Tiki Villas Rainforest Lodge and Spa has been created as a labor of love by the developers who worked tirelessly to create a hotel that respected the power and beauty of the natural surroundings which define the experience in the area. Located just north of the rapidly growing eco tourism destination of Uvita, the Tiki Villas Rainforest Lodge is much more than just a successful hotel operation; it is a legacy and lifestyle opportunity unlike any other in the southern zone.
Located on 13 pristine acres, the property offers spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and lush tropical rainforest, but is also just 400 meters off the main coastal highway. In an area whose access is often defined by extensive off road driving, the majestic setting of this hotel and the accessibility make for an incredibly unique commercial opportunity.
There are a total of 9 villas that have been conscientiously built to respect the natural surroundings, with each structure being designed on pilings to allow the land to continue its natural flow and feel. Each villa offers a king-size bed and a queen and can sleep up to 4 people comfortably. Every room has a full kitchenette area, a luxurious and spacious bath, along with a private terrace perfect for a morning coffee or glass of wine each night.
The stunning infinity edge pool and Las Velas restaurant are at the heart of the property. This open air space is fused together and allows guests to enjoy the serenity of the rainforest and views, with excellent service from the Costa Rican fusion bar and menu. At night, as the sun sets and the tiki torches lighting creates a new ambiance, a relaxed jungle dining environment is already popular with guests and has a lot of room for continued growth both with hotel guests and the growing community of Uvita.
All the construction work has been done by hand with local teams and craftsmen, which is part of the hotel’s holistic view of true sustainability. The hotel has always been a profitable venture for the owners, but they have made investments since the pandemic, and the hotel’s profitability is skyrocketing for 2023. With 13 acres of property, there is ample room for expansion should a new investor want to add more rooms without affecting the privacy and general feel, and ecological commitment of the operation.
To maximize profitability, the entire operation is managed by a small and efficient team of 11 employees, not including the manager. The hotel also has a 5 star average on Trip Advisor with over 600 reviews, which speaks to the quality of the setting and experience. Finding an ocean-view hotel in the Southern Zone of Costa Rica that provides this combination of location, views, acreage, and PROFITABILITY anywhere near this price point will be impossible.
