We stayed at a very nicely appointed, privately-owned, first floor, air-conditioned, 2-bedroom condo, a Tao Wellness Center residence, and found it to be very comfortable. We had use of the facilities there, as well as many of the amenities of the huge Bahia Principe resort across the highway. We paid extra for the 'all inclusive' option there for 1+ night,... More

Set in a very tranquil setting although a little difficult to find this gym is very enjoyable to work out in. I loved visiting this centre but if my sister hadn't stayed previously I wouldn't have a clue where it was. Would be helpful to have colour coded notices for locations or road directions.

Currently part of the complex is under construction. It's a beautiful, safe location. The wellness center which is a bargain for "owners" isn't a bargain for travelers. Eat there only if that's the only option for whatever reason you have. Just outside the gates are fantastic places to eat.

My partner just wrote a review about the tao wellness center, I wanted to comment further on this. Maxi was rude and unhelpful at the reception, He had a bad attitude and not really wanted to talk to us... Maybe he is homophobic, im not sure but I dont think that in 2016 he should be that way.. Anyway more... More

A few weeks ago I visted the Tao Wellness Center with my partner. I was greeted by Maxi at the front desk.. his customer service is a disgrace. This is supposed to be a wellness center, however his energy was heavy and hard to deal with. I had booked a massage but had to cancel it... The next evening we... More

Great wellness center in the jungle with fresh delicious green juices everyday. Daily yoga classes plus a excellent gym and lap pool. You get the serenity of a wellness center with the restaurants and beach clubs close by. The worldly staff was excellent and the services were great. It was very interesting talking with the staff to see how they... More

This is a great stop for any history buff, especially if you are Jewish! The interior is just amazing, with a sand floor and woodwork that is beautiful!

Used the gym and a trainer while on vacation. This place is exquisite - and so close if you are staying at TAO itself. The equipment is new and more than adequate for maintaining your fitness regime. We didn't use the spa or any other facilities - including the beautiful lap pool.
