In a category all their own, these handsome villas are in the middle of thick forest and on the edge of a gorgeous stepped waterfall. The Balinese-inspired décor features four-poster beds decked out in white muslin mosquito netting. All the villas open onto patios or balconies with views of the rainforest or waterfalls. Specializing in unplugged, vegan yoga retreats and general mind-body rejuvenation, this boutique hotel and wellness retreat center is about 8km (5 miles) outside of Dominical proper. An accomplished on-site kitchen puts out predominantly vegetarian, vegan, and raw foods. Sorry, no Wi-Fi.
