More than just a nature lover's paradise, Casa Chameleon at Mal País invites you to take part in a bespoke spa experience in a remote part of the Costa Rican jungle. Access requires an adventurous 4×4 drive, but once you’re in Mal País, you’ll find a quirky little beach town with just the right blend of locals, surfers, yoginis and barefoot wanderers.

Your villa is your home away from home with a vibe inspired by the heart of a natural explorer looking for a one-of-a-kind experience. Each villa is seamlessly integrated into the lush ecosystem that surrounds it—from open architecture to a private plunge pool. Once you leave your villa, adventure awaits both within the jungles and under the glistening waters. 



Start your day off right with a swim in your private plunge pool followed by a fresh locally sourced breakfast. Sink deeper into tropical bliss with a spa experience located in the comfort of your own villa. Clear your mind with yoga or meditation surrounded by the warmth of a tropical breeze. Experience all this on a 3-night wellness retreat in the Blue Zone of Mal País, a place where researchers have discovered a veritable fountain of youth. All that is left to do is simply select the spa treatments of your choice.

  • Luxury accommodation in a private villa with ocean view and your own personal plunge pool 
  • Generous amount of resort credits for a series of scrubs, massages and salon services performed in your private villa
  • Explore countless adventures and cultural experiences in the heart of Costa Rica's tropical wilderness
  • Keep yourself busy with daily resort activities including yoga, fitness classes and watersports
  • Courtesy shuttle to and from the airport

Coming to Casa Chameleon is a rite of relaxation on its own. But there is no on-site spa so the hotel brings the spa to the privacy of your villa with pampering couples massages, deep tissue massages, body wraps and scrubs. 

Jungle, Ocean & You
