A romantic stay in a villa at a luxurious paradise on the Guanacaste coast, including breakfast

The original Casa Chameleon in Costa Rica’s Mal País boasts heaps upon heaps of awards and celebrity endorsements. If the minimalist architecture and spectacular views of the Guanacaste coast are any indication, it’s looking like the brand-spanking-new Las Catalinas location is going to follow suit. Each accommodation at this beautiful retreat was designed to immerse you in Central American nature, with a sleek villa set-up and panoramic plunge pool. You’ll even get to wash off post-dip with locally made bath amenities, or arrange private spa and salon services, featuring local flora and fauna.

For a taste of Costa Rica, Sentido Norte Restaurant prepares three daily meals of fresh, healthy and often raw fruit-and-vegetable-based dishes: fruit smoothies, collard-green veggie wraps with avocado and other farm- and sea-to-table treats. You can also sign up to zip-line, raft, hike, bike, bird-watch or even surf nearby. And to thank nature for all it contributes to the guest experience, the hotel proudly offsets its footprint wherever possible, conserving water, using energy-efficient lighting and cleaning the beach once a month.

Good to know

Please note that the town of Las Catalinas, a five-minute walk from the hotel, remains under development in certain areas. Construction takes place from 7am to 5pm daily, resulting in some noise audible from parts of the hotel.

Also note that property is adults-only, and guests must be over the age of 16 to stay here.

Villas

Your villa at this adults-only escape is truly stunning, with clean, minimalist lines that let nature serve as the main attraction. Extras run from Bluetooth speakers to 480-thread-count, 100%-cotton linens, plus a private terrace and minibar with Costa Rican treats. The main attraction, though, is your private saltwater plunge pool.

The Villa with plunge pool faces south and overlooks Sugar and Penca beaches, with a partial view of the Pacific. To maximize your coastal setting, opt for a west-facing Villa sunset with plunge pool, which features incredible views of the Guanacaste coast and Catalinas Islands (and yes, of course, stellar Pacific sunsets).

Dining

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are affairs to remember at Sentido Norte Restaurant, which takes the task of sourcing healthy local ingredients to a whole new level. Expect Costa Rican coconut oil and raw, fermented and sprouted produce at breakfast, salad and Buddha bowls at lunch and sea-to-table plates at dinner. You can also sip a cocktail here, while enjoying the ocean views from the dining and drinking area.

Location

Whether it’s surfing, snorkeling, hiking, biking, fishing or stand-up paddleboarding, your outdoor activity of choice is most likely available on the property or through one of the partner suppliers, such as Origen Escapes. (For biking alone, there are 13 miles of trails.) There's zip-lining and bird-watching, too. For swimming, take to the waters of the beach club, or get your fill of scenic vistas of sand and sea from your villa – where you can take a private yoga class.
