As Costa Rica’s borders open, we look forward to welcoming you to Gaia Hotel & Reserve.
Why consider our hotel and nature reserve for your next holiday? Gaia was naturally designed for privacy and, social distancing. Our TripAdvisor cleanliness rating is 5 out of 5 points.
We are a small boutique 5-star luxury hotel on 15 acres of pristine jungle. The design and layout of our hotel is conducive to natural separation of guests. Privacy has always been one of our ultimate goals. So much so, that we have no long hallways papered with rooms and rooms; to reach your room the most you will pass will be two room and only one room in more than eighty percent of the cases.
Our restaurant has a capacity of 85 guests of which we will only accommodate half of the availability for proper social distancing. Tables are separated in a huge open floor plan. Our rooms, of which we only have 22, are spread out over 3 buildings with 2 pools to accommodate guests and 3 additional wading pools with 5 resting/tanning areas around the pools. Our spa facilities have 8 treatment rooms which are segregated and private.
You can be assured of coming to a country which has had minimal reported hospitalizations with no cases at all in our neck of the woods. A country where medical tourism is at the forefront of why people come to Costa Rica in the first place.
Gaia Hotel and Reserve has always been a private intimate resort and is and has always been ready to accommodate our guests to experience your own personal Paradise. Additional measures
