A tropically elegant oasis inspired by a palette of people and places, the Santarena Hotel is a bohemian pearl perched between two of Costa Rica’s loveliest Pacific beaches, in Las Catalinas, Guanacaste. Cosmopolitan minds and curious spirits naturally gather here, gracefully connecting and epitomizing “pura vida” – a life where people and their wellness are top priorities and where nature is cared for and enjoyed by all.
Santarena Hotel is an homage to the old mansions of the great coastal cities of Havana and Cartagena, a traditional gem where sun-kissed days revolve around blossoming courtyards, timeless terraces and picturesque archways surrounded by lush greenery with constant views of the sky. At Santarena, we appreciate luxury but prefer to be in places that feel traveled.
Stylish guest rooms and inviting public spaces are seamlessly woven with gracious hospitality to make this the ideal home base, captivating visitors with an authentic laid-back warmth throughout. Hotel guests are encouraged to rest, relax and decompress, but are also wholeheartedly invited to take advantage of the outdoors, through a wide range of outdoor activities literally at Santarena’s doorstep, including an extensive trail system with over 40 kilometers of hiking, meditation and mountain biking trails as well as water activities such as SUP, kayaking, snorkeling and scuba.
