The newest luxury resort in Manuel Antonio is also the only true beach-front hotel in the region. The resort offers 38 rooms, either junior suites or deluxe ocean view rooms, which can be linked to form a generous master suite. All rooms feature terraces and balconies that open to the warm ocean breeze and delight guests with spectacular views. We simply love Arenas del Mar!
The Deluxe Ocean View rooms are ideal for couples on a romantic escape and for families enjoying a high-end Costa Rica vacations. Junior suites are larger, and feature a spacious living room area with double balcony. Small Jacuzzis for two are a nice addition to the romantic experience in the larger rooms. The Deluxe rooms are able to connect with the Junior suites to create a spacious two bedroom–two bathroom master suite, perfect for families.
Three guest room buildings are located beachside, with a lovely swimming pool. Another four buildings are located atop the hill that serves as the main common area, featuring the main lobby and reception area, restaurant, large pool and spa. The resort is designed to provide a relaxing and intimate feel. All gasoline powered vehicles are left in the parking lot, and electric golf carts are provided for exclusive use of hotel guests and staff on hotel grounds.
Conservation and ecology are an integral part of the experience at Arenas del Mar. Designed as a “green” resort, it is at the forefront in the Manuel Antonio region in sustainability, community outreach and environmental preservation. Luxury and pampering are not sacrificed, however. Environmental damage caused by amenities such as air conditioning and hot water are offset by the large areas of the property dedicated to the protection of the low land tropical rainforest, its wildlife and the local ecosystem. Nature thrives, and guests can often observe monkeys, iguanas, sloths and tropical birds.
Arenas del Mar is a highly recommended hotel for those guests wishing to experience luxury while being concerned for the environment. The designers and management team have introduced important conservation policies while maintaining a high level of service and comfort for their guests. The beachfront location set the resort apart from the other luxury options in the region. Arenas del Mar is a fantastic choice in Manuel Antonio hotel for families and couples seeking luxury, great service, isolation and personalized attention while staying at the most visited region in Costa Rica.
