Fodor’s (www.fodors.com): “Surf's up…scale, that is. Hotel Villa Taype, a frayed old surfer's haunt, has been reborn as (The Harmony) - an ultracool, ultrasophisticated retreat…The huge garden and gorgeous pool are oases of soft sage-and-cream-colored tranquility. Every spacious room, villa, and bungalow has a king-size bed dressed in all-white linen. Quiet, new air-conditioning and ceiling fans, updated bathrooms, outdoor decks with hot showers, a juice bar, and a retro '60s lounge bar with basket chairs all add to the harmonious vibe here…The best surf breaks are just 200 meters down a shaded path to the beach.”

AndreaHarner.com: “Imagine walking on a little path through tropical plants while catching glimpses of fluorescent colored crabs and birds, on your way to the dining area by the pool, and eating a delicious breakfast with as much fresh fruit as your heart desires. Then you're surfing, swimming and playing in a beach so warm, soft and beautifully blue you might think you're in your bathtub but then you realize it's a lot better than that…Environmentalists will rightfully delight in the hotel's commitment to sustainable living, mellow surfers will discover their scene here and creative folks will rejoice in the perfect opportunity to unwind, have fun and recharge.”

Insiya Rasiwala for LuxuryLatinAmerica.com: “You cannot go wrong with anything on Harmony's Spa menu, especially since ingredients such as the fresh papaya, avocado and bananas utilized in the whole body skin–fitness treatments are grown right on the hotel property and laced with essential oils...”

Located on Guiones Beach in Nosara, the Harmony is a good place for families or couples looking to get away from it all. Rooms and bungalows are breezy and comfortable, decorated in an understatedly elegant style. Cool off and catch up with your emails by the pool (wifi available) or visit the spa (treatments from $75-$90). The beach is just a down the sandy trail behind the hotel, where surf lessons for the whole family can be arranged (as well as other activities). Breakfasts are included – all the tropical fruit you can eat – and meals are an appetizing selection of healthy and mostly organic ingredients, reflecting the hotel’s commitment to sustainable practices.

Nestled into the sleepy town of Nosara, Costa Rica, 40 miles from the nearest paved road, high standards of sustainable living meet the creature comforts of low key beach life at the Harmony Hotel. The simplicity of earth tones and crisp whites creates rooms that are rooted in nature and beach life at the Harmony. All 24 accommodations reside on a path that meanders through a tropical garden overflowing with native vegetation. The path ends nearby at the warm, inviting Pacific Ocean. Amenities include: daily maid service, king-sized bed, refrigerator, A/C, ceiling fans, safe deposit box, coffee maker and WiFi access.

The open-air restaurant at the Harmony seats 40 guests in a stylish but casual atmosphere that draws upon 70's surf culture, Brazilian Modernism, and old school tropical resorts. The kitchen cooks up local organic seafood, fruits, and vegetables. This means a menu of options flavored by the exotic likes of wild ginger, taro, banana, plantains, mango, coconut and of course, black beans and rice. In addition to the main restaurant at the Harmony, La Cafeteria provides vegetarian tapas, fresh squeezed juices and herbal teas. Like the restaurant, they use organic ingredients whenever possible.

At the Harmony guests can enjoy the rare luxury of knowing that the beauty they see goes further than grass deep. The very landscape is designed to thrive on limited natural resources and organic gardening practices, and the plant positioning creates an inviting habitat for different animal species. In this way, the Harmony strikes a chord that is beautiful in its natural imperfections and satisfyingly real.

There's a rich, beautiful world to discover right outside the Harmony's doorstep. Some activities nearby include: sea kayaking, beach trips, jungle river tours, paddling, kayak camping, ATV tours, backpacking, canopy tours, volcano expeditions, sport fishing, birding and horseback riding.
