This boutique–cum–country club hotel has a look that’s part Boruca indigenous ceremonial dwelling (love the palapa roof over the restaurant), but inside feels more like an Italian villa. In the airy, amenity-laden “deluxe” rooms, walls are painted a warm ochre, beds have brocaded comforters, and there are floor-to-ceiling windows and balustrade balconies. The standard “Jungle” rooms are going for a more Caribbean “shabby chic” look, with purposefully distressed armoires and a simpler, woodsy decor. The grounds are lush (you’ll spot monkeys and toucans) and there’s a good-size pool, a spa, and a dining room specializing in healthy cuisine. There are several vegetarian and vegan choices, and most of the produce comes from the hotel’s organic farm. The hotel has earned “5 Leaves” in the Certification for Sustainable Tourism program.
