Personal retreats are not currently available. Please visit A Time To Reflect for more options.

Personal retreats consisting of one or more nights at Esalen may be available on a last-minute basis only (3-5 days in advance, except when announced in our eNews or on our website). We do not keep a wait list for personal retreat.

Please note that while personal retreat is rarely available, it is possible to make advance reservations and be on a wait list for A Time To Reflect.

Personal Retreat rates are per day and per person unless otherwise noted. Rates include accommodations, three meals per day (dinner on the day of arrival, breakfast and lunch on the day of departure) and access to all Esalen amenities. Prices listed do not include accommodation tax, which is added at the time of reservation.

Cancellation Policy: If you cancel more than seven days before your Personal Retreat, a $75 processing fee will be charged for each cancellation (per person) and the remaining balance will be refunded. If you cancel with less than 7 days notice, you will forfeit the price of one night's lodging (per person).
