Welcome to The Hive, a luxury 6-bedroom villa located on Peninsula Papagayo in Costa Rica.

The Hive is nestled along the shores of the Pacific Ocean, ensconced within the secluded haven of Peninsula Papagayo on Costa Rica's northern Pacific coast. A haven for those seeking adventure and exploration, it is conveniently accessible with international flights arriving at Guanacaste Airport (LIR), just a swift 45-minute drive away.

Floating amidst the ethereal expanse where the sea meets the sky, the Hive is a distinctive private residence, setting itself apart from the conventional villas dotting the region. Alluring and captivating, it serves as a communal space where groups of up to 16 friends, couples, and multi-generational families converge to rekindle bonds and immerse themselves in the marvels of Costa Rica.

The ambiance of the Hive exudes an unexpected yet deliberate sense of weightlessness and fluidity. Beds seemingly levitate above the ground, while vistas from each bedroom seamlessly merge the indoor sanctum with the external panorama of jungle, ocean, and beyond. Describing the sensation experienced at the Hive is a challenge; suffice it to say, the feeling of becoming one with a place has never felt more harmonious, more in tune with the present moment.

Each of the Hive's six en suite bedrooms boasts a unique design, catering to individual preferences. Guests are encouraged to explore and select the bedroom that resonates with their soul. Awaking each morning, one is greeted by the unveiling of a new spectacle orchestrated by the ever-changing canvas of sea, sky, and sun.

Three bedrooms offer an outdoor terraza, providing a serene perch above the jungle canopy—a perfect spot to unwind before delving into a book or succumbing to an impromptu siesta. The luxurious bathrooms offer an indulgent bathing experience. At the same time, the bedroom sitting areas cocoon guests in tranquility, offering a space for contemplation or a moment of quietude amidst the breathtaking vistas.

Dining at the Hive transcends mere sustenance; it is an epicurean adventure guided by our dedicated chef, who curates a culinary journey highlighting the freshest seafood and produce Costa Rica has to offer. Whether relishing in traditional Costa Rican and Central American fare or indulging in bespoke culinary desires, our chef caters to every palate with finesse and flair.

Indoor dining, nestled between the vibrant hues of a state-of-the-art show kitchen and the infinity pool overlooking the ocean, comfortably seats eight, while the outdoor terrace provides a picturesque setting for leisurely meals amidst loved ones and the awe-inspiring backdrop of nature.

The Hive was conceived as a sanctuary where guests can immerse themselves in luxury without ever having to leave. Cantilevered over the verdant jungle below, an infinity pool invites effortless relaxation, allowing guests to float serenely while gazing at the ever-shifting tapestry of clouds above. The expansive deck, adorned with umbrellas and lounge chairs, offers respite from the midday sun, inviting guests to unwind comfortably.

More than a mere retreat, the Hive is a convergence point for design enthusiasts, drawing inspiration from over ten countries to craft a seamless tapestry of aesthetic unity. Each element harmonizes to create a space where individual components fade into the background, giving rise to a holistic design ethos that captivates and enchants at every turn.

Beyond leisurely pursuits, the Hive caters to the diverse interests of its guests, offering a range of activities to suit every inclination. Fitness enthusiasts will find solace in our well-appointed gym, ensuring that wellness remains a priority even amidst vacation indulgence.

Our certified massage therapist awaits to soothe weary bodies while the Hammam beckons with its therapeutic steam and aromatic oils, offering a haven for cleansing and relaxation.

For those craving authentic cultural experiences, the Hive provides access to the vibrant tapestry of Costa Rica's indigenous traditions. From pottery sessions with local artisans to learning the art of handmade tortillas from seasoned abuelas, guests are immersed in the region's rich heritage.
