This intimate adults-only inn is the place to be for honeymooning couples with enough money left over after the wedding to pamper themselves, or for stressed-out high achievers in need of some serious relaxation therapy. Rooms, with queen or king beds, are elegant and comfortable, opening out onto a large pool with expansive views to the faraway ocean. The Eros honeymoon suite has a private terrace and hot tub. But the main draw here is the spa, built into the side of a mountain and staffed by a team of professional therapists, offering such sybaritic pleasures as volcanic mud wraps, honey-cucumber-lime facials, papaya body polishes, and relaxing massages. Day packages are available for nonguests. Gourmet breakfast and lunch are included, as is dinner on Saturday. Other evenings, you can take a free shuttle into Tamarindo, a bumpy 14-km (8½-mi)le ride away, to experience the local dining scene. Other perks include free Wi-Fi, airport transportation, laundry service, and live music from 5 to 6 on Saturdays. Early-morning yoga classes and hikes around the steep, 70-acre property keep you active.
