A luxury boutique hotel nestled in the hills of Quepos, bordering the Manuel Antonio National Park on Costa Rica’s lush Pacific coast, has swept the region’s awards again this year.
The Gaia Hotel and Reserve was considered the best boutique hotel in the Mexico-Central America region in this year’s World Travel Awards ceremony, for the 8th time!
In 2015, Gaia was recognized by Condé Naste as the Best Hotel with Spa in Central and South America
On a hill surrounded by jungle, this chic hotel consists of suites in sleek, modern buildings. Located 3 km from Marina Pez Vela, and 5 km from Manuel Antonio National Park, the rooms offering spectacular jungle or ocean views.
Suites feature free Wi-Fi, luxe linens and shared patios. Upgraded suites and villas add amenities such as private terraces or semi-private pools. There’s 24/7 room service, and kids age over 13 are welcome.
Free breakfast is served in a casual international restaurant. There’s also a spa, and an bi-level outdoor pool with panoramic views and a swim-up bar. Other amenities include a gym, and activities like cooking classes and nature tours, according to the hotel’s website.
This year’s World Travel Awards ceremony, its 24th, was held at the Hard Rock Café Hotel on the Maya Riviera of Cancun, Mexico.
“This is a great opportunity for Costa Rica more than for my small hotel, since it allowed us to be visible on the international scene in a space that offers a lot of competition especially from Mexico. It also gave me the opportunity to talk about the importance of creating memories in the hotel industry, and in particular, memories of the well-being of the environment,” said Marchegiani.
