Florblanca Review

Named for the white flowers of the frangipani trees growing between the restaurant and the beach, this tasteful, friendly resort is dedicated to relaxation and rejuvenation. The luxurious villas are scattered through the forest mere steps from the surf, and each wonderfully decorated and spacious villa gives off an Asian feel, especially in the outdoor Balinese-inspired bathrooms with rain showers and sunken tubs. Airy living rooms open onto porches with large hammocks. Most villas have one air-conditioned bedroom with a king-size bed; two-bedroom villas have a second room with twin beds. Only four villas have sea views through the trees, so request one of these when you book. Florblanca's Surf House, slightly more rustic but a little cheaper, has its own secluded beach and the best ocean views. Yoga classes ($12) are given in a studio that faces the ocean, and there is a full range of spa services at the hotel's new Bamboo Spa. Along with luxury and service, the hotel pays attention to conservation, earning four leaves in the national sustainability program. The only TV is in a comfortable lounge.
