The suites offer a level of luxury that belies their remote location – a king-size bed with Simmons Beauty Rest mattress, Egyptian cotton sheets, leather chairs, a spacious bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers and a long deck and a private dipping pool fed by spring water. Each bungalow was built with special attention to the hillside’s topography so that guests enjoy gorgeous views of the river and forest from every area – the bedroom, living room, bathroom, deck and pool.

The adjacent covered deck has a hammock and a rattan sofa, whereas the entire suite opens onto a sundeck with a small stone swimming pool fed by spring water.

    Your spacious (670 sq ft./ 62sq. meters) palm-thatched river-view suite includes a private terrace that opens on to landscaped native bush gardens and towering vine-draped trees.

    Around the corner a raised hardwood deck offers you a stunning view of a massive wall of thick rainforest that cascades down a mountainside opposite the Pacuare River.

    A luxuriously appointed canopy king size bed with crisp 300-thread Egyptian cotton linens, and superior Beautyrest mattress® caters to a serene, restful night’s sleep.

  • Garden View Suite -

    Your spacious palm-thatched garden-view bungalow features a canopy king size bed, futon couch, hardwood flooring, private terrace, and a spacious private bathroom adorned with burnished copper fixtures, private alfresco shower with solar heated water, and a nearly 360º rainforest view—all within an area seemingly removed from time and the worries of the outside world, yet just two and a half hours from San José, Costa Rica’s capital city.
