Experience, Learn, Connect & Relax
Unique and Authentic Lodging Experiences combining Luxury with Sustainability
When we ask our guests what they consider to be the most important amenities during their stay, often times their response is not about shampoo bottles or room service. Rather, our guests are instead seeking authentic and meaningful experiences to replace the standard amenities and services of a typical tropical holiday.
The combination of luxury and sustainability is summarized in our philosophy of Experience, Learn, Connect and Relax. We look to create unique and memorable experiences at all levels of our operations, always providing a sense of place that takes into account the local environment and culture.
Experience and interact with nature & wildlife in close proximity, similarly to a safari experience in Africa. Often you don’t have to go far, as our hotels and lodges are built within natural habitats and the local flora attracts animals. Wake up with the sound of howler monkeys, marvel at beautiful tropical flowers or catch a wave at sunrise.
Learn how to prepare authentic Costa Rican dishes and cocktails or acquire a new skill, whether at our free Spanish lessons or Salsa and Merengue classes. Educate yourself about a whole variety of topics, ranging from coffee to culture to history, and feel immersed in your experience through the interpretation of the flora and fauna and our sustainability efforts by our enthusiastic local guides.
Connect with our staff and local community by joining them in a soccer game at the beach or accompanying them on an improvised fishing trip. Most likely they will also share with you the best place to surf or the best place to get cold beer and local food. Visit local schools to learn about our efforts to improve rural education or reconnect with yourself during one of our yoga classes or wellness treatments.
Relax and don’t forget that you are on vacation. Hammocks are the key for this; settle into one of your own to find peace and decompress. Leave the electronic devices behind. Meet other guests at the bar and sip a tropical cocktail or glass of organic South American wine.
