Starting From $2290 Per Night
Nestled high atop the 75-acre Achiote Private Reserve, Villa Mayana welcomes its guests with fabulous views of the Pacific Ocean and the verdant mountains hugging the coast of Costa Rica's celebrated southern zone.
Directly across from Hermosa Beach and a short ride to the famous "Whale's Tail" reef in Ballena National Park, guests enjoy both the privacy of the estate and the many outdoor activities available in one of the most biodiversity-rich areas of the world.
The constant melodies of tropical songbirds, the rolling surf and gentle breezes mingle through the rainforest canopy and weave a subtle soundtrack befitting this extraordinary setting. Mayana's visual vantage point and simplicity of design as delivered by architecht Enrique Barascout render it unrivalled anywhere in the country as a residential hideaway of absolute privacy and comfort.
The main entrance features a covered walkway floating over a 2,000 square foot reflecting pool of black volcanic candistone. Lined with columns of white palimanan sandstone, the walkways lead you to the East and West bedroom suites which flank the great room, the villa's central focal point.
The name Mayana was derived from the ancient Mesoamerican civilization and the Sanskrit word "maya", meaning "reflection". Utilizing gray water, solar panels to heat water, and natural sustainable materials such as bamboo, Mayana's creators made every effort to fashion a home that reflects harmoniously with its environment.
Construction followed a deliberate theme of rustic simplicity through the thoughtful selection of natural materials such as sandstone, almendro timber columns, bamboo and Cristobal wooden doors and flooring. The result is a blend of casual elegance and comfortable luxury.
The 30-foot high thatched cathedral ceiling of the central living area allows unimpeded views of the expansive surroundings and horizon. Mayana's construction fits perfectly into its majestic setting as a mountain/beach retreat of incomparable beauty and scale.
The liberating 270-degree vista provides fantastic views of the sunset, stars and exotic local flora and fauna, including toucans, hawks, coatis and howler monkeys. A short drive along the coast to Domenical, Uvita and Ojachal provides easy access to restaurants, shops and local entertainment.
Mayana is beautifully furnished, fully equipped and offers concierge services on site. Each of the four master suites features large private terraces with stunning views of the ocean and jungle, indoor and outdoor garden showers, air conditioning and large walk in closets.
Mayana offers casual, comfortable living areas, both fully air-conditioned and open to the natural surroundings. Incorporating the connecting salas, one located in each wing between bedrooms, can be utilized to accommodate 16 guests.
Villa amenities include open-air dining and living pavilions and a 3,000 square foot free form, infinity-edge swimming pool with natural hand-cut Javanese stone tiles, bordered by broad terraces leading to secluded lounging areas.
A natural fire pit is sited below the pool and hidden from the main residence specifically for enjoyment of spectacular tropical sunsets and conversations continuing through evenings spent under mesmerizing skies, far removed from obscuring city lights.
The upper terrace features an open kitchen and adjoining family room with a large-screen TV, both of which can be enclosed by sliding glass window-walls. From the open-air dining room and adjoining living pavilion enjoy uninterrupted vistas of the ocean, sunset and forested hills.
Mayana's kitchen is fully equipped and stocked in advance as requested by guests. Guests can request complete privacy or opt for a full complement of services. If desired, meals featuring local and international cuisine can be prepared and staffed to meet your specific requirements.
Framed by twin, gently curving marble staircases, the central lower level features a second kitchen and both open and covered lounging areas perfectly suited for games, barbeques, ping pong, massages, and informal meals.
Mayana's private setting, its extraordinary resources and breathtaking panorama make it a perfect venue for vacations with family and friends, intimate weddings or special gatherings and events. Special arrangements to suit your exclusive needs may be provided upon request.
