Overlooking the Pacific Ocean on the wild west coast of Costa Rica, Punta Islita is a laid-back boutique hotel, stunningly situated amid tropical gardens on a hilltop above its own private volcanic beach.
Ideal for couples looking for that extra bit of privacy and also great villa accommodation for families in their two or three bedroom houses with private pools, Punta Islita’s design is elegant and natural, ideal for guests looking for seclusion. And you can be as relaxed or as active as you like here. Plenty of excursions can be organised nearby such as zip wiring, hiking, river kayaking, horse riding, surf lessons, golf etc. Alternatively, you can play tennis, hit the gym or …. just switch off and relax by the pool at the hotel or down at the beach club beside the ocean. Of course, blissful pampering in the lovely spa is another deliciously relaxing option!
Once you’ve spent enough time relaxing by the pool or lying on the beach, activities at Punta Islita include:
The 14 light-filled Deluxe Rooms have uplifting white walls and wide picture windows overlooking the gulf below. The design is simple and modern with delicate Costa Rican touches. The terrace has two comfortable chairs and a hammock for a lazy siesta. The 8 casitas are more Costa Rican in style, with even more space than the suites, and these have a private unheated plunge pool outside.
For families, we recommend a 2 or 3 bedroom villa. These are privately owned but managed by Hotel Punta Islita and are perfect for families, groups of friends or extended-stays. Rate includes daily housekeeping services. They are located outside Hotel Punta Islita’s grounds but offer full access to the resort’s facilities. There are many options so you may find the one that best fits your travel needs. All villas are fully air conditioned.
12 hour international flight to San José. From here, it’s a 30 minute light aircraft flight to Islita Airstrip. Alternatively driving from San José takes 3 to 4 hours.
