Shana Hotel in Manuel Antonio: A Haven of Relaxation & Nature
The right ambiance is necessary to completely unwind and leave your worries behind. Shana’s relaxed, casual atmosphere makes this possible. Here, the surrounding views sit front and center. Sit back and admire both the forest and the ocean from the balcony in the room.
Another way to commune with nature is to take a stroll down to the coast. This is the opportunity to enjoy one of the hotel’s best perks: private beach access.
Descend from the top of the hill down a nature trail shaded by jungle trees and tropical flowers. The path is full of opportunities to admire the local wildlife. Keep an eye out for the toucans, sloths, and spider monkeys that move among the trees.
After the walk down the slope, the forest opens to Biesanz beach. This beach has soft waves and dark, volcanic rocks dotted along the coast. Explore the area, splash in the water, or sunbathe in the sand for a soothing experience.
Keeping up with the overall ambiance, rooms are also designed to be unobtrusive spaces where you can loosen up without excessive clutter in the way. These modernized accommodations are comfortable and spacious, offering views of the surrounding vegetation and ocean.
Top-Notch Facilities & International Dining
The rest of the hotel has a laid-back attitude that allows you to enjoy the vacation at your own pace.
The pool is the place where most guests want to hang out during their stay, as it offers a refreshing lounging area with a deck to sit and sunbathe. The forest expands beyond the pool’s edge making for a great view during the day and a harmony of natural sounds at night.
The poolside bar is conveniently located so you can keep a supply of your favorite cocktail from the menu at hand. Make sure to not miss out on their classic margaritas while watching the sun setting on the horizon.
Elements Spa is also available for massages and body treatments. With internationally certified technicians and the best products, this is the place to truly forget your worries. Enjoy the hand-picked essential oils and the local ingredients used in every treatment. Let these aromas and expert hands soothe any sore in your muscles.
The on-site Bella Vista Restaurant offers Mediterranean dishes as well as a selection of other cuisine types to make for a varied dining experience. Try out the veggie pizza and the seafood pasta to get some of their best flavors.
The fact Quepos town is so close by means there are many chances to go out and explore. The iconic Manuel Antonio National Park is readily available for you to discover the rich biodiversity of the area.
Quepos also has a state-of-the-art marina in case you want to go sportfishing, and nearby are adventure tours (ATVing, horseback riding, zip lining, etc) as well as plenty of restaurants, shops, and nightlife in case you want to experience some of Costa Rica’s local culture.
