Gaia Hotel & Reserve

Km. 2.7, Carretera Quepos-Manuel Antonio
Manuel Antonio , Costa Rica

Avid environmentalists, this small, five-star luxury boutique hotel on the central Pacific coast won the award for Leading Green Hotel for Central America by the World Travel Awards for its efforts in conservation. Originally the Jardin Gaia, it was once a center for native orchid conservation and endangered wildlife rehabilitation. Today, the Gaia Hotel operates the preserve while offering suites, studios, and villas for a small number of guests — with an on-site restaurant, spa, gym, and pool to boot. All-inclusive packages are available that focus on wellness, adventure, relaxation, spa treatments, and cuisine.
