Built with materials from Indonesia and boasting views of the ocean in two directions, Casa Alang Alang is the perfect marriage of relaxed Balinese style and unforgettable Costa Rican scenery. Built atop a hill near the Tamarindo estuary, the property has views along Playa Grande—including vistas of the sunset over the Pacific—and a location a short walk from the beach and town. Seven suite-style bedrooms, including one in a guest house, make the expansive villa feel like your own private beach resort.
At Casa Alang Alang, wake up each day and enjoy a breakfast that’s already been prepared before stepping outside and deciding which of the two pools will be your first swim of the day. (You also have the choice of a soak in the hot tub.) Sunbathe in the lounge chairs on the deck, nap in the hammock, exercise in the fitness room or book a treatment on the massage table, and send the kids to play on the trampoline or skate on the half-pipe. Rinse off in the outdoor shower before preparing dinner on the barbecue and sitting down to eat at the al-fresco dining area. Though it feels secluded, the villa is fully connected with Apple TV and Wi-Fi.
