The Harmony Hotel

Owned by a couple who met surfing locally, The Harmony Hotel offers rest and relaxation in a beautiful beachfront setting, plus as much, or little, adventure and activity as you want. Water babies will love the chance to surf and kayak, and nature lovers will be off exploring local reserves on foot and by boat. With opportunities for cycling, horse riding and canopy tours, you’ll be spoilt for choice. When relaxation calls, head to the beach or pool for some solar therapy, treat yourself to massage at the healing centre, and enjoy fresh produce in the open air restaurant and a delicious smoothie from the juice bar. When you crave some me-time, your room has a secluded terrace complete with an outdoor shower and hammock. Perfect.

Why go to The Harmony Hotel?

Awake to the call of howler monkeys, as another day begins. After an al fresco breakfast of fresh fruit and granola or a burrito bursting with flavour, ponder the day ahead. If you’re feeling active, there’s surfing and paddle boarding, cycling and horse riding, or you might opt seek out the many birds, mammals and reptiles in the nearby nature reserve. Otherwise why not just wander down to Playa Guiones for a lazy beach day, or spend a few hours soaking up some sun by the pool where a waiter is on hand to serve you drinks and snacks. This balance of activity and rest is almost impossible to resist.

Wildlife around The Harmony Hotel

The cry of the howler monkey is a familiar sound in the hotel gardens, as is the sight of hummingbirds flitting from flower to flower. You’ll see even more birds in the Nosara Biological Reserve, where over 270 species have been recorded, and the Lagarta Reserve has monkeys, coatis and armadillos as well as an avian abundance
