The Tulemar Resort, formerly named Buena Vista Villas, combines the convenience of a vacation rental with the service of a luxury hotel. Set on a jungle-covered hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the 33-acre Tulemar property slopes from the main hilltop road in Manuel Antonio all the way down to the resort's exclusive beach area. Bungalows, Villas, and Casas are found throughout the property, but most are up on the hillside overlooking the beautiful jungle and coastline. Anybody seeking a rainforest and beach experience in a luxury vacation rental is sure to appreciate this hotel. Resort amenities include several swimming pools and a Jacuzzi, tropical gardens and trails, restaurant, beach access, and WiFi in some common areas.
Manuel Antonio is the ideal setting for a beach and nature vacation. Rainforest covered hills roll down to the golden sands of the beach. Volcanic rock outcroppings frame it all in. The national park is home to loads of exotic and rare animals, but wildlife is just about everywhere in Manuel Antonio.
Most visitors to The Tulemar Resort and Manuel Antonio come for a mix of beach time and activities. Adventurers will be thrilled with tour selections including canopy ziplining through the forest treetops, rafting the raging Rio Savegre, rappelling down waterfalls in the jungle, or taking surf lessons on Playa Espadilla. Take a riverboat ride or go kayaking at the Damas Island Estuary to see local flora and fauna. Or go on a guided hike at Manuel Antonio National Park for an up close and personal experience with a variety of birds, reptiles, monkeys, and sloths.
Time at the resort can be magical. The exclusive beach area provides a wonderful way to spend the afternoon after a morning of exploring. Those staying in the villas can also just relax at the mountainside swimming pool and lounge area. The Rancho Bar serves a variety of tropical drinks and cocktails. The TuleCafe Restaurant offers a delightful selection of International cuisine including pizza, steak, and seafood.
The Tulemar Resort also offers in-unit spa services including wellness, deep tissue, hot stone, or couples massages. Manicures and pedicures, mini treatments, facials, scrubs, and wraps are all popular services as well.
All units are all surrounded by rainforest and tropical gardens. Walking paths allow you to explore these areas and discover the abundant wildlife. The octagonal Tulemar Bungalows are not treehouses but almost feel like they are. Built on the hillside, the front of the units look out over the trees below. The Villas come in one, two, or three bedroom units, all of which are on the hillside overlooking the rainforest. Some units have ocean views. Please refer to the Amenities Section for a complete list of what is included with each unit type.
