living in harmony

I cannot help but have a smile on my face when I think about my experiences at the Harmony Hotel in Nosara, I spent my "engagement" week there two years ago and have already been back for a second honeymoon. The resort is inspired by 70's glamour tying that old resort feel with all of the modern amenities you want from a resort minus the ones you don't. 

After a long and bumpy ride I arrived late at night to a place that can only be imagined in my dreams. Simple yet glamorous decor with a ginger tea waiting for me at check in. The next morning I awoke and made my way to the restaurant for breakfast I ordered the gallo pinto traditional Costa Rica breakfast which consists of black beans, rice and eggs along with a tropical smoothie with mango, passion fruit, and pineapple to wash it down, all the food is grown or raised organically on premises. I am officially in heaven. Off to a morning yoga class, Then on to practice my surfing.  After surfing I indulge in the spa before dinner where they use ingredients such as fresh papaya, coconut oil, avocado and banana all grown right on property.

I was drawn to the resort after I read an article a few years ago about hotels such as the 60 Thompson appointing their rooms with Kiehls products and other high end ammenities, the article mentioned that the Harmony Hotel in Nosara supplies Red Flower products in their guest rooms. What is this Harmony Nosara? I was instantly intrigued, so I started my google search.  The hotel uses Red Flower products because they are not harmful to the grey water system that is just one part of this eco friendly oasis.

There is so much at the Harmony Hotel and I encourage you to check out the website. Please feel free to comment with any questions you might have.
