A working coffee plantation 3,900 feet above sea level is the setting for this relaxing resort and spa. Panoramic views of the Central Valley, the lights of San José, and distant mountains can be enjoyed from almost every window on the property—and from the private terraces of the 22 private, curvilinear adobe-style guest villas. Each of these has rattan furnishings, tile floors, and boldly colored walls (adorned with locally made textiles and artwork). The common areas include two 60-foot-long lap pools, a spa offering yoga classes and coconut body wraps, and a restaurant with a large outdoor terrace and many vegetarian choices. The lush grounds have miles of private trails and a number of waterfalls, and are wonderful for exploring.

Room to Book: No. 20 has a palm-leaf roof and a garden that attracts tropical birds.

Doubles from $255, including breakfast.
