Tulemar Bungalows and Villas have been rated by Tripadvisor as the #1 Best Hotel in the World for 2022.

This world-renowned property features award-winning Tulemar Bungalows, luxurious Casas, and beautiful Private Houses surrounded by nature, with incredible gardens, walking paths, thriving wildlife, and the ONLY exclusive sandy beach in the region.

Tulemar Gardens Eco-Reserve is a private property on 33-acres of tropical rainforest that extends from the Manuel Antonio National Park. The gardens feature two trails, the north and south, where guests can take a leisurely walk or join one of the guided walking tours. The Gardens extend down to their very own private award-winning beach.

Wildlife can be seen throughout Tulemar Resort, as it is a major stop on the monkey highway through the jungle where three of Costa Rica’s four native monkey species can often be seen swinging through the treetops. Guests can also observe macaws, pelicans, opossums, porcupines, armadillos, tamanduas, bats, and sloths right at their doorstep.

Exclusive Tulemar Beach is the only exclusive beach in Manuel Antonio, accessible through Tulemar Gardens. Guests can swim, enjoy drinks and food from the full-service bar right on the beach, and use provided towels, chairs, and water sports equipment. Tulemar Beach has been awarded Blue Flag status multiple times, meaning tourists can trust its cleanliness and safety.

The Sloth Institute of Costa Rica has collaborated with Tulemar Resort Hotel since 2015 to help ensure the health of these unique and rare animals. Guests can take the Sloth Walk available daily with one of their research assistants to observe sloths in their natural habitat, exclusively for guests.

Tulemar Resort features four swimming pools, an adult-only pool, and three family-friendly pools where guests can take a dip anytime. They can also enjoy drinks by the pool or have lunch poolside at the Tule Cafe.

Tulemar has two restaurants available for guests, serving fine Italian food or bistro-style entrees with terrific views of the Tulemar jungle. Attendees also serve light meals and drinks throughout the day.
