Santa Teresa Beach is just by itself one of the most beautiful places I´ve ever been to, and this seems to be, not only my perception, but Forbes Magazine perception too, since this year was named one of the top ten most beautiful beaches in the world. Being here is just enough to say, you are already somewhere very close to paradise, however I discovered you can be a lot closer.
The first weekend of this month, I embarked myself into a new adventure and spent a few days at Pranamar Oceanfront Villas and Yoga Retreat, in the beautiful Santa Teresa.
What can I say? Well, to be honest, this was one of my favorite trips of the almost gone 2011.
Everything, from the yoga class to the stunning view of the ocean on my second floor deck, everything was absolutely great.
Spent two nights here and didn´t want to leave, my whole stay was truly amazing. On my first day I arrived just in time for lunch and had the chance to enjoy a delicious healthy Burrito with a great welcome cocktail made out of ginger, limon and tamarind. The restaurant is inspired as the whole property on the baldi architectural style.
The rest of the afternoon and night were delightful; stayed at the Kula House, an ocean view two story house with two convenient decks in each floor, a perfect accommodation for big families or group of friends. The house is fully equipped with kitchen, small living room and two particular bathrooms, one of them has the shower outside letting you enjoy a more natural and relaxing shower immersing your body into the tropical ambiance of the property.
The two sunsets I got to enjoy were truly spectacular, the scale of colors given by the sun, the ocean and the sky mixed in a perfect way to just sit, feel the sand in your feet and let everything go!
During the nights, the second floor deck was ¨the place¨ to spend a calm night enjoying the breeze of the ocean and listening the waves of this beach.
On my first morning I had the chance to enjoy a yoga class with Andy, just the perfect element to combine with the settings of the property.
The restaurant is another history, ohh my god! The food is absolutely amazing, everything from the healthy and unique breakfast options to the special dinner menu, I don´t think I´ll have enough words to describe it. Amazing food and great service.
A walk thorugh Hermosa beach in my last morning closed this unbeatable visit to Santa Teresa, taking my last memory pictures and leaving a piece of my heart in here! What a weekend, an unforgettable experience!
I certainly can say this hotel is one of my favorite properties in Santa Teresa beach and Costa Rica, a truly remarkable place! I will definitely be back in the near future, thanks Pranamar Family!
