This property is not just a sale. It is an offering built with love and care. The owner’s dream began with the purchase of the land in 2004. Then he began to build, with each building and pool carefully planned to enhance the ambience of the surrounding beauty and tranquility. The result is more than a retreat. It is a sanctuary where mind, body and spirit are holistically and carefully nurtured.
Present Moment Retreat is nestled between the Sierra Madre Mountains and the Mexican Riviera just off the beaten path in Trocones Beach. Here you have access to hikes, biking and long walks on the beach. Should you choose a more active pursuit, there is diving, snorkeling and surfing. You may also choose kayaking on the ocean/ river or horseback riding on the beach or in the mountains. The adventures are endless.
Present Moment Retreat:
1) Boutique Hotel Accommodations; Bungalows and Casitas
Following the subtle styling of Zen traditions, while honoring the exotic qualities of intercontinental design, our ten Oceanfront and Mountain View Bungalows in Troncones Beach will delight your senses. Each unit is tastefully furnished with a queen bed, organic cotton bedding topped with colorful duvets and hand woven pillows, all tied together under a romantic canopy of cream hued linen. The rain disk showerheads gently cleanse, while local ocean stone flooring massages your feet. Each and every unit boasts an inspiring view of the sea, antique Asian furnishings and fine art, a private deck and calming meditation garden for times of personal reflection. The thatched palapa and antique tile roofs lend an authentically indigenous quality, reflecting the ancient style of Balinese and Mexican old world construction.
2) Spa and Complimentary Health Services
Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) is defined as a broad domain of healing resources that encompass all health systems, modalities and practices along with their accompanying theories and beliefs; other than those intrinsic to the politically dominant health system. CAM includes all such practices and ideas self defined by their users as preventing or treating illness and/or promoting health and well being. Boundaries within CAM are not always fixed or sharp. Alternative therapies include, but are not limited to the following disciplines; Folk medicine, Herbal medicine, Ayurvedic treatments, Detoxification, Faith healing, Chiropractic, Acupuncture, Naturopathy, Massage and Music therapy.

3) Yoga, Qigong and Meditation Classes
Yoga synchronizes movement and breath and takes guests on a journey of rhythmic dance unifying the body, mind and spirit. This flowing sequence of asanas (postures), combined with pranayama (breathing techniques) encourages flexibility, strength, and circulation. A variety of practices led by our certified teachers patiently guide you through sun salutations, standing and seated postures, and end with relaxation and meditation.
Practicing the art of Qigong opens the flow of Chi (vital energy or life force) not only in the areas that we are moving, but also throughout our entire body. This set of graceful movements and postures are like a simple dance designed to balance the body, mind and spirit.
Meditation is the practice of opening to and accepting life just as it is a constantly changing process. To calm the mind and body we practice connecting and sustaining our attention to the ordinary experience of each moment. This simple and clear patient seeing is at the heart of meditation practice. Meditation decreases oxygen consumption, heart rate, respiratory rate, and blood pressure; while increasing the intensity of alpha, theta, and delta brain waves the opposite of the physiological changes that occur during stressful activity.
4) Spa Cuisine
With the extensive coastline of the Mexican Riviera, hundreds of different types of fish and shellfish contribute to the ocean’s rich bounty. After the heavy rains of the summer and autumn seasons, the farmers harvest delicious crops of organic vegetables in a colorful array of tastes and textures. Combining only the freshest of Mother Nature’s natural ingredients, the chefs of Present Moment’s kitchens intertwine the heart and soul of Spa Cuisine to create dishes that linger both on the palette and on the mind. Imagine a forkful of robust Ensalada Bacalao; a vibrant plate of tangy Swordfish Escabeche with addictive crunchy tostones, the sumptuous flavor of plantain-crusted Mahi Mahi with a sweet and savory tropical salsa….all lovingly cooked to order. By using an extraordinary combination of local and international ingredients, our creative curiosity results in bringing you some of the most complex, tantalizing and memorable cuisine on the coast. In addition, our beachside bar offers a full range of premium cocktails, 70+ wines from around the globe, 50 premium tequilas, as well as an intriguing array of fresh fruit and vegetable smoothies/juices, and healthy blended elixirs.
5) Retail Boutiques
Our retail boutiques are exquisite, representing high quality, international and local artisans, creating a convenient and exciting amenity for our guests. The retail boutique business is a large part of our concept, and is expected to be 10% or our overall business. Products include; yoga, qigong and meditation clothing, fashion sportswear and accessories, organic essential oils and body care products, international and locally designed jewelry, antiques and artifacts, incense, candles, music and fine art…to name a few.
