    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


    • 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.
