About the property

Dramatic Pacific Ocean views surrounded by lush tropical vegetation

Our boutique hotel includes only 5 private villas to ensure the most relaxing environment. The property stretches out over 5 hectares ensuring that nature remains untouched all around. We are located above Uvita, Costa Rica on the mountainside 2000 feet or 600m above Costa Ballena with a direct view of the famous Whale’s Tail and panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. The elevation will ensure a good night’s rest and temperatures in the low 80°’s (27°C) during the day. We’re close to the Ocean but at a much more pleasant temperature and with nice pacific breezes.

Not simply a hotel but an unforgettable experience. Escape your everyday life and find yourself surrounded by primary cloud and rainforest, tropical flowers, toucans, monkeys, parrots, and butterflies. Enjoy your privacy in our modern, comfortable and stylish haciendas with breath taking Pacific Ocean views, dramatic primary rainforest jungle mountainside and cloud forest above. The haciendas have been designed with the heavenly views in mind. Soak in a free standing tub, lay out on the terrace, or cool down in your own hot/cold infinity pool while enjoying the panoramic views all around. Our haciendas are very private yet close to our restaurant and main pool area. Our spa services can be received right in the privacy of your hacienda terrace while you enjoy the heavenly views. We are only minutes away from 13 tropical beaches, dining and entertainment, as well as modern conveniences. If you have adventure in mind you couldn’t have come to a better place, we will help you arrange the most fun adventure activities that fit your personality.

About Jennifer

Jennifer & Konrad left their corporate lives to embark on a lifelong adventure. Plans were made that when the right opportunity came they would take their entrepreneurial skills on the road and travel the world. They became white collar vagabonds. Their travels took them from Ecuador to Croatia to the south of France and many other destinations. When they decided to cut the cord and sell their home in Atlanta they packed up their car and drove towards the Mexican border. They continued for over 4,000 miles through Central America and ended up in Uvita de Osa where over a fateful weekend a decision was made to buy a property because it just felt right.

This property would become Vista Celestial. Vista Celestial is a reflection of their travel experiences including organic mixed drinks, culinary fusions, lounge designs, to the wood for the furniture that was sourced from their friend’s reforestation farm. The travel stories are endless and your hosts would love to exchange experiences with you over a cocktail or two…

Jennifer purchased this villa in 2012

Escape the real world and come visit a region that offers unspoiled nature with a unique character. Costa Ballena is located on the central Pacific coast, 3 hours driving distance from San Jose and 45 minutes south of Quepos/Manuel Antonio. Stretching from Dominical, Uvita, to Ojochal offers small secluded beaches. There are more than 13 tropical beaches to choose from. You may walk a deserted beach without seeing anyone else. The mountains rise steeply from the pacific ocean offering a spectacular scenery. The jungle canopy meets the cloud forest cover above. It is truly special. The famous Whale’s tail in Uvita stretches out over 1km to sea and you can walk it all the way out. Ballena means whale in Spanish, however, it is not just the whale’s tail that gives this region its name, whales frequent the coast and you may enjoy a whale & dolphin watching tour. The whole area is a protected national park with over 5,375 hectares of sea and 115 hectares of land. There are many amazing tours that will showcase this national park. What should you do when you visit the south pacific region of Costa Rica?

Beach Hopping! – South from Dominical to Ojochal you find more than 13 unique beaches with spectacular views of islands, or ocean carves caves that shoot streams of water high into the air.

Dominical – Surfer’s Mecca, and a chill hang out area

Waterfalls – Don’t miss many waterfall gems in the mountainsides. Take a tour or explore yourself and take a dip in one of the many swimming holes.

Food – Ojochal offers unique cuisine influenced by a fusion of French and tropical flavors.

Experience our beautiful deserted beaches. Enjoy the surf, romantic walks on an empty beach, or take one of the many adventure vacation tours that we offer. From whale and dolphin watching, deep sea fishing, dive and snorkeling tours or surfing to ATV tours, horseback riding, canopy zip lining to a swim in a waterfall. The south pacific zone has been ranked as one of the best places for Costa Rica adventure vacations.

Our hotel is 2000 feet up ensuring a very comfortable low 80°’s environment. May t o November we experience the ‘green season’ with daily rains, the rest of the year is much drier. We like the ‘green’ season as it adds to the tropical experience when you watch the afternoon clouds roll in…
