Essence of Dreams


Description


Welcome to Essence of Dreams, a palatial Costa Rican property overlooking the Pacific coastline.

Up to 18 guests can relax in the spacious suites and gather for memorable celebrations in the exquisite Great Room or around the beautiful outdoor pool.

Essence of Dreams is located 1,200 feet above the incomparable Playa Hermosa. This beach has earned its title 'Hermosa,' meaning 'beautiful.' With fine sands, turquoise waters, and conditions perfect for surfing and swimming, this is a natural paradise.

The spectacular villa has a prime location overlooking this incredible coastline and a 360-degree view that includes volcanoes, rainforests, and mountains. Every natural wonder that sets Costa Rica above most other destinations is spread like a magical carpet around this exceptionally tasteful property.

On the villa's main level, there is a stunning 40-foot salt mineral infinity pool with a swim-up bar. The pool has a 'beach' area with lovely areas for sunbathing and sitting. The shaded Terrace has a summer kitchen with a barbecue, perfect for alfresco lunches. There's an outdoor TV and bar for guests who like to keep connected with news or sports without losing out on time in the fresh air.

The villa's Great Room matches its name. This room is both a vaulted and elegant room where guests can gather to enjoy the views of the pool and the ocean beyond. There's an 85' Smart TV, stunning photographic prints, and a huge crystal chandelier, just some refinements that will bring luxury and expected modern amenities to a memorable vacation.

Essence of Dreams has a huge American-style kitchen. Your in-house Chef will cater to all your dining needs, but you are very welcome to get involved if you love learning new cooking techniques.

The lavish dining space at Essence of Dreams can comfortably accommodate 20 guests. It is filled with natural light and has a divine view. High-end dining is a feature of each day, starting with an indulgent buffet breakfast in this space. The local ingredients, the unsurpassed Costa Rican coffee, fresh seafood, vegetables, and meat combine to dazzle and tempt. Life at Essence of Dreams has all the qualities of a luxury hotel getaway but with a wonderfully exclusive vibe.

There is a great beverage center in the kitchen stocked daily with water, juices, and soft drinks, ideal for guests to grab a drink throughout the day. Likewise, coffee, tea, or hot chocolate is available all day. If you want a selection of wines, champagne, beers, and cocktails, you can add this request at the pre-booking stage.

As the day draws to a close, the fire urns are lit, casting a magical glow over the infinity pool. Gathering with your loved ones around the pool and listening to the tropical night sounds is a deeply relaxing experience. Bliss!

The villa is a dream of ultra-luxurious furnishings, sleek porcelain tiling, soft fabrics, and eclectic lighting design. Talented local artisans and artists have contributed to the extensive array of unique features, creating a one-of-a-kind destination property.

If you are looking for the ultimate place for a wedding or perhaps a yoga retreat, this exquisite, staffed villa would be ideal. Essence of Dreams is your ultimate getaway to escape and immerse yourself in the natural beauty all around. There's so much to see and experience in Guanacaste and beyond. You will adore each thrilling day.

The seven spacious suites each have a private ensuite bathroom. The bedrooms have been named in honor of world-renowned fine artists. It adds something very special to each space. In addition, six of the suites have a private balcony with ocean views.

Each day in Essence of Dreams is a celebration of life. Whether you are 'Doing' or 'Being,' the pace of life can be adjusted to your rhythm. If you are a family or group of friends, you can explore the tropical green mountains or step into the deep blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. Perhaps you want a night of astronomical pleasure gazing at a star-filled sky. Tap into your inner Zen with a yoga practice or meditation on your private balcony. For something a little more contemporary, run a movie or have a video game tournament on the games’ console.

Essence of Dreams has a wonderfully discreet team of staff that includes a private chef and a masseuse, as well as housekeepers and a butler. Just another facet of the deeply pampering lifestyle that awaits within this serene and private villa.

The villa has over 6,000 square feet of space, intelligently designed to maximize the beauty of its surroundings. The large pool and Terrace are two glorious areas for guests to gather each day or evening. The third-floor Sky Deck and private Sky Sanctuary are perfect locations for a 50-guest wedding or corporate retreat. The Sanctuary bar is the place for late cocktails as you relax on the Sky Deck and admire the majestic views.

Maintaining one's workouts becomes easy at the Sky Gym and Fitness with Precor equipment. Navigating the three-level villa is achieved by stairs or elevators. It couldn't be easier.

Essence of Dreams continues to expand its offering as a destination villa with a soon-to-be-opened cinematic Sky Movie Theater with a 123-inch screen Dolby Atmos sound. The Sky Spa and Massage will deliver high-end private massages – indoor and outdoor.

Essence of Dream takes a luxury Costa Rican vacation to another level.
