Flexible occupancy bungalow
While the feel of each bungalow is distinct, all of them offer the same features and amenities. The 36m2 (400sq ft.) consist of a cozy but very comfortable bedroom + bathroom and an elevated terrace. The rooms have two twin beds on industrial rollers. This design allows them to be brought together so as to form a king-sized bed. One of these beds also has a trundle underneath. The bungalows can accommodate couples, solo travelers, and parents with one child.
Continuing with the idea of a flexible space, opposite from the beds there is a multiuse element which serves as a mini bar / coffee station, a desk area, a multimedia area (further described, below), and a closet area.
The mentioned terrace was designed to be an ideal place for sitting back, reading a book, enjoying a fresh drink, or simply admiring the landscape from comfy hammock chair / swing seat. The terrace is integrated with the entry, so you are allured into getting familiar with said, delightful spot…from the get-go.
For those who simply can’t leave technology out of the equation (even in a place like this!), rooms are equipped with high-speed wireless Internet, Cable TV, and a high-efficiency air conditioning system.
We have designed a very functional bathroom; while there is no wasted space, it is quite comfortable. Materials and designs have been crafted specifically for this project. The counter is a combo of polished concrete with inlaid recycled glass bottles and stone. The bathrooms are fitted with premium plumbing as part of our effort to meet the highest sanitary standards and maintain optimal functionality. The main mirror is lit from its sides and also by hanging fixtures, assuring ideal lighting for makeup application, shaving…or simple self-admiration! Floor to ceiling sandblasted windows insure optimal privacy and great natural illumination, at the same time. Showers are finished with special ceramic tile and lots of glass; this forges a sense of pleasant openness.
By late 2017, we will inaugurate four new and spectacular canyon-front villas and six “bigger bungalows”, which will be ideal for couples desiring more space and more privacy. These units will also be suitable for families of four.

Rooms for the handicapped
The project has two bungalows that meet the highest standards for use by the physically disabled. These units fulfill the requirements set forth by Costa Rican law 7600 (equal opportunities for people with disabilities) and they also meet US hospitality standards. The rooms do not feel very different than the rest. There are metal bars that are installed adjacent to the toilet and inside the shower. Also the toilet, the sink, and certain other elements have been installed at the optimal height to be accessed by a person in a wheelchair.
Doorways have a minimum opening of 1m (3.3ft) and circulation areas allow for a 1.5m (5ft) minimum radius. Access to the elevated bungalows is carried out via an elevated pathway with a very light gradient, insuring safe ascents and descents.
Lighting is designed to be perceived optimally in every corner of the room, as it is in the outdoor, circulation area, among the bungalows. Emergency lighting has also been elaborated under international standards.
