Mexico Retreat 2025 INFO COMING SOON

Pilates at Xinalani Resort

We had so much fun in Puerto Vallarta at Xinalani Resort we can’t wait to get back next year! Back by popular demand, our fourth Vitality wellness retreat! Seven days of sunshine, surf, delicious healthy food, spa services, and two pilates classes a day! Come with us to enjoy the company of your pilates community in a setting that will relax the tension right out of your shoulders and breathe in the Pacific Ocean air. Dates TBD





Xinalani is a Yoga Retreat Center south of Puerto Vallarta, but we’re taking over a little corner of it for Pilates in March. Accommodations are right on the water, all with either ocean or jungle views and sounds. Xinalani is accessible only by boat (Don’t worry! We’re arranging transportation!) so it is quiet and isolated. Now that we’ve done this a few times, we know much more about Xinalani so if you have questions about it, please email Melanie.

How Much

We have pricing ranging from budget-savvy options for folks who want the getaway but are less interested in amenities, to luxurious for folks who want a little more alone time in comfort with their retreat. See below for specifics!

Sign Up

Include bed size / AC if applicable

*If you would like the more economical double occupancy but don’t have someone lined up to room with, let us know that. You can either find a friend to share the space (they don’t have to know anything about Pilates!) or we can match you up with someone else who wants the same deal. We will try our best to help people find those connections. However, the double occupancy rate will only apply with two occupants. Single occupancy rates have gone up due to demand for this retreat.

Should you not use any portion of the retreat or change it in any way, you will bear full responsibility for any additional costs and will not be refunded for any portion of the retreat or any item you do not use.

What should I know up before making a decision:

  • Cost of the retreat covers the following: 7 night stay including taxes, 3 hot meals daily plus access to homemade granola, fresh fruit, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, tea and coffee, transportation to and from the Puerto Vallarta airport, two pilates mat classes daily (Melanie and Jenn S teaching) plus a wonderful beach and tons of wildlife sightings.
  • Prices do not cover the following: gratuities (recommended $15 per night for retreat staff + 10-15% for any other services), spa treatments, excursions, bar drinks, airfare.
  • Accommodations are spacious, lovely and luxurious as well as being indoor/outdoor. They are built on stilts with palm-thatched roofs. They all have hot water. Wi-fi is available but can be spotty. Our experience last year with the wi-fi was just fine.
  • There are no roads but lots of stairs! Really a lot of stairs. This place is nowhere near accessible. If you are unable to go up and down stairs, this is not a good choice.
  • Xinalani is in an isolated section of the coast with no road access, so this is truly a retreat. There are things to do and we’ll plan some excursions but don’t expect easy access to the city.
  • Food is locally sourced vegetables, fruits, chicken, and seafood. Vegan and gluten-free options are available. We all have found the meals delicious and ample. There are small bars and restaurants in the village on the beach next door to Xinalani worth exploring as well.
