Property Description

Reduced from $3,400,000. Playa Ballena Resort property is looking for a successful real estate developer.

The property

The property is directly on the Costanera highway and consists of two pieces of land across from each other. Two pieces of titled land on the beachside and one on the mountainside. Its closeness to downtown Uvita makes it economically viable. The green and lush rainforest environment make it a pleasurable sight and recreational experience for guests and visitors. In total the property is 16.5 acres (6.6 Hectares). It is perfectly and magnificently positioned with ocean views of fascinating islands of the Marine Park, The structures were constructed by Gentler Architects, a leading global design, planning, and strategic consulting firm with esteemed and unrivaled experience in the industry throughout the globe. Gensler is committed to sustainable design around the world and in Costa Rica. This property is a masterpiece by an outstanding builder. The Resort was planned to be constructed on two properties that are separated by the Costanera highway, Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast highway.

The location

This property’s strategic location makes it of immense economic benefit as a hotel property or a development property. Makara was originally planned as a Spa Community celebrating the culture and heritage of Costa Rica. The design was a collaborative effort between Gentler Architects and Bernard Judge known for outstanding design and concept.

The project is located in Playa Ballena which is part of the spectacular Marino Ballena Nacional Park, the only marine park in the country and the largest breeding ground of humpback whales in the pacific. In front of Makara sits four small islands, an easy kayak trip from the beach is part of the largest reef on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica.

A hotel

Makara Playa is a beautiful fully permitted twelve-unit suite/hotel (4 fully designed buildings with flexible architecture plans). Makara Playa was the first step and the first building was completed and has been running as a 5-suite hotel master house for three years. The building was constructed with a high 70% recycled cement and only sustainable, local wood and low-level lighting for environmental friendliness and natural attraction.


This beautiful Playa Ballena Resort property also has an office with a security guard/manager apartment and a laundry room and kitchen for the housekeeping staff. These facilities make it a ready-to-use luxury hotel property. The additional three buildings are construction-ready and would only need permits to be reapplied. The building has a septic tank. There would be a treatment plant as the development moves forward and the hotel uses a private concession and approved well from the sister property across the street. This property could be bought as a small hotel with more land to add on or as a developmental property. Either way, a buyer would get maximum property utility.
