We just spent a week at Present Moment Retreat. A 30+ minute taxi ride from the airport was as easy as Tom had told us it would be. The space is set up as an oasis cathedral to stopping and arriving, at not what has happened or will happen, but being present in now. The surroundings are kept in perfect...

After a year away the return to Present moment was highly anticipated by myself and my husband. Alas thing have changed for the worse! The bugs ( mosquito and sand flea ) were horrible and despite liberal use of deet spray our palapa and more importantly the beach was almost unusable. In addition the food was not up to par....

I was at Present Moment in September of 2012. It has been a few months and I am still in touch with the staff and the friends I made there. I am not sure if words can describe what it's like there. In fact, I know there aren't enough words in our language. How do you describe the smell of...

Present Moment is one of those rare experienes that is even better than the brochure! Possible the most beautiful place I have ever practiced Yoga. The location, the beach, the town, the service, the people, the food - everything perfect. I just want to move in! Go - Stay - Be Present!

I was so fortunate to have the opportunity to stay at Present Moment for 7 days last month (thanks to Groupon!). When I arrived in the town of Trocones I was a bit worried as it is on a dirt road and seems to be like you are in the middle of nowhere but when I stepped through the doors...

We recently stayed at Present Moment for a wedding and we could have stayed all winter. After a week of yoga, sleep, walking the beach and amazing food we came home refreshed and reinvigorated.

I stayed at Present Moment for 3 weeks for a yoga teacher training. My first impression when I walked in was that the pictures online do NOT do the place justice. It's beyond beautiful. The sound of constantly crashing waves in the background, hummingbirds and butterflies flitting by, tropical plants and flowers filling up the space. It smells good, too....

Present Moment Retreat is a very special place. It's intimate and exposed at the same time. Less than a dozen open-air huts with thatched roofs surround a pool and lead to a yoga platform and bar/restaurant which face a small beach and the majestic ocean. Be prepared to spend your entire vacation outdoors and relish in the the warm sunshine...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our exclusive oceanfront boutique hotel and yoga retreat is situated on a quiet, serene beach in Troncones, thirty minutes up the coast from Ixtapa, Zihuatanejo, Mexico. Restore in a gorgeous setting with wellness classes, yoga by the sea, meditation, qigong, dance classes and more. Rejuvenate with our offerings of spa treatments and healing arts. Dine on healthy gourmet cuisine. Take in the local adventures such as sunset horseback riding, eco tours, waterfall hiking, kayaking, surf-yoga excursions, surf lessons, shopping in our boutique, exploring the village and much more. Our loving staff have pleased even the most discerning guests, and are ready to delight you. Our eleven private bungalows are the perfect antidote to the chaos of everyday life. Each unique bungalow is dedicated to one of the values that we hold in the highest regard. Authenticity was imperative in the construction of every inch of Present Moment. Thus, all bungalows have an indigenous palapa thatched roof, hand-crafted in the Mexican tradition, and are furnished with a pillow top queen-sized bed, luxurious 400 count cotton bedding and a canopy of white linen. ... more   less
