Cascadas Farallas Waterfall Villas offers accommodation, retreats, and adventure tours along with various workshops.
Fateh Kaur Bolivar is an ex-CEO from a stressed out software business. She is a top vegan and raw foods chef and a certified Kundalini yoga teacher. She has had a passion for cooking since her adolescence. She spent five years training her local Costa Rican meals after a lifetime of international experiences in the kitchen. Having traveled the tropical world and having been influenced by the Balinese architecture, she decided that people must live in harmony with nature, which became the theme for the Waterfall Villas, to be in balance with nature and the people of Costa Rica.

Fateh and her staff were attentive & thoughtful with amazing attention to detail. The vegan cuisine was out of this world! Watching Fateh in the kitchen was a lot of fun! She made sure to find out exactly what I wanted to get out of the cooking class and catered her teaching to the things that were important to me. I have already incorporated my new knowledge in my kitchen and my family loves! The setting (Cascade Waterfall Villa) was breathtaking, rooms were comfortable, serene environment, excellent setting for doing yoga and/or meditation. No wifi, but that was ok with me! Make sure to fit in a trip to Hacienda Baru or Nauyaca Waterfalls and/or other local fun adventures, all very close by!

"Yoga Retreat Juice Cleanse "
We were told the roads would be difficult terrain - they were not. Perfectly paved and lit, the trip from Manuel Antonio to Cascadas was a breeze. It was a bit difficult in the dark to find the entrance to the retreat, but it is doable.
We were fed a nice vegan meal upon arrival and began juicing the next morning. The security guard would give me cocunuts when I asked him too, and the cleaning staff was excellent as well as the kitchen staff.
Upon arrival, we were greeted by Tony, Fateh's assisted. We were not advised he would be taking care of us, but he was very attentive and helpful. He has sent me a tremendous amount of literature on spirital items as well as healthy recipes to continue to eat well.

The Owner Fateh was so helpful when I was planning my trip and the through my entire stay. The food was amazing and so nourishing in. The location is a place of magic and we did yoga most mornings which felt really good.

I usually do not write reviews, but my experience at Waterfall Villas with Fateh, the Host and Owner was beyond expectations. So much respect for Fateh and her vision and care in building this property. She has kept the natural beauty in-tack - and even more special with the architectural design, building materials and furniture from Bali. The food was 5 star vegetarian (most veggie places are boring and tasteless, not here) - each meal is so lovingly prepared with special recipes I would never think of. The balance of flavors are exceptional - really! - This is the place for busy people to unwind and re-balance with the healing waterfalls, local healers and every meal something to look forward to. The rooms are beautiful! Right down to every detail, Waterfall Villas is exceptional. Providing this experience day in and day out is not easy - thank you Fateh for taking your time to make everything so wonderful.

This is my second time staying at the waterfall Villas and it is my absolute favorite getaway place to recharge. I stayed there for six nights and every Vegan meal that was prepared blew my mind. It was extremely nourishing and looked like art. Typically, the food was fresh picked from Fateh (the owner's) garden and all the dishes were inspired from places around the world. Some of the best food that I have ever had. The place is designed based on Feng Shui principles and you feel it. I love how you are in the rainforest next to a Waterfall but in a really comfortable environment. Fateh is AMAZING and a true Healer with a variety of experiences.
