Close to the beach and immersed in the jungle, Tiki Villas Rainforest Lodge is the result of the love for the Costa Rican rainforest. We are an adults-only hotel (ages 16 and up) located in Uvita on the southern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. It’s the ideal location to start exploring a unique tropical paradise. There are two nature reserve parks close by, Baru Reserve and Marino Ballena National Park, as well as a further three – Manuel Antonio National Park, Corcovado National Park and Caño Island Biological Reserve, only an hour and a half away.
The objective for our hotel was to build a small boutique eco-lodge committed to the environment and the local community. The aspiration: provide the highest standards of service and amenities to our guests. The fusion of Bali Modern architectural design with authentic Costa Rican style created an exclusive escape from the modern world, designed in collaboration with a leading Costa Rican architect to minimize environmental impact and to seamlessly integrate our presence with the pristine rainforest. The extensive use of natural materials allow our guests to feel part of the nature contained within our private rainforest reserve. Built by hand over three years, without the use of heavy machinery, we protected the natural topography by elevating the villas on columns, which also enhances the views of the Pacific Ocean. All the furniture, doors, etc. were built by local artisans out of wood that had been recycled or came from sustainable farms. Particular care was taken with drainage and lighting.
