Life imitates art in this Costa Rican hillside hideaway
Both natural and architectural beauty, the Alta (as it’s affectionately known) is a product of its location. Terracotta roofs, Venetian burnished plaster walls, high ceilings and a curated travel collection of stone forged iron and wooden pieces emulate the charm of a European village. Meanwhile inside, pendant lamps, Italian leather chairs and handcrafted furnishings add a touch of opulence. And the black-and-white photographs on the wall are snapshots of Costa Rica in the 1920s, revealing a glimpse into the past. Today, the elegant interior of the Alta has been designed with tranquillity in mind, with earthy reds and sandstone greys a perfect counterbalance to this boutique hotel’s surroundings.

Outside, the Alta really comes into its own. Spend the day soaking up the sun (and the scenery) at the pool, or take tapas out on the terrace under the shade of the ancient Guanacaste tree – one of the oldest and largest in Costa Rica. In the evening, the best place to be is on your private balcony as the sun sets over the suitably named Vale del Sole.
Enjoy your stay!
