Guest Perspective

“Staying at Hotel Belmar was a soul-enriching experience! Besides the breathtaking surroundings, their cultural programs filled my heart and helped me better grasp the nuances of Costa Rica as a destination. Choosing this property for more than just (amazing) nature was a fantastic decision.”

Artist Residency

Hotel Belmar’s Art Residency is a visionary project that bridges the creative spark with Monteverde’s natural exuberance and the uniqueness of a travel experience.  Invitees from diverse artistic backgrounds engage in a dynamic process that involves the hotel’s human talent, its neighbors, and its guests.  The artist is encouraged to enjoy the area’s forest, eco-diversity, and daily flow.  All while immersed in a charming hospitality setting that elicits a sense of balance, elegance, and community.

The hotel’s spaces become a vibrant studio.  The artist influences visitors and staff and the latter two influence the artist’s output.  At the conclusion of the residency, a final exhibit punctuates the unique experience that captures the essence of raw nature and human connection.
