot numerous kinds of hummingbirds feeding on the nectar.

 

THE GARDEN

Our garden is our soul, a gift of abundance and beauty that profoundly nurtures, heals and inspires all who come here. Carefully designed to mimic nature, it creates an orchestrated and joyful chaos for The Seed environment; one where plants, animals and elements thrive.

Built on a gently-sloping hillside, we have created very different environments to experience; from the majestic lake views up the hill, to meditation corners with romantic little shrines and the healing vibes of our medicinal plant garden.

Everywhere you look, you’ll see food and medicine growing, mixed with an outpouring of vibrant ornamental plants and exotic flowers.

Stroll through our fertile gardens, watered by our own natural springs, and take the time to enjoy the many little nooks and secret corners we have created for guests to unwind and recharge. Stargaze at night, taking in the beauty of the dark night sky far away from the light pollution of cities.

SAUNA

Purify and detoxify your body and mind by spending time in our handcrafted dome sauna, inspired by the traditional Mayan saunas. This space has the most amazing acoustics, making it perfect to hold a sound healing or mantra session within it, or just to let yourself loose and sing while you detoxify.

A few steps away we have placed a fabulous bamboo spiral shower and a natural plunge pool to balance the heat sessions with cold soaks. The sauna fits 6 people comfortably at the same time.

ROOFTOP SHALA

Our magnificent rooftop terrace serves as a one-of-a-kind event, yoga or workshop space. This covered, open-air space provokes a deep feeling of connection with nature, given the magnificent 180 degree views of the fertile, lush tropical mountainside and sparkling gorgeous blue lake surrounded by volcanoes, that will bring a sense of awe to your experience.

With a covered surface of 100m2, this space becomes the most inspiring Yoga shala, offering the free use of yoga matts, gorgeous custom made straps, wooden blocks, as well as tons of cushions and blankets.

Featuring a two-burner stove and large sink, this space becomes the perfect setting for multiple workshops in need of kitchen use, like herbalism, cooking or natural dyes.

We also offer the use of two large tables with benches that sit around 16 people (at no additional cost). For weddings and events, we can provide an arch where a flower decoration can be set up, as well as a 3-people stage. 100m2

KIDS PLAYGROUND

In the lower garden, we've created a spacious area featuring a playhouse with a slide, swing, and aerial silk (this last one only available in the dry season).

Our guests are invited to enjoy this space where children of all ages can run freely and play!

Located right next to our pond and sauna areas, this part of the garden becomes a hub for families and groups.

PLUNGE POOL

While the lake is just a ten-minute stroll away, for a more immediate dip, we have crafted a petite natural plunge pool in our garden.

With a built-in bench for soaking and plants growing inside. This 2m-deep tiny pond is deep enough for you to jump in or just sit and soak in the cool water.
