Nosara is a prime destination for health, wellness and surfing and the Nalu Hotel is a culmination of all of those. Rather than traditional rooms, the hotel is made up of a series of individual villas — each with either two or three bedrooms, spa bathrooms, open living area with kitchen, outdoor showers, and a private saltwater pool. The property is surrounded by lush gardens, providing privacy for guests as well as encounters with local howler monkeys and iguanas. An open-air fitness studio offers a variety of classes ranging from kick boxing to yoga, while the beach is just a short walk a way to enjoy the Costa Rican surf or a dip in the ocean.
