“Stunning!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2012

This hotel is just sublime: Travel & Leisure meets Architectural Digest. The hotel is very beautiful. Our room had a huge balcony overlooking the bay and was very peaceful and romantic. The room's architecture is amazing: you feel like you are in a glass box, floating in the jungle, overlooking the ocean. The restaurant, bar and pool are stunning too. The pictures look great but in person it looks even better! If you appreciate modern architecture you will love this place.

This hotel is very small: 6 rooms only and it's in a remote location halfway up a hill, so it's very quiet and peaceful. Because of its size, you will get personalized service.

The staff is very friendly and the food is great. The owners, who live onsite, are very nice and are very proud of the hotel, which recently opened. The food is inspired and very well executed. The ceviches were great and we were intrigued by the use of several local fruits and vegetables we had never tasted before. They mentioned that at some point they want to organize a trip to the local farmers market and I think that would be really interesting. We didn't want to leave!

This hotel overlooks the ocean but it's not a beach hotel. The hotel can arrange for transportation to the beach but it's 15 minutes away, down a steep 4-wheel-only road. We went to the beach once but were happy just lounging by the beautiful swimming pool and trying Adam's amazing passion fruit mojitos.

This is the place for a perfect and relaxing get-away from it all. FYI kids are not allowed so not the place for a family trip. Remote, quiet, romantic, elegant. Would be a great honeymoon destination.

Room Tip: If you can ask for room 5 - wow!!!! Amazing view, HUGE balcony with 2 sofa chairs plus a hammock.

A beautiful peaceful hotel! If you are seeking relaxation this is your place. We needed some time away from work and our two children to charge batteries and it really worked for us. Amazing view of Uvita and Bahía Ballena. Great staff and delicious food! Recommended 100%!
