Gated Community

Ocean-View Convenience & Resort Living at Hermosa Heights

An exclusive development and a true neighborhood, the Hermosa Heights gated community is located in the scenic hills overlooking Playa Hermosa’s breathtaking bay, sweeping from Playa Panamá to Papagayo. Here, an exclusive 45+ acres have become an incredible place to call home, with small and large homesites, state-of-the-art single-family homes, and access to a host of lifestyle amenities.

Founded in a love for this spectacular slice of paradise, Hermosa Heights is built around its soul-stirring vantage points and breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and gorgeous Hermosa Mountain. To that, the community adds a movie theater, gym and spa, restaurants, kids’ club, a dental office, and more – all, surrounded by landscapes that house parrots, howler monkeys, and a host of other tropical wildlife.

An established community of more than two decades, Hermosa Heights offers constructed single-family homes – often, built on one level, for aging in place – as well as an exclusive selection of larger homesites recently offered for sale.

Sprawling 4,500 acres, Hacienda Pinilla is almost a town unto itself. To create an even greater sense of community and friendship, Pinilla has subdivided its acreage into several residential communities – in essence, smaller neighborhoods, each with their own architectural styles, private amenities, and personalities. When trying to figure out which residential community best suits your personality, there’s nothing better than a tour to and through every one. In the meantime, here’s a brief introduction to each.

Los Malinches
This gorgeous, residential community rises into a special collection of Spanish Colonial-styled townhome villas with Guanacaste’s cattle ranch charm. The community’s charming ambiance extends to lush landscaping, tropical courtyards, an infinity-edge pool, and a colonial chapel.
Reserva de Golf
For the golf aficionados among us, there’s nowhere better than spectacular Reserva de Golf, Hacienda Pinilla’s golf-front residential community. Here, in front of holes 4, 5, and 6, you’ll enjoy incredible golf green views, as well as easy access to Hacienda Pinilla’s stables, tennis courts, Beach Club, and other amenities.


Hermosa Heights

Life at Hermosa Heights is a wonderful blend of everyday sensibilities and resort amenities that make you feel like you’ve escaped away to enjoy a well-earned vacation.

And so, while you’ll find here all your requirements for day-to-day life – gated security and controlled access, a resort pool, and walking paths to explore the neighborhood – you’ll also discover the community’s more playful side, which tempts you to play a round of mini-golf, catch the latest blockbuster, order a drink and watch the game, or simply lounge in the Jacuzzi and while the day away.

At the entrance to the Hermosa Heights gated community, 24/7 gated security ensures peace of mind and controlled access, so you can rest easy, whether you’re in residence or away from home.

Hermosa Heights offers the kind of convenience that will matter to your day-to-day life. A network of paved roads connects the community and its amenities – a true boon, as the location and convenience can’t be eclipsed: Hermosa Heights offers onsite dining and nightlife, entertainment, and more (see below), with easy access to shopping, dining, and other amenities in nearby Hermosa and Playas del Coco. Just 30 minutes to the international Guanacaste Airport (LIR)!

While many homes at Hermosa Heights offer private pools, the community’s resort pool serves as a central hub and gathering space for families, neighbors, and friends. The large pool encompasses two levels – one for lounging in the Jacuzzi and another for a steady dedication to fun – as well as two waterslides and a swim-up bar.

Honor your wellness goals at Hermosa Height’s gym and spa (known as Aguas de Hermosa). The onside gym offers weights and cardio equipment, while the luxury spa promises massages, facials, and other treatments. You can even request in-home service!

Whenever you please, book a round at Hermosa Heights’ onsite mini-golf course. The Costa Rica-inspired course promises plenty of themed play and land-and-water challenges, for a hint of nostalgia paired with plain good fun.

You won’t need a home theater when you live in the Hermosa Heights gated community! Unique for the area, the community’s onsite movie theater – Embassy Club de Artes – offers stadium-style movie seating (100 seats!) and a large movie screen, and offers a rotating schedule of new releases, blockbusters, and soon-to-be favorites every day! The movie theater is also open to the public.
When you don’t want to cook for yourself, head to The Ranchito, the community’s poolside grill, which serves everything from a hearty Tico breakfast to lunch and dinner. You can also grab a great bite to eat at The Sports Bar, an American-style bar where the game is (almost) always on.
The trails at Hermosa Heights climb through the community’s 45 hilly acres to afford insight into the area’s forest ecosystems, stunning views of the Pacific and surrounds (including Playa Panamá and Papagayo), and, on a clear day, vistas that reach straight into distant Nicaraguan landscapes.
If you have kids (or when the grandkids are visiting), you’ll likely spend plenty of time at Playa Hermosa, only a short walk away. But when you’re not at the beach, the kids will likely be at the onsite Kids’ Club, appropriately outfitted with a netted trampoline, playground equipment, a basketball court, and a games room with ping-pong and mini-pool tables.

Residential Living

at Hermosa Heights

From the outset, the Hermosa Heights gated community was designed as a residential resort community, with an emphasis on the residential.

Here, you won’t find palatial neighborhoods or warrens of internal roads; instead, you’ll discover a welcoming and truly intimate community, where you can’t help but feel you’ve found you place in the world and met the neighbors you were destined to have.

It all began when Dr. Richard Levy first visited in 2000, falling in love with Playa Hermosa while still seeking something more – something that felt like home, while boasting all the luxury amenities you could imagine. A dream, conceived; a community, born.

The result is Hermosa Heights and its 45+ acres, where you’ll find just 80 homesites, now almost completely built. This is one community, united in its desire to live in harmony with nature, to plan for the environment, and to blend luxury and the great outdoors into one cohesive neighborhood and community.

Hermosa Heights


Hermosa Heights is, indeed, designed as a cohesive community, celebrating differences while featuring a united dedication to tropical-modern architecture and a hint of whimsy.

As you enter the community, you’re greeted by a smattering of octagonal cottages, which serve as short-term rentals for visiting friends and family, as well as for the public. Climb into the hills, though, and you’ll discover a world of well-designed homes and contemporary architecture that respects the environment and celebrates spectacular mountain and Pacific Ocean Views.

Here, every home is different but you will find a common, organic element that runs through each design: Homes at the Hermosa Heights gated community feature modern design that seamlessly melds raw concrete with natural elements, resulting in a striking contrast that epitomizes both contemporary aesthetics and living essentials.

Each space is meticulously crafted to place nature at the forefront, with expansive glass panels offering breathtaking vistas of the ocean and volcanoes, and interior gardens that blur the lines between indoors and out. Chic, carefully selected details and finishes – from premium ceramics and tropical hardwoods to state-of-the-art fixtures and exquisite, Costa Rican handcrafted woodwork – paint a narrative of refined organic sophistication.
