Don't miss the opportunity to visit this one-of-a-kind UNESCO World Heritage Site and all the wonders it offers!
During this retreat, you will stay either in a private or a shared room at MonteMar Villas. The three different villas on property share modern lux interiors with ceiling fans, safe boxes, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth stereos. Also, all villas benefit from elegant tall ceilings supported by locally grown and treated bamboo, which bring light and ventilation to the interiors.
Rooms have two twin beds, a queen, or a king size bed. All villas are sound proof, non-smoking, and one floor designed. They have a ceiling fan, a safe box, wireless internet, and Bluetooth wireless sound devices. Each villa is also equipped with a kitchen, social, and dining area. Every villa has a deck to enjoy the view and most rooms have wide sliding doors that connect you with the outside.
All the villas produce their own energy through solar panels installed on the roof. Water is heated with solar heaters. All water is captured by the roofs before going to high technology, non-invasive processing to make sure the water does not lose its wonderful natural characteristics. The objective is to take a shower with rain water, one of the purest waters on earth than has been heated by the sun at the equator.
