Cascadas Farallas - Waterfall Villas

Accommodations are luxurious in the Boutique Balinese tropical style - the Waterfall Villas offers A Healing Journey in the exotic jungle of Costa Rica where the energy of the Waterfalls will resonate into your body, mind and soul with healing, detox, and rejuvenation. 

The Waterfall Villas are on top of the waterfalls - with the stream of water that feeds the main waterfall out in front of your balcony!!! The bottom of the falls is a 1 minute walk along the stream down a trail from the villas where 4 wooden decks provide wonderful views of the Falls at different levels! There is no place quite like this on earth!  

The unique architecture of the Waterfall Villas is Contemporary Tropical Bali Style - modeled after a Balinese family compound and temple structures suited for Tropical Living. When the Spanish arrived in Costa Rica, a few hundred years ago, they clearly did not understand a tropical environment nor green architecture design - their buildings fit the Mediterranean climate, and a tendency to close off views to the nature around them. The Waterfall Villas lets the nature in while in total comfort with large glass windows and glass doors with screens! 

Heaven on earth for Vegetarians, Vegans and raw foodists can enjoy gourmet organic foods. To cleanse and revitalize - our detox programs will transform your energy and revitalize you!

Dragonfly Suite

Located just 3 miles from the Dominical Beach in the exotic tropical region of Costa Rica in the lush Baru rainforest of our own private wildlife reserve - in a Secluded Private Rainforest Paradise.
