Upgraded accommodation options — treehouses, cabins, traditional Caribbean housing and a vintage Airstream — newly include kitchens outfitted with Ayurvedic spices and oils. A new space overlooking the ocean provides a tranquil setting for yoga or meditation. The property’s wellness center likewise now offers Ayurvedic therapies, Chinese medicinal therapies, Western massage and bespoke treatments.


Beyond these offerings, though, Finca Victoria has a bevy of wellness retreats planned for the coming months. A Wachuma medicine retreat is slated for late February–early March, incorporating Ayurvedic meals, Janzu therapy and daily yoga. A men’s retreat is also on the docket for March, open to a limited number of participants and focusing on self-exploration and healing.
