Important Bits

    Bossa nova, jazz, moody stuff.

  • Year Opened

    2002

    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.

    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).

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

  • Price

    Not cheap but worth it.
