Meticulously carved out of an Andean mountainside in the mystical valley of Vilcabamba over a period of many years, MonteSueños is an eco-retreat like no other!

MonteSueños consists of two adjacent self-contained houses, and a new art center, comprising over 600 square meters of interior magic as well as expansive al-fresco settings.

MonteSueños greets you with:

  •     Conference/Event facilities for up to 100 people

  •     Nine guest bedrooms, each with private bath

  •     Open fireplaces, Internet connections, and New Age library

  •     Housekeeping, meals, laundry service options

  •     Breakout areas, cabanas, and outdoor dining

  •     Fascinating art, decor, cozy nooks, lush gardens, and a waterfall

  •     Walkways, retreat space, meditation center, and other private areas

  •     Horseback riding and/or hiking into Podocarpus National Park

  •     Ideal year-round climate, and healthy local food

  •     A mystical and rejuvenating ambiance

MonteSueños is an ever-evolving idyllic paradise, creatively blending architecture, sublime artistry/design, and breathtaking natural beauty.

The result is a truly wondrous retreat space whose beauty is matched only by its comfort, versatility, and the friendliness of its hosts.


It is Meredith’s dream that MonteSueños become an international destination for everything from weddings to concerts to retreats; from seminars, corporate meetings and getaways, to Film, Literary, and Music Festivals.  In addition to the following events, MonetSueños has hosted several concerts in 2018 including international stars
Alki Steriopoulos, Su Terry, and Peggy Stern.  A group of Buddhist monks in recent residence declared MonteSueños and its environs a unique world power vortex, necessary to the continued health and nurturing of Planet Earth.
