AUTENTIK™ Cala Luna - Tamarindo, Costa Rica

The mark of a luxury boutique hotel Tamarindo, Costa Rica Cala Luna’s founders, Antonio Pilurzu and Grietje and Els Depypere, long dreamed of having a luxury hotel in an enchanted locale. After many happy years of living in Sardinia on a beautiful island in the south of Italy, they decided to pursue new horizons, and traveled to Costa Rica. There they rented a car and for several months traveled the length of the Pacific and Atlantic coasts, finally deciding on Playa Langosta, Tamarindo, as the ideal site for their new boutique hotel.

More than 12 years ago they founded the Hotel and Villas Cala Luna, whose name is inspired by the Bahia de la Luna (Moon Bay) in Sardinia. They planted a wealth of native trees on the largely scrubby terrain, dotted with only a few Guacimo trees, and little by little cultivated the natural paradise it is today.
