Iluminar Beachfront Suites

Steps from the sand, our 7 luxurious King Suites offer privacy, quietude and creature comforts in Nosara’s desireable North End. Just a block away from an eclectic array of shops, restaurants & activities yet surrounded by serenity of our gardens and the ever-present lure of Mother Ocean.

Direct Beach Access = No Shoes Required!

Step barefoot outside your beachfront suite onto the soft sand trail. Wander through the 200M Beach Refuge for awe-inspiring sunsets, year round warm water waves or a full moon stroll.

Off The Beaten Path

Nosara is known as an “Off The Beaten Path Resort Town without the Resorts in one of the world’s foremost Blue Zones.” People are happier here, healthier and they live longer. We invite you to come and discover the true meaning of “Pura Vida,” the “Pure Life.”

Introducing the Iluminar Surf House.

Now booking for 2024! 

Designed with both families and our community of surfers, yogi’s & seekers in mind, the transformation of our beloved Rancho Luz is nearly complete. This 2 bedroom/2 bath home sleeps 6 and offers a “mini version” of the original rancho on the second floor, alongside an abundance of open space reserved for sunsets & starry nights. Throughout the remodel, we were able to repurpose the teak beams of her magnificent cone and incorporate them throughout the build. The integrity of her sacred, geometrical space remains and is bursting with joy as she steps into her renewal. Families and intimate groups welcome!


Enjoy daily breakfast on us! We have partnered with our neighbors
at Naked Foods Cafe to bring you Nosara’s original plant-based, organic cuisine.

The “tipico” Costa Rican breakfast includes rice, beans, eggs
or avocado, plantains, salad, fruit and coffee.

Walking Distance

“We love this place so much. Stayed here on our first trip to Costa Rica 4 years ago, and again this year! Walking distance (less than 5min) to all restaurants, beach access, wonderful staff, beautiful rooms, it’s the whole package! There’s no concierge desk, so more of an airb&b style stay. We loved that aspect of it because it feels small and local. Highly highly recommend!” Sadie Rayne

Beachfront Air Suite

“What a gem of a place! Above my expectations, excellent location right near the town centre and also a short private path directly to the beach. Our two-tiered balcony was incredible, facing the private garden below. The room was large, air conditioned, very nicely decorated and so clean! Would highly recommend this place to anyone staying in Nosara!” Melissa MacWilliams

Amazing Location

“Amazing location and amazing service. Staff is nice and respond quickly. this small hotel is perfect for intimacy and close to everything you would need during your stay. I strongly recommend this hotel for couple or small family:-)” Julie Rainville

A Life Changing Experience

“This place was simply awesome! Perfect location short walking distance to all the shops and restaurants, but tucked into a side street with little traffic. We loved having the private path to walk to the beach it made it feel like an isolated jungle! The rooms were super clean and nice and the staff was incredibly helpful!” Jacob Mendelson


“I stayed at iluminar en January 2022 and I love the place because is a small boutique place with beautiful rooms and bathrooms. The decoration is amazing, it’s a calm place and it’s in the first line of the jungle pad. It’s really close to some restaurants. I stayed at one of the first flor rooms and it was really nice.” Jennifer Leibovici

Earth Suite at Illuminar

“My wife and i stayed here for 2 weeks. Ground floor room with king bed. Romantic. Simple. Private, secluded, quiet and steps to the beach. Even a private kitchenette. Like a studio apartment in a small beachy condo building. Rancho outback, fire pit, WiFi in rooms, lovely staff, beautiful flowers and artwork.” Ben Curtis
