Surrounded by the most spectacular cloud forest in Costa Rica, conveniently located just 60 Km / 38 mi (one hour) from San Jose Intl. Airport, you'll discover Villa Blanca Cloud Forest Hotel and Spa, surrounded by the Los Angeles Cloud Forest Private Biological Reserve.

The Villa Blanca experience begins with the unique personality of your private accommodations. Each charming "casita" is part of an authentic Costa Rican Farm Village concept overlooking 3,000 acres of dairy pastures and pristine tropical cloud forest.

Villa Blanca Cloud Forest Hotel and Spa includes 35 individual well-appointed and completely renovated casitas that feature five (5) romantic Honeymoon Casitas. On the main hilltop is the Hacienda House, where you can enjoy fresh baked breads and pastries at El Cafe del Bosque or a game chess or billiards in El Mirador de Los Angeles salon, overlooking thousands of acres of pristine cloud forest. Also enjoy the fine country-style dining in the charming restaurant, El Sendero, overlooking the majestic Arenal Volcano, near La Fortuna, just a scenic 70 Km. drive from Villa Blanca.

The beauty of nature and the serenity of this picturesque country farm village now also include indulging yourself with delicious regional food and comfortable cozy accommodations. If you are coming to Costa Rica for relaxation, Villa Blanca is also the right choice.

The hotel spa facilities and the Los Angeles Cloud Forest Private Reserve surrounding the property hosts a similar inventory of flora and fauna found in habitats such as Monteverde, yet with only a fraction of the driving time from San Jose.

Total renovations of the buildings and grounds were begun in May of 2004. Using the skills of over 130 local men and women, the Costa Rican farm village concept was re-created while still minimizing the impact on the environment.

Every window and door structure was replaced or restored. New colonial roofing tiles were manufactured from recycled plastic bags from banana plantations. The former Hacienda guest rooms became El Mirador game room and guest salon.

The power lines and transformers were put underground to create a more natural setting. All electrical and plumbing was upgraded and lighting was replaced with reproductions of candle lamps and oil lanterns.

The 47 rooms were converted into 35 private "Casitas" that were carefully renovated to capture the setting of a Costa Rican farm village at the turn of the century, yet with all the quality and comfort of a first class boutique cloud forest hotel.

After a day of nature/adventure tours, treat yourself to a professional therapeutic body massage. Relax at the hands of our Serenity Spa technicians with natural spa products made in Costa Rica. A massage is a healthy way to relax and ease sore muscles after a day of nature/adventure activities.

We offer therapeutic massages and a full range of other Serenity Spa treatments by appointment.

We believe our authentic dining atmosphere is in tune with a Costa Rican menu of traditional family recipes handed down from previous generations along with the influence of indigenous Mayan Indians who inhabited Central America.

At 1200 meters above sea level, the cool tropical cloud forest mist is ideal for delicious homemade soups and fresh garden salads, including local hearts of palm and avocado with farm dairy cheeses and tangy salad dressings spiced with tropical herbs once traded with the Spaniards.

A variety of main courses, including fresh Sea Bass and shrimp, with handmade corn tortillas and delicious garden vegetables, are part of the menu designed by our chef.

The Mariana Wedding Chapel was the 50th anniversary-wedding gift from former Pres. Rodrigo Carazo to First Lady Estrella Carazo. Its unique hand painted ceramic ceiling depicts the history of the Virgin Mary when first introduced into Latin America by Christian missionaries.

The chapel is open daily to our hotel guests (8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.), and available for weddings and other special events.

See the ecosystem from a bird's eye view within the treetops and passing clouds of this canopy cloud forest adventure located next to the hotel. You'll observe the exuberant flora and fauna while enjoying the canopy that hosts a variety of bird species in this unique Ecosystem.

Experience the ultimate canopy adventure with seven (7) platforms and zip-lines from 30 to 260 meters in length.
