Casa Manresa / Ignatian Spirituality Center

Our location in South Florida provides a great place with wonderful weather year-round to host local, national and international events. We are located approximately 12 miles from Miami International Airport. In addition to providing Spiritual Exercises, family retreats, and other activities, Manresa Retreat House is the perfect location for weekday meetings, retreats, workshops, conferences, general chapters, and organizations that sponsor their own retreats. The facilities and grounds are available throughout the week for nonprofit organizations to rent for their day, evening, or overnight meetings and events. Our overnight facilities can accommodate up to 68 guests in 34 private rooms, all of which have double beds, private bath and individual climate control.

Our quality meeting spaces range in capacity, starting with the St. Ignatius Auditorium for groups of up to 300, and various other meeting rooms accommodating 100, 80, 32 and 25 persons. Projectors and screens are available in most meeting rooms. WiFi is within reach of all of our conference rooms and most common areas. Our spacious dining room accommodates up to 70 guests in 10 tables, with full food service. We have two separate chapels with capacity for 25 and 54 guests respectively. Our St. Ignatius auditorium can be converted into a chapel to accommodate larger groups.

Most outside groups make their rental arrangements several months ahead of time, since space is limited to the times we do not have activities scheduled. We are open to all faiths and non-profit organizations hosting programs with a spiritual dimension. Services are provided in both English and Spanish.
