Alta Las Palomas , Costa Rica

Alta Las Palomas, Costa Rica, basks in the high life, literally.

Clinging to the hills of Alto de las Palomas in the western part of San Jose (between the cities of Escazu and Santa Ana), Hotel Alta presides above Costa Rica’s central valley overlooking the sprawling mountains and volcanoes beyond.

Upscale and sophisticated, Alta’s terracotta roofs and tall ceilings lend it a timeless European village charm, while La Luz Restaurant and Bar provides a relaxed setting for soaking up the views. The hotel is equally suited for honeymoons, romantic getaways, business meetings and quiet reflection after your Costa Rican adventures. The bustle of city life below remains reassuringly in reach.

Private balconies lead you to an exotic garden scene, or if staying in the Master Suite, the forest-covered mountains and volcanoes beyond Valle del Sol (with a glimpse of the Pacific if you’re lucky).

Local organic farmers supply the ingredients for La Luz Restaurant and Bar whose menus feature international, local and Mediterranean flavors. it’s quickly gaining recognition as a major player in the San José dining scene.
