This charming Boutique Hotel, Health and Nature Lodge located in Playa Ostional on Costa Rica’s northwest Pacific Coast. Its close vicinity to the world famous turtle beach of Ostional makes Luna Azul the ultimate place for the observation of the big “arribadas” when hundreds of thousands of marine sea turtles are landing at night for nesting. You will never forget this unique experience again!

Luna Azul offers you elegant lodging in spacious bungalows, fine dining in our ocean view restaurant and all the amenities of our health centre: Medical massages, homeopathic treatments, Reiki classes….

Would you like to combine finest accommodation with adventurous activities in an unspoiled nature? Look no further than Luna Azul: Swing over the valleys on the longest canopy tour in the world, ride on horseback through lush mountains and along pristine beaches and finish your day with a rebalancing massage on the veranda of your bungalow. An experience you will never forget!

The Hotel is located about 1 km from the Turtle Refuge of Playa Ostional, one of the most important nesting sites of the Olive Ridley turtle (Lepidochelys olivacea) in the world. You can observe turtles laying eggs on Ostional beach almost all year round, but the big mass arrivals (“arribada”) only occur during rainy season, from May to December. Thousands of females come ashore to lay their 100 to 120 eggs in the black sand. Biggest reported arribadas comprised 300`000 – 500`000 animals! Can you imagine the millions of baby turtles hatching 50 days after each arribada?

Besides the outstanding conditions for turtle observation, Luna Azul offers a very interesting bird and monkey life. Go on a hike through the tropical forest of the Biological Reserve surrounding the hotel and along Rio Rosario to the beaches – the Howler Monkeys will accompany you!

Hotel Luna Azul is close to the very beautiful beaches of Ostional (1 km) with excellent surfing conditions and to Playa San Juanillo (3,5 km), 4 romantic tropical bays protected by a reef, 3 of them with white and one with black sand.

The excellent surfer’s beach Playa Guiones in Nosara is a 25 minutes’ drive from Luna Azul.

Our opinion

Luna Azul is a beautiful, tranquil oasis on the Pacific Coast of Guanacaste. The place is tidy and nicely landscaped. The infinity pool and the bungalow rooms with open-air showers are really lovely. The hosts and their staff are equally delightful. It’s wonderful dining out on the open veranda with all the sultry sights and sounds of the tropics surrounding you. Rolf and Andreas are exceptional hosts and excellent guides to the Playa Ostional region. They have a wealth of knowledge of the local flora and fauna, and they have plenty of great ideas on what to do and see here during your stay.

You will not regret staying here. Enjoy living la pura vida!
