“It is just what the regulars come for. In this unpretentious beachside spot, the lobby at times seems more like a family room.”

Conde Nast Traveler

“A fantasy of bygone surf culture so impeccably rendered that you can spend a week there “surfing” without ever actually dropping in on a wave.”

AFAR Magazine

“Refuel with avocado toast or a mango, banana, and flaxseed smoothie at the juice bar.”

New York Post

“A mix of snug surfer-chic rooms and larger bungalows outfitted with outdoor showers and private gardens.”

New York Times

“Surf Survival Camp, held at the Harmony Hotel in Nosara, addresses the common cuts, bruises and bites associated with hanging 10.”

Organic Spa magazine

“Green practices include recycling 85 percent of the waste and treating wastewater without chemicals, composting raw food, running a greenhouse and organic farm and supporting local sustainability programs. The Healing Center uses products freshly made from local plants, fruits and vegetables.”


“I have yet to find another hotel that inspires green living more than this sweet spot in the dreamy surfer town of Nosara, Costa Rica.”

National Geographic

“In a wave-rich country, Nosara stands out as the surf town par excellence. Warm water, friendly locals, endless beaches, powerful river mouths, long point breaks, and virtually year-round high swells make it a veritable surfing Disneyland—without all the lines and overzealous parents.”

The Independent

“If there was a Michelin star for pools I would give it to this one, which is hugged by manicured jungle and orange flowers, with an island of expansive palms in the middle.”


“From the mist of orange-quince water to the lime oil massage and finishing coat of jasmine cream, the service (using ecoluxe Red Flower products) will have you both ready for one last paddle-out at sundown.”
