This dream home was absolutely fabulous with every detail attended to. The views of the surrounding jungle terrain as well as the ocean were just awesome as were the variety of wild birds and monkeys that we were able to capture on camera! We were fortunate to meet the owners, a lovely couple, Alex and Grace, and enjoy their company... More

We stayed in the Bosque en el Cielo for our honeymoon earlier this month and cannot say enough good things about it. It was better than we could have imagined. Alex and Grace were on vacation during our stay but made sure that we were well taken care of by their groundskeeper, Jose and the rest of the staff. The... More

Our stay at Manu Villas was absolutely exquisite. If there is anything remotely like it elsewhere in Costa Rica I would be surprised. The setting, the facilities, the privacy, the ambiance, the food, the owners'attention to our comfort and details are beyond compare and all the superlatives I can think of fall miles short. Quite simply a place to go... More

Alex and Grace were amazing hosts. Their Balinese style houses are peaceful and zen-like. I spent all morning watching the hummingbirds buzzing over the pool. Grace is the best cook in Central America!

Thanks Alex and Grace for being such amazing hosts. We stayed two nights in the large balinese style villa which Alex constructed. Beautiful woodwork and detail. We got in at night and were completely amazed by the view when we woke up. These all wood balinese style villas are in a nice lush jungly setting. They have amazing views from... More

Thank you so much Alex and Grace for a great stay. The place is gorgeous, remote, romantic and with great potential for families as well. Super clean and cozy and with amazing views. You can totally see the love the owners put in this place. Also we have hired chef services for dinner. Fresh Tuna was cooked for us right... More

It's always with some trepidation when you share with others amazing places and finds for fear that if the whole world knows about it you'll never be able to access it again!! This has been how I feel about Manu Villas -- a definite paradise perched high in the rain forest overlooking the most beautiful Pacific sunsets -- that somehow... More

This both weeks in January were the most relaxing weeks I ever had. The owner are very nice and friendly people and the position of this estate is unique. The daily sunset was incredible - breathtaking! The whole estate is very clean even though it is situated in the jungle! I also would like to mention, that Grace is an... More

For the Aman junkie out there, we have finally found the ultimate in the south Pacific of Costa Rica! Hidden away in the jungles above Dominical - a cool surf town - A few corrections: this is not a Hotel, these are individual houses , very much inspired by Asian architecture or literally Balinese Houses- like the treehouse where we...

My husband and I have recently returned home from a week's stay at Pavilion, one of several houses at Manu Villas. The week was filled with amazing comfort and visual pleasures! Pavilion, a Bali styled house, is beautiful. It offers handsome furnishings, a well equipped kitchen complete with dishwasher and wine refrigerator, views from every room upon either a panoramic...
