Highs & Lows

  • Whether you’re having coffee on your balcony overlooking the Pacific or cooling off in the cliff-side pool, everywhere you look the views are jaw-droppingly beautiful.

  • Beds are incredibly comfortable with fresh, crisp linens.

  • With only seven villas, the hotel feels super private and quiet. We spent most afternoons at the pool, yet the only time we saw other guests was at breakfast.

  • You are in the jungle, so expect to encounter some wildlife. Geckos scurry along roofs and walkways and the partially open-air bungalows do allow some little bugs in at night. The mosquito nets aren’t just decorative.

  • The walkway from the front gate to the villas is a steep incline, but the staff is more than happy to help you bring up your bags or give you a lift on a golf cart.
