Welcome to Hotel Green Sanctuary Surf, Yoga & Spa! You will find a place lost in time ... The recycling architecture blends with nature creating a sense of well-being. We create this boutique hotel thinking not More only in the concept of providing the best service to our guests but also in the commitment to preserve our natural environment. "The First Boutique Hotel BUILT ENTIRELY WITH CONTAINERS". We offer a unique place in Costa Rica, located on the Nicoya Peninsula in the middle of a lush tropical vegetation of Nosara, steps to Guiones beach. Nosara is chosen by great masters of yoga offering an environment for all levels including those with no yoga experience that are simply looking to go deeper into their own personal and spiritual growth. Its beaches are one of the best places in the world to surf; from absolute beginners through to veteran surfers. Not by chance, the country is the third most popular destination for this sport after Hawaii and Indonesia. Year after year these beaches awarded the Ecological Blue Flag. Our mission is more than a simply place to vacation, we are going to make you feel a magical experience. You never saw or felt anything like it... Less
