Accommodation

Pura Vida Soul Institute is designed as an eco-therapy retreat center to help guests disconnect from their chaotic lives and reconnect with nature. They offer four custom-designed ‘glamping’ cabins nestled among our tall trees but just a short walk from our facilities. The standard configuration for the cabins are designed for singles or couples staying with us. The ‘glamping’ cabins can comfortably hold up to 10 people.

All suites include the following amenities for overnight guests:

  • Bed with mattress and fresh linens
  • Duvet cover and wool blanket for each bed
  • Night table with portable lantern
  • Mosquito curtains for each bed if desired
  • Overhead lighting
  • 1 usb charging port for phones or personal electronics
  • Deck with muskoka chairs
  • Luggage racks
  • Please note that suites do not include electrical outlets nor private washrooms. These amenities are available in the main studio building.

Every effort is made to assign guests to suites best suited to their individual and group needs, keeping pairs and groups together in the same cabin. However, this cannot always be guaranteed. Group’s of three will be given first priority to Deluxe cabins for all retreats.

If you wish to book a cabin for private use, a privacy supplement fee may be applied for group retreats. Please contact Pura Vida Soul Institute for details if this is requested.

What you should know:

  • The glamping are covered in a large white canvas tent material and set upon a beautiful wooden deck. They include solid wooden beds, mattresses, linens and more.
  • Washrooms are not located within the glamping cabins. They are a short walk inside the studio which means they come complete with showers and many electrical outlets!
  • There are no electrical outlets in the cabins, but you can use ones within the studio if desired. The cabins have 1 usb charger however should you wish to charge your phone.
  • Wifi is not available, but there is cell reception if you need it. Pura Vida Soul Institute recommends unplugging for the weekend to truly relax!
  • The glamping cabins are located in a forest so you may see the occasional bug. Pura Vida Soul Institute has done its best to keep the cabins free of them, but mother nature sometimes gets curious!
  • The cabins stay warmer than you might expect, but feelings of warmth and cold are always relative to each person. Pura Vida Soul Institute has had people stay in the same cabin together and one person was the cold and the other was hot. So, they recommend bringing extra layers with you just in case.
  • Your hosts, Jennifer and Joshua will be on site with you all weekend should you have any issues or emergencies they will be there to assist at any time.
  • If you have any questions or concerns about your accommodations, please be sure to contact Pura Vida Soul Institute before making a reservation.
