This place is magical! A very memorable holiday was had. Filip and Fabi are exceptional hosts and very talented chefs who can cater to any of your dietary needs. My husband and I ate dinner at Las Nubes every night. The private bungalows (4 in total) are a true oasis ... You truly are one with nature here. The resort's... More

Amazing place, amazing food, amazing service. It is a really special experience. Makes you feel good about the world that places like this exist out there. Las Nubes is everything it advertises to be and then some. Highly recommend for couples, families, or solo travelers!

Been there for 3 full days. Great place not only for relaxing but also to see animals and natura. The suite is in my opinion the best place to stay. Might cost some more but worth the experience! Ps. Do not follow your navigation because you will end up on the wrong road.

This place is brilliant as is its owner, Filip. The rooms are great, spiral shaped centred around the shower and having bathroom, bedroom and living room all adjacent. The open gate (no doors here!) open to a nice veranda with views on the mountains. The main building is even better with views over the mountains on one side and views... More

Great relaxing spot 15 mins up a very steep hill from the main road. 4 x 4 definitely needed but when you get there it is a lively little hide away. Watch a beautiful sunset and then bed down in luxury but out at one with nature. Plenty of bugs and birds forest noises to keep you company.

All previous reviews describe it well! Had a great time, very relaxing, delicious food, great scenery and well looked after. Loved being able to see a humming bird on its nest! A hire car took us there but the directions would have been easy to follow.

I have traveled all over the world and I have to say that Las Nubes was very difficult to leave. It's beautiful and peaceful, Filipe's food and company is superlative, and it offers the experience of sustainable living. Whether resting on the hammock outside the cabina, lazing in the Nirvana pool, or doing yoga on the deck, there is a... More

We recently spent 3 nights at Las Nubes and it was a remarkable place to stay. Philip and Augustin were incredible host. Philip is the owner and was with us the whole time, he is a self made person and an incredible host. He can cook up anything you want. And everything is fresh and organic and most of the... More

We stayed in this hotel last January, the nights before New Years. Pros: - The design is lovely, the shower works great, the beds are comfortable - Breakfast was amazing. Dinner was also outstanding, and fairly priced - We saw a lot of animals in our stay. Bright colored frogs, a slug in the middle of the road, a family... More
