Important Bits

  • Type

    Boutique hotel

  • Vibe

    Unreal levels of relaxing.

  • Location

    Off-the-grid just enough, situated on top of a hill with no neighbors. Beach can be reached by trail, town is a 15 minute walk via jungle path.

  • Rooms

    Nine - the rooms are more like small houses.

  • Music

    Bossa nova, jazz, moody stuff.

  • Year Opened

    2002

  • Designed By

    Heinz Legler and Veronique Lievre, founders of Boutique Homes. The hotel was meant to be a private one house retreat that expanded naturally over the years.

  • Pool/Gym

    Yes, infinity pool with stunning jungle view. Let the walk there be your gym. Yoga is offered every morning.

  • Restaurant

    Really good, fresh, gourmet-style Mexican food.

  • Bar

    Bar with a view, great selection of mezcals.

  • Minibar

    No mini bar (but you do get your own clay water filter).

  • Wifi

    It works for the most part.

  • Children

    Wouldn’t bring them unless you plan on carrying them uphill the whole time.

  • Price

    Not cheap but worth it.
