“Far from the maddening crowd...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2010

Ever dreamed of living in your own tree house, in a jungle, near a secluded beach, but with all the comforts of a boutique hotel and the warm hospitality of staying with friends? Then Ylang Ylang lodge is for you too!
Stroll through the jungle with monkeys howling down to a long sandy beach, just the two of you, then walk on the warm, soft sand of this deserted beach, collecting sea shells and photographing crabs, ride gentle waves in warm waters before returning to your lodge for a dip in the pool. Retire to your own treehouse to watch the amazing sunset from the rocking chairs of your private balcony overlooking the forrest and the sea. Relax in your hamac, watch one of your favorite movies on the DVD in your room, then walk down to the main lodge for a gourmet candlelit dinner...It was paradise for us!
Everything at Ylang Ylang is romantic, secluded, the luxury so rare nowadays of being alone amidst quiet beauty, yet pampered...
In addition, our host drove us to an amazing sea lake to snorkle, and to the neighby village to have our four by four repaired, so helpful.
We will definitely return!

We had a great stay at Ylang Ylang Lodge. Very charming with open air 2 floor bungalows. A bit of wildlife might get invited to your bungalow here and there, but dont worry nothing uncomfortable. FANTASTIC chef at night for dinner. Even if you dont stay there, go for dinner! Nice pool and beautifull sunset. Close to Santa Terese but far enough to keep it "exotic" and quiet. Thank you to Olivier for letting us feel at home!

This place is amazing, situated in the perfect location on the coast. There are several bungalow style rooms that make the resort seem surreal. I would recommend this place because of the location (close to Mal Pais, but not in this overcrowded town), and the style of the lodge.

  • Liked — The bungalows and the staff was really cool
  • Disliked — It was far from san jose, but worth it!
  • Tips/Secrets — Go here! You'll love it!
