I neither did yoga or meditation at Koralia Beach and yet it was pure relaxation. Located away from the stress and noise of public beaches and cities in the heart of Tayrona national park you’ll find peace in nature. All huts have their individual touch and are equipped with a comfortable bed with mosquito nets. Reduced to the most necessary...

Spent a week there with a yoga retreat in early February. Setting was wonderful, food was outstanding, staff was superb!!!!! Accommodations were very fun (be prepared for no hot water - not a big deal!!!!!) Shower and toilet were outside but inclosed. This is not a tropical beach good for snorkeling and swimming (was particularly ruff when we were there)...

Not for everyone, but if you really love the nature and want to run away from the city and have some peace, this is absolutely the place for you. The first thing: this is not a resort with pool parties and free drinks. This is a place to enjoy the nature, the beach, to meditate, to relax seeing "la sierra...

Excellent. But they didnt welcome us very good since we didnt have any reservation. Stayed one night, had a great time. When checkout there was a mistake in our bill charging us more than we had consumed and they thought we were lying about it.

Stayed two nights as part of a GAdventures tour. Had a bungalow (Shanghi) with double bed, porch with a hammock, and an attached, outside toilet, sink and shower – all of which fit in with the tropical, well-kept grounds. Bugs were not too bad; there was netting around the bed and screens on the doors and windows. Ceiling fan made...

We stayed at playa koralia for 3 nights in April 2015 to end our 2 week trip through Colombia and it was the perfect beach resort for us. The rooms (we normally stayed in the junior suite but got upgraded to the suite!) are exactly like the pictures posted here on tripadvisor, very romantic and clean, with beautiful outdoor bathrooms....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Privacy is found as the ocean breaks on the beach and you are the only one to witness its fall. Playa Koralia gives you that experience and more, one hour away from Santa Marta (Colombia). Time stops as nature defines each space; sand, paradise, sea, fresh water, palms, light & shade. The elements come together where the rivers flowing from the snow-capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada flow into the blue Caribbean. ... more   less
