Arenas del MarManuel Antonio, Costa Rica
Set within an 11 acre private rainforest reserve just a short walk from Manuel Antonio National Park, Arenas del Mar is the perfect place for guests who want to get close to nature without compromising on modern comforts.
The 38 guesthouse buildings were constructed to fit around existing trees. Accommodation includes both ocean view and garden view guest rooms, and two or three-bed apartments and suites all of which offer spectacular ocean views from private decks… the only thing separating you from the rainforest and the crashing waves below.
Arenas del Mar is one of only a few hotels in Costa Rica offering direct, private access to the beach without having to climb lots of steps or travel in a buggy. This prime position with such close proximity to the beach, gives Arenas del Mar that cut above the rest for those looking for the ultimate barefoot luxury. Romantic lunches or dinners can be served right up next the water’s edge.
Arenas del Mar also boasts great eco-credentials: it is a carbon neutral property and was the first Costa Rican luxury hotel to be awarded the Five Sustainability Leaf Award and a Five Star Award.
