Sustainability and modernism combine at Costa Rican wellness retreat The Sanctuary

Midcentury modernism, Japanese stylings and eco-friendly design combine at this modern retreat, which lies in a Costa Rican jungle and is on sale for $2.74m.

The wellness hub was created by Entourage actor and environmentalist Perrey Reeves with local studio Luz de piedra as a private family estate, and it lies on Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula – one of the world’s ‘blue zones’ where people live longer lives due to their environment, lifestyle and diet.

Sustainably built with off-grid services, The Sanctuary at Two Rivers focuses on wellbeing and conservation. It features seven timber treehouse-style casitas (small houses) enclosed in foliage, with double-height glazed spaces. They have overhanging corrugated iron roofs, sliding wooden doors, wraparound balconies, and all-around jungle views, along with modern amenities.

Now run as a yoga and wellness hotel, it has a mountain-top deck with ocean views, a fire circle, swimming pool, cascading waterfall, yoga pagoda, and a dining area in lush gardens. The ‘hotel in a jungle’ borders rivers and hiking trails and is listed with Costa Rica Sotheby’s International Realty.
