Villa Paraiso Named a Finalist for Condé Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence

2017 marks the third year the prestigious Condé Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence will recognize Villa Paraiso.

Condé Nast Johansens serves as “the leading reference guide for independent travelers.” Readers can peruse its global collection of luxury hotels, spas and venues that have been recommended by “Local Experts.” Feature in the guide is by invitation only, making it a true honor for Villa Paraiso to be included.

The Awards for Excellence were “created to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across [these] recommended properties.” This makes the Condé Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence the source for the “very best of the best” in travel. We are excited to have Villa Paraiso chosen as one of two finalists in its category: Best Small & Exclusive Property in Central & South America.

A Look at Our Luxury Costa Rica Villa

“Costa Rican tropical-luxe home on the outskirts of the jungle.”  – Condé Nast Johansens

Located in Manuel Antonio, a quaint village on the central Pacific Ocean shore, Villa Paraiso sits on a hilltop just outside the Costa Rican jungle. This gives guests a unique view of vibrant green rainforest, smooth, sandy white beaches, and crystal blue water. All of the scenery can be easily enjoyed from the property’s 75-foot infinity pool, wraparound balconies or expansive barbecue area.


The experts at Condé Nast Johansens say they “love” the expansive barbeque area, and they’ve deemed it “amazing for events such as family gatherings, reunions and wedding celebrations.” Many guests choose Villa Paraiso to celebrate these occasions since it can comfortably seat 50 guests for an intimate reception. But, most choose Villa Paraiso to simply get away and relax in paradise and luxury.

Villa Paraiso can host 12 family members or friends in its five en-suite bedrooms. When they rest, they do so peacefully knowing they’re in the secure confines of the gated and exclusive La Reserva private estate. And when they wake, they do so to the same stunning views, provided through floor-to-ceiling picture windows.

Meals can be prepared by guests in Villa Paraiso’s sleek, well-appointed kitchen. Or in-house staff can arrange for the property’s visiting chef to provide a gourmet feast. No request is too big  for this five-star service team. From wine tastings to fishing excursions and beyond, they welcome the opportunity to fulfill every desire of your Costa Rica vacation.

We would love to see you at the hilltop hideaway that is Villa Paraiso or another of our first class luxury Costa Rica villas. Contact our travel specialists via email or by phone at 1-888-512-9832 to discuss your magical vacation. And don’t forget to cast your vote for the very best of the best in travel with Condé Nast Johansens.


Congratulations and best wishes to all finalists of Condé Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence 2017!
