Bamboo Villas

The Bamboo Villas consist of 3 individual free standing villas. These villas are unique and luxurious for couples (or singles!) and perfect for honeymoons or romantic getaways. Due to safety and bedding restrictions, the villas are not suitable for children.

The indoor/outdoor design is a mix of mid-century modern and a tropical beach house spanning over 3 stories. The main floor includes the outdoor living area with a large daybed, twin sun loungers, a writing desk, bathroom with an outdoor soaking tub and separate outdoor shower, and a large ocean view plunge pool.

The second floor is an open air mezzanine with a kitchenette complete with refrigerator, 2 burner stove, microwave, sink, coffee maker, and kitchenware. It is perfect for making a quick meal or drinks during your stay, and also large enough allow us to bring in a private chef for a special romantic dinner. The dining area seats 2-4 guests, so enjoy the space or invite friends over for the fun!

On the third floor you will find the master bedroom enclosed in air conditioning to keep you cool on those hot Costa Rican nights. Complete with a king bed, seating area, TV, balcony, large bath with a walk-in raindrop shower, twin vanities, separate toilet area, and a spacious walk-in closet for your belongings. Don’t forget the incredible views!

The Bamboo Villas are located inside Tulemar.

  • Marie Marseille, France

    These villas are incredible! They are the newest addition to Tulemar and are perfect for couples. Stunning views, modern design, and open air - you're in the jungle, seeing the monkeys, but with all the luxuries of an upscale villa. We had our own small pool which was perfect - some days we never left the villa! Heaven!

  • Lisa Santa Fe, New Mexico

    We spent the last stop of our honeymoon in Manuel Antonio and more precisely in Tulemar. They offered these brand new Bamboo Villas (I think we were the first customers in those houses) and they were a delight! Private pool, plenty of space and an incredible ocean view. There are 3 twin villas and all three have an amazing view of the ocean. In the morning we saw many monkeys around the house and the private beach of the resort is very nice and well cared for. I would like to return next year to spend more time in these homes.

  • Nick Fresno, California

    My partner and I stayed in Bamboo Villa number 3 and wow, what an amazing place! The outdoor soaking tub and shower with a private pool? Can't ask for more! The kitchen on the 2nd level had everything you need for a meal in. The bedroom on the top floor was a spa experience with a huge bathroom with a shower that could fit 6 people! Our house manager Brian was there to help with questions about dinning and adventures. Such an amazing place

  • Jennifer Charleston, South Carolina

    We stayed in the Bamboo Villas for 6 nights and it was amazing! Book this place! It it nestled right in the middle of the jungle, nothing like it! The private beach was amazing, they have boogie boards and kayaks for you to use, the staff was so friendly and helpful. Hiking thru the grounds is so beautiful-we saw so many animals. We had monkeys visiting us every morning on our balcony, saw sloths, macaws, toucans, butterflies everywhere. Just incredible, like being in paradise. There are 4 resort pools, but nothing beat sitting in our own pool looking out at the ocean! This is truly the most beautiful place I have ever been and we hope to come back some day! I highly recommend this!

  • Shelly Dallas, Texas

    These villas are beyond words! I have never experienced another vacation rental like it; totally open air, private, super romantic, and situated in the jungle (wildlife everywhere!) with the best views I've ever seen. It's beautiful, modern, but with all the comforts of home - and then some! A kitchenette and good sized fridge, stove top if you want to cook at home, full wireless, AC in the bedroom (the only place you really need it) and a HUGE his and her bathroom with rain shower.

    The resort itself is like its own world, you're right in the middle of Manuel Antonio - walking distance to shops, restaurants, grocery stores, etc. - but when you step inside the Tulemar gates you walk into the jungle. Monkeys, sloths, lizards, scarlet macaws, toucans... and more. As if all of this wasn't perfect enough, the service was the best we've ever experienced. We can't wait to come back!

  • Frederick Augusta, Georgia

    This is honestly the best hotel I have ever stayed in.

    I stayed in their brand new Bamboo Villas with stunning views of the Pacific ocean from my balcony. Macaws and others birds flew past the window as the sun set.

    This new Bungalows are amazing ... perfect for couples or Solo travelers like me.

    The design is a mix of Mid Century Modern combined with the Costa Rica Nature.

    The views are unbelievable and the view from me balcony was better than anywhere else in MA.

    The Hotel staff was wonderful! Very friendly and helpful with answering questions about the different excursion to do.

    The property is safe and has several security people placed around it. The restaurants offer good food at average prices.

    If you're looking for fantastic views, amazing service, wildlife literally jumping out of the trees around you, then Tulemar Bungalows is the place to stay.

    I will definitely recommend Tulemar and their new Bamboo Villa to all my friends and family ... Pura Vida !!!
