Makanda, the name once said to mean essence or nectar in ancient Sanskrit, is a paradise found.
Hotel Makanda by the Sea is the ideal location for visitors wishing to experience Costa Rica’s natural splendour and variety while enjoying the comforts of first-class jungle lodging. All of the Villas are contoured into the jungle and descending mountain terrain with the abruptly inclining hillsides allowing dramatic ocean views from all locations.
A team of professionals has managed to realize a harmonious solution at the level of 5 stars. Using natural materials, hand-crafted decorations on Artists projects, energy-saving technologies and “smart home” allowed bringing Hotel Makanda by the Sea to a new level.
Dazzling late-afternoon sunsets and tantalizing tropical breezes greet you as you stroll to the beaches of Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast.
A splash of colour catches your eye as an unnamed species of bird or butterfly wings its way through the rainforest.
A challenging hike through the jungle paths lead to a secluded rocky beach cove where discoveries aspire and pre-Columbian fish traps can be found.
At Hotel Makanda by the Sea you will find a number of ways of keeping comfortable on even the hottest of tropical days. The geometrically designed infinity pool has over four thousand square feet of deck space and is perched on a forty-five degree hillside. Spacious viewing decks reach into the jungle canopy, bringing animal life within arm’s reach. Enjoy delicious appetizers as the sun sets among clouds, sizzling as it sinks below the liquid horizon, or sipping on a cool tropical drink while soaking in the Jacuzzi is enhanced by the evening’s cool breezes and spectacular colours.
From our infinity pool, follow the passage of monkeys, sloths, coati mundis, racoons and other jungle life as they wind their way through the surrounding rainforest. Or, unwind in the Jacuzzi while the wildlife watches you!
These are only a few of the many wonders that have captured the imaginations of visitors from around the World as they are quietly seduced by the natural splendour of a visit to Makanda by the Sea.

 

Our Opinion

This was not only a stunning hotel it had rooms to remember for a lifetime. Love the fact it has only 11 rooms so very private. Lovely pool and bar area that was equally private.

The standard of housekeeping is excellent and unobtrusive. Breakfast is served to your room which was a bit quirky and different but much appreciated.

An absolute plus is the reception staff, extremely helpful and very professional
