Are you looking for a place in the middle of nature to organise your retreat? We are located on the beautiful Caribbean coast of Colombia, 48 km from the center of Santa Marta, between La Ciudad Perdida (Lost City) and Tayrona National Park. YAY Sustainable, is a hotel that is sustainably designed for our guests to get back in touch with Mother Earth. We host different types of retreats such as couples-women-, yoga-, healing-, business- and conscious retreats.

Nestled in the gardens of YAY are 15 cabins, all built from local, natural, recycled materials and techniques due to our sustainable commitment. Each cabin has a private terrace surrounded by nature, allowing for a maximum capacity of 36 people.

Around the lodge, you find a natural spring-fed pool, ponds, along with a private river beach and many cool hangout spots.
