Our favourite rooms
Those who favour plummeting into water to cool off while travelling in the Tropics will be pleased to hear that plunge pools come as standard in every suite, as do impressive views – for the best of the best though, go for a Villa Sunset, which offer the finest glimpses of the Guanacaste coast.
The saltwater infinity pool is impressive at any given point in the day, but especially so at sunset and after-dark, when fire pits are alight on the surface.
An array of ikat-patterned activewear, to navigate sunrise swims and swinging through the trees on a zipline in style.

This stay is for adult Smiths only.
