Unique Location. Secluded, Intimate Experience. Off the Beaten Path.



Rate per night from $199

Along the foothills of the Tenorio Volcano in Costa Rica’s northern highlands, the Rio Celeste Hideaway is the ideal choice for those looking for a secluded intimate boutique experience in Costa Rica that’s off the beaten tourist path. Rio Celeste itself is one of Costa Rica’s most beautiful natural wonders where volcanic chemical reactions cause the waters to glow a vibrant sky-blue color (talk about a vacation photo op!).

Rio Celeste Hideaway sits on over 150 acres of tropical forest, scenic waterfalls, and nature trails to explore. The hotel is comprised of 26 private casitas (bungalows), each elegantly designed with tropical colors and Balinese hardwood furnishings. All rooms have A/C, cable TV, hairdryer, safe, minibar, coffeemaker, indoor/outdoor shower, and intimate Jacuzzi. Hotel amenities include complimentary WiFi in the lobby and restaurant. Guests can also enjoy the hotel’s large swimming pool and small surrounding Jacuzzis.

Their full-service restaurant, Kantala Restaurant, serves a la carte breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Menu offerings include a modest variety of Costa Rican dishes with international influences. The Cantina Delirio Bar & Lounge is a perfectly relaxing area to enjoy aperitifs or after-dinner drinks. Guests can swim right up to the Luna Azul pool bar for fresh tropical cocktails and lighter lunch fare. The kitchen staff is able to accommodate special dietary restrictions and food allergies with advanced notice.

Other on-site offerings include a spa and hiking trails. One trail leads to a little rancho with towels for those who wish to swim in the milky-blue waters. A la carte breakfast is included in the nightly rate.
