Yoga Retreat at Bird Island Bungalows


Group getaways are our specialty at Bird Island. Whether it's a yoga retreat, a family reunion, a gathering of friends, a ceremony, or a small company off-site, our hospitality team will coordinate with group leaders to plan the perfect visit based on their goals, budgets, the needs of participants. We will help coordinate transportation, allocate rooms, prepare meals, organize excursions, and coordinate schedules so that groups can focus on connection and enjoyment. Discounted lodging and meals are available to groups whether they book the entire resport, or only a portion of the rooms. Rates will vary depending on group size (up to 25) and the time of year.

Yoga Class at Bird Island Panama

"We were so impressed with the hospitality, service, and attention to details.  The hotel itself is located in a beautiful area on Isla Colon and we couldn't get enough of the spectacular ocean views and immersion in nature.  We swam every day of the retreat.  The food was another highlight of the retreat.  All of the ingredients were so fresh and tasty and we loved that they were able to accommodate a range of dietary restrictions, including vegan and gluten free, while still maintaining high quality, flavor, and variety.  The experience was a true retreat for everyone and we all left feeling relaxed and recharged."

Five reasons to book your retreat at Bird Island:

1. Bird Island is oriented toward yoga retreats

Our owners are devoted yogis, and our vision is to create a tropical haven for individual and group yoga retreats, teacher training, and mind-body workshops. We promote healthy living, yoga philosophy, and meditation skills in everything we do. We constantly incorporated feedback from studio owners and retreat leaders, to improve our facilities and offerings and continually improve the Bird Island retreat experience.


2. We offer professional support

We understand that leading a group of students on an international yoga retreat can be a monumental challenge. So we focus on being fantastic hosts to your students and a supporting partner for you. From the moment you inquire to the moment you leave Bird Island, we do our very best to create a life-changing experience that everyone can cherish for years to come.


3. We're obsessed with getting it right

When it comes to your retreat, the details matter. Our goal is to manage logistics so group leaders can bond with students. Coordinating ground transportation? No problem. Facilitating day excursions? Check. Organizing meals and lodging to accommodate everyone's needs? You bet! Our team is here to ensure that group leaders don't have to fret about the small stuff.

4. Our food is fantastic

We cook with love, often with ingredients sourced from our garden, and believe that every meal should be an opportunity to nourish both body and soul. All our meals are locally sourced and plant-forward, with many vegan options. We always offer additional proteins to any meal: fresh mahi-mahi, tuna, shrimp, chicken, tofu, and chorizo. And we are happy to accommodate dietary needs or restrictions.


5. We are socially responsible and eco-friendly

Our water comes from the sky and our power from the sun. We are committed to making a positive change in hospitality by embracing eco-friendly practices (recycling, composting, low energy use), educating guests on the local culture and environment, and respecting our community (hiring mostly locals and investing in the personal growth of our team).
