Say OMMM, Traveloti style

With the holidays in full swing, it’s time to think of the family you choose to be with. Treat yourself and your best friends to the way time off from work should be spent.


So remote, it can be only accessed by boat, Xinalani is a stunning resort tucked away from the small city of Puerto Vallarta. And more than it being just a yoga retreat, it’s a place to breathe (yoga), a place to adventure (surfing and SUP), a place to dream (rooms overlooking the beach and forest), and a place to celebrate (bonfires and margaritas!).

For a week, you have the pleasure of a relaxed schedule, where you can take twice-daily yoga classes with top-notch resident instructors. For each meal, enjoy fresh Mexican specialties made with local ingredients like mahi-mahi and avocados, prepared by gourmet chefs. And after an eventful say of yoga and adventure, even take time to just relax on the beach.

And the rooms! These unique rooms are made to make you feel at peace at the end of your day. Each one features three walls and one open-air side to the beach or ocean, welcoming cool breezes and the sights and sounds of your tropical surroundings. For your best friend getaway, you have an option of fun, gorgeous dorm-style housing (not a typo!).


And if you have a smaller group, you can upgrade to the smaller dorm-style room. Both rooms are elegantly designed in an eco-luxe style with fun amenities like an outside shower.

Check out this itinerary below to discover how you and your friends and can spend a week away in gorgeous coastal Mexico! To book this trip, visit Traveloti.
