The Nicoyan Peninsula’s hippest hangout, the award-winning Punta Islita is made up of a perfect group of huts set in their own idyllic secluded bay. Choose to simply unwind on the hotel’s volcanic beach, or beside the heavenly infinity pool, for an experience to soothe your mind and calm your body. Or immerse yourself in the more energetic activities from canopy zip-lining, horse-riding, surfing, or sea kayaking out on the azure ocean.

Location

Situated amid stunning tropical gardens high above a long secluded beach on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast, Punta Islita is magical retreat. Promising rugged landscapes, stunning beaches, a thriving tropical forest, and colorful local Guanacaste communities, this luxury resort goes the extra mile to fuse luxury with a commitment to sustainability and local economic development. A hotel with a heart, just how we like it.

Your room

Everything at Punta Islista is designed for sumptuous comfort and relaxation. The suites come with jacuzzi s and private decks (perfect for that all-important sundowner) and locally hand-made comfy wooden four-poster beds, or opt for a larger casita with it’s own private pool, garden and dining terrace to truly indulge in everything Punta Islita has to offer.

Why we like it

We can’t get enough of the candlelit dinners found at the exceptional open-air restaurant. Or for a real treat you can organise a private table on the beach for the perfect romantic finale to a day at Punta Islita. We also love winding down at the world-class spa, offering soothing therapies that come with inspiration from the local Chorotega tribes.
