Official star rating:
Set on a lush hillside overlooking Arenal volcano, this elegant family-friendly hotel has spectacular mountain and rainforest views from just about every villa. These sit in carefully tended, semi-wild jungle gardens visited by hummingbirds and parakeets.
Wooden walkways lead through the trees – giving guests close-up contact with nature. Villas for couples or families – with palm-thatch roofs and lush hardwood floors open onto private balcony-terraces with Jacuzzis or baths. The hotel has one of the region’s best spas.
The hotel is located off the winding mountain road that connects La Fortuna town and the Arenal Volcano. The surrounding hills are largely covered in forest, with lodges occupying some of the neighbouring properties.
It feels secluded, yet Arenal mountain, La Fortuna’s restaurants and bars, the hot springs and the canopy walkways and ziplines are all under 30 minutes away.
