Latitude 10 is a small resort – there are just five roomy villas – dedicated to the comfort and well-being of visitors who are looking to be embraced by the natural world during their stay, who welcome the intrusion of animals, birds and even the odd insect into their experience, and who enjoy the feel of being a guest in a private home.
For this is not a hotel, per se; nor is it a glamorous camp site: it can only be compared to a luxury beach house. Service is discreet but very willing to please – with only five rooms, staff are able to devote their full attention to their guests. Breakfast is provided but there’s no restaurant; the management will bring in a chef to cook just for you if you so choose.
The spacious, individual and very secluded villas are simply decorated with high-quality polished wood furnishings. You almost feel you are sleeping out of doors – the windows on all sides have no glass, and the bathroom is also al fresco (a curious iguana might appear while you are taking a shower). All the buildings in the resort are immaculate.
The location is stunning, right on the beach at Santa Teresa, a remote former fishing village turned hip surf town where you can ride the waves, go horse riding, take a canopy tour or fish... but the resort itself is a place to relax, with massages and yoga classes on the agenda.
