Is it the sea-spray-soaked air, the sunset strolls on wild beaches, rejuvenating yoga sessions in the jungle, exhilarating surf adventures or delectable farm-to-table dining? Or is it knowing that you are making a difference in the world by choosing to live in a sustainable way?
Let’s find out as we journey deep into a coveted Blue Zone at Pasha Beachfront Estate.

Welcome to Pasha!
As you step into the exclusive embrace of Pasha Beachfront Estate, you're immersed in barefoot luxury, seclusion and nature. This beachfront haven was built by a family who fell in love with this enchanting spot, where the jungle meets the sea.
Now, they want to share it with you. Welcome to their sanctuary!
Pasha is the largest beachfront villa in the coveted Santa Teresa region. Set amid nine acres of verdant beachfront jungle, the estate offers sumptuous luxury living, with four pools, six kitchens, 200 metres of beachfront and natural tropical gardens brimming with flowers and fruit.
Unwind in your luxurious four-bedroom house, or choose one of the three standalone two-bedroom villas all constructed of natural, non-toxic materials. A staff of 19 professionals are at your service, including a personal host, a team of chefs and a certified licensed nature guide. Whether you’re gathering with a group of friends or planning a multigenerational gathering, Pasha is the ultimate luxury escape.
Wander down to the sweep of wild beach each day. Surf, swim, stretch and unwind — you can do it all at Pasha.
Bask on a Wild Beach
Steps from Pasha Beachfront Estate down a private pathway, you can sink your toes in the silver sands of Playa Hermosa. Dive into the azure water for a refreshing swim, learn to surf, stroll along the shore and search for treasures in the tide pools.
Pasha is also minutes away from world-class surf breaks. Try your hand at riding the waves on one of Pasha’s custom-made Twin Fish or longboards.
Prefer to take it easy? Pick a spot under the swaying palms and let the soothing sounds of the ocean serenade you to sleep.
Feel the Flow of Indoor-Outdoor Living
At Pasha Beachfront Estate, the elegant indoor spaces blend effortlessly with the tropical gardens. Here, you are intimately connected with nature.
Feel the cool sea breezes flowing through the expansive living areas. Listen as the sloshing surf lulls you to sleep, and inhale the fragrance of tropical flowers in the garden. Pasha blurs the lines between the luxurious interiors and the vibrant natural beauty that surrounds you.
At night, you can hear a symphony of frogs chiming, and in the morning, you’ll awake to the sweet songs of the birds and the surf.
Indulge in the Fresh Flavours of a Blue Zone
At Pasha, healthy living is a way of life. Start your days in paradise with a complimentary breakfast. Fresh tropical fruits, organic Costa Rican coffee, and seasonal Costa Rican specialties are all on the menu.

Upon request, your personal concierge will also stock the pantry with all your favourite foods.
Pasha also actively participates in cultivating a 40-hectare regenerative farm in Costa Rica, yielding organic turmeric, bacopa, moringa, holy basil, ginger and ashwagandha.
Take a Cool Dip
