Price Guide

Cala Luna

Cala Luna is a stylish hotel about a 15-minute walk from the centre of Tamarindo, in the Guanacaste region of the country. Tamarindo is a popular beach resort with great beaches and it’s known for good surfing too. The little town is a lively place full of bars and restaurants.

If you want to be close to but not in the middle of Tamarindo, Cala Luna is a great choice. It is a 41-room boutique hotel in a lush, jungle-like setting, with an emphasis on wellness thank to its open-air spa treatments, free morning yoga in the yoga pavilion, and organic/sustainable cuisine – which, by the way, is very good, though not cheap.

The focus of the hotel is the lovely swimming pool area which is surrounded by trees (often visited by cheeky monkeys!) and with the open restaurant at one end and the bar/lounge area at the other.

The hotel is not actually on the beach, but it’s just a short 2-minute walk through the property, over a tiny gravel service road at the back, then through a small patch of jungle. The beach you come to is often used for evening sundowner drinks, sitting enjoying the coast and the wonderful sunsets, and it’s a great rock-pooling area. However, due to the rocks, it’s not good for swimming from here, but there is a great swimming beach literally about a 2-3 minute further along the beach.

The 20 deluxe rooms have all you would expect from a high quality hotel (including air-conditioning), and they are stylishly decorated. There are also private villas (1-, 2- and 3-bedrooms), some with private pools, which are great if you’d like more space or want the family or a group of friends together.

Why go to Cala Luna?

Come to Cala Luna for relaxing downtime, to stroll along an uncrowded beach, swim in the gorgeous pool or from a nearby beach, enjoy the freshest fish and seafood, submit to the expert touch of an experienced masseuse … This is a perfect place to unwind. But there’s more if you want it. Tamarindo is only 15 minutes’ walk away and from here you can enjoy the lively bars and restaurants, and the hotel can also arrange excursions and activities for you such as watersports and horse riding. Smiling service and luxurious accommodation are all part of the mix, too.
