Delighted to share our new hotel “The Gilded Iguana” in Nosara, Costa Rica.

“Costa Rica Surf Hotel combines past and present to reflect low-key atmosphere of beach town”

Studio Saxe was commissioned to expand and rethink the entire Gilded Iguana Hotel as a destination that addresses modern comforts and adapts to the new wave of travelers coming to the area whilst preserving the rich historical importance of the location.

Architect Benjamin Garcia Saxe explains:

“The Gilded Iguana Hotel is designed as a harmonious “dialogue” between the tropical identity of the past and a new toned-down, unpretentious, and timeless tropical modernity that sits softly in the landscape and reflects the relaxed town atmosphere which most wish to preserve.”
