Cloud 9 Nicaragua

Envision yourself here. Misty cloud forests. Lush gardens.  Rich hues of red blended oranges, purples, and crimson sunsets.  

Hammock naps. Beach bum days. magnificent mountains.  Be prepared to have your spirit soar on this Cloud 9 Retreat. 

Open-hearted locals. Hummingbirds - crickets - dragon flys - volcanoes.  A true patchwork of natural beauty.


Located in Aseredores, Nicaragua, set between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, it is a Central American nation known for its dramatic terrain of lakes, volcanoes, and beaches.


Nestled in northern Nicaragua we will practice Pilates twice a day, sunrise and sunset on a platform known as a Yoga Rancho nestled amongst gardens, trees, and mountains. 


The menu for this retreat has been specially crafted to nurture your body. This is an alcohol-free retreat. The menu is fully plant-based and anti-inflammatory. All meals are prepared by our chef, nutritionist, and wellness professional Grace Van Berkum and her team. All of the meals are plant-based and locally sourced. The main club house has a fully equipped kitchen where cooking classes are offered. 

Gracious Living Oasis

GLO is a 1-acre, private retreat home handcrafted and built by locals. The main clubhouse has a full kitchen for all nutrition classes, a private movement rancho deck which also doubles as the community dining area for guests. GLO offers simple, clean three-bedroom cottage that sleeps 2 to a room, complete with: 

• 3 secured rooms with ceiling fans and individual bed fans

• A shared shower for 2 rooms, Private shower for Master room

GLO is in tropical nature, that means you will see bugs, spiders, ants around. They are more scared of you then you are of them so resign yourself to co-habit peacefully with your surroundings. 

We would best describe GLO as one step above “glamorous camping”. So if you are ok with that, you will be just fine! 

There is no hot water, but it is hot here so you will love your showers. They are not cold! They are just not hot. Very refreshing. 

Sometimes the power goes out (we live off-grid in nature). At this time we will put on candles and enjoy the adventures and our company. This only happens every few months. 

GLO is a wellness center focused on healing, recalibration, and reducing inflammation as quickly as possible. For this reason, we do NOT serve alcohol or condone the use of drugs. The underlying intention of GLO SelfCare Center is to help you reconnect with the real you so you can live your most empowered life possible.
