The development program for Diamante has been designed as low density to allow for maximum privacy, ultimate Costa Rican luxury and preservation of the immaculate land.
The vision for the destination is to create a retreat that will serve to enhance the site rather than dominate it. To this end the buildings are envisioned to be reduced in scale, separated from one another, and introduced onto the site with minimal impact to the existing flora and fauna. The circulation system has been designed to take advantage of existing paths on site and to follow the topography to minimize the disturbance of the natural terrain.
The Mojagua Bowl is a retreat within Diamante that provides an experience of unbridled luxury and adventure in a pristine secluded natural setting. The development within the bowl is designed in celebration of the Costa Rican environment with opportunities for adventure, exercise, meditation and yoga. The Mojagua Bowl is where the exclusive sandy beach meets the forest floor, where streams become waterfalls and the wildlife flourishes in the trees. To maintain the resort feeling the architecture is carefully broken down into components and clusters, so as not to overwhelm the natural environment.
The hotel site is located on the most prominent landform on the site commanding 180 degree views of the Pacific Ocean including the beautiful offshore islands. Equally impressive is the inland view from above the tree canopy toward the hilltops and down to the forest floor. The hotel master plan has been carefully created to take advantage of the steep topography while allowing a comfortable pedestrian oriented experience for all generations. Where appropriate, the guestrooms are provided with terrace pools to enhance the indoor/outdoor experience.
The master plan has been developed to create a luxury boutique hotel and branded residential retreat, set within the coastal forests of Costa Rica. All proposed lots will have the opportunity for dramatic ocean views, privacy and exclusivity. With only 16 lots proposed in the Mojagua Bowl the natural environment will remain the focus of the destination.
