Manuel Antonio’s quintessential honeymoon hotel, Makanda, has been enjoyed by many couples on a romantic escape or during their Costa Rica honeymoon vacation. Masterfully designed and decorated, the studios and villas at this hotel blend into the heavily forested hillside, providing some of the most amazing views in the country.
Makanda operates with couples in mind. It is an adults-only property featuring romantic services such as daily breakfast served in the guest room, complete privacy, and comfortable king beds with nettings. The heart of the social section of the resort is the pool, an integral part of the restaurant, featuring a swim-up bar and sun-tanning area.
The eight studios and four villas in Makanda have a fresh, vibrant contemporary and colorful interior design, which offers a luxurious feel. Guest rooms are spacious and designed to maximize their natural lighting. Not all rooms are air conditioned but the design and construction allow for natural ventilation aided by ceiling fans. Most rooms feature romantic terraces with hammocks that are inviting to long, relaxing afternoons gazing at the view and enjoying the beautiful Pacific sunsets.
Makanda by the Sea is the ideal honeymoon in Costa Rica hotel in Manuel Antonio for couples seeking a small property that is professionally managed yet centered on individualized attention. The hotel is a perfect match for couples who do not require the full service available in larger resorts. The hotel emphasizes close interactions with its guests, and does not offer some popular services such as a spa, gym, yoga lessons or night entertainment. Guests requiring those services have the option of visiting one of the day spas available in town.
One of Makanda’s most popular features is its direct trail to the beach. As with most hotels in Manuel Antonio, Makanda is perched on a hillside. But Makanda’s advantage is that the path to the beach is inside the property and the hike is not as steep as in other properties. This boutique and exclusive hotel is perfect for any Costa Rica honeymoon package. Plan your trip with our travel experts and include Makanda in your Costa Rica vacation package.
