WELCOME TO A COLLECTION OF LUXURY HOTELS IN COSTA RICA

Small Distinctive Hotels is a collection of luxury hotels in Costa Rica, which are located throughout the most beautiful, diverse, and exciting regions of the country.

Costa Rica boasts the perfect combination of tropical weather, exuberant nature experiences, adventure activities, friendly people (known as Ticos), and a stable democracy. Tens of thousands of tourists come to Costa Rica each year to experience the unique natural environment. Places such as Manuel Antonio, Tortuguero, Arenal, Monteverde, Guanacaste, and Corcovado shine as jewels among the finest beaches and forests in Costa Rica and the entire world.

Costa Rica offers a memorable experience combining freedom with nature. While here, you can stand face to face with an imposing active volcano or swim beneath a majestic waterfall, experience the raw power of a river on a whitewater rafting tour, hike along magical trails of lush rain forest… or just relax while you enjoy colorful sunsets from beautiful sandy beaches.

Review of Hotels COSTA RICAN LUXURY RESORTS

Hotel Grano de Oro is a charming oasis in the city featuring one of the best restaurants in San José. Those who prefer the sun, sand and sea must consider Hotel Capitan Suizo in Tamarindo, Florblanca Resort in Santa Teresa or Arenas del Mar Beach and Nature Resort in Manuel Antonio - all of which are considered some of the best Costa Rican beach resorts available. These beachfront hotels are spread out along the Pacific Coast, each with a unique atmosphere in a special natural setting. Here you can enjoy the water sports and explore the flora and fauna that abound on the Pacific shores of Costa Rica.

While in Costa Rica you must experience the beauty of the rain forest. At The Peace Lodge, you can hike through cloud and rain forest following the La Paz River as it cascades over five majestic waterfalls. Guests can enjoy feeding toucans and hummingbirds by hand or playing tug of war with a 250-pound Jaguar. Other wildlife exhibits include an aviary, butterfly observatory, jungle cat exhibit with five species, white-faced capuchin and spider monkey habitat, serpentarium, frog exhibit and Trout Lake.

For a rainforest experience combined with beach and adventure activities, Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge offers just the right setting. This lodge is located in the Osa Peninsula region providing ultimate tranquility and seclusion, since it is only reachable by boat. A unique nature experience awaits you at this special place.

In the heart of the verdant Turrialba valley, Hotel Casa Turire recalls the gracious charm of a colonial plantation home, where you can relax and enjoy the view or stroll through the exotic gardens. This is the perfect location to embark on the best whitewater rafting trip to be found in Costa Rica.

Hotel Villa Caletas near Jaco beach and Hotel Cuna del Angel on Dominical beach are both properties that combine the best characteristics of beach and mountain resorts. These hotels are perched atop seaside cliffs and offer unrivaled views of the lush forest touching the azure blue water of the Pacific Ocean.

Each member of the Small Distinctive Hotels collection provides first class service, a peaceful, romantic and private ambiance and a commitment to environmental sustainability. This collection of hotels has something for everyone, from honeymooners to families.
