“I am delighted these 10 new properties have joined Relais & Châteaux, complementing our existing destinations. Our 27 new members in 2023 demonstrate the dynamism of our network as well as our ongoing effort to consolidate the quality and diversity of the guest experience within our properties. We all share the same vision: to make the world a better place through food and hospitality.” Laurent Gardinier, President of Relais & Châteaux



The charming beach resort of Las Catalinas, on the northeast coast of Costa Rica, is nestled in a preserved tropical forest of 988 acres/400 hectares. Overlooking the bay, Relais & Châteaux Casa Chameleon emerges from lush vegetation, bidding guests to get closer to nature and themselves. Its 21 private villas offer generous space–at least 720 square feet/67 square meters each–and the feeling of being at home, thanks to warm decor that blends contemporary design with local craftsmanship. All villas have a saltwater infinity pool and enjoy breathtaking views of the ocean. While this divine setting suggests relaxation, there is no shortage of activities, on land or water: adventures await at sea and in the jungle, with abundant exotic fauna and lush flora to discover.

In the evening, return to the privacy of your villa for a private yoga class or spa treatment provided by expert hands. Casa Chameleon’s three restaurants offer typical Costa Rican flavors. All dishes are carefully prepared with seasonal produce, sourced sustainably from local fishers and farmers. Expect a stay that is as intoxicating as it is relaxing.
