ABOUT THE RESORT
Three Sixty Boutique Hotel in Ojochal rests at an altitude of almost 1,000 feet (300 m), where daytime temperatures are noticeably cooler than down on the beaches and the ocean breezes are soothing. The 360-degree views of the jungle, pristine beaches, palm covered islands, and the endless blue ocean show off Costa Rica’s legendary beauty at its finest. Coastal panoramas extend from Manuel Antonio to the Osa Peninsula, the migratory route of the humpback whales for which this “Costa Ballena” region is famous.
Following luxury ecotourism principles, minimal impact construction takes up less than 8% of the property. Architectural design serves to enhance the incredible beauty of the location, and to merge traditional and modern Costa Rican styles.
Twelve unique private villas with sensational ocean views and terraces are designed to offer guests the ultimate escape in luxury. Distinctive art and themed rooms create exclusive spaces.
King-size beds sport Simmons Beauty Rest mattresses swathed in custom 300 and 400 thread-count Egyptian cotton linens by Rivolta Carmignani of Italy. Hand-crafted Indonesian furniture, sofa day beds, luxury towels, indoor rain showers, and Raw Botanicals natural, organic Costa Rican bath amenities surround you with comfort. Additional touches include complimentary Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, flat screen TV, a mini-bar with daily complimentary bottled water, and an espresso machine with complimentary Costa Rican coffee.
