The Harmony sits a stone’s throw from Playa Guiones in the sleepy Pacific coast surf town of Nosara. Its 24 rooms are stylishly spare, with vaulted wood ceilings and flowing white fabrics. The environmentally sound property includes a yoga studio and juice bar, recycling bins in each room, and a pool kept clean with salt instead of chlorine. After a day of surfing, guests can relax at the hotel’s Healing Centre of Radiant Awakening spa with treatments such as the Banana Bliss moisturizing body mask and the Papaya Delight exfoliation; early-morning yoga classes are held on the beach daily.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
