Origins

At the heart of Hotel Belmar, you will find the amazing Belmar family; an inspiring mother and children, running the hotel with a genuine passion for hospitality and dedication to protecting their fragile eco-system.  Hotel Belmar is the love-child of Costa Rican owner, Vera Zeledon and Pedro Belmar who settled in Monteverde after a decade of living in Austria - hence the Austrian chalet design inspiration. Hotel Belmar is not only an original pioneer of tourism in Monteverde, it is also the first to receive the Costa Rican certification for carbon-neutral and has achieved the coveted award for 5 levels of Sustainability.

The Review

Located in Costa Rica’s lush cloud forest, nestled high in the mountaintops of the Monteverde Reserve, Hotel Belmar offers its guests unique experiences full of natural wonder, simple elegance and impeccable service. While you relax on the balconies of this quaint Tirol-inspired gem, virtually floating in the sky, sipping an intricate garden-to-glass cocktail or a Madre Tierra café con leche, the staff of Hotel Belmar is passionately perfecting this rare experience. Daily striving to reduce their carbon footprint, and educate guests and the local community on sustainable practices, Hotel Belmar leads the way towards a better, more conscious world. 

If you’re looking for a truly unique adventure, full of multifaceted experiences, look no further!   Relax and rejuvenate with a hot stone massage, daily yoga and a fresh local juice from the juice bar.  Adventure into the wilds of the private reserve trails, and you’ll find a wondrous waterfall, thousands of species of butterflies, and endless wildlife moving around you. Enjoy the mouth-watering food and drink creations of the highly-talented chefs at Restaurante Celajes.  A true farm to table experience awaits, as all ingredients are grown in the hotel’s organic garden or Madre Tierra, the Belmar family farm. The gastronomy-focused cocktail bar is unmatched in Central America. Drinking is an experience at Hotel Belmar. With cordials created directly from the gardens, you’ll taste fresh flavours and unique combinations in every sip.  Garnished with fresh herbs and edible flowers, every drink is designed to stimulate all 5 senses. How can it get better than that?  Well, just add an on-site micro-brewery to the mix and you’ve got yourself a unique drinking experience.

If you’re looking to just escape from daily life, one step inside your room, and you’ll never want to leave. The luxurious wood and hand-painted tile together create an elegant yet cozy atmosphere.  Climb into your divine bed and watch the sun sink from the sky into a star-filled night.  Wake up to endless panoramic views even Van Gogh would envy.   

Hotel Belmar is not just a romantic getaway, a relaxation retreat and a nature preserve adventure in the clouds.  Hotel Belmar is an inspiring, flourishing symbol of preservation and passion for the world around us.
